Omny reserves the right to change these Terms at any time, effective upon the posting of modified Terms. If a revision meaningfully reduces your rights, we will notify you of the change by sending an email to the address we have on record for you and via a notice on the Hosted Service itself. If we modify these Terms during the Initial Term and we have agreed to fixed obligations for you for the Initial Term in an Enterprise Agreement, the modified version of these Terms in respect of those fixed obligations will be effective at the end of the Initial Term.
