Recipient will restrict access to, and use of, Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to those employees and agents of Recipient’s organization with a need to use the information to perform under or otherwise fulfill the purpose of this Agreement.

The obligations set forth above will not apply to information which is: (a) already known to or otherwise in the possession of the Recipient at the time of disclosure and which was not so known or received in violation of any confidentiality obligation; (b) publicly available or otherwise in the public domain prior to disclosure by the Recipient; (c) rightfully obtained by the Recipient from any third party without restriction and without breach of any confidentiality obligation by such third party; or (d) developed by the Recipient without reference to the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and independent of any disclosure hereunder, as evidenced by written records. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each Party may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent necessary to comply with the order of a court or administrative body of competent jurisdiction or a government agency, provided that the Recipient will notify the Disclosing Party prior to such disclosure and will cooperate with the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party elects to legally contest, request confidential treatment of, or otherwise avoid such disclosure. If the parties have entered into a separate non-disclosure agreement, the terms of this Section 6 will be construed as supplemental to the terms of the separate agreement, and will not be construed to nullify the prior, separate agreement.

(b) Customer represents and warrants that Customer’s use of the software, products or services provided by Juice will comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations.
(c) Juice warrants that the Software Services will conform in all material respects to the Documentation.

Juice’s liability for any other damages asserted by Customer will be limited to Customer’s actual damages and will in no event exceed the amounts paid to Juice by Customer under this Agreement IN THE TWELVE (12) MONTH PERIOD PRECEDING the date of THE LAST claim by Customer. The disclaimers and exclusions contained herein are independent of any exclusive remedy and will apply notwithstanding the failure of such exclusive remedy. Some states do not allow the disclaimer or limitation of damages relating to personal injury, so the above disclaimer of, and limitation of liability
8.2 Essential Basis. The disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement form an essential basis of the bargain between the Parties, and, absent any of such disclaimers, exclusions or limitations of liability, the provisions of this Agreement, including, without limitation, the economic terms, would be substantially different.

(a) Juice will defend, indemnify, and hold Customer harmless against all costs and reasonable expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), damages, and liabilities arising out of any claim by a third party that the Software Services infringe or misappropriate any U.S. patent issued as of the Effective Date or any copyright or any trade secrets under U.S. law, provided that Customer gives Juice (i) prompt written notice of such claim; (ii) sole control over the defense and settlement of such claim; and (iii) proper and full information and assistance to settle and/or defend such claim. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Juice will have no obligation or liability to the extent that the alleged infringement arises from (1) the combination, operation, or use of the Juice software or services with products not furnished or approved by Juice; (2) any Customer breach of this Agreement including any use of Software Services in a manner that exceeds the access rights granted herein; or (3) the Customer Content (circumstances under the foregoing clauses (1), (2) and (3) collectively, the “Customer Indemnity Responsibilities”).
(b) In the event of an infringement action against Juice with respect to any Services provided by Juice hereunder, or in the event that Juice believes that such an action is likely, Juice may, at its option (i) appropriately modify such software and/or services so that they become non-infringing, or substitute functionally equivalent software or services; (ii) obtain a license to the applicable third-party intellectual property rights; or (iii) terminate this Agreement on written notice to Customer. The obligations set forth in this Section will constitute Juice’s entire liability and Customer’s sole remedy for any actual or alleged infringement or misappropriation.
9.2 Indemnification by Customer. Customer will indemnify, hold harmless, and, at Juice’s option, defend Juice from and against all losses, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), damages, and liabilities resulting from any claim by any third party arising from or in connection with Customer Indemnity Responsibilities. In the event that Juice elects to require Customer to provide defense for such claim, Juice agrees to give Customer (i) prompt written notice of such claim; (ii) authority to control and direct the defense and/or settlement thereof; and (iii) such information and assistance as Customer may reasonably request, at Customer’s expense, in connection with such defense and/or settlement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer will not settle any third-party claim against Juice unless such settlement completely and forever releases Juice with respect thereto or unless Juice provides its prior written consent to such settlement. In any action for which Customer provides defense on behalf of Juice, Juice may participate in such defense at its own expense by counsel of its choice.
