No party shall have any obligation to provide indemnification for any Losses resulting from a breach of a representation or warranty if a notice of such breach is not submitted to the Indemnifying Party within the Survival Period.

From and after the Closing Date and until the expiration of the Survival Period, the Purchaser and the Company shall reimburse, indemnify, and hold harmless Seller and any of Seller’s directors, officers and stockholders, including their respective heirs, executors, administrators, agents, successors and assigns (all of which are referred to herein as a “Seller Indemnified Party”) against and in respect of any and all Losses (as defined in Section 4.5, below) suffered, sustained, incurred or required to be paid by any Seller Indemnified Party, which arises or results from a third-party claim brought against a Seller Indemnified Party to the extent based on (i) a breach of any of the representations and warranties of the Purchaser set forth in this Agreement, (ii) any breach by the Purchaser or, after the Closing Date, the Company of any covenant, obligation or other agreement made by the Company or Purchaser in this Agreement, and (iii) a third party claim based upon any acts or omissions by the Purchaser or the Company after the Closing provided such claim is not based upon acts or omissions of the Seller Indemnified Party.

4.4. Indemnification Procedures.
(a) In order for any Seller Indemnified Party or Purchaser Indemnified Party (collectively, an “Indemnified Party”) to be entitled to any indemnification provided for under this Article 4 of this Agreement, the Indemnified Party shall deliver notice of its claim for indemnification to the party from whom indemnity pursuant to this Agreement is claimed (an “Indemnifying Party”) with reasonable promptness after determining to make such claim. The failure by any Indemnified Party to notify the Indemnifying Party shall not relieve any relevant Indemnifying Party from any liability which it may have to such Indemnified Party under this Agreement, except to the extent that such claim for indemnification involves the claim of a third party against the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party shall have been actually prejudiced by such failure. If an indemnifying party does not notify the Indemnified Party within thirty (30) calendar days following receipt by it of such notice that such Indemnifying Party disputes its liability to the Indemnified Party under this Agreement, such claim specified by the Indemnified Party in such notice shall be conclusively deemed a liability of such Indemnifying Party under this Agreement and such Indemnifying Party shall pay the amount of such liability to the Indemnified Party on demand or, in the case of any notice in which the amount of the claim (or any portion thereof) is estimated, on such later date when the amount of such claim (or such portion thereof) becomes finally determined. If an Indemnifying Party has timely disputed its liability with respect to such claim, as provided above, such Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall proceed in good faith to negotiate a resolution of such dispute and, if not resolved through negotiations, such dispute shall be resolved by litigation or such other means as determined by the Parties.
(b) If the claim for indemnification involves a third party claim (a “Third Party Claim”), then the Indemnifying Party shall have the right, at its sole cost, expense and ultimate liability regardless of the outcome, and through counsel of its choice (which counsel shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party), to litigate, defend, settle or otherwise attempt to resolve such Third Party Claim; provided, however, that if in the Indemnified Party’s reasonable judgment a conflict of interest may exist between the Indemnified Party and the Indemnifying Party with respect to such Third Party Claim, then the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to select counsel of its own choosing, reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnifying Party, in which event the Indemnifying Party shall be obligated to pay the reasonable fees and expenses of such counsel.
(c) Notwithstanding the provision of Section 4.4(b), if in the Indemnified Party’s reasonable judgment no such conflict exists, the Indemnified Party may, but will not be obligated to, participate at its own expense in a defense of such Third Party Claim by counsel of its own choosing, but the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to control the defense unless (i) in the case where only money damages are sought, the Indemnified Party has relieved the Indemnifying Party from liability with respect to the particular matter or (ii) in the case where equitable relief is sought, the Indemnified Party elects to participate in and jointly control the defense thereof.
(d) Whenever the Indemnifying Party controls the defense of a Third Party Claim, the Indemnifying Party may only settle or compromise the matter subject to indemnification without the consent of the Indemnified Party only if such settlement includes a complete release of all Indemnified Parties as to the matters in dispute and relates solely to money damages. The Indemnified Party will not unreasonably withhold or delay consent to any settlement or compromise that requires its consent.
(e) In the event the Indemnifying Party fails to timely defend, contest, or otherwise protect the Indemnified Party against any such claim or suit, the Indemnified Party may, but will not be obligated to, defend, contest, or otherwise protect against the same, and make any compromise or settlement thereof, and in such event, or in the case where the Indemnified Party jointly controls such claim or suit, the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to recover its costs thereof from the Indemnifying Party, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, disbursements and all amounts paid as a result of such claim or suit or the compromise or settlement thereof.
(f) The Indemnified Party shall cooperate and provide such assistance as the Indemnifying Party may reasonably request in connection with the defense of the matter subject to indemnification and in connection with recovering from any third parties amounts that the Indemnifying Party may pay or be required to pay by way of indemnification hereunder.
(g) The amount of Losses for which indemnification is provided hereunder shall be computed without regard to any insurance recovery related to such Losses.
(h) With respect to any Loss for which an Indemnified Party has made a claim for indemnification against an Indemnifying Party prior to the termination of the Survival Period in accordance with this Agreement, the Survival Period shall be deemed continued until final resolution of such claim for indemnification.
4.5. Losses. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “Losses” shall mean any and all demands, claims, complaints, actions or causes of action, suits, proceedings, investigations, arbitrations, assessments, losses, damages, diminution in value, deficiencies, payments, liabilities or obligations (including those arising out of any action, such as any settlement or compromise thereof or judgment or award therein) and any fees, costs and expenses related thereto, including without limitation reasonable legal expenses, including the fees, costs and expenses of any kind incurred by any party indemnified herein and its counsel in investigating, preparing for, defending against or providing evidence, producing documents or taking other action with respect to any threatened or asserted claim.
