If Culture Amp limits or suspends the Services, we will give you reasonable advance notice so that you can plan around it. However, there may be some situations, such as security emergencies, where it may not be practicable for us to give you advance notice. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to narrow the scope and duration of the suspension or limitation as is needed to resolve the issue that prompted such action.
We may suspend your access to or use of the Services following thirty (30) days’ written notice if Customer is in material breach of this Agreement or any Service Order (including but not limited to Customer’s failure to pay Culture Amp the fees for the Services as set forth in a Service Order).
