5.1 The force majeure is defined (according to art. 1351 of the Romanian Civil Code) as that unforeseeable event and impossible to remove, occurring after the signing-date by the client of the contract with INPERSPECTIVE, which prevents one or both parties from fulfilling their assumed obligations, usually met under the form of state of war, riots, natural disasters, pandemic or localized epidemic, etc., and will exempt the party who invokes it from any liability.

In the event that the duration of the force majeure situation exceeds 10 days, there being evidence to this effect, the parties undertake by this contract to submit a notice regarding the modification of its provisions or its termination before the deadline. The exemption only operates during the event considered to be a force majeure event.
5.3. Although the services provided by INPERSPECTIVE can be carried out largely on a remote basis through digital means, if the consultancy services cannot be provided in the contractual agreed terms (as is the case with restrictive measures adopted by specific extraordinary legislative measures due to a pandemic), the latter will notify the client in writing by e-mail. In this case, the parties agree on the best way to achieve their goal despite the de facto impediments, in the sense of rescheduling the consultancy session or, resuming the project (as the case may be), or they will agree to refund the amounts paid in advance, back to the client.
5.4.

Thus, the amounts paid in advance for consultancy sessions that cannot be honoured by the client due to a force majeure event or unforeseeable circumstances, will be refunded with maximum speed, upon the client's request. Also, the amounts invoiced can be postponed as a result of a written agreement between the parties (by means of an addendum) and the projects in progress or not started at the date a force majeure event or unforeseeable circumstances occurred, will be resumed or re-enacted, after the force majeure event or unforeseeable circumstances have passed. We expect the same flexibility and understanding from our clients, in the event that the INPERSPECTIVE consultant is caught in a force majeure situation or unforeseeable circumstances.
