This document is an integral part of the present Terms and Conditions. The Applicant acknowledges that it has read such documents and undertakes to comply with their applicable terms.
The fee for a UEMS-EACCME® accreditation application relating to an e-learning material is determined in accordance with the number of modules.

In the case of an online payment the service fee will be borne by the applicant. Provision of service by the UEMS-EACCME® will only be performed upon receipt of the full payment upon submission.
Any delay in payment shall give rise to interests on the account of late payment, at the statutory rate in accordance with Belgian law. We reserve the right to seek recovery of any monies remaining unpaid sixty days from the date of invoice via debt collection agencies and/or through court. In such circumstances, you shall be liable for any and all additional administrative and/or court costs.

at its due date, the UEMS-EACCME® reserves the right to suspend
the processing of any pending or future application until full payment.

failure to fulfil the contract shall, in any case, be limited to DATA. The Applicant shall indemnify and hold harmless
the UEMS-EACCME®, its employees and its contractors and agents from and against any and all liability

until all necessary data has been

Any Party affected by such event shall forthwith inform the other
Party of the same and shall use all reasonable
endeavours to comply with the terms and conditions of any agreement contained
herein. The obligations of the
affected Party shall be reduced and deadlines shall be prolonged for the
duration of the force majeure. Both
Parties shall use all reasonable endeavours to limit the consequences of the
force majeure on the contract or the agreement
as much as possible.
Failure of either Party to insist upon strict performance of any provision
of this or any agreement
contained in these Terms and
Conditions or the failure of either Party to exercise any right or remedy to
which it is entitled hereunder shall not constitute a waiver thereof
and shall not cause a diminution of the obligations under this or any agreement. No waiver of any of the provisions
of these Terms and Conditions or any agreement shall
be effective unless
it is expressly stated to be such and signed
by both Parties.
If any of the present provisions are deemed invalid or unenforceable for any reason (including, but not limited to the exclusions and limitations set out above), then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be severed from these Terms and Conditions and the remaining provisions will continue to apply. The Applicant and the UEMS-EACCME® shall negotiate in good faith in order to replace the invalid or unenforceable provision by a valid and enforceable one, which should be as close to the purpose of the original one as possible.
Failure of the UEMS-EACCME® to enforce any of the provisions set out in
these Terms and Conditions and any
agreement, or failure to exercise any option to terminate, shall not affect the
validity of these Terms and Conditions.
