C. The Licensee has agreed to purchase the Licence on the terms and conditions set forth hereinbelow (the EULA).

1.4. The Licence commences on the date of acceptance of this EULA (which acceptance is communicated by the Licensee downloading, installing and using BarBooks) and ends upon termination.
1.5. The Licence granted by this clause (and this EULA) is non-exclusive, non-transferrable (either by sublicense, transfer, assignment or otherwise) and may be terminated by the Licensor in the circumstances set forth hereinbelow.

2.3. The Licence Fee (and any Goods and Services Tax or other value-added tax) is payable by the Licensee to the Licensor in such amount, in such manner and by such method as the Licensor may from time to time direct.

Such additional Licence Fee may be charged on an annual or monthly basis by the Licensor according to the form of subscription selected by the Licensee, or as the Licensor may in its absolute discretion determine.
2.5. The Licence Fee is payable by the Licensee whether or not a tax invoice/ receipt has first been issued by the Licensor in respect of the Licence Fee. However, the Licensor will issue to the Licensee a tax invoice/ receipt for each payment of the License Fee within a reasonable time of the due date for such payment.
2.6. In the event that the Licensee fails to pay any part of the Licence Fee and such failure continues for more than 7 days from the due date for payment, the Licensor may charge interest on the unpaid amount at the rate of 4% above the Reserve Bank cash target rate from time to time. However, before such interest can be charged, the Licensor must notify the Licensee in writing of its intention to charge interest, and provide the Licensee with 7 days from the date of that notification within which to pay the outstanding amount in satisfaction of which no interest will become payable. This restriction applies only to the first charge made for interest. Any subsequent charges for interest may be made by the Licensor without prior notification in its absolute discretion.
