If during such 30 days period, Customer notifies Sequr of a breach of this Professional Services warranty, Customer's sole and exclusive remedy and Sequr's sole obligation for a breach of this warranty will be the correction or re-performance of the nonconforming Professional Services. If after repeated efforts, neither remedy is reasonably commercially available, Sequr will refund Customer, the Fees paid for the non-compliant Professional Services.

8.2 Exclusions from ObligationsSequr will have no obligation under this Section 8 for any infringement or misappropriation to the extent that it arises out of or is based upon (i) use of an Sequr System in combination with other products or services if such infringement or misappropriation would not have arisen but for such combination; (ii) use of an Sequr System by Customer for purposes not intended or outside the scope of the license granted to Customer; (iii) Customer's failure to use an Sequr System in accordance with instructions provided by Sequr, if the infringement or misappropriation would not have occurred but for such failure; or (iv) any modification of an Sequr System not made or authorized in writing by Sequr where such infringement or misappropriation would not have occurred absent such modification.

12.12 Changes to this AgreementWe may update or modify this Agreement from time to time, including any referenced policies and other documents. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you (by, for example, sending an email to the billing or technical contact you designate in the applicable Order, posting on our blog, through your Sequr account). If we modify the Agreement during your Subscription Term, the modified version will be effective upon your next renewal of a Subscription Term. In this case, if you object to the updated Agreement, as your exclusive remedy, you may choose not to renew, including cancelling any terms set to auto-renew no later than the renewal date. For the avoidance of doubt, any Order is subject to the version of the Agreement in effect at the time of the Order.
