or assembled; (ii) confidential and trade secret information; and
(iii) information that has been created, developed and maintained

or omission by its agents, employees or any third party that

Service and Information and other Confidential Information at
least equal to that which the other Party uses to protect its own

care. Customer will not use the tradenames, trademarks, service
marks or copyrighted materials of Avention and/or its
Information Providers in any manner without the prior written
approval of Avention. Customer shall reproduce Avention’s
and/or its Information Provider’s copyright notice and

Customer, Avention will defend, hold harmless, and indemnify
Customer against all liabilities, costs, and expenses (including

which Avention is entitled to indemnification

copyright, or trade secret, subject to the following conditions:
(i) Customer promptly notifies Avention in writing of any
notice of such claim; and

defense and all negotiations for any settlement or compromise,
provided that Customer shall be entitled to participate in its own
defense at Customer’s expense; and

to become, the subject of any such claim, Avention may, at
Avention’s option and expense, (a) procure for Customer the
right to continue using Service, (b) modify Service so that it
becomes non-infringing, (c) remove the affected portion(s) of
Services and reduce the Total Charges on a pro rata basis to
reflect such removal, or (d) refund or credit Customer the
pro-rata portion of Total Charges paid representing the unused
portion of the subscription and terminate the applicable Order

9.2 Avention’s indemnification obligation and liability shall
not apply to the extent the infringement arises out of: (1) any
Service or Information that has been altered, modified, or
revised by any person other than Avention; or (2) the
combination, operation, or use of the Service or Information
with products not furnished by Avention; or (3) Customer’s
continuation of the allegedly infringing activity after being
notified to cease such activity. This Section 9 states Avention’s
sole liability to Customer, and Customer’s exclusive remedy
against Avention, for any type of claim described in this
Section 9.

does not appear possible.
