Term and Termination
Term. The term of the Agreement will commence on the date that Unity Studios provides written notice to Licensee of confirmation of receipt of the Agreement as signed by Licensee in a manner satisfactory to Unity Studios (“Effective Date”) and continue in effect until the date agreed in the Agreement, unless terminated as set forth in these GTC (“Term”).
Termination. Both Unity Studios and Licensee may terminate Licensee’s subscription to SynergyXR as of the end of Licensee’s Term by providing written notice, in accordance with the Agreement and these GTC, no less than thirty (30) days prior to the end the Term. Unless Licensee’s subscription to SynergyXR is so terminated, Licensee’s subscription to SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) will renew for a new term equivalent in length to the Term. Unless otherwise provided for, the subscription charges applicable to Licensee’s subscription to SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) for any such subsequent term shall be Unity Studios standard subscription charges for SynergyXR (including for any and all deployed associated services) to which Licensee has subscribed or which Licensee has deployed, as applicable, as of the time such subsequent term commences.
Except for Licensee’s termination rights under Section 7.2, no refunds or credits for subscription charges or other fees or payments will be provided to Licensee if Licensee terminates subscription to SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) prior to the end of Licensee’s then applicable term.
Except for Licensee’s termination rights under Section 7.2, if Licensee terminate subscription to SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) prior to the end of Licensee’s then effective term, or Unity Studios effect such termination or cancellation pursuant to Sections 7.2 and 7.3, in addition to other amounts Licensee may owe Unity Studios, Licensee must immediately pay any then unpaid subscription charges associated with the remainder of such term. This amount will not be payable by Licensee in the event Licensee terminate or cancel Licensee’s subscription to SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) as a result of a material breach of the Agreement and/or these GTC by Unity Studios.
Unity Studios reserves the right to restrict functionality, suspend or terminate the services provided under the subscription to SynergyXR (or any part thereof including any and all deployed associated services), remove, disable and quarantine any data provided through SynergyXR (or any part thereof including any and all deployed associated services) if Unity Studios reasonably believe that Licensee has violated the Agreement of these GTC. Unless legally prohibited from doing so, Unity Studios will use commercially reasonable efforts to contact Licensee directly via email to notify Licensee when taking any of the foregoing actions. Unity Studios shall not be liable to Licensee or any other third party for any such modification, suspension or discontinuation of Licensee’s rights to access and use SynergyXR (or any part thereof including any and all deployed associated services). Any suspected fraudulent, abusive, or illegal activity by Licensee’s users may be referred to law enforcement authorities at Unity Studios’ sole discretion.
Both Unity Studios and Licensee may terminate the Agreement for cause (a) upon written notice to the other party of a material breach if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of thirty (30) working days from the date of the breaching party’s receipt of such notice; 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. If the Agreement is terminated by Licensee in accordance with this section, Unity Studios will, to the extent permitted by applicable law, refund Licensee any prepaid subscription charges for the period after the effective date of termination. If the Agreement is terminated by Unity Studios in accordance with this section, Licensee is obliged to pay any unpaid subscription charges covering the remainder of applicable term, see section 7.1-7.2. In no event will termination relieve Licensee’s obligation to pay any subscription charges payable to Unity Studios for the period prior to the effective date of termination.
Upon request by Licensee made within thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination or expiration of the Agreement, Unity Studios will make Output data available to Licensee for download. After such 30-day period, Unity Studios will have no obligation to maintain or provide any Output data and will be eligible to delete all copies of such Output data in Unity Studios’ possession or control, unless prohibited by law.
Effect of Termination. In the event of any termination of the Agreement by either party under section 7.2, Licensee will return SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) to Unity Studios and cease all use thereof. For the avoidance of doubt, the foregoing sentence will not affect Licensee’s ability to retain or make future use of any of Licensee’s existing content or data that was developed, compiled or created without the use of SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services).
Survival. Sections 2.2 and 3 through 11 (inclusive) of these GTC will survive termination.
Licensee shall indemnify and hold harmless Unity Studios from and against any and all claims arising from Licensee's use of SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) and/or Communications Means, or from the conduct of Licensee's business or from any activity, work or things done, permitted or suffered by Licensee in connection with the use of SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) and/or Communications Means and shall further indemnify and hold harmless Unity Studios from and against any and all claims arising from any breach or default in the performance of any obligation on Licensee's part to be performed using SynergyXR (including any and all deployed associated services) and/or Communications Means, or arising from any negligence of the Licensee, or any of Licensee's agents, contractors, or employees, and from and against all costs, attorney's fees, expenses and liabilities incurred in the defense of any such claim or any action or proceeding brought thereon; and in case any action or proceeding be brought against Unity Studios by reason of any such claim, Licensee upon notice from Unity Studios shall defend the same at Licensee's expense by counsel chosen by Unity Studios.
