Ngagge’s failure to provide a Claim Notice to Customer under this Section 8.1.2 does not relieve Customer of any liability that Customer may have to Ngagge, but in no event shall Customer be liable for any Losses that result directly from a delay in providing a Claim Notice, which delay materially prejudices the defense of the related third-party claim. Each Claim Notice must contain a description of the third-party claim and the nature and amount of the related Losses (to the extent that the nature and amount of the Losses are known at the time). Ngagge shall furnish promptly to Customer copies of all papers and official documents received in respect of any Losses. Customer’s duty to defend applies immediately, regardless of whether Ngagge has paid any sums or incurred any detriment arising out of or relating, directly or indirectly, to any third-party claim.
8.1.3 Customer Control of Defense. Customer may assume control of the defense, appeal, or settlement of any third-party claim that is reasonably likely to give rise to an indemnification claim under Section 8.1 (an “Indemnified Claim”) by sending written notice of the assumption to Ngagge on or before seven (7) business days after receipt of a Claim Notice to acknowledge responsibility for the defense of such Indemnified Claim and undertake, conduct, and control, through reputable independent counsel of its own choosing (which Ngagge shall find reasonably satisfactory) and at Customer’s sole cost and expense, the settlement or defense thereof.
8.1.4 Ngagge’s Obligations Regarding Customer’s Control of Defense. If Customer assumes control of the defense under Section 8.1.3, Ngagge shall fully cooperate with Customer in connection therewith; and may employ, at any time, separate counsel to represent it, provided that Ngagge is solely responsible for the costs and expenses of any such separate counsel.
8.1.5 Ngagge’s Control of Defense. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in Section 8.1, upon giving written notice to Customer, Ngagge may take control of its defense to an Indemnified Claim with counsel of its choosing if:
220.127.116.11 the Indemnified Claim is one for which Ngagge properly gave Customer a Claim Notice under Section 8.1.2, and Customer fails to timely assume the defense or refuses to defend the Indemnified Claim under Section 8.1.3;
18.104.22.168 the Indemnified Claim seeks an injunction or other equitable relief against Ngagge that has a reasonable potential of impacting, directly or indirectly, customers of Ngagge other than Customer; or
22.214.171.124 Ngagge reasonably determines that there are one or more legal or equitable defenses available to it that are different from or in addition to those available to Customer and that counsel for Customer may not fully or adequately represent the interests of Ngagge.
8.1.6 Customer’s Obligations Regarding Ngagge’s Control of Defense. If Ngagge assumes control of the defense under Section 8.1.5, Customer shall reimburse Ngagge promptly and periodically for the costs properly incurred in defending against the Indemnified Claim (including its attorneys’ fees and expenses) and remain responsible to Ngagge for any Losses indemnified under Section 8.1.
8.1.7 Settlement of Indemnified Claims by Customer. Customer shall give prompt written notice to Ngagge of any proposed settlement of an Indemnified Claim. Customer may not, without Ngagge’s prior written consent, settle or compromise any indemnification-related claim or consent to the entry of any indemnification-related judgment unless such settlement, compromise, or consent:
126.96.36.199 includes an unconditional release of Ngagge from all liability arising out of such claim
188.8.131.52 does not contain any admission or statement suggesting any wrongdoing or liability on behalf of Ngagge; and
184.108.40.206 does not contain any equitable order, judgment, or term (other than the fact of payment or the amount of such payment) that in any manner affects, restrains, or interferes with the business of Ngagge.
8.1.8 Settlement of Indemnified Claims by Ngagge. Ngagge may not settle or compromise any claim or consent to the entry of any judgment regarding which it is seeking indemnification hereunder without the prior written consent of Customer, which Customer shall not unreasonably withhold, condition, or delay, unless
220.127.116.11 the Indemnified Claim is one for which Ngagge properly gave Customer a Claim Notice under Section 8.1.2, and Customer failed to assume the defense or refused to defend the Indemnified Claim under Section 8.1.3; or
18.104.22.168 such settlement, compromise or consent:
22.214.171.124.1 includes an unconditional release of Customer from all liability arising out of such claim;
126.96.36.199.2 does not contain any admission or statement suggesting any wrongdoing or liability on behalf of Customer; and
188.8.131.52.3 does not contain any equitable order, judgment, or term (other than the fact of payment or the amount of such payment) that in any manner affects, restrains, or interferes with the business of Customer.
8.2 Allocation of Liability. In the event a final judgment or award is entered against both Customer and Ngagge and such judgment or award includes a finding that Ngagge is liable in whole or in part for any enhanced, exemplary, or punitive damages because of reckless, wanton, or willful misconduct, then the parties’ respective liability shall be as follows:
8.2.1 In the event that only Ngagge is found to have engaged in conduct that is determined to be reckless, wanton, or willful, Customer shall have no obligation to indemnify Ngagge for any such judgments or awards.
8.2.2 In the event that both Ngagge and Customer are found to have engaged in conduct that is determined to be reckless, wanton, or willful, Ngagge’s sole obligation shall be to contribute to the payment of any enhanced, exemplary, or punitive damages in an amount proportional to its fault. Customer’s duty under Section 8.1 to defend and indemnify Ngagge for all liability that would have resulted from acts deemed to be negligent shall not be affected by this Section 8.2.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
9.1 Disclaimer. NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY CONTAINED IN THIS AGREEMENT, NGAGGE WILL NOT HAVE ANY LIABILITY TOWARDS CUSTOMER FOR ANY DAMAGES ARISING FROM CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE NGAGGE SOFTWARE AND/OR SERVICES THAT NGAGGE PROVIDES TO CUSTOMER, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PROVIDING AND/OR HOSTING THE END USER TERMS, WHETHER THE CAUSE OF ACTION BE BASED ON TORT, BREACH OF CONTRACT, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PUNITIVE, ACTUAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY NATURE OR DUE TO ANY CAUSE OF ANY NATURE. BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES TO HOLD NGAGGE HARMLESS FROM ANY LOSS OR HARM OF ANY NATURE DUE TO CUSTOMER’S USAGE OF THE NGAGGE SOFTWARE AND/OR SERVICES THAT NGAGGE PROVIDES TO CUSTOMER, WHETHER DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY. THE FOREGOING DISCLAIMER SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW. NGAGGE’S TOTAL LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL NOT EXCEED THE TOTAL FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER TO NGAGGE IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEEDING THE CLAIM OR ACTION GIVING RISE TO THE LIABILITY.
10.1 Customer shall, at its own cost and expense, procure and maintain in full force and effect during the Term of this Agreement, policies of insurance, of the types and in the minimum amounts reasonably necessary and appropriate in its industry to perform its obligations under this Agreement, with a responsible insurance carrier duly qualified in those states (locations) where the Ngagge Software and its Services are to be performed or used. Unless Ngagge otherwise agrees in writing, a complying policy will include a coverage rider expressly providing for coverage of TCPA claims and will include a “most favored jurisdiction” provision. Upon Ngagge’s request, Customer will provide its certificate of insurance.
11. DISPUTE RESOLUTION
11.1 General. In the interest of resolving disputes between Customer and Ngagge in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, Customer and Ngagge agree that any dispute arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, may allow for more limited discovery than in court, and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory, and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of this Agreement. CUSTOMER UNDERSTANDS AND AGREES THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, CUSTOMER AND NGAGGE ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION AND THAT THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE SUBJECT TO AND GOVERNED BY THE FEDERAL ARBITRATION ACT.
11.2 Exceptions. Notwithstanding Section 11.1, nothing in this Agreement will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in aid of arbitration from a court of competent jurisdiction; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.
11.3 Arbitrator. Any arbitration between Customer and Ngagge will be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act and the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Ngagge. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.
11.4 Notice. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by U.S. Mail (“Notice”). Ngagge’s address for Notice is set forth in Section 12.4. The Notice must: (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, Customer or Ngagge may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Customer or Ngagge must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in Customer’s favor with a monetary award that exceeds the last written settlement amount offered by Ngagge prior to selection of an arbitrator, Ngagge will pay Customer the highest of the following: (A) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (B) the last written settlement amount offered by Ngagge in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (C) $15,000.
11.5 Fees. If Customer commence arbitration in accordance with this Agreement, Ngagge will reimburse Customer for Customer’s payment of the filing fee, unless Customer’s claim is for more than $15,000 or as set forth below, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in New York, New York, but if the claim is for $15,000 or less, Customer may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of Customer’s billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of Customer’s claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, Customer agree to reimburse Ngagge for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise Customer’s obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. Each party agrees that such written decision, and information exchanged during arbitration, will be kept confidential except to the extent necessary to enforce or permit limited judicial review of the award. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits. Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, and for the avoidance of doubt, the arbitrator can award injunctive relief as a remedy in any arbitration required under this Section 11.
11.6 No Class Actions. CUSTOMER AND NGAGGE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN CUSTOMER’S OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both Customer and Ngagge agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
11.7. Modifications. Except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, if Ngagge makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Ngagge’s address for Notice, Customer may reject the change by sending us written notice within thirty (30) days of the change to Ngagge’s address for Notice, in which case this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes Customer rejected, will continue to govern any disputes between Customer and Ngagge.
11.8. Enforceability. If Section 11.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 11 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 11 will be null and void.
11.9 Third Party Disputes. Any dispute Customer has with any third party in connection with its use of the Services is solely between Customer and such third party. ACCORDINGLY, TO THE FULLEST EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, CUSTOMER HEREBY IRREVOCABLY RELEASES NGAGGE AND ITS AFFILIATES FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, AND DAMAGES (ACTUAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL) OF EVERY KIND AND NATURE, KNOWN AND UNKNOWN, ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY CONNECTED WITH SUCH DISPUTES.
12.1 Force Majeure. Ngagge shall not be liable in damages for any delay or default that is caused by conditions beyond its control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, earthquakes, fire, flood, epidemics, labor disputes, changes in law, regulations or government policy, government restrictions (including the denial or cancellation of any export or other necessary license), riots, wars, insurrections, and/or any other cause beyond the reasonable control of the party whose performance is affected (including transportation difficulties, acts or omissions of vendors or suppliers, or mechanical, electronic, internet service provider, or communications failure). Ngagge and Authorized Resellers are not responsible for server downtimes under any circumstances. If the force majeure continues for more than thirty (30) calendar days, either party may terminate this Agreement for convenience upon written notice to the other party.
12.2 Assignment. Customer may not assign or transfer its rights or delegate any obligations pursuant to this Agreement without the express prior written consent of Ngagge. Any assignment or transfer by Customer without the prior written consent of Ngagge shall be null and void. Ngagge may assign or transfer its rights or obligations pursuant to this Agreement without providing notice to Customer and without Customer’s prior consent, provided, however, that the Services shall continue to operate as specified in this Agreement. This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns.
12.3 Independent Contractor. Neither Customer nor Ngagge shall be deemed to be an agent of the other and the relationship of Customer and Ngagge shall be that of independent contractors. Neither Customer nor Ngagge shall have any right or authority to assume any obligations, or to make any representations or warranties, whether express or implied, on behalf of the other party, or to bind the other party in any matter whatsoever.
12.4 Notices. Any notice or report required or permitted to be given or made under this Agreement by either party will be in English, in writing, and be deemed to have been fully given and received (a) when delivered personally; (b) when sent by confirmed facsimile; (c) five (5) business days after having been sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid; (d) one (1) business day after deposit with a commercial overnight carrier, with written verification of such receipt; or (e) to the extent expressly permitted in this Agreement, one (1) business day after being sent via email. Notices will be sent to the parties at the addresses set forth in this Agreement or such other address as a party may specify in writing to the other. All notices to Ngagge must be made to the address listed below and all notices to Customer must be made to the mailing or email address of Customer’s primary contact with Ngagge.

Ngagge may broadcast notices or messages through the Ngagge Software or by posting notices or messages on the Ngagge Website to inform Customer of changes to the Ngagge Software and/or its Services or other matters of importance; Ngagge may also inform Customer of such broadcast by e-mail or surface mail.
12.5 Support. For Customer support, please email care@Ngagge.com. In providing support, Ngagge or a Ngagge agent may use a variety of tools to aid in the process of resolving Customer issues and may request that Customer provide additional information in order to resolve these issues. Customer hereby grants Ngagge and such agent the right to use those tools and any information Customer provides to Ngagge in order to provide Customer with support.
12.6 Waiver. The waiver by either party of any breach of any provision of this Agreement does not waive any other breach. The failure of any party to insist on strict performance of any covenant or obligation in accordance with this Agreement will not be a waiver of such party’s right to demand strict compliance in the future, nor will the same be construed as a novation of this Agreement.
12.9 Severability. Should any term and condition hereof be declared illegal or otherwise unenforceable, it shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement without affecting the legality or enforceability of the remaining portions.
12.10 Survival. Section 1 (Definitions), Section 3 (Subscription, Subscription Term, Subscription Fees, and Payment), Section 4 (Proprietary Rights), Section 5 (Confidentiality), Section 8 (Indemnification), Section 9 (Limitation of Liability), Section 11 (Dispute Resolution), and Section 12 (General) shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.
