    2. Charges will be calculated based on records supplied to StarHub by the Third Party.

    4. StarHub will send you a bill at monthly intervals. However, StarHub may send you bills at such intervals and on such dates as StarHub deems appropriate. All Charges are due as soon as the bill is issued. Each bill must be settled by the payment date set out in it. Unless otherwise stated in the bill or elsewhere, all Charges are payable in Singapore dollars. In the absence of fraud or manifest error, subject to Clause 6.5 below, StarHub may rely on each bill as conclusive evidence against you of the accuracy, completeness and truth of all matters stated in it. You are responsible for paying all Charges without any counterclaim, deduction, set off or withholding.
    5.
