Prior to offsetting any such amounts, Google will provide Company with notice and a 5 day cure period. Google may also withhold and offset against its payment obligations under this Agreement, or require Company to pay to Google within 30 days of any invoice, any amounts Google may have overpaid to Company in prior periods.

 

(d) SAS 70. Upon written request to Google (not more than once during the Term), Google will make available to Company a SAS70 report from a reputable, independent certified public accounting firm covering the key controls and validation mechanisms in place at Google to meet the revenue reporting obligations under this Agreement.

The indemnifying party has full control and authority over the defense, except that any settlement requiring the party seeking indemnification to admit liability or to pay any money will require that party’s prior written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. The other party may join in the defense with its own counsel at its own expense. THE INDEMNITIES IN SUBSECTIONS 11.1(a) and 11.2(a) ARE THE ONLY REMEDY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT FOR VIOLATION OF A THIRD PARTY’S INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
