The sealing/packaging of the articles may, however, not be broken, and the articles must be delivered to Tribal Windsurfing intact. If this aspect is not adhered to, Tribal Windsurfing will then not take the articles back nor will it issue a refund. The direct costs of the return shipment are for account of the Buyer.

9.2. Until the time of delivery, the Buyer is authorized to dissolve the Agreement unilaterally if delivery has not taken place within 30 calendar days after the agreed delivery date. Tribal Windsurfing shall in that case fully refund the amount already paid by the Buyer as soon as possible, in any case within 30 days.
9.3. For practical reasons, delivery may take place in installments.
10. Force majeure
10.1. Without prejudice to its other rights and remedies, Tribal Windsurfing has the right, in case of circumstances beyond its control, to either suspend the fulfillment of the Order of the Buyer or to dissolve the Agreement without recourse to the courts, such by notifying the Buyer of this in writing and without any obligation to compensate for damages, unless the requirements of reasonableness and fairness would dictate otherwise in the given circumstances.
