12. TERM AND TERMINATION
12.1 Term of Agreement. This Agreement commences on the date you first accept it and continues until all of your subscriptions for Services have expired or have been terminated.
12.2 Term of Purchased Subscriptions. The term of each subscription for Paid Services shall be as specified in the applicable Order Form. Except as otherwise specified in an Order Form, subscriptions for Paid Services will automatically renew for additional periods equal to the expiring subscription term or one year (whichever is shorter), unless either party gives the other notice of non-renewal at least 30 days before the end of the relevant subscription term. The per-unit pricing during any renewal term will increase by up to 7% above the applicable pricing in the prior term, unless we provide you notice of different pricing at least thirty (30) days prior to the applicable renewal term. Except as expressly provided in the applicable Order Form, renewal of promotional or one-time priced subscriptions will be at our applicable list price in effect at the time of the applicable renewal. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, any renewal in which subscription volume for any Services has decreased from the prior term will result in re-pricing at renewal without regard to the prior term’s per-unit pricing.
12.3 Termination. A party may terminate this Agreement for cause (a) upon thirty (30) days written notice to the other party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, or (b) if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors.
12.4 Refund or Payment upon Termination. If this Agreement is terminated by you in accordance with Section 12.3, we will refund you any prepaid Fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms after the effective date of termination. If this Agreement is terminated by us in accordance with Section 12.3, you will pay any unpaid Fees covering the remainder of the term of all Order Forms. In no event will termination relieve you of your obligation to pay any Fees payable to us for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
12.5 Your Data Portability and Deletion. After the effective date of termination or expiration of this Agreement, we will have no obligation to maintain or provide you any of your Data, and as provided in the Documentation may thereafter delete or destroy all copies of your Data in our systems or otherwise in our possession or control, unless legally prohibited.
