Should any portion of the BTT products or services become, or in BTT’s opinion be likely to become, the subject of any Infringement Claim, then Customer will permit BTT, at BTT’s option and expense, to procure for such party the right to continue using the product or service, to replace or modify the product or service or portion thereof to be non-infringing, or to take any other action reasonably deemed advisable by BTT related to such alleged infringement. In the event none of these remedies is available and/or practical, BTT may, in its sole discretion, terminate the right to use the product or service and return to Customer the fees paid with respect to the infringing product or service, reduced on a prorated basis for each month the product or service is used by Customer. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement, BTT shall have no obligation to indemnify or reimburse Customer with respect to any Infringement Claim to the extent arising from: (a) the combination of any customer content with the BTT product or service; or (b) the combination of any products or services, other than those provided by BTT to Customer under this Agreement, with the BTT products or services.

    2. Notice of Claim and Indemnity Procedure. In the event of a claim for which a party seeks indemnity or reimbursement under this Section 3 (each an “Indemnified Party”) and as a condition of the indemnity, the Indemnified Party shall: (a) notify the indemnifying party in writing as soon as practicable, but in no event later than thirty (30) days after receipt of such claim, together with such further information as is necessary for the indemnifying party to evaluate such claim to the extent that the Indemnified Party is in possession or has knowledge of such information; provided that any delay in giving such notice shall not preclude the Indemnified Party from seeking indemnification or reimbursement thereunder if: (i) such delay has not materially prejudiced the indemnifying party’s ability to defend the claim; and (ii) such delay does not materially affect the amount of any damages awarded for or paid in settlement of such claim; and (b) the Indemnified Party allows the indemnifying party to assume full control of the defense of the claim, including retaining counsel of its own choosing. Upon the assumption by the indemnifying party of the defense of a claim with counsel of its choosing, the indemnifying party will not be liable for the fees and expenses of additional counsel retained by any Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party shall cooperate with the indemnifying party in the defense of any such claim.

    3. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, the indemnifying party shall have no obligation to indemnify or reimburse for any losses, damages, costs, disbursements, expenses, settlement liability of a claim or other sums paid by any Indemnified Party voluntarily, and without the indemnifying party’s prior written consent, to settle a claim.
