Any controversy or claim arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement, or the making, performance, or interpretation thereof, shall be adjudicated by the Courts of California and may only be brought by a party if it is permitted pursuant to and is brought in accordance with the provisions of this Article VI. No party may bring any claim for breach, loss or damage arising out of, or relating to, this Agreement, or the making, performance, or interpretation thereof, unless the party bringing such claim is entitled to indemnification for such breach, loss or damage pursuant to Article VI of this Agreement.
(a) Indemnification by Sellers. From and after the Closing, each Seller agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify the Purchasers against all actual losses, damages and expenses (collectively, “Losses”) actually incurred by such Purchasers, caused by (i) any breach of any representation or warranty made by each Seller in Article III of this Agreement; and (ii) any breach of any covenant or obligation of each Seller in this Agreement or any documents required to be performed by each Seller after the Closing Date. The representations and warranties of each Seller contained in this Agreement (including all schedules and exhibits hereto) shall survive the Closing for a period of one (1) year. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement each Seller’s aggregate liability in respect of all claims that the Company and/or any and all Purchasers may have against it pursuant to this Agreement will not exceed that applicable amount of the Gross Purchase Price applied to such Seller.
(b) Indemnification by Purchasers. From and after the Closing, each Purchaser agrees, severally and not jointly, to indemnify the Company and the Sellers and each of their affiliates and each of their managers, directors, officers, employees, agents and advisors (including financial advisors, attorneys and accountants) against all actual Losses actually incurred by the Sellers, caused by (i) any breach of any representation or warranty made by such Purchaser in this Agreement or in any document or certificate delivered by the Sellers pursuant to this Agreement; and (ii) any breach of any covenant or obligation of such Purchaser this Agreement or any documents required to be performed by any Purchaser on or prior to the Closing Date or after the Closing Date.
6.03. Indemnification Procedures.
(a) Except to the extent set forth in this Section 6.03, a Party will not have any liability under the indemnity provisions of this Agreement with respect to a particular matter unless a written notice (a “Claim Notice”) setting forth in reasonable detail: (i) the breach or other matter giving rise to such indemnification claim which is asserted, (ii) the estimated amount, if reasonably practicable, of the Losses that have been incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection therewith, and (iii) copies of any notices, claims or complaints sent or filed by the claimant, has been given to the Indemnifying Party promptly, but in any event within thirty (30) days, after the Indemnified Party becomes aware of such claim (including the assertion or commencement of any third-party claim). Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, failure of the Indemnified Party to give timely notice hereunder shall not release the Indemnifying Party from its obligations under this Section 6.03, except to the extent the Indemnifying Party is actually prejudiced by such failure to give notice. With respect to Losses described in Section 6.02(a), the Seller whose breach caused the Loss shall be the “Indemnifying Party” and the applicable Purchaser who incurred such Loss, shall be the “Indemnified Party”. With respect to Losses described in Section 6.02(b), the Purchaser whose breach caused the Loss shall be the “Indemnifying Party” and each Seller or its affiliate or Representative who incurred such Loss, as applicable, shall be the “Indemnified Party”.
(b) Upon receipt of notice of any claim, suit, action or legal proceeding by a third party for which indemnification might be claimed by an Indemnified Party (a “Third-Party Claim”), the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to defend, contest or otherwise protect against the Third-Party Claim at its own cost and expense, by providing written notice to the Indemnified Party of such election within thirty (30) days after the Indemnified Party receives a Claim Notice with respect to such Third-Party Claim, and the Indemnified Party must cooperate in any such defense or other action; provided, that the Indemnifying Party may not control the defense of any Third-Party Claim that is criminal in nature or that seeks non-monetary equitable relief that would reasonably be expected to be material to the Indemnified Party if adversely determined. The Indemnified Party shall have the right, but not the obligation, to participate at its own expense in defense thereof by counsel of its own choosing, but the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to control the defense unless the Indemnifying Party does not elect to assume defense of the Third-Party Claim, is not entitled under this Section 6.03 to control the defense of the Third-Party Claim or fails to competently conduct the defense of such Third-Party Claim. If the Indemnifying Party undertakes the defense of a Third-Party Claim, the Indemnified Party shall not, so long as the Indemnifying Party competently conducts the defense thereof, be entitled to recover from the Indemnifying Party any legal or other expenses subsequently incurred by the Indemnified Party in connection with the defense thereof, except (i) where separate representation is necessary, in the reasonable opinion of counsel to the Indemnified Party, to avoid a conflict of interest that cannot be waived such that representation of both parties by the same counsel would violate processional standards of conduct for attorneys in the jurisdiction where the Indemnifying Party’s counsel is practicing on behalf of the Indemnifying Party, or (ii) reasonable costs of investigation undertaken by the Indemnified Party with the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party. If the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense of a Third-Party Claim, no compromise or settlement of the Third-Party Claim may be effected by the Indemnifying Party without the Indemnified Party’s consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). In the event the Indemnifying Party does not elect to assume control of the Third-Party Claim or otherwise is not entitled to control such Third-Party Claim in accordance with this Section 6.03, the Indemnified Party shall have the right, but not the obligation, thereafter to defend, contest or otherwise protect against the same and make any compromise or settlement thereof and recover the entire cost thereof from the Indemnifying Party including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, disbursements and all amounts paid as a result of such Third-Party Claim or the compromise or settlement thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Indemnified Party may not compromise or settle any Third-Party Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned).

If, in the absence of a protective order or other remedy or the receipt of a waiver by the Providing Party, the Disclosing Party is nonetheless, in the opinion of counsel, legally compelled to disclose the information of the Providing Party, the Disclosing Party may, without liability hereunder, disclose only that portion of the Providing Party’s information which such counsel advises is legally required to be disclosed, provided that the Disclosing Party exercises its reasonable efforts to preserve the confidentiality of the Providing Party’s information, including, without limitation, by cooperating with the Providing Party to obtain an appropriate protective order or other relief assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded the Providing Party’s information.
(b) If the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are not consummated, each party will return or destroy all of such written information each party has regarding the other party.
