We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under a Contract that is caused by events outside our reasonable control.
An event outside our control includes any act, event, non-happening, omission or accident beyond our reasonable control and includes in particular (without limitation) the following:
a. Strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action.
b. Civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war.
c. Fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster.
d. Impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport
e. Impossibility of the use of public or private telecommunications networks. f. The acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government.
f. Any shipping, postal or other relevant transport strike, failure or accidents. Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended for the period that any event outside our control continues, and we will have an extension of time for performance for the duration of that period. We will use our reasonable endeavours to bring the event outside our control to a close or to find a solution by which our obligations under the Contract may be performed despite the event outside our control.
