8.9. Waiver. No term or provision of these Terms will be considered waived by SAIM, and no breach consented to by SAIM, unless such waiver or consent is in writing signed on behalf of SAIM. No consent to or waiver of a breach of these Terms by SAIM, whether express or implied, will constitute SAIM's consent to or waiver of any other, different, or subsequent breach of these Terms.
8.10. Force Majeure. SAIM shall not be liable for any failure or delay in the performance of its obligations under these Terms to the extent such failure or delay or both is caused, directly or indirectly, by any reason beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to, by fire, flood, earthquake, elements of nature or acts of God, acts of state, strikes, acts of war, terrorism, riots, civil disorders, rebellions or revolutions; quarantines, embargoes and other similar governmental action.
