6. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.

7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.

8. INDEMNITY.

8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.

9. GENERAL.

9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

Timesheets come with numerous benefits concerning time management. For project managers, time is a valuable resource that should be appropriately managed if the objectives are to be met. Thus, there comes the need for a freelancer timesheet. It's not unusual for specific tasks in projects to be handled by independent freelancers.

Timesheets are organized as tables where each freelancer fills in the time spent on individual tasks. Thus, the project tasks are spread out to different freelancers, increasing efficiency.

Numerous benefits of the freelancer timesheet

For successful project management, timesheets are indispensable tools. The benefits of the timesheets don't just apply to the project manager; individual freelancers will appreciate the efficiency offered when the project is divided into bite-sized structures that each can handle easily. With this distribution of tasks, the freelancers are spared from unrealistic deadlines. Since the information is entered in real-time, the team members can respect deadlines and budgets.

1. Better time management with the freelancer timesheet

Timesheets allow you to identify the time an activity will require. Where numerous freelancers are working as a team, this time allocation isn't always easy to determine. As the project manager, you can view the team contribution since each freelancer will enter the time taken to work on a particular task. The freelancer timesheet allows the total hours worked to be computed. With this information, efficiency is increased as you can manage your time better. Since the team members are also able to enter comments about the task, the project manager can identify the reasons why some tasks took longer than expected. This process allows you to know which functions are time and money intensive and the reason why.

2. Workload management with the freelancer timesheet

A timesheet is an excellent tool to manage the workload allocated to individual team members. As the manager, you know which task is assigned to a specific team member, the time allotted for the job and how much time is left before that time lapses. This allows you to distribute tasks equitably across the team. Team members will also appreciate this factor since they will not have to deal with unrealistic deadlines for assignments. If there are team members who are free, the manager can ask them to take up more tasks within the project hence distributing the workload efficiently.

3. More efficient budgeting with the freelancer timesheet

A timesheet allows you to establish the actual cost of the project. By organizing projects into specific tasks with their allocated time, you will know the different costs associated with the project. The freelancer timesheet also enables the project manager to establish the value of internal labor. Timesheets allow the project manager to know exactly how much time was spent on the project's tasks by specific team members. This is a gem for project managers whose team members bill hourly since they are paid precisely for what they worked for. The same applies to individual team members. A team member can charge precisely for hours worked, and the timesheet can verify this. There is no room for estimating how much work a freelancer has put in just by judging the progress of the entire project. This transparency cements the working relationship between the project managers and their team members.

4. Managing delays with the freelancer timesheet

By being able to analyze time management for the project, it is possible to establish which task is approaching its deadline, and its level of accomplishment. This way, you can manage delays by allocating such tasks to team members who are more available and have a track record for efficiency. The extra help allows you, the project manager to deal with delays and mitigate them completely. This aspect cannot be achieved without a freelancer timesheet.

Conclusion

A freelancer timesheet is one of the critical tools for effective project management. By allowing time tracking for individual tasks, you can manage a lot of factors, from time to finances to anticipated delays.
