C. The Responsibility of the Customer
The Customer agrees to provide the Company with any and all additional information in order to allow the Company to make any necessary amendments to the document in order to meet with, and satisfy the expectations of the Customer’s based on the service ordered or information initially supplied by the Customer at the point of ordering.
