These general terms and conditions apply to all contracts with our customers for the delivery of food and drinks and the rental of crockery/furniture, etc. (= catering), regardless of the place of delivery (event room of the customer or a third party), as well as for the rental of event space. We deliver and rent exclusively on the basis of our general terms and conditions. Deviating conditions are only effective if they have been expressly agreed with us in writing in individual cases.
Prices, payments & terms pf payment
All prices are non-binding and are collection prices exclusive of statutory VAT. Unless separate individual agreements have been made, the most recent prices in our list apply. We are entitled to increase the price if the wages and costs underlying the agreed price increase and more than 4 months have elapsed since delivery to the customer. Invoices are payable within 7 days of receipt of the invoice without deduction. In the event of late payment, companies can be charged 8% default interest and consumers 5% default interest above the base rate (ECB). If an agreed advance payment has not been made, this can be handed over in the form of a cash check before the start of the event. If the advance payment is not made, the Geschmackslabor reserves the right not to provide the agreed service. If the service is not provided for this reason, the customer is not released from the obligation to pay. The customer informs the Geschmackslabor 5 days before the event of the final number of people, which is the basis for invoicing. If the number of participants deviates by more than 20%, the Geschmackslabor is entitled to reset the agreed prices. An extension of the service is possible up to the start of the event after consultation and confirmation by the Geschmackslabor.In the event of an upward deviation, the actual number of participants will be charged.
Of course, we make every effort to meet all agreed deadlines as precisely as possible. If we are not able to do this in individual cases, the customer grants us a tolerance of 60 minutes.
We will charge for the cancellation of orders that have already been placed (according to the cost estimate)
- 90 days before the agreed delivery date 25%,
- 45 days before the agreed delivery date 50%,
- 14 days before the agreed delivery date 75%,
- 7 days before the agreed delivery date 90%
of the order.
In the case of cancellations on the day of delivery, we reserve the right to charge up to 100% of the order value. If the service is in connection with the rental of an in-house event space, the Geschmackslabor reserves the right to charge the room rent according to the list price in the event of cancellation after the contract has been concluded (according to the cost estimate) if further rental is no longer possible.
If it has been agreed in text form that the customer can withdraw from the contract free of charge within a certain period of time, the Geschmackslabor is entitled to withdraw from the contract if there are inquiries from other customers about the contractually booked event rooms and the customer, upon inquiry by the Geschmackslabor, about his right to resignation not waived. If an agreed advance payment or security is not provided, the Geschmackslabor is entitled to withdraw from the contract.
Furthermore, the Geschmackslabor is entitled to extraordinarily withdraw from the contract for an objectively justifiable reason, for example if force majeure or other circumstances for which the Geschmackslabor is not responsible make it impossible to fulfill the contract; Events or rooms are booked culpably with misleading or false information about material contractual facts, e.g. about the customer or the purpose of the event; The Geschmackslabor has reasonable grounds to assume that the event could jeopardize the smooth running of business, the safety or the public reputation of the Geschmackslabor, without this being attributable to their area of control or organization; the purpose or reason for the event is illegal. Insofar as the Geschmackslabor is not the owner of an event space or the equipment brought in, the Geschmackslabor is not liable for the non-fulfillment of the contract, insofar as this is due to the circumstances of the person or company of the event space or equipment owner. In this case, the Geschmackslabor reserves the right to withdraw from the contract without being liable for damages.
Minor changes in our buffet and food offerings may occur due to seasonality or quality.
Transport costs & transfer of risk
The minimum transport price for deliveries of food, beverages and crockery/furniture is € 35.00 net in the Bremen city area. This includes 1 driver per transport in the delivery vehicle plus a maximum of 30 minutes of assembly time on site. Additional personnel or time expenditure will be charged separately; the prices in our most recent list apply here. If the customer is an entrepreneur and we ship the goods or other rental item outside of our company headquarters, liability passes to the customer as soon as we have handed over the goods to our staff, the courier, carrier or third parties for delivery.
Please check the goods upon arrival for any defects and report them to us immediately. If there are no complaints about the goods immediately after their arrival, the rental item is deemed to have been accepted in the event of obvious defects and is valid for full payment. The client is obligated to inform the respective project manager during the event of any defects or complaints resulting from the fulfillment of the cateringcontract so that he has the opportunity to rectify the defect during the event.
Liability for damages
Exhibition or other items, including personal items, are in the event rooms at the risk of the customer. The Geschmackslabor assumes no liability for loss, destruction or damage, including financial losses, except in the case of gross negligence or intent. We are only obliged to pay damages to the customer if we or our vicarious agents can be proven to have acted with intent or gross negligence in causing the damage. The above limitation of liability does not apply to liability in the event of culpable injury to life, limb or health of persons or in the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations. In the event of a breach of essential contractual obligations, our liability for damages in cases of simple negligence is limited to the typically, foreseeable damage. Of course, we cannot accept liability for damage caused by third parties. Decoration material brought along must meet the fire protection requirements. Due to possible damage, the installation and attachment of objects must be agreed in advance.
If the customer is an entrepreneur, he is liable for all damage to buildings or inventory caused by event participants or visitors, employees, other third parties in his area or himself. We expressly point out that every event inevitably leads to signs of wear and tear on the interior of the respective venue. Every event also involves certain risks for property and possessions in the form of damage and destruction by third parties (e.g. guests). Against this background, we would like to point out that for events on the customer's premises or event premises rented by the customer, the customer alone is obliged to take precautionary measures to reduce signs of wear and tear and to avoid damage to property and possessions (e.g. by using tarpaulins and the like. ). In the case of particularly sensitive interiors, the customer must inform us of this and, if necessary, remove the interior at our request or protect it separately.
Rental price, rental unit, delivery & return
All rental prices listed (regarding crockery, furniture, etc.) refer to a rental unit of three days, excluding Sundays and public holidays. The collection days (delivery and return) count as full days. If the customer uses the goods for more than one rental unit, we are entitled to charge a fee in full. The customer is obliged to return the rental item within the agreed rental unit. Otherwise, he must bear the replacement costs in full. If staff is hired, the minimum rental unit is 4 hours per staff deployment. After the 4 hours have elapsed, the actual duration of use is calculated. The timesheets (proof of the hours worked) of the hired staff must be signed by the customer after the end of the event.
The customer may not misuse the rental items and may only use them at the agreed event location. If the customer does not return the rented item or returns it damaged, he is obliged to pay compensation. Furthermore, the renter must bear the rent for the goods until the damaged item has been repaired or an appropriate replacement has been provided. Unless otherwise agreed, the customer is particularly obliged:
- to insure the rented item against all risks at his own expense
- to inform us immediately if the rented item is damaged/in need of repair
- to obtain all necessary official permits for the use of the rented property at his own expense.
We reserve the right to inspect all rental objects provided by us at any time, to take them back or to take necessary measures to maintain them if there is a risk of damage or loss.
Reservation of title
We reserve our ownership of all delivered goods and means of transport.
