Yes, there is a one page contract that reads that you agree to pay the agreed upon fees and that you have the ability to cancel at anytime.
About Salient Service
Unfortunately, there is no way to block the administrator from the site so SUS would be able to access the recipes. However, the program software can be purchased and the client could have their own internal site along with all the training needed to upkeep it if so desired.
Numerous regulated sites, but mostly straight from the suppliers site for those that offer it.
Maintenance is necessary to keep the server(s) up and running, to manage security patches and updates, and backups created and managed. There are also licensing fees that are ongoing.
You, the client would still have/own all of your recipes, with all the information. They would be exported into a manageable EXCEL format. As far as the data base and its’ functionality, that would remain SUS’ property.
