(a) on each anniversary of the Order Effective Date in a proportion not exceeding the proportionate increase in the Retail Prices (all items) Index over the corresponding period or the last increase (if any) in the Fees, whichever is the later; and
(b) at the start of each Renewal Period in a proportion not exceeding 5% above the proportionate increase in the Retail Prices (all items) Index over the corresponding period or the last increase (if any) in the Fees, whichever is the later.
If the Retail Prices (all items) Index ceases to be published then Panaseer may select a comparable replacement index.
13.4 If the Customer exceeds the Licence Limits set out in the Order, Panaseer shall be entitled to:
(a) invoice for such overage on a pro-rata basis from the date that the Licence Limits were exceeded until the end of the current contract year; and
(b) re-assess the Fees for the remainder of the Licence Period based on such over-usage. For the avoidance of doubt, if Panaseer increases the Fees in accordance with this Clause 13.4(b), such increase will form the new minimum annual Fee amount and Panaseer shall not be obliged to reduce the Fees below this increased amount at any time during the Licence Period (irrespective of the Customer’s usage throughout the remainder of the Licence Period).
As a worked example, and for illustrative purposes only, to demonstrate how Panaseer may increase the Fees where the Customer exceeds the Licence Limits:
(a) the Customer places an order to buy the Licensed Software for 3 years;
(b) the Customer pays £50,000 per year to grant access to the Licensed Software to 50,000 end users;
(c) in the sixth month of year 1, the Customer exceeds the Licence Limits and grants access to 75,000 total end users, exceeding the limit by 25,000 users. Panaseer shall be entitled to:
(i) increase the Fees for the remainder of year 1 by £12,500;
(ii) increase the Fees per year for year 2 and year 3 to £75,000 (or a higher number if the Customer further exceeds the Licence Limits).
In this illustration all Fees are shown exclusive of any applicable taxes.
13.5 Any applicable value added, sales or other tax, custom or excise (“Applicable Tax”) is to be paid by the Customer at the prevailing rate on all sums due under the relevant Order or Statement of Work. All sums quoted in the relevant Order or Statement of Work are exclusive of any Applicable Taxes.
13.6 All sums due must be paid:
(a) within 30 days of the date of Panaseer’s invoice (or such other period as may be specified in the relevant Order or Statement of Work) (the “Due Date”); and
(b) in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (other than any deduction or withholding of Applicable Tax which is required by law).
13.7 Without prejudice to any other right or remedy that Panaseer may have, where the Customer fails to pay Panaseer any sum due under this agreement on the Due Date, the Customer shall pay interest on the overdue sum from the Due Date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. Interest under this Clause will accrue each day at 4% a year above HSBC’s base rate from time to time, but at 4% a year for any period when that base rate is below 0%.
13.8 Without prejudice to any other right or remedy that Panaseer may have, where the Customer fails to pay any amount due under the Subscription Contract on the Due Date and such amount remains unpaid for:
(a) 5 days or more following the Due Date, Panaseer may suspend the Professional Services or access to part or all of the Licensed Software until payment has been made in full; and
(b) 20 days or more following the Due Date, Panaseer may terminate the Subscription Contract with immediate effect by giving written notice to the Customer.
13.9 If, as a result of the Customer’s breach of the Subscription Contract, Panaseer is unable to invoice the Customer for any Fees on the date upon which Panaseer would have been permitted to invoice the Customer but for such breach, Panaseer shall be entitled to invoice the Customer for those Fees on the date it would have been entitled to invoice the Customer had the Customer complied with the Subscription Contract.
14.1 These Subscription Terms shall commence on the first Order Effective Date and shall continue for the Subscription Contract Period unless terminated by either Party in accordance with Clauses 13.8, 15 or 19.2(c) of the Subscription Terms.
14.2 Each Order shall commence on the Order Effective Date and shall continue for the Licence Period, unless terminated earlier by either Party in accordance with the terms of the relevant Order, or Clauses 13.8, 15 or 19.2(c) of the Subscription Terms.
14.3 Following the Initial Licence Period, each Order shall automatically renew for successive 1 year renewal terms unless either Party provides written notice to the other Party of its intent not to renew at least 3 months prior to the end of the then-current Initial Licence Period or Renewal Period.
14.4 Each Statement of Work shall commence on its Statement of Work Effective Date and shall continue for the Statement of Work Term, unless terminated earlier by either Party in accordance with the terms of the relevant Statement of Work, or Clauses 13.8, 15 or 19.2(c) of the Subscription Terms.
15. Termination, Expiry and Suspension
15.1 Either Party may terminate an Order or a Statement of Work (including all licences granted under it) immediately on written notice if the other commits any material breach of these Subscription Terms or that Order or that Statement of Work and such breach is incapable of remedy or is not remedied to the non-defaulting Party’s reasonable satisfaction within 30 days of written notice sent to email@example.com specifying the breach and requiring its remedy. For the avoidance of doubt, a breach by a Party of these Subscription Terms shall not entitle a Party to terminate an Order or Statement of Work, and vice versa, and a breach by a Party of an Order or Statement of Work shall not entitle a Party to terminate any other Order or Statement of Work, unless expressly permitted in these Subscription Terms.

(c) the other Party suspends, or threatens to suspend, payment of its debts or is unable to pay its debts as they fall due or admits inability to pay its debts, or is deemed unable to pay its debts within the meaning of section 123 of the Insolvency Act 1986 as if the words “it is proved to the satisfaction of the court” did not appear in sections 123(1)(e) or 123(2) of the Insolvency Act, or (being a partnership), has any partner to whom any of the foregoing apply
provided that, in the case of Panaseer, it is permitted to do so under Applicable Law (e.g., s233B Insolvency Act 1986 as amended). Either Party may immediately on written notice to the other Party, terminate these Subscription Terms following the termination or expiry of all Orders and Statements of Work agreed between the Parties.
15.3 Where any part of the Fees is payable in advance of the Licensed Software and/or the Professional Services to which they relate, Panaseer may suspend the delivery of the Licensed Software and/or the performance of those Professional Services until payment has been received.

(b) a Renewal Period, then, unless the reason for such non-completion is wholly or mainly due to a Panaseer delay or default, a further Renewal Period will commence.
