Neither Party shall be liable to the other for any failure to perform any of its obligations (except payment obligations) under this Agreement during any period in which such performance is delayed by circumstances beyond its reasonable control, such as fire, flood, war, embargo, strike, riot, terrorism, or the intervention of any governmental authority (a “Force Majeure”). In such event, however, the delayed Party must promptly provide the other Party with written notice of the Force Majeure. The delayed Party’s time for performance will be excused for the duration of the Force Majeure.
