Force Majeure

From our AT&T Residential Service agreement, a taste or two of reality:

“Force Majeure” means causes beyond our control that prevent or hinder the
delivery of any Service, such as
  • fire
  • flood
  • lightning
  • meteorological phenomena
  • earthquakes
  • volcanic action
  • power failures or blackouts
  • severe weather
  • explosions
  • wars or armed conflicts
  • national, state or local emergencies
  • civil disobedience
  • shortage of labor or materials
  • labor disputes, strikes, or other
    concerted acts of workers (whether of AT&T or others)
  • embargoes
  • acts of God
  • and acts of terrorism.
“You” means the person subscribing to the Services provided under this
Agreement.
