The effective term of the License Agreement shall be a period of one (1) year from the date of application indicated in the Application Form; provided, however, that, if the member store does not declare its intent of not renewing the License Agreement at least one (1) month prior to the expiration of the effective term of the License Agreement, the License Agreement will be automatically renewed for a period of one (1) year under the same terms and conditions simultaneously with the expiration of the effective term, and the same shall apply to any subsequent terms.
Even during the effective term, the member store may cancel the License Agreement by providing a one (1) month prior notice according to the method to be separately prescribed by Toreta.
