If you do not terminate the relevant Service under the Terms in accordance with this clause, you are deemed to have agreed to the new Sub-Processor.

12.2. If you object to any variation under clause 12.1 on reasonable grounds, you may, despite anything to the contrary in the Terms, terminate these Terms and your right to access and use the Service without penalty on written notice, provided your notice of termination is received by us before the effective date of our notice. If you do not terminate these Terms and your right to access and use the Service in accordance with this clause, you are deemed to have agreed to the variation.
The liability of each party to the other party under or in connection with this Addendum is subject to the limitations and exclusions set out in the Terms, and any reference in the Terms to the liability of a party means the aggregate liability of that party under the Terms and this Addendum together.
If any provision of this Addendum is, or becomes unenforceable, illegal or invalid for any reason, the relevant provision is deemed to be varied to the extent necessary to remedy the unenforceability, illegality or invalidity.
