Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such Subscriber Indemnified Person and shall survive the transfer of the Registrable Securities by the Subscribers.
 
(ii)  
In the event any Registrable Securities are included in the Registration Statement under this Section 4 to the extent permitted by law, each Subscriber shall, severally and not jointly, indemnify, hold harmless and defend, to the same extent and in the same manner as is set forth in Section 4, the Company, each of its directors, each of its officers who signs the registration statement and each Person, if any, who controls the Company within the meaning of the Securities Act or the Securities Exchange Act  of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), (each, a “Company Indemnified Person”), against any Claim, insofar as such Claims arise out of or are based upon any Violation, in each case to the extent, and only to the extent, that such Violation occurs in reliance upon and in strict conformity with written information furnished to the Company by such Subscriber expressly for use in the Registration Statement; and, subject to Section 4, such Subscriber will reimburse any legal or other expenses reasonably incurred by any Company Indemnified Person in connection with investigating or defending any such Claim; provided, however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 4 shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any Claim if such settlement is effected without the prior written consent of the indemnifying Subscriber, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Such indemnity shall remain in full force and effect regardless of any investigation made by or on behalf of such Company Indemnified Person and shall survive the transfer of the Registrable Securities by the Subscribers.

(iii)  
Promptly after receipt by a Subscriber Indemnified Person or Company Indemnified Person (each, an “Indemnified Person”) under this Section 4 of notice of a Claim, such Indemnified Person shall, if a Claim in respect thereof is to be made against any indemnifying party under this Section 4, deliver to the indemnifying party a written notice of the commencement thereof, and the indemnifying party shall, by giving written notice to the Indemnified Party within fifteen days after the Indemnified Party has given notice of the Claim, have the right to participate in, and, to the extent the indemnifying party so desires, jointly with any other indemnifying party similarly noticed, to assume control of the defense thereof with counsel mutually satisfactory to the indemnifying party and the Indemnified Person; provided, however, that an Indemnified Person shall have the right to retain its own counsel with the fees and expenses of not more than one counsel for such Indemnified Person to be paid by the indemnifying party, if, in the reasonable opinion of counsel retained by the indemnifying party, the representation by such counsel of the Subscriber Indemnified Person or Company Indemnified Person and the indemnifying party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such Indemnified Person and any other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding. In the case of any Company Indemnified Person, legal counsel referred to in the proviso of the immediately preceding sentence shall be selected by the holders holding at least a majority in interest of the Registrable Securities included in the registration statement to which the Claim relates. The Indemnified Person shall cooperate fully with the indemnifying party in connection with any negotiation or defense of any such action or Claim by the indemnifying party and shall furnish to the indemnifying party all information reasonably available to the Indemnified Person that relates to such action or Claim. The indemnifying party shall keep the Indemnified Person reasonably apprised at all times as to the status of the defense or any settlement negotiations with respect thereto. No indemnifying party shall be liable for any settlement of any action, claim or proceeding effected without its prior written consent, provided, however, that the indemnifying party shall not unreasonably withhold, delay or condition its consent. No indemnifying party shall, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Person, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement or other compromise that does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Person of a full and general release from all liability in respect to such Claim or litigation, and such settlement (a) shall provide for the payment by the Indemnifying Party of money as sole relief for the claimant, (b) shall not include any finding or admission as to fault on the part of the Indemnified Person and (c) shall have no effect on any other claims that may be made against the Indemnified Party.
 
Following indemnification as provided for hereunder, the indemnifying party shall be subrogated to all rights of the Indemnified Person with respect to all third parties, firms or corporations relating to the matter for which indemnification has been made. The failure to deliver written notice to the indemnifying party within a reasonable time of the commencement of any such action shall not relieve such indemnifying party of any liability to the Indemnified Person under this Section 4, except to the extent that the indemnifying party is materially prejudiced in its ability to defend such action.

(f)
(i)
Indemnification Generally.  The Company, on the one hand, and the Subscriber, on the other hand (for the purpose of this Section 6(f) only, each an “Indemnifying Party”), shall indemnify the other from and against any and all losses, damages, liabilities, claims, charges, actions, proceedings, demands, judgments, settlement costs and expenses of any nature whatsoever (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) resulting from any breach of a representation and warranty, covenant or agreement by the Indemnifying Party and all claims, charges, actions or proceedings incident to or arising out of the foregoing.  Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, the indemnification obligation of any Subscriber shall be limited to the investment amount in the Shares purchased by said Subscriber, except to the extent that such indemnification obligation relates to a breach of Section 2(b).

 
(ii)
Indemnification Procedures.  Each person entitled to indemnification under this Section 6 (for the purpose of this Section 6(f) only, an “Indemnified Party”) shall give notice as promptly as reasonably practicable to each party required to provide indemnification under this Section 6 of any action commenced against or by it in respect of which indemnity may be sought hereunder, but failure to so notify an Indemnifying Party shall not release such Indemnifying Party from any liability that it may have, otherwise than on account of this indemnity agreement so long as such failure shall not have materially prejudiced the position of the Indemnifying Party.  Upon such notification, the Indemnifying Party shall assume the defense of such action if it is a claim brought by a third party, and, if and after such assumption, the Indemnifying Party shall not be entitled to reimbursement of any expenses incurred by it in connection with such action except as described below.  In any such action, any Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain its own counsel, but the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of such Indemnified Party unless (i) the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party shall have mutually agreed to the contrary or (ii) the named parties in any such action (including any impleaded parties) include both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party and representation of both parties by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing or conflicting interests between them.  The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for any settlement of any proceeding effected without its written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed by such Indemnifying Party), but if settled with such consent or if there be final judgment for the plaintiff, the Indemnifying Party shall indemnify the Indemnified Party from and against any loss, damage or liability by reason of such settlement or judgment.
