Article 8 - Force Majeure
If the non-fulfilment of any of the obligations stipulated in these specific terms and conditions is caused by a case of force majeure or an unavoidable accident not within the control and reasonable due diligence of the parties, neither of the parties will be held responsible.
The subsequent fulfilment of orders and obligations will be suspended in the event that a case of force majeure occurs that is outside the control of the parties, unforeseeable and unavoidable, making it impossible to fulfil its contractual obligations, without causing Welcome Family to incur any liability as a result with respect to the clients order and without entitling the client to claim any corresponding compensation from Welcome Family.
The following will be considered a non-limiting list of cases of force majeure: fire, flood, earthquake or any other natural disaster of this type, government intervention, war, riot, labour strike or nationwide labour dispute external to one of the parties, the duration and intensity of which are exceptionally great.
The parties hereby agree under such circumstances to seek an alternative solution, in good faith, that allows them to continue their normal business activities.
The contract will resume normal fulfilment, and the parties will once again be responsible for fulfilling all of their obligations stipulated herein, as soon as the end of the case of force majeure has been duly noted.
