The Party which asserts that an event of force majeure has occurred, shall immediately notify the other Party to this Agreement, by Notification, of the first appearance thereof, providing all of the details including the cause or even which provoked said force majeure.

Neither Party shall be considered as in default nor responsible for any delay or failure in the performance of its contractual obligations by virtue of this Agreement, when said performance was impeded by force majeure.

Such delay or failure shall not constitute an event of non-execution of the obligations contained in this Agreement and the times established therein for the performance of such obligations shall thus be extended by a period equal to that during which the event of force majeure existed and the performance was impeded thereby.

In the event of force majeure, the Parties shall make every possible effort to reduce the effect of force majeure on the execution of this Agreement.
