- On the expiration or termination of the Membership, all access to the ArchiStar Platform will cease.
- All information, data and materials contained on the ArchiStar Platform will cease to be available and ArchiStar is under no obligation to store or maintain such data. If the Customer wishes to keep a copy of its records, reports or other information it must ensure that such information is saved on its own servers prior to the expiration or termination of these T&Cs.
- Any examination which has not been taken as at the date of expiration or termination will no longer be available. As such, it is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that its Authorised Users are aware of the last date by which examinations must be taken.

- Other than for termination for breach, if the Membership is terminated prior to the end of any Term, no refund of Membership Fees will be applicable.
