The end of this suspension period will take place on reception of the total amounts due by the Beneficiary, if the Service Provider has not, in the meantime terminated the Contract as mentioned in the Conditions of Article 6 of the General Conditions.
Art 7.2: Taxes and duties
The Beneficiary undertakes to pay within the required time, (i) all VAT, use, access rights, consumer taxes and any other taxes, contributions and licences which are incurred and payable to the administration under the use of Spaces (and to prove to the Service Provider, at his request, that these payments have been made) and (ii) all taxes paid by the Service Provider to all government authorities relating to the use of the building by the Beneficiary, in particular concerning all taxes or rates paid by the Service Provider and which in reality are owed by the Beneficiary, any contributions on the Beneficiary’s personal assets, stamp duties or other taxes and applicable fees.
Art 7.3: Installation costs
If the Beneficiary formulates specific needs linked to his installation or the evolution of his installation, the Service Provider will invoice the Beneficiary with any quoted fees that were subject to the Beneficiary’s agreement.

The Service Provider has reduced its impact on the environment and encourages its clients to adopt the same policy. It is for this reason, the Service Provider will send all its invoices electronically (respecting legal provisions) and the Beneficiary will carry out payments in an automatic manner by direct debit, bank transfer or credit card. It is noted that, as may be necessary, in accordance with the provisions of Article 1126 and following the Civil Code, the Beneficiary expressly agrees to the use of electronic mail for the communication of all information necessary and requested with a view to concluding the Contract or any information that is sent during its execution. The data recorded in the Service Provider’s information system constitutes proof of all transactions concluded with the Beneficiary.
All monies payable by the Beneficiary under this contract can, if they are not paid in full by the Beneficiary on leaving the Centre as defined in the Specific Conditions, be requested or recovered by other Centres in the NEXTDOOR / WOJO network in the case where the Beneficiary may want to contract elsewhere.
The Beneficiary will pay commission in the case of a returned cheque or any other form of refused payment for lack of funds. This commission fee is mentioned in the Tariff Guide.
Art 7.5: Revision
The Service Prices indicated in the Specific Conditions will be indexed every year. This indexation is valid for active contracts (for which the term has not expired) at the date of indexation.

Indexation is calculated using a percentage equal to the increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for “Service” activities or any other index which would be substituted in the Specific Conditions for legal reasons.
Indexation notification will be sent to the Beneficiary on the Contract anniversary date with automatic effect without the need for prior agreement from the Beneficiary. Considering the Service Providers recurring costs in running the building and the Centre, the Beneficiary will not benefit from an indexation reduction.
Art 7.6: Advance payment
In accordance with article 7.4 above, the Services and recurring services requested by the Beneficiary are payable in advance every month, every quarter or on payment deadline as provided for in the Specific Conditions. Otherwise, except for prior written agreement, these recurring services will be supplied by the Service Provider according specific tariffs for the duration of the present contract (including the case of renewal).

All à la carte Services will be subject to monthly invoicing payable by the Beneficiary as specified in Article 6 of the Specific Conditions.
Art 7.7: Services invoiced on the basis of effective use
Costs related to invoiced Services according to effective use (meeting rooms, printing…) and any other variable additional service invoiced according to consumption will include the applicable VAT rate.

The holding of such an insurance policy as described above does not remove the Service Provider from his responsibilities, in particular, concerning damages which are not covered by his insurance or damages where the amount exceeds the guaranteed capital.
It is stated that the Civil Responsibility of NEXTDOOR / WOJO is covered by the contract Allianz n° 46.240.400.
8.3: Revocation of proceedings

Within the context of the agreement between the Service Provider, the building owner and his insurers have waivered all claims against the Service Provider, all the Beneficiaries and their insurers concerning damages suffered in the building.
In the same way the Service Provider insures his own goods, fittings, equipment and furniture linked with running the Centre with the Policy n° Allianz n° 54.847.832.
Within this framework, the Service Provider and his insurers have decided to waiver any claims against the owner, all the Beneficiaries and their insurance companies.

The Service Provider cannot be held responsible for a breach of any sort of a user or member, and in particular, of the Beneficiary. The Beneficiary is answerable to all damages caused by himself, his associates or any other person who is in the Centre upon his express or implicit invitation, in particular agents or other persons present in the Centre due to a business relationship with the Partner.
The Service Provider declines all responsibility towards the Beneficiary due to loss or damage incurred by the Beneficiary, including without limitation, loss or alteration of clientele or profits, revenues, chances, data, shortfalls, loss of image, expenses, etc. during the present Contract, services provided and / or allocated Spaces.

Only damages having a direct link with the execution of the present Contract will constitute a ground for liability on the part of the Service Provider, with the understanding that the financial responsibility of the Service Provider cannot, in any way be superior to the total amount of monies paid by the Beneficiary and collected by the Service Provider in the framework of the present Contract and covering the period during which the aforementioned responsibility took place.
Furthermore, in the case of Service failure as provided for in the Specific Conditions of the Contract, the Beneficiary should inform the Service Provider in writing and grant him a reasonable delay which cannot be inferior to ten (10) calendar days so that the Service Provider can rectify them.
The Service Provider commits to trying to find a / or several substitute Spaces adapted to the Beneficiary within the Centre or in another NEXTDOOR / WOJO Centre.

The fees for additional services used by the Beneficiary up to this date or after the interruption will remain due in their entirety.
Art. 10: Security Deposit
The security deposit amount, where applicable, will be owed by the Beneficiary and fixed in the Specific Conditions.

Art. 11: Contract transferral
