13.13 Indemnification by Company. Company shall indemnify, defend, and hold Client, its officers, shareholders, directors, employees, agents and affiliates (each, a “Subscriber Indemnified Party”) harmless from and against any and all costs, liabilities, losses and expenses, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees resulting from or arising out of any Claim brought by a third party against any Subscriber Indemnified Party relating to infringement of any United States patent or copyright by Subscriber’s use of the Platform; provided that, such cost, liability, loss, or expense was not caused, in whole or in part, by an unauthorized change, modification or adaptation of the Platform by Subscriber. Company may, at its option: (i) secure at its own expense a right for Subscriber to continue to use the Platform; (ii) may replace the Platform with software of comparable type, quality and specifications that does not infringe a third party’s rights; or (iii) immediately terminate this Agreement upon the return to Subscriber of all pre-paid Fees. Company’s obligation to indemnify is conditioned upon Client giving Company prompt notice of any such charge of infringement, allowing Company to control the defense and any settlement negotiations, and cooperating fully in resolving or defending such charges.
