F. We will make commercially reasonable efforts to fulfill Our obligations under this Agreement. Certain causes and events that are out of Our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event(s)”) may result in Our inability to perform under this Agreement. If we are unable to perform Our obligations, in whole or in part, due to a Force Majeure Event, then Our obligations shall be suspended to the extent made necessary by such Force Majeure Event, and in no event shall we be liable to You for damages caused by any Force Majeure Event. Force Majeure Events include, but are not limited to, acts of God; fire; war; flood; earthquake; acts of terrorism; acts of any governmental authority; accidents; strikes; labor troubles; shortages in supply; changes in laws, rules, orders, guidance, or regulations of any governmental authority; epidemic, pandemic or other infectious disease, virus or similar health related outbreak; or any other cause beyond Our reasonable control.

G. You must notify the Administrator as soon as a problem is discovered. The Administrator will accept service requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. The Administrator’s website will always be available to take Service requests. If you wish to call the Administrator, the contact information to make a service request is provided on Your Order Confirmation. We will determine if a repair constitutes an emergency (generally issues which make the home uninhabitable – and not related to a Force Majeure Event) and will make reasonable efforts to expedite emergency Service.

H. You will pay the Trade Call Fee, if applicable and as listed on Your Enrollment Form, or the actual costs of Services, whichever is less, unless You are exempted from such payment by the Plan You have selected. The Trade Call Fee or costs of Services will be due at the time the Authorized Repair Technician arrives at the Eligible Facilities. Other than the Trade Call Fee, this Agreement does not require the payment of any deductible. If a Trade Call Fee is applicable, it shall be for each visit by an Authorized Repair Technician to the Eligible Facilities. The Trade Call Fee, as applicable, applies to each call dispatched and scheduled, including, but not limited to, those calls wherein coverage is deemed to be excluded or denied under the Agreement. The Trade Call Fee, as applicable, will be due if You fail to be present at the scheduled time or in the event that You cancel a Service call at a time when the Authorized Repair Technician is already on the way to the Eligible Facility. Failure to pay any applicable Trade Call Fee will result in suspension of coverage. Coverage will be reinstated at the time the Trade Call Fee is paid; however, there will be no modifications to the Coverage Period.

I. If You smell gas or suspect there is a gas leak, leave the premises immediately and call Your gas company from outside.
