11.7 Notwithstanding any other right under the Agreement to alter the Charges, Cre8tive IT Solutions reserves the right to increase the Charges in the event that the Customer’s use of the Services (including but not limited to any significant change which the Customer advises to Cre8tive IT Solutions it expects to make in the average monthly volume of transmissions of data by use of the Services under Clause 7.4.3) results in a material increase in the level of storage and/or other hosting costs from those reasonably anticipated. Cre8tive IT Solutions shall give the Customer fair and reasonable notice of seeking to invoke such a ‘fair usage policy’ in order to provide an opportunity to the Customer to return usage to reasonable levels before any increase in Charges shall take effect.
