Can the client claim for contractual penalty or damages caused by delay?

1. A claim by the client for contractual penalties and damages caused by delay is excluded with regard to the originally agreed dates if the conditions described under fig. 3 are met.

2. Whether the agreed contractual deadlines are automatically adapted to the changed circumstances and whether the adjusted deadlines/dates are therefore subject to contractual penalties without further ado depends in particular on the contract concluded and is therefore a question of the individual case. In any case, from the point of view of both parties, it is advisable to negotiate about a redefinition of the dates and the further changes caused by the disruption.
