  • If you have completed the Initial Term, cancellation will be effective at the completion of one full Cycle after Local Force’s receipt of your Cancellation Request (for example if you request cancellation while you are in the middle of the 6th Cycle, the cancellation will be effective after completion (and payment) through and including the 7th Cycle).
    Local Force may cancel at any time for any reason on written notice to you (which may be provided by email) upon the conclusion of a Cycle.
  • Cancellation Revocation. You may, upon written notice to Local Force (email is acceptable) revoke such termination within 30 days after you have made a Cancellation Request, in which case the Order Form will be reinstated and all applicable campaigns, if they had been stopped, will be re-initiated upon payment in full of all amounts owed.

  • Termination for Cause.
