Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Agreement or any Order Form may be terminated by Jobcase immediately upon written notice to Client if in Jobcase’s good faith judgment any of the Jobcase Services, the Jobcase Features, or the Jobcase Confidential Information is being used or disclosed contrary to the Agreement or any Order Form.
