When PMC is required to procure overseas Goods to fulfil an Order the Order is subject to confirmation by PMC.
Force Majeure – Should PMC be delayed in or prevented from making delivery owing to any cause whatsoever beyond PMC’s control, such as Act of God, war, strike, riots, government intervention, industrial stoppage, or natural disaster or otherwise, PMC shall be at liberty to cancel or suspend the Order without incurring any liability for any loss or damage resulting there from.
