17.3. Force majeure. Neither party will be liable for, or be considered to be in breach of or default under the Agreement on account of, any delay or failure to perform as required by the Agreement as a result of any that qualifies as a force majeure as defined under applicable law, such as fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature, riots, strikes, or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of such Party, it being agreed that a temporary impediment caused by a force majeure event is an impediment that lasts for a period of thirty (30) days from the appearance of the event generated the force majeure. Beyond this period, the impediment will be considered as definitive according to the applicable law and the Agreement can be automatically terminated. 

17.4. Contractual contingency. The parties expressly exclude the application of any provision under the applicable law allowing the Customer to obtain directly or by court order the performance by a third party at the Provider’s cost, a refund or the reduction of the price payable.

17.5. Entire agreement. The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the Parties. It supersedes all prior negotiations, statements, representations or agreements, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter between the Parties. In the event of any contradiction between documents, it is expressly agreed between the Parties that the specific provisions and purchase orders shall prevail over the general provisions.

17.6. Non-waiver. Unless expressly provided otherwise, any failure by any party to this Agreement to enforce at any time any term or condition under this Agreement will not be considered a waiver of that party’s right thereafter to enforce each and every term and condition of this Agreement.

17.7. Updated. The Provider may change and update certain schedules with reasonable notice. Notice will be given to the Customer by e-mail.

17.8. Nullity. The nullity, unenforceability or, more generally, the lack of effect of any of the provisions of the Agreement shall not affect the remainder of the Agreement and the Agreement shall be performed as if such provision had never existed, provided, however, that this shall not compromise the existence or balance of the Agreement and that the provision in question has not been a determining condition of a Party's consent. In addition, the Parties agree to replace, to the extent possible, any ineffective stipulation with a valid stipulation having the same effect and reflecting, as much as possible, their initial will.

17.9. Validity of electronic evidence. Documents and information exchanged between the Parties in electronic form shall be considered as evidence, provided that the person from whom they originate can be duly identified and that they are drawn up and stored in reasonable security conditions to ensure their integrity in accordance with applicable law. The parties agree to inform their employees of the validity of such proof of communications.

17.10. Applicable law and jurisdiction. The Agreement is governed by French law. The Parties shall make their best efforts to settle amicably any dispute arising from its performance or interpretation. Failing amicable settlement between the Parties expressed by the execution of a transactional agreement within thirty (30) days following the notification by one of the Parties of the dispute describing the dispute and referring to this provision, the dispute shall be brought before the competent Courts within the jurisdiction of the Commercial Court of Nanterre (France), notwithstanding a plurality of defendants or introduction of third parties, even where interim or protective measures are ordered by ways of injunctive proceedings.
