    3. Purchase Orders; Payment Processors. To the extent that the Customer requires the use of a purchase order prior to making any payments under the Agreement, the Customer’s failure to submit such a purchase order to NiceLabel does not excuse the Customer from payment of the Fees in the amounts, or in the manner, agreed upon herein or in the applicable Order.

    4. Fee Increases.

Either party may terminate the Agreement, or any individual Order, for a material breach by the other party that is not cured within thirty (30) days after written notice of such material breach.   The non-breaching party may elect to terminate the applicable Order only or the Agreement as a whole (and thus, all Orders hereunder).

Parties agree, that NiceLabel is entitled to terminate this Agreement in case of non-payment of any Fees due under this Agreement and its appendices.
    4. Termination for Bankruptcy. Either party may terminate the Agreement or any Order, or suspend its performance hereunder or thereunder, if the other party becomes insolvent or bankrupt or ceases to do business.
    5. Effect of Termination or Expiration. Upon expiration or termination of all Subscription Orders (unless Customer subsequently purchases an additional Subscription Order), Customer’s rights granted under this Agreement shall terminate and Customer and its Users shall no longer have access to the Services.  Notwithstanding, Customer shall be granted access to all Customer data for a period of thirty (30) days after the effective date of termination or expiration. Parties agree that should the Customer require a longer period after the effective date of termination or expiration for access to all Customer data, such shall be granted to the Customer subject to the Fees payable under this Agreement calculated pro-rata to the length of such additional period.

    11. Unenforceability. In the event any provision of the Agreement is held to be unenforceable for any reason, the unenforceability thereof will not affect the remainder of the Agreement, which will remain in full force and effect and enforceable in accordance with its terms.  With respect to any unenforceable provision, the applicable arbitrator or court shall deem the provision modified to the extent necessary, in such adjudicator’s opinion, to render such term or provision enforceable, and the rights and obligations of the parties will be construed and enforced accordingly, preserving to the fullest permissible extent the intent and agreements of the parties set forth herein.
    12. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts and by facsimile or e-mail, each of which shall be an original as against any party whose signature appears thereon and all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.
