1.2 Dolphin Publications B.V. reserves the right to amend these general terms and conditions at any time. The amended terms and conditions shall automatically be effective for each user.

The User may only transfer his/her rights and obligations from the agreement with the prior written permission of Dolphin Publications B.V., which permission shall not be withheld on unreasonable grounds, Dolphin Publications B.V. being entitled to stipulate additional conditions.

1.7 The User guarantees the correctness and completeness of the information Dolphin Publications B.V. has based its offer on in whole or in part. The User shall always exercise the utmost care to ensure that the requirements to be met by Dolphin Publications B.V.'s performance are correct and complete. All data mentioned in drawings, images, websites, offers, advertising material, social media etc. are not binding for Dolphin Publications B.V. unless Dolphin Publications B.V. explicitly states otherwise in writing.

1.8 With regard to the services rendered by Dolphin Publications B.V. and the amounts owed by the User for them, the relevant documents and data from Dolphin Publications B.V.'s administration or systems provide full evidence, without prejudice to the User's right to provide proof to the contrary.

1.9 All prices and rates quoted or mentioned by Dolphin Publications B.V. are 'in euros' and exclusive of sales tax (VAT) and exclusive of any other government levies, as well as exclusive of administration, travel and accommodation costs, unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing.

1.10 All budgets and pre-calculations given by Dolphin Publications B.V. are indicative, unless Dolphin Publications B.V. states otherwise in writing. User cannot derive any rights from them.

The mere fact of exceeding a stated or indicated deadline shall not cause Dolphin Publications B.V. to be in default.
