1.2.     The quote and these general terms and conditions together constitute, and will be referred to as, the Agreement as concluded between Hyrde B.V. (Hyrde) and its customer (the Customer) (each referred to as a Party and jointly referred to as Parties), for the purpose of providing the products and/or services (Products and/or Services) described in the relevant order or statement of work (hereinafter both referred to as: Order).

2.3.     No Order shall be deemed to be accepted by Hyrde until explicitly accepted in writing by Hyrde or (if earlier) Hyrde notifies the Customer that the Order is ready for collection.

Each Party shall use the relevant order number in all subsequent correspondence relating to the Order.

2.6.     The Customer shall not be able to amend or cancel an Order after it has been accepted by Hyrde, unless explicitly approved by Hyrde.
