No Party will be held responsible to the other Party nor be deemed to be in default under, or in breach of any provision of, this Agreement for failure or delay in performing any obligation of this Agreement when such failure or delay is due to force majeure, and without the fault or negligence of the Party so failing or delaying. For purposes of this Agreement, force majeure means a cause beyond the reasonable control of a Party, which may include acts of God; acts, regulations, or laws of any government; war; terrorism; civil commotion; fire, flood, earthquake, tornado, tsunami, explosion or storm; pandemic; epidemic and failure of public utilities or common carriers. In such event the Party so failing, or delaying, will immediately notify the other Party of such inability and its’ reason to give notice. The Party giving such notice will be excused from its obligations under this Agreement as it is thereby disabled from performing as per the cause beyond reasonable control. To the extent possible, each Party will use reasonable efforts to minimize the force majeure.
