7. Terms and Termination
7.1 This Agreement shall commence on the date both parties have signed the Term Sheet and, subject to the terms of this Agreement, shall continue until the Service End Date when it shall automatically terminate.

7.3 Where the Term Sheet expressly states that Readers must be based in a particular Territory then the following provisions apply:
- (a) Readers shall continue to be permitted access while on overseas travel or temporary secondment outside of the Territory;
- (b) if FT has reason to believe that an individual is accessing Content from outside the Territory on a longer term basis (“Non-Territory Reader”) then FT will notify the Client, and FT and the Client will discuss in good faith the appropriate way to address this;
- (c) accessing Content from outside the Territory is not a breach of this Agreement (provided such access otherwise complies with this Agreement), but FT reserves the right to terminate access for any Non-Territory Reader.
7.4 FT may terminate this Agreement at any time immediately on written notice if Client (or any of its shareholders or directors) become subject to any Sanction, or continuation of the Agreement would (in the reasonable opinion of FT) expose FT or any of its affiliated companies to any Sanction. “Sanction” means any sanction, prohibition or restriction under United Nations resolutions or the trade or economic sanctions, laws or regulations of the European Union, United Kingdom, Hong Kong or United States of America.
7.5 Where the Agreement is a Group or Enterprise license, FT may initiate Fee negotiations and/or terminate this Agreement by providing 30 days written notice if the Client is subject to a takeover, merger, reorganization, change of control, other change in structure, or other similar event or events that results in a significant increase in the number of potential Licensed Readers (meaning an increase of at least five per cent) based on the number of Licensed Readers stated on the Term Sheet at the Start Date. FT’s only obligation in this event shall be the pro rata refund of any Fees paid in advance relating to the unexpired period of this Agreement. The Client shall notify FT of any such change promptly following the change.
7.6 If applicable, the Client may terminate this Agreement immediately in writing to FT if the FT Site is unavailable or inaccessible to all Readers for either (a) more than 3 consecutive days; or (b) more than 5 days in a 30 day period, as a result of the fault or failure of FT. On such termination FT shall provide the Client with a pro rata refund of any Fee paid in advance that relates to the unexpired period of the Agreement.
7.7 FT acknowledges that the Client does not wish to lose the benefit of this Agreement by virtue of non-material mis-use by a Reader of the Content. Notwithstanding clause 7.2(a) and subject to clause 7.8, in the event that FT reasonably believes that the Client is in breach of the terms of this Agreement (including any breach by a Reader of the Copyright Policy) (a “Breach”) then FT agrees, subject to clause 7.8, that it shall not exercise any of its rights under this Agreement, until it has followed the following process:
- (a) FT shall promptly notify the Client in writing (including email) of the Breach and any relevant details;
- (b) the Client shall have 7 days in which to respond to this notice and either (i) deny the Breach or (ii) explain in detail both the reasons for the Breach and the remedial and/or investigatory steps the Client will take to prevent a reoccurrence of the Breach, within the next 30 days, to ensure that there cannot be a repeat of the Breach and shall implement such steps; and
- (c) if the Client admits the Breach and complies with its obligations in sub-clause (b) above to the reasonable satisfaction of FT (and FT may make representations in this regard which the Client shall consider in good faith), the Agreement shall continue on its terms. In all other circumstances FT shall be free to exercise its rights under the Agreement, including those in clause 7.2(a).
7.8 FT shall not be obliged to follow the process in clause 7.7 if:
- (a) FT has already invoked the Breach Process on two previous occasions with the Client (whether or not in respect of the same Breach and irrespective of whether the applicable Breach was remedied); or
- (b) FT reasonably believes that the Breach is due to fraud, willful default or willful abandonment by the Client or any Reader; or
- (c) the Breach involves any misuse by the Client or any Reader of a material amount of the Content. For the purposes of this clause, “Material” means if such Breach results in more than 10 unlicensed individuals receiving or having the opportunity to access more than 10 FT articles per month.
7.9 Within thirty (30) days of the termination or expiry of this Agreement the Client shall delete or destroy, in accordance with the directions of FT, all materials relating to the Content in the Client’s possession or control, whether held electronically or otherwise.
7.10 Any termination of this Agreement is without prejudice to any other rights or remedies a party may be entitled to under this Agreement or at law and shall not affect any accrued rights or liabilities of either party. Termination of this Agreement shall not relieve the Client of its obligation to pay FT any outstanding Fee.
7.11 In any circumstances where FT is entitled to issue a notification of breach for the purposes of clause 7.2(a) or terminate this Agreement, including occasions when the Client fails to pay outstanding Fee due or fails to observe the agreed Licensed Reader levels, it may elect by written notice to suspend its provision of the Content or any rights that it has granted in the Agreement to the Client. The suspension shall not affect Client’s payment obligations. Any suspension shall continue until FT is satisfied that the breach is remedied or until FT elects to exercise its right to terminate the Agreement.
8.1 Each of the parties undertakes to keep confidential all information (written or oral) concerning the business and affairs of the other that it will have obtained or received as a result of the discussion leading up to the entering into, or in the course of the performance of, this Agreement (“Confidential Information”) save that which is (a) trivial or obvious; (b) already in its possession other than as a result of a breach of this clause; (c) in the public domain other than as a result of a breach of this clause; (d) required by a government body, a court of competent jurisdiction, or otherwise by law to be disclosed, provided that the disclosing party shall use all reasonable endeavours and act in good faith to consult with the other party wherever practicable before disclosing such information; or (e) for FT’s benefit only, is acquired by members of FT’s newsgathering or news dissemination operations by persons who are not provided with access to the Confidential Information pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.
8.2 Each party agrees not to make any announcement regarding this Agreement or the activities associated with it without the prior written consent of the other save for any announcement made by the Client to the Readers.
9. Force Majeure
Neither party shall be liable for any failure to perform its obligations under this Agreement if such performance is hindered or prevented by any matter beyond the reasonable control of the party whose performance is hindered or prevented (including without limitation by reason of any failure, interruption, or degradation of any third party telecommunications network or system or hardware or the Internet or any part of it or of a Third Party Channel) (a “Force Majeure Event”). If a Force Majeure Event continues for more than one month then either party may immediately terminate this Agreement on written notice to the other (provided that the Force Majeure Event is still continuing on the date of that notice).
10.1 No provision of this Agreement (including to the online terms) may be amended, modified, discharged or terminated other than by the express written agreement of the parties.
10.2 No failure or delay by either party to exercise any right or remedy under this Agreement or by law will constitute a waiver of that or any other right or remedy. Nor will it preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy. No single or partial exercise of such right or remedy will preclude or restrict the further exercise of that or any other right or remedy.
10.3 This Agreement may be signed in counterparts and all signed copies of this Agreement shall be deemed to be originals of this Agreement. Copies signed by counterparts and sent by email (attaching a scanned copy of the signed hard copy) shall be deemed to be original copies.

Each party acknowledges that, in entering into this Agreement, it has not relied on, and will have no right or remedy in respect of, any statement, representation, assurance or warranty (whether made negligently or innocently) other than as expressly set out in this Agreement. Nothing in this clause will limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
10.6 If a provision of this Agreement (or part of any provision) is found by any court or other authority of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision will, to the extent required, be deemed not to form part of this Agreement, and the validity and enforceability of the other terms of this Agreement will not be affected. If a provision of this Agreement (or part of any provision) is found to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, the provision will apply with the minimum modification necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable.
10.7 This Agreement may not be assigned, licensed, sub-licensed or otherwise transferred without the prior written consent of FT.
10.8 Anyone who is not a direct party to this Agreement will not have any rights to enforce its terms. The rights of the parties to terminate, rescind or agree any variation, waiver or settlement under this agreement are not subject to the consent of any other person.
10.9 Client acknowledges that if it does not execute and return this Agreement to FT (whether electronically or otherwise) no less than 10 working days prior to the Service Start Date, this may cause delay in the commencement of elements of the services to be provided by FT under this Agreement.
