DETAILS

How our Agreement works and should be interpreted

The Term Sheet, these Standard Terms and Conditions and the attached Schedules (which form part of these Standard Terms and Conditions) all form one contract (?the? or ?this? ?Agreement?) between the parties stated on the front of the Term Sheet.
In these Standard Terms and Conditions capitalised words and phrases shall unless the context requires otherwise have meanings set out in Schedule 1.
This Agreement may be amended from time to time by written agreement between the parties, which agreement may be in the form of e-mails but if in the form of e-mails must be approved by or authorised by the Commercial Director of dock10 or a board member of dock10, or with their express written authority in the case of dock10.
An obligation in this Agreement on a person not to do something includes an obligation not to agree, allow, permit or acquiesce in that thing being done.

When the Agreement Starts and Ends

The Agreement shall commence upon the Customer making a Booking which is accepted by the Studio countersigning and dating a Term Sheet signed by the Customer and shall continue thereafter unless terminated in accordance with clauses 5 (Cancellation) or 10 (Termination).

What dock10 Will Do for the Customer

The Customer engages dock10 to provide the Services on the terms and conditions of the Agreement.
Generally, the Customer will, on the face of the Term Sheet, have entered into a Booking for a mix of Services, comprising Facilities, Equipment and/or Staff or Crew. The relevant clauses of these Standard Terms and Conditions will apply to the relevant Services which are booked.
Where Services are delivered in relation to post production items or by third party contractors procured by dock10, dock10? obligation is to use reasonable endeavours in accordance with good industry practice to ensure that the providers have no history of general incompetence and are reputable in relation to the matters for which the services will be provided.

What the Customer Must Do for dock10

The Customer shall be bound to make payment as provided by the Agreement on acceptance of the Booking.
The Customer shall comply (and shall ensure that its employees and contractors shall comply) with all applicable laws and regulations including (without limitation) any such laws and regulations relating to the production of films and television programmes, sound recording and video recordings made in pursuance of any Act of Parliament, Statutory Instruments or by any local or other authority or council and with all applicable codes of practice and procedures notified by dock10 including those relating to fire, security, health and safety, animals, livestock, children, and the storage and use of guns, explosives and other flammable and/or toxic substances.
The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the Services hired are suitable for the Customer?s purposes. The Customer shall only use the Services for the creation and recording of audio visual material, or any other purpose agreed in writing by the parties.
The Customer shall ensure that its employees and contractors observe (and where relevant perform in accordance with) the terms of Schedule 2.
The Customer is responsible for procuring that all of its employees and contractors fully comply with the terms and conditions upon which dock10 contracts with third parties for the provision of equipment, materials and personnel. dock10 shall provide the Customer with a copy of those terms and conditions for information and reference upon request. For the avoidance of doubt the terms and conditions of such third parties are deemed to be incorporated into the Agreement and the Customer will indemnify dock10 and hold it harmless in respect of any loss or damage incurred or suffered by dock10 arising out of or in connection with a breach by the Customer or its employees or contractors of the obligations in this clause.
Not less than 14 days before commencement of the Hire Period, the Customer shall provide a health and safety assessment and method statement in relation to the utilisation of any Facilities, all Equipment and any Staff or Crew. This will need to be approved by dock10 (which will not unreasonable withhold or delay approval) prior to commencement of the Hire Period. dock10 will be reasonable when assessing any health and safety assessment or method statement, but the Customer may only access the Facilities or any relevant parts of the Equipment, or have use and access to the Staff or Crew, once such approval has been obtained. If approval is given to Risk Assessments of method statements this does not remove any responsibility from the Customer to comply or ensure compliance with all relevant legislation and does not imply the acceptance of any liability by dock10.

Cancellation of the Agreement

The Customer is free to cancel the Booking prior to commencement of the Hire Period by giving written notice of cancellation to dock10. If the Customer so cancels the Booking:
if a Deposit has been paid, the Deposit shall, unless dock10 agrees otherwise, be retained by the Studios;
if cancellation is more than six months prior to commencement of the Hire Period the Customer shall not be liable to make payment (subject to clause 5.1.1);
if cancellation is less than 6 months prior to commencement of the Hire Period but more than 3 months prior to commencement of the Hire Period, 25 per cent of the Contract Price will be payable, unless dock10 agrees otherwise;
if cancellation is less than 3 months prior to commencement of the Hire Period but more than 30 days prior to commencement of the Hire Period, 50 per cent of the Contract Price will be payable, unless dock10 agrees otherwise;
if cancellation is less than 30 days prior to commencement of the Hire Period but more than 7 days prior to commencement of the Hire Period, 75 per cent of the Contract Price will be payable, unless dock10 agrees otherwise;
If cancellation is less than 7 days prior to commencement of or is during the Hire Period, the Customer shall be liable to pay the full amount of the Contract Price (but subject to clause 5.2).
In the event that the Customer cancels, but is liable to pay the full amount of the Contract Price, dock10 will use reasonable endeavours to find alternate customers for the Hire Period and/or otherwise mitigate the loss to dock10 arising from the cancellation. To the extent that dock10 is successful in mitigating its loss, credit will be given to the Customer and the consequent charges payable by the Customer shall either be reduced or (if already paid) refunded, less the costs of such mitigating activity.
The Customer shall be liable for any money spent or contracted to be spent by the Studios over and above the Contract Price in relation to the Booking prior to receipt of any notice of cancellation, including all reasonable out of pocket expenses in connection with travel, border crossings, customs clearances, subsistence and any additional charges incurred.

Limitations on the Parties' Liability

Nothing in the Agreement shall limit or be deemed to limit either party?s liability for death or personal injury arising from its negligence or that of its agents, employees or sub-contractors (provided that dock10 shall not be liable for the acts or omissions of its agents, employees or sub-contractors if they are acting under the control or direction of the Customer at the time of the relevant act or omission).
dock10 shall only be liable to the Customer for the direct costs of production in respect of any claim arising from its act or omission and shall not be liable to the Customer or to any third party in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise for direct or indirect loss of opportunity, profits, revenues, business, or anticipated business or savings, nor for any indirect or consequential loss or damage howsoever caused.
dock10 shall not be liable to the Customer for any direct or indirect loss or damage suffered by the Customer as a result of an act or omission of any third parties within the Common Areas.
Except as specifically included within the Agreement, all representations (including misrepresentations), warranties, terms, conditions or other arrangements (whether implied by law, custom or otherwise) are excluded from the Agreement to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Agreement contains the entire agreement between the parties in relation to its subject matter.
Save to the extent expressly stated in the Agreement to the contrary, any hiring or Services provision under the Agreement is at the Customer?s own risk entirely, and dock10 shall not in any circumstances accept or be responsible for any liability for any loss, damage, claim or cost in relation to any equipment, recording media, storage media, data, documents, personal belongings and/or other property or items belonging to the Customer and/or its employees, contractors or agents or any third party which is deposited at or left in any Facility provided by or on behalf of dock10.
Subject to clause 6.1 dock10? entire aggregate total maximum liability to the Customer under this Agreement shall be limited to the total aggregate Contract Price 9including any Additional Charges) in the case of any and all events and/or any connected or series of events.
Nothing in this clause 6 shall operate to reduce or negate dock10? liability in respect of fraud, or any personal injury caused by negligence of dock10, or otherwise where and to the extent that such reduction or negation is prohibited or restricted by law.

Customer's Responsibility

The Customer will indemnify and keep dock10 indemnified from and hold dock10 harmless against all costs, losses, actions, proceedings, claims or demands made against or suffered or incurred by dock10 arising out of or in connection with:
any claim, action, proceeding or demand brought by a third party as a result of the Customer?s use of any facilities and/or Common Areas (except arising as a result of the Studio?s own negligence or default); or

The insurance to be effected by the Customer shall be primary insurance, and in the event of any claim dock10? insurance shall not primarily contribute to or be liable for such claim. All monies received under the Customer?s policy of insurance shall be paid directly to dock10. The Customer shall provide to dock10 evidence of such insurance, not less than 14 days prior to commencement of the Hire Period.
The Customer shall arrange and maintain in force throughout the period of this agreement Public Liability Insurance with an indemnity limit of at least ten million pounds in respect of any one claim or incident and shall, on request, produce evidence of such insurance to dock10.
In the event that the Customer does not comply with this clause, the Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless dock10 against any loss, damage, cost or claim in respect of its failure to provide such cover and/or as a result of such cover not being available. In addition dock10 shall be entitled to effect and maintain appropriate insurance cover on behalf of the Customer and the Customer shall be liable to reimburse dock10 the full cost of such cover and any deductible or excess payable under it (should such deductible or excess become so payable).

Force Majeure

Neither party shall be liable to the other party for any complete or partial inabilities to perform its obligations under the agreement as a result of any matter that is reasonably outside the control of that party (?Force Majeure Event?).
Each of the parties shall use reasonable endeavours to mitigate the effects of any Force Majeure Event.
If any Force Majeure Event continues for a period of ten or more working days the unaffected party shall have the right at any time to give notice to the other party of immediate termination of the Agreement and upon such termination all further obligations of each party to the other shall cease and, if the Customer is the unaffected party, it shall have no obligation to make further payment to dock10 other than in respect of sums accrued prior to such termination (which for the avoidance of doubt shall accrue at the normal contract rate up to that point).

Termination

In addition to any rights to cancel under clause 5 or terminate under clause 9, either party may terminate the Agreement immediately on notice in writing to the other if:
the other party fails to perform or observe to any material extent any material term of the Agreement (including, without limitation, any breach of clause 4); or
the other party fails to remedy any breach of the Agreement which is remediable within 7 days of receiving written notice of such breach from the party which is not in default; or
any step, application, order, proceeding or appointment is taken or made by or in respect of the other for any composition with creditors, moratorium or arrangement with creditors, winding up, administration, dissolution, receivership, administrative receivership or bankruptcy which is not discharged within twenty one days of being taken or made; or
the other party is or becomes unable to pay its debts as they fall due.
Termination or expiry of the Agreement (whether under this clause 10 or any other clause) is without prejudice to any accrued rights of the parties at the date of termination or expiry and shall not affect any provision of the Agreement which is expressly or by implication intended to come into force or remain in effect on or after termination or expiry.
On termination of the Agreement all sums which have not been paid to dock10 but which would otherwise have accrued as being due to dock10 as at the date of such termination shall immediately become due and payable to dock10 on the date termination takes effect. On the date that termination takes effect the Customer shall return to dock10 any of dock10? materials, goods or other possessions or property that it has in its possession, power or control.

The other party shall have the right, in the event that such employees are found to have transferred to it, within three months of the date of discovery of such transfer, to serve notice upon the transferring employees terminating their employment, in which case the original employer shall bear all associated costs and liabilities on request by the other party.
