Any party entitled to indemnification under this Article VI (an “Indemnified Party”) will give written notice to the indemnifying party of any matters giving rise to a claim for indemnification; provided, that the failure of any party entitled to indemnification hereunder to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Article VI except to the extent that the indemnifying party is actually prejudiced by such failure to give notice. In case any action, proceeding or claim is brought against an Indemnified Party in respect of which indemnification is sought hereunder, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to participate in and, unless in the reasonable judgment of the Indemnified Party a conflict of interest between it and the indemnifying party may exist with respect of such action, proceeding or claim, to assume the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party. In the event that the indemnifying party advises an Indemnified Party that it will contest such a claim for indemnification hereunder, or fails, within thirty (30) days of receipt of any indemnification notice to notify, in writing, such person of its election to defend, settle or compromise, at its sole cost and expense, any action, proceeding or claim (or discontinues its defense at any time after it commences such defense), then the Indemnified Party may, at its option, defend, settle or otherwise compromise or pay such action or claim. In any event, unless and until the indemnifying party elects in writing to assume and does so assume the defense of any such claim, proceeding or action, the Indemnified Party’s costs and expenses arising out of the defense, settlement or compromise of any such action, claim or proceeding shall be losses subject to indemnification hereunder. The Indemnified Party shall cooperate fully with the indemnifying party in connection with any negotiation or defense of any such action or claim by the indemnifying party and shall furnish to the indemnifying party all information reasonably available to the Indemnified Party which relates to such action or claim. The indemnifying party shall keep the Indemnified Party fully apprised at all times as to the status of the defense or any settlement negotiations with respect thereto. If the indemnifying party elects to defend any such action or claim, then the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to participate in such defense with counsel of its choice at its sole cost and expense. The indemnifying party shall not be liable for any settlement of any action, claim or proceeding effected without its prior written consent, provided, however, that the indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement if the indemnifying party is advised of the settlement but fails to respond to the settlement within thirty (30) days of receipt of such notification. Notwithstanding anything in this Article VI to the contrary, the indemnifying party shall not, without the Indemnified Party’s prior written consent, settle or compromise any claim or consent to entry of any judgment in respect thereof which imposes any future obligation on the Indemnified Party or which does not include, as an unconditional term thereof, the giving by the claimant or the plaintiff to the Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect of such claim. The indemnification required by this Article VI shall be made by periodic payments of the amount thereof during the course of investigation or defense, as and when bills are received or expense, loss, damage or liability is incurred, so long as the Indemnified Party irrevocably agrees to refund such moneys if it is ultimately determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that such party was not entitled to indemnification. The indemnity agreements contained herein shall be in addition to (a) any cause of action or similar rights of the Indemnified Party against the indemnifying party or others, and (b) any liabilities the indemnifying party may be subject to pursuant to the law.
第6.2节 补偿程序。任何依据此第六条有权享有补偿的当事方（“受补偿方”）应就任何因此补偿而引出的诉讼请求向补偿方发出书面通知；前提是，若受补偿方未能发出此通知，补偿方仍需承担其在此第六条下的补偿责任，除非此不作为会对补偿方产生不公正结果。在就此补偿而向受补偿方提出的任何诉讼，诉讼程序或诉讼请求中，补偿方应有权参与其中并与法律顾问一起提出受补偿方合理的觉得满意的抗辩，除非依据受补偿方的合理的判断，存在利益冲突，并且补偿方很可能在此诉讼，诉讼程序或诉讼请求中胜出。若补偿方告知受补偿方其将应诉，或在收到任何关于补偿的通知后的三十（30）天内未能书面通知受补偿方其将选择自费应诉，调解或折中方式（或在应诉后的任何时候停止抗辩），则受补偿方可自由选择应诉，调解或其它折中方法，或支付此诉讼或诉讼请求的费用。在任何情况下，除非补偿方书面选择并确已开始抗辩，因此抗辩，调节或折中方式而产生的受补偿方的费用和花销应为可依此条款补偿的款项。受补偿方应就此诉讼或诉讼请求的协商或抗辩与补偿方全力合作，并向补偿方提供受补偿方可合理获取的与此诉讼或诉讼请求相关的所有信息。补偿方应将抗辩或任何调解协商的进展情况及时通知受补偿方。若补偿方选择应诉此诉 讼或诉讼请求，则受补偿方应有权自费与法律顾问参与到此抗辩中。补偿方不因任何未获其书面同意便生效的调解而承担责任，但是，若已将调解告知补偿方，但补偿方未能在收到此通知的三十（30）天内回应，则补偿方应对此调解承担责任。除非与此第六条规定相冲突，若未得到受补偿方的事先书面同意，补偿方不得同意调解或采用折中方式或同意任何要求受补偿方承担任何将来义务的判决或者不包含要求起诉方或原告免除所有受补偿方与此诉讼请求相关的所有责任这一无条件条款的判决。只要受补偿方同意（此同意为不可撤回）若适格法律管辖区的法院最终判定此当事方无权获得补偿，受补偿方将退还此所有补偿，则在调查或抗辩过程中收到的账单的款项，或在此期间产生的花销，损失，损害赔偿或责任的补偿应分期支付。此补偿协议是以下权利的补充（a）受补偿方针对补偿方所享有的任何诉因，及（b）任何补偿方可能依法承担的责任。
