If OT is unable to remedy a material issue, You may terminate Your subscription upon five (5) days’ written notice and OT shall refund a pro rata portion of Your prepaid subscription Fees for the period following the effective date of termination. The remedy specified in this Section 5 of the SLA is Your sole and exclusive remedy for a failure by OT to meet the Service Level Target or for any other claim related to unavailability of the Services.
