10. Rights of use
Steve Bayard grants the client the exclusive right, unlimited in terms of space and time, to use the contractual websites. The granting of rights of use only becomes effective when the customer has paid the full contractually agreed remuneration to Steve Bayard.

The two contracting parties, as well as their employees and assistants, mutually undertake to maintain confidentiality. This obligation remains as long as there is a legitimate interest, even after the end of the contractual relationship. The two contractual partners are required to clarify all the circumstances that could influence the outcome of the work.

12. Deposit / Customer credit check
We ask a deposit of 200 € to all our customers before starting to work on their project. The deposit is payable from the first minute of the 2nd hour of consulting started. The first hour of consulting is offered free of charge to our customers to assess the amount of time to devote to their project. This deposit is not returned but will be deducted from the costs of the final invoice for the customer in the event of acceptance of the final invoice. The € 200 is mainly used to cover the costs of opening a client account and setting up their cloud on our secure servers. We apply this for new clients purchasing for a total amount until 2'500€ of value. From 2'500€ until 5'000€, the deposit will be of 500€. For projects with a cost over 5'000€, we request a minimum deposit of 30% before accepting new clients.

13. Final provisions
The exclusive place of jurisdiction for all disputes between Steve Bayard and the client is Berlin. The legal relationship of contractual partners is subject exclusively to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany, even if the customer is based abroad. If one of the above provisions is or becomes ineffective, the effectiveness of the other provisions remains unchanged. The parties already undertake to agree on an effective clause which replaces the ineffective clause, which comes as close as possible to the economic purpose and the intention of the invalid provision. The same applies if the provisions are incomplete.
