PREVIOUS NOTE – Offers, orders, contracts and other commercial or technical documents that form the basis of a mutual commitment between Moxy BV and the customer may under no circumstances be shared with third parties without the express consent of Moxy BV. The customer implicitly agrees with Moxy BV’s interpretation of each of the elements and concepts cited in the offers, orders, contracts and other commercial or technical documents submitted by Moxy BV to the customer for the purpose of entering into or perpetuating a mutual commitment.
ART. 1. TERMS AND CONDITIONS – GENERAL – These general terms and conditions together with our special terms and conditions constitute the agreement between the parties. The client expressly acknowledges to have been informed of these general terms and conditions pre-contractually and to have accepted them. Subject to written agreement, the following terms and conditions of sale shall apply to all our commercial transactions, otherwise clear-cut terms and conditions of sale of the purchaser shall not be accepted unless agreed in writing.
ART. 2. OFFER – PRICES, PROPOSALS, ORDERS AND IMPLEMENTATION – All our offers, including by means of price lists and brochures, or other means, only become binding after they have been confirmed by us in writing or by e-mail. Afterwards they are valid for a period of 1 month. All prices are exclusive of VAT (and other possible taxes) unless stated otherwise. An agreement is not binding on us until the date of dispatch of our written order confirmation. This provision covers both price and the estimated date of delivery. Even if a formal agreement or order confirmation exists, Moxy BV can at all times formulate a new price proposal or a new delivery date in case Moxy BV does not consider the original proposal to be in accordance with the intended commercial reality. Where applicable, the customer has the right to cancel the order at the new price and/or the new delivery date within 48 hours of Moxy BV’s notification of the change, in which case the costs already incurred shall be passed on by Moxy BV to the customer. Under no circumstances can such a change give rise to compensation, indemnification or dissolution of the agreement.
Moxy BV shall execute the agreement to the best of its knowledge and ability and in accordance with the requirements of good craftsmanship.
ART. 3. BUDGET – Moxy BV endeavours to comply with the budget indication as communicated by the customer, insofar as this is also realistic. If the budget indication is not realistic, Moxy BV shall inform the customer as soon as possible. The production budget and all cost items included in it are truthful and in accordance with the market with regard to all parties. The customer clearly informs Moxy BV in advance if costs for internal guidance by the customer should be included in the production budget. These costs are stated transparently in the production budget. The customer respects the budget as drawn up by Moxy BV and transferred to the customer. If this production budget does not meet the customer’s expectations, the customer must inform Moxy BV in writing as soon as possible, together with the arguments as to why (and, if necessary, how) the production budget should be adjusted.
ART. 4. Order – The customer always confirms in writing to Moxy BV that it has been selected for the production of a project (by means of an order form or e-mail).
ART. 5. SUSPENSION / ANNULATION – It is recommended that the customer, if after a fully completed pitch, does not finally agree with the advertiser to obtain compensation for the costs incurred by Moxy BV.
We reserve the right, in the event of late payment or any other default or breach of good faith on the part of the customer, to suspend or cancel the execution of all current orders, at the customer’s expense and expense. The customer shall owe Moxy BV compensation of at least 1 working day’s fee for the agreed work and the costs incurred, reservation costs or other. In the event of cancellation, the client shall automatically owe an additional fixed compensation of 25% of the value of the cancelled amount, without prejudice to our right to claim additional compensation if the damage actually suffered exceeds the fixed estimated damage. At the same time, all claims, even those not yet due, can then be collected immediately. If an order is cancelled less than 48 hours before it is due to start, the customer shall owe Moxy BV an additional compensation of at least 1 full day’s intake fee for the agreed work.
CANCELLATION BY ACCEPTING: If a project is cancelled after it has already been awarded to Moxy BV, Moxy BV will draw up a cancellation budget based on the original agreed budget. The cancellation budget contains a transparent overview of the costs already incurred by Moxy BV for that project, cancellation fees and part of the missed mark-up.
ART. 6. CANCELLATION COST EXTERNAL GRADING – If a project is cancelled 48 hours before the start of the project, a cancellation fee of 250€ excl. VAT will be charged and if a full day has been booked, 450€ excl. VAT will be charged. Grading is always charged per half day or full day. Invoices will therefore always be drawn up with half-day price or full-day price. An hourly rate can only be accepted if explicitly agreed otherwise. Movements of the grader to another location will always be mentioned separately on the offer/invoice.
ART. 7. PAYMENT TERMS AND CONDITIONS – All invoices are only payable by bank transfer or deposit to the account number of Moxy BV stating the reference number or otherwise the invoice number. Any order formally confirmed or contracted by the customer is irrevocable, regardless of whether or not an advance payment has been made.

ART. 9. COMPLAINTS – PAYMENT – Our invoices are payable within a period of either 15 days for graphic work and 30 days after receipt for video work, unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing. All complaints in connection with delivery and invoicing must be made by registered letter within five days. Reaction to a late complaint does not imply renunciation of this article. If the buyer or the client does not respond within five days after receipt of the goods or services, he shall be deemed to have unconditionally and definitively accepted the goods delivered by Moxy BV. However, complaints do not release the purchaser from his payment obligations.
ART. 10. LATE PAYMENT – In the event of late payment, a conventional interest on arrears shall be due by operation of law and without prior notice of default, calculated at the interest rate equal to the base rate of the European Central Bank, increased by 8% per annum, from the due date until the date of full payment of the invoice, and on the other hand a fixed compensation conventionally set at 10% of the amount paid late, with a minimum of 100 euro/open invoice. The customer also loses the benefit of the discounts granted on the ordinary rate. In the event of total or partial non-payment of the invoice on the due date without serious reason, without any notice of default being required and without prejudice to any legal costs, the balance shall be increased by a flat-rate compensation clause of 14% of the total amount or balance of the invoice claimed, with a minimum of 100 euros and a maximum of 2,500 euros, even if periods of grace are granted. The customer also loses the benefit of the discounts granted on the ordinary rate.
Every payment will be charged by Moxy BV first to offset interest, damages and/or costs before being deducted from the invoice balances. Payments are first deducted from the oldest outstanding invoice. The non-payment on the due date of a single invoice, the protest of a bill of exchange (even if it has not been accepted), every request for concordat judicial reorganisation (WCO) and/or dissolution and in liquidation, amicably or judicially, every request for a postponement of payment, not even official, or any other fact that shows the customer’s inability to pay, makes the outstanding balance of all other invoices, even those that have not expired, immediately payable by operation of law and without notice of default. Moreover, in these cases Moxy BV reserves the right, without notice of default and without prejudice to its right to compensation, to suspend all further work for the customer concerned. Moxy BV reserves the right, in the event of late payment, breach of contract or any other obligation not fulfilled by the customer, at the discretion of Moxy BV, to discontinue the services in question. Moxy BV can never be held liable for damages, in whatever form, compensation for loss of data, compensation for indirect damage and/or consequential damage or compensation for damage due to loss of turnover and/or profit. If the services are switched off / deactivated, Moxy BV shall inform the customer at least 3 working days in advance, in writing or by e-mail. The payment of the invoices may never be subject to whether or not the customer accepts the result of the order or parts of it qualitatively or quantitatively. If the invoice is drawn up in the name of a third party at the request of the client, the client and the third party are jointly and severally liable for the execution of the payment and other obligations arising from the general and special terms and conditions of sale.
ART. 11. PROPERTY RIGHTS – The goods delivered by Moxy BV shall remain our property as long as they have not been paid for in full by the purchaser (both the principal sum and accessories).
