(b)          the Service Provider has provided the Client with a communication proposing to provide services (including through an invoice, email communication or proposal document) (a Proposal) and the Client has indicated its assent to such Proposal by paying a deposit set out in the Proposal, accepting all or part of a service and/or deliverable set out in such Proposal, or otherwise communicating its acceptance of the Proposal.
