7 If Membr’s performance of its obligations in relation to the MPay Service are prevented or delayed by any act or omission of the Customer and/or the Payment Provider, then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy it may have, Membr shall be allowed an extension of time to perform its obligations equal to the delay caused by the Customer and/or Payment Provider (and Membr shall not held liable for any failure to provide the MPay Service as a result of such acts or omissions of the Customer and/or Payment Provider).
