Article 6.

In the event of non-payment of an invoice on its due date and without prior formal notice, the debtor acknowledges that he is bound to pay an indemnity fixed at 15% of the amount of the invoice due with a minimum of 150.00 € and interest at the rate fixed by the law of 02.08.2002 relating to the fight against late payments in commercial transactions.

We do not warrant that the operation of our services will be uninterrupted, error-free or secure. While we strive to make the Shyfter.co website available to you seven days a week, 24 hours a day, we reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to interrupt access to the site for technical or other reasons and to terminate our services, without being liable for such interruptions and for any consequences that may arise for you or for any third party.

Article 8.

In the event of a dispute, other than the collection of unpaid invoices, the parties agree to have prior recourse to mediation by appointing an approved mediator and to participate in two sessions of at least two hours in order to try to find an amicable solution.

Article 10.

The Contract Price may be automatically revised in accordance with the change in the consumer index, by application of the following formula: P = (P0 x S) / S0, where: – P represents the price excluding taxes after the revision. – P0 is the price excluding taxes at the date of renewal of the contract or at the date of the previous revision. – S is the value of the latest SYNTEC index published on the revision date. – S0 represents the value of the last SYNTEC index published on the date of the first invoice of the current year or on the date of the previous revision. In the event of the disappearance of the selected index, and in the absence of agreement on a new index within a period of two months, the parties attribute competence to the President of the Commercial Court of Brussels ruling in summary proceedings in order to define a new index which will be included in the revision formula.

However, it is expressly recognized that in case of modification of its prices SHYFTER will inform the Customer by e-mail (mailing) or other way of communication so that the Customer has all the necessary information to renew or stop the Contract.
