ALL THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” AND ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY OF OR CONCERNING ANY THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS IS STRICTLY BETWEEN CUSTOMER AND THE THIRD-PARTY OWNER OR DISTRIBUTOR OF THE THIRD-PARTY MATERIALS.
11.1) Zenoti Indemnification. Zenoti shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer and Customer’s officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns (each, a “Customer Indemnitee”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by Customer Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a Customer Indemnitee) that Customer’s use of the Services (excluding Customer Data and Third-Party Materials) in accordance with this Agreement (including the Specifications) infringes or misappropriates such third party’s Intellectual Property Rights. The foregoing obligation does not apply to the extent that the alleged infringement arises from: (a) Third-Party Materials or Customer Data; (b) access to or use of the Zenoti Materials in combination with any hardware, system, software, network, or other materials or service not provided by Zenoti or specified for Customer’s use in the Documentation; (c) modification of the Zenoti Materials other than: (i) by or on behalf of Zenoti; or (ii) with Zenoti’s written approval in accordance with Zenoti’s written specification; (d) failure to timely implement any Updates made available to Customer by or on behalf of Zenoti; or (e) act, omission, or other matter described in Section 11.2(a), Section 11.2(b), Section 11.2(c), or Section 11.2(d), whether or not the same results in any Action against or Losses by any Zenoti Indemnitee.

Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Zenoti and its Subcontractors and Affiliates, and each of its and their respective officers, directors, employees, agents, successors, and assigns (each, a “Zenoti Indemnitee”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by such Zenoti Indemnitee resulting from any Action by a third party (other than an Affiliate of a Zenoti Indemnitee) that arise out of or result from, or are alleged to arise out of or result from: (a) Customer Data, including any Processing of Customer Data by or on behalf of Zenoti in accordance with this Agreement; (b) any other materials or information (including any documents, data, specifications, software, content, or technology) provided by or on behalf of Customer or any Authorized User, including Zenoti’s compliance with any specifications or directions provided by or on behalf of Customer or any Authorized User to the extent prepared without any contribution by Zenoti; (a) allegation of facts that, if true, would constitute Customer’s breach of any of its representations, warranties, covenants, or obligations under this Agreement; (b) use of the Services by Customer not authorized or in accordance with this Agreement; or (c) gross negligence or more culpable act or omission (including recklessness or willful misconduct) by Customer, any Authorized User, or any third party on behalf of Customer or any Authorized User, in connection with this Agreement.
11.3) Indemnification Procedure. Each party shall promptly notify the other party in writing of any Action for which such party believes it is entitled to be indemnified pursuant to Section 11.1 or Section 11.2, as the case may be. The party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnitee”) shall cooperate with the other party (the “Indemnitor”) at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitor shall promptly assume control of the defense and shall employ counsel [of its choice/reasonably acceptable to the Indemnitee] to handle and defend the same, at the Indemnitor’s sole cost and expense. The Indemnitee may participate in and observe the proceedings at its own cost and expense with counsel of its own choosing. The Indemnitor shall not settle any Action without the Indemnitee’s prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. If the Indemnitor fails or refuses to assume control of the defense of such Action, the Indemnitee shall have the right, but no obligation, to defend against such Action, including settling such Action after giving notice to the Indemnitor, in each case in such manner and on such terms as the Indemnitee may deem appropriate. The Indemnitee’s failure to perform any obligations under this Section 11.3 will not relieve the Indemnitor of its obligations under this Section 11, except to the extent that the Indemnitor can demonstrate that it has been prejudiced as a result of such failure.
11.4) Mitigation. If any of the Services or Zenoti Materials are, or in Zenoti’s opinion are likely to be, claimed to infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any third-party Intellectual Property Right, or if Customer’s or any Authorized User’s use of the Services or Zenoti Materials is enjoined or threatened to be enjoined, Zenoti may, at its option and sole cost and expense: (a) obtain the right for Customer to continue to use the Services and Zenoti Materials [materially] as contemplated by this Agreement; (b) modify or replace the Services and Zenoti Materials, in whole or in part, to seek to make the Services and Zenoti Materials (as so modified or replaced) non-infringing, while providing [materially] equivalent features and functionality, in which case such modifications or replacements will constitute Services and Zenoti Materials, as applicable, under this Agreement; or (c) by written notice to Customer, terminate this Agreement with respect to all or part of the Services and Zenoti Materials, and require Customer to immediately cease any use of the Services and Zenoti Materials or any specified part or feature thereof.
11.5) Sole Remedy. THIS SECTION 11 SETS FORTH CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDIES AND ZENOTI’S SOLE LIABILITY AND OBLIGATION FOR ANY ACTUAL, THREATENED, OR ALLEGED CLAIMS THAT THE SERVICES AND ZENOTI MATERIALS OR ANY SUBJECT MATTER OF THIS AGREEMENT INFRINGES, MISAPPROPRIATES, OR OTHERWISE VIOLATES ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF ANY THIRD PARTY.

If any term or provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Agreement or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction.

15.14) Governing Law; Jurisdiction.

Any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of or related to this Agreement will be instituted in the federal or state courts of the State of Washington, U.S.A. in each case located in the city of Seattle, Washington and County of King, and each party irrevocably submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts in any such suit, action, or proceeding.

15.16) Equitable Relief. Each party acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach by such party of any of its obligations under Section 8 (Confidentiality) or, in the case of Customer, Section 4.1 (Use Restrictions), would cause the other party irreparable harm for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy and that, in the event of such breach or threatened breach, the other party will be entitled to equitable relief, including a restraining order, an injunction, specific performance, and any other relief that may be available from any court, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, or to prove actual damages or that monetary damages are not an adequate remedy. Such remedies are not exclusive and are in addition to all other remedies that may be available at law, in equity, or otherwise.
15.17) Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement.
