Any collaboration or cooperation with any interested party is accompanied by my coding of related scripts or programs.
This is true almost always, for example:
- When automating something special for you.
- When providing some hosting for you. Hosting is always free (provided "AS IS") and the only weakly related cost is based on the cost of license for specific scripts for you to manage this hosting.
- When I do administration for you then administration work is free, but I charge for a license for custom script helping me to do administration. It may be even a single line like: perl -e "do some work".
All deliverables are ALWAYS provided under a specific license agreement text agreed by both parties in advance and executed at the moment of providing deliverables to you.
I NEVER charge for a service, work or job done or something like this, because you do NOT hire me from a legal point of view. You are only granted a license at the end of each phase of our cooperation.
Please understand that our collaboration shall NEVER get me into debt(s). If you are going to ask me to do some work and then claim results, then please just even NEVER TRY doing this to avoid wasting my valuable time. Deliverables are provided phase by phase paid AFTER completion of each phase. So if you find you are NOT satisfied with results of a few first phases then just end our collaboration (like a job staff leaves you) and do not EVER try to ask me for a refund, because when my time is already spent on doing some work on YOUR REQUEST it is a resource NOT recoverable back to me. If you decide to go ahead towards a new phase after earlier one completed then it automatically means you accept a quallity of my work in a previous phase of work.
PLEASE NEVER TRY TO BEGIN ANY COOPERATION WITH ME IF YOU PLAN TO ASK ME FOR ANY MONEY, REFUND, AND PENALTY, TO MAKE ME ANY DEBT OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS! IF YOU FIND THIS IS NOT COMFORTABLE THEN PLEASE JUST LEAVE THE AULIX.COM WEBSITE ASAP AND NEVER CONTACT ME.
ALL PAYMENTS FOR LICENSES ARE DONE AFTER WORK COMPLETION AND TESTING A PHASE RESULTS. THAT IS WHY ALL PAYMENTS FROM YOU FOR LICENSES ARE FINAL AND NOT REFUNDABLE. ANY DELIVERABLES ARE LICENSED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS.
