Conditions Générales de vente
Article 1. Recitals
Any use of Le Studio’s premises or outbuildings shall imply formal acceptance subject to no exceptions or reservations by the client or any person representing said client of the General Terms of Sale. The client represents that it is in possession of said General Terms of Sale and has taken cognizance thereof. It is agreed that the client’s acceptance of a quote, placing a dated and signed order, payment of a down payment or the commencement of performance of a service shall imply acceptance hereof.
Article 2. Terms and conditions of lease and running of the premises
The client undertakes to provide Le Studio with a call sheet prior to each service stipulating the names and positions of the persons present on the leased studio set. Therefore, the latter shall be deemed to be authorised by the Client to incur any expense with regard to Le Studio. However, the Client may first formally appoint one person to be responsible for the expenses incurred on its behalf with regard to Le Studio. If no call sheet exists or no person has been designated, all persons present at the studio set shall be deemed to be authorised by the Client.
Any service carried out by the Le Studio shall give rise to the studio set assistant drawing up a studio set sheet providing details of the equipment and services requested by the Client.
This studio set sheet shall be subject to the approval by the Client or one of its representatives to whom a copy shall be provided.
The studio set sheet shall be used for invoicing purposes. No disputes at a later date shall be accepted by Le Studio.
Moreover, an expenses sheet shall be completed for each service by the studio set assistant and signed by the Client. This sheet shall state the expenses incurred by Le Studio on behalf of the Client. These expenses shall be increased by 100% on the final invoice for the service.
It is expressly agreed and accepted by the Client that our studios are invoiced on a daily basis for a period of ten hours from 9.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.

Any order cancelled less than 96 hours prior to the commencement of the service shall be invoiced in full.
Any equipment or accessory which is not collected within 48 hours following the completion of the service shall give rise to the payment by the Client of a daily storage fee calculated based on the volume stored. Articles which are not collected by the Client within seven calendar days shall be placed in a skip and shall be invoiced in addition.
Due to security reasons, the Client shall be liable for dispatch riders which it uses. Therefore, it undertakes to personally deposit and take delivery of its letters at the reception desk insofar as dispatch riders are not authorised to drive in the company’s premises.
In the Client’s absence, the stamp affixed by Le Studio on letters and delivery forms shall not incur its liability and shall uniquely confirm the delivery man’s visit to his company and shall not under any circumstances constitute a receipt or acceptance of the goods.
