These are our Standard Terms & Conditions where no signed contract exists otherwise the Terms & Conditions will be part of the contract document and may be different. (Separate Terms apply for Wedding Videos and these are below the Standard Terms).
A contract is formed between a customer (referred to as the “Customer”) and Performance Services (referred to as the “Company”) when an Order is received from the Customer. An Order may be in written, verbal or electronic form. The Product or Service shall mean any product or service that is provided by the Company to the Customer. These conditions do not affect your statutory rights.
The Company agrees to supply the product(s) or service(s) to the Customer as detailed in the Order and according to the terms and conditions of this contract.
3) Rights reserved
Should the Company choose not to enforce any or all of these conditions it should not be interpreted as a waiver of any of the Company’s rights. By providing the Company with an Order, the Customer accepts these terms and conditions.
The Company shall issue an invoice to the Customer in respect of products or services supplied, or to be supplied, the payment terms for which will be stipulated on the invoice. The Company reserves the right to charge interest on overdue amounts at an annual rate of 5% above the Lloyds TSB Bank base rate ruling on the date payment is due.

7/ Booking Fee/Cancellation
Monies paid by the Customer to reserve the product(s) or service(s) of the Company will be accepted as a Booking Fee. If the Customer cancels the order less than 8-weeks prior to the Company supplying the product(s) or service(s), the Customer will be liable for the whole invoice value less any Booking Fee already paid. If the Customer cancels their Order more than 8-weeks prior to the Company supplying the product(s) or service(s), they shall forfeit the Booking Fee.
The Company accepts no liability for any loss or damage that may arise from the supply of the product(s) or service(s). In the unlikely event of the Company being unable to supply the product(s) or service(s) as specified in the Order, liability shall be limited to the total invoice value – or monies already paid by the Customer.
Unless otherwise stated in the Order, the Company retains copyright in all their Original Material. Original Material includes video recordings, graphics, soundtracks, printed material and any other design or artwork commissioned by the Customer in relation to the Order. The Customer must ensure that permission is sought for the inclusion of any copyright material they supply to the Company to enable them to deliver the product(s) or service(s). The Customer must also ensure that permission is sought for the inclusion of any performers or performances, trademarks and locations. The Company retains the right to use this material in its original and edited form as they see fit, unless otherwise agreed in the Order. The Customer agrees to indemnify the Company in the event of any breach of copyright claims being brought against the Company in respect of material supplied by the Customer.
10/ Data Protection
The Customer must ensure that all necessary arrangements have been made with, and permissions obtained from, people and places that may be recorded on video as a result of the Company supplying the product(s) or service(s) – and that such recording is in compliance with Data Protection.
11/ Care and Damage to client property
Whilst every care is taken in the handling of the Customer’s property, the Company accepts no responsibility whatsoever for any loss or damage, howsoever caused, or any other loss by unforeseen circumstances whilst they are in the custody of the Company. Liability for such loss or damage will be limited to the replacement cost of the materials or media and in no circumstances will any liability attach to any claim for the value of the content.
12/ Right of Assignment
The Company retains the right to assign the supply of the product(s) or service(s) to the Customer to another suitable company should they be unable to complete these terms and conditions.
The Company retains the right to charge out-of-pocket expenses incurred in providing the product(s) or service(s) – subject to being able to provide the Customer with proof of expenditure. All out-of-pocket expenses will be charged at cost.
Unless otherwise agreed the Company will treat any information gained during the supply of the product(s) or service(s) as being private and confidential. Likewise, the Customer shall keep confidential any methodologies and technology used by the Company to supply of the product(s) or service(s).
15/ Basis of law
These Terms and Conditions and any accompanying letter and/or contract are governed by the laws of the United Kingdom.
The normal Terms & Conditions for Wedding Videos are below for information (Actual Terms & Conditions may vary & will form part of the signed contract).
1.1 Bookings are accepted on these terms and conditions only. No condition may be added, omitted or altered
unless we have agreed it in writing with you.
1.2 Any addition omission or alteration that we may agree does not affect any other term or condition.
1.3 When you sign the booking form, you will be deemed to have read and accepted these terms and conditions
1.4 You specifically confirm to us that the information that you have provided in the booking form (and any other
forms) is true and accurate in all respects
2.1 Once a booking has been accepted you must immediately pay the booking fee that we have agreed. Until we
have received the booking fee (and if by cheque, that cheque has cleared) we are under no obligation to carry
out any of our obligations. Please note that this contract remains in force even if you have not paid the
booking fee and we shall be entitled to enforce it.
2.2 You must pay us the balance of the Price (shown on the booking form) in full (and if by cheque that cheque
has cleared) at least 14 days before the date when the Event is to take place. If you do not do so we will
not have any liability to you, and if we so decide we shall be entitled in our absolute discretion to forfeit
the whole or part of the booking fee.
2.3 If you cancel this booking:
(1) more than 90 days before the date of the event then the booking fee will be forfeited, but no further
sum is payable by you;
(2) within 90 days of the date of the event a sum amounting to 50 per cent of the Price is payable by you;
(3) within 30 days of the date of the event a sum amounting to 95 per cent of the Price is payable by you.
2.4 Any cancellation must be notified to us in writing addressed to us at the address shown in the booking form.
2.5 The Price is based on a recording time not exceeding 3 hours in length. An extra charge is payable in the event
of recording time running over 3 hours for whatever reason
2.6 Interest will be charged on late payments at the rate of 2% per calendar month or part month on any
Restrictions on our liability to you. (Please note this section is important and should be carefully
read by you since it limits your rights. Please ask us if you need any further clarification).
3.1 We will make every reasonable effort to secure a replacement cameraman if for any reason the cameraman
is unable to carry out the engagement. In those circumstances however, our liability to you is limited to
making a refund of the sums that you have paid us in respect of the booking. We will be entitled to deduct
any out of pocket expenses that we have reasonably incurred or paid to a third party.
3.2 Although we make every reasonable effort to ensure that all the equipment we use for your Event is in sound
working order, if a problem with the equipment should arise our liability to you is limited to making a refund of
the sums that you have paid us in respect of the booking. We will be entitled to deduct any out of pocket
expenses that we have reasonably incurred or paid to a third party. In the event of a part of the Event being
recorded we will in that case return a fair proportion of the Price.
3.3 Although we will use every reasonable effort to record significant parts of the Event (including any part of the
ceremony) the decision as to what is comprised in the recording is in our absolute discretion. We can give no
assurance that we will successfully record any particular aspect of the Event (even though you may have
asked us to do so), and any failure by us to capture any particular aspect of the Event or failure does not
give you any right to refuse to pay the Price or obtain a refund.
3.4 When you enter into this booking you accept that we cannot accept any liability whether it is a financial or
any other kind of loss, which arises either as a direct result or as an indirect result or as a consequence of
any failure by us of our obligations to you in this booking except for our obligation to return all or part of
any sums that you have paid to us in accordance with these conditions.
3.5 We do not exclude our liability to you for any death or personal injury or damage to property that may have
been caused by our negligence or that of any our employees.
3.6 We will carry out services with all reasonable care and skill. You accept that any other warranty or legal
obligation on our part or placed on us by any legislation (such as the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982
and the Sale of Goods Act 1993) or arising under common law is excluded in so far as it possible to do so.
3.7 Although these exclusions or limitations may appear to be comprehensive you agree that it is fair and
reasonable for us to limit our liability.
This is because if we were to accept additional liability we would need to insure against that liability or loss
which will then increase our prices.
You accept that you understand this and agree that it is reasonable to us to limit our liability in this way.
Ownership of the Master Tape and copyright
4.1 The master tape remains our property. Copyright in the master tape is vested in us. This means that:
(1) we reserve the right to dispose of the master tape in our absolute discretion.
(2) we do not accept liability in relation to any loss of and/or damage to the master tape.
(3) neither you nor any one on your behalf are allowed to make any copies of any tapes, discs or other

or discs without our consent is a breach of copyright for which you may be liable in damages

any prospective client who may wish to see a sample of our work, or to enter the disc into competitions or
use extracts in our show reel. We will not however release any part of your video for
broadcast without your prior written consent.
4.4 We confirm that we will comply with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 as it relates to your

Event that all persons attending the Event have consented to being recorded.

to additional payments which we will agree with you. Those extra services will, if accepted by us, be carried out
on the basis of these terms and conditions

where the Event is being held and all other persons involved in the Event, such as any person conducting
the ceremony, the choir organist and other musicians to record the Event before it takes place and to pay
any fees charged by them. If you fail to do so, this may mean that we are unable to record the ceremony
or the Event or release the DVD to you until that consent (which is required for copyright reasons) has
Schedule and Quality Control
7.1 We will try to agree a schedule of contents of the recording with you. Please note that the contents of
that schedule does not form part of our agreement with you.
7.2 We will assume that you accept the quality of the finished DVD unless you tell us to the contrary in writing
within 2 weeks of the DVD being sent to you. If you do notify us within that period you must also tell us
what your complaint is in as much detail as possible. If we do not receive any complaint within that period
we shall be entitled to assume that you are satisfied with it and we will then be under no further obligation to
accept any complaint, unless we then agree.
7.3 We will use all reasonable efforts to deal with any complaint promptly and if it is something that is justified
