If the Customer does not accept the amendment or addition, the Customer has the right to terminate the Agreement with immediate effect within the aforementioned 30-day period, in which case the Annual Fee for the remaining contract period, as the sole penalty, shall be refunded to the Customer. Failing this, the Customer will be deemed to have accepted the new conditions.
15. TERM OF AGREEMENT
The Agreement shall enter into force on the date the Customer orders the Services and shall commence with a free trial period of one (1) month. If the Customer pays the first Annual Fee, the Agreement will continue for a period of one (1) year thereafter.
