CANCELLATIONS 11 The buyer has no right to cancel any order once it has been accepted by the Seller. The Seller may as its discretion accept the cancellation of any order providing the Seller is indemnified by the Buyer in respect of all costs and expenses incurred by the Seller prior to the cancellation being accepted but in no circumstances is the Seller obligated to accept any cancellation. FORCE MAJEURE 12 12.1 If the Seller is prevented, hindered or delayed from making delivery of any goods by reason of Act of God, war, hostilities, civil disturbance, government restrictions or regulation of any kind, strikes or industrial disputes, force majeure or any other causes of whatsoever nature beyond the Seller’s control the Seller may give notice in writing to the Buyer either:- 12.2 Cancelling the Seller’s outstanding obligations to deliver Goods under the contract, or 12.2.1 extending the Contract by a period not exceeding three months. 12.3 If the Seller shall give notice under sub-clause (1) (ii) hereof there shall be no liability of the Seller to the Buyer in damages for loss of consequential loss of whatsoever nature. 12.4 If the Seller shall give notice under sub-clause (1) (ii) hereof the time of delivery shall be extended accordingly and the Seller shall be deemed not to be in breach of contract, provided that the Buyer may within 7 days of the receipt of such a notice serve on the Seller a counter-notice electing to treat any future performance of the contract as cancelled, in which event further deliveries of Goods shall be treated as avoided by mutual consent and neither party shall be liable in damages or otherwise in respect hereof. 12.5 The foregoing provisions of this clause are without prejudice to the right of the Seller to recover the price of any Goods that have already been invoiced to the Buyer or the risk in which has passed to the Buyer. 12.6 If the Seller shall fail to make due delivery or shall make late or short delivery of the Goods or any part thereof for any cause not set out in sub-clause (1) hereof the liability of the Seller to the Buyer for damages in respect of any such loss or expense of whatsoever nature thereby occasioned shall be limited to, and shall not exceed a sum which equals the price of that part of the Goods in respect of which default has been made. CHOICE OF LAW 13 All contacts shall be deemed to be made in United Kingdom and shall be constructed on accordance with and be governed by the laws of England and Wales and in the event of any dispute arising between the Buyer and the Seller same shall be referred to arbitration dispute resolution.
