The performance of our services may be affected by these factors.

The Affiliate agrees that they may not request any additional invoice with a Federal Taxpayer Registry (“R.F.C.”) regarding their services as an AFFILIATE and must notify us if their R.F.C. changes or, for legal persons, if they change their business name. This self-billing procedure will remain in effect during the term of this Agreement.
