BASIS OF CONTRACT

2.4.1. without limiting or affecting any other right or remedy available to us, we shall have the right to suspend performance of the Services until you remedy the Client Default, and to rely on the Client Default to relieve us from the performance of any of our obligations in each case to the extent the Client Default prevents or delays our performance of any of our obligations;
