7.1 Force Majeure
With respect to all of the Provider’s obligations under these Terms, the Provider shall not be liable for any delay or failure to perform, without fault or negligence on its part, in the event of force majeure as defined by applicable law.
The fact that one of the Parties does not take advantage of a breach by the other Party of any of the obligations referred to in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale shall not be interpreted in the future as a waiver of the obligation in question.
7.3 Invalidity of a provision
The cancellation of one of the stipulations of the present General Terms and Conditions of Sale shall not entail the cancellation of the Terms as a whole, unless the disputed stipulation can be considered, in the minds of the signatories, as substantial and influential, and its cancellation would call into question the general balance of these Terms. In the event of cancellation of one of the stipulations of the present General Terms and Conditions of Sale, considered as non-substantial, the parties shall endeavour to negotiate an economically equivalent clause.
8. Settlement of disputes
The present General Conditions of Sale are governed by and subject to French law.
They are written in French. In the event that they are translated into one or more foreign languages, only the French text shall be deemed authentic in the event of a dispute.
The Customer is informed that they may in any case resort to any alternative method of dispute resolution (conciliation, for example) in the event of a dispute. Any disputes that may arise concerning the validity, interpretation, execution or non-execution, interruption or termination of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale may be submitted to a conciliation procedure between the Parties.
This procedure is confidential. In this case, a conciliator (third party to the present General Terms and Conditions of Sale) will be jointly referred to by the Parties. The conciliation shall be carried out before a single conciliator. In the event of disagreement on the appointment of the conciliator, the respective counsels of the Parties shall agree to appoint a neutral conciliator in the best interest of each of the Parties. The conciliation attempt shall be made in good faith and the Parties agree, in this spirit, to meet at least once under the auspices of the conciliator. In the absence of an agreement to the contrary by the Parties, the conciliation shall not be extended beyond a period of 1 (one) month from the date of referral to the conciliator. The costs and fees of the conciliation shall be borne equally by each of the Parties. Each Party shall bear the costs and fees of any counsel appointed by them in the context of the conciliation.
The Parties hereby agree that in the event of a conciliation agreement, it shall be drafted and signed by the Parties under the auspices of the conciliator and shall allow for an amicable outcome to the dispute that has been submitted. If, however, the legal action of one of the Parties is subject to a statute of limitations that could end during the conciliation, this Party could interrupt the statute of limitations by any legal means, as a precautionary measure, with this procedure remaining suspended until the end of the conciliation.
In the absence of a solution through an alternative method of dispute resolution, any dispute relating to the existence, validity, interpretation, execution and performance of these General Terms of Sale (or any of these clauses) will be the exclusive jurisdiction of the competent courts under the conditions of common law.
