APPLICABILITY OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The Company’s general terms and conditions of sale, delivery and payment shall apply with the explicit rejection of all other terms and conditions - to all offers and contracts. Special stipulations deviating from our general terms and conditions will only be binding if they have been agreed in writing. A client who has previously done business with us and on this basis was able to take cognizance of these terms and conditions is also assumed to have taken cognizance of them with respect to later offers and transactions
All quotations shall be free of engagement unless explicitly stated otherwise. If a quotation is made without engagement and is accepted by The Client, then The Company will be entitled to withdraw the offer within 8 working days after acceptance is received, unless the advertising or intelligence service(s) have already been activated. Verbal offers from The Company or it’s employees will not be binding unless they have been confirmed by us in writing.
Payments must be made in Euro (€), without the deduction of any discount and, if not otherwise agreed, within 14 days of the date of invoice.

Delayed Payments: a €40 fee plus 8% interest for late payments calculated from the date of invoice will be applied in accordance with directive 2011/7/EU.
CANCELLATION & TERMINATION
Opportunities to cancel the advertising and other services provided by The Company once a contract has been signed by The Client are very limited. Any cancellation request for advertising booked in the upcoming 12 months from the date of the request by The Client can not be accepted. Any advertising booked by The Client with a start date later than 12 months from the date of request can be cancelled in discussion with The Company. Subscriptions to SYT iQ can be cancelled at any given time, however, the cancellation will take effect after the current contract has expired and all invoices have been paid. Any contracts that are automatically renewed per month require a 30 days notice.
If The Client fails to pay for the advertising services in accordance with this order and these terms and conditions, or if The Client enters bankruptcy, becomes insolvent, has a receiver or administrator or liquidator or manager appointed over any of their assets or if The Client resolves to liquidate their company, then The Company may (at their absolute discretion) cancel any current advertising campaigns and terminate any agreements for advertising that is yet to be published and take proceedings against The Client to recover any overdue amount including costs in relation to any action taken against you by us.
