Performance: In the event Holistic performs Professional Services on behalf of Subscriber, the Professional Services Fees will be listed on an order Schedule, and time of performance, Customizations, deliverable, Developed Code, Training and any other special terms and conditions shall be described on the Statement of Work attached as a Schedule. Unless otherwise specified in a Schedule, the Professional Services shall be performed on a time and materials basis.

Holistic will perform all Professional Services in a professional and workmanlike manner and to industry standards. Professional Services may depend on the completion of certain tasks or schedules within Subscriber´s exclusive control and, therefore, Holistic´s inability to perform, which is based on Subscriber´s failure to complete said tasks or meet time schedules, shall not be deemed a breach of this Agreement by Zoom.

B. Technology Ownership: Unless expressly described in an attached Schedule to the contrary, no Professional Services performed by Holistic resulting in Customizations for Subscriber shall change the ownership rights in either Subscriber Technology or Holistic Technology.
