Modification. No modification of this Agreement shall be valid unless the same shall be in writing and signed by the Indemnitor and the Indemnitee, provided however that if the Indemnitee is requested to or agrees to act as a member of the Board of Directors of any subsidiary of the Indemnitor, the indemnity provided for herein shall automatically be deemed to apply to the Indemnitee acting as such, mutatis mutandis. It is hereby clarified that on the date hereof Indemnitee serves as a consultant to the Subsidiary and that the indemnity provided for herein applies to the Indemnitee acting in such position, mutatis mutandis. 11. Procedure For Claims. (1) In the event the Indemnitee is named as a party in any action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation upon which the Indemnitee intends to base a claim for indemnification hereunder, the Indemnitee shall give the Indemnitor prompt written notice of such action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation (provided, however, that failure of the Indemnitee to provide such notice shall not relieve the Indemnitor of any liability to the Indemnitee the Indemnitor may have under this Agreement excepted, to the extent that the Indemnitor is materially prejudiced by such failure). (2) The Indemnitor shall participate in and, assume the defense of any such action, including for certainty any derivative action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation all at the Indemnitor's expense provided, however, that counsel retained by the Indemnitor shall be satisfactory to the Indemnitee in the exercise of his reasonable judgement. Notwithstanding the Indemnitor's assumption of the defense of such action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation, the Indemnitee shall have the right to employ separate counsel and to participate in, but not control, the defense of such action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation, and the Indemnitor shall bear the reasonable fees, costs and expenses of such separate counsel as such fees, costs and expenses are incurred (provided that with respect to any single action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation, the Indemnitor shall not be required to bear the fees, costs and expenses of more than one such counsel in any single jurisdiction) if (a) the use of counsel chosen by the Indemnitor to represent the Indemnitee would present such counsel with a conflict of interest; (b) the defendants, respondents or other parties in any such action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation include both the Indemnitee on the one hand and the Indemnitor on the other hand, and the Indemnitee has reasonably concluded that representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between them (in which case the Indemnitor shall not have the right to direct the defense of such action, claim, suit, proceeding or investigation on behalf of the Indemnitee); (c) the Indemnitor shall not have employed counsel satisfactory to the Indemnitee in the exercise of the Indemnitee's reasonable judgment to represent him, within a reasonable time after notice of the institution of such action, proceeding or investigation; or (d) the Indemnitor authorizes the Indemnitee to employ separate counsel at the Indemnitor's expense. (3) The Indemnitee shall cooperate with the Indemnitor in the Indemnitor's defense by providing such information and other assistance which the Indemnitor may reasonably request in connection with such defense. (4) The Indemnitor shall not, without the Indemnitee's prior written consent, settle, compromise, consent to the entry of any judgment in or otherwise seek to terminate any action, claim, suit or proceeding in respect of which indemnification may be sought hereunder (whether or not the Indemnitee is a party thereto) unless such settlement, compromise, consent or termination includes a release of the Indemnitee from any liabilities arising out of such action, claim, suit or proceeding. The Indemnitee shall not, without the Indemnitor's prior written consent, admit liability, settle, compromise, consent to the entry of any judgment in or otherwise seek to terminate any action, claim, suit, investigation or proceeding referred to in the preceding paragraph and the Indemnitee shall not disclose the existence of this Agreement unless required by law, subpoena, court order or upon the advice of counsel. 12. Resignation. Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent the Indemnitee from resigning [as an officer/from the Board of Directors] of the Indemnitor or from exercising any rights he may have to terminate any agreement he may have with the Indemnitor. 13. Termination. The obligations of the Indemnitor shall not terminate or be released upon the Indemnitee ceasing to act as a member of the Board of Directors of the Indemnitor at any time or times and such obligations shall survive the resignation of the Indemnitee. The Indemnitor's obligations may be terminated or released only by a written instrument executed by the Indemnitee. 14. Tax Gross Up. The amount of any indemnity payable to the Indemnitee will be computed in accordance with the following formula: (B - D) A = --------- (1 - C) where: A = the amount of indemnity payable by the Indemnitor to the Indemnitee pursuant to this Agreement, B = the amount of indemnity that would otherwise be payable by the Indemnitor to the Indemnitee pursuant to this Agreement on the assumption that such amount is computed without reference to any increased liability of the Indemnitee under applicable income, payroll, value added or any other tax laws arising in consequence of such payment, C = the aggregate of the highest effective rates of all taxes (including all surtaxes) under such tax laws applicable to the Indemnitee in respect of such payment, after giving effect to any applicable bilateral tax convention or treaty, and D = any such tax required by law to be paid by or for the account of the Indemnitee on or with respect to the Grossed Up Amount, and which is deducted by the Indemnitor from that amount and remitted to a lawful taxing authority for the account of the Indemnitee. For the purposes of this section, "Grossed Up Amount" means (B) divided by (1-C), B and C having meanings as defined above. 15. Advances. In any case in which the Indemnitee incurs or becomes liable to pay any amount in respect of which he is entitled to be indemnified by the Indemnitor pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, the Indemnitor shall advance such amount to the Indemnitee by way of loan forthwith upon written demand therefor by the Indemnitee to the Indemnitor. Such notice shall be accompanied by a written undertaking by the Indemnitee to repay the full amount of any funds so advanced forthwith upon it being determined by the court on application for such approval, that the Indemnitee is not entitled to indemnification in respect thereof. In that event any amount so advanced shall be repaid forthwith following such determination and shall bear interest at 2% above the prime rate charged by the Indemnitor's bankers to its preferred commercial customers from time to time during the period from the date of advance to the date of repayment. 16. Notices. Any notice to be given by one party to the other shall be sufficient if delivered by hand, deposited in any Post Office in Israel, registered, postage prepaid, or sent by means of electronic transmission (in which case any message so transmitted shall be immediately confirmed in writing and mailed as provided above), addressed, as the case may be: (a) To the Indemnitor: SafeTek International, Inc. ________________________________ Facsimile: ____________________ Attention: ____________ (b) To the Indemnitee: _______________________ _______________________ Facsimile: ______________________ or at such other address of which notice is given by the parties pursuant to the provisions of this section.
