Client will reimburse Company for any reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred by Company if the cause of the infringement is attributable to Client’s actions as stated in this paragraph.

With respect to claims for indemnification pursuant to Section 11.1 (Indemnification) above, Client must (a) promptly notify Company of the claim (provided that any failure to provide prompt written notice will only relieve the Company of its obligations to the extent its ability to defend the claim is materially prejudiced by the failure), (b) give Company sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim (provided that Company shall not consent to entry of any judgment or admission of any liability of Client without the prior written approval of Client), and (c) provide reasonable assistance, cooperation, and required information with respect to the defense and settlement of the claim, at Company’s expense. At its own expense, Client may retain separate counsel to advise it regarding the defense or settlement of the claim.
No breach of any provision of this Agreement shall be waived except with the express written consent of the party not in breach.
