Unless specified otherwise in your Order, the Subscription Fees are payable in full until you terminate your Product subscription in accordance with Section 9.

9.1 Subscription Term and Renewal: Your subscription for the Product(s) is for the period described in your Order (“Subscription Term”). Unless you notify us in writing that you no longer wish to receive the Product(s) at the end of your current Subscription Term, your subscription will automatically renew for a further Subscription Term equivalent in length to the then-expiring Subscription Term, up to a maximum renewal period of 1 year. For example, if your subscription is monthly, it will automatically renew for a further month at the end of each month, but if your initial Subscription Term is 3 years, it will renew for further 1 year periods. Unless otherwise provided for in your Order, the Subscription Fees for any subsequent Subscription Term will be our standard Subscription Fee for the applicable Product at the time the renewed Subscription Term starts. You acknowledge and agree that, unless you terminate your subscription in accordance with this Section 9, the Subscription Fees for subsequent Subscription Terms will be charged automatically to your credit card or otherwise invoiced to you if you pay through a different accepted payment method.
9.2 Suspension and Termination by Us: In addition to suspension for late or non-payment of Fees, we may immediately suspend your access to and use of the Products, or cease providing you with Professional Services, if you or any of your Users violate these Terms. We will notify you of any activities that violate these Terms and, at our sole discretion, may provide you with a period of 15 days to cure or cease such activities. If we provide with a cure period and you do not cure or cease such activities within the above cure period, or if we believe that your breach of these Terms cannot be cured, you must immediately cease using the Products and Deliverables, and your account and access to the Products will be terminated. We may terminate your subscription or any Order for Professional Services immediately on notice to you if we reasonably believe that the Products or Deliverables are being used by you or your Users in violation of applicable law.
9.3 Termination by You for Cause: You may terminate your subscription or Order for Professional Services if we materially breach these Terms and have not cured that breach within 30 days after you have provided written notice to us of the breach.
9.4 Termination by You without Cause: If you no longer wish to use the Products, you can terminate your subscription without cause by providing us with at least 30 days prior written notice at [email protected] and by signing a cancellation form that we will provide to you.
9.5 Effect of Termination: Following expiry or termination of these Terms, the following provisions will apply:
(a) Charges: If you terminate your subscription prior to the end of your current Subscription Term or we terminate your subscription under Section 9.2, you must immediately pay any outstanding amounts that you owe to us and you will not be entitled to receive a refund for any Fees that you prepaid to us for Products for the period following the effective date of termination. For example, if your annual Product subscription starts on January 1st and you decide to terminate your subscription on August 1st, you will not receive a refund for the Fees you paid for the period from August 1st until December 31st. If you terminate your subscription for cause, we will refund you any prepaid Subscription Fees covering the remainder of the Subscription Term after the effective date of termination. If you terminate an Order for Professional Services before those services are complete, you will immediately pay us for all work performed and Deliverables provided up to the date of termination.
(b) Data Export: We strongly recommend that you export all Your Data from any Cloud Services before you terminate your subscription or the subscription expires. Following such termination, Your Data will be retained in our Cloud Services for a period of 30 days from such termination within which you may contact us to export Your Data (“Data Retention Period”), after which Your Data will be deleted in the normal course of operation and will not be recoverable. You may request us to export Your Data that is stored in the Cloud Services to you at any time before the end of the Data Retention Period.
9.6 Survival: The respective rights and obligations of you and us under the provisions of Sections 3, 4, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 will survive termination of these Terms.

10.1 Account Credentials: If you choose, or are provided with, a user identification code, password or any other piece of information as part of our security procedures, you must treat that information as confidential. We reserve the right to disable any user identification code, account or password, whether chosen by you or allocated by us, at any time if, in our reasonable opinion, you have failed to comply with any of the provisions of these Terms.
10.2 Confidential Information: As used in these Terms, “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed, accessed or obtained by one party (“receiving party”) by or on behalf of the other party (“disclosing party”), whether verbally, electronically or otherwise and either before or after the effective date of these Terms, which is: (a) identified by the disclosing party as confidential at the time of disclosure; or (b) that a reasonable person would consider confidential due to its nature and circumstances of disclosure, and includes any information generated by the receiving party to the extent that it contains, reflects, or is derived from Confidential Information. Our Confidential Information includes, without limitation, our Products and Deliverables. Confidential Information does not include information which the receiving party can document: (i) was in the possession of or known by it without an obligation of confidentiality prior to receipt from the disclosing party; (ii) is or becomes general public knowledge through no fault or acts of the receiving party; (iii) is or becomes lawfully available to the receiving party from a third party without an obligation of confidentiality; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party without use of any Confidential Information.

The receiving party will protect Confidential Information of the disclosing party by using the same degree of care (but no less than a reasonable degree of care) as it uses to safeguard its own confidential or proprietary information of a similar nature from unauthorized use, disclosure, or dissemination, including, without limitation, securing all servers, drives or media on which the Products are installed or maintained. The receiving party agrees to restrict access to Confidential Information of the disclosing party to only its employees, agents or contractors who: (a) require such access in the course of their assigned duties and responsibilities; (b) have been informed of the receiving party’s obligations of confidence; and (c) have agreed in writing to preserve the confidentiality of such information under terms and conditions no less restrictive than those set out in these Terms. The receiving party will enforce such obligations unless otherwise authorized in writing by the disclosing party. Each party agrees to immediately notify the other party of any authorized access to or disclosure of Confidential Information.
10.4 Permitted Disclosure: In the event that any Confidential Information of the disclosing party is required to be disclosed pursuant to any bona fide law, regulation or court order, the receiving party will give the disclosing party immediate notice of such obligation and will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the disclosing party with an opportunity to take such steps as it desires to challenge or contest such disclosure or seek a protective order. Thereafter, the receiving party may disclose the Confidential Information, but only to the extent required by applicable law and subject to any applicable protective order.
10.5 Security of Your Data: We use appropriate physical, technological and organizational measures to protect Your Data. The measures we use are designed to provide a level of security appropriate to the risk of processing Your Data.
