Each party represents and warrants that it has the legal power and authority to enter into this Agreement and there is no outstanding contract, commitment, or legal impediment which may limit, restrict, or impair its ability to perform its obligations hereunder. In addition, Demandbase represents and warrants that it has all necessary rights and titles in and to the Service. In addition, Customer represents and warrants that its use of the Services will comply with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including those laws and regulations regarding telemarketing, customer solicitation, data protection, and privacy.
(a) The parties each acknowledge that the other party treats its products, development processes, business methods, business information, and prices as confidential to the extent permitted by the laws of the State of California and that they constitute the commercially valuable proprietary products and/or services and trade secrets of the respective party, regardless of whether they may be copyrighted, patented or trademarked.
(b) During the Term of this Agreement, each party will learn or receive information about the other which the other treats as confidential, including but not limited to all business, marketing, financial and customer-related data (“Confidential Information”). Each party agrees that Confidential Information received from the other shall be treated as confidential and protected in the same manner as the receiving party treats its own confidential information (but in no event less than reasonable care). Each party agrees not to transfer, distribute or disclose to any third party any Confidential Information of the other, except as expressly authorized in writing by the other and shall confine knowledge and use of the Confidential Information received by the other to those of its employees and contractors who require such knowledge and use of the information in the ordinary course of and scope of their employment pursuant to this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Confidential Information shall not include information which (i) has entered the public domain by no action of the receiving party hereunder, (ii) was already rightfully in the possession of the receiving party when received by the disclosing party, (iii) is received from a third party without breach of any obligation owed to the disclosing party or (iv) was developed independently by the receiving party by individuals without access to the disclosing party’s information.

If the receiving party is compelled by law to disclose the disclosing party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the disclosing party is a party, and the disclosing party is not contesting the disclosure, the disclosing party will reimburse the receiving party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to such Confidential Information.
(d) The obligations of the parties, with regard to the Confidential Information of the other that constitutes trade secrets, shall remain in effect for as long as such Confidential Information shall remain a trade secret under applicable law. All other Confidential Information shall remain protected during the Term and for three (3) years thereafter.
(e) Demandbase and Customer acknowledge that the damages for unauthorized and/or improper disclosure of the Confidential Information of the other party may be irreparable; therefore, the parties may seek equitable relief, including injunction and preliminary injunction for such alleged breaches.
Each party (in this case, the “Indemnifying Party”) shall defend each other (in this case, the “Indemnified Party”) and the Indemnified Party’s officers, agents, and employees against any third-party claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought by a third party, arising out of or caused by the breach or alleged breach by the Indemnifying Party of any of its representations or warranties contained herein (a “Claim”). The Indemnifying Party shall indemnify the Indemnified Party for any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded as a result of, or any amounts paid under a court-approved settlement of, a Claim against such party; provided that the Indemnified Party (a) promptly gives the Indemnifying Party written notice of the Claim; (b) gives the Indemnifying Party sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim (provided the Indemnifying Party may not settle or defend any Claim against the Indemnified Party unless it unconditionally releases the Indemnified Party of all liability); and (c) provides to the Indemnifying Party all reasonable assistance, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense.
Notwithstanding the provisions of this Section, Demandbase will have no liability to the extent that any such Claim would have been avoided but for (i) modification of the Services or any deliverable after delivery by Demandbase, (ii) Customer’s failure to use updated or modified Services or deliverables provided at no cost as a replacement for the original Services by Demandbase to avoid such a claim, or (iii) any use of the Services or deliverables not in accordance with the Order Form and Master Subscription Agreement.
In the event that any Service or deliverable is, or is likely to be, infringing, Demandbase, at its option and expense, may either (i) modify the Service(s) or deliverables so that they become non-infringing, (ii) replace the Services or deliverables with functionally equivalent non-infringing services reasonably acceptable to the Customer, (iii) procure for Customer the right to continue use, or, if the foregoing alternatives are not reasonably available to the Company, (iv) terminate the relevant Order Form and refund the Fees paid for the affected Services or affected deliverables under such Order Form.
This “Indemnification” section states the Indemnifying Party’s sole liability to, and the Indemnified Party’s exclusive remedy against, the other party for any type of claim described in this section.
