8.1. Indemnification by Customer. Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold Swell and its successors and assigns harmless from and against any Liability arising from: (a) a claim alleging that the Customer Content or Customer Branding, or any portions thereof, infringe or misappropriate, derogate or violate a third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, rights to publicity or privacy, or other rights, or that any Customer Content is defamatory or obscene; and (b) arising from Customer’s breach of its obligations under Sections 3.11 and 3.12.

If a Third Party IP Infringement Claim occurs, or in Swell’s opinion is reasonably likely to occur, Swell may, at its expense and at its sole discretion, in addition to its indemnification obligations under this Section 8.2: (i) procure the right to allow Customer to continue to use the Services (or infringing portions thereof), or (ii) modify or replace the Services (or infringing portions thereof) to become non-infringing without degrading the functionality thereof, or (iii) if none of the two (2) foregoing options is commercially reasonable, terminate Customer’s right to use the affected portion of the Services and refund, on a pro-rata basis, any unused portion of the fees paid by Customer for the affected portion of the Services. Notwithstanding anything else in this Section, Swell shall have no obligations under this Section 8.2 to the extent the Third Party IP Infringement Claim arises out of or relates to: (x) any combination or use of the Services or components thereof with other products, content, software or services not provided by Swell under this Agreement, (y) Customer Branding, Customer Content, or (z) any unauthorized use of the Services. The remedies set forth in this Section constitute Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies, and Swell’s entire liability, with respect to infringement or violation of third party Intellectual Property Rights
8.3. Indemnification Procedures. In seeking indemnification for third party claims under this Section 8, the indemnified party: (a) will provide the indemnifying party with prompt written notice of any claim for which indemnification is sought, provided, however, that the failure to give timely notice will not relieve the indemnifying party of its obligations under this Section except to the extent that such untimely notice impairs the ability of the indemnifying party to defend or settle the claim; (b) cooperate with the indemnifying party (at the indemnifying party’s expense) and provide reasonable assistance and information; and (c) permit the indemnifying party to control and direct the defense or settlement of any such claim, provided that the indemnifying party will not settle any claim which settlement terms requires the indemnified party to admit liability without the indemnified party’s prior written consent.
