17.9 Force Majeure. Neither Party will be liable for any failure to perform its obligations hereunder, other than payment obligations, due to unforeseen circumstances or causes beyond the Partys reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, war, riot, embargoes, acts of civil or military authorities, acts of terrorism or sabotage, electronic viruses, worms or corrupting microcode, fire, flood, earthquake, accident, strikes, radiation, inability to secure transportation, failure of communications or electrical lines, facilities, fuel, energy, labour or materials. In an event of force majeure, either Partys time for delivery or other performance will be extended for a period equal to the duration of the delay caused thereby. The Party subject to the force majeure shall (A)give notice of suspension of its obligations as soon as reasonably practicable stating the date and extent of such suspension and the cause thereof, (B)use its best efforts to remedy or remove such force majeure with the least practicable delay, and (C)resume the performance of its obligations as soon as reasonably practicable after the remediation or removal of the cause. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, if an event of force majeure can reasonably be expected to prevent the affected Party from performing its obligations for a period of at least six (6)months, then the other Party may terminate this Agreement upon not less than fifteen days written notice to the affected Party.
