12.1   Term and Automatic Renewal.  The Term of this Agreement begins on the effective date of the Subscription Term when Customer purchases the Services through the Syncspace.Live e-commerce store and ends on the date of termination, cancellation or expiration of the Subscription Term.  At the end of the then-current Subscription Term, each Subscription Plan will automatically renew for an additional one-month period. Customer may cancel the Subscription under Section 12.2 below unless: (a) Customer provides written notice of non-renewal and cancellation under Section 12.2 to Syncspace.Live on or before the expiration date of the then-current Subscription Term, or (b) Syncspace.Live provides written notice of non-renewal to Customer at least 90 days before such expiration date.  Customers must submit notice of non-renewal or cancellation to [email protected].  Unless another payment method has been specified, Syncspace.Live will charge Customer’s payment information on file for the Subscription Plan for the renewal term.

12.2    Termination for Cause.  Syncspace.Live may terminate the Agreement or any affected Services by notice to Customer or Users (i) if Customer or User materially breaches their obligations under the Agreement and, if the breach is capable of cure, fails to cure the breach within 30 days of the date of notice of breach; or (ii) upon Syncspace ceasing to operate in the ordinary course of business, making an assignment for benefit of creditors, or becoming the subject of any bankruptcy, liquidation, dissolution, or similar proceeding that is not resolved within 60 days of filing. Material breach by Customer or User includes the following: (1) Customer or User is unable to resolve any issue leading to suspension of Customer or User’s Services to Syncspace.Live’s reasonable satisfaction within 30 days following notice of suspension, or (2) Customer or User’s use of the Services is in violation of Applicable Law.  Customer will not be entitled to any refunds of any payments to Syncspace.Live, pro rata or otherwise.  Customer and User acknowledge and agree that Syncspace.Live shall not be liable for costs, fees, damages, lost profits, or the like, as a result of termination or any reason whatsoever under this Section 12.2.

12.2   Cancellation.  Customer may cancel the Account and any affiliated User Accounts and terminate this Agreement at any time through the Customer Account.  Upon such cancellation, Customer shall pay to Syncspace.Live all undisputed amounts due and payable hereunder, if any.  Customer will not be entitled to any refunds of any payments to Syncspace, pro rata or otherwise.

12.3   Outstanding Fees.  Termination or cancellation shall not relieve Customer of the obligation to pay any fees accrued or payable to Syncspace.Live prior to the effective date of termination.

12.4   Return and Retention of Customer Data.  Within sixty (60) days after the effective date of termination, Customer, and Users with Accounts affiliated with Customer’s Account, may download and close their Account(s).  After such 60-day period, Syncspace.Live shall have no obligation to maintain or provide access to Customer Data and shall thereafter, delete all Customer Data in its systems.

13.4   Waiver and Cumulative Remedies.  No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right under these Terms and Conditions shall constitute a waiver of that right.  Other than as expressly stated herein, the remedies provided herein are in addition to, and not exclusive of, any other remedies of a party at law or in equity.

13.5   Severability.  If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted so as best to accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions shall remain in effect.

13.6   Assignment. Customer may not assign any of its rights or obligations hereunder, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of the Syncspace.Live (not to be unreasonably withheld).

13.8   Governing Law and Jurisdiction.   These Terms and Conditions will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws.  Subject to section 13.7, and only after the Parties have attempted the mediation proceedings contemplated therein, the Parties irrevocably and unconditionally submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario with respect to any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with these Terms and Conditions that is not resolved by mediation.  Customer agrees that each Party may bring claims against the other only in its individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class or representative proceeding.
