You and SkillMonde irrevocably submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Indian courts if a dispute cannot be settled.

32. Force Majeure

In no event shall Neither Party be responsible or liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under this User Agreement, arising out of or caused by, directly or indirectly, forces beyond its control, including, without limitation, strikes, work stoppages, accidents, acts of war or terrorism, civil or military disturbances, nuclear or natural catastrophes or acts of God, and interruptions, loss or malfunctions of utilities, communications or computer (software and hardware) services, epidemic, pandemic order, regulation, or restriction imposed by governmental, military or lawfully established civilian authorities, or by making of repairs necessitated by an emergency circumstance not limited to those listed above upon the property or equipment of the party or property or equipment of others which is deemed under the operational control of the party (“Force Majeure Events”); 

Any Party claiming a Force Majeure event shall use reasonable diligence to remove the condition that prevents performance and shall not be entitled to suspend performance of its obligations in any greater scope or for any longer duration than is required by the Force Majeure event. Each Party shall use its best efforts to mitigate the effects of such Force Majeure event, remedy its inability to perform, and resume full performance of its obligations hereunder. A Party suffering a Force Majeure event (“Affected Party”) shall notify the other Party (“Non-Affected Party”) in writing (“Notice of Force Majeure Event”) as soon as reasonably practicable specifying the cause of the event, the scope of commitments under the Agreement affected by the event, and a good faith estimate of the time required to restore full performance. Except for those commitments identified in the Notice of Force Majeure Event, the Affected Party shall not be relieved of its responsibility to fully perform as to all other commitments in the Agreement. If the Force Majeure event continues for a period of more than 90 days from the date of the Notice of Force Majeure Event, the Non-Affected Party shall be entitled, at its sole discretion, to terminate the  project with the affected Party.

You will continue to be obligated by this User Agreement even in the case of a sale or transfer.
