Neovation will use reasonable efforts to schedule such maintenance between 1:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. EST. In the event such maintenance is scheduled to occur outside of such period or will result in a significant change to the user experience, Neovation will, to the extent practical, endeavor to provide three (3) days prior notice of the maintenance to Partner and indicate the nature of changes. Otherwise, no advance notice will be given.

SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO THE ABOVE EXCLUSION MAY NOT APPLY TO CLIENT.

In any litigation, the prevailing party shall be reimbursed reasonable court costs and attorneys' fees.
