2. The actual implementation of the Agreement must commence at the latest 12 months after the conclusion of the Agreement.

3. The content of the Agreement is deemed to be laid down completely and as the sole document in the written order confirmation.

3. If so required, the Contractor prepares a budget with regard to a Contract in which the proposed method is briefly outlined and a price is estimated.
4. If certain costs or cost items cannot be foreseen upon the preparation of the budget, for instance because they depend on the progress of the project or a quotation of third parties or can otherwise not be predicted with certainty, then they can be included as a memorandum item. The passing on of the same then takes place on the basis of subsequent costs.
5. The budget can be changed by the Contractor if and to the extent that it is based on circumstances or facts that changed afterwards.
6. The Client shall sign the budget of the Contractor for approval and return it to the Contractor within five working days after despatch. Budgets that were not returned in a timely fashion shall be deemed to be approved.

Article 5: Tariffs and prices
1. Periodically the Contractor communicates tariffs for the broadcasting of commercials and non-spot products.

This applies to any and all indicated potential products and services that can be defined within the whole of the relevant campaign.
2. The tariff calculated according to paragraph 1 of this article per spot or broadcast or campaign component can be increased by the Contractor with surcharges.
3. Any and all tariffs specified by the Contractor are exclusive of turnover tax, which shall be at the expense of the Client. The tariffs are inclusive of a potential agency commission, unless expressly indicated otherwise.

Article 6: Termination
1a. If the Agreement with regard to participation in a television programme is terminated by the Client then the Contractor is entitled to compensation on account of the consequently occurring loss of occupancy. The amount of the compensation for the termination of the participation in a television programme is fixed at 100% of the amount stipulated for the Contract.

2. If the Agreement is terminated early by the Client then the Client is held to pay compensation for the costs incurred by third parties if the Contractor has already hired one or more third parties in the context of the Agreement for the benefit of the activities to be performed.
3. If the Agreement is terminated early by the Contractor then the Contractor shall, in consultation with the Client, provide for the transfer of the activities yet to be performed to third parties, unless there is question of an imputable failure to comply by the Client. If the said transfer brings about additional costs on the part of the Contractor then the Client is held to reimburse the said costs.
Article 7: Suspension
1. The Contractor is entitled to suspend and/or discontinue the further implementation of the Agreement if the Client does, in any way whatsoever, not comply with its payment obligation(s) and/or remains in default in terms of providing a potentially required bank guarantee.

Article 8: Rescission
1. If there is question of an imputable failure of the Client to comply with its obligations on account of the Agreement then the Contractor shall give the Client written notice of default and impose a reasonable period within which the Client can yet comply with its obligations. If the Client also imputably fails to comply within this period then the Contractor is entitled to rescind the Agreement, either in whole or in part, unless the failure to comply does, having regard to its special nature or minor importance, not justify the said rescission with its consequences, all without prejudice to the statutory right of the Contractor to claim compensation for the incurred damages.
2. A failure to comply cannot be blamed on a party if the failure to comply is a consequence of a circumstance that cannot be attributed to its negligence and should neither be at its expense by law, a legal act or generally accepted practice.
3. Each party can rescind the Agreement with immediate effect, either in whole or in part, in writing (by registered post with confirmation of receipt), without a notice of default being required, if the Client is granted – whether or not provisional – suspension of payment, if a winding-up petition is filed in respect
of the Client or if the business of the Client is liquidated or discontinued other than for the benefit of restructuring or a merger of undertakings. The Contractor shall never be held to repay already received amounts or compensation for damages on account of rescission in pursuance of this paragraph.
4. If the Client, at the time of the rescission as intended in paragraph 1, has already received Objects and/or performances otherwise for the implementation of the Agreement then the said Objects and/or performances and the thereto-pertaining payment obligations shall not be subject of undoing, unless the Client evidences that the Contractor is in default in respect of the said Objects and/or performances. Amounts that the Contractor invoiced prior to the rescission in connection with what the Contractor has already properly performed or delivered remain, in consideration of the provisions set forth in the previous sentence, payable in full and immediately fall due at the moment of the rescission.
Article 9: Payment term
1. Unless stipulated otherwise, the Client must pay the price and the other amounts payable pursuant to the Agreement within 14 working days after the date of the invoice, without being able to rely on any discount, settlement or suspension. In case of late payment the Client shall be in default without a notice of default by the Contractor being required.
2. The Client is always, and irrespective of the stipulated payment terms, held to on demand of the Contractor provide security for the payment of the amounts payable pursuant to the Agreement to the Contractor. The provided security shall need to be such that the claim with the potential interest and costs is covered properly and that the Contractor shall be able to recover from the same without difficulty. A security that later potentially becomes insufficient shall, on demand of the Contractor, need to be supplemented to sufficient security.
3. If the Client does not pay in a timely fashion (timely payment as intended in paragraph 1 of this article) then the Client shall, due to the delay in the payment of the amount payable by the same, be liable to pay the statutory commercial interest on the said amount from the date of the invoice.
4. In case of late payment (timely payment as intended in paragraph 1 of this article), the Client shall, apart from the payable amount and the statutory commercial interest accrued on the same, be liable to pay compensation for both the extrajudicial and the judicial collection costs, including the fees of lawyers, bailiffs and collection agencies, in full. The extrajudicial costs are set at a minimum of 15% of the principal sum plus interest, the latter with a minimum of € 100.00.
Article 10: Mode of delivery; reservation of title
1. Unless stipulated otherwise, the delivery takes place where the Contractor carries on its business.
2. The Contractor is not held to deliver the manufactured goods in instalments.
3. The Client is held to lend its complete cooperation in the delivery of the goods to be delivered by the Contractor pursuant to the Agreement. The Client shall, also without having been summoned, be in default if the Client does, on demand of the Contractor, not pick up the goods or, if delivery at its address was stipulated, fails to take delivery of the delivered goods.
4. Each and every delivery of goods by the Contractor to the Client takes place subject to reservation of title until the Client has paid everything that the Client is held to pay on account of the Agreement, including interest and costs.
5. If transport of the goods to be delivered was stipulated then this shall take place at the expense of the Client, unless delivery carriage paid was stipulated. The Client always bears the risk during the transport. Transport is also understood as transmission of data through the telephony grid and each and every comparable transmission with the help of a technical means. The acceptance of goods of the Contractor by the carrier qualifies as evidence that they are externally in a good condition, unless the consignment note or the confirmation of receipt indicates otherwise.
6. The Contactor is not encumbered with the storage of the goods to be delivered, unless this was expressly stipulated. If storage takes place then this shall take place at the risk and expense of the Client.
Article 11: Delivery period
1. A delivery period specified by the Contractor is only of an indicative nature, unless expressly indicated in writing that it regards a fatal deadline. The Contractor is, also in case of a stipulated fatal deadline, only in default after the Client has given the Contractor notice of default.
2. The Contractor shall not be bound by a stipulated fatal deadline if the Agreement is changed in accordance with article 3, unless stipulated otherwise in writing or if the minor importance of the change or the minor delay does reasonably not necessitate the Contractor to change the deployment of production capacity initially systematically determined in terms of time.
3. During the implementation of the Agreement by the Contractor the Client is held to do everything that is reasonably required or appropriate to enable a timely delivery by the Contractor, including forthwith answering questions of the Contractor and supplying information at the request of the same.
4. In case of non-compliance by the Client with the provisions set forth in the previous paragraph of this article and the provisions set forth in paragraph 2 of article 9, a stipulated fatal deadline for delivery shall no longer be binding and the Client shall be in default without any written notice of default by the Contractor being required. As the occasion arises, the Contractor shall, without prejudice to the rights vested in the same by law, be authorised to suspend compliance with the Agreement until the Client has remedied the said default. After that the Contractor shall yet implement the Agreement within a reasonable period.
Article 12: Inspection upon delivery
1. The Client is held to forthwith after delivery inspect whether the Contractor complied properly with the Agreement and is moreover held to forthwith inform the Contractor in writing as soon as the Client becomes aware of the contrary. The Client must carry out the said inspection and provide the relevant notification at the latest 14 days after the delivery.
2. The Contractor is always entitled to replace a previously improper performance by a new proper performance, unless the default cannot be remedied.
3. The compliance with the Agreement is deemed to be proper between the parties if the Client failed to perform the inspection or to provide the notification as intended in paragraph 1 of this article in a timely fashion.
4. If the period of 14 days as intended in paragraph 1 of this article should, according to the principles of reasonableness and fairness, also be qualified as unacceptably short for a diligent and alert Client then the said period shall be extended up to at the latest the first moment when the inspection respectively the notification of the Contractor is reasonably possible for the client.
5. The performance of the Contractor is, in any case, deemed to be proper between the parties if the delivered goods, or a part of the delivered goods, are put into use, were processed or treated, were delivered to third parties respectively were used, processed or treated or were delivered to third parties by third parties.
Article 13: Intellectual property
1.

Notwithstanding the provisions set forth in the previous paragraph of this article and barring provisions stipulated to the contrary (in writing), the copyrights with regard to an Object that the Client or a third party, without there being question of a written transfer of copyrights, discloses or has disclosed as its own, as intended in Section 8 of the Dutch Copyrights Act 1912, are in particular vested in the Contractor.
3. Unless stipulated otherwise (in writing), the performance of a probe into the existence of intellectual property rights, including but not limited to patent rights, drawing rights, model rights, trademark rights, database rights and copyrights or portrait rights of third parties, is not part of the Agreement. The same applies to a potential probe into the possibility of these types of protection for the benefit of the Client.

2. The Client shall only be entitled to use of the Object when payment in full of everything that the Client is held to pay to the Contractor shall have taken place.

3. Without prior written consent of the Contractor the Client is not entitled to change (have changed) the Work and/or otherwise the work and/or to implement (have implemented) changes in the Object and/or otherwise the work. If the Client requires a change of the Object and/or otherwise the work as intended in this paragraph then the Client shall give the Contractor the opportunity to implement (have implemented) this kind of change on the basis of conditions to be established further. This does not affect the necessary prior written consent of the Contractor.
4. Without prior written consent of the Contractor the Client is not entitled to use (have used) the Object and/or otherwise the work in a manner broader or other than stipulated.

To this end it shall only require consent of the Client if the latter did not proceed with use of the design yet, which consent shall not be refused unreasonably.
Article 16: Release of material
1. Any and all materials and any and all digital information and data files that are related to the Agreement and that must be made available to the Contractor in the context of the same shall, on demand of the Client, be returned to the Client, however only after the Client shall have complied with all its obligations vis-à-vis the Contractor. The same applies to the Client in connection with materials of the Contractor, of any nature whatsoever, (including digital information and data files, work drawings, artwork, etc.), to the extent not stipulated otherwise.
Article 17: Ownership of the Client, right of pledge
