NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, FUNCTIONIZE’S LIABILITY FOR INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 9 OF THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED, IN THE AGGREGATE, TWO TIMES (2X) THE AMOUNTS THAT ARE PAID OR PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER TO FUNCTIONIZE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO FIRST OCCURRENCE OF THE EVENTS GIVING RISE TO THE INDEMNIFICATION CLAIM. These exclusions are meant to apply to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law and regardless of the failure of any specific remedy.
  16.  
  17. INDEMNIFICATION.
    1. By Functionize. Functionize will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer, and its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, and Authorized Users from any third party claim or suit against Customer based on a claim that the technology used to provide the Functionize Solution infringes any United States patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret and Functionize shall pay any final judgment entered against such Indemnitees in any such proceeding or agreed to in settlement. If Customer’s use of the Functionize Solution is, or is likely, in Functionize’s reasonable determination, to be enjoined, Functionize may, without limiting its indemnity obligations hereunder, procure the right for Customer to continue to use the Functionize Solution or modify the Functionize Solution in a manner that has materially equivalent functionality so as to avoid such injunction. If the foregoing options are not available on commercially reasonable terms and conditions, Functionize may terminate the Agreement upon written notice and refund to Customer on a pro-rata basis all pre-paid Fees attributable to unused portion of the subscription term for the applicable Order. Functionize will not be responsible for any infringement claims to the extent they are based upon (i) the use of Customer Data, Third Party Applications or any other material of software not furnished by Functionize; (ii) Customer’s use of the Functionize Solution outside the scope of the applicable Documentation or this Agreement; or (iii) any action or omission of Customer for which Customer is obligated to indemnify Functionize under Section 9.B below. THIS SECTION 9.A STATES FUNCTIONIZE’S ENTIRE LIABILITY AND CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY FOR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT AND MISAPPROPRIATION CLAIMS BASED ON THE FUNCTIONIZE SOLUTION.
    2. By Customer. Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Functionize and its respective subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, licensors and suppliers from any third party claim or suit against Functionize based on a claim: (i) arising out of Customer’s use the Functionize Solution for any unlawful purpose or in a manner in breach of Section 2 of this Agreement or which violates or infringes any laws, rules, regulations, third party intellectual property or privacy rights; or (ii) alleging that the access, use or provision of any Customer Data as permitted violates any applicable law, regulation or the proprietary rights of others when used by Functionize as permitted hereunder.
    3. Indemnification Procedure. The party seeking indemnity (“Indemnified Party“) will give the party from whom indemnity is sought (“Indemnifying Party“) timely written notice of the claim for which indemnity is sought and control of the disposition thereof; provided, that failure to give timely notice will not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations except to the extent that such untimely notice materially impairs the Indemnifying Party’s ability to defend such claim. The Indemnified Party will cooperate with the Indemnifying Party’s reasonable requests (at the Indemnifying Party’s expense) in connection with the defense and settlement of such claim. Neither party will settle any claim for which indemnity is sought unless: (i) such settlement includes an unconditional release of the other party from all liability on the claim, or (ii) the other party gives its prior written consent, not to be unreasonably withheld.
  18.  
  19. GENERAL. This Agreement is not assignable or transferable, in whole or in part, by either party without the other party’s prior written consent; provided, however, either party may assign the Agreement to any of its corporate affiliates or to a successor as a result of merger, consolidation, acquisition or sale of all or substantially all of such party’s assets so long as the assignee agrees in writing to assume all obligations and liabilities of the assigning party hereunder. Functionize reserves the right to modify these Terms of Service at any time and in its sole discretion by posting revised Terms of Service at https://www.functionize.com/terms and notifying Customer of such modification via email or through presentation of the new Terms of Service upon Customer’s next login to the Functionize Solution. Any such changes shall become effective upon provision of such notice, unless Customer objects in writing to such changes within thirty (30) days of such notification. In the event of such objection, Customer may continue using the Functionize Solution under these Terms of Service for the remainder of Customer’s then-current subscription term and the updated Terms of Service will apply upon Customer’s renewal or placement of a new Order. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any changes to the Terms of Service made to ensure compliance with applicable law shall go into effect immediately. All notices permitted or required under this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be delivered by personal delivery, by certified or registered mail, return receipt requested or by electronic email transmission, and shall be deemed given upon personal delivery, five (5) calendar days after deposit in the mail, or upon acknowledgment of receipt of electronic transmission. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California, U.S.A. without regard to conflict of laws principles. The exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any claims arising out of or related to this Agreement or Customer’s use of the Functionize Solution is in the state and federal courts located in the City and County of San Francisco, California, and Customer irrevocably agrees to submit to the jurisdiction of such courts. If any provision hereof shall be held illegal, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision shall be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it legal, valid and enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby. The failure of either party to enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. Nothing contained herein shall be construed as creating an agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties. In the event any judicial proceeding, lawsuit or claim is brought by one party against the other party in connection with this Agreement, the prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable fees and costs, including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, expert witness fees, consultant fees, and related costs and expenses. This Agreement, together with any Orders, constitutes the parties’ entire understanding regarding the Functionize Solution, and supersedes any and all other prior or contemporaneous agreements, whether written or oral, and the preprinted terms of any purchase order or similar document shall be void and of no force or effect.
