To the extent that there is an inconsistency between these Terms and any Approved Order, the Approved Order shall control with respect to the specific Equipment, Subscription Monitoring Services and Software and prices listed in that Approved Order. These Terms, together with the applicable Approved Order, supersede any prior agreements (including without limitation any nondisclosure agreements), proposals or other communications, oral or written, between the parties with respect to the Products and Services specified in that Approved Order. These Terms, together with the applicable Approved Order, supersede all documents, including any purchase orders issued by Customer with respect to equipment, software and services to be provided by WA and any additional or different terms or conditions included on any such documentation are hereby expressly rejected by WellAware. All references to “days” shall refer to calendar days unless “business days” is expressly referenced, in which case “business days” shall be defined as any day Monday through Friday other than days observed by WellAware as holidays.

10.1 WellAware Indemnification. WellAware shall defend Customer against any claims, demands, suits, or proceedings made or brought against Customer by a third party (a “Claim”) alleging that any Products or Services provided by WellAware in the its original form, without modification, and used by Customer in accordance with applicable usage instructions from WellAware, infringes or misappropriates any intellectual property rights of a third party enforceable in the United States. Upon notice of a claim of intellectual property infringement or if, in WellAware’s opinion, a claim of intellectual property infringement is likely, WellAware shall have the right, at its sole option and expense, to: (a) procure for Customer the right to continue using the affected Products and Services under the terms of this Agreement; (b) replace or modify the affected Products or Services claimed to be non-infringing without material decrease in functionality; or (c) if the foregoing options are not commercially reasonable, terminate this Agreement and if applicable, refund Customer all prepaid fees for the remainder of its Subscription Monitoring Services term after the date of termination.

10.3 Indemnification Procedure. The indemnified party will (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any Claim for which indemnity is claimed, provided that failure to so notify will not remove the indemnifying party’s obligation except to the extent it is prejudiced thereby, (ii) allow the indemnifying party to solely control the defense of any Claim and all negotiations for settlement (provided that in no event may either party enter into any third-party agreements which would in any manner whatsoever affect the rights of, or bind the other party in any manner to such third party, without the prior written consent of the other party) and (iii) provide reasonable cooperation to the indemnifying party, at the indemnifying party’s sole expense, in defending the Claim.
