Consider the following questions and scenarios related to actions or options in a start-up: The company retains the creative rights to all materials, data and similar objects produced by the Company as part of this agreement. All services and software used by the Company are at all times the exclusive property of the Company and under no circumstances does the Customer have any interest or right to ownership of these materials or software.

The customer can revoke this contract by cancelling a written notification to the company before midnight on the third business day. Notifications of termination sent after the expiry of this period may be considered invalid at the sole discretion of the entity.
