Termination of the Client Services Agreement
You may terminate this Agreement simply by ceasing to submit any new broadcasts for publishing. Refunds will only be issued in accordance with the Terms and Conditions.
9.1 The Client Services Agreement will begin on the date when each of us has signed it, ("the Effective Date") and will continue for an initial minimum term of twelve (12) months from the date when the first broadcast from your confirmed Order is uploaded. At the end of that initial minimum term and at the end of each successive new term, the Agreement will automatically renew and you may continue uploading new broadcasts for publishing, each for a further twelve (12) months term from the date when it is uploaded. In accordance with the Terms and Conditions and without limiting our other rights or remedies, the Client Services Agreement may be terminated by either of us at the expiry of: (i) the initial minimum term for your latest broadcast published; or (ii) any subsequent renewal term. Until the Client Services Agreement is effectively terminated, we will continue to provide you with, and you may continue to upload, host, stream, distribute, publish and pay for, the Client Services.

(e) a petition is filed, a notice is given, a resolution is passed, or an order is made, for or in connection with the winding up of the other party other than for the sole purpose of a scheme for a solvent amalgamation of the other party with one or more other companies or the solvent reconstruction of that other party;

(b) suspend the supply of Services under any Client Services Agreement or any other Agreement between us if you fail to pay any amount due under that Agreement on the invoice due date for payment.
