Neither the non-performance nor the late performance of its obligations by either party will constitute a default by that party with respect to its contractual obligations, to the extent that the delay or non-performance results from a situation of force majeure (e.g., natural disasters, war, riots, civil unrest, fire, epidemic, pandemic) or other circumstances beyond that party's reasonable control such as technical problems that cannot be attributed to Highr. Computer viruses and hacker attacks against computer systems are considered force majeure, provided reasonable security measures have been taken.

10.6. Entire agreement. Unless a separate agreement provides otherwise, the Contractual Documentation, as described in Section 3.1, contains the entire agreement between you and Highr with respect to the subject matter of these GTCs and supersedes any and all agreements or understandings regarding the subject matter of these GTCs that may have been entered into between you and Highr prior to the effective date of these GTCs.
