Notwithstanding the foregoing if Scanmarket reasonably believes that Your use of any portion of the Service is likely to be enjoined by reason of any Claims then Scanmarket may, at its expense and in its sole discretion: (i) procure for You the right to continue using the Service; (ii) replace the same with other services of equivalent functions and efficiency that is not subject to any Claims of infringement; or (iii) modify the applicable Service so that there is no longer any infringement, provided that such modification does not adversely affect the functional capabilities of the Service as set out herein or the applicable Order Form.

The foregoing indemnification obligation of Scanmarket shall not apply: (1) if the Service is modified by any party other than Scanmarket, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such modification; (2) the Scanmarket Services are combined with other non-Scanmarket products, applications, or processes not authorized by Scanmarket, but solely to the extent the alleged infringement is caused by such combination; (3) to any unauthorized use of the Scanmarket Services; (4) to any action arising as a result of the Customer Data.

You shall defend, indemnify and hold Scanmarket, its officers, agents, employees, and affiliates harmless against any expense, liability, loss, damage or costs (including reasonable attorneys' fees), each to the extent payable to a third party, incurred in connection with claims made or brought against Scanmarket by a third party or public authorities arising from or relating to: (i) Your use of the Customer Data, (ii) Your use of the Services in violation of this Agreement, (iii) Your User-initiated events, including claims for damages irrespective of the grounds for the claim for damages, also as a result of concluded or possibly not concluded agreements.
Each party's indemnity obligations are subject to the following: (i) the indemnified party shall promptly notify the indemnifier in writing of any Claims; (ii) the indemnifier shall have sole control of the defense and all related settlement negotiations with respect to any Claims (provided that the indemnifier may not settle any Claims that requires the indemnified party to admit any civil or criminal liability or incur any financial obligation without the indemnified party’s consent, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld); and (iii) the indemnified party shall cooperate fully to the extent necessary at the indemnifier’s cost in such defense and settlement.
