8.1. By Sixgill.
8.1.1. Indemnity. Sixgill agrees to defend and hold Licensee and its directors, officers, employees and agents and its respective successors, heirs and assigns (collectively, the “Licensee Parties”) harmless from and against any liability, damage, loss, or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses of litigation) (collectively, “Losses”) incurred by or imposed upon any of them in connection with any third-party claim, action or proceeding (a “Claim”) that the Service as made available to Licensee by Sixgill infringes, violates, or misappropriates the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sixgill shall have no obligation to indemnify Licensee to the extent that any Claim arises from (a) Licensee’s use of the Service in contravention of this Agreement or any applicable documentation; or (b) the combination or use of the Service with any other software, services, technology, content, or materials that were not provided by Sixgill.
8.1.2. Right to Ameliorate Damages. In the event that a court of competent jurisdiction determines or in the event that Sixgill, in its sole discretion, reasonably determines, that the Service, or any portion thereof, infringes or misappropriates, or may infringe or misappropriate, any third-party Intellectual Property Right, Sixgill shall, as Licensee’s sole and exclusive remedy (but without limitation of Sixgill’s obligations under Section 8.1.1), and at Sixgill’s sole discretion, either: (a) obtain a license, at reasonable cost, for Licensee to continue using the Service, or portion thereof; (b) modify the Service while retaining substantively equivalent functionality; (c) replace the affected Service with functionally equivalent software or services; or (d) terminate this Agreement in whole or in part (in which event, Licensee shall immediately terminate use of the Service).
8.2. By Licensee. Licensee shall defend and hold harmless Sixgill, its affiliates and its and their directors, officers, employees and agents and its and their respective successors, heirs and assigns (collectively, the “Sixgill Parties”) against any Losses incurred by or imposed upon any of them in connection with any Claim (a) arising from or relating to any Licensee Materials (including any Claim that the Licensee Materials infringe, violate, or misappropriate the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party); (b) arising from or relating to Licensee’s use of the Service other than as permitted under this Agreement; or (c) arising from or relating to any breach by Licensee of any third-party agreement, including the terms or conditions governing the use of any third-party platform, network, or service.
8.3. Process. A Licensee Party or Sixgill Party requesting indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) will (a) provide the party providing indemnification hereunder (the “Indemnifying Party”) with prompt notice of any such Claim (provided, however, that failure to do so shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations hereunder except to the extent of any material prejudice to the Indemnifying Party as a direct result of such failure); (b) permit the Indemnifying Party to assume and control the defense of such action upon the Indemnifying Party’s written notice to the Indemnified Party of its intention to indemnify; and (c) upon the Indemnifying Party’s written request, provide to the Indemnifying Party all available information and assistance reasonably necessary for the Indemnifying Party to defend such Claim. The Indemnified Party shall have the right, at its sole cost and expense, to participate in the defense and settlement of any such Claim with counsel of its choice. Indemnifying Party will not enter into any settlement or compromise of any such Claim, which settlement or compromise would result in any liability to any Indemnified Party, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent.
9.1. Confidential Information. Licensee will maintain the strict confidentiality of the Service and all information and materials conveyed by Sixgill to Licensee hereunder, including but not limited to, financial information, pricing information, marketing information and the Service’s features and modes of operation, inventions (whether or not patentable), techniques, processes, algorithms, schematics, testing procedures, software design and architecture, computer code, internal documentation, design and function specifications, analysis and performance information, user documentation and other technical information, plans and data (collectively, the “Sixgill Proprietary Information”). This undertaking will not apply to information that becomes part of the public domain through no act or omission of Licensee or is in Licensee’s lawful possession prior to the date of this Agreement as demonstrated by written documentation. Licensee shall not use the Sixgill Proprietary Information for any other purpose other than to access and use the Service as provided in this Agreement.
9.2. Non-Disclosure. Licensee will not permit anyone other than its own most trusted employees with a need to know to access or use the Sixgill Proprietary Information. Licensee will not disclose the Sixgill Proprietary Information to any third party and will not use the Sixgill Proprietary Information other than as expressly authorized under this Agreement. Furthermore, Licensee: (a) recognizes that the unauthorized use or disclosure of Sixgill Proprietary Information will give rise to irreparable injury to Sixgill for which monetary damages may be an inadequate remedy; and (b) agrees that Sixgill may seek and obtain injunctive relief against the breach or threatened breach of Licensee’s obligations under this Agreement, in addition to any other legal and equitable remedies which may be available to Sixgill.
10.1. Choice of Law. This Agreement and any matters relating to it will be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to principles of conflicts of laws.
10.2. Arbitration. Any action or proceeding arising out of or relating to the Agreement shall be resolved by arbitration in Los Angeles, California in accordance with the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures of the American Arbitration Association and, in the event either party seeks injunctive or provisional relief, the Optional Rules for Emergency Measures of Protection. The arbitration will be heard and determined by a single arbitrator experienced in the software industry. LICENSEE MAY NOT ACT AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, NOR PARTICIPATE AS A MEMBER OF A CLASS OF CLAIMANTS, WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM. CLAIMS MAY NOT BE ARBITRATED ON A CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE BASIS. THE ARBITRATOR CAN DECIDE ONLY LICENSEE’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIMS. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN THE CLAIMS OF OTHER PERSONS OR PARTIES WHO MAY BE SIMILARLY SITUATED. The arbitrator’s decision in any arbitration will be final and binding upon the parties and may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. The prevailing party will be entitled to recover its attorneys’ fees and arbitration costs from the other party. The parties agree that the arbitration will be kept confidential and that the existence of the proceeding and any element of it (including, but not limited to, any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged and any testimony or other oral submissions and awards) will not be disclosed beyond the arbitration panel, except as may lawfully be required in judicial proceedings relating to the arbitration. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee acknowledges and agrees that in the event that Licensee breaches Section 1 or Section 9 of this Agreement, Sixgill, without limitation of its other rights and remedies, shall be entitled to seek immediate injunctive relief in any court of competent jurisdiction.
10.3. Assignment. Licensee may not sublicense, assign, delegate or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any of the related rights or obligations for any reason and any attempt by Licensee to sublicense, assign, delegate or transfer this Agreement or any of the related rights or obligations hereunder will cause the immediate termination of this Agreement. Sixgill may assign this agreement to a corporate affiliate or in connection with a merger, a sale of all or substantially all of Sixgill’s assets or other change of control transaction.
10.4. No Waiver. The failure of Sixgill to insist, in any one or more instances, upon the performance of any term or terms of this Agreement will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of its rights to such performance or future performance of such a term or terms, and the obligation of Licensee in respect thereto will continue in full force and effect.
10.5. Severability. In the event that an arbitrator or court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision or portion of a provision of this Agreement is invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable to any extent, the parties agree that such provision will be deemed to be modified to the minimal extent necessary to make such provision enforceable while still retaining the intent of the parties. In such event, the remainder of this Agreement and its application to other persons will not be affected thereby, and such remaining provisions of this Agreement will continue to be valid and may be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
10.6. Entire Agreement. This Agreement and, if applicable, any Enterprise Agreement to which your organization is a party, constitutes the complete and exclusive statement of the terms and agreement between Sixgill and Licensee and supersedes all prior representations, understandings and communications, oral or written, between the parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.
