10.2 Each Project shall commence on the date set out in the relevant Booking Form and shall, subject to earlier termination in accordance with this Agreement, continue indefinitely.
10.3 Amendment of any of the fees detailed on each Booking Form is subject to the same Notice period for the Service
10.4 Termination of a Booking Form in accordance with its terms shall not serve to terminate this Agreement which shall continue in full force and effect. Subject to Clause 10.5, this Agreement shall remain in effect for so long as a Booking Form shall remain in effect.
10.5 Either party may terminate this Agreement or a Booking Form immediately on giving written notice to the other party in the event of: (a) any material breach by the other party, which breach is not remedied (if remediable) within 30 days after receipt by the party in default of a written notice specifying the nature of the breach and requiring the same to be remedied; or (b) the other party becoming insolvent, entering into liquidation, having an administrator appointed, making any composition or arrangement with its creditors or taking or suffering any similar action in consequence of debt.
10.6 Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason: (a) Client shall immediately pay Litebulb Media all Fees for Services effected up to and including the effective date of termination, calculated pro-rata for incomplete months; and (b) provisions of this Agreement which either are expressed to survive its termination or from their nature or context it is contemplated that they are to survive such termination, shall remain in full force and effect notwithstanding such termination.
10.7 Client is permitted to terminate this Agreement at any time after the initial term of 3 months has been completed, providing written notice is served to Litebulb Media no less than 30 days prior to the desired termination date. Where the Client has chosen the yearly payment terms, a refund will be granted by Litebulb Media, but the higher monthly rate that is applicable to the monthly payment terms will be applied to all previous months where a Service has been provided, prior to issuance of refund.
10.8 Termination prior to the minimum term of 3 months is not permitted. Should Client request a termination within the minimum term of 3 months, Litebulb Media will be permitted to stop all Services but payment for 3 months must still be made by Client in full.
10.9 Your entitlement to a full refund from the Negotiation Services package is subject to Litebulb’s representative attending at least three meetings of the same deal-process and specifically the meeting where the contract and/or agreement in question is due to be finalised and signed (i.e. the Final Meeting in the negotiation process). If the Litebulb representative is not present for this Final Meeting then Client waivers the right to redeem a full refund, on the basis that Litebulb’s representative was not present during the Final Meeting, even if s/he was present in the negotiation process leading up to the Final Meeting. For clarification, if Litebulb’s representative attends one or two negotiation meetings, the Client does not qualify for a full refund. If Litebulb’s representative attends three or more meetings of the same deal-process, then one of these three meetings must be the Final Meeting, or else all rights to a full refund are waived by Client. Attending meetings for different deal-processes does not contribute towards the three number minimum to qualify for a full refund
