Performance: Luxurynsight will use its reasonable endeavours to make the Services available to the Client and its Authorised Users at all times. Luxurynsight reserves the right to conduct essential Website and Platform maintenance, software upgrades and other works necessary to maintain the efficient provision of the Services, which may result in the Website and/or the Platform becoming temporarily unavailable.

The Client may, as an alternative remedy for the unavailability of the Services, request in writing that Luxurynsight instead provides a pro rata refund of the Fee, considering the period of unavailability in excess of 48 hours. Such pro rata refund shall be limited to the Fee of the unavailable Services and does not apply to the total Fee of all Services. Luxurynsight’s agreement to such request shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed on condition that the Client makes its request within a reasonable time of the occurrence of the unavailability.
