5.1 The Customer shall inform Sparq as soon as reasonably practicable if the Event is postponed or cancelled. Unless otherwise specified in the Quotation, and without prejudice to any other rights Sparq may have, Sparq may charge the Customer a fee of an amount up to a specified percentage of the aggregate of the charges for the Services and hire of the Equipment (such percentage depending upon when the Customer informs Sparq of the postponement or cancellation), as set out below:

- 10% - More than 28 days before Sparq is due to start performing the Services at the Venue (or before the Event starts, if the Event is virtual)
- 25% - Between 28 and 15 days (inclusive) before Sparq is due to start performing the Services at the Venue (or before the Event starts, if the Event is virtual)

- 100% - Less than 8 days before Sparq is due to start performing the Services at the Venue (or before the Event starts, if the Event is virtual)
The parties confirm that the fee as calculated above is reasonable and proportionate to protect Sparq's legitimate interest in performance of the Contract. Sparq shall invoice the Customer for such fee on or at any time after it receives such notification.
5.2 Any additional services or equipment required or requested by the Customer which are not set out in the Quotation, or which are necessitated as a result of the set-up at the Venue being different from that notified to Sparq or apparent from Sparq’s inspection (as contemplated in clause 3.4), shall be charged at the rates agreed by the parties or, in the absence of agreement, at rates reasonably determined by Sparq. For the avoidance of doubt the terms of these Conditions shall apply to any such additional services or equipment.
6 Charges and Payment
6.1 The charges for the provision of the Services and/or the hire of the Equipment shall be as set out in the Quotation, although such charges may be altered to the extent provided in the Contract, and shall be payable in the amounts and at the times specified in the Quotation.
6.2 The Customer shall pay each invoice submitted by Sparq within 30 days of the date of the invoice. Time for payment shall be of the essence of the Contract. Where there is a bona fide dispute between the Customer and Sparq as to whether an element of the amount invoiced is properly due, the Customer shall not delay or withhold payment of any other elements of the invoice which are undisputed.
6.3 All amounts payable by the Customer under the Contract are exclusive of amounts in respect of value added tax chargeable from time to time (VAT). Where any taxable supply for VAT purposes is made under the Contract by Sparq to the Customer, the Customer shall, on receipt of a valid VAT invoice from Sparq, pay to Sparq such additional amounts in respect of VAT as are chargeable on the supply of the Services or hire of the Equipment at the same time as payment is due for the supply of the Services or hire of the Equipment. All such amounts payable by the Customer are also excusive of all other applicable tax, duty, surcharge, customs fee, tariff, costs or charges in relation to the supply, loading, unloading, carriage, import, export and insurance of the Equipment and/or Services, which the Customer shall pay in addition at the then prevailing rate.
6.4 Sparq reserves the right to increase the prices payable by the Customer to reflect increases in its costs which may arise as a result of the introduction of, or change in (or in the interpretation, administration or application of), any law or regulation by any governmental or regulatory authority, including in respect of health and safety or other compliance matters. Such price change shall be binding on the Customer upon Sparq giving the Customer no less than 14 days prior written notice.
6.5 Without limiting any other right or remedy of Sparq, if the Customer fails to make any payment due to Sparq under the Contract by the due date for payment, Sparq may charge the Customer interest and such other sums as may be payable in respect of the overdue amount pursuant to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998.
6.6 The Customer shall pay all amounts due under the Contract in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and the Customer shall not be entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against Sparq in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part. Sparq may, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owing to it by the Customer against any amount payable by Sparq to the Customer.
6.7 Where applications for credit are requested we will supply your personal information to credit reference agencies (CRAs) and they will give us information about you, such as about your financial history. We do this to assess creditworthiness and product suitability, check your identity, manage your account, trace and recover debts and prevent criminal activity. We will also continue to exchange information about you with CRAs on an ongoing basis, including about your settled accounts and any debts not fully repaid on time. CRAs will share your information with other organisations.

7.1 Sparq shall be entitled to require a payment on account of its eventual charges upon formation of the Contract or any time thereafter. Such payment shall be applied against Sparq’s invoices in respect of the Contract, and to the extent that the payment on account exceeds Sparq’s total eventual charges, shall be returned to the Customer as soon as reasonably practicable after Sparq’s final invoice in respect of the Contract is issued.
7.2 Sparq shall be entitled to require a guarantee or other form of security it reasonably considers appropriate in respect of the Customer’s obligations upon formation of the Contract or any time thereafter.
7.3 Failure by the Customer to provide the assurances requested by Sparq pursuant to clause 7.1 or 7.2 shall entitle Sparq to terminate the Contract immediately upon notice to the Customer.

A party (Receiving Party) shall keep in strict confidence all technical or commercial know-how, specifications, inventions, processes or initiatives which are of a confidential nature and have been disclosed to the Receiving Party by the other party (Disclosing Party), its employees, agents or subcontractors, and any other confidential information concerning the Disclosing Party’s business or its products or its services which the Receiving Party may obtain.
