N. Changes to this privacy policy
In the event of a change in data protection requirements, we reserve the right to change the privacy policy as required.


General terms and conditions of the agency

1. Validity, conclusion of contract
1.1 Claudia Gilhofer | gil-com e.U. (herinafter ”agency”) provides its services exclusively on the basis of the following General Terms and Conditions (GTC). These apply to all legal relationships between the agency and the customer, even if not expressly referred to.
1.2 The relevant version at the time of the conclusion of the contract is decisive. Deviations from these and other supplementary agreements with the customer are only effective if they are confirmed in writing by the agency.
1.3 Any terms and conditions of the customer are not accepted, even if they are known, unless otherwise agreed in individual cases and in writing. GTC of the customer contradicts the agency expressly. A further objection to the customer's terms and conditions by the agency is not required.
1.4 Changes to the terms and conditions shall be notified to the customer and shall be deemed agreed if the customer does not object to the changed terms and conditions in writing within 14 days; The customer is expressly adviced of the importance of silence in the communication.
1.5 Should individual provisions of these General Terms and Conditions be ineffective, this shall not affect the liability of the remaining provisions and the contracts concluded on their basis. The ineffective provision shall be replaced by an effective one which comes closest to the purpose.
1.6 The offers of the agency are non-binding.

2. Social media channels
The agency expressly points out to the customer prior to placing the order that the providers of ”social media channel” (eg facebook, in the following for short: providers) reserve the right to reject advertisements and appearances for any reason in their terms of use or to remove. The providers are therefore not obligated to forward content and information to the users. Therefore, there is a risk that the agency can not calculate that advertisements and advertising presences will be removed for no reason. In the case of a complaint form another user, although the providers have the option of a counter-notification, an immediate removal of the content takes place in this case as well. The recovery of the original, legitimate condition may take some time in this case. The agency works on the basis of these terms of use of the provider, over which it has no influence, and also bases this on an order of the customer. By placing an order, the customer expressly acknowledges that these terms of use (co-)determine the rights and obligations of any contractual relationship. The agency intends to execute the client's order to the best of its knowledge and belief and to comply with the guidelines of „social media channels”. However, the commissioned campaign will also be available at any time due to the current terms of use and the simple possibility of each user to assert infringements and thus to remove the content.

3. Protection of concept and idea
If the potential customer has already invited the agency in advance to come up with a concept, and if the agency complies with this invitation before the conclusion of the main contract, the following provision applies:

3.1 Already by the invitation and the acceptance of the invitation by the agency, the potential customer and the agency enter into a contractual relationship (”pitching contract”). This contract is also based on the terms and conditions.
3.2 The potential customer acknowledges that the agency already provides cost-intensive intermediate services when the concept is drafted, even though it has not yet undertaken any performance obligations.
3.3 The concept is subject to the protection of copyright law in its linguistic and graphic parts, as far as this work height is concerned. The use and processing of these parts without the consent of the agency is not permitted to potential customers under copyright law.
3.4 The concept also contains advertising-relevant ideas that do not reach a work height and therefore do not savor the protection of copyright law. These ideas are at the beginning of every creative process and can be defined as the spark that infectious everything later on and thus as the origin of a marketing strategy. Therefore, those elements of the concept are protected that are peculiar and that give the marketing strategy its distinctive character. For the purposes of this agreement, advertising slogans, advertising copy, graphics and illustrations, advertising material, etc. are considered as an idea, even if they do not reach a factory height.
3.5 The potential customer is beholden, to omit not to exploit or commercialize any of the agencies creative ideas and concept within the framework of the concept of a major contract to be concluded later.
3.6 If the potential customer feels that the agency has presented ideas, that he has already come across prior to the presentation, he will notify the agency within 14 days of the date of the presentation via e-mail with evidence that allow a temporal assignment.
3.7 In the opposite case, the parties assume that the agency has presented the potential customer with a new idea. If the idea is used by the customer, then it can be assumed that the agency became meritorious.
3.8 The potential customer may waive his obligations under this point by paying an appropriate compensation plus 20% VAT. The exemption does not occur until full receipt of payment of the compensation to the agency.

4. Scope of services, order processing and cooperation obligations of the customer
4.1 The scope of the services to be provided results from the terms of reference in the agency contract or any order confirmation by the agency, as well as the possible briefing protocol („offer documents”). Subsequent changes to the service content requires the written confirmation of the agency. Within the framework specified by the customer, there is freedom of the agency to fulfill the order.
4.2 All services of the agency (in particular all preliminary drafts, sketches, final artworks, brush prints, blueprints, copies, color prints and electronic files) are to be checked by the customer and released by him within three working days  from receipt by the customer. If not approved in time, they are considered approved by the customer.
4.3 The client shall provide the agency in a timely and complete manner with all information and documents necessary for the provision of the service. He will inform you of all circumstances that are important for the execution of the order, even if they become known only during the execution of the order. The customer shall bear the expense arising from the fact that work due to its incorrect, incomplete or subsequently changed information must be repeated by the agency or are getting delayed.
4.4 Furthermore, the customer is obligated to check the documents provided for the execution of the order (photos, logos, etc.) for any copyright, trademark rights or other rights of third parties (rights clearing) and guarantees that the documents are free of rights third parties and therefore can be used for the intended purpose. In case of mere negligence or fulfillment of its obligation to warn – at least in the internal relationship with the customer – the agency is not liable for infringement of such third-party rights through documents made available. If the agency is claimed by a third party for such an infringement, the customer shall indemnify and hold the agency harmless; he has to compensate her for all the disadvantages caused by third-party claims, in particular the costs of adequate legal representation. The customer undertakes to assist the agency in warding off any claims of third parties. The customer will provide the agency with all documents without being requested to do so.

5. External services / commissioning of third parties
5.1 The agency is entitled, at its own discretion, to carry out the service itself, to use knowledgeable third parties a vicarious agents in the provision of contractual services and / or to substitute such services (”external service”).
5.2 The commissioning of third parties as part of a third-party service takes place either in the customer's own name or on behalf of the customer. The agency will carefully select this third party and ensure that it has the required professional qualifications.
5.3 Insofar as the agency commissions necessary or agreed third-party services, the respective contractors are not vicarious agents of the agency.
5.3 The customer must enter into obligations to third parties that extend beyond the terms of the contract. This also applies in the case of a termination of the agency contract for good cause.

6. Appointments
6.1 Specified delivery or service periods are, unless expressly agreed as binding, only as approximate and non-binding. Binding appointments must be recorded in writing or confirmed by the agency in writing.
6.2 If the delivery / service of the agency is delayed for reasons for which it is not responsible, e.g. events of force majeure and other unforeseeable events that can not be prevented by reasonable means shall suspend the performance obligations for the duration and scope of the obstacle and extend the time limits accordingly. If such delays continue for more than two month, the customer and the agency are entitled to withdraw from the contract.
6.3 If the agency is in default, the customer can withdraw from the contract only after he has set the agency in writing a reasonable grace period of at least 14 days and this has passed without success. Claims for damages of the customer due to non-performance or default are excluded, except in case of intent or gross negligence.

7. Premature termination
7.1 The agency is entitled to terminate the contract with immediate effect for important reasons. An important reason exists in particular if
a) performance of the service is rendered impossible for reasons for which the customer is responsible or is delayed further, despite setting a grace period of 14 days;
b) the customer contravened continuously, despite a written warning with a grace period of 14 days, against material obligations under this contract, such as payment of a sum due or obligation to cooperate;
c) there are legitimate concerns about the creditworthiness of the client and the latter does not make any advance payments at the request of the agency, nor does it provide adequate security before the agency has provided its services.
7.2 The customer is entitled to terminate the contract for important reasons without granting a grace period. An important reason exists in particular if the agency, despite a written warning with a reasonable grace period of at least 14 days to remedy the breach of contract, violates essential provisions of this contract. 

8. Fee
8.1 Unless otherwise agreed, the agency's fee for each individual service arises as soon as it has been rendered. The agency is entitled to demand advances to cover its expenses. From an order volume with an (annual) budget of € 5.000,-, or such, which extend over a longer period of time, the agency is entitled to create interim billing or advance invoices or to call up payments on account.
8.2 The fee is understood as a net fee plus value added tax at the statutory rate. In the absence of an agreement in individual cases, the agency is entitled to a fee in the usual market amount for the services provided and for the granting of the copyright and trademark rights of use.
8.3 All services of the agency, which are not expressly compensated by the agreed fee, will be paid separately. All expenses incurred by the agency are to be reimbursed by the customer. 
8.4 Quotations from the agency are not binding. If it can be foreseen that the actual costs will exceed those estimated by the agency in writing by more that 15%, the agency will inform the customer of the higher costs. The cost overrun is deemed to have been approved by the customer if the customer does not object in writing within three working days of this notice and at the same time announces cheaper alternatives. If it is a cost overrun of up to 15%, a seperate communication is not required. This cost estimate overrun is considered by the client from the outset as approved.
8.5 For all work of the agency, which for whatever reason is not carried out by the customer, the agency deserves the agreed fee. The crediting provision of § 1168 ABGB is excluded. By paying the fee, the customer acquires no rights of use for work already performed; non-executed concepts, drafts and other documents must be returned to the agency without delay. 

9. Payment, title retention
9.1 The fee is payable immediately upon receipt of the invoice and without deductions unless special terms of payment have been agreed in writing in individual cases. This also applies to the recharging of all cash expenses and other expenses. The goods delivered by the agency remain the property of the agency until full payment of the fee, including any ancillary liabilities.
9.2 In case of late payment by the customer, the statutory default interest shall apply in the amount applicable to business transactions. Furthermore, in the event of default of payment, the customer undertakes to reimburse the agency for the resulting dunning and collection charges, insofar as the are necessary for the purpose of legal prosecution. In any case, this includes the costs of two prompt notes letters amounting to at present € 20,- per reminder as well as a reminder letter from a lawyer commissioned with the debt collection.
9.3 In the event of late payment by the customer, the agency may immediately forfeit all services and partial services provided under other contracts concluded with the customer.
9.4 Furthermore, the agency is not obligated to provide further services until the amount due has been paid (right of retention). The obligation to pay remuneration remains unaffected.
9.5 If payment has been agreed in installments, the agency reserves the right, in the event of late payment of partial amounts or secondary claims, to demand immediate payment of all outstanding dept (loan default).

10. Property right and copyright
10.1 All services to the agency, including those from presentations (eg suggestions, ideas, sketches, preliminary drafts, scribbles, final artworks, concepts, negatives, slides), even individual parts thereof, as well as the individual workpieces and design originals remain the property of the agency and can be reclaimed by the agency at any time, in particular at the termination of the contractual relationship. By paying the fee, the customer acquires the right of use for the agreed purpose. Unless otherwise agreed, the customer may only use the service of the agency in Austria.
