6. FORCE MAJEURE; CLIENT RESCHEDULING
6.1 Vin Social’s obligations hereunder are subject to interruption by Vin Social’s, the platform’s, or any third party’s (i.e. sommeliers, vendors etc.) detention and could be prevented by sickness, accident, acts of God, riots, strikes, labor difficulties, epidemics, or any act or order of any public authority or any other cause, similar or dissimilar, that is beyond Vin Social’s control. In any such event, it is understood and agreed that Vin Social shall be relieved of Vin Social’s obligations hereunder, and Client shall have no claims of any kind or nature against Vin Social relating to such obligations, provided Vin Social notifies Client in writing of any such force majeure event and takes reasonable steps to mitigate any loss or harm to Client. In the event that any third party, to which Vin Social is contractually obligated on Client’s behalf, is ready, willing and, but for a force majeure circumstance at the platform, able to perform, Client shall remain liable to Vin Social for the cost of such third party’s services as if they had in fact performed; provided, that Vin Social will use its best efforts to negotiate a financial settlement with the affected third party, and Vin Social will refund to Client any reductions that Vin Social is able to, in fact, negotiate.
6.2 In the event that Client desires to reschedule the Services (for any reason other than Vin Social’s sole material breach or a Force Majeure event, as described above) for a date other than that specified herein, such rescheduling shall be treated as a cancellation and rebooking of the Services. Accordingly, in such circumstances: (i) Client shall remain liable to Vin Social for the full amount agreed upon in the SOW, as well as for the costs of any approved third party (vendors or entertainment) with which Vin Social contracted on Client’s behalf; (ii) Vin Social shall put forth best efforts to a reschedule the Services with the initially contracted vendors (or, to the extent necessary, replacement vendors); and (iii) Client shall be responsible for all additional costs incurred due to the rescheduling (including, but not limited to, additional monies required by any applicable vendors to provide their services for the new date).
7. BREACH OR CANCELLATION
Each one of the conditions of this Agreement and/or the SOW is of the essence of this Agreement, the fulfillment of which is required. In the event that Client (i) cancels the Services, or (ii) does not perform fully its material obligations hereunder, Vin Social shall have the option to perform or refuse to perform hereunder and in either event Client shall be liable to Vin Social for (i) Vin Social’s fees in the SOW, including but not limited to, Vin Social’s production fee; and (ii) all Services related expenses incurred by Vin Social (inclusive of all out of pocket expenses and all payments made and/or contractually owed by Vin Social to all approved third parties).
Should an event attendee receive a damaged wine box, Vin Social will send replacement product with expedited shipping at Vin Social’s expense; provided, however, that Vin Social cannot guarantee receipt by the event date.
