12. Term and Termination
12.1 In order to ensure that you will not experience any interruption or loss of the Product Services, your Product Subscription includes an automatic renewal option by default, according to which, unless you cancel your Product Subscription prior to its expiration, the Product Subscription will automatically renew upon the end of the then-applicable Product Subscription Term, for a renewal period equal in time to the original Product Subscription Term (excluding extended periods) and, unless otherwise notified to you, at the same price (subject to applicable tax changes and excluding any discount or other promotional offer provided for the first Product Subscription Term unless indicated otherwise in the Agreement), thereby establishing a new Product Subscription Effective Date. Accordingly, unless either you or we cancel the Product Subscription prior to its expiration, we will attempt to charge you the applicable Product Subscription Fees upon or immediately prior to the expiration of the then-applicable Product Subscription Term. If you wish to avoid such auto-renewal, you shall cancel your Product Subscription, prior to its expiration, at any time through the Account settings or by contacting your MetricWorksâ€™ customer success manager by email (the â€œTerminationâ€). Except as expressly set forth in the Terms, in case you cancel your Product Subscription, during a Product Subscription Term, the Product Subscription will not renew for an additional period, but you will not be refunded or credited for any unused period within the Product Subscription Term.
12.2 Either Party may terminate the Agreement with immediate effect by written notice (with email being sufficient) to the other Party if (a) the other Party commits a material breach of the Terms and fails to remedy the breach (if remediable) within fourteen (14) days of receiving written notice to that effect specifying the breach and requiring it to be remedied. For the sake of clarity, any overdue invoice constitutes a material breach of the Agreement; (b) the other Party ceases to conduct its business operations; or (c) the other Party enters into a composition with its creditors, or goes into liquidation, or is dissolved, or adjudged insolvent, or is otherwise rendered incapable of performing its obligations under the Agreement without the consent of a third party.Â Â
12.3 We may suspend the License and any other licenses and rights granted to you in connection with the Terms (the â€œSuspensionâ€) at any time upon prior written notice (with email being sufficient) where we reasonably determine that (a) you are in material breach of the Terms; (b) any Campaign contains or links to content that is of an adult or explicit nature, offensive, indecent, harmful, threatening, defamatory, obscene, harassing, or otherwise unlawful; or (c) you, at any time, are conducting commercial activities that do not fully comply with all applicable local, state, federal, and foreign laws, rules, and regulations.
12.4 Any obligation that, by its nature, would survive the Termination including but not limited to sections 6 to 12 shall survive the Termination.

If the Parties fail to resolve any dispute arising hereunder through negotiation, each Party shall irrevocably submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.
16. Entire Agreement
16.1 The Terms together with the Agreement, Schedule A, and Our Data Processing Terms (the â€œDPTâ€) constitute the entire and exclusive agreement between the Parties concerning the subject matter hereof, superseding any prior agreements, negotiations, and discussions (both written and oral) between the Parties relating thereto.
16.2 The Terms may be executed in two counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original but all of which taken together shall constitute the same instrument.
17. Electronic Communication
Under any applicable statutes, regulations, rules, ordinances, or other laws including without limitation the Norwegian Act No 28/2001 on Electronic Signatures (the â€œE-Signature Lawâ€) and other similar statutes, You hereby agree to the use of electronic signatures, contracts, orders, and other records, and the electronic delivery of invoices, credit notes, notices, policies, and other communication initiated or completed through the Platform. Further, you hereby waive any rights or requirements under any statutes, regulations, rules, ordinances, or other laws in any jurisdiction that require a handwritten signature or delivery or retention of non-electronic records, or to payments or the granting of credits by other than electronic means.
18. Force Majeure

Neither Party may assign or otherwise transfer the Agreement or any rights and obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, to any person or entity without the other Partyâ€™s prior written consent, except in connection with a change of control transaction, provided that prompt written notice of such assignment has been provided to the other Party and that the acquirer has agreed in writing to comply with and be bound by all such Partyâ€™s obligations hereunder. Any purported assignment of rights in violation of this section shall be null and void.
The unenforceability of any provision of the Terms shall not affect any other provision hereof. Where such a provision is held to be unenforceable, the Parties shall use their best endeavours to negotiate and agree upon an enforceable provision which achieves to the greatest extent possible the economic, legal, and commercial objectives of the unenforceable provision.
