YOU may terminate this license agreement by terminating your IPSCIO account and destroying all DATA previously downloaded, printed or stored in any other format outside IPSCIO websites. The termination of your account does not terminate this license until all DATA has been destroyed. Additionally, either party may terminate this License for breach by the other party by providing at least thirty (30) days advance written notice to the other party describing the breach, provided the breach is not cured within such thirty (30) day period. In the event of termination of this License for any reason: (a) You shall pay IPSCIO all fees payable under this License through the effective date of termination: (b) Your rights in and to the DATA pursuant to Section 3 below shall terminate, and all information and materials licensed pursuant thereto shall be destroyed by YOU within ten (10) days of the effective date of termination; and (c) all provisions of this License which by their nature or express terms are to survive shall so survive, and all remaining rights and obligations shall terminate.
