Terms & Conditions

1. Introduction

These Terms and Conditions establish the framework for the professional relationship between 3rd Space Management & Casting ("the Agency"), a duly registered entity in Sweden, and its clients ("Clients"). This document, combined with specific booking confirmations, outlines the contractual obligations and rights of both the Agency and the Clients, forming the complete agreement governing their interaction.

2. Agreement

The agreement is formalized when the Client returns the signed booking confirmation to the Agency. If the Client proceeds with the engagement without returning the signed form, it will be interpreted as acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Any amendments or variations to the booking confirmation must be explicitly agreed upon in writing, and endorsed by both parties, to ensure clear communication and mutual understanding of any changes to the standard terms.

3. Booking Fees

  • 3.1 Permitted Use: The booking fee grants the Client the right to use the model’s images within the scope defined in the booking form, which includes specific details on the medium, duration, and geographical location of usage. The Agency provides a clear breakdown of these rights to prevent any misunderstandings regarding the scope of usage.
  • 3.2 Working Hours and Overtime: The standard working hours are set from 9 AM to 6 PM. Work conducted outside of these hours is subject to overtime charges, calculated at 1.5 times the standard rate during weekdays and double the rate on Swedish public holidays, ensuring fair compensation for the models.
  • 3.3 Travel and Accommodation: Travel expenses are covered for distances beyond a 50 km radius from central Stockholm. Accommodations, if required, are to be provided by the Client and must meet reasonable quality standards, ensuring comfort and safety for the model.
  • 3.4 Fitting and Preparation Fees: Fees for fittings or preparatory work are charged additionally and are to be agreed upon prior to the commencement of such activities, providing transparency and avoiding billing disputes.
  • 3.5 Additional Expenses: The Client will reimburse the Agency for any additional expenses incurred on behalf of the Client during the assignment. A handling fee of 15% will be added to these expenses to cover administrative costs.

4. Additional Fees

  • 4.1 Usage: If the Client requires usage rights beyond those initially agreed (such as for digital platforms or additional print territories), additional fees will apply. These fees are determined based on the scope of the extended usage to ensure appropriate compensation for the extended exposure.
  • 4.2 Territory Extensions: For usage outside the agreed territories, additional fees are charged to compensate for the broader exposure and potential market impact.
  • 4.3 Renewals and Extensions: Should the Client wish to extend or renew the booking or usage rights, such modifications must be approved by the Agency in writing. Additional fees will apply, reflecting the ongoing value provided by the model’s work.

5. Agency Fees

Agency fees are calculated as a percentage of the total booking fee, exclusive of VAT. These fees compensate the Agency for its services in managing negotiations, administration, and ensuring compliance with the contractual obligations by all parties.

6. Cancellations and Termination

  • 6.1 Cancellations by Client: If the Client cancels within 48 hours of the scheduled start, the full booking fee is charged due to the short notice, which precludes the possibility of booking alternative engagements for the model. If cancellation occurs within a week but more than 48 hours before the start, a 50% fee applies.
  • 6.2 Weather-related Cancellations: Adjustments for weather-related cancellations are dependent on timing; the first cancellation incurs a 50% fee, while subsequent cancellations due to weather are charged at the full rate, recognizing the costs and logistical challenges imposed on the Agency and the model.
