The 542 Fair Use Policy.

Excellent client service is paramount at 542 Partners. Which is why we aim to provide you with the highest level of support across our range of services. 542 Partners bill on a flat fee, subscription based service, which means we’re not clock-watchers and we don’t bill by the hour. We value open communication and welcome your phone calls and meetings. That said, while we love to have-a-chat, there is an expectation for clients to understand when dealing with us.

• Our Fair Use Policy is intended to ensure that our services are not used in an unreasonable manner.
• We reserve the right to vary the terms of this Fair Use Policy from time to time.
• We may rely on the Fair Use Policy where your usage of our services is unreasonable, as defined below.
