The Initial Term and Renewal Terms are referred to as the “Term”. Other than as expressly set forth herein, you may not cancel the Web Services without our written consent.
11.2 Termination for Cause. A party may terminate this Agreement, including all Order Forms: (a) upon 45 days’ written notice of a material breach by the other party if the breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, except for breach of payment obligations which shall have a ten (10) day cure period; and (b) if the other party becomes insolvent or the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, receivership, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors. If we terminate for your payment default, you agree to pay to us, in addition to fees accrued through the date of termination, the remaining value of the then-current Initial or Renewal Term (that you acknowledge as liquidated damages reflecting a reasonable measure of actual damages and not a penalty) equal to the recurring fees (as set forth in the Order Form) that will become due during the canceled portion of such Initial or Renewal Term.
11.4 Suspension. We shall be entitled to suspend any or all performance upon 10 days written notice to you in the event you are in breach of the Agreement (and not cured within 5 business days of such written notice), including without limitation breach of the payment terms set forth in the Order Form. Further, we may suspend your access and use of the Services immediately and without notice if, and so long as, in our sole judgment, there is a risk of damage or security created by you that may interfere with the proper continued provision of the Web Services, the operation of our network or systems, or may lead to damage to us or a third-party. We may impose an additional charge to reinstate Web Services following such suspension, in addition to the regular fees for the period of suspension.
11.5 Return of Customer Data. With respect to Autotask PSA, as soon as practicable following your written request and payment of all amounts you owe to us, so long as you are not in breach of this Agreement, we shall provide you, to the extent technically feasible and for a reasonable fee, a file in a standard format, containing Customer Data in our possession or under our control, in such form as it exists on the date of termination or expiration of the Web Services. Such return of Customer Data is not applicable to Datto RMM or Datto Commerce.
11.6 Destruction of Customer Data After Termination: Notwithstanding anything in the Agreement or otherwise, we shall have no obligation to maintain or provide any Customer Data more than 30 days after termination or expiration of the Web Services for any reason. Thereafter, we may delete all Customer Data in our possession or under our control, provided, however, we may retain a copy for archival purposes. We reserve the right to withhold, remove and/or discard Customer Data without notice after any breach that has not been cured within the applicable cure period, including, without limitation, your non-payment. Upon termination for cause: your right to access, use or copy Customer Data immediately ceases.
