If applicable, VAT and travel expenses will be added to the sub-total price on the day on which the order is placed.

The Provider has the right to modify its rates at any time. However, it undertakes to invoice the services at the respective indicated rates of the day of the work agreement: a work agreement sets up the conditions of the service provided (price, details if applicable, dates etc.). It can be established with e-mail exchanges between the Provider (maryloupetot@gmail.com) and the Client’s email addresses – these e-mails are therefore taken as a proof of work agreement –  or a quote established between the Provider and the Client before providing the service. If applicable, the Provider has the right to require the payment of a deposit before providing the service(s). The deposit corresponds to 20% of the total price of the service (without VAT or travel expenses), and will be deducted from the final price on the invoice.
