It includes common terms that should to be considered and may be agreed on. However, it will need to be changed according to the specific terms which the parties negotiate: ever y agreement is different and you should seek your own independent legal advice as the APDG cannot provide legal advice and disclaims any and all liability in relation to the use of this Standard Agreement.
