2.1 GENERAL These conditions shall apply to all CARRIAGE of CARGO, including all services incidental thereto, performed by or on behalf of CARRIER; provided however that if such CARRIAGE is International Carriage as defined in the APPLICABLE CONVENTION such CARRIAGE shall be subject to the provisions of the APPLICABLE CONVENTION and to these conditions to the extent that these conditions are not inconsistent with the provisions of such
APPLICABLE CONVENTION. No provision of these Conditions of Carriage shall be deemed unenforceable if it is subject to an interpretation that would render it enforceable. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that any provision of these Conditions of Carriage is unenforceable, in whole or in part, (a) such a finding will not disturb the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Conditions of Carriage, and (b) the court shall have the authority to modify them in order to render it enforceable and to effect the original intent of the Parties to the fullest extent permitted by law.
2.2 APPLICABLE LAWS AND REGULATIONS To the extent not in conflict with 2.1 all CARRIAGE and other services performed by CARRIER are subject to:
2.2.1 applicable laws (including national laws implementing a Convention or extending the rules of the APPLICABLE CONVENTION to CARRIAGE which is not International Carriage as defined in the APPLICABLE CONVENTION) government regulations, orders and requirements; 2.2.2 these conditions and other applicable rules, regulations of CARRIER.
2.4 GRATUITOUS CARRIAGE To the extent permitted by law with respect to gratuitous CARRIAGE, CARRIER reserves the right to exclude the application of all or any part of these conditions.
2.5 CHARTERS With respect to CARRIAGE of CARGO performed pursuant to a charter agreement with CARRIER, these conditions shall apply to such agreement except that CARRIER reserves the right to exclude the application of all or any part of these conditions and, in case of divergence between the applicable provisions of these conditions and the conditions contained or referred to in the charter agreement, the latter shall prevail and the SHIPPER, by accepting CARRIAGE pursuant to a charter agreement, whether or not concluded with the SHIPPER, agrees to be bound by the applicable terms thereof.
2.6 CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE These conditions are subject to change without notice except to the extent otherwise provided by applicable law or government regulations or order; provided however that no such change shall apply to a contract of CARRIAGE after the date of conclusion of the contract of CARRIAGE or after the date the rate or charge for the CARRIAGE has been entered in the SHIPMENT RECORD.
