3. Pricing And Payment
3.1. Unless otherwise agreed, all Licences are charged upfront according to the payment schedule as set out in the Specific Terms and Conditions. The amount charged upfront (Credit Bundle) is calculated based on the estimated (expected) annual spend.

3.3. The Service Provider has at all times the right to increase the amount charged upfront and the corresponding annual spend when the actual usage is higher than the estimated annual spend.
3.4. The Credit Bundle must be used within the Licence Period to which it corresponds.

3.9. The Service Provider retains the right to claim for higher damages provided that there is evidence of higher actual loss.
3.10. Service Provider may suspend the Services in case the Customer fails to pay an invoice on its due date, provided that Service Provider has notified Customer of its intention to suspend the Services via registered mail, whereby the Customer is granted remedial period of 8 days to pay the outstanding amounts (including possible late payment fees and penalties).

New price = initial price * (0.2 + 0.8 * (New index / Initial index))
For which the following definitions apply:

If the Parties do not reach an amicable agreement within thirty (30) Days of the request to amend the Agreement, the requesting Party has the right to terminate the Agreement by sending a registered letter with a notice of thirty (30) Days and this without any compensation due.

If such performance is delayed or prevented for a period exceeding sixty (60) consecutive Days, either Party shall have the right to terminate the Agreement or any part thereof, forthwith and without penalty.
9.3. The Customer shall not be liable to pay the fees for any of the Services, which the Service Provider is unable to perform due to Force Majeure.
