b. dies, is placed under guardianship or is dissolved,
c. fails to fulfil any of its obligations under the law or these conditions,
d. fails to pay an invoice amount or part of it within the period set for it,
e. proceeds to discontinue or transfer its business or an important part thereof, including the contribution of its business to a company to be incorporated or already existing, or proceeds to change the objective of its business,
by the mere occurrence of one of the aforementioned circumstances, The Beach has the right either to dissolve the agreement, or to claim any amount owed by the client based on services provided by The Beach, immediately and without any warning or notice of default being required, all without prejudice to its right to compensation for costs, damages and interest.

For this relocation of the execution date, The Beach will charge 12.5% of the agreed amount as relocation costs.

13.3 If the client does not comply with Article 13.2, the cancellation conditions of Article 8 come into effect.
13.5. The party that believes it is (or will be) in force majeure shall immediately notify the other party.
