This relationship is based on the agreement that both parties are being discussed. The agreement can vary from profit, non-profit and corporation.
An agreement means accepting people who share the same opinion, ideas and thoughts as you. To approve or to accept something as a valid fact. A formal written agreement between two or more parties.
