If the Offering Identification applicable to the Consulting Services sets out Working Days, time consumed by medical or holiday leave will not be counted towards any pre-purchased Working Days, however, medical or holiday leave will not extend the Term for which Working Days are applicable. If the Offering Identification applicable to the Consulting Services sets out performance on a time and materials basis, Unity will invoice, and you will pay, time consumed by medical or holiday leave.

At your request, Unity will furnish you with copies of receipts and other customary documentation for any expenses for which Unity requests reimbursement hereunder.
4. Working Days
If the Offering Identification sets out Working Days, metrics and/or timelines, you acknowledge and agree that these are estimates and that such estimates may increase where Unity ascertains that additional work is required or where there are any delays caused by you.
If you have purchased a prepaid pool of Working Days, Unity will determine, in its sole discretion, the number of Working Days required to fulfill each of your requests; and (c) as permitted by applicable law, the pool of Working Days must be consumed within twelve (12) months of purchase, or prior to the end of the Term, whichever is sooner. Any Working Days not so scheduled will otherwise expire.
If you require hours in addition to the hours provided for standard Consulting Services or a mutually agreed upon in the Statement of Work, such additional hours must be requested by you and approved by Unity in writing in advance (“Additional Hours”). If approved, Additional Hours will be charged on a pro-rata basis and uplifted by 200% on weekends and public holidays in the country the Services are being delivered from and 150% on Working Days.

Accordingly, if you do not contact Unity to schedule Consulting Services at least thirty (30) days before the end of the year, you will forfeit such Consulting Services for that year.
The scheduling details (e.g., date, time, location) for each Consulting Services engagement must be mutually agreed between you and Unity and is subject to availability of Unity Personnel with the relevant experience and skill set. The parties each agree to arrive promptly at the scheduled time and location.

In the event you fail to notify Unity of your intent to reschedule Consulting Services with thirty (30) calendar days prior to the date such Consulting Services are scheduled to begin, you will forfeit such Consulting Services.
Either you or Unity may request to modify a material provision of a Statement of Work, Order Form, or applicable Offering Identification by submitting a written Change Request (email sufficient).
You agree to provide Unity with timely updates of any changes in requirements, delivery schedule or other project-related information that may impact Unity’s delivery of Consulting Services. Upon receipt of your Change Request, Unity will estimate the financial and schedule impact, if any. The parties will review these estimates to determine whether the Change Request and its impact are mutually acceptable. If the parties agree on the Change Request, Unity will attach the final Change Request to the applicable Offering Identification. In the event such Change Request (a) expands the scope of the services offered or (b) increases or decreases the fees due for the Consulting Services, the Change Request shall be documented in an amendment signed by both parties.
In addition to your confidentiality obligations set out in the Terms, you or Unity (as the “Disclosing Party”) may disclose or make available Confidential Information to the other party (as the “Receiving Party”) in connection with these Terms. The Receiving Party agrees not to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information to any third party without the Disclosing Party’s prior written consent, other than to the Receiving Party’s employees, agents and consultants who need to know such information to carry out the purposes contemplated by these Terms and who are bound in writing by restrictions regarding disclosure and use of such information comparable to and no less restrictive than those set forth herein.
The Receiving Party agrees to use at least the same degree of care to prevent unauthorized use and disclosure of Confidential Information as the Receiving Party uses with respect to its own confidential information of like importance (but in no event less than a reasonable degree of care).
The Receiving Party may use or disclose Confidential Information to the extent (a) approved by the Disclosing Party in writing or (b) the Receiving Party is legally compelled to disclose such Confidential Information provided, however, that prior to any such compelled disclosure, the Receiving Party shall give the Disclosing Party reasonable advance notice of any such disclosure and shall cooperate with the Disclosing Party in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Confidential Information.
At any time at the Disclosing Party’s request, the Receiving Party shall promptly return to the Disclosing Party or destroy all materials (in written, electronic or other form) containing the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, including any copies and extracts thereof, and so certify in writing to the Disclosing Party. It is not a breach of the foregoing obligation to the extent the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information is contained in an electronic file created pursuant to the Receiving Party’s routine backup or archiving procedures if such file is not easily deleted and is not generally accessible beyond the need for disaster recovery or similar operations.
You acknowledge and agree to perform proper testing in your environment when using such Deliverable.
