Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company does not warrant that the Service will be uninterrupted, virus-free or error-free, however the Company shall use reasonably commercial endeavours to correct any interruptions, viruses or errors and to limit any suspensions of the Service and such correction or limitation shall be the User’s sole and exclusive remedy for any breach of the undertaking given by the Company at the start of this section 4.

Subscribers agree that if the Company has not received payment within this period, and without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of the Company, the Company may (a) without liability to the Subscriber, cancel the Subscriber’s subscription and disable the Subscriber’s account which may lead to the loss of any data associated with their subscription (b) charge interest, calculated on a daily basis, on any outstanding Fees at a rate of 2% per month and (c) charge the Subscriber for legal fees and reasonable collection costs arising from the Company’s efforts to collect any outstanding Fees.
