14.1 Subject to the terms of this Section 14 (Indemnification), if a third party makes a claim against either You or EWI Global (“Recipient” which may refer to You or EWI Global depending upon which party received the Material), that any information, design, specification, instruction, software, service, data, hardware, or material (collectively, “Material”) furnished by either You or EWI Global (“Provider” which may refer to You or EWI Global depending on which party provided the Material) and used by the Recipient infringes the third party’s intellectual property rights, the Provider, at the Provider’s sole cost and expense, will defend the Recipient against the claim and indemnify the Recipient from the damages, liabilities, costs and expenses awarded by the court to the third party claiming infringement or the settlement agreed to by the Provider, if the Recipient does the following: a. notifies the Provider promptly in writing, not later than 30 days after the Recipient receives notice of the claim (or sooner if required by applicable law); b. gives the Provider sole control of the defence and any settlement negotiations; and c. gives the Provider the information, authority and assistance the Provider needs to defend against or settle the claim.

14.2 If the Provider believes or it is determined that any of the Material may have violated a third party’s intellectual property rights, the Provider may choose to either modify the Material to be non-infringing (while substantially preserving its utility or functionality) or obtain a license to allow for continued use, or if these alternatives are not commercially reasonable, the Provider may end the license for, and require return of, the applicable Material and refund any unused, prepaid fees the Recipient may have paid to the other party for such Material. If such return materially affects EWI Global’s ability to meet its obligations under the relevant order, then EWI Global may, at its option and upon 30 days prior written notice, terminate the order.

14.3 The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient if the Recipient (a) alters the Material or uses it outside the scope of use identified in the Provider’s user or program documentation or Service Specifications, (b) uses a version of the Material which has been superseded, if the infringement claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current version of the Material which was made available to the Recipient, or (c) continues to use the applicable Material after the end of the license to use that Material. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon any information, design, specification, instruction, software, service, data, hardware or material not furnished by the Provider. EWI Global will not indemnify You for any portion of an infringement claim that is based upon the combination of any Material with any products or Services not provided by EWI Global. EWI Global will not indemnify You to the extent that an infringement claim is based on Third Party Content or any Material from a third party portal or other external source that is accessible to You within or from the Services (e.g., a social media post from a third party blog or forum, a third party Web page accessed via a hyperlink, etc.). EWI Global will not indemnify You for infringement caused by Your actions against any third party if the Services as delivered to You and used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement would not otherwise infringe any third-party intellectual property rights. EWI Global will not indemnify You for any intellectual property infringement claim(s) known to You at the time Services rights are obtained.

14.4 The term “Material” defined above does not include Separately Licensed Third-Party Technology.

14.5 This Section 14 provides the parties’ exclusive remedy for any infringement claims or damages.
