EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS IS SEVERABLE AND INDEPENDENT OF ALL OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT, AND EACH OF THESE PROVISIONS WILL APPLY EVEN IF THEY HAVE FAILED OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE.
8.1 Indemnification by Company. Company will indemnify, defend and hold Customer and the officers, directors, agents, and employees of Customer (“Customer Indemnified Parties”) harmless from settlement amounts and damages, liabilities, penalties, costs and expenses of whatever kind (“Liabilities”) that are payable to any third party by the Customer Indemnified Parties (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising from any claim, demand or allegation by a third party relating to or arising out of a claim that the Company Platform infringes or misappropriates any third party’s intellectual property rights (except for claims for which Company is entitled to indemnification under Section 8.2, in which case Company will have no indemnification obligations with respect to such claim). Company will have no liability or obligation under this Section 8.1 with respect to any Liability if such Liability is caused in whole or in part by: (a) modification of the Company Platform by any party other than Company; (b) the combination, operation, or use of the Company Platform with other product(s), data or services where the Company Platform would not by itself be infringing; or (c) unauthorized or improper use of the Company Platform.

8.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will indemnify, defend and hold Company and the officers, directors, agents, and employees of Company (“Company Indemnified Parties”) harmless from Liabilities that are payable to any third party by the Company Indemnified Parties (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising from, directly or indirectly, any claim, demand or allegation by a third party that arises out of or is in connection with any use by Customer or its End Users of the Company Platform in violation of (i) this Agreement, or (ii) any applicable law.
8.3 Action in Response to Potential Infringement. If the use of the Company Platform by Customer has become, or in Company’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of any claim of infringement, Company may at its option and expense (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the Company Platform as set forth hereunder; (b) replace or modify the Company Platform to make it non-infringing so long as the Company Platform has at least equivalent functionality; (c) substitute an equivalent for the Company Platform or (d) if options (a)-(c) are not reasonably practicable, terminate this Agreement.
8.4 Indemnification Procedure. If a Customer Indemnified Party or a Company Indemnified Party (each, an “Indemnified Party”) becomes aware of any matter it believes it should be indemnified under Section 8.1 or Section 8.2, as applicable, involving any claim, action, suit, investigation, arbitration or other proceeding against the Indemnified Party by any third party (each an “Action”), the Indemnified Party will give the other Party (the “Indemnifying Party”) prompt written notice of such Action. The Indemnified Party will cooperate, at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel in the defense and the Indemnified Party will have the right to participate fully, at its own expense, in the defense of such Action with counsel of its own choosing. Any compromise or settlement of an Action will require the prior written consent of both Parties hereunder, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

To the extent there is a conflict between these terms and conditions and the Order Form, these terms and conditions shall govern unless the Order Form expressly amends these terms and conditions. The exchange of a fully executed Order Form by fax or electronic signature will be sufficient to bind the Parties to these terms and conditions and the Order Form.
10.2 Amendment and Modification; Waiver. This Agreement may not be amended, modified, or waived, in whole or part, except in writing and signed by an officer or duly authorized representative of both parties. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement, no failure to exercise, or delay in exercising, any rights, remedy, power, or privilege arising from this Agreement will operate or be construed as a waiver thereof; nor shall any single or partial exercise of any right, remedy, power, or privilege hereunder preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, remedy, power, or privilege.
10.3 Severability. The terms and conditions of this Agreement are severable. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will be binding on the Parties and their successors and assigns.
10.5 Counterparts. This Agreement, including the Order Form, may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

10.6 Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors. No agency, partnership, joint venture, or employment is created as a result of this Agreement and a Party does not have any authority of any kind to bind the other Party in any respect whatsoever.
10.7 Notices. All notices under this Agreement will be in writing and sent to the recipient’s address as set forth in the Order Form and will be deemed to have been duly given when received, if personally delivered; when receipt is electronically confirmed, if transmitted by facsimile or email; the day after it is sent, if sent for next day delivery by recognized overnight delivery service; and upon receipt, if sent by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested.
10.8 Force Majeure. Each party will be excused from performance for any period during which, and to the extent that, it is prevented from performing any obligation or service, in whole or in part, as a result of a cause beyond its reasonable control and without its fault or negligence, including, but not limited to, acts of God, acts of war, epidemics, fire, communication line failures, power failures, earthquakes, floods, blizzard, or other natural disasters (but excluding failure caused by a Party's financial condition or any internal labor problems (including strikes, lockouts, work stoppages or slowdowns, or the threat thereof)) (a “Force Majeure Event”). Delays in performing obligations due to a Force Majeure Event will automatically extend the deadline for performing such obligations for a period equal to the duration of such Force Majeure Event. Except as otherwise agreed upon by the Parties in writing, in the event such non-performance continues for a period of thirty (30) days or more, either Party may terminate this Agreement by giving written notice thereof to the other Party.
10.9 Governing Law; Submission to Jurisdiction. This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts without regard to its conflict of laws provisions. For all disputes relating to this Agreement, each Party submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Boston, Massachusetts and waives any jurisdictional, venue, or inconvenient forum objections to such courts.
10.10 Equitable Relief. Customer acknowledges that any unauthorized use of the Company Platform will cause irreparable harm and injury to Company for which there is no adequate remedy at law. In addition to all other remedies available under this Agreement, at law or in equity, Customer further agrees that Company will be entitled to injunctive relief in the event Customer uses the Company Platform in violation of the limited license granted herein or uses the Company Platform in any way not expressly permitted by this Agreement. In any action or proceeding to enforce rights under this Agreement, the prevailing Party will be entitled to recover costs and attorneys’ fees. Failure by either Party to enforce any provision of this Agreement will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other provision.
