In the event of any delays in provision of such assistance, Flow XO may adjust any Live Date, timetable or delivery schedule as reasonably necessary and Flow XO shall not be liable for any costs or losses incurred as a result of such delays (and the Customer shall promptly following written demand reimburse Flow XO in respect of any costs or losses incurred as a direct result).

In particular, help and support will not be provided, and Flow XO will not otherwise have any liability, if: (i) the Customer is in breach of the Contract; or (ii) any defect or issue arises directly or indirectly from:
6.4.1. the Customer’s failure, error, negligence or breach of the Contract;
6.4.2. the Customer’s introduction of any Viruses or any cookies, web-tags, code or script which have not been provided by Flow XO;

If the Customer wishes to proceed with the change, it will confirm this in writing to Flow XO who will issue an amended Order Confirmation.
7.3. If the Customer purchases the Services on the basis of an annual subscription and requests a downgrade or upgrade to the Services part-way through the Initial Subscription Term or any Renewal Period (as applicable), such fees shall be prorated for the remainder of the Initial Subscription Term or then current Renewal Period (as applicable) unless stated otherwise in the relevant Order Confirmation.
7.4. If the Customer purchases the Services on the basis of a monthly subscription and requests an upgrade to the Services, the new fees shall be payable with effect from the following month after the upgrade request is received unless stated otherwise in the relevant Order Confirmation.
