CYS will act lenient towards the hours in case of fair use by The Customer. For reasons of clarity: CYS may, at its discretion, decide to perform extra hours on Managed Services without charging The Customer or decide not to deduct available hours for Managed Services performed. However, The Customer cannot derive any (future) rights from a decision by CYS to deduct or not to deduct hours for Managed Services.

3. In case The Customer has not used all the available hours for Managed Services during a one year period, these hours will not pass on to the next year. For reasons of clarity: this means that each year The Customer is entitled to the same amount of hours for Managed Services and hours which are not used during a certain year will expire.

These additional Terms and Conditions, which may be obtained from CYS, form part of and incorporated by reference into any Agreement.

6. Each provision of these Terms and Conditions is a separately enforceable provision. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions are determined to be or becomes unenforceable, invalid, or contrary to law, such provision will be reformed to the minimum extent necessary for these Terms and Conditions to remain in full effect. Such modification shall seek to be as similar in nature, scope, and tenor as the original provision. In view of such invalidity or unenforceability, the other unaffected provisions shall remain in full force.
