- 2.5.6 if any of the audits referred to in clause 2.5.5 reveal that access to any Authorised User’s account has been provided to any individual who is not an Authorised User (save where the Authorised User lacks capacity and access is made by an individual with due authority to act on the Authorised User’s behalf), then without prejudice to the Supplier’s other rights, the Customer shall promptly disable such accounts and the Customer shall use its reasonable endeavours to ensure that such access does not reoccur; and
- 2.5.7 if any of the audits referred to in clause 2.5.5 reveal that the Customer has underpaid Subscription Fees to the Supplier, then without prejudice to the Supplier’s other rights, the Customer shall pay to the Supplier an amount equal to such underpayment as calculated in accordance with the prices set out in the Order Form within 10 Business Days of the date of the relevant audit.
