  1. Indemnification

10.1 Our Indemnification Obligations to Customer.

10.2 Customer’s Indemnification Obligations to Us. Customer will defend and indemnify us against Indemnified Amounts in any third-party legal proceeding to the extent arising from (a) Customer Data or (b) Customer’s and Customer’s End Users’ use of the Services.

These indemnification obligations will not apply to the extent the underlying allegation arises from (a) the indemnified party’s breach of this agreement or (b) a combination of the indemnifying party’s technology with materials not provided by the indemnifying party under this agreement, unless such combination is required by this agreement.

10.4 Notice Requirement.The indemnified party must promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any allegation(s) that preceded the third-party legal proceeding and cooperate reasonably with the indemnifying party to resolve the allegation(s) and third-party legal proceeding. If breach of this notification obligation prejudices the defense of the legal proceeding, the indemnifying party’s obligations will be reduced in proportion to the prejudice.

10.5 Sole Control Requirement. The indemnified party must give sole control of the indemnified portion of the third-party legal proceeding to the indemnifying party, subject to the following: (a) the indemnified party may appoint its own non-controlling counsel, at its own expense; and (b) any settlement requiring the indemnified party to admit liability, pay money, or take (or refrain from taking) any action, will require the indemnified party’s prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed.

10.6 Remedies. If we reasonably believe the Services might infringe a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, then we may, at our sole option and expense (a) procure the right for Customer to continue using the Services; (b) modify the Services to make them non-infringing without materially reducing their functionality; or (c) replace the Services with a non-infringing, functionally equivalent alternative. If we can’t figure out a reasonable way to offer these remedies, we may suspend or terminate Customer’s use of the Services, with a pro-rata refund of prepaid and unused Fees for the Services.

10.7 Indemnification is the Sole Remedy for Third-Party Intellectual Property Rights Allegations. Without affecting either party’s termination rights, this Section 10 (Indemnification) states the parties’ sole and exclusive remedy under this agreement for any third-party allegations of Intellectual Property Rights infringement covered by this Section 10 (Indemnification).
