1. Placing of orders

Our deliveries and services are carried out exclusively on the basis of the following terms and conditions. The terms and conditions of our customers and contractors do not apply, even if we do not object to their validity separately. Our conditions also apply if we carry out the order without reservation in the knowledge of conflicting or deviating conditions of the customer.

2. Deliveries and services


2.1 Our deliveries and services are provided on the basis of the concept provided or approved by the customer and the written result of the last discussion before the start of the order.


2.2 We produce films and similar products according to the underlying concept in a quality that corresponds to the quality standards demonstrated by our samples. The same quality applies to our advice and support for marketing the resulting products via social media channels.


2.3 Only the information contained in the order confirmation and the offer is deemed to be the contractual quality. Guarantees are not accepted. With regard to the contractual conformity of the services, the focus should be on the objective public and not on the subjective views and tastes of the customer. If, after applying objective criteria, our service has been provided in accordance with the offer, order confirmation and binding instructions, the customer has no further claims for performance or rectification.

3. Content of Advertising Statements


3.1 The customer is solely responsible for the legal content of the advertising statements contained in the product. Our liability for claims for defects, which are asserted by third parties due to quality information or guarantees according to § 434 BGB against the customer because of the advertising statements, is expressly excluded. Before distributing the product, the customer is obliged to check the content for full compatibility of the product information contained therein with the nature of the advertised goods.


3.2 The risk of the legal admissibility of the advertising is borne by the customer. This applies in particular in the event that the advertising measure violates the provisions of competition law, copyright law and special advertising law. We will inform the customer of legal risks if we become aware of them during the preparation or execution of the order. Under no circumstances shall we be liable for the factual statements contained in the advertising about the customer's products and services or for the patent, model, copyright and trademark protection or registration of the ideas, suggestions, proposals, concepts, drafts provided under the contract etc. Insofar as third parties assert claims here, the customer must indemnify us against these claims.

4. Instructions and Changes


4.1 Requests for changes made by the customer before the start of production will be taken into account, provided the changes are reasonable and do not interfere with the artistic and technical design in such a way that we can carry them out without infringing on our legitimate interests. If additional costs arise due to change requests or instructions, we are entitled to stop production until the customer has agreed in writing to a reasonable increase in payment.


4.2 If we are entitled to reject requests for changes or instructions, or if an agreement on the increase in remuneration does not come about between the parties, the customer only has the right to ordinary termination of the contract for work in accordance with Section 649 BGB. The services rendered up to that point, including advance payments, are to be remunerated in accordance with the contract. Section 649 of the German Civil Code applies to services that have not yet been performed.

5. Delivery time


5.1 The time of delivery of rough drafts or performance of services is determined at the last meeting before the start of the order.


5.2 Specified deadlines are non-binding unless they are expressly confirmed by us in writing. Dates set by the calendar are only valid as fixed dates if they are expressly confirmed in writing as fixed dates.


5.3 Delays or exceeding of contractual deadlines due to change requests, instructions or other reasons for which the customer is responsible lead to a reasonable extension of the deadline. The customer is obliged to agree on a new delivery date, taking due account of the reason for the hindrance.


5.4 If the schedule is exceeded for reasons for which we are not responsible, the delivery period is extended by a reasonable period of time, but at least as long as the reason for the hindrance existed.


5.5 If we do not meet a submission or delivery date, the customer is initially obliged to set us a reasonable grace period.

6. Compensation


6.1 The agreed total price results from all items listed in the cost estimate that are required for the creation of the film or comparable products, as well as for the advice and support that are required for the realization according to the current situation.


6.2 If, in the case of productions outside the European Union, the costs to be borne in the respective national currency increase due to changes in the applicable exchange rate after the conclusion of the contract compared to the costs on which the calculation of the remuneration was based, we are entitled to increase the remuneration accordingly. We show the costs to be borne in the respective national currency in the order confirmation and the offer.


6.3 We will announce any additional costs incurred as a result of the customer's change requests. If we have failed to do this, additional costs can only be claimed up to an amount of 10% of the total costs. In addition, in the event of deviations from the approved concept and the resulting additional costs, we will inform the customer beforehand and obtain his approval.


6.4 The customer shall make the advertising objects to be displayed available at the production site free of charge and on time for the purpose of production. The professional processing of the items for the purpose of production is expressly permitted.


6.5 Actors, models, influencers and speakers are selected in consultation with the customer. If the customer wishes to employ certain actors, speakers or other contributors who, due to their outstanding position or for other reasons, demand higher than average fees, he must bear the additional costs incurred as a result.

7. Subsequent compensation claims from authors

The total price includes the costs specified in the cost estimate for the compensation of the rights of the authors (all contributors or filmmakers who were involved in the work and are subject to copyright contract law) only in the amount specified there. If higher remuneration claims are subsequently made by these persons, the customer, as the user of the work, undertakes to indemnify and hold us harmless from all claims by the filmmakers or contributors and to pay these additional remuneration claims directly to the beneficiaries.

9. Acceptance


9.1 Immediately after completion of the film or comparable products, we will send the customer a raw version or show it to him on his business premises. The customer is obliged to immediately submit a statement as to whether he accepts the film or the comparable product in the version produced as being in accordance with the contract. If the customer does not make a statement within 14 days, the product is considered to be in accordance with the contract.


9.2 Claims for defects for defects that are already recognizable during acceptance are excluded after acceptance has taken place. The customer is obliged to examine the product for defects immediately upon receipt and to notify us of these immediately. The provisions of § 377 HGB apply.

10. Claims for Defects


10.1 We will, at our discretion, rectify any defects identified upon acceptance within a reasonable period of grace by rectification or replacement delivery. The grace period is at least 10 working days. The rectification is only deemed to have failed after two unsuccessful attempts at rectification.


10.2 The customer agrees that other actors, other image and sound sequences, locations or props can also be selected by us after prior consultation with the customer for the purpose of rectification.

We will only refuse the corresponding extension or expansion of the right of use for important reasons. Any additional claims for compensation by the participants, filmmakers or other participants that arise as a result of this, which exist under copyright contract law, will be borne by the customer. He will indemnify and hold us harmless from all compensation claims of the authors involved, owners of related property rights and owners of other rights and will pay the authors' compensation claims directly to them.

Further default claims remain unaffected.
