1. If Moviebird AS rents out to its Client(s) movable assets, including, but not limited to a Russian Arm with accessories and/or Flight Heads (hereinafter the Equipment), whether or not through a Third Party, or otherwise makes it available (whether or not against payment), the risk of using this Equipment always passes to the Client from the moment Moviebird AS makes the Equipment available to the Client.
2. The Equipment is considered to have been made available in the meaning of Article 5.1 from the moment it is moved from its location.
3. The Client accepts the (transport) costs, including for the delivery and return of the Equipment, and the related risks, unless otherwise agreed. The Client should always inspect the supplied Equipment upon delivery for any defects.
4. The Client can only use the Equipment (excluding any Third Parties) in and for its own company at the agreed location/place, in accordance with the agreed purposes and period.

8. The Client will take effective and timely action to prevent damage to the Equipment. The Client will immediately inform Moviebird AS of any damage to the Equipment. The Client is liable for all damage to the Equipment (also in case of force major, storms, etc.), including but not limited to damage sustained during its use (including assembly, installation and dismantling), and for the loss and/or theft thereof, unless such damage is deliberate or a result of conscious recklessness on the part of Moviebird AS .

The Client will provide Moviebird AS at the first request with a copy of the policy conditions, confirming that this is the case, accompanied by proof that the (relevant) equipment is insured.
Fees and costs of the assignment
1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing or digitally, Moviebird AS will carry out its work on an hourly basis at an agreed hourly rate, with a minimum of 10 hours. If no rate has been agreed, then the last rate used by the parties applies, or, in the absence thereof, the standard market rate. Any travel time is charged at the above hourly rate. Any additional costs related to the assignment in question, such as travel and accommodation costs, are not included in the hourly rate. Moviebird AS is entitled to charge these additional costs to the Client. Moviebird AS may carry out the assignment in stages and invoice the work done separately. Moviebird AS may request an advance from the Client. Both fees and costs can be settled by advance payment.
2. Because of the demand for the Equipment, the Russian Arm and Flight Heads in particular, Moviebird AS may charge the rental fee of the Equipment for the hours (expressed in hours, days or otherwise) already agreed with the Client, if the Client cancels the relevant assignment for its own reasons, to a minimum of 24 hours.
3. Moviebird AS reserves the right to raise its rates if Moviebird AS ’s costs increase due to circumstances beyond its control, including but not limited to an increase in costs of Third Parties hired by Moviebird AS , fuel and energy prices.
Payment terms
1. Unless otherwise agreed in writing, Moviebird AS ’s invoices must be paid in full within 10 days of the invoice date. After the expiry of this term, the Client will be in default. In that case the Clien also owes Moviebird AS all extrajudicial costs, including but not limited to all (lawyer’s) costs and/or bailiff fees in connection with the judicial recovery of overdue claims (or portions thereof).
2. Moviebird AS may suspend its work at any time if the Client fails to comply with one or more provisions of these general terms and conditions or if it is reasonably foreseeable that the Client will not comply. If, in the Client’s view, Moviebird AS has failed to properly perform its work, the Client has to inform Moviebird AS in writing stating the reasons within 14 days of the date.
3. When the Client discovered this defect or can reasonably be deemed to have discovered it, in the absence of which the Client can no longer make any claims regarding the alleged defect.
Change of scope of assignment, or additional work
1. The Client accepts that the timing of the assignment may be affected if the parties agree to change the approach, method or scope of the assignment and/or expand the resulting work. If the interim change affects the agreed fee or expense reimbursements, Moviebird AS will inform the Client as soon as possible after becoming aware thereof. In case of an interim change to the assignment or execution of the assignment caused by the Client’s actions, Moviebird AS will make the necessary adjustments if the quality of the service requires this. If an adjustment results in additional work, the associated costs are borne by the Client. If circumstances lead to a longer (rental) period and/or assignment than the initial period agreed between the parties and the associated (hourly) rate, Moviebird AS may charge additional (rental) fees, which the Client will then owe to Moviebird AS in proportion to the earlier agreed price.
Duration and completion of the assignment
1. The duration of the assignment can, apart from the efforts of Moviebird AS , be affected by many factors, such as the quality of the information Moviebird AS receives and the cooperation granted by the Client. Moviebird AS is not liable for any (longer) turnaround time for carrying out the assignment. The assignment is completed when the final invoice has been paid by the Client.
1. Notwithstanding the matters provided for in Article 3.3. and Article 5.8. Moviebird AS will not be liable for indirect damage, including but not limited to consequential loss, loss of film production time, loss of revenue and damage to movable assets of the Client and/or other Third Parties (including damage to movable assets and property and/or registered property, on which Moviebird AS ’s Equipment is mounted). The Client indemnifies Moviebird AS against all claims from Third Parties arising from or in connection with an instruction given by the Client to Moviebird AS .
2. Any liability of Moviebird AS is limited to the amount covered by Moviebird AS ’s insurance in such a case. If this does not provide any cover and/or no amount is paid, the damage is limited to the agreed fee (without costs and VAT) paid for the last completed assignment. If Moviebird AS ’s insurance does not provide cover and/or no payment is made and if nothing has been invoiced yet by Moviebird AS , any liability of Moviebird AS is limited to an amount of € 10,000 (ten thousand euros) per event.
3. Each Client must take all reasonable measures to limit the damage for which Moviebird AS is liable. The Client is obliged to adequately insure (“all risk”) the activities he performs or will perform (including insuring any Equipment made available to him and the Third Parties as mentioned above) and that are related to the assignment granted to Moviebird AS . Moviebird AS is not liable for damages that (i) are not covered by an insurance, while this would have been the case if the Client had adequately insured itself, and (ii) has occurred or become worse because the Client has not observed his damage limitation obligation, as intended in this Article.
4. Moviebird AS must be notified in writing of its liability by a Client or a Third Party within seven days of it becoming known to the party holding Moviebird AS liable, so that Moviebird AS can inform its insurer and, where necessary, investigate the circumstances of the facts on which the liability claim is based. The potential adverse consequences or additional costs of failure to comply with this period (such as damage because of the inability to take protective measures and/or the collection of evidence concerning the actual events) will be borne by the party holding Moviebird AS liable. If a liability claim has not been communicated to Moviebird AS within a period not exceeding two months after the damage became known, any potential liability of Moviebird AS will lapse because the liability claim has not been communicated within the reasonable period of time as referred to in Article 6:89 CC.
Waiver of rights
