The applicability of any purchase or other conditions from Client is hereby explicitly rejected.

If one or more of the provisions in these Terms & Conditions is at any time declared null or void, in part or in full, by a court, this does not affect the remaining provisions.

Article 3. Offers and Quotations

Any offer and quotation by Contractor are non-binding, unless the offer or quotation contains a period for acceptance.

All prices are in Euro, excluding VAT and any other costs, such as travel and accommodation costs, and other expenses made for the execution of the Agreement including, but not limited to, expense statements from contracted third parties. The aforementioned costs will be charged to Client.

Contractor is not bound by the offer or quotation if Client could reasonably understand that (a part of) the offer or quotation contains an apparent error or spelling mistake.

A composite offer or quotation does not bind the Contractor to perform a part of the offer or quotation for a corresponding part of the indicated price.

Article 4. Execution of the Agreement

Client guarantees that he/she has provided Contractor timely and truthfully with all information that is essential for the execution of the Agreement. This regards information of which Contractor indicates that it is essential or information of which Client could reasonably understand that it is necessary for the execution of the Agreement.

Client can terminate the Agreement prematurely, subject to a notice period of 1 month.

In the event of cancellation, the Client will have to pay the full amount, less any savings for Jeffrey van Maurik resulting from the cancellation. Jeffrey van Maurik will then Deliver the work already completed. If the price depends on the actual costs to be incurred by Jeffrey van Maurik, the price payable by the Client will be calculated on the basis of the costs incurred, the labor performed and the profit Jeffrey van Maurik would have made over the entire work.

Direct damage only includes: the reasonable costs incurred to establish the cause and extent of the damage, any reasonable costs incurred to have Jeffrey van Maurik’s defective performance comply with the Agreement, and reasonable costs incurred to prevent or limit the damage, insofar as the Client proves that those costs have resulted in the limitation of direct damage.

Jeffrey van Maurik’s liability towards the Client for indirect damage or consequential damage or damage due to loss of turnover or profit, damage due to delay, damage due to loss of data, damage due to exceeding deadlines as a result of changed circumstances, damage due to the provision of inadequate cooperation, information or materials by the Client and damage due to information or advice given by Jeffrey van Maurik, the contents of which do not explicitly form part of the Agreement, is excluded.

The condition for any right to compensation shall always be that the Client reports the damage to Jeffrey van Maurik in writing within a reasonable term, but in any case within one (1) month after the damage arose.

The liability of Jeffrey van Maurik with respect to attributable failure to perform the Agreement will only arise if the Client gives Jeffrey van Maurik immediate and proper notice of default in writing, specifying a reasonable term to remedy the failure, and Jeffrey van Maurik continues to fail attributably in the performance of its obligations even after that term.

The agreed monthly recurring hours cannot be hoarded. If the Contractor cannot make the hours or perform the agreed work, they will expire at the beginning of the new calendar month.
