Such enhancements may include, without limitation, modifications to the Software that increase its speed, efficiency, and/or ease of operation. Within a reasonable time after being given written notice thereof, DTPL will correct inherent material errors in the Software that are not caused by the Client's misuse, improper use, alteration or damage of the Software.
