5.3. Delivery of goods may be totally or partially suspended during any period in which it is prevented or hindered from such delivery by reason of any circumstances beyond its control (including but not limited to the default of any person firm of company engaged by the buyer) and such suspension shall not give rise to any claim by the Buyer against the Company nor shall it give the Buyer the right to terminate any agreement with the Company.
