9. The liability of MC-S in respect of imputable failure to perform the Agreement shall arise only if the Client gives MC-S immediate and proper notice of default in writing, setting a reasonable term for clearing the failure, and MC-S continues to fail imputably in the performance of its obligations even after that term. The notice of default must contain as detailed a description of the failure as possible, so that MC-S is able to respond adequately.
