6.1 Licensor agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Licensee and its Affiliates and Representatives (collectively, the “Licensee Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any claims brought by any third-party against the Licensee Indemnified Parties to the extent such claims are based on or arise out of allegations that the Software or the Software Changes infringe upon the Intellectual Property Rights of any third-party. Licensor shall have no liability or responsibility under the foregoing sentence to the extent such third-party claims are based on or arise out of customizations or enhancements to the Software or the Software Changes made by Licensee without Licensor’s knowledge.
6.2 Licensee agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold Licensor and its Affiliates and Representatives (collectively, the “Licensor Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any claims brought by any third-party against the Licensor Indemnified Parties to the extent such claims are based on or arise out of customizations or enhancements to the Software or Software Changes made by Licensee without Licensor’s knowledge.
6.3 The indemnification obligations set forth herein are contingent upon the party to be indemnified (“Indemnified Party”):
(a) Giving the party providing indemnification hereunder (“Indemnifying Party”) prompt written notice of any action brought against the Indemnified Party; and

6.4 NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY, NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER PARTY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST REVENUES OR PROFITS, LOSS OF USE, OR LOSS OF GOODWILL OR REPUTATION) WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SOFTWARE, WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE AND STRICT LIABILITY), REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY WAS ADVISED, HAD OTHER REASON TO KNOW, OR IN FACT KNEW OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF.
7.1. Each party that receives information from the other party hereto (the “Receiving Party”) undertakes to retain in confidence the terms of this Agreement and all other non-public information, technology, Customer Information, materials and know-how of the other party (the “Disclosing Party”) disclosed or acquired by the Receiving Party pursuant to or in connection with this Agreement that is either designated as proprietary or confidential or, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding disclosure, ought in good faith to be treated as proprietary or confidential (“Confidential Information”); provided that each party may disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement to its immediate legal and financial consultants in the ordinary course of its business. The Receiving Party will not use any Confidential Information for any purpose other than to carry out the activities contemplated by this Agreement. The Receiving Party agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information, and in any event, to take precautions at least as great as those taken to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature.
7.2 The Receiving Party will promptly notify the Disclosing Party in writing in the event that the Receiving Party learns of any unauthorized use or disclosure of any Confidential Information that it has received from the Disclosing Party, and will cooperate in good faith to remedy such occurrence to the extent reasonably possible. The restrictions set forth in this Section 7 will not apply to any information that: (a) was known by the Receiving Party without an obligation of confidentiality prior to disclosure thereof by the Disclosing Party; (b) was in or entered the public domain through no fault of the Receiving Party; (c) is disclosed to the Receiving Party by a third party legally entitled to make such disclosure without violation of any obligation of confidentiality; (d) is required to be disclosed by applicable laws or regulations (but in such event, only to the extent required to be disclosed); or (e) is independently developed by the Receiving Party without reference to any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.
7.3 Upon request of the Disclosing Party, the Receiving Party will return all materials, in any medium, that contain or reveal all or any part of any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party or certify to the Disclosing Party destruction of the Receiving Party’s copies of Confidential Information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Receiving Party may retain Confidential Information only the extent required by applicable laws or regulations. The Receiving Party acknowledges that breach of this provision by it would result in irreparable harm to the Disclosing Party, for which money damages would be an insufficient remedy, and therefore that the Disclosing Party will be entitled to seek injunctive relief to enforce the provisions this Section.
7.4 Under no circumstances will Licensee’s Confidential Information (whether stored electronically or in hard copy format) be directly or indirectly transmitted to or accessed from any location that is not subject to the laws and jurisdiction of the United States of America without the prior written consent of Licensee. Neither Licensor nor its Representatives shall directly or indirectly access any Customer Information or Licensee’s software, networks, systems or data from any location that is not subject to the laws and jurisdiction of the United States of America without the prior written consent of Licensee. If Licensor’s Representatives store or access Customer Information on a portable device, such Customer Information must be encrypted in a reasonable manner.
8.1 Licensor will maintain and enforce safety, electronic, and physical security procedures with respect to its access, use, and possession of Licensee’s Confidential Information, including Customer Information, that are (i) compliant with Licensee’s information security guidelines, policies and requirements (including Database Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) templates, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards, and Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) frameworks), which may be provided by Licensee to Licensor from time to time or, if such guidelines, policies and requirements are not provided by Licensee, at least compliant with the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) standards and other industry standards for such types of locations, and (ii) which provide appropriate technical and organizational safeguards against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration or unauthorized disclosure or access of such information.
8.2 Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensor will take all reasonable measures to secure and defend its locations and equipment against “hackers” and others who may seek, without authorization, to modify or access Licensor systems or the information found therein. Licensor will periodically test its systems for potential areas where security could be breached.
8.3 Licensor (a) will deliver to Licensee a root cause assessment and future incident mitigation plan with regard to any breach of security or unauthorized access affecting Licensee’s Confidential Information, (b) will provide Licensee all written details regarding Licensor’s internal investigation regarding any security breach, (c) upon Licensee’s request, provide a second more in-depth investigation and results of findings, (d) agrees not to notify any regulatory authority nor any Customer or consumer, on behalf of Licensee unless Licensee specifically requests in writing that Licensor do so, and (e) shall cooperate with Licensee to work together to formulate a plan to rectify all security breaches.
