Nothing contained in this Contract shall create an employer and employee relationship, a master and servant relationship, or a principal and agent relationship between Freelancer and Client. Client and Freelancer agree that Freelancer is, and at all times during this Contract shall remain, an independent contractor.

In the event of such delay, the date of delivery or time for completion will be extended by a period of time reasonably necessary by both Freelancer and Client. If the delay remains in effect for a period in excess of thirty days, Client may terminate this Contract immediately upon written notice to Freelancer.
