The prices of the services indicated in the documents or media where APS informs and promotes its professional services (for example, but not limited to: catalog of services, service brochures, services promoted on the Adistec website, commercial offers and any other official communication of the services of Adistec) are indicative and may be changed without prior notice. These prices refer to the activities or scope indicated for the service that the customer wishes to contract. If the customer requests changes to the scope of services, they may be subject to an increase in billable charges to the customer, as available to APS.
The deadlines indicated are based on the objectives of the service offered, being an estimate of the time necessary to fulfill the activities necessary to carry out the service offered. This term can vary for multiple reasons, like the conditions of advance of the consultancy, the schedule of activities defined in the beginning of the execution, among others. Therefore, APS does not guarantee that the service is performed within the stated period and should not be taken as a formal commitment, but as an estimate.
The effort in hours / man considers continuous periods for the execution of the service. If the allocation of periods are separated into several events, the service value and the time required may vary.
The services will be delivered according to the modality acquired by the customer within these options:
On-Site: Our services will be executed in person at the client's premises or organized according to the geographic coverage;

In the event of any of these eventualities, APS undertakes to inform the customer of the arrears and, if possible, the new start date.
The client may request in this situation a change in the calendar to coordinate the starting date of the scheduled activities. This situation does not generate any kind of right for the customer as a compensation or any other type.
