Any expenses for third-party services are your responsibility.

Also, Microsoft has announced that Windows 10 will reach end of support on October 14, 2025, at which time our technology department will no longer be able to support Windows 10. Please consider upgrading to Windows 11 before that time to avoid any support-related disruptions.
