Article 2

Offer

1. All offers requested by a client and sent by the commissionee shall take place with the applicability of the present general terms and conditions. The general terms and conditions shall be applicable to the offer and the acceptance thereof, as well as to the agreement that has thus become effective.

2. All offers shall be based on the legal stipulations regarding taxes and national insurance contributions and tariffs of wages and raw materials such as these are applicable on the day on which the offer is made.

3. The commissionee is entitled to charge increases in tariffs as mentioned in the previous paragraph and arisen after the day the offer was made but before the day of the provision of services or delivery of goods to the client. The increases mentioned next to the agreed price and/or tariffs in the offer or in the agreement shall be additionally charged to the client.

4. All offers shall be performed during one month, unless it has been mentioned otherwise in the offer. At the end of this period, the commissionee shall be free to reject an acceptance of the client.

5. The agreement shall become effective when the commissionee has received the acceptance of the offer. The acceptance of the offer implies that the client subscribes to the applicability of the present general terms and conditions and that he renounces the applicability of his own (purchase) conditions.

6. In the event that reservations or modifications have been made in the acceptance with reference to the offer, the agreement shall be effective when the commissionee has informed the client to agree with these reservations or modifications.

7. In the event that the client has not accepted the offer from the commissionee within 30 days, he shall be obliged to return the draft reporting, designs, samples and models, carriage paid, to the commissionee at his first request. In the event that the client does not return these goods, the commissionee shall be entitled to charge the costs that are related to the offers and the dispatch and manufacture of the goods to the client.

Article 3

1. Agreements in respect of which the commissionee undertakes to carry out periodical activities or activities that are distributed over the duration of the agreement for a period that is longer than two months, shall exclusively be terminable with due observance of a period of notice.

This period of notice amounts to six months in the event that the agreement has been entered into for a period of six to eighteen months and amounts to 12 months in the event that the agreement has been entered into for a period of longer than 18 months.

3. A termination with reference to which the period mentioned in paragraph 1 has not been observed and that has not been effected as referred to in paragraph 2, does not terminate the agreement and does not have any legal effect. The agreement shall therefore be continued for the same period.

4. The prices that have been agreed upon as referred to in this article can be increased prematurely in the event that the prices of wages, raw materials and taxes and/or increases and/or contributions based on legal stipulations increase by more than 5%.

4. Additional and deducted deliveries of goods are permitted in so far as these are usual in the industry and can be additionally charged to the client.

Deviations in other materials and semi-manufactured products used by the commissionee are permitted in accordance with the general sales conditions that are related to these materials and semi-manufactured products.

In the event that a client wishes to apply modifications to the execution of a given project or assignment, the commissionee shall not be obliged to do this and can cancel the assignment (see article cancellation). In the event that the commissionee wishes to execute the modified assignment and does not cancel the assignment, the client is obliged to reimburse the costs that have been incurred by the commissionee, even if these costs would have been made unnecessary for the execution of the assignment in its definitive form. The client shall also be obliged to reimburse the costs that are related with the modifications.

9. The client shall be at all times and irrespective of the agreed payment conditions obliged to provide security or to make a cash payment at the first request from the commissionee to that end. The security or the cash payment shall have to be such that this is equal to the claim increased by interest and costs that have fallen due.

10. As long as the client has not paid the full purchase price with any possible additional costs or as long as he has not provided any security for that, the commissionee shall reserve the ownership of the good. In that event the ownership shall be transferred to the client as soon as the client has fulfilled all his obligations towards the commissionee.

6. In the event that the commissionee has any doubts about the payment capacity of the client, the commissionee shall be authorised to postpone the delivery of the goods until the client has provided security for payment.

7. In the event that the commissionee postpones the dispatch at the request of the client, the goods shall remain to be the property of the commissionee. The risk shall be transferred to the client as from that moment.

8. In the event that it appears that the commissionee has not properly fulfilled the agreement, the client shall have to give him a reasonable term in order to still fulfil the agreement.

In the event that a fixed delivery period has been agreed, the commissionee shall not be immediately in default at the end of this period.

2. The agreed ultimate period of delivery shall be cancelled if the client requires modifications of the specifications of the work or if the necessary goods for the assignment have been delivered too late or improperly or are extra laborious. This shall only be different if the minor meaning of the modifications or the minor delay does not necessitate the commissionee to alter the delivery period that has been initially agreed upon by him.

3. In no event the client, who has altered an assignment or a project, shall have the right to claim any price reduction or damages on account of the fact that this modification has not fully or not in time been realised.
