Additionally, SOMEKIND also ensures that the code created as part of a project is written to a professional standard and incorporates sufficient commentary to enable a competent third- party developer to understand, adapt and maintain the code.
Throughout the development period, SOMEKIND will keep the client reasonably informed of the progress of the development services and shall inform the client of any substantial obstacles or likely delays in the performance of development services.
Once the development is completed, the acceptance period of eight (8) days starts. In this period, the client can provide feedback on the development services and ask for changes within the outlined scope of the project. This feedback must be provided clearly in writing and will only be addressed should it be deemed to be in scope.

Should the client decide thereafter to continue the project, a new quotation will be provided.
In the event of force majeure, the supplier bears no responsibility and may partially or completely cancel the order without financial consequences.
