These general terms and conditions apply to all offers by and all agreements with Are Agency (KBO number BE 0699.758.196), hereinafter “Are Agency”, even if conflicting provisions appear on client documents.

Purchase or other terms and conditions of the client are not applicable to Are Agency unless expressly accepted in writing by Are Agency.

2.3 The client is always responsible for the correct and timely delivery of information, cooperation and input regarding the services and works provided by Are Agency.

2.3 Any changes or additional services, whether in line with but not including the quotation, will be performed at the then current hourly rate unless otherwise agreed in writing.

2.4 Travel and relocation costs are always to be borne by the customer, unless otherwise expressly agreed.

4.3 Any agreement shall be terminated by operation of law in case of bankruptcy of one of the parties. However, services already performed remain due and payable.


5.1 The commitments made by Are Agency are effort/resource commitments. Therefore, deadlines are always indicative. That is, the date of delivery is given only as an indication, but does not bind Are Agency. Delay in delivery does not entitle the customer to compensation for damages or price reduction, nor to rescind the contract.

5.2 If the parties have expressly agreed on a binding delivery period, this period shall be extended if the customer fails to transmit information, documents, originals or images (on time) and to accept the improved proofs (on time), or if the customer places additional orders.

6.5 Website development services are considered provisionally delivered and accepted as soon as they are presented to the customer for testing. After development, we provide transparent handover and installation. This preliminary acceptance will become final without written notice to the client after 4 weeks, which means that additional changes will be billed by Are Agency additionally on a directional basis.

6.6 The client expressly acknowledges that Are Agency can only be held liable for proven damages as a direct result of intentional fault of Are Agency.

6.7 Are Agency cannot be held liable for any fault (even gross fault) of its or its appointees, except in case of fraud.

6.8 In any case, the liability is limited to the amount, equal to the invoice amount of the last month of the commitment or the invoice amount for the development of the website, or the re-performance of the services, this always at the discretion of Are Agency. Are Agency’s total liability will never exceed the price paid by the client to Are Agency for the services that gave rise to the claim. Regarding services derived from suppliers, Are Agency does not assume any liability above or beyond that which the suppliers are willing to accept for their products or services.


6.9 All legal claims of the client against Are Agency, including claims for damages, shall expire three months after the relevant claim arose.

7.2 The client acknowledges that with regard to development in any form, by Are Agency, flawless operation of a computer configuration (the entirety of software and hardware) can never be guaranteed and that this, as well as certain cases of force majeure or malicious intent (hacking, denial of service,…) may result, among other things, in the loss of (even all) of the client’s programs and/or data. Accordingly, the customer undertakes to take such precautions as it deems necessary to limit the consequences of such circumstance. In addition, the customer expressly acknowledges that he can insure himself for the harmful consequences that such facts would result in for his business processes, managed customer and personal data and other data.

9.4 In case of non-payment on the scheduled due date, a conventional interest of 10% per annum and increased by an irrevocable fixed damages clause of 15% with a minimum of 100 EUR shall be payable on the invoice amount by operation of law without any notice of default.

9.5 The non-payment on the due date of a single invoice makes the balance due on all other invoices, even those not due, immediately payable by operation of law.


10.1 All complaints, as well as comments and restrictions in connection with the invoice and/or the general terms and conditions stated thereon, must be sent by the customer within 8 days by registered and reasoned letter to the registered office of our company, under penalty of expiry.

10.2 The filing of a complaint does not release the customer from his payment obligation.


11.1 The parties will initially attempt to resolve a dispute that has arisen by mutual agreement.

11.2 Belgian law shall apply between Are Agency and the client. All disputes, which directly or indirectly relate to the work or subjects under discussion, shall be subject to the courts of our registered office which shall have exclusive jurisdiction, unless one party, as first claimant, requests the Institute of Arbitration (www.euro-arbitration.org) to designate the Arbitral Tribunal, which shall settle each dispute according to the Standard Dispute Rules. This provision replaces all conflicting jurisdiction clauses.


If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is null and void or destroyed, the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in full force and effect. In that case, the parties will consult with the aim of agreeing on new provisions to replace the void or voided provisions, taking into account as much as possible the purpose and meaning of the void or voided provisions.
