7.1 Either we or you shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement immediately by written notice to the other if the other commits any material breach of this Agreement and, in the case of a breach capable of remedy, fails to remedy it within 21 days after receipt of a written notice giving full details of the breach and requiring it to be remedied.
7.2 Either of us can also terminate this Agreement if the other is bankrupt or the subject of a bankruptcy order (or the equivalent in any other jurisdiction) or the other becomes insolvent or unable to pay its debts as they fall due or makes any arrangement or composition with, or an assignment for the benefit of, its creditors or if any of its assets are the subject of any form of seizure.
