downtime, except when circumstances beyond the control of BZMM or its Supplier prevent either BZMM or its Supplier (as the context requires)
from doing so. You also agree that BZMM or its Supplier may also be required to suspend the Services, or disconnect or deny you access to the
Services, in accordance with clause 12.1.2.
