If the Agreement is concluded by two or more Customers jointly, each of them is jointly and severally liable for the fulfilment of the obligations under the Agreement.

Article 5: Assignment


Wild Heart Tales will make every effort to perform her Services with care, using the professional standards. Wild Heart Tales will use her own style by doing so. The Customer is aware of this style and agrees to this style being applied by Wild Heart Tales. Adjustments regarding lighting and contrast can be made but Wild Heart Tales is not obliged to do so. This also applies to photo editing for other photographers, in which Wild Heart Tales will match the style of the photographer in question as much as possible.
Wild Heart Tales is entitled to:
a. use her own technical and creative insight in situations which are not described in the Agreement;
b. engage third parties for the execution of the Agreement. The necessary care will be taken in this regard. However, Wild Heart Tales is not liable for any shortcomings of these third parties;
c. cancel any advisory-, training-, supervision- or coaching program without stating reasons;
d. refuse a Participant by referring to paragraph 21 of this article;
e. change the content of the Offer for reasons of qualitative improvement.
During and after photo shoots, photos are saved in duplicate. A backup camera is available during wedding photography.
Customer is not entitled to hire a second shooter selected by him/her without the prior written consent of Wild Heart Tales.

Unless mentioned otherwise the performance of Services will be:
a. In case of wedding photography: at the location of the wedding whereby Customer will be responsible for location fees such as, but not limited to, entrance fees and parking costs.;
b. In case of any other photography: at a location to be decided by Wild Heart Tales and Customer;
In case of other photography, Wild Heart Tales is entitled to change the date and/or location for organisational reasons and will get prior confirmation from Customer.

Wild Heart Tales will compose the selection of photos which will be delivered to Customer. The file format may differ per photo, based upon the professional judgement of Wild Heart Tales. Customer ensures that the definite selection of photos for the photo album will be passed on to Wild Heart Tales within 10 (ten) working days after delivery of the selection in order for YourMoments to order and deliver the album on time.
It is not possible to inspect the photos between the Date of the photo shoot and the delivery of the photos. Delivery of the images normally takes place within:
– 2 (two) week after Date at photo shoots
– 6 (six) weeks after Date at weddings. The Customer will also receive a sneak preview within 1 (one) week.
The terms of delivery will never be a strict deadline. The Customer will allow Wild Heart Tales a reasonable term to provide the agreed Services in case of expiration.
Delivered photos are edited by Wild Heart Tales. Editing will be done in the style that is typical of YourMoments and from which no deviations are made, whether or not requested.
No RAW images will be shared with Customer unless purchased.
Wild Heart Tales makes an effort to keep delivered photos for two years as of date of delivery. However, this is only for Wild Heart Tales’ internal matters so no rights can be derived by Customer nor any liability can be stipulated.

Additional work
If it appears necessary to change or supplement the Agreement during the performance of services, Customer and Wild Heart Tales will amend the Agreement timely, in writing and jointly. They will inform each other about exceeding the originally agreed delivery time, financial and/or qualitative consequences.
Not or not immediately executing the amended Agreement will not constitute a default on the side of Wild Heart Tales and is therefore no ground to dissolve the Agreement in accordance with article 12 of these Terms and Conditions.

Obligations Customer and/or Participant
Beside the obligations and responsibilities of Wild Heart Tales, Customer and Participant remain responsible and liable for the extent to which advice given by Wild Heart Tales is used and implemented.
The effort of a Customer and Participant is of crucial importance for the progress of a process. Especially availability and cooperation. Customer and Participant are responsible for scheduling training courses in a timely manner. If the Customer and/or Participant, after a proposal from Wild Heart Tales, does not schedule a date for a training within six months, Wild Heart Tales can charge a reasonable compensation for reservation costs. This does not apply when Customer or Participant is a Consumer.
Customer and the Participant will always provide Wild Heart Tales, both when asked and on her/his own initiative, with all cooperation and relevant information, specifications, materials, licenses and choices in whatever form needed in order for Wild Heart Tales to execute the Assignment.
Customer and Participant are never entitled to provide her/his login details to third parties. If the Customer and/or Participant does so anyway, the Customer and/or Participant are obliged to pay Wild Heart Tales an amount of €1,000 due to infringement of Wild Heart Tales’ copyrights. If the Participant works for the Customer, Wild Heart Tales will address this fine to the Customer.
Customer and/or Participant enables Wild Heart Tales all access, both physical and online, in order to perform her Services.
Customer and/or Participant behave carefully and refrain from unlawful behaviour during Wild Heart Tales’ services. Unlawful behaviour includes in any case illegal activities or behaviour and statements that are contrary to public order, morality or other laws and regulations. Wild Heart Tales can never be held liable for unlawful behaviour of Customer and/or Participant and will be able dissolve the agreement on the basis of article 12, paragraph 2, sub f of these Terms and Conditions, while retaining the right to be compensated for damage suffered by Wild Heart Tales because of this unlawful behaviour.
Delivery of the photo album: When booking a wedding photography package, a photo album is included. It is important for the customer to take the necessary steps to receive the photo album within a reasonable timeframe after the wedding. We strive to have the photo album ready within 3 months after the wedding. However, if the customer is negligent and fails to order the photo album within one year after the wedding, the right to receive the photo album may expire, or a fee of 100 Euros may be charged. Please note that it is the customer’s responsibility to provide all necessary materials and information for the production of the photo album.

Article 6: Rates

The rates as mentioned in the Offer or on the Website are binding and fixed. They are stated in Euros. Unless mentioned otherwise, all prices stated in the Agreement and the Offer include VAT and other governmental levies. A standard travel allowance applies for assignments which take place abroad (outside the Netherlands). Customer is responsible for travel expenses such as airline tickets, hotels and meals. Mentioned prices are exclusive of any other additional individual wishes of the Customer.
In case wedding photography will take longer than 4 hours, Wild Heart Tales will be offered a nutritious meal.
Prices and other conditions mentioned in the Agreement or the Offer only relate to that specific Agreement and do not apply to new Offers or extension of the Agreement. Wild Heart Tales reserves the right to change her Rates at any time. Changes will be sent to existing Customer.

Article 7: Invoicing and payment

For the services of Wild Heart Tales the Customer will pay the fee stated in the Agreement and as indicated on the invoice. This payment is partially made in advance and the final payment need to be done at the latest on the day of the shoot or wedding. For this, an invoice will be sent to the Customer by PDF. The Customer states the appropriate e-mail address on the Registration Form and herewith agrees to a digital invoice.
Payment must be made net to Wild Heart Tales’ bank account, without any discount, deduction or settlement. The down payment of the invoice, in case of wedding photography € 500,00 (destination € 1000) and for other shoots € 50,00, must be received at the bank account of Wild Heart Tales at the time of the final booking, stating the invoice number. After payment, the date of the photo shoot is final. The remainder must be paid on the due date stated on the invoice. The total amount of the invoice must therefore be received by Wild Heart Tales no later than the Date of the photo shoot. Photos will not be delivered until full payment of the invoice is received.
The terms mentioned in this provision are deadlines. The value date stated on Wild Heart Tales’ bank statements is regarded the day of payment. If the Customer fails to pay on time or in full within the Payment Term, default will occur immediately after expiry of this term, without further notice of default being required from Wild Heart Tales. Wild Heart Tales is also entitled to suspend the Services to be provided or to grant the date to another Customer without being liable for compensation.
Upon commencement of default up to and including the date of full payment of the payment due, the Customer owes a delay surcharge. This surcharge consists of 1 (one) percent of that sum per month that payment is not made. A part of a month counts as a full month. The Customer is also liable for expenses incurred and to be incurred to collect the damage legally and extrajudicially. These costs are determined in accordance with the then applicable Decree on compensation for extrajudicial collection costs. For business Customers, however, these costs amount to at least 15% of the payment due. Any judicial, extrajudicial and execution costs including interest will also be claimed from the Customer.
The fees owed by the Customer to Wild Heart Tales can never be suspended or set off against any claim of the Customer against Wild Heart Tales.
If payment must be made in advance, the Customer cannot assert any right to delivery thereof before full payment of the amount has been received by Wild Heart Tales.
Incoming payments always serve to settle judicial and extrajudicial costs and interest, and subsequently serve to settle the oldest outstanding payment obligations, regardless of any other indication by the Customer.

Article 8: Liability

Wild Heart Tales makes every effort to the best of her knowledge and ability to provide the Services in the most careful manner. This will be a best efforts obligation and shall not constitute an obligation to perform or a guarantee commitment.

Wild Heart Tales is not liable for damage caused by information sent online or via the internet by the Customer.
The liability of Wild Heart Tales shall in no event extend beyond compensation of the maximum invoice value as stated in article 6 of these Terms and Conditions or offering a new photo shoot in writing. The decision between these options is made by Wild Heart Tales based on the circumstances of the particular case. The extent to which the shortcoming could be attributed to Wild Heart Tales determines the amount of compensation. Minor deviation cannot lead to compensation. Wild Heart Tales never covers more than the insurance compensation received by Wild Heart Tales under her business liability insurance.
Direct or indirect damage resulting from entering into, maintaining and/or handling transactions and agreements between the Customer and its (third) contracting parties is never the responsibility of Wild Heart Tales. Damage must be reported to Wild Heart Tales in Writing immediately after it has arisen.

Parties are entitled to suspend the obligations under the Agreement for as long as the force majeure situation continues. If suspension cannot be required of one of the Parties, Parties may unanimously choose to terminate the Agreement. Services already performed must be paid for by Customer.
