The nature of User’s Subscription may be described in the SOW. Subscriptions shall continue in effect for the period of time stated in the SOW (“Initial Subscription Term”).
Subscription Automatic Renewal. Unless otherwise stated, the Subscription will automatically renew after its Initial Subscription Term for additional periods of the same length as the initial period described in the SOW (each, a “Renewal Subscription Term” and together with the Initial Subscription Term, the “Subscription Term”), unless either party notifies the other of its intention not to renew that Subscription at least thirty days prior to the expiration of the then-current Subscription Term. User may terminate a Subscription if the applicable SOW allows User to terminate. If User may terminate according to the requirements of the SOW before the end of the then-current Subscription Term, then at ICE’s discretion, User may be required to pay any remaining fees owing for the remainder of the then-current Subscription Term within thirty days of the effective date of termination.
