If the customer fails to make payments for goods previously delivered, Clipper shall be entitled, at its option, to either postpone the delivery of an order or to cancel it, without being under an obligation to compensate for documented losses resulting from this. This does not entitle the customer to cancel the order.

In case Clipper intends to invoke any such changes, Clipper shall inform the customer thereof as soon as possible and no later than 21 days after the event has taken place.
