In the event a notice of dispute is not timely received, Company shall be deemed to have conclusively accepted the accuracy of Semasio’s calculation of fees and expenses under the applicable invoices and waives any further rights to challenge or dispute such compensation calculation. If the context so requires, the foregoing right may be undertaken by Semasio with respect to Company’s reporting as to fees and expenses.
