• Timely decision-making for the necessary project steps, as required; and

• Timely information about events that may have an impact on the Services.

The Client is solely responsible for providing correct and accurate information, documentation, and access. If the provision of Services is delayed due to the Client's failure to comply with its duty to cooperate or due to other circumstances for which the Client is responsible, the Client shall bear the disadvantages and additional costs incurred. In particular, in case the Client misses or cancels working sessions or comes unprepared, the working session or deliverable will be deemed to be delivered.

SalesPlaybook backs up the data on a regular basis. SalesPlaybook may subcontract third parties for all its obligations under the Agreement at its own expense unless explicitly agreed otherwise.
