(b) The representations and warranties of the Company contained in or made pursuant to this Agreement shall survive the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the Closing, until (1) in case of Section 2.11 (Intellectual Property), until the 30th months anniversary of the Closing Date; (2) in case of Sections 2.2 (Organization), 2.4 (Authorization) and 2.6 (No Conflict; Consents), until the expiration of the applicable statute of limitation period; and (3) other than as set forth in clause (1) above, the 24th months anniversary of the Closing Date; in each case, with respect to any theretofore un-asserted claims as set forth in clause (d) below;
(c) In respect to Section 7.1(b) above, no limitation shall apply to breach of any representation or warranty which constitutes fraud or willful misrepresentation by the Company (“Fraud”). The applicable survival period shall be referred to, as applicable, as the “Claims Period”.
(d) Except for Fraud, the Company shall have any liability with respect to any breach of representation and warranty, unless a claim is made hereunder prior to the expiration of the Claims Period for such representation and warranty, in which case such representation and warranty shall survive as to that claim until the claim has been finally resolved.
(e) It is the intention of the parties hereto that the Claims Periods supersede any statute of limitations applicable to the representations and warranties, and this Section 7.1 constitutes a separate written legally binding agreement among the parties hereto in accordance with the provisions of Section 19 of the Israeli Limitation Law, 1958.
(a) Indemnifiable Losses. The Indemnitor shall indemnify the Investor (including its shareholders, limited and general partners directors and officers) (each, an “Indemnitee”) against, and hold each Indemnitee harmless from all claims, actions, suits, settlements, damages, expenses (including, reasonable legal costs and expenses), losses, or costs sustained or incurred by such Indemnitees (collectively, “Losses”) resulting from, or arising out of, a breach or misrepresentations of any the Indemnitor’s representations, warranties or covenants made in this Agreement, subject to the limitations in this Section 7.
(b) Limitations. The Indemnitee’s right for indemnification hereunder is subject to the following conditions and limitations, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, but in to any other limitation or condition contained herein; provided, however, no limitation shall apply to Fraud:
(i) No Indemnitor shall be liable for any Loss, unless and until the aggregate of Losses equal or exceeds US$50,000, in which case indemnification shall be made from the first dollar amount.
(ii) The Indemnitor’s liability shall be limited to the Purchase Price and each Indemnitee shall be entitled to receive a pro rata share of the indemnifiable Loss, based the Purchase Price.
(c) Claims Notice; Third Party Claims. In the event that an Indemnitee wishes to assert a claim for indemnification hereunder it shall give the Indemnitor a prompt written notice thereof (a “Claims Notice”), which shall describe in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances upon which the asserted claim for indemnification is based and thereafter keep the Indemnitor informed, in all material respects, with respect thereto. In the event that such Claims Notice results from a third party claim against the Indemnitee, such Indemnitee shall promptly upon becoming aware of the commencement of proceedings by such third party provide the Indemnitor with the Claims Notice and the Indemnitor shall have the right to assume the defense thereof (at Indemnitor’s expense) with counsel mutually satisfactory to the parties; provided, however, that the Indemnitees shall have the right to retain their own counsel, at the reasonable expense of the Indemnitor, and within the indemnification limitations herein, if representation of all parties by the counsel retained by the Indemnitor would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between the parties in such proceeding. Failure of the Indemnitees to give prompt notice or to keep it informed, as provided herein, shall not relieve the Indemnitor of any of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent that the Indemnitor is actually and materially prejudiced by such failure. The Indemnitor shall not be liable nor shall it be required to indemnify or hold harmless the Indemnitee in connection with any settlement effected without its consent in writing, which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
(d) Sole Remedy. The indemnification provided by the Indemnitor hereunder and the enforcement of such indemnification shall be the exclusive remedy available to the Indemnitees under this Agreement, other than for Fraud; provided that this provision does not limit the right to seek specific performance, a restraining order or injunctive relief with respect to any provision of this Agreement.
8.1 Further Assurances. Each of the parties hereto shall perform such further acts and execute such further documents as may reasonably be necessary to carry out and give full effect to the provisions of this Agreement and the intentions of the parties as reflected thereby.

Any amendment or waiver effected in accordance with this Section 8.3 shall be binding upon the Investor and each transferee of the Purchased Securities, each future holder of all such securities and the Company.
8.4 Assignment; Successors and Assigns. None of the rights, privileges or obligations set forth in, arising under, or created by this Agreement may be assigned or transferred by an Investor, without the prior written consent of the Company.
