3. Forming a contract with the Supplier


3.1 These terms are incorporated into every contract with the Supplier and any terms proposed by the Client are excluded unless specifically agreed to by a director of the Supplier in writing.

3.2 Any quote by the Supplier is an invitation to the Client to make an offer. If the Client agrees to the quote whether by clicking on a link in the email or sending a separate email, the Client offers to contract with the Supplier. The Supplier accepts the offer and a contract is formed only when the Supplier sends a confirmation email to the Client. Until then, there is no contract between the Supplier and the Client notwithstanding what the Supplier may say or do.

3.3 Each Supplier quote that becomes a contract (as explained above) is a separate contract with the Supplier subject to these terms and conditions even if more than one quote is attached to the same Supplier email and accordingly, by way of example, any material breach of one contract does not entitle the other party to terminate another contract.

3.4 Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Supplier is not obliged to supply any Services requested by the Client which are in addition to those specified on the Quote. If the Supplier does so agree, it is entitled to charge extra for such Services at its then-standard rates.


4. Obligations of the Client


4.1 The Client shall:

4.1.1 promptly provide the Supplier with such information and media files as it may reasonably request for the proper performance of the Services; and

4.2 promptly provide to the Supplier any necessary edits, within the timeframes and according to the guidelines outlined at points 6.5, 6.6 and 7.

4.3 The Client shall comply promptly with its obligations under this agreement. If the Client delays in performing its obligation, then the period for the Supplier to perform its own related obligations shall be extended by a reasonable period which may be longer than the period of Client delay, for example if the Supplier has to arrange for a new Creator to carry out the work.  

4.4 The Client agrees to make backups of Client Source Material supplied to the Supplier. The Supplier is not liable for loss or damage to the Client Source Material.  


5. Shooting and events

5.2 The Client acknowledges that the Supplier is entitled without liability to withdraw from any Venue and suspend any Services immediately if the Supplier has any concerns as to the safety or security of its personnel staff or equipment.

5.3 The Supplier shall take reasonable steps to check that its equipment is in order in advance of the event but cannot guarantee that technical difficulties will not arise or that they can necessarily be resolved quickly or on the same day. The Supplier shall not be liable in such case.

5.7.3 comply with the reasonable requests of the Supplier and the venue operator.

6.4 The Supplier Materials must not be used by the Client until the outstanding payment is made.

6.5 Any claims or edit requests must be made in writing to the Supplier within fourteen days of receipt of the final Supplier Materials.

7.3 The Client agrees that they have been given an opportunity to provide creative input to the Services prior to and/or during the shooting and/or the editing process. Any Client’s dissatisfaction with the final Supplier Materials on creative or artistic grounds does not constitute failure on the part of the Supplier to fulfil its obligations under this contract, nor does it offer the Client grounds on which to refuse to pay the full remuneration to the Supplier.  


8. Payment

8.1 The Supplier’s prices and timescales in the Quote are based on information supplied by the Client. The Supplier reserves the right to change its prices or timescales in light of any additional information received from the Client.

8.4 The Supplier’s fees are exclusive of VAT or other applicable taxes.
