1.3 Order Term. Unless earlier terminated in accordance with this Agreement or the applicable Order, each Order will continue for the initial subscription term specified in such Order (“Initial Term”) and, if such Order provides for automatic renewal, then, unless either Party provides the other with notice of non-renewal, upon the date of expiration of the then-current term, such Order will automatically renew for successive terms (each, a “Renewal Term”) equal in length to the Initial Term or such other length of Renewal Term period as stated on the Order (the Initial Term and each Renewal Term, if any, collectively, the “Order Term” of such Order).
