We are released from the responsibility for a partial or complete non-fulfilment of our contractual obligations insofar as this non-fulfilment is a consequence of circumstances of force majeure. Cases of force majeure include, but are not limited to, warlike events, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.), fire, official interventions and prohibitions, delays in transport and customs clearance, transport damage, shortage of energy and raw materials, the rejection of a large or important workload, industrial disputes, pandemics, etc. Such circumstances shall also be considered as force majeure if they occur at the part of our suppliers. In any case, unforeseen, unavoidable events shall be deemed to be cases of force majeure. If such an event of force majeure occurs, the contractually agreed deadline for the fulfilment of these obligations shall be extended by the duration of the event of force majeure plus a reasonable period for resuming production. This shall also apply in the event that one of our subcontractors invokes a circumstance of force majeure. If a case of force majeure prevents the remaining execution of the contract in its essential parts and if the case of force majeure lasts longer than 3 months, both parties are entitled to withdraw from the contract. In this case, the deliveries and services provided up to that point shall be paid to us in full and we shall be released from the obligations entered into for the project.
We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the contract in the event that the customer substantially violates the provisions of this contract. This includes, but is not limited to, default of payment for a period exceeding 30 days, refusal of access to the company premises or any other material breach of contract or breach of good faith.
