      • Digital Storyteller’s material breach of any of its obligations under this Agreement;
      • Digital Storyteller’s gross negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct, or more culpable act or omission in performing its obligations under this Agreement;
      • The Services or Deliverables (except for components of deliverables that are comprised of Client materials or intellectual property) infringe the third-party’s United States intellectual property rights.

      • Client’s gross negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct, or more culpable act or omission in performing its obligations under this Agreement;

    • Exceptions and Limitations to Indemnification.
      • Mutual Exceptions and Limitations. Neither Party is obligated to indemnify, defend, or hold harmless the other Party against any Losses arising or resulting (in whole or in part) from the other Party’s negligent, willful, or reckless acts or omissions, or bad faith failure to materially comply with its obligations under this Agreement.
      • Digital Storyteller’s Exceptions and Limitations. Digital Storyteller is not obligated to indemnify, defend, or hold harmless Client against any Losses arising or resulting (in whole or in part) from infringement claims relating to:
        • Any Client materials or intellectual property;
        • Client’s use of the Deliverables in combination with any materials or intellectual property not supplied to Client, or specified in writing to Client, by Digital Storyteller, if the infringement would have been avoided if the materials and intellectual property weren’t combined; or
        • Any modifications or changes to the Deliverables that were made by any person or entity other than Digital Storyteller.
      • Client’s Exceptions and Limitations. Client is not obligated to indemnify, defend, or hold harmless Digital Storyteller against any Losses arising or resulting (in whole or in part) from infringement claims relating to:
        • Any Deliverables or other materials or intellectual property supplied to Client, or specified in writing to Client, by Digital Storyteller;

        • Any modifications or changes to Client’s materials or intellectual property that were made by any person or entity other than Client.
      • Indemnification Procedures. A Party seeking indemnification under this Section 10 (the “Indemnified Party”) must give the Party from whom indemnification is sought (the “Indemnifying Party”) prompt notice of the relevant claim and reasonable cooperation in defending it, but failing to provide prompt notice will only relieve the Indemnifying Party from its indemnification obligation to the extent of any material prejudice directly resulting from the failure. The Indemnifying Party will control the defense and settlement of any claim but must not settle or dispose of any claim without the prior written approval of the Indemnified Party if the settlement or disposal would affect the Indemnified Party’s rights or interest. The Indemnified Party may participate in the defense at its own expense.
      • Infringement Remedy. If the Deliverables or any component of them other than Client’s materials or intellectual property is found to be infringing, or if any use of the Deliverables or any component of them is enjoined, threatened to be enjoined, or otherwise the subject of an infringement claim, Digital Storyteller will, at its sole option and expense: (i) procure for Client the right to continue to use the Deliverables or component of them to the full extent contemplated by this Agreement; or (i) modify or replace the materials that infringe or are alleged to infringe (“Allegedly Infringing Materials”) to make the Deliverables and all of their components non-infringing while providing fully equivalent features and functionality. If neither of the foregoing is possible despite Digital Storyteller’s commercially reasonable efforts, then Digital Storyteller may direct Client to cease any use of any materials that were enjoined or finally adjudicated as infringing, but Digital Storyteller must refund all amounts paid by Client for the Allegedly Infringing Materials. The foregoing is in addition to, and not in lieu of, all other remedies that may be available to Client under this Agreement or otherwise.
      • Exclusive Remedy. Except for the equitable remedies set forth in Section 13.7 (Equitable Remedies), this Section 10 sets forth the entire liability and obligation of each indemnifying party and the sole and exclusive remedy of each indemnified party for any damages covered by this Section 10.
      • Limitation of Liability. Neither Party will be liable to the other Party or any third party for consequential, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, punitive or enhanced damages, lost profits or revenues, or diminution in value, arising out of, relating to, or in connection with any breach of this Agreement, regardless of whether the damages were foreseeable, whether or not the Party was advised of the possibility of the damages, or the legal or equitable theory on which the claim is based. In no event will either Party’s liability arising out of relating to this Agreement, whether arising out of or relating to breach of contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, exceed the aggregate amounts paid or payable to Digital Storyteller for the 12 month period preceding the event giving rise to the claim. The limitations in this Section 11 will not apply to a Party’s obligations under Sections 6 (Ownership of Deliverables; Intellectual Property Rights), 7 (Confidential Information), 9 (Warranties; Disclaimer of Warranties), 10 (Indemnification), or a Party’s gross negligence, recklessness, willful misconduct, or more culpable act or omission.

    • Miscellaneous.
    • Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the Parties is that of independent contractors. Nothing contained in this Agreement will be construed to create any agency, partnership, joint venture, or other form of joint enterprise, employment, or fiduciary relationship between the Parties, and neither Party will have authority to contract for or bind the other Party.
    • No Exclusivity. Digital Storyteller may perform the same or similar type of services for third parties in Client’s industry during the Term of this Agreement.
    • Force Majeure. Digital Storyteller will not be liable or responsible to Client, nor be considered to have defaulted or breached this Agreement, for any failure or delay in fulfilling or performing any term of this Agreement when and to the extent that failure or delay is caused by or results from acts or circumstances beyond Digital Storyteller’s reasonable control including, without limitation, acts of God, flood, fire, earthquake, explosion, governmental actions, war, invasion or hostilities (whether war is declared or not), terrorist threats or acts, riot, or other civil unrest, national emergency, revolution, insurrection, epidemic, lock-outs, strikes or other labor disputes (whether or not relating to either party’s workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials, or telecommunication breakdown or power outage. But if the event in question continues for a continuous period of more than 90 days, Client may terminate this Agreement on written notice to Digital Storyteller.
    • Assignment. Neither Party may assign, transfer, or delegate any or all of its rights or obligations under this Agreement, without the prior written consent of the other party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed, except either Party may assign this Agreement to an affiliate, a successor-in-interest by consolidation, merger, or operation of law, or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of the Party’s assets. No assignment will relieve the assigning party of any of its obligations under this Agreement. Any attempted assignment, transfer, or other conveyance in violation of the foregoing will be null and void. This Agreement will be binding on and inure to the benefit of the Parties and their respective successors and permitted assigns.
    • Governing Law; Jurisdiction. California law applies to this Agreement without regard for any choice-of-law rules that might direct the application of the laws of another jurisdiction.  Exclusive jurisdiction lies with the courts of California for all actions or proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement and the Parties hereby consent to the jurisdiction of those courts.
    • Cumulative Remedies. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, all rights and remedies are cumulative and not exclusive, and the exercise by either Party of any right or remedy does not preclude the exercise of any other rights or remedies that may now or subsequently be available at law, in equity, by statute, in any other agreement between the Parties or otherwise.
    • Equitable Remedies. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that if it breaches or threatens to breach any of its obligations under Sections 6 (Ownership of Deliverables; Intellectual Property Rights), 7 (Confidential Information), 9 (Warranties; Disclaimer of Warranties), or 10 (Indemnification) that breach or threatened breach would give rise to irreparable harm to the other Party for which monetary damages would not be an adequate remedy. If a Party breaches or threatens to breach any of these obligations, the other Party will, in addition to any and all other rights and remedies that may be available to that Party at law, at equity, or otherwise, be entitled to equitable relief, including a temporary restraining order, an injunction, specific performance and any other relief that may be available from a court of competent jurisdiction, without any requirement to post a bond or other security, and without any requirement to prove actual damages or that monetary damages will not afford an adequate remedy. Each Party agrees that it will not oppose or otherwise challenge the appropriateness of equitable relief or the entry by a court of competent jurisdiction of an order granting equitable relief, in either case, consistent with the terms of this Section 13.7.
    • Severability. If any part of this Agreement is held to be unenforceable, that part must be amended to achieve as nearly as possible the same economic effect as the original part and the rest of this Agreement remains fully enforceable.
    • Amendment and Modification. This Agreement may not be amended or modified unless the amendment or modification is in writing and signed by the Parties.
    • Waiver. A Party’s waiver of a provision or the other Party’s breach of this Agreement is not a waiver of any similar or dissimilar provision or breach at the same, prior, or subsequent time. A Party’s delay or failure to exercise any right, power, or privilege under this Agreement is not a waiver of that right, power, or privilege, and does not preclude the Party from any other or further exercise of that or any other right, power, or privilege.
    • Captions. The captions or headings of this Agreement are for reference only and should not be construed as part of this Agreement.
    • Notice. Any notice required or permitted by this Agreement must be in writing and will be considered effective on receipt if delivered in person, by a reputable overnight courier service, by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), or by email or confirmed facsimile (if the email or facsimile is sent during the recipient’s normal business hours, otherwise the email or facsimile is considered given or made on the next business day), to the attention of the Party intended as the recipient at that Party’s address on the signature page to this Agreement or at the address that party most recently provided to the other Party for the purpose of notice under this Section 13.12.
    • Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts. Each counterpart may be executed by fewer than all the Parties to this Agreement and considered an original.
