Date”), Customer must notify Tempo in writing of any nonconformity of the Products, describing the nonconformity in detail.

Customer will not be charged extra for any adjustments made by Tempo. Tempo reserves the right to fill the order with that number of units which is sufficient to fill Customer’s order and such adjustments shall not constitute a breach of the warranty herein.
H. Customer shall indemnify and hold harmless Tempo against any and all claims or damages, including any court costs and attorney fees, relating to Customer’s use of the Products, or any breach by Customer of the terms or warranties and representations herein. Tempo has the right to appoint an attorney of its choice to prosecute all such indemnified claims or damages, and/or to seek an injunction against any ongoing or anticipated breach.

VII. FORCE MAJEURE. Tempo shall not be responsible for delays in the shipment of any Products, or failure to ship such Products, and reserves the right to cancel or delay any order or contract for Products, if such delay or failure is due to causes beyond its reasonable control, including without limitation, shortages of supplies due to unforeseen conditions, orders or actions of government agencies, acts of nature, acts by Customer, fires, strikes, or other labor difficulties, wars, hostilities or terrorist acts, embargoes, equipment breakdown, inability to obtain necessary labor, material or manufacturing facilities due to causes beyond its reasonable control or any other cause beyond its reasonable control. In the event of such delay, and assuming that Tempo chooses not to cancel due to such cause, the date of delivery shall be extended for a period equal to the time lost by reason of the delay.
