12. Force Majeure.

 

A. Excused Performance. Each Party will be excused from its failure to perform its respective obligations under this Agreement, except the obligation to pay for Products, where such failure is caused by fire, flood, riot, act of nature, war hostilities, government regulations or other emergency acts imposed by governmental authority, embargoes, epidemics, pandemics (including COVID-19), strikes, labor disputes or work stoppages, supply chain issues, transportation issues, or any similar cause beyond the reasonable control of such Party (“Force Majeure Event(s)”); provided that such affected Party uses good faith and diligent efforts to perform its obligations despite the occurrence of such Force Majeure Event; and provided further that if any Party intends to rely on a Force Majeure Event hereunder to excuse said Party’s performance , such Party shall provide written notice to the other Party of its intent to rely on such a force majeure event and identify specifically such event and its expected duration.

 

 

13. Miscellaneous.

 

A. No Agency or Franchise Created. Each Party is an independent contractor and is not an agent, employee or legal representative of the other Party under this Agreement. There is no agency, partnership, joint venture, franchise or other relationship between the Parties except that of a non-exclusive relationship. All persons engaged by a Party shall be that Party's employees, legal representatives or agents but not those of the other Party. Customer is not authorized to enter into any contracts or to create any obligations, commitments or responsibilities (expressed or implied) on behalf of, or in the name of OPTVUE, or to bind OPTVUE in any manner whatsoever, without the prior written approval of OPTVUE in each instance. No contract or commitment entered into by Customer without such written consent shall be binding on OPTVUE.

B. Modification; Waiver. Neither this Agreement nor any term or provision hereof may be modified, amended or waived, except by a subsequent instrument in writing duly executed by the Parties. No waiver by either Party of any breach of this Agreement by the other Party will diminish or prejudice the rights of the non-breaching Party with respect to any other term of the Agreement or law. No delay or failure by either Party in exercising its rights with respect to any term of this Agreement will diminish or prejudice that Party’s rights under that term of this Agreement or with respect to any other terms of this Agreement or law. The failure of either Party to insist in one or more instances upon strict performance of any provision of this Agreement or to take advantage of any of its rights shall not operate as a continuing waiver of such rights.

 

C. Assignment; Subcontracting. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of OPTVUE and Customer, each of their respective successors and permitted assigns, and any entity in which Customer owns a 50% or greater equity interest. Neither Party shall assign, delegate or subcontract its rights or responsibilities under this Agreement, or any portion thereof, without the prior written consent of the other Party, which consent may not be withheld unreasonably; provided, however, that may assign this Agreement upon giving notice to Customer in connection with a merger, consolidation, sale of all or substantially all of its assets, reorganization, or change in ownership. In addition, Customer may assign this Agreement in connection with a reorganization or restructuring that does not involve a transfer of an ownership interest in Customer to a competitor of OPTVUE that is in the business of manufacturing any components, products, or Products similar to those manufactured by OPTVUE.

 

D. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be deemed deleted from this Agreement and replaced by a valid and enforceable provision which, so far as possible, achieves the same economic and other benefits for the Parties as the severed provision was intended to achieve, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

 

E. Entire Agreement. This Agreement, including any attachments, schedules, exhibits and annexes hereto, represent the entire integrated contract of the Parties with respect to the terms of purchase by Customer of the Products manufactured by OPTVUE for resale by Customer, and supersedes any previous agreements and understandings between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement, and may not be modified except by an instrument in writing signed by the duly authorized representatives of both Parties and expressly stating that it is an amendment to this Agreement. OPTVUE expressly disclaims, objects to, and rejects any additional or different terms and conditions provided by Customer.

 

F. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by, construed, and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without reference to the conflicts of laws principles thereof.
