Successful Defense Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, to the extent Indemnitee has been successful, on the merits or otherwise, in defense of any Proceeding (including, without limitation, an action by or in the right of the Company) in which Indemnitee was a party by reason of the fact that Indemnitee is or was an Agent of the Company at any time, the Company shall indemnify Indemnitee against all Expenses actually and reasonably incurred by or on behalf of Indemnitee in connection with the investigation, defense or appeal of such Proceeding.
Notice; Defense of Claims If indemnification is sought for a claim or liability asserted by a third party, the indemnified party shall give written notice thereof to the indemnifying party within ten (10) days after it receives notice of the claim or liability being asserted, but the failure to do so shall not relieve the indemnifying party from any liability except to the extent that it is prejudiced by the failure or delay in giving such notice. Such notice shall summarize the basis for the claim for indemnification and any claim or liability being asserted by the third party. Within ten (10) days after receiving such notice, the indemnifying party shall give written notice to the indemnified party stating whether it will defend against any third party claim or liability at its own cost and expense. If the indemnifying party gives notice to the indemnified party of its intent to defend such claim within such ten (10) day period, the indemnifying party shall be entitled to direct the defense against the third party claim or liability with counsel selected by it (subject to the consent of the indemnified party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld) as long as the indemnifying party is conducting a good faith defense. The indemnified party shall at all times have the right to fully participate in the defense of a third party claim or liability at its own expense directly or through counsel; provided however, that if the named parties to the action or proceeding include both the indemnifying party and the indemnified party and the indemnified party is advised by its counsel that representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate under applicable standards of professional conduct, the indemnified party may engage separate counsel at the expense of the indemnifying party. If no such notice of intent to defend a third party claim or liability is given by the indemnifying party, or if such good faith defense is not being or ceases to be conducted by the indemnifying party, the indemnified party shall have the right, at the expense of the indemnifying party, to undertake the defense of such claim or liability (with counsel selected by the indemnified party). If the third party claim or liability is one that by its nature cannot be defended solely by the indemnifying party, then the indemnified party shall make available such information and assistance as the indemnifying party may reasonably request and shall cooperate with the indemnifying party in such defense at the expense of the indemnifying party. Neither the indemnifying party nor the indemnified party shall settle any third party claim without the consent of the other (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld.)
