These general terms and conditions are accepted and are applicable when placing or confirming an order or signing a quotation or agreement.
Any amendment to the general terms and conditions must be in writing and signed by the contracting parties.
The intellectual rights to the delivered works and services remain the property of MEC and shall in no way become the property of the customer, unless different agreement, written and signed by the contracting parties.
Any infringement of these intellectual rights may result in civil and criminal prosecution.
The services are provided as described in the quotation or order form.
The services will be provided within the period stated on the offer or order form, taking into account the usual tolerance inherent in the nature of the services to be provided.
Our invoices are payable in cash within eight days of receipt of the invoice, unless another payment period has been expressly agreed. In the event of non-payment of the invoice on the due date stated on the invoice, interest of 12% per annum shall be claimed without prior notice of default.
In addition, without notice of default, the outstanding invoice amount will be increased by 10%, with a minimum of 40 EUR by way of compensation for extrajudicial collection costs and contractual damage, without prejudice to other relevant collection costs.
If the customer terminates or cancels the contract or if the contract cannot be carried out due to his fault, he shall owe compensation amounting to 20% of the total amount of the order if this cancellation takes place at least 30 days before the start date in the quotation. In case of cancellation less than 30 days before the start date, 50% of the total amount will be charged, starting less than 1 week before the start of the start 75%.
Failure to comply with the payment terms indicated in this contract authorizes MEC to cancel this contract, the cancellation fees mentioned in this document being charged to the customer.
Invalidity or illegality of any of the contractual clauses shall in no way invalidate the other contractual clauses.
The contractual relations between parties to which these general terms and conditions apply are exclusively governed by Belgian law and fall under the jurisdiction of the Belgian Courts.
