The latter expressly acknowledges having read these terms and conditions and accepting them in their entirety and without reservation. Deviation from our general terms and conditions is only possible in writing.

1. All offers are without obligation. All prices given are always based on the location, time, duration, number of persons, extras, etc. as they apply on the day of the quotation.

7. The services shall be provided within the period stated in the agreement. The agreement shall regulate its duration and the modalities of its termination.

13. If an invoice is not paid on time, the performance of the contract may be suspended without the customer being able to request any service until all outstanding invoices are paid.
