The fact that FLAG & KO does not take advantage of a breach of contract by the Buyer does not mean that the Buyer waives the right to take advantage of it in the future.

Thus, any circumstances beyond the control of the Parties, preventing the performance under normal conditions of their obligations, are considered as causes of exoneration of the obligations of the Parties and lead to their suspension.

The Party invoking the circumstances referred to above shall immediately notify the other Party of their occurrence and their disappearance.

The following are considered to be cases of force majeure as usually retained by jurisprudence: events of an irresistible and unforeseeable nature, beyond the control of the Parties, against which they could not reasonably guard and whose consequences they could not have mitigated other than by incurring expenses out of proportion to the expected financial benefits.

In this respect, the following are expressly considered as cases of force majeure or fortuitous events: blockage of means of transport or supply, earthquakes, fires, storms, floods, lightning, stoppage of telecommunication networks or difficulties specific to telecommunication networks external to the Buyers.
