The client has the right at any time to stop commission work by paying L6S for the work already done and ongoing work until this can be settled according to the contract and without loss of L6S.
L6S may then continue to do similar work for other clients.
The client shall appoint a contact person who has full power to convey instructions and receive information and interpret and define client's policies and decisions regarding the project.

The client evaluates all documents and information that has been presented from L6S within a reasonable time frame with regard to progress and deadlines.
The results of the work belong to the client. L6S shall observe confidentiality on third parties with regard to matters of a confidential nature, which has come to L6S's knowledge in connection with the commission work.

In case of a complaint the client must without delay inform L6S of the errors occurred. L6S may – if the fault is covered by these guidelines – choose to fix the defect or pay a third party to do so.
Remuneration of commission work is done by fixed fee, or by kind of work and time used by L6S. L6s's hourly rates will appear on the invlice. Fees will be paid according to invoice.
L6S's fixed rates are competitive compared to rates for management consultants and GTS Institutes.
If the client and L6S agree, the commission work is carried out as a firm offer. This is calculated from current hourly rates and anticipated expenses plus an amount (usually 10%) for contingencies. L6S then accepts to perform the specified work within a specified timeframe.
If the client wants the scope of work changed during the execution, the work order will be taken up for discussion and possibly changed, in compliance with a new agreement of the scope of work.
The client reimburses expenses, if they are not covered by the remuneration.
The following are examples of such possible outlay:

assignments are usually billed when work is completed.
