bar, etc. where available." Before signing the contract, I went to examine the office site and confirm personally that the cyber cafe with wireless was indeed available (over specified hours which the on-site office manager spelled out for me). During this visit and contract negotiations, I was in frequent contact with the Davinci representative, Christie Julian, who was well aware that the use of the cyber cafe was a key factor in my company's choice of Davinci over other options. After signing the agreement and paying several hundred dollars, I was told that the cyber cafe was not included (express language in the contract notwithstanding), and that if I wanted this feature I would have to pay almost 3x what the contract current provides. The justification given by the customer representative, "Stephanie" (Ms. Julian notably refusing to answer any calls or e-mails for clarification once my access to the cybe cafe was denied) was that the contract was subject to online (but not printed) "Terms", and these "Terms" state that Davinci could change anything about the contract at any time. [Really? Change anything at any time? Could they now charge me 3x of what they had agreed? $1 million more than they had agreed? Bind my company for 20 years? Change the contract every five minutes? Change anything at any time? ] I have been a professional for over twenty years; I've been a guest lecturer at the Wharton Business School. I honestly cannot recall a more egregious bait and switch, and a more callous disregard for the norms of acceptable business conduct. Beware.
