    i. Scheduled Downtime (Service Provider will issue a notice advising of such Scheduled Downtime).

    ii. The Customer’s failure to perform its obligations under the Agreement that affect the performance of the Service Provider’s System.

    iii. Factors outside the Service Provider’s control including a Force Majeure Event.
