9. FORCE MAJEURE. Seller shall not be liable, and the Buyer shall have no right in respect of any delay in delivery or failure to deliver any material named herein, or of the nonperformance or delay in performance of any term or condition of this agreement, directly or indirectly, resulting from fire, explosion, accident, flood, labor trouble or shortage, war, any act of or authorized by any governmental agency, inability to obtain suitable material, equipment, fuel, power or transportation, or Act of God, or arising from any and all contingencies, happenings or causes beyond the control of Seller.
