FedEx will have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that You may incur as a result of any Service Suspension. To the extent FedEx is able, FedEx will endeavor to provide You with email notice of any Service Suspension in accordance with the notice provisions set forth in Section 15 below and to post updates at www.fedex.com regarding resumption of access to the Portal and the Materials following any such suspension, but will have no liability for the manner in which FedEx may do so or if FedEx fails to do so.

Such changes may impact Your ability to access or use the FedEx Technology (e.g., changes are not backwards compatible). You may need to modify, at Your own expense, the Application and other of Your systems (hardware, software, networks, etc.) in order to continue using FedEx Technology. FedEx will announce a material change or discontinuance of FedEx Technology that You are using. FedEx will use commercially reasonable efforts to continue to provide the FedEx Technology in accordance with the FedEx API Versioning and Throttling Guide, or such successor guide or URL that FedEx may publish, unless FedEx determines in its reasonable judgment that: (a) FedEx cannot do so by law or by contract (including if there is a change in applicable law or contract) or (b) continuing to provide the impacted FedEx Technology could create a (i) security risk or (ii) a substantial economic or technical burden. FedEx will have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that You may incur as a result of any change, discontinuation or deprecation of FedEx Technology, even if such changes, discontinuation or deprecation is not in accordance with the FedEx API Versioning and Throttling Guide.
(c) From time to time, FedEx may limit, restrict or otherwise throttle Your access to and use of FedEx Technology (collectively, “Throttling”). FedEx will have no liability whatsoever for any damage, liabilities, losses (including any loss of data or profits) or any other consequences that You may incur as a result of any Throttling, even if Throttling is not in accordance with the FedEx API Versioning and Throttling Guide.
Section 10. Feedback.
