51. Force Majeure
Neither Party shall be liable for any delay or failure to perform (i) if and to the extent such delay or failure arises from an act of God or of the public enemy, act of civil disobedience, epidemic, war, or insurrection; and (ii) provided the non-performing Party is without fault and the delay or failure could not have been prevented by reasonable precautions. In such event, the non-performing Party is excused from further performance for as long as such circumstances prevail and the Party continues to use its best efforts to recommence performance and mitigate the impact of its non-performance. Any Party so delayed shall promptly notify the other Party and describe the circumstances causing the delay. If an event substantially prevents or delays performance of the Services necessary for the performance of critical Gap functions for more than *, Gap, at its sole discretion, may procure Services from an alternate source, and Supplier shall be liable for payment for such Services. If Supplier is unable to perform the Services within *, Gap, at its sole discretion, may (i) terminate any portion of the Agreement affected by the nonperformance and the charges shall be equitably adjusted; or (ii) terminate the Agreement as of the date specified by Gap in a written notice to Supplier without payment of Termination Charges as set forth in Exhibit C.6 (Termination for Convenience Fees). Gap shall be responsible for the Stranded Costs arising from the termination. Supplier shall not have the right to any additional payments from Gap as a result of any force majeure occurrence. The existence of a force majeure event shall not relieve Supplier of its obligation to use its best efforts to execute Gaps business continuity plan and disaster and recovery plan for Gap, or to pursue its best practice processes, including, as to stores, Severity 1 response obligations to restore Gap operations, except to the extent that execution of the business continuity plan, disaster and recovery plan, or operation restoration activity is itself prevented by the force majeure event.
