Binding Agreement: By ordering oil from Eastern Petroleum customer expressly agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Customer understands and agrees that Eastern Petroleum would not sell or deliver any oil without the customer’s express agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions as contained herein.
Force Majeure: We shall not be liable for failure to perform any obligations under this agreement where such failure may be due to causes reasonably beyond our control, (e.g., storms, floods, lightning, or earthquakes), fires, explosions, wars, civil unrest, labor disputes, transportation breakdowns, harbor closings, governmental restrictions (e.g., allocations, priorities or price controls) or any other such cause. Seller’s ability to supply petroleum product is further dependent on their continued availability from our usual and anticipated supply sources. In the event such products are not readily available in sufficient quantities to meet our total commitment, we shall have the right to allocate in a fair and reasonable manner. No such occurrence shall relieve buyer of this obligation to pay in full for product actually delivered.
