Any information, design, specification, instruction,
software, service, data, hardware, content or material ("Material"), is subject
to and if a third party makes a claim against either you or High Point
("Recipient" which may refer to you or High Point depending upon which party
received the Material), for Material furnished by either you or High Point
("Provider" which may refer to you or High Point depending on which party
provided the Material), and used by the Recipient infringes its intellectual
property rights, the Provider, at its 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:
7.1 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);
7.2 gives the Provider sole control of the
defense and any settlement negotiations; and

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 High Point’s ability to meet its obligations under the
relevant order, then High Point may, at its option and upon 30 days prior
written notice, terminate the order. The Provider will not indemnify the
Recipient if the Recipient alters the Material or uses it outside the scope of
use identified in the Provider’s user documentation or services policies or if
the Recipient uses a version of the Materials which has been superseded, if the
infringement claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current
version of the Material which was provided to the Recipient. The Provider will not
indemnify the Recipient to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon
(i) any information, design, specification, instruction, software, data, or
material not furnished by the Provider, or (ii) any Material from a third party
portal or other external source that is accessible to you within or from the
service (e.g., a third party Web page accessed via a hyperlink). High Point
will not indemnify you to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon
the combination of any Material with any products or services not provided by High
Point. High Point 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 the agreement would not otherwise infringe any
third party intellectual property rights. High Point will not indemnify you for
any infringement claim that is based on: (1) a patent that you were made aware
of prior to the effective date of the agreement (pursuant to a claim, demand,
or notice); or (2) your actions prior to the effective date of the agreement.
