For avoidance of doubt, Customer will remain responsible for payment of any Subscription Fee during any period in which such Customer’s access to the Headset Services has been suspended.

- Effect of Termination. Upon any expiration or termination of this Agreement, an Order, or a Subscription Term: (i) Customer’s rights to use the applicable Headset Service(s) shall terminate and it must immediately cease use of all applicable Headset Services, Licensed Data, and Data Derivatives, and delete any applicable Headset documentation, passwords or access codes and any other Headset Confidential Information in Customer’s possession, custody or control and (ii) Customer’s right to access any Customer Data in the applicable Headset Service will cease and Headset may delete any such data in its possession at any time.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Receiving Party shall protect Confidential Information with the same degree of care it uses to protect its own confidential information of similar nature and importance, but with no less than reasonable care.

- Injunction. Receiving Party agrees that breach of this Section 10 would cause Disclosing Party irreparable injury, for which monetary damages would not provide adequate compensation, and that in addition to any other remedy, Disclosing Party will be entitled to injunctive relief against such breach or threatened breach, without proving actual damage or posting a bond or other security.
