If Banzai is unable to make available such change within a reasonable period, which shall not exceed ninety (90) days, Customer may terminate the applicable Agreement with respect only to those Services which cannot be provided by Banzai without the use of the objected-to new Subprocessor by providing written notice to Banzai.
