The Provider shall bear no responsibility what so ever for any defaults, malfunctions, interruptions or impossibility to use the Services resulting from such changes.
The Customer may change the parameters of the Services ordered using the on line tools available on the Provider’s Website. Such changes will not affect the rest of the Agreement and the present terms especially will continue to govern access to and use of the Services by the Customer.
The Provider may update these terms from time to time. The most current version will be posted on the Provider’s Website.
