If this has shown to be unfruitful, tangible result reserves the right to suspend the execution of the agreement and/or charge the extra costs resulting from the delay in accordance with the usual rates.

12.4. Furthermore, the obligation of secrecy does not apply insofar as publication is demanded by law, a binding judicial or governmental ruling or a professional duty.

2. the other party’s reputation is discredited to the extent that the other cannot be demanded to continue the relationship.
