13.1 Indemnification by Us. We will indemnify, defend, and hold You harmless from and against any claim brought by a third party against You by reason of Your use of a Service as permitted hereunder, alleging that such Service infringes or misappropriates a third party’s valid patent, copyright, trademark, or trade secret (an “IP Claim”). We shall, at Our expense, defend such IP Claim and pay damages finally awarded against You in connection therewith, including the reasonable fees and expenses of the attorneys engaged by JFA for such defence, provided that (a) You promptly notify JFA of the threat or notice of such IP Claim; (b) We will have the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defence attorneys, and defend and/or settle any such IP Claim (however, We shall not settle or compromise any claim that results in liability or admission of any liability by You without Your prior written consent); and (c) You fully cooperate with JFA in connection therewith. If use of a Service by You, End-users or End-Users has become, or, in Our opinion, is likely to become, the subject of any such IP Claim, We may, at Our option and expense, (i) procure for You the right to continue using the Service(s) as set forth hereunder; (ii) replace or modify a Service to make it non-infringing; or (iii) if options (i) or (ii) are not commercially reasonable or practicable as determined by JFA, terminate Your subscription to the Service(s) and repay You, on a pro-rata basis, any Subscription Charges previously paid to JFA for the corresponding unused portion of Your Subscription Term for such Service(s). We will have no liability or obligation under this Section 14.1 with respect to any IP Claim if such claim is caused in whole or in part by (x) compliance with designs, data, instructions or specifications provided by You; (y) modification of the Service(s) by anyone other than JFA or JFA Personnel; or (z) the combination, operation or use of the Service(s) with other hardware or software where a Service would not by itself be infringing. The provisions of this Section 14.1 state the sole, exclusive, and entire liability of JFA to You and constitute Your sole remedy with respect to an IP Claim brought by reason of access to or use of a Service by You, End-users, or End-Users.
13.2 Indemnification by You. You will indemnify, defend and hold JFA harmless against any claim brought by a third party against JFA (a) arising from or related to use of a Service by You, End-users or End-Users in breach of this Agreement; or (b) alleging that Your use of the Service or Your Service Data infringes or misappropriates a third party’s valid patent, copyright, trademark or trade secret; provided that (i) We promptly notify You of the threat or notice of such claim; (ii) You will have the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defence attorneys, and defend and/or settle any such claim (however, You shall not settle or compromise any claim that results in liability or admission of any liability by Us without Our prior written consent); and (iii) We fully cooperate with You in connection therewith.
14.1 under no circumstances and under no legal theory (whether in contract, tort, negligence or otherwise) will either party to this agreement, or their affiliates, officers, directors, employees, end-users, service providers, suppliers or licensors be liable to the other party or any affiliate for any lost profits, lost sales or business, lost data (being data lost in the course of transmission via your systems or over the internet through no fault of JFA), business interruption, loss of goodwill, costs of cover or replacement, or for any other type of indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, consequential or punitive loss or damages, or for any other indirect loss or damages incurred by the other party or any affiliate in connection with this Agreement or the Services, regardless of whether such party has been advised of the possibility of or could have foreseen such damages.
14.2 Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the John Foord Group’s aggregate liability to You, any Affiliate, or any third party arising out of this Agreement or the Services shall in no event exceed the Subscription charges paid by you during the twelve (12) months prior to the first event or occurrence giving rise to such liability. You acknowledge and agree that the essential purpose of this section 15.2 is to allocate the risks under this Agreement between the Parties and limit potential liability given the Subscription Charges, which would have been substantially higher if we were to assume any further liability other than as set forth herein. We have relied on these limitations in determining whether to provide you with the rights to access and use the Services provided for in this Agreement.
The limitations set forth in section 15.2 shall not apply to claims or damages resulting from JFA’s IP claims indemnity obligations in section 14.1 of this agreement.
14.3 The limitation of liability provided for herein will apply in aggregate to any and all claims by Subscriber and its Affiliates and shall not be cumulative.
14.4 Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages or for personal injury or death, which means that some of the above limitations may not apply to You. In these jurisdictions, JFA’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by law.
14.5 Any claims or damages that You may have against JFA shall only be enforceable against JFA and not any other entity, nor any officers, directors, representatives or employees of John Foord Group or any other entity.
Third-Party Service Providers. You agree that JFA, and the third-party service providers that are utilised by JFA to assist in providing the Services to You, shall have the right to access Your Account and to use, modify, reproduce, distribute, display, and disclose the Personal Data of Your End-users to the extent necessary to provide, secure or improve the Services.
