8.1 ZeroNines Indemnity. ZeroNines shall defend and pay all damages, costs and attorneys’ fees finally awarded against Licensee in connection with any third party claim or suit brought against Licensee to the extent that such claim or suit is based on a claim that Licensee’s authorized use of the Licensed Software in accordance with the terms of this Agreement infringes a United States patent issued as of the Effective Date, or a United States copyright, trademark or trade secret; provided that, Licensee notifies ZeroNines in writing of any such claim or suit promptly after Licensee first learns of it, and cooperates fully with ZeroNines, at ZeroNines’ expense, in connection with the defense thereof. ZeroNines shall have sole control of any such suit (including, without limitation, the right to settle on behalf of Licensee). If, as a result of any such claim, Licensee is enjoined from using the Licensed Software, or if ZeroNines believes that Licensee is likely to become the subject of such a claim, ZeroNines, at its option and expense, may (i) procure the right for Licensee to continue to use such software, (ii) replace or modify such software so as to make it non-infringing or (iii) in the event that, in ZeroNines’ sole discretion, (i) or (ii) are not commercially practicable, terminate this Agreement and refund to Licensee any payments of License Fees for the Licensed Software prorated based on a 10-year amortization period. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section 8.0, ZeroNines will have no liability for any infringement claim of any kind to the extent it is based on (a) a modification of the Licensed Software other than those provided to Licensee by ZeroNines; (b) the use of the Licensed Software in combination with any product not intended by ZeroNines to be combined with such Deliverable; or (c) the use of the Licensed Software not in accordance with the Documentation. The foregoing states ZeroNines’ sole obligation, and Licensee’s sole remedy for any claim of infringement.
8.2 Licensee Indemnity.

The person executing this click-wrap Agreement represents and warrants that he or she is an employee or agent of Licensee and has the full right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement on behalf of Licensee, that this Agreement has been duly authorized by Licensee, and that this Agreement will constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of Licensee, enforceable against Licensee in accordance with its terms. Licensee hereby agrees to indemnify and hold ZeroNines harmless from any and all claims, damages, losses and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees) arising from any breach of this representation and warranty. LICENSEE AGREES TO HOLD HARMLESS, DEFEND AND INDEMNIFY ZERONINES AGAINST ANY DAMAGES LICENSEE MAY SUFFER, OR ANY CLAIM BROUGHT BY A THIRD-PARTY, AS A RESULT OF LICENSEE’S USE OF THE SOFTWARE, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO A CLAIM THAT LICENSEE’S USE VIOLATES ANY APPLICABLE FEDERAL, STATE OR LOCAL LAW, RULE, REGULATION OR ORDER.
9.0 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
REGARDLESS OF WHETHER ANY REMEDY SET FORTH HEREIN FAILS OF ITS ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, IN NO EVENT WILL ZERONINES OR ITS LICENSORS BE LIABLE TO LICENSEE FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT OR SIMILAR DAMAGES UNDER OR IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING ANY LOST PROFITS OR LOST DATA ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, EVEN IF ZERONINES HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. ZERONINES DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE LICENSED SOFTWARE WILL RUN UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, NOR THAT CERTAIN RESULTS MAY BE OBTAINED BY LICENSEE IN CONNECTION THEREWITH. ANY BUSINESS DECISION MADE BY LICENSEE BASED UPON THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, OR ANY DATA OR INFORMATION GENERATED FROM SYSTEMS IMPLEMENTING THE LICENSED SOFTWARE, SHALL BE THE SOLE DECISION OF THE LICENSEE, AND ZERONINES WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE IN ANY WAY FOR SUCH DECISION, THE IMPACTS OF SUCH DECISION, OR THE FINANCIAL IMPACTS THEREOF.
