This website is owned and operated by Lyn Wilder-Dean. These Terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use my website and services as offered by me. This website offers visitors the opportunity to independently contract executive assistant services via telecommute. By accessing or using the website of my service, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.
In order to use my website and/or receive my services, you must be at least 18 years of age, or of the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction, and possess the legal authority, right and freedom to enter into these Terms as a binding agreement. You are not allowed to use this website and/or receive services if doing so is prohibited in your country or under any law or regulation applicable to you.
Contracts are for number of hours of work to be completed. Some of the tasks an EA does in an hour are closed-ended and can be quantified ("I have X number of unread emails in my inbox and I need you to screen them for me, I will pay you for Y number of hours to get through them all.") If we contract for a quantifiable task like this and I do not get through all X emails in Y hours, you will not receive an invoice. I did not fulfill the contract. However, other tasks are open-ended and qualitative in nature ("Do research on potential sources of 501(c)4 funding for the lobbying group we're considering starting up for Z hours, and tell me what you find"). Under those circumstances, it may be best to break the project down into smaller increments of time to make sure my performance is going how you would prefer and give constructive feedback, because you will be billed for Z hours once they are completed, even if results are poor. The timeframe in which Z hours must be completed will be negotiated on a per contract basis (my availability is generally evenings, weekends, and holidays, but I do have multiple clients and you may have to be placed on a wait list).
The prices I charge for using my services are listed on every page of the website. I reserve the right to change my prices for clients at any time, and to correct pricing errors that may inadvertently occur. That being said, I will do my best to only change pricing for new clients coming in, and hold true for you to your price that you came in at. Nobody likes it when someone alters the terms of the deal.
The fee for the services and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of the service, such as taxes and possible transaction fees, will be charged on a monthly basis to your payment method.
I may, without prior notice, change the services; stop providing the services or any features of the services I offer; or create limits for the services. I may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend access to the services without notice and liability for any reason, or for no reason.
The Service and most materials therein or transferred thereby, including, software, images, text, patents, trademarks, service marks, copyrights, photographs, audio, videos, music and all Intellectual Property Rights related thereto, are the exclusive property of Lyn Wilder-Dean. Except as explicitly provided herein, nothing in these Terms shall be deemed to create a license in or under any such Intellectual Property Rights, and you agree not to sell, license, rent, modify, distribute, copy, reproduce, transmit, publicly display, publicly perform, publish, adapt, edit or create derivative works thereof. Some graphics were taken from the public domain via the Open Clip Art Library.
I may permanently or temporarily terminate or suspend your access to the service without notice and liability for any reason, including if in our sole determination you violate any provision of these Terms or any applicable law or regulations. You may discontinue use and request to cancel your account and/or any services at any time.
You agree to indemnify and hold Lyn Wilder-Dean harmless from any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including attorneys’ fees), made against them by any third party due to, or arising out of, or in connection with your use of the website or any of the services offered on the website.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Lyn Wilder-Dean, be liable for any indirect, punitive, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including without limitation, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, arising out of or relating to the use of, or inability to use, the service.
To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Lyn Wilder-Dean assumes no liability or responsibility for any (i) errors, mistakes, or inaccuracies of content; (ii) personal injury or property damage, of any nature whatsoever, resulting from your access to or use of our service; and (iii) any unauthorized access to or use of our secure servers and/or any and all personal information stored therein.
I reserve the right to modify these terms from time to time at my sole discretion. Therefore, you should review these page periodically. When I change the Terms in a material manner, I will notify you that material changes have been made to the Terms. Your continued use of the Website or my service after any such change constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms. If you do not agree to any of these terms or any future version of the Terms, do not use or access (or continue to access) the website or the service.
These Terms, the rights and remedies provided hereunder, and any and all claims and disputes related hereto and/or to the services, shall be governed by, construed under and enforced in all respects solely and exclusively in accordance with the internal substantive laws of State of Illinois, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. Any and all such claims and disputes shall be brought in, and you hereby consent to them being decided exclusively by a court of competent jurisdiction located in Chicago, Illinois. The application of the United Nations Convention of Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly excluded.
