1. Applicability; Conclusion of contract

1.1 Cosmic Media e.U. (hereinafter “Agency”) shall provide its services exclusively on the basis of the following General Terms and Conditions (GTC). They shall apply to all legal relationships between the Agency and the Customer, even if they are not expressly referred to. The GTC shall exclusively apply to legal transactions with entrepreneurs, i.e. B2B transactions.

1.2 The version applicable at the time of conclusion of a contract shall be relevant. Deviations from these GTC and other supplementary agreements with the Customer shall only be effective if they have been confirmed by the Agency in writing.

1.3 Terms and conditions of the Customer, if any, shall not be accepted, even if the Agency knows them, unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing on a case-by-case basis. The Agency expressly objects to GTC of the Customer.  No other objection of the Agency to the Customer’s GTC shall be required.

1.4 The Customer shall be informed about amendments to the GTC; they shall be deemed agreed unless the Customer objects to the amended GTC in writing within 14 days; in the information the Customer will be expressly informed about the consequence of silence on his part.

1.5 If any provisions of these General Terms and Conditions are ineffective, the binding nature of the remaining provisions and the contracts concluded on the basis of the same shall not be affected. The ineffective provision shall be replaced by an effective provision which comes as close as possible to the meaning and purpose of the ineffective one.

1.6 The Agency’s offers shall be subject to change without notice and non-binding.


2. Social Media Channels

Before an order is placed the Agency expressly points out to the Customer that providers of “social media channels” (e.g. facebook; hereinafter referred to as Providers), in their terms and conditions of use, reserve the right to reject or remove advertisements or promotional appearances for any reason whatsoever. Accordingly, Providers are not obliged to forward content or information to users. Thus, there is a risk, which cannot be calculated by the Agency, that advertisements or promotional appearances are removed for no reason. Although in the case of a complaint of a different user Providers do offer an opportunity to reply, the content will be immediately removed also in that case. In that case restoring the original, lawful condition may take some time. The Agency works on the basis of the Providers’ terms and conditions of use, on which it has no influence, and also makes them the basis of Customer orders. By placing the order the Customer expressly acknowledges that those terms and conditions of use (co-)determine the rights and duties of a contractual relationship, if any. The Agency intends to execute the Customer’s order to the best of its knowledge and belief and to comply with the policies of “social media channels”. Due to the terms and conditions of use that are currently applicable and the fact that every user can easily allege a violation of the law with the aim that contents will be removed, the Agency cannot guarantee that the ordered campaign can be retrieved at any time.


3. Protection of Concepts and Ideas

If a potential Customer has already invited the Agency beforehand to develop a concept and if the Agency accepts this invitation prior to conclusion of the principal contract, the following shall apply:

3.1 By the invitation and acceptance of the invitation by the Agency the potential Customer and the Agency enter into a contractual relationship (“pitching contract”). That contract will also be based on the GTC.

3.2 The potential Customer acknowledges that already by developing a concept the Agency will render cost-intensive services, even though the Customer himself has not taken on any performance duties yet.

3.3 To the extent that they reach the level of originality required for copyright protection the linguistic and graphic parts of the concept are protected by the Austrian Copyright Act [Urheberrechtsgesetz]. The potential Customer is not permitted to use or edit those parts without the Agency’s consent due to the Austrian Copyright Act alone.

3.4 Furthermore, the concept contains ideas that are relevant to advertising which do not reach the level of originality required for copyright protection and are thus not protected by the Austrian Copyright Act. Such ideas are generated at the beginning of every creative process and may be defined as the creative spark for all subsequent work results and, thus, as the origin of the marketing strategy. Accordingly, those elements of the concept are protected which are unique and characterise the marketing strategy. For the purpose of this agreement ideas shall in particular mean advertising slogans, advertising texts, graphics and illustrations, advertising means etc., even if they do not reach the level of originality required for copyright protection.

3.5 The potential Customer undertakes not to exploit or have exploited commercially and/or use or have used the creative advertising ideas which the Agency presented as part of the concept in any context other than the corrective of a principal contract to be concluded at a later time.

3.6 If the potential Customer is of the opinion that the Agency presented ideas to him which he already had before the presentation, he shall notify the Agency thereof via e-mail within 14 days of the day of the presentation and include means 

of evidence which allow a chronological allocation.

3.7 Otherwise the Parties will assume that the Agency has presented an idea to the potential Customer which is new to him. If the Customer uses the idea, it has to be assumed that the Agency received remuneration therefor.

3.8 The potential Customer may be released from his duties under this Clause if he pays a reasonable compensation plus 20% VAT. Such release shall become effective only after receipt of the full compensation payment by the Agency.


4. Scope of services; Order processing; Customer’s duties to co-operate

4.1 The scope of the services to be rendered shall be based on the specifications of the Agency Agreement or the Agency’s acknowledgment of order, if any, and the briefing report, if any (“Offer Documents”). Subsequent modifications of the services shall be subject to the Agency’s written confirmation. When executing the order the Agency shall be free in its discretion within the framework specified by the Customer.

4.2 All services of the Agency (including but not limited to all preliminary designs, sketches, final drawings, proofs, blueprints, copies, coloured prints and electronic files) shall be checked by the Customer and released within three working days of receipt by the Customer. If they are not released within that period, they shall be deemed approved by the Customer. After that period has expired with no reply from the Customer they shall be deemed accepted by the same.

4.3 The Customer shall make accessible to the Agency completely and in time all information and documents required for rendering the service. The Customer shall notify the Agency of all circumstances that are relevant to execution of the order, even if they become known only in the course of execution of the order. The Customer shall bear the costs incurred due to the fact that work has to be done again by the Agency or is delayed because of his incorrect, incomplete or subsequently modified specifications.

4.4 In addition, the Customer is obliged to clear the documents made available by him for execution of the order (photos, logos, etc.) for potential copyrights, trademark rights, marks or other rights of third parties (rights clearance) and guarantees that the documents are free from rights of third parties and may therefore be used for the desired purpose. In the case of merely slight negligence or if it has fulfilled its duty to warn the Customer, the Agency shall not be liable (at least as regards the relationship between the Agency and the Customer) for an infringement of such rights of third parties by documents made available by the Customer. If the Agency is held liable for an infringement of such rights, the Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Agency and shall compensate the Agency for any and all disadvantages suffered by it due to third-party claims, including costs of reasonable legal representation. The Customer undertakes to support the Agency in defending claims of third parties, if any. For this purpose the Customer shall provide the Agency with all documents without request.

5. External services; Commissioning of third parties

5.1 The Agency shall be entitled at its own discretion to render the services itself, to employ expert third parties as agents [Erfüllungsgehilfen as defined by Section 1313a of the Austrian General Civil Code [ABGB]] and/or to commission a third party to render such services (“External Service”).

5.2 Commissioning of third parties in connection with an External Service shall be done either in the Agency’s own name or in the name of the Customer. The Agency shall select the relevant third party with care and ensure that it is appropriately qualified.

5.3 The Customer shall assume obligations vis-à-vis third parties which survive the contract. This shall expressly apply also in the case of termination of the agency contract for cause.


6. Deadlines

6.1 Unless expressly agreed to be binding, delivery or service periods stated shall only be approximate and non-binding. Binding agreements on deadlines shall be recorded in writing or confirmed by the Agency in writing.

6.2 If the delivery/service of the Agency is delayed for reasons for which the Agency is not responsible, such as, e.g. events of force majeure or other unforeseeable events that cannot be prevented by reasonable means, the service obligations shall be suspended for the duration and to the extent of the impediment and the deadlines shall be extended accordingly. If such delays continue for more than two months, the Customer and the Agency shall be entitled to rescind the contract.

6.3 If the Agency is in default, the Customer may only rescind the contract after having granted the Agency a reasonable grace period of at least 14 days in writing and after such period has expired fruitlessly. Claims of the Customer for damages on the ground of non-performance or default shall be excluded, unless intent or gross negligence can be proved.


7. Early termination

7.1 The Agency shall be entitled to terminate the contract for cause with immediate effect. Causes shall include but not be limited to situations where

(a) provision of a service becomes impossible for reasons for which the Customer is responsible or is further delayed even though the Customer was granted a grace period of 14 days;

(b) the Customer continues to violate material obligations under this contract, such as, e.g. the obligation to pay an amount payment of which has been demanded or duties to co-operate, despite a written warning and having been granted a grace period of 14 days.

(c) legitimate concerns exist regarding the Customer’s credit standing and, upon the Agency’s request, the Customer fails to make advance payments or to furnish suitable security prior to provision of the service by the Agency;

7.2 The Customer shall be entitled to terminate the contract for cause without having to grant a grace period. A cause shall be, in particular, where the Agency repeatedly violates material provisions of this contract despite a written warning and having been granted a grace period of at least 14 days to remedy the breach of the contract.


8. Fees

8.1 Unless otherwise agreed the Agency’s entitlement to fees shall arise for any specific service once the same has been rendered. The Agency shall be entitled to ask for advances to cover its expenses. From a contract volume involving a (an annual) budget of € 3.000 or contracts extending over a prolonged period of time, the Agency shall be entitled to render interim accounts or issue advance invoices or demand payments on account.

8.2 The fees shall be stated as net fees plus statutory value added tax. If in a specific case no agreement on fees has been concluded, the Agency shall be entitled to fees at market rates for the services rendered and for transfer of copyrights and marks.

8.3 All services of the Agency which are not expressly covered by the agreed fees shall be paid for separately. All cash expenses incurred by the Agency shall be reimbursed by the Customer.

8.4 Cost estimates provided by the Agency shall be non-binding. If it becomes clear that the actual costs will exceed the Agency’s written cost estimate by more than 15 per cent, the Agency shall advise the Customer of such higher costs. The increase in costs shall be deemed accepted by the Customer if the Customer does not object to such increase in writing within three working days of the advice and states cheaper alternatives at the same time. Cost increases of up to 15 per cent shall not have to be advised separately. Such a deviation from the cost estimate shall be deemed accepted by the Customer from the beginning.

8.5 If the Customer unilaterally modifies or cancels work ordered without involving the Agency and notwithstanding other regular support from the same, the Customer shall pay the Agency for the services provided by then according to the agreement on fees and shall reimburse all costs incurred. Unless work is cancelled on the ground of a breach of the Agency’s duties by gross negligence or wilful intent, the Customer shall, in addition, pay the Agency the total fee (commission) agreed for that contract, and the allowance [Anrechnungsvergütung] as defined in Section 1168 of the Austrian Civil Code [ABGB] shall be excluded. Furthermore, the Agency shall be indemnified and held harmless from and against any third-party claims, in particular of the Agency’s contractors. By payment of the fees the Customer shall acquire no rights to use work already carried out; concepts, drafts and other documents which were not implemented shall rather be returned to the Agency without delay.


9. Payment, Retention of title

9.1 The fee shall be due for payment immediately upon receipt of the invoice without any deductions, unless special payment terms are agreed in writing on a case-by-case basis. The same shall apply to all cash and other expenses charged. The Agency shall retain title to the goods delivered by it until full payment of the fee including all ancillary liabilities.

9.2 In the case of payment default of the Customer statutory default interest at the rate applicable to business-to-business transactions will be charged. In the case of default the Customer also undertakes to reimburse the Agency the dunning and collection charges incurred to the extent they are necessary for appropriate pursuit of the claim. This shall in any case include the costs of two dunning letters at the market fee of currently at least EUR 20 per letter plus those of one dunning letter of a lawyer who has been instructed to collect the receivables outstanding. Assertion of further rights and claims shall remain unaffected.

9.3 If the Customer is in default of payment, the Agency may call for immediate payment of services or partial services rendered under different contracts concluded with the Customer.

9.4 Furthermore, the Agency is not obliged to render other services until payment of the amount outstanding (right to withhold services). The obligation to pay the fees shall not be affected.

9.5 If payment by instalments has been agreed, the Agency reserves the right to demand immediate payment of the total debt outstanding if instalments or ancillary claims are not paid in time (acceleration clause).

9.6 The Customer shall not be entitled to set off claims of the Agency against his own claims unless the Customer’s claim has been recognised by the Agency in writing or ascertained by court. 


10. Title and copyright

10.1 The Agency shall retain title to all services of the Agency, including services in connection with presentations (e.g., suggestions, ideas, sketches, preliminary designs, scribbles, final drawings, concepts, negatives, slides), including parts thereof, as well as the individual workpieces and original designs and the Agency may demand at any time, in particular in the case of termination of the contractual relationship, that they be returned to it. By paying the fees the Customer shall acquire the right to use the services for the designated purpose agreed. Unless otherwise agreed the Customer shall, however, use the Agency’s services exclusively in Austria. Acquisition of rights to use and exploit the Agency’s services shall in any case be subject to full payment of the fees charged by the Agency for the same. If the Customer uses the Agency’s services already prior to that time, such use shall be based on a loan relationship that may be revoked at any time.

10.2 Modifications and/or editing of services of the Agency, including but not limited to further development of the same by the Customer or third parties working for the Customer, shall only be permitted with the express consent of the Agency and, to the extent that services are protected by copyright, of the author.

10.3 Use of the Agency’s services beyond the originally agreed purpose and scope of use shall be subject to the Agency’s consent irrespective of whether such service is protected by copyright or not. In consideration thereof the Agency and the author shall be entitled to a separate reasonable fee.

10.4 After expiration of the Agency Agreement use of services of the Agency and/or advertising means for which the Agency developed concepts or designs shall also be subject to the Agency’s consent irrespective of whether the service is protected by copyright or not.

10.5 In the first year after termination of the contract the Agency shall be entitled to the full agency fees agreed in the expired contract for any use described in paragraph 4. In the second and third year after expiration of the contract the Agency shall only be entitled to half or one fourth of the consideration agreed in the contract. From the fourth year after termination of the contract no agency fees shall be payable.

10.6 The Customer shall be liable to the Agency for any unlawful use in the amount of twice the reasonable fees for such use.


11. Identification marks

11.1 The Agency shall be entitled to make reference to the Agency and the author, if applicable, on all advertising means and in any advertising and promotion measures, without the Customer being entitled to any payment in this respect.

11.2 The Agency shall be entitled to make reference to its current or former business relationship with the Customer on its own advertising media, including but not limited to its website, by referring to the Customer’s business name and business logo, with the Customer having the right to revoke his consent in writing at any time.


12. Warranty

12.1 The Customer shall notify any defects immediately and in any case within eight days of delivery/provision of the service by the Agency and hidden defects not later than eight days after they were identified in writing including a description of the defect; otherwise the service shall be deemed accepted. In that case assertion of any warranty claims or claims for damages as well as the right to assert claims on account of mistake shall be excluded.

12.2 In the case of a justified and timely notification of defects the Customer shall be entitled to improvement or replacement of the delivery/service by the Agency. The Agency shall repair the defects within a reasonable period of time and the Customer shall enable the Agency to take all measures which are necessary for examination and repair of the defects. The Agency shall be entitled to refuse improvement of the service if such improvement is impossible or if the Agency were to incur disproportionately high costs. In that case the Customer shall be entitled to cancel the contract or get a fee reduction as provided for by law. In the case of improvement the Customer shall send the defective (physical) item at his cost.

12.3 The Customer shall also be obliged to examine the service for its lawfulness, including but not limited to competition law, trademark law, copyright law and administrative law. The Agency is obliged only to roughly examine lawfulness. In the case of slight negligence or after it has fulfilled its duty to warn the Customer, if any, the Agency shall not be liable for lawfulness of contents if they were advised or accepted by the Customer.

12.4 The warranty period shall be six months as of delivery/service. The right of recourse to the Agency as defined in Section 933 b (1) ABGB shall be forfeited one year after delivery/service. The Customer shall not be entitled to withhold payments on the ground of complaints. The presumption rule [Vermutungsregel] of Section 924 ABGB shall be excluded. 


13. Liability and product liability

13.1 In cases of slight negligence liability of the Agency and its employees, contractors or other agents [translator’s note: Erfüllungsgehilfen as defined by Section 1313a ABGB] (“People”) for damage to property or pecuniary loss suffered by the Customer shall be excluded, be it indirect or direct damage, lost profit or consequential damage resulting from a defect, damage due to default, impossibility, breach of obligation, culpa in contrahendo or due to defective or incomplete performance. The harmed party shall have to prove gross negligence. To the extent that the Agency’s liability is excluded or limited this shall also apply to personal liability of its People.

13.2 Any liability of the Agency for claims asserted vis-à-vis the Customer on the ground of services rendered by the Agency (e.g. advertising and promotion measures) shall be expressly excluded, provided that the Agency complied with its duty to inform or if it was unable to see such a duty, even due to slight negligence. The Agency shall, in particular, not be liable for costs of legal proceedings, lawyer’s fees of the Customer or costs of publication of judgments or for claims for damages, if any, or other claims of third parties; the Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless the Agency in this respect.

13.3 Claims of the Customer for damages shall be forfeited six months after knowledge of the damage and in any case three years after the Agency’s infringement. Claims for damages shall be limited to the net contract value.


14. Privacy

The Customer agrees that his personal data like name, occupation, date of birth, Business Register Number, powers to represent the company, contact person, business address and other addresses of the Customer, phone number, e-mail address, bank details, credit card details, VAT number may be collected, stored and processed electronically for the purpose of performance of the contract and support of the Customer and for the Agency’s own advertising and promotion purposes, for example by sending him offers, advertising brochures or newsletters (in hard copy or electronic form) and for the purpose of making reference to the current of former business relationship with the Customer. The Customer agrees to be sent electronic mail for advertising purposes until further notice.
Such consent may be revoked in writing via e-mail or letter to the contact details stated in the header of these GTC at any time.


15. Applicable law

The Agreement and all mutual rights and duties resulting therefrom as well as any claims between the Agency and the Customer shall be subject to Austrian substantive law, and its conflicts of laws rules and UN Sales Law shall be excluded.


16. Place of performance and place of jurisdiction

16.1 The place of performance shall be the registered office of the Agency. In the case that goods are shipped the risk shall pass to the Customer once the Agency has delivered the goods to the carrier chosen by it.

16.2 The agreed place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes arising between the Agency and Customer in connection with this contractual relationship shall be the court having jurisdiction over the subject-matter and the Agency’s registered office. Notwithstanding the foregoing the Agency shall be entitled to sue the Customer at his general place of jurisdiction.

16.3 If only the masculine form is used herein for describing natural persons it shall equally refer to women and men. If a specific person is referred to, the respective gender-specific form shall be used.

1. Applicability and scope of the General Terms and Conditions

1.1 The following General Terms and Conditions shall apply if the Photographer’s contractual partner is an entrepreneur within the meaning of Section 1 of the Austrian Consumer Protection Act (KSchG).

1.2 The Photographer shall provide his services exclusively on the basis of the following General Terms and Conditions. By placing the order, the Client acknowledges their applicability. Unless amended by the Photographer, they shall also apply to all future business relations, even if no express reference is made to them. Any general terms and conditions of the contractual partner shall not become part of the contract.

1.3 Should individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be invalid, this shall not affect the binding nature of the remaining provisions of the contracts concluded on the basis thereof. An invalid provision shall be replaced by a valid provision that comes as close as possible to its meaning and purpose.

1.4 Offers made by the Photographer are subject to confirmation and are non-binding.


2. Copyright provisions

2.1 The Photographer shall be entitled to all copyrights and ancillary copyrights of the Photographer (§§1, 2 para. 2, 73ff UrhG). Permission to use (publication rights, etc.) shall only be deemed to have been granted if expressly agreed. In this case, the contractual partner shall acquire a simple (non-exclusive and non-exclusive), non-transferable (assignable) license to use the material for the expressly agreed purpose and within the agreed limits (circulation figure, time and place restrictions, etc.); in case of doubt, the scope of use stated in the invoice or delivery bill shall be decisive. In any case, the contractual partner shall only acquire as many rights as correspond to the disclosed purpose of the contract (order placed). In the absence of any other agreement, the authorization of use shall be deemed granted only for a single publication (in one edition), only for the expressly designated medium of the client and not for advertising purposes.

2.2 The contracting party shall be obligated for each use (reproduction, distribution, broadcasting, etc.) to clearly and legibly (visibly) affix the manufacturer’s designation (naming) or the copyright notice within the meaning of the WURA (World Copyright Treaty), in particular not in abbreviated form and in normal type, directly next to the photograph and clearly assignable to it as follows: Photograph: (c) … name/company/artist name of photographer; place and, if published, year of first publication. In any case, this provision shall be deemed to be the affixing of the manufacturer’s designation within the meaning of Section 74 (3) UrhG. If the photograph is signed on the front side (in the picture), the publication of this signature does not replace the manufacturer’s note described above.

2.3 Any alteration of the Photograph shall require the Photographer’s written consent. This shall only not apply if the change is required in accordance with the purpose of the contract known to the Photographer.

2.4 The permission to use the Photograph shall only be deemed to have been granted in the event of full payment of the agreed shooting and usage fee and only if a proper manufacturer’s designation / naming (Item 2.2 above) is provided.

2.5 In the event of publication, two free specimen copies shall be sent. In the case of expensive products (art books, video cassettes), the number of specimen copies shall be reduced to one. In the case of publication on the Internet, the photographer must be informed of the web address.


3. Ownership of film material – Archiving

3.1.1 Analog photography
The right of ownership to the exposed film material (negatives, slides, etc.) shall be vested in the Photographer. The Photographer shall transfer ownership of the film material required for the agreed use to the Contractual Partner in return for an agreed and reasonable fee. 
The Photographs supplied shall remain the property of the Photographer until the purchase price has been paid in full. 
Slides (negatives only in the event of a written agreement) shall only be made available to the Photographer on loan against return after use at the risk and expense of the Photographer, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

3.1.2 Digital photography
The Photographer shall be entitled to ownership of the image files. A right to the surrender of digital image files shall exist only upon express written agreement and – in the absence of any agreement to the contrary – shall relate only to a selection and not to all of the image files produced by the Photographer.
In any case, the permission to use shall be deemed granted only to the extent set forth in Section 2.1. 

3.2 Reproduction or dissemination of Photographs in online databases, in electronic archives, on the Internet or in intranets which are not intended solely for the Client’s internal use, on diskettes, CD-ROMs or similar data carriers shall only be permitted on the basis of a special agreement between the Photographer and the Client. The right to a backup copy shall remain unaffected.

3.3 The Photographer shall archive the Photograph without legal obligation for a period of one year. In the event of loss or damage, the contractual partner shall not be entitled to any claims.


4. Labeling

4.1 The Photographer shall be entitled to mark the Photographs as well as the digital image files with its manufacturer’s designation in any manner it deems suitable (including on the front). The contractual partner shall be obliged to ensure the integrity of the manufacturer’s designation, in particular in the case of permitted transfer to third parties (printers, etc.). If necessary, the manufacturer’s designation shall be affixed or renewed. This shall also apply in particular to all means of reproduction created during production or when making copies of digital image files.

4.2 The contractual partner shall be obliged to store digital photographs in such a way that the manufacturer’s designation remains electronically linked to the images so that it is preserved in any type of data transmission and the photographer can be clearly and unambiguously identified as the originator of the images.


5. Secondary obligations

5.1 The Client shall be responsible for obtaining any necessary permits for the use of the work by third parties and for obtaining consent to the depiction of persons. He shall indemnify and hold the Photographer harmless in this respect, in particular with regard to claims arising from the right to one’s own image pursuant to Section 78 of the Austrian Copyright Act (UrhG) and with regard to claims for use pursuant to Section 1041 of the Austrian Civil Code (ABGB). The Photographer guarantees the consent of authorized persons only in the event of express written consent for the contractual purposes of use (Item 2.1).

5.2 If the Photographer is commissioned by the Contractual Partner to electronically process third party Photographs, the Client warrants that it is entitled to do so and shall indemnify the Photographer against all third party claims based on a breach of this obligation.

5.3 The Client undertakes to collect any objects to be photographed immediately after the photograph has been taken. If these objects are not collected at the latest after two working days following a request to do so, the Photographer shall be entitled to charge storage costs or to store the objects at the Client’s expense. Transport and storage costs shall be borne by the client in this case.


6. Loss and damage

6.1 In the event of loss of or damage to photographs produced on commission (slides, negatives, digital image files), the Photographer shall be liable – under whatever legal title – only for intent and gross negligence. The liability is limited to his own fault and that of his employees; for third parties (laboratories etc.) the photographer is only liable for intent and gross negligence in the selection. Any liability is limited to the cost of materials and the repetition of the photographs free of charge (if and insofar as this is possible). The client shall not be entitled to any further claims; in particular, the photographer shall not be liable for any travel and accommodation expenses or third-party costs (models, assistants, make-up artists and other shooting personnel) or for loss of profit, consequential and immaterial damages. Claims for damages exist only if gross negligence is proven by the injured party. Claims for compensation shall become statute-barred 3 months after knowledge of the damage and the damaging party, but in any case 10 years after the service or delivery has been rendered.

6.2 Point 6.1 shall apply mutatis mutandis in the event of loss of or damage to handed-over artwork (films, layouts, display pieces, other artwork, etc.) and handed-over products and props. More valuable items are to be insured by the contractual partner.


7. Premature dissolution

The Photographer shall be entitled to terminate the contract with immediate effect for good cause. In particular, good cause shall be deemed to exist if bankruptcy or composition proceedings are instituted against the Client’s assets or if an application to institute such proceedings is dismissed for lack of sufficient assets to cover costs, or if the Client ceases to make payments, or if there are justified doubts as to the Client’s creditworthiness and the Client fails to make advance payments or provide suitable security after being requested to do so by the Photographer, or if performance of the service becomes impossible for reasons for which the contractual partner is responsible or is further delayed despite the granting of a 14-day grace period, or if the contractual partner continues to breach material obligations under the agreement, such as payment of a due partial amount or duties to cooperate, despite a written warning setting a grace period of 14 days.


8. Performance and warranty

8.1 The Photographer shall carefully execute the order placed. He may also have the order executed – in whole or in part – by third parties. Unless the contracting party issues written instructions, the Photographer shall be free to choose the manner in which the order is executed. This applies in particular to the composition of the picture, the selection of the models, the location and the photographic means used. Deviations from previous deliveries shall not constitute a defect as such.

8.2 The Photographer shall not be liable for defects caused by incorrect or inaccurate instructions of the contractual partner (§ 1168a ABGB). In any case, the Photographer shall only be liable for intent and gross negligence.

8.3 The contractual partner shall bear the risk for all circumstances that are not in the person of the photographer, such as weather conditions for outdoor shoots, timely provision of products and props, failure of models, travel obstructions, etc.

8.4 Shipments travel at the expense and risk of the contractual partner.

8.5 The Photographer reserves the right – apart from those cases in which the contractual partner is legally entitled to rescission – to fulfill the warranty claim at his discretion by improvement, exchange or price reduction. In this respect, the contractual partner must always prove that the defect was already present at the time of delivery. The goods are to be inspected immediately after delivery. Any defects discovered in the course of such inspection must also be notified to the Photographer in writing without delay, but no later than 8 days after delivery, stating the nature and extent of the defect. Hidden defects must be notified immediately upon their discovery. If a complaint is not made or not made in good time, the goods shall be deemed to have been approved. The assertion of warranty or claims for damages, including consequential damages, as well as the right to contest errors on the basis of defects, shall be excluded in such cases. The warranty period shall be 3 months.

8.6 No liability shall be assumed for insignificant defects. Color differences in the case of repeat orders shall not be deemed to be a significant defect. Point 6.1 shall apply accordingly.

8.7 We shall only be liable for fixed order dates if expressly agreed in writing. In the event of any delays in delivery, 6.1 shall apply accordingly.

8.8 Minor delays in delivery shall be accepted in any case without the contracting party being entitled to claim damages or to rescind the contract.

8.9 Any licenses granted by the Photographer shall not include the public performance of audio works in any media.


9. Remuneration for work / fee

9.1 In the absence of an express written agreement, the Photographer shall be entitled to a remuneration for work and services (fee) in accordance with his price lists as amended from time to time, otherwise an appropriate fee.

9.2 The fee shall also be due for layout or presentation shots and if utilization is omitted or depends on the decision of third parties. In this case, no price reductions shall be granted on the recording fee.

In any case, this provision shall be deemed to be the affixing of the manufacturer’s designation within the meaning of Section 74 (3) UrhG.
