The Banking Fee must be paid by credit card or check and is due and payable on the anniversary of each Fee Date. Prior to each Fee Date, VetStem will provide Owner with a written notification (either email or USPS as provided by the Owner) of the Banking Fee amount and due date. Owner will receive notification of any adjustment to the Banking Fee prior to the next Fee Date.

Termination for Breach: In the event Owner fails to pay Banking Fee within thirty (30) days after notification of due date or if Owner cannot be located by reasonable means, VetStem may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement without further notice and may treat all Cells as abandoned property, and may discard or otherwise dispose of Cells at its sole discretion.
