General Terms and Conditions


In these General Terms & Conditions the following terms have the meanings referred to: Aw: Copyright Act [Auteurswet] 1912

4. Invoice and payment

4.1 Payment will be made within 14 days of the date of the invoice.

5. Complaints

Complaints regarding the Photographic Work supplied must be reported to the Photographer in writing/by e-mail as soon as possible, within a maximum of ten working days of its delivery.

6.1 The photographer is entitled to carry out work which is not explicitly described in a commission contract at its own technical and creative discretion.

6.3 In the event of cancellation of a commission contract by the Other Party, at any point in time and for whatever reason, the Photographer will be entitled to the agreed payment. In the event of cancellation, a non-professional client will only owe a reasonably determined part of the payment, bearing in mind the work already performed.
