Buyer expressly waives any rights of rescission, cancellation or revocation of acceptance with respect to delivered Products.
Neither Synapsa, nor Buyer shall be liable to the other for failure to perform any obligation under the Contract to the extent such failure to perform is due to labour unrest, riot, war, fire, accident, weather or other natural disasters, lack of energy supplies, supplier delays, compliance with law, failure to obtain all necessary Licences, permits or approvals after reasonable efforts, or any unforeseen circumstances or other causes beyond such party’s reasonable control.
These Terms and the Contract Documents of which they are a part set forth the entire agreement between Synapsa and Buyer with respect to their subject matter and supersede all previous written or oral agreements and understandings between Synapsa and Buyer. These Terms and the Contract Documents may not be amended nor may compliance with any provision herein or therein be waived, except by a written document duly and validly executed by both Synapsa and Buyer, or in the case of a waiver, the party waiving compliance. Any part of these Terms held to be void, invalid or unenforceable shall be treated as severable, leaving valid the remaining Terms.
This Contract shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of Slovak Republic. Any dispute or claim arising out, relating to or in connection with this Contract shall be resolved exclusively by final, binding arbitration, provided that, Synapsa may seek injunctive or other relief in any court of law in order to prevent any unauthorized copying, disclosure, use, retention or distribution of its intellectual property.
