These general terms and conditions apply to all services provided by B.F.S. SA (hereinafter "B.F.S.") to its clients. The present general terms and conditions are brought to the attention of clients, firstly, by their addition to the engagement letter, and secondly, by their insertion on the back of the invoices with a reference on the front of the invoices stating "general terms and conditions on the back". A copy of these general terms and conditions is also available on the company's website: www.BFS.be. Consequently, each time a client calls upon the services of B.F.S., it is deemed to have read these general terms and conditions and to accept them without reservation.
In accordance with general law, B.F.S. can only be held liable for assignments that it can be shown to have accepted.
In the absence of a clause to the contrary in the engagement letter, the agreement is concluded and takes effect:
- either when B.F.S. receives the engagement letter, signed by the client, and countersigns it in turn;
- or at the time when B.F.S. begins to carry out the assignment, at the client's request, when this execution begins at an earlier time.
If B.F.S. has not yet received the engagement letter signed by the client, all professional relations between the parties shall in all cases be subject to these general terms and conditions and to the engagement letter, provided that these contractual documents have been delivered to the client either by post, fax, e-mail or by hand against acknowledgement of receipt.
