Approval of Materials. At Company’s request, the parties shall mutually approve any materials for inclusion in the Services, provided that, the Purchaser offers timely and prompt approvals.

Timely Purchaser feedback is essential in order for Company to maintain agreed project schedules for Purchaser and its other clients and Purchaser’s failure to provide any requested timely feedback will excuse any resulting delay in performance. These timelines for feedback may be shortened by Company if necessary to meet the Purchaser’s delivery expectations.

Unfortunately, when a client cancels an appointment with without giving Company enough advance notice, it prevents Company from being able to perform services for its other clients.
