The Provider does not guarantee that the Training Content will be free from errors, viruses, or other harmful components.

  1. FORCE MAJEURE AND UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES

7.1. Force Majeure – The Party affected by an Event of Force Majeure (“Affected Party”) shall not be deemed in breach of the Contract, or liable to the other Party due to a delay in performance or non-performance of any of its obligations, to the extent that this delay or non-performance is due to an Event of Force Majeure. The performance period of the hindered obligation shall be extended accordingly. An Event of Force Majeure cannot be invoked for obligations involving payment. The Event of Force Majeure correspondingly suspends the payment of the affected/hindered obligations. The Affected Party must, as soon as reasonably possible, notify the other Party in writing of the occurrence of an Event of Force Majeure, its start date, and the impact of this Event of Force Majeure on its ability to fulfill its obligations. Upon the cessation of the Event of Force Majeure, the Affected Party shall promptly notify the other Party of this cessation and resume the performance of the affected obligations. If an Event of Force Majeure persists for thirty (30) consecutive days or more, either Party may terminate the portion of the Contract related to the Affected Services on a date specified by it in a written termination notice to the other Party.

7.2. “Event of Force Majeure” refers to the occurrence of an act or event beyond the reasonable control of the Affected Party, making the performance of the Contract by the Affected Party impossible or excessively challenging or unreasonably costly concerning the Contract. This includes, without limitation and besides cases usually recognized by applicable law or jurisprudence: (i) explosions, fires, floods, earthquakes, catastrophic weather conditions, illnesses, epidemics, and pandemics, including Covid-19 or monkeypox, or natural disasters; (ii) acts of war (declared or not), acts of terrorism, insurrections, riots, civil disturbances, rebellions, or sabotage; (iii) acts from local, regional, national, foreign, or international authorities or jurisdictions, situations of a state of emergency, or changes in legislation; (iv) social conflicts, lock-outs, strikes, or other national-level organized claims; and (v) failures or fluctuations of electric power or telecommunications services or equipment or other essential infrastructures, expropriation, deprivation, or destruction, wholly or partially, of equipment or properties necessary for executing the Services (such as cables) not resulting from a maintenance failure.

7.3. Unforeseen Circumstances – In the event of unforeseen and/or unpredictable circumstances at the time of concluding the Contract, making the execution of the Provider’s obligations significantly and excessively more burdensome, the Provider has the right, at any time, to request a revision of the impacted parts of the Contract. These circumstances must not be attributable to the Provider, and the Provider must not have agreed to assume the risk under the Contract. During the renegotiation period, the Parties continue to fulfill their obligations. If, after a period of one (1) month from the revision request, the Parties are unable to agree on such a revision, either Party can escalate such discussion as provided by the dispute resolution procedure. If the Parties fail to reach an agreement, the Provider may, with a written notice of thirty (30) days, terminate the impacted parts of the Contract without compensation, costs, or expenses owed to the Client. This clause could notably apply, but is not limited to, due to a price increase of raw materials (including energy, …). To avoid any doubt, the Client cannot oppose the Provider’s right to invoke this clause by arguing that the Parties were aware, at the time of concluding the Contract, of an event affecting the producing countries of said raw materials.
