PURCHASER understands and agrees that BARCO's  provision  of  the  goods  and  services  may  depend  on  the  completion  of  certain PURCHASER tasks or adherence to PURCHASER schedules within PURCHASER's control; consequently  the  schedule  for  provision  of  the  goods  and  services  or  any  portion  thereof  may require adjustments or changes in the event such PURCHASER tasks or schedules change or are modified  or  are  not  completed  as  anticipated. BARCO shall  bear  no  liability  or  otherwise  be responsible  for  delays  in  the  provision  of  goods  and  services  or  any  portion  thereof occasioned by PURCHASER's failure to complete in a timely manner a PURCHASER task or adhere to a PURCHASER schedule.


    PURCHASER shall  not  assign  its  rights  or  obligations  hereunder  without  the  prior  written consent  of BARCO,  which  consent  shall  not  be  unreasonably  withheld  or  delayed.  Any attempted assignment in contravention of the foregoing shall be void and of no force or effect.

    Subject  to  compliance  with PURCHASER's  applicable  product  quality,  specifications  and delivery  requirements  specified  in  the  Agreement, BARCO reserves  the  right  to  source production  of  the  goods  supplied  hereunder  from  any  facilities  which  are  owned  by  any  entity controlling,  controlled  by  or  under  common  control  with BARCO. BARCO shall  have no responsibility  for  meeting PURCHASER's  country-of-origin  product  content  requirements  (if any)  unless BARCO is  notified  in  writing  of  such  requirements  at  the  time PURCHASER places  its  order  with BARCO,  or  in  the  case  of  standing  orders,  at  or  before  the  latest  time PURCHASER may  place  an  order  in  accordance  with BARCO's  production  scheduling requirements.


    No provision of this contract may be construed against BARCO as the drafting party. The term"including" means "including without limitation." The term "days" means calendar days unless otherwise expressly stated.


    In  addition  to  any  other  remedies  available  to BARCO at  law, BARCO may  terminate  the Agreement with the PURCHASER upon ten (10) days written notice, delivered by facsimile or email in the event that:

    (a) PURCHASER fails to perform its obligations under or otherwise breaches any provisions of the  Agreement  or  any  other  contract  between PURCHASER and BARCO or  any  of BARCO's affiliates;

    (b) PURCHASER ceases to carry on its business substantially as such business is conducted on the  date  of  the      Agreement      and      such      change      in      circumstances  modifies BARCO's obligations or impairs either party's ability to discharge its obligations under the Agreement;

    (c) PURCHASER is the subject of creditor protection of bankruptcy, reorganization, liquidation receivership or similar proceedings;

    (d) PURCHASER is unable to pay its debts as they become due;

    (e) Any  term,  condition  or  provision  of  the  Agreement  or  any  other  contract  between  the PURCHASER and BARCO becomes  invalid  or  illegal  under  any  applicable  law,  rule  or regulation; or

    (f) An event of Force Majeure listed in section 8 above continues for a period of more than forty five (45) days.
