These video production Terms and Conditions are in relation to business and work carried out by Barry J Wale trading as Eternity Videos.
The purpose of these Terms and Conditions is to establish a contract between a client (referred to as the CUSTOMER) and Eternity Videos (referred to as the PRODUCER) when an ORDER is received from the CUSTOMER. An ORDER may be in written, verbal or electronic form. These conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
The PRODUCER agrees to supply the product(s) or service(s) to the CUSTOMER as detailed in the ORDER and according to the terms and conditions of this contract. All orders are on a first booked, first served basis, therefore, we recommend confirming bookings as soon as possible to meet your filming and editing timelines.
3. Rights Reserved
Should the PRODUCER choose not to enforce any or all of these conditions it should not be interpreted as a waiver of any of the PRODUCER’s rights. By providing the PRODUCER with an ORDER, the CUSTOMER accepts these terms and conditions.
The PRODUCER shall issue an invoice to the CUSTOMER in respect of products or services supplied, or to be supplied, the payment terms for which will be stipulated on the invoice. The product(s) shall remain with the PRODUCER until full payment has been received, unless otherwise stipulated in the ORDER. The PRODUCER reserves the right to charge interest on overdue amounts at an annual rate of 5% on the date payment is due until receipt.
