5. In the event of Frustration/Force Majeure, neither party will be liable for any delay in performing or failure to perform any of its obligations under this agreement caused by events beyond its reasonable control (Force Majeure Event). The party claiming the Force Majeure will promptly notify the other in writing of the reasons for the delay or stoppage. If the party claiming the Force Majeure Event has complied with this clause, its performance under this contract will be suspended for the period that the Force Majeure Event continues and the party will have an extension of time for performance which is reasonable (and in any event is equal to the period of delay or stoppage).
Any costs incurred due to such delay or stoppage will be borne by the party incurring these costs. Either party may, if the delay or stoppage continues for more than 30 continuous days, terminate this agreement with immediate effect on giving written notice to the other and neither party will be liable to the other for such termination, and the party claiming the Force Majeure Event will take all necessary steps to bring that event to a close or to find a solution by which this agreement may be performed despite the Force Majeure.

6. Goods supplied are manufactured within the normal limits of manufactured quality. Goods
are subject to variation in colour, texture or finish. Whilst every effort is made to ensure Goods are of satisfactory quality and match specification, it is not always possible to ensure an exact match with any sample seen, due to batch manufacturing in engineered materials and variations in nature with natural materials. Material is accepted on confirmation of order, no dispute on colour or texture will be accepted thereafter.

attempted to be resolved at the discretion of the Seller, although void if the Seller believes the Buyers intention may be unreasonable or for malicious, disingenuous, fraudulent, cynical, immoral or illegal purposes. Refused offers of reasonable resolution in any dispute may cause the Seller to consider the Buyer ‘s intention to be for malicious, disingenuous, fraudulent, cynical, immoral or illegal purposes. In this situation the Seller reserves the right to withdraw any/and/or all offers of resolution with the option of formal litigation via HM Courts & Tribunal Services. The Seller reserves the right to employ third parties at the Seller’s discretion and without prior notice to undertake work on the Seller’s behalf at any stage of manufacture, installation or after service.
