KBA provides the enableHR package with current legislative changes as at the time the package is provided to the Customer.

Under circumstances where liability cannot be excluded, such liability is limited to the value of the Products purchased from KBA. KBA does not accept liability in any contract, tort or otherwise for any injury, damage, loss (including consequential loss), delay, additional expense or inconvenience caused directly or indirectly by force majeure or any other event which is beyond KBA’s control and is not preventable by reasonable diligence on KBA’s part or your part.

Intellectual Property

Whilst working with Key Business Advisors, you will have access to KBA’s HR intellectual property that has been carefully designed to suit your business requirements. This protected information means that you have access to a process that is highly valued in the market.

Diagnostic reports and documentation provided to you carrying the Key Business Advisors copyright, enableHR copyright and/or HR Coach copyright may be used in the management of your business only. They are not to be distributed, copied or reconstructed for any other purpose, associated companies or external parties.

Term and Fee

This agreement shall be for a minimum term of 12 months and continue unless terminated in accordance with this agreement. Should the agreement be terminated, then the balance of the term (all monies owed) remains due and payable.

(This applies to certain products only).

 

Termination

In the event that the Customer wishes to terminate this agreement, they must provide a minimum of three (3) months’ notice in writing. The balance of the 12-month term, however, will remain due and payable. Should the Customer not provide such notice of termination of the agreement and the 12-month term expires, it will automatically roll over for a further 12 months and the Customer will be bound to the additional term.

(This applies to certain products only).

In the event that the agreement is terminated, KBA has the right to invoice the Customer for the balance of the term remaining, and such monies are due and payable immediately.

 

Adjustment of Pricing

The cost of the enableHR service may increase from time to time. Should such increase be made, KBA will notify the Customer in advance. An increase will also apply should the Customer move from one band to another.

 

HR Consultancy Package

The HR Consultancy Package is based on Consultancy hours charged monthly or annually for a 12 month period.  On the 12 month anniversary, the same amount of hours will be allocated for another 12 months, unless a new set of hours has been negotiated. Any outstanding hours remaining (i.e. hours not used within the 12 month period), will not be rolled over into the new 12 month term.
