The estimated shipment date is based on the working conditions applicable at the time the Order is concluded and on the punctual delivery of the materials ordered by Manufacturer for the performance of the work. Should a delay rise for which Manufacturer is not responsible, as a result of a change in the aforementioned working conditions or because materials ordered in time for the performance of the work are not delivered on time, the shipment date shall be extended as required and Manufacturer will not liable for such delay.
