This agreement (the Agreement) is made and entered into by and between Client and MEDUSA Radiometrics BV (hereafter referred to as MEDUSA). In consideration of the mutual covenants made herein, the parties agree as follows:


The following capitalized terms, when used in this Agreement, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this Section:

  1. "Product" shall mean the electronic hardware, printed circuit boards, embedded firmware and software to be developed by MEDUSA pursuant to this Agreement in accordance with the Specifications, together with user manuals, other documentation and any other ancillary materials to be developed by MEDUSA pursuant hereto.
  2. "Order form" shall mean the "Work"assignment defined in a design document attached to this contract

Other capitalized terms shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the body of this Agreement.



Client hereby retains MEDUSA to design and develop, and MEDUSA hereby agrees to design and develop the Product in accordance with (1) the project outline set forth on the delivered Scope of Work and/or (2) the Product Specifications developed jointly by Client and MEDUSA. The parties shall work together in a joint effort to accomplish the tasks and objectives set forth in the Product Specifications. MEDUSA shall be responsible for delivering and performing only those professional services specifically identified in the Product Specifications. Any modifications to the Product Specifications shall be pursuant to the Change Order process set forth below.


In the event Client desires to make any modifications to the Product Specifications or a deliverable, Client must provide a detailed change order in writing. This may be provided in the form of email, certified letter, or via technologies and/or tools provided by MEDUSA. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this Agreement and a Change Order, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.


Any support and maintenance services, updates, versions, or new releases shall be contracted under a separate agreement between MEDUSA and Client. Maintenance and support rights or obligations for any third party products or equipment that are used in the Product and are available through the respective vendor(s)/manufacture(s) of such content and equipment shall be assigned by MEDUSA to Client. MEDUSA shall not use any intellectual property of any third-party in the Product without Client's written consent. 


Client agrees to perform all tasks assigned to Client as set forth in this Agreement, the Product Specifications, or a Change Order, and to provide all assistance and cooperation to MEDUSA in order to complete timely and efficiently the Product. MEDUSA shall not be deemed in breach of this Agreement, the Product Specifications, a Change Order, or any milestone in the event MEDUSA's failure to meet its responsibilities and time schedules is caused by Client's failure to meet (or delay in) its responsibilities and time schedules set forth in the System Specifications, a Change Order, or this Agreement. In the event of any such failure or delay by Client, (i) all of MEDUSA's time frames, milestones, and/or deadlines shall be extended by the product of the number of days of Client's failure multiplied by two (2); and (ii) Client shall continue to make timely payments to MEDUSA as set forth in this Agreement, the Product Specifications, and any Change Order(s) as if all time frames, schedules, or deadlines had been completed by MEDUSA. Client shall be responsible for making, at its own expense, any changes or additions to Client's current systems, software, and hardware that may be required to support operation of the Product. Unless otherwise contracted with MEDUSA or reflected in a Change Order, Client shall be responsible for initially populating and then maintaining any databases on the Product as well as providing all content for the Product. With the execution of a Change Order specifically asking MEDUSA to assesses the Client's systems, software and hardware from time to time, MEDUSA may agree to perform this function at normal MEDUSA rates.


Client and MEDUSA shall assign a Project Manager for managing the implementation of the Product. The Project Managers shall be responsible for: (i) managing the day-today activities under this Agreement, (ii) serving as liaisons between the parties, (iii) assigning and scheduling the appropriate personnel to perform all of the required services under this Agreement, and (iv) authorizing and executing any and all Change Order(s). Client hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Client Project Manager shall have the proper authority and power to execute and perform the duties and responsibilities set forth in this Section. MEDUSA hereby acknowledges and agrees that the MEDUSA Project Manager shall have the proper authority and power to execute and perform the duties and responsibilities set forth in this Section.


MEDUSA reserves the right, and Client hereby agrees, to assign subcontractors to this project to insure that the terms of this agreement are met as well as on-time completion.


Client hereby grants MEDUSA the right to use the name and service marks of Client in its marketing materials or other oral, electronic, or written promotions, which shall include naming Client as a client of MEDUSA and a brief scope of services provided. Any use of MEDUSA logos or links on Client's Product must be approved in writing by Client. Either party may elect to issue a press release related to this Agreement. In doing so, any release shall be approved by the other party and such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.


Client agrees to pay MEDUSA according to the payment terms defined in the order form. If the parameters of the Work changes, MEDUSA will inform Client and the parties can discuss and agree upon any additional charges. MEDUSA shall invoice Client at the ending of every month for the work completed in that month, unless otherwise agreed. MEDUSA is responsible for the payment of all federal, state and/or local taxes with respect to the services it performs for the client as an independent contractor. The Client will not treat MEDUSA, or any of its employees, as an employee for any purpose.


Unless otherwise specified in writing, invoices not paid within 30 days of the invoice date will accrue interest at 1.5% per month. MEDUSA may suspend all services on fifteen (15) days written notice until the amounts outstanding are paid in full.



All materials, including, but not limited to, schematics, PCB layouts, firmware, software, programs, source code and object code, comments to the source or object code, specifications, documents, abstracts and summaries thereof (collectively, the “Products”) developed by MEDUSA in connection with the provision of the Services to Client, or jointly by Client and MEDUSA, or by MEDUSA pursuant to specifications or instructions provided by Client, shall belong exclusively to Client. MEDUSA acknowledges that the Products shall be deemed “works made for hire” by MEDUSA for Client, and, therefore, shall be the exclusive property of Client. To the extent the Products are not deemed “works made for hire” under applicable law, MEDUSA hereby irrevocably assigns and transfers to Client all right, title and interest in and to the Products, including, without limitation, all patent and copyright interests, and agrees to execute all documents reasonably requested by Client for the purpose of applying for and obtaining domestic and foreign patent and copyright registrations.


Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, any hardware designs, software routines, firmware routines, methodologies, processes, software libraries, tools or technologies created, adapted or used by MEDUSA in its business generally, including all associated intellectual property rights (collectively, the “Development Tools”), shall be and remain the sole property of MEDUSA, and Customer shall have no interest in or claim to the Development Tools, except as necessary to exercise its rights in the Product. In addition, notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, MEDUSA shall be free to use any ideas, concepts, or know-how developed or acquired by MEDUSA during the performance of this Agreement to the extent obtained and retained by MEDUSA’s personnel as impression and general learning. Subject to and limited by Client’s intellectual property rights described in Section 4.1 above, nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to preclude MEDUSA from using the Development Tools for use with third parties for the benefit of MEDUSA.


In addition to any other fees set forth in this Agreement, Client shall be required to purchase any applicable third party licenses for any third party products that are necessary for MEDUSA to design and develop the Product. Such third party products may include, but are not limited to: embedded software compliers, product specific development hardware or any other copyrighted work which MEDUSA deems necessary to purchase on behalf of Client to design and develop the Product. In the event any such third party product exceeds EUR 500.00 per product, MEDUSA shall obtain Client's prior written consent before incorporating such third party product into the Product. MEDUSA shall provide Client with a list of all third party products upon launch of the Product.
