If either party is affected by any circumstances beyond the reasonable control of that party (including, without prejudice to the foregoing generality, any strike, lockout or other form of industrial actions or prohibitive governmental regulation or order, acts of God, walk-outs, riots, acts of war, epidemics, power failures, failures in the infrastructure of the internet or other telecommunication systems, earthquakes or other disasters) ("Force Majeure"), it shall, as soon as reasonably practicable, notify the other party of the nature and extent thereof.
Neither party shall be deemed to be in breach of this Agreement or otherwise be liable to the other (save for Your obligations to pay the Charges pursuant to this Agreement), by reason of any delay in performance, or non-performance, if due to any Force Majeure which has been notified to the other party within forty-eight (48) hours of the onset of such Force Majeure.
The obligations of both parties shall be suspended during any period of Force Majeure. If the Force Majeure in question continues to prevail for a period in excess of twenty (20) calendar days, the parties shall enter into bona fide discussions with a view of alleviating its effects, or to agreeing upon such alternative arrangements as may be fair and reasonable.
If the Force Majeure in question prevails for a continuous period in excess of forty (40) days, then either party shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement forthwith without incurring any liability therefore to the other.
