can you get guarantor
    I have a situation right now that I just don't know how to answer.  What happens when the director of the company won't sign the personal guarantor spot.  They will sign for the company, but not as personal guarantor?
    Thank you,
    All of the Standard Form Agreements that are for commercial subscribers include place to get a personal guarantee.  Keep in mind that if you want a personal guarantee you need to get two signatures, even if it's from the same person.  The contract is signed on behalf of the entity [corporation or LLC] and then again by a person [or could be another entity] who is guaranteeing the contract.  
    But the personal guarantee is not required for a valid and binding contract.  A personal guarantee comes in handy if the subscriber - entity goes out of business.  Often the person who has guaranteed the contract will have the ability and desire to pay the contract, especially after to sue the person under the guarantee.  So try and get the guarantee, but don't give up the deal if you can't get one unless you are going to be making a significant investment in the subscriber's system and installation and the subscriber's economic condition is questionable.  The person guarantee minimizes your risk, but of course, doesn't insure payment.  Guarantors go broke too.

    Wow, nice list.  I hope your subscriber is the Pentagon and it wants every door and window protected.  The list includes a bunch of items that you and every other business should think about and have a plan to implement and deal with.  These are issues that are best addressed in a company handbook, though I confess our Standard Form Handbook doesn't address each of these items.  [it will if you order it and want these items included - though you will have to provide the information, procedures and plans].  
    This one is a first, though I wonder how many "subscriber contract forms" require all or some of these items somewhere in the fine print.
