This refund will operate only in case the failure to provide the Services is not due to the USER’s fault.
Force majeure absolves from liability the party that invokes it, with the condition that the other party is informed in 5 (five) calendar days as of the moment such an event appears and makes the fulfillment of its obligations impossible.
The duration of the contractual period is prolonged with a period equal to the duration of the force majeure. In case an event of force majeure is extended over a period longer than 60 (sixty) days, the parties convey under the present contract its termination.
By force majeure it is understood any event independent to the will of the parties, unpredictable and unavoidable, which makes impossible for the parties the partial or total performance of the contractual obligations.
