Agreed deposits must be paid on time. As long as the Client has not paid the agreed down payment, WAVE7 may suspend its activities or the execution of the Agreement until it has received the deposit. This may affect the specified deadlines.

Use by third parties is only permitted with the prior written consent of WAVE7. Any other use, including (in whole or in part) reuse in another work, adaptations or modifications to the Work, or publication or use for another purpose or by third parties, must be the subject of an additional written Agreement, for which payment may be requested.

Any use of the Work that has not been agreed and does not fall under the described right of use is an infringement of the copyright of WAVE7 for which the Client is liable for damages.

Mention of WAVE7's name for Works supplied by it is mandatory upon publication and/or reproduction, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

In the event of copyright infringement, the Client owes a non-flat-rate fine of at least Nafl. 1,000, -, without prejudice to WAVE7's right to recover its full damage from the Client, as well as to recover all costs that WAVE7 must incur for legal assistance to recover the damage.

WAVE7 reserves the right to (re)use the knowledge gained by the performance of its activities for other (commercial) purposes, insofar as no confidential information of the Client is disclosed.

7. Termination 

As soon as the Agreement has been concluded, it can no longer be cancelled free of charge by the Client. At the choice of WAVE7, the Client must then:

If there is an Agreement on an hourly basis: to reimburse all hours and costs incurred with a view to the execution of the Agreement (including obligations entered into by WAVE7 to pay Suppliers);

If there is a fixed price: to pay the agreed price.

8. Invoices, payment, costs 

Payment by the Client of the amounts owed to WAVE7 must, without the Client being entitled to any deduction, discount, suspension or settlement, be made within 30 days of the invoice date, unless otherwise agreed in writing. The day of payment is the day of crediting the amount due to the declared bank account of WAVE7.

If the Client has not paid within the period referred to in the first paragraph, the Client is in default by operation of law and WAVE7 is entitled to charge the statutory (commercial) interest from that moment on.

If the Client has not paid within the period referred to in the first paragraph, the Client is obliged to reimburse all judicial and extrajudicial (collection) costs actually incurred by WAVE7. The reimbursement of the costs incurred is not limited to any order for costs determined by the court.

Payments made are first for the payment of interest and costs due and then for the removal of outstanding invoices.

9. Confidentiality, reference 

Both the Client and WAVE7, as well as persons who are employed by them and/or perform work for them, undertake to maintain the confidentiality of all information that they have obtained from each other that has been classified as confidential.

The secrecy does not include information that is already publicly known or information that is brought into legal proceedings.

WAVE7 may use the name of the Client as a reference and make it public as such, for example on social media or its website.

10. Liability WAVE7 

Any liability of WAVE7 is limited to what is stipulated in these general terms and conditions.

WAVE7 is not liable for damage of any kind caused by WAVE7 relying on incorrect and/or incomplete information provided by or on behalf of the Client.

WAVE7 is only liable for direct damage. Direct damage is understood to mean: reasonable costs incurred to ensure that WAVE7's defective performance complies with the Agreement, insofar as it can be attributed to WAVE7, and reasonable costs to determine the cause and extent of the (direct) damage, as well as reasonable costs to prevent or limit the damage, insofar as the Client demonstrates that these costs have led to limitation of the direct damage. WAVE7 is never liable for indirect damage, including: lost profit, missed savings, damage due to business interruption and other consequential damage or indirect damage resulting from non-performance, late or improper performance by WAVE7 or its Suppliers.

Insofar as WAVE7 is liable for the non-execution, not on time or not properly execution of the Agreement, its liability is limited to a maximum of once the assignment sum, up to a maximum of Nafl. 30.000,- By Agreement and with a term of more than 2 months, WAVE7's liability is limited to the invoice amount of the past 2 months, with a maximum of Nafl. 30.000, -.

Any liability of WAVE7 expires after 1 year after termination of the work or the Services or after the damage occurs.

A coherent series of attributable shortcomings counts as one (1) attributable shortcoming.

The restrictions set out in this article do not apply if the damage is due to intent or gross negligence on the part of WAVE7.

11. Indemnification 

The Client indemnifies WAVE7 against any claims from third parties who suffer damage in connection with the execution of the Agreement.

If WAVE7 should be approached by third parties on this basis, the Client is obliged to assist WAVE7 both in and out of court and to immediately do everything that may be expected of him in that case. If the Client fails to take adequate measures, WAVE7 is entitled to do so itself, without notice of default. All costs and damage on the part of WAVE7 and third parties arising as a result of this are entirely at the expense and risk of the Client.

12. Force majeure 

WAVE7 is not obliged to fulfil any obligation and is not liable if there is a circumstance that is not due to fault or is at its expense under the law, legal act or generally accepted views.

If the period of force majeure lasts longer than 2 months, both the Client and WAVE7 are entitled to dissolve the Agreement, without obligation to compensate the other party for the damage suffered. If the aforementioned situation occurs when the Agreement has been partially executed, WAVE7 has the right to invoice the part already fulfilled separately. The Client is then obliged to pay this invoice as if it were a separate transaction.

13. Competent court and applicable law 

The Agreement, and all activities, Services, Quotations, disputes and invoices from or on behalf of WAVE7 are exclusively governed by the law of Curaçao, even if a Client is established or resident abroad. All disputes on which a solution cannot be reached by mutual agreement will be submitted exclusively to the competent court in Curaçao. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (the 'Vienna Sales Convention') does not apply.
