(c)    Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party if it is compelled by Law to do so, provided that the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of such compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, to the extent possible, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure.

18.    INDEMNIFICATION

(a)    Mutual Indemnification. Each party (as an "Indemnifying Party") agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless (collectively occasionally referred to as "indemnify" or its cognates) at its expense the other party and its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, successors and assigns (and in the case of BetterBot, its Providers) (each an "Indemnified Party"), in accordance with the procedures described in this Section 18, from and against any and all losses, costs, damages, liabilities and expenses including without limitation, reasonable legal fees and expenses paid to or for the benefit of an unaffiliated third party (collectively, "Losses") arising from or in connection with any third-party claim for: (i) damage caused by the gross negligence or willful misconduct of the Indemnifying Party; or (ii) the damage, loss or destruction of any real or tangible personal property caused by the negligence or willful misconduct of the Indemnifying Party.

(b)    Indemnification for Infringement. BetterBot will indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Customer for Losses Customer incurs as a direct result of any unaffiliated third-party claim based on any claim that the Software or the Service infringes any valid U.S. intellectual property right, except to the extent resulting from (i) Customer’s modification of the Software or Service or combining by Customer the Software or Service with other products or services if the Software or Service would not have been infringing but for such combination or modification, (ii) Customer’s use of the Software or Service in a manner not authorized herein or for which it was not designed, (iii) Customer’s failure to install and use an updated non-infringing version of the Software to the extent Customer was notified that the update cured an infringement, (iv) changes to the Software or Service made by BetterBot at the direction of the Customer, or, (v) Customer Data. If any item for which BetterBot has an indemnification obligation under this Section 18(b) becomes, or in BetterBot’s reasonable opinion is likely to become, the subject of an infringement or misappropriation claim or proceeding, BetterBot will, in addition to indemnifying Customer as provided in this Section 18(b), at no additional charge to Customer, at BetterBot’s option: (a) secure the right to continue using the item or (b) replace or modify the item to make it non-infringing. If neither of such actions can be accomplished by BetterBot using commercially reasonable efforts, and only in such event, BetterBot will remove the item from the Software or Service and the applicable Fees will be equitably adjusted to reflect such removal. This Section 18(b) states Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for BetterBot’s infringement or misappropriation of intellectual property of a third party.

(c)    Customer’s Indemnification. Customer shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless BetterBot and its Providers against any and all Losses incurred by BetterBot and its Providers arising out of or in connection with a third-party claim (i) alleging that the Customer Data, or any use thereof, infringes the rights of, or has caused harm to, a third party, or (ii) arising out of Customer’s breach of this Agreement.

(d)    Indemnification Procedures. The Indemnified Party shall give prompt notice of the claim and will tender the defense; provided, however, that the Indemnified Party’s failure to provide notification shall not affect the Indemnifying Party’s indemnification obligations except to the extent that the failure to notify delays or prejudices the Indemnifying Party’s ability to defend the applicable claim. The Indemnifying Party shall conduct the defense and shall have control of the litigation, and the Indemnified Party shall cooperate in defending against the claim. The Indemnified Party shall have the right, at any time and at its own expense, to participate in the defense of the claim with counsel of its own choosing. The Indemnifying Party shall not make any settlement of the claim that results in any liability or imposes any obligation on the Indemnified Party without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, delayed, or conditioned. If the Indemnifying Party fails to (i) respond to the notice of a claim, or (ii) assume the defense of a claim, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to defend the claim in such manner as it may deem appropriate, at the reasonable cost, expense, and risk of the Indemnifying Party, and the Indemnifying Party shall promptly reimburse the Indemnified Party for all such costs and expenses.

(a)    A "Force Majeure Event" means a cause or event beyond the reasonable control of the party claiming delay of performance, including, but not limited to, (i) labor disputes, strikes, or lockouts (but excluding nonunion labor shortage or disputes), or labor unavailability or workplace closure or restrictions as required or recommended by government or agency due to pandemic, epidemic, or other widespread health emergency (e.g., viruses or other diseases, such as, but not limited to, COVID-19, SARS, or the like.); (ii) riots, war, acts of terrorism, or other civil disturbance; (iii) fire, flood, earthquake, tornado, hurricane, snow, ice, lightning, or other natural disasters, elements of nature or acts of God, (iv) outages, cable cuts, power crisis shortages, infrastructure outages or failures, internet failures, interruption or failure of telecommunications carriers or digital transmission links, network congestion, computer equipment failures, telecommunication equipment or other equipment failures, electrical power failures, loss of or fluctuations in heat, light, or air conditioning, all of the foregoing in this Subsection (iv) being of or due to third party providers or utility service providers; (v) acts of computer, system, or network sabotage or file lockup (e.g., ransomware attack), DDOS or other network attacks, intrusion, or other failures not arising out of a breach of Provider’s data security obligations set forth in this Agreement; (vi) any law, order, regulation, direction, action or request of the United States, state or local governmental agency, department, commission, court, bureau, corporation or other instrumentality of any one or more of such instrumentality, or of any civil or military authority, or national emergencies, including imposing an embargo, export or import restriction, quota or other restriction or prohibition or any complete or partial government shutdown; (vii) change in law or regulation making performance impracticable without having material impact on such party’s ability to perform under this Agreement without material increase in cost, resources, or time; or, (viii) national or regional shortage of adequate power or telecommunications or transportation.

(b)    With the exception of the timely payment of Fees owed, if by reason of a Force Majeure Event either party is unable to perform in whole or in part its obligations as set forth in this Agreement, then such party shall be relieved of those obligations to the extent it is so unable to perform and such inability to perform shall not make such party liable to the other party. A party shall promptly notify the other party in the event of a Force Majeure Event affecting the party’s ability to perform. Neither party shall be liable for any loss, injury, delays or damages suffered or incurred by the other party due to the above causes. In the event a Force Majeure Event occurs whereby either party is unable to perform in whole or in part its obligations as set forth in this Agreement (other than timely payment of Fees) for a period of thirty (30) consecutive days, the other party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement without termination liability, other than for Fees due up to the date of termination.

21.    DISPUTE RESOLUTION

(a)    Time Limitation. Any claim or action against us must be brought within twelve (12) months of the cause arising, otherwise such claim or action is permanently barred.

(b)    Arbitration.

(i)    Other than for the grounds set forth in Section 21(b)(iv) (labeled "Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate"), in the event of any dispute, claim, question or disagreement arising from or relating to this Agreement or the breach thereof, the parties hereto shall use reasonable efforts to settle the dispute, claim, question, or disagreement. To this effect, the parties shall consult and negotiate with each other in good faith and, recognizing their mutual interests, attempt to reach a just and equitable solution satisfactory to both parties. If the parties do not reach such solution within a period of thirty (30) days, then, upon notice by either party to the other, such dispute, claim, question or disagreement shall be resolved by binding arbitration in Atlanta, Georgia in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the "AAA"), subject to the limitations of this Section. This agreement to arbitrate will be specifically enforceable under the prevailing law of any court having jurisdiction. Notice of a demand for arbitration shall be filed in writing with the other party hereto and with the AAA. The demand for arbitration shall be made within a reasonable time after the dispute has arisen, and in no event shall any such demand be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such dispute would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations. The parties agree that one (1) arbitrator shall arbitrate the dispute. The arbitrator shall be selected by the joint agreement of the parties, but if they do not so agree within twenty (20) days after the date of the notice of a demand for arbitration referred to above, the selection shall be made pursuant to the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA from the panels of business arbitrators maintained by the AAA. The decision of the arbitrator shall be made in writing and shall be final. Judgment may be entered upon it in any court having jurisdiction thereof, and the decision shall not be subject to vacation, modification or appeal, except to the extent permitted by Sections 10 and 11 of the Federal Arbitration Act, the terms of which Sections the parties agree shall apply. The expenses of arbitration, including and the fees and expenses of the arbitrator and the AAA, shall be shared equally by the parties.

(ii)    The arbitrator will have no authority to award attorneys’ fees, punitive damages, or any other monetary relief not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages and each party irrevocably waives any claim thereto. The award may include equitable relief. The arbitrator will not make any ruling, finding, or award that does not otherwise conform to this Agreement. The arbitrator may render a summary disposition relative to all or some of the issues, provided that the responding party has had an adequate opportunity to respond to any such application for such disposition.

(iii)    The parties agree to treat all aspects of the arbitration as confidential, as provided in the AAA Rules. Before making any disclosure permitted by the Rules, a party shall give written notice to the other party and afford such party a reasonable opportunity to protect its interests. Further, judgment on the arbitrators’ award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.

(iv)    Exceptions to Agreement to Arbitrate. The parties agree that either party may bypass arbitration and go to court to resolve disputes relating to intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, trade dress, domain names, trade secrets, copyrights or patents) or relating to breach or potential breach of confidentiality.

(c)    Waiver of Jury Trial. Each party irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury for any legal action arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
