Claims Procedures. Each Party entitled to be indemnified by the other Party (an “Indemnified Party”) pursuant to Section 12.1 or 12.2 hereof shall give notice to the other Party (an “Indemnifying Party”) promptly after such Indemnified Party has actual knowledge of any threatened or asserted claim as to which indemnity may be sought, and shall permit the Indemnifying Party to assume the defense of any such claim or any litigation resulting therefrom; provided:
Claims Procedures. The Officer may file a claim for a payment under the Executive Severance Plan by filing a written request for such a payment with the Plan Administrator. If the Plan Administrator prescribes a form for such a claim, the claim must be filed on such form. The claim should be sent to the attention of the Plan Administrator of the Executive Severance Plan at the address set forth for Umpqua in Section 20. If the Plan Administrator denies the claim, in whole or in part, the Plan Administrator shall notify the Officer within 90 days of the Plan Administrator’s receipt of the claim, unless the Plan Administrator determines that special circumstances require an extension of time for processing the claim. If the Plan Administrator determines that an extension of time is required, written notice of the extension shall be furnished to Officer prior to the termination of the initial 90-day period. Such extension notice shall indicate the special circumstances and the date by which the Plan Administrator expects to issue a determination with respect to the claim. The period of the extension will not exceed 90 days beyond the termination of the original 90-day period. If the Plan Administrator does not provide written notice, Officer may deem the claim denied and seek review according to the appeals procedures set forth below. The notice of denial of Officer’s claim shall state:
Claims Procedures. This Section 7.1 is based on final regulations issued by the Department of Labor and published in the Federal Register on November 21, 2000 and codified at section 2560.503 1 of the Department of Labor Regulations. If any provision of this Section 8.4 conflicts with the requirements of those regulations, the requirements of those regulations will prevail.
Claims Procedures. In the case of any Damages for which indemnification is sought hereunder, the party seeking indemnification (the "Indemnitee") shall promptly notify the party from whom indemnification is sought (the "Indemnifying Party") in writing of the existence and nature of such Damages, as well as the claim, demand, action or proceeding, if any, out of which the Damages arise (a "Claim"); provided, however, that no failure or delay by the Indemnitee in the performance of the foregoing shall reduce or otherwise affect the obligation of the Indemnifying Party to indemnify and hold the Indemnitee harmless, except to the extent the Indemnitee's failure to give or delay in giving the required notice materially impairs the Indemnifying Party's ability to indemnify, defend or mitigate its Damages, in which case the Indemnifying Party shall have no obligation to indemnify the Indemnitee to the extent of Damages, if any, caused by such failure to give or delay in giving the required notice. If such Damages arise out of a Claim by a third party, the Indemnitee must give the Indemnifying Party a reasonable opportunity to defend the same or prosecute such action to conclusion or settlement satisfactory to the Indemnifying Party at the Indemnifying Party's sole cost and expense and with counsel of its own selection, and the Indemnifying Party shall pay any resulting settlements (including all associated Damages), satisfy any judgments or comply with any decrees; provided, further, however, that the Indemnitee shall at all times also have the right fully to participate in the defense at Indemnitee's sole cost and expense so long as such participation occurs without hindering or impairing the defense of the Indemnifying Party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, without the prior written consent of the Indemnitee, the Indemnifying Party shall not compromise or settle any Claim if (i) the terms thereof impose any liability or obligations on the Indemnitee or (ii) the terms thereof fail to include an unconditional general release of the Indemnitee with respect to all liabilities and obligations in respect of such Claim. If the Indemnifying Party shall, within a reasonable time after said notice, fail to defend, the Indemnitee shall have the right, but not the obligation, and without waiving any rights against the Indemnifying Party, to undertake the defense of, and with the consent of the Indemnifying Party (such consent not to be withheld unreasonably), to compromise or settle the Claim...
Claims Procedures. If any party shall have any dispute with respect to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, or any subject matter referred to in or governed by this Agreement, that party (through the Fidelity Account Manager or the Customer Account Manager, as the case may be) shall provide written notification to the other party (through the Fidelity Account Manager or the Customer Account Manager, as the case may be) in the form of a claim identifying the issue or amount disputed, if applicable, and including a detailed reason for the claim. The party against whom the claim is made shall respond in writing to the claim within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt of the claim document. The party filing the claim shall have an additional thirty (30) days after the receipt of the response to either accept the resolution offered by the other party or request implementation of the Escalation Procedures. Failure to meet the time limitations set forth in this Section shall automatically result in the implementation of the Escalation Procedures.
Claims Procedures. Promptly upon a party becoming aware of any Claim with respect to which it believes it is entitled to indemnification hereunder, whether under this Section 3.3, Section 7.7, or the other provisions hereof, such party (an “Indemnified Party”) shall notify the other party (the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing of the existence and nature of such Claim, the identity of any third party claimants and a description of the damages and the amount thereof relating to such Claim (the “Claim Notice”). The Indemnified Party shall be responsible for the defense of any Claim unless the Indemnifying Party, upon reasonable notice, requests that the defense of a Claim be tendered to the Indemnifying Party. If:
Claims Procedures. Any claim by the Executive or Beneficiary ("Claimant") with respect to participation, contributions, benefits or other aspects of the operation of the Agreement shall be made in writing to the Secretary of the Company or such other person designated by the Committee from time to time for such purpose. If the designated person receiving a claim believes, following consultation with the Chairman of the Committee, that the claim should be denied, he or she shall notify the Claimant in writing of the denial of the claim within 90 days after his or her receipt thereof (this period may be extended an additional 90 days in special circumstances and, in such event, the Claimant shall be notified in writing of the extension). Such notice shall (a) set forth the specific reason or reasons for the denial making reference to the pertinent provisions of the Agreement on which the denial is based, (b) describe any additional material or information necessary to perfect the claim, and explain why such material or information, if any, is necessary, and (c) inform the Claimant of his or her right pursuant to this section to request review of the decision. A Claimant may appeal the denial of a claim by submitting a written request for review to the Committee, within 60 days after the date on which such denial is received. Such period may be extended by the Committee for good cause shown. The claim will then be reviewed by the Committee. A Claimant or his or her duly authorized representative may discuss any issues relevant to the claim, may review pertinent documents and may submit issues and comments in writing. If the Committee deems it appropriate, it may hold a hearing as to a claim. If a hearing is held, the Claimant shall be entitled to be represented by counsel. The Committee shall decide whether or not to grant the claim within 60 days after receipt of the request for review, but this period may be extended by the Committee for up to an additional 60 days in special circumstances. Written notice of any such special circumstances shall be sent to the Claimant. Any claim not decided upon in the required time period shall be deemed denied. All interpretations, determinations and decisions of the Committee with respect to any claim shall be made in its sole discretion based on the Agreement and other relevant documents and shall be final, conclusive and binding on all persons.
Claims Procedures. With respect to the forgoing indemnifications; (i) each party agrees promptly to notify and keep the other fully advised with respect to such claims and the progress suits in which the other party is not participating; (ii) each party shall have the right to assume, at its sole expense, in any suit instituted against it and to approve any attorney's selected by the other party to defend it, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; and (iv) a party assuming the defense of a claim or suit against the other party shall not settle such a claim or suit without the prior or written approval of the other party, which shall not be unreasonably withheld.
Claims Procedures. A party (the "Indemnitee") which intends to claim indemnification under this Section 13 shall notify the other party (the "Indemnitor") within a reasonable time in writing of any action, claim or liability in respect of which the Indemnitee believes it is entitled to claim indemnification, provided that the failure to give timely notice to the Indemnitor shall not release the Indemnitor from any liability to the Indemnitee to the extent the Indemnitor is not prejudiced thereby. The Indemnitor shall have the right, by notice to the Indemnitee, to assume the defense of any such action or claim within the fifteen (15) day period after the Indemnitor's receipt of notice of any action or claim with counsel of the Indemnitor's choice and at the sole cost of the Indemnitor. If the Indemnitor does not so assume the defense of such third party claim, the Indemnitee may assume such defense with reasonable counsel of its choice and at the sole cost of the Indemnitor. If the Indemnitor so assumes such defense, the Indemnitee may participate therein through counsel of its choice, but at the sole cost of the Indemnitee. The party not assuming the defense of any such claim shall render all reasonable assistance to the party assuming such defense, and all reasonable out-of-pocket costs of such assistance shall be for the account of the Indemnitor. No such claim shall be settled other than by the party defending the same, and then only with 38 43 the consent of the other party which shall not be unreasonably withheld; provided that the Indemnitee shall have no obligation to consent to any settlement of any such action or claim which imposes on the Indemnitee any liability or obligation which cannot be assumed and performed in full by the Indemnitor, and the Indemnitee shall have no right to withhold its consent to any settlement of any such action or claim if the settlement involves only the payment of money by the Indemnitor or its insurer.
