The GTC are available on the Website for consultation, downloading and printing for the Customers’ record or any other party. The GTC can be requested by email at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
ARTICLE 3: FORMATION OF THE AGREEMENT
The Agreement between TPF and its Customer is formed once the Customer has signed up for TPF’s Service by accepting its quotation, by email or in writing. The GTC are a fully integrated part of this Agreement.
ARTICLE 4: SERVICES
TPF’s purpose is to organise parties for children and grown-ups, such as birthday parties, baby showers, etc, with different packages and options.
ARTICLE 5: TERM AND TERMINATION
The term of the Agreement is specified on the quotation.
In case of non-performance under the GTC or the Agreement, the complaining Party shall request in writing from the non-performing Party compliance with its obligations under the GTC and the Agreement. In case of inaction from the non-performing Party within 7 (seven) calendar days, the complaining Party shall be entitled to terminate the Agreement by written and with a 20 (twenty) calendar days’ notice period, without prejudice of Article 7 of the GTC and without prejudice of any further liabilities.
ARTICLE 6: PRICES
The prices of the Services are stated on the quotation submitted by TPF. TPF’s expenses if any, including travel expenses, will be stated in the quotation.
The prices of the Services are always exclusive of any taxes, such as but not limited to the applicable VAT. Prices including taxes may be mentioned, on an indicative basis only.
Unless otherwise specified, a quotation is valid for 14 (fourteen) calendar days from its date. If a quotation consists of different parts, it does not bind TPF to perform just one part or parts of the quotation for the amount stated for such part(s).
The quotation depends on the specific package chosen by the Customer. If it happens that the Customer wants to add Services along, then, depending on feasibility, this should be subject to another quotation including the new Services and new prices accordingly, due to the additional costs incurred therefore.
The prices depend in particular but not exclusively on the number of attendees to a party. If this number decreases 10 (ten) calendar days before the day of the party, then only in this case TPF may make an adjustment accordingly. If this number increases though, whether it is foreseen before or unexpected on the day of the party itself, then the Customer shall pay TPF for the additional costs incurred.
ARTICLE 7: PAYMENT
The price of the Service is payable as follows:
– 60 (sixty) % of the total amount including taxes within 5 (five) calendar days of the quotation’s approval by the Customer,
– and the remaining 40 (forty) % of the total amount including taxes at least 5 (five) calendar days prior to the day of the party.
Any additional costs according to Article 6 of the GTC shall be paid by the Customer within 5 (five) calendar days of the date of the new quotation’s approval by the Customer, or on the day of the party itself in case of unexpected additional costs, including the case of increase of the number of attendees to the party.
A final detailed invoice including any additional costs shall be handed to the Customer on the day of the party.
TPF is entitled to withhold the performance of the Services under the Agreement until the payment has not been made according to this Article 7 of the GTC. In particular, if the second payment mentioned above has not been received by TPF, TPF is entitled to not execute the Services on the day agreed between the Parties for the party and the Customer agrees and undertakes that the party may not take place in that case, without any liability of TPF.
Moreover, if the Customer fails to pay on time for the Services, TPF reserves the right to charge statutory interest compounded to the extent allowed by the applicable law under Article 22 of the GTC.
ARTICLE 8: SUPERVISION
The Customer expressly agrees and undertakes that the children attending a party are not under the supervision and guardianship of TPF. It is therefore up to the Customer to take all necessary precautions to have all the children properly supervised, including special needs’ children (see article 9 of the GTC).
ARTICLE 9: SPECIAL NEEDS’ CHILDREN
The Customer shall notify TPF in writing in case special needs’ children are attending the party, when accepting the quotation.

TPF shall bear no responsibility whatsoever for this third party.
ARTICLE 11: PARTNERS

TPF shall inform the Customer of such use. To the extent allowed by the applicable law according to Article 22 of the GTC, in case of damage caused by this Partner to the Customer, the Customer expressly undertakes and agrees to hold TPF harmless from any liability.
ARTICLE 12: PROPERTY
The styling materials (such as decors, decorations, etc., except for fresh flowers) that TPF makes available during the party remains the full property of TPF or any other third party involved, and shall be returned undamaged to TPF. If not, the Customer shall be liable to compensate TPF for their replacement value.
TPF retains any right, including intellectual property rights, with regards to, in their broadest sense, ideas, concepts, designs, inventions, brands, products, games, texts, pictures, etc. developed by TPF, whether under the Agreement or not. The Customer is not allowed, whether directly or indirectly, to duplicate, make public or exploit them in any way.
