4.1 Fuzzy Orange warrants completing the Work in accordance with its Standard Terms and Conditions to the specifications previously agreed with the Client.

Such materials may include, but are not limited to, photographs, written-copy, logos and other printed materials. Where the Client's failure to supply such materials leads to a delay in completion of the work, Fuzzy Orange has the right to extend previously agreed deadlines for the completion of the Work by a reasonable amount. Where the Client's failure to supply materials prevents progress on the Work for more than 21 days, Fuzzy Orange has the right to invoice the Client for any part or parts of the Work already completed.
4.3 On completion of the Work, the Client will be notified and have the opportunity to review it. The Client should notify Fuzzy Orange, in writing, of any unsatisfactory points within 7 days of receipt of such notification. Any of the Work which has not been reported in writing to Fuzzy Orange as unsatisfactory within the 7 day review period will be deemed to have been approved. Once approved, or deemed approved, work cannot subsequently be rejected, and the contract will be deemed to have been completed and all remaining payment under Clause 2.1 Fee Payable will become due. The Contract will remain in effect until all obligations have been completed in terms of this Clause.
4.4 If the Client rejects the Work within the 7 day review period, or will not approve subsequent Work performed by Fuzzy Orange to remedy any points reported by the Client as unsatisfactory, and Fuzzy Orange considers that the Client is unreasonable in his repeated rejection of the Work, the contract will be deemed to have expired and Fuzzy Orange can take any legal measures to recover both payment for the completed Work and reasonable expenses incurred in recovering payment.
