9.1 By Customer.
Customer will defend and indemnify Realize and its Affiliates against Indemnified Liabilities in any Third-Party Legal Proceeding to the extent arising from: (a) any Customer Data; (b) the combination of the Customer Data with other applications, content or processes; or (c) Customer's use of Govdash in violation of Section 2.1 (Restrictions).
9.2 By Realize.
Realize will defend and indemnify Customer and its Affiliates against Indemnified Liabilities in any Third-Party Legal Proceeding to the extent arising solely from an unaffiliated third-party allegation that use of Realize’s technology used to provide Govdash infringes or misappropriates the third party's Intellectual Property Rights.
This Section 10 (Indemnification) will not apply to the extent the underlying allegation arises from: (a) the indemnified party's breach of this Agreement; (b) modifications to Realize's technology or Brand Features by anyone other than Realize; (c) combination of Realize's technology with materials not provided by Realize; or (d) use of non-current or unsupported versions of Govdash or Brand Features.
9.4 Infringement Remedies.
In addition to Realize’s indemnity obligations, if Govdash becomes, or in Realize’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of an infringement claim, Realize may at its sole option and expense: (i) procure for Customer the right to make continued use of Govdash; (ii) replace or modify Govdash so that they become non-infringing; or (iii) terminate Govdash.
Sections 9.1 (By Customer) and 9.2 (By Realize) are conditioned on the following:
(a) The indemnified party must promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any allegation that preceded the Third-Party Legal Proceeding and cooperate reasonably with the indemnifying party to resolve the allegation and Third-Party Legal Proceeding. If breach of this Section 10.5(a) prejudices the defense of the Third-Party Legal Proceeding, the indemnifying party's obligations under Section 10.1 (By Customer) or 10.2 (By Realize) (as applicable) will be reduced in proportion to the prejudice.
(b) The indemnified party must tender sole control of the indemnified portion of the Third-Party Legal Proceeding to the indemnifying party, subject to the following: (i) the indemnified party may appoint its own non-controlling counsel, at its own expense; and (ii) any settlement requiring the indemnified party to admit liability, pay money, or take (or refrain from taking) any action, will require the indemnified party's prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed.
