8. FORCE MAJEUR
TubeAdvertising.eu shall not be liable or responsible for any failure or inability to perform or delay caused by reason of one or more so called â€śforce majeureâ€? contingencies (e.g. any act of God, fire, earthquake, hurricane, natural disaster, strike, labor disturbance, civil commotion, acts of Government, any Law, action of any labor union or association affecting a Party or the industry within which the Party is engaged, delays in the delivery of materials or supplies, terrorist attack, any act of sabotage, etc.). The impacted obligation shall be extended hereunder for a period equal to the duration of any such contingencies to the extent that such contingencies interfere with or disrupt a Partyâ€™s exercise of its Rights hereunder.
All changes or amendments to this Agreement must be in writing. This requirement of the written form also applies to notifications, ancillary agreements and subsequent contractual changes, except where this is specifically stipulated otherwise for individual components. The waiver of the written form requirement must be put in writing. Insofar as the Agreement does not explicitly stipulate exceptions for individual components and statements of intent, a notification by means of telecommunication does not satisfy the requirement of the written form. There are no ancillary verbal agreements. In the event of the Affiliate becoming bankrupt or being placed in liquidation, whether voluntary or compulsory or reaching a compromise with its creditors or failing to satisfy any judgment debt, TubeAdvertising.eu shall be entitled, to cancel this Agreement with immediate effect without prejudice to those rights and obligations accrued prior to such bankruptcy. The Parties hereby agree that no agency, joint venture or partnership is created thereby, that no franchise agreement is created hereby and that neither Party shall allege in any proceedings that a franchise agreement is created by this Agreement or exists between the Parties, and that neither Party shall incur obligations in the name of the other party without the other Partyâ€™s prior written consent. The Parties shall act and at all times shall be independent contractors. All notices or other communications which are required or permitted hereunder shall be in writing and shall be sufficiently given if (a) delivered personally or (b) sent by registered or certified mail, postage prepaid, or (c) sent by overnight courier with a nationally recognized courier, or (d) sent via e-mail with confirmation of receipt in writing in any of the foregoing manners. If sent by registered mail, postage prepaid, notice shall be considered delivered three (3) business days after the date of mailing, and if sent by any other means set forth above, notice shall be considered delivered upon receipt thereof. Either Party may by notice to the other Party change address to which notice or other communications to be delivered or mailed
The section and paragraph headings herein are for convenience only and shall not be interpreted to limit or affect in any way the meaning of the language contained herein. This Agreement shall be binding upon the Parties hereto and their respective successors and permitted assigns. Each person executing this Agreement in a representative capacity warrants that he or she is duly authorized by the person or entity he or she represents to enter into this Agreement on behalf of that person or entity. This Agreement is personal and may not be assigned to any third parties without the prior written consent of the other party. This Agreement is subject to the laws of the United Kingdom, with exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the international sale of goods. This also applies to all sundry claims that are related to this contract, in particular those arising from tortious acts. Jurisdiction for all court cases arising from this contract is TubeAdvertising.euÂ´s main place of business. In the event that individual provisions of this Agreement are wholly or partially ineffective or unfeasible, or that they subsequently lose their legal validity or become unfeasible, the validity of the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain unaffected. In the case of the invalidity of a provision of this Agreement, the parties agree to replace this provision by a provision that most closely resembles the economic/commercial intention of the invalid provision. The same holds true should a loophole be identified in the Agreement. The contracting parties will replace the invalid provision or loophole immediately with a valid provision.
