1. General: These general terms and conditions apply to all services provided by POP-POT sprl. They constitute the contract binding the parties, excluding any of the client’s own conditions. The non-implementation of any clause included in these general terms and conditions may not be interpreted as a waiver of that clause by POP-POT sprl in the future.
2. Price and taxes: All prices are in EURO and subject to VAT (6% on food, 21% on drinks, services, delivery and material).
3. Offer: Offers by POP-POT sprl are made without commitment.
4. Validity of the offer: In all circumstances the prices stated in the offer will no longer be valid if the offer has not been signed by the client and returned to POP-POT sprl at email@example.com within a period of 15 days from the date appearing at the bottom right of the offer letter.
5. Revision: The offer is calculated on basis of the anticipated number of guests, the formulas chosen, the venue and the requested services. Any change automatically entails a price revision. Each updated offer replaces the previous one. POP-POT sprl reserves the right to change prices from one offer to the other.
6. Confirmation and 50% deposit: By signing the offer, the client acknowledges having read these general conditions and accepts them without exception. POP-POT sprl may only be considered committed when it has received the signed offer from the client and when the requested deposit of 50% of the total amount has been paid within 5 days after signature.
7. Number of guests: The final number of guests must be confirmed by the client at the latest 5 working days before the date of the event and it will be invoiced. If the client communicates a higher number of guests less than 5 days notice before the event, it expressly agrees that the extra guests will be charged to it at 125%. This clause is a priority for POP-POT sprl to optimise our services and avoid food waste.
8. Cancellation: The client must inform POP-POT sprl about the cancellation of an order by registered mail sent to POP-POT sprl, Rue Berthelot 106-108 Boîte 6, 1190 Forest. In case of cancellation with more than 15 days notice before the event (post date of the registered letter), the client undertakes to indemnify POP-POT sprl to the amount of a fixed fee of 25% of the agreed offer. In case of cancellation with less than 15 days notice before the event (post date of the registered letter), POP-POT sprl will keep the 50% deposit as compensation. In the event of cancellation received less than 5 working days before the date of the event, the full amount indicated in the offer must be paid. We reserve the right to charge an additional fee for any additional costs related to the cancellation.
9. Invoice: Both parties expressly agree that invoices not challenged by registered mail within 8 days of the invoice date will be deemed to have been accepted.
10. Payment terms: All invoices are payable in full within 15 calendar days by bank transfer according to POP-POT sprl bank details mentioned in the invoice. Amounts not paid on time will automatically and without notice give rise to interest on arrears of 1% per month and a fixed and irreducible fee of 15% with a minimum of €125 by way of damages and interests.
11. Venue: The reservation of the event venue, the signing of the rental contract and the payment of the deposit and rental fee are under the responsibility of the client. POP-POT sprl has the right to apply extra fee for undertaking venue research and coordination with the venue’s team. This fee does not take into account any organisational difficulties encountered at certain locations during the event and may be communicated by POP-POT sprl to the client and adjusted according to the circumstances.
12. Delivery fee: Delivery may be charged depending on the service, distance and parking accessibility. The client should communicate to POP-POT sprl available parking places or garage, internal lifts to limit extra fees and optimise delivery.
13. Corkage fee: POP-POT sprl will not apply any corkage fee when managing exclusively catering services. Due to specific conditions imposed by the event venue, a corkage fee may be applied and invoiced to the client according to the rental contract.
14. Service: In cases the order also includes the provision of services, the client gives its express permission to POP-POT sprl to engage, in the form of a contract for the supply of services, any waiters and additional staff necessary for the fulfilment of the conditions stipulated in the offer, of which the client states his awareness and which the client accepts. The client commits to reimbursing any such costs upon the first demand. The client expressly states that POP-POT sprl cannot be held responsible for any matters arising within the framework of this mandate and that it will indemnify against any action that may be taken against the latter by a member of staff used.
15. Rented equipment: Only if requested by the client, POP-POT sprl can rent equipment such as tables, benches, tableware, decor, lights, etc. to the client. This service may be specified if included in the offer. The equipment are delivered by POP-POT sprl in perfect conditions and according to the quantities specified in the offer. The client is not allowed to modify the rented equipment.
16. Loss, damage and breakage: Any rental of equipment is at the sole responsibility of the client who will be liable for any loss or damage of whatever kind, accidental or not, to it. Thus any damage, particularly to table coverings (burns, stains…) or to equipment will be charged to the client. The charge will be calculated on the replacement value of the said equipment.

Liability: The client expressly and irrevocably releases POP-POT sprl from any liability in the event of an accident at the venue and from any liability for any damage that may be caused by guests at the venue. The client will be held responsible for any theft, damage or destruction of the equipment rented by POP-POT sprl. POP-POT sprl declines all responsibility for any delay, stop or start of delivery caused by difficult access to the client’s premises or insufficient preparation of the premises, and more generally in the event of force majeure or situations beyond its control (strike, bad weather, driving accident, serious personal problems).
