6. INDEMNIFICATION

6.1 Blameless will indemnify and hold harmless Customer, its employees, affiliates, contractors agents or other representatives (each, a “Customer Indemnitee”) from and against any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements and expenses (including without limitation costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) payable by any Customer Indemnitee to any unrelated third party in connection with any third party claim or action arising from an alleged infringement by the Service of any United States patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other intellectual property right. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to portions or components of the Service (i) not created by or on behalf of Blameless, (ii) resulting in whole or in part in accordance with Customer specifications, (iii) that are modified after delivery by Blameless, (iv) combined with any third party products, processes or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (v) where Customer continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) where Customer’s use is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement and the Documentation. Customer will indemnify Blameless from all damages, costs, settlements, attorneys’ fees and expenses related to any claim of infringement or misappropriation excluded from Blameless’s indemnity obligation by the preceding sentence solely to the extent that any such damages, costs, settlements, attorneys’ fees and expenses are attributable to the actions of Customer, its affiliates, employees, or agents. If any part of the Service becomes, or in Blameless’s reasonable opinion is likely to become, subject to an infringement threat, claim or action, Blameless may, in its sole discretion (at its expense and in addition to its indemnification obligations hereunder): (i) secure the right for Customer to continue using the alleged infringing item; (ii) replace or modify the alleged infringing item to make such item non-infringing (provided that any such replacement or modification will not materially degrade the performance or quality of the Service in the aggregate), or (iii) terminate this Agreement, in which case Blameless will provide Customer with a pro-rated refund for the unused portion of the Fees.

6.2 Customer will indemnify and hold harmless Blameless, its employees, affiliates, contractors agents or other representatives (each, a “Blameless Indemnitee”) from and against any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements and expenses (including without limitation costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees) payable by any Blameless Indemnitee to any unrelated third party in connection with any third party claim or action arising from an alleged violation of Section 2.1 of this Agreement or alleging that the Customer Data, or Customer’s use of the Service in breach of this Agreement infringes or misappropriates such third party’s intellectual property rights or violates applicable laws.

6.3 Each party’s indemnification obligations under this Section 6 are conditioned on the indemnified party (i) promptly notifying the indemnifying party of the indemnifiable claim; (ii) permitting the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party’s option, to assume sole control over the defense and trial of any claim and any related settlement thereof, and (iii) at the request and expense of the indemnifying party, reasonably cooperating with the indemnifying party in the defense of any such claim. The indemnifying party shall not agree to any settlement that admits any wrongdoing on the part of the indemnified party, imposes civil or criminal liability on any indemnified party, or requires any specific performance by any indemnified party without the indemnifying party first obtaining the indemnified party’s written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.

7. SUBSCRIPTION TERM; PAYMENT OF FEES

7.1 Unless otherwise specified on the applicable Order Form, each Service Term shall begin on the effective date of the applicable Order Form and expire 12 months thereafter (“Initial Service Term”).

Fees under this Agreement are exclusive of all taxes, including national, state or provincial and local use, sales, value-added, property and similar taxes, if any. Customer agrees to pay such taxes (excluding U.S. taxes based on Blameless’s net income) unless Customer has provided Blameless with a valid exemption certificate. In the case of any withholding requirements, Customer will pay any required withholding itself and will not reduce the amount paid to Customer on account thereof.
