LANIS will make reasonable commercial efforts to electronically notify Subscriber of any significant changes.
12. AVAILABILITY OF INTERFACES:
Subscriber understands that Subscriber’s access to Service Providers through the Interfaces may be limited or interrupted from time to time, due to updates, maintenance, and repairs of such Interfaces by LANIS and/or Service Providers, and due to losses or interruption of access to the Interfaces due to causes beyond the control of LANIS, including, but not limited to, failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links, Internet slow-downs or failures, and unforeseen hardware or communication problems.

In the event Subscriber implements an inter-company cost recovery solution in connection with Software licensed, Subscriber is required to: (a) remain in compliance with Section 2 (Grant of License) of this Agreement – the number of Software seats distributed to Subscriber’s employees cannot exceed the number of seats licensed to Subscriber; (b) inform its employees that there is no Software ownership transfer in connection with its cost recovery program; (c) offer its licensed Software seats to its employees at a price not to exceed the cost LANIS charges for the Software; and (d) use the words “LANIS Software Cost Recovery” whenever providing explanation of its cost recovery program so as to avoid confusing Subscriber’s collection of monies for the Software with a reselling of the Software. Subscriber remains the Subscriber of all Software Seats used by its employees, and thus, remains obligated to all of the terms of licensing set forth in this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, as stated in Section 3 of this Agreement (License Restrictions), Subscriber is restricted from reselling the Software or giving the impression of being a reseller. The inter-company cost recovery solution permitted as set forth in this Section is intended to allow Subscriber to recoup some of its Software costs – it is not intended as a profit-making venture for Subscriber.
