9. TERM AND TERMINATION
9.1 Term. Unless terminated earlier in accordance with Section 9.1 below, this Agreement and the license granted hereunder will be effective as of the date Customer purchases the Conduktor Software (the "Effective Date") and shall continue for a term of one year from the Effective Date (together with each renewal term, the "Term"). Thereafter, the license shall automatically renew for successive one-year terms at the then current list price unless Customer notifies Conduktor in writing, such notice to be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, at least fifteen (15) days prior to the end of the current term of Customer's intention to terminate the license.
9.2 Termination. The license granted hereunder shall immediately terminate if Customer breaches Section 1 of this Agreement, regardless of whether Conduktor notifies Customer of such termination. In addition, Conduktor shall have the right to terminate this Agreement and the license granted herein upon written notice in the event the Customer fails to perform or observe any material term or condition of this Agreement and such default has not been cured no later than ten (10) days after written notice of such default to the Customer.

All of Customer's rights in the Conduktor Software will terminate immediately upon termination of this Agreement. Customer shall not be entitled to any refund of fees paid. No later than five (5) days after termination of this Agreement, Customer shall return to Conduktor or, upon Conduktor's request, destroy or render inaccessible, at Customer's sole expense, all Confidential Information of Conduktor and materials containing any Confidential Information of Conduktor, and discontinue use of and uninstall the Conduktor Software, including all copies thereof.

10.1 Assignment. Customer shall not assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, whether by operation of law or otherwise, to any third party without Conduktor's prior written consent. Any purported transfer, assignment or delegation without such prior written consent will be null and void and of no force or effect.

Customer acknowledges that it has not entered in this Agreement based on any representations other than those contained herein. No modification of or amendment to this Agreement, nor any waiver of any rights under this Agreement, shall be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties. The waiver of one breach or default or any delay in exercising any rights shall not constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default.
