GENERAL DISCUSSION:  Terms “Platform”, “Software” and “Project” refer to the software being created in this contract.  You, “programmer”, “outsourcer”, “worker” and similar, are terms to identify the person(s) completing this Project, who will be paid the contract price by milestones as above.  We, us, our, “Think”, “TWM” and similar identify the copyright owner who is paying the contract price for the completion of this work.
All completed work must be updated every 5 days to our site(s).
Work will ONLY BE ASSESSED from our own site and must show progress each 5 days.
The programmer is required to resolve all issues relating to the layout and use of the platform, so that the platform is consistent throughout all parts in appearance, logic, elegance and practicality. In addition, the platform must be intuitive, responsive (quick in operation), procedures be well laid out, responsive for tablet/phone use and user-friendly, to our satisfaction.  We have purchased a bootstrap theme Limitless. Our platform is to have the same look and feel as limitless with an accordion menu on the left.  Our in-house team will work with the programmer to jointly design, produce art and additional PSD files as needed, but you are responsible for providing all PSD files and similar elements of art or programming to complete the project.
The programmer understands that the information provided at  http://twm.im/employment/smsreply  (and associated or linked pages) represents the foundation for the platform and not the absolute specifications for the project.  The agreement to complete the work includes the 3 sections of information provided, being Terms (here), Q&A, and Specifications.  There is a hierarchy to the information where the Specifications section is the ruling information if there is dispute, conflict or confusion.
The final development will be a cooperative partnership between the successful applicant of the work, and us.  Change and variation are likely through the development of the software, and this has been allowed for in the contract value, unless it entails a distinctly different functionality as determined by us.  Where we determine there is a distinctly different functionality, additional costs and time for development will be provided, by means of hourly work as previously mentioned.
Additional work, as set out above, must be agreed to in writing before commencement, with an estimation of hours  and total cost.  Hourly rate estimates cannot be exceeded by more than 20% and must be recorded in a appropriate manner to our satisfaction and the work to be completed to our satisfaction, as determined by us, before payment is made.
The programmer is required to provide 12 months of free ongoing support on all aspects of the software from the date of final payment, in a professional and timely manner.
The amount for each milestone will be paid without delay upon the successful completion of the work per milestone. The funds will be released to the programmer after the milestone is functioning bug free and to our satisfaction on our own site.  Failure to adhere to these terms may result in cancellation of the project without prior warning.

DO NOT APPLY for this project unless you have read, understood and agree to the terms above.
