The duration of the Agreement is determined in the Agreement itself.

SPYNE B.V. is permitted to terminate an Agreement in writing at any time with due observance of a notice period of one month. SPYNE B.V. is not obliged to pay any form of compensation and/or financial
compensation as a result of an (early) termination.

Each of the Parties shall have the right to terminate the Agreement, in whole or in part, with immediate effect, without observing a notice period, if the other Party goes bankrupt or is granted a suspension of payment to the other Party, as well as if the business of the other Party is dissolved or undergoes a liquidation.

If the Agreement is dissolved at any time and Services have already been performed at that time, the Services already performed and the associated payment obligation of the Client will not be subject to any undoing obligation, unless the Client can prove that SPYNE B.V. is in default with regard to specifically those Services.

If the Client is of the opinion that the amount of the invoice is incorrect, or that there is any other imperfection in the invoice, he must immediately inform SPYNE B.V. of this, with the presentation of convincing evidence of its position. If the content is not disputed within one month after receipt of the invoice, the right to dispute the content of that invoice expires.

Article 9. Liability
The liability of SPYNE B.V. is limited to compensation for direct damage regardless of the reason for the liability.

Direct damage is only understood to mean:
− Reasonable costs to prevent damage, as far as the Client can demonstrate that these expenses have led to a limitation of the direct damage within the meaning of the Agreement;
− Expenses reasonably incurred by the Client to determine the cause and extent of the damage, as far as the determination is related to direct damage within the meaning of the Agreement;
− Reasonably incurred costs that the Client must incur for the performance of SPYNE B.V. to comply with the Agreement.
