2. Term and Termination
The term of this Agreement shall commence as of the date you first register for, access or use the Service, and shall continue for the period agreed by you in
your Order, unless earlier terminated as set forth below (the “Term”). If you have a monthly subscription, you may terminate this Agreement at any time by notifying Barkly that you wish to terminate your account.

Upon any termination of this Agreement, any amounts owed to Barkly which accrued prior to such termination will become immediately due and payable. No refunds will be provided by Barkly if you or Barkly terminate the Agreement. Upon termination, we reserve the right to remotely remove the Agent from your device if we so choose.
3. Modifications to Agreement
Barkly reserves the right to amend or modify this Agreement at any time, but if we do, we will bring it to your attention by placing a notice in the Portal or by sending you an email. If you don’t agree with the amended or modified Agreement, you are free to reject it; but you will no longer be able to use the Service, and Barkly will not provide a refund. If you use the Services in any way after a change to this Agreement is effective, that means you agree to all of the changes.
