In the event that such statement shows that the amount paid by the Licensee is less than the amount due, the Licensee shall pay to the Licensor within [seven] days of the submission of the statement an amount equivalent to the difference between the amount paid and the amount due.
7.12 The provisions of this clause 7 shall remain in effect notwithstanding termination or expiry of this agreement until the settlement of all subsisting claims by the Licensor.
