Service Provider shall use reasonable efforts to meet any performance dates specified in the Order Confirmation, and any such dates shall be estimates only.
Customer shall cooperate with Service Provider in all matters relating to the Services; respond promptly to any Service Provider request to provide direction, information, approvals, authorizations or decisions that are reasonably necessary for Service Provider to perform Services in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement; and provide such customer materials or information as Service Provider may request to carry out the Services in a timely manner and ensure that such customer materials or information are complete and accurate in all material respects.
