5. CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION.
5.1 Definition. As used herein, “Confidential Information” means any information that one Party (the “Disclosing Party”) provides to the other Party (the “Receiving Party”) in connection with this Agreement, whether orally or in writing, that is designated as confidential or that reasonably should be considered to be confidential given the nature of the information and/or the circumstances of disclosure. For clarity, any nonpublic features or information related to the Platform Services will be deemed Confidential Information of Anyscale, and Customer Property will be treated as Confidential Information of Customer. However, Confidential Information will not include any information or materials that: (a) are at the date of disclosure, or have subsequently become, generally known or available to the public through no act or failure to act by the Receiving Party; (b) are rightfully known by the Receiving Party prior to receiving such information or materials from the Disclosing Party; (c) are rightfully acquired by the Receiving Party from a third party who has the right to disclose such information or materials without breach of any confidentiality or non-use obligation to the Disclosing Party; or (d) are independently developed by or for the Receiving Party without use of or access to any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.
5.2 Obligations. The Receiving Party will maintain the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information in strict confidence, and will not use the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party except as necessary to perform its obligations or exercise its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party will not disclose or cause to be disclosed any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, except (a) to those employees, representatives, or contractors of the Receiving Party who have a bona fide need to know such Confidential Information to perform under this Agreement and who are bound by written agreements with use and nondisclosure restrictions at least as protective as those set forth in this Agreement, or (b) as such disclosure may be required by the order or requirement of a court, administrative agency or other governmental body, subject to the Receiving Party providing to the Disclosing Party reasonable written notice to allow the Disclosing Party to seek a protective order or otherwise contest the disclosure. The provisions of this Section 5.2 will supersede any non-disclosure agreement by and between the Parties (whether entered into before, on or after the Effective Date) that would purport to address the confidentiality and security of Customer Property and such agreement will have no further force or effect with respect to Customer Property.
6.1 Platform Services Warranties. Anyscale warrants that the Platform Services will operate in substantial conformity with the applicable Documentation. If Anyscale is not able to materially correct any reported non-conformity with this warranty, either Party may terminate the applicable Order Form, and Customer, as its sole remedy, will be entitled to receive a refund of any prepaid unused Fees for the applicable Platform Services purchased thereunder. This warranty will not apply if the error or non-conformance was caused by misuse of the Platform Services, modifications to the Platform Services by Customer or any third-party, or third-party hardware, software, or services used in connection with the Platform Services.
6.2 Mutual Warranties. Each Party hereby warrants to the other Party that: (a) if it is a company or other legal entity, it is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under its jurisdiction of organization and has the right to enter into this Agreement and (b) the execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby are within the corporate powers of such Party and have been duly authorized by all necessary corporate action on the part of such Party, and constitute a valid and binding agreement of such Party.
6.3 Disclaimer. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH HEREIN, THE PLATFORM SERVICES AND OTHER ANYSCALE IP ARE PROVIDED ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, AND ANYSCALE MAKES NO WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS TO CUSTOMER, ITS AUTHORIZED USERS OR TO ANY OTHER PARTY REGARDING THE ANYSCALE IP, THE PLATFORM SERVICES OR ANY OTHER SERVICES OR MATERIALS PROVIDED HEREUNDER. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, ANYSCALE HEREBY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, ANYSCALE HEREBY DISCLAIMS ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE RESULTS OBTAINED FROM THE USE OF THE ANYSCALE SERVICES OR THE CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM SUCH USE AND ANY WARRANTY THAT USE OF THE PLATFORM SERVICES WILL BE ERROR-FREE, BUG-FREE OR UNINTERRUPTED.
7.1 Anyscale Indemnification. Subject to Sections 7.2 and 7.5, Anyscale will defend Customer against any claim, suit or proceeding brought by a third party (“Claims”) against Customer alleging that Customer’s authorized access or use of the Platform Services infringes or misappropriates such third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, and will indemnify and hold harmless Customer against any damages and costs awarded against Customer or agreed in settlement by Anyscale (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such Claim.
7.2 Exclusions. Anyscale’s obligations under Section 7.1 will not apply if the underlying third-party Claim arises from or as a result of: (a) Customer’s breach of this Agreement, negligence, willful misconduct or fraud; (b) any Customer Property; (c) Customer’s failure to use any enhancements, modifications, or updates to the Platform Services that have been provided by Anyscale; (d) modifications to the Platform Services by anyone other than Anyscale; or (e) combinations of the Platform Services with software, data or materials not provided by Anyscale.
7.3 IP Remedies. If Anyscale reasonably believes the Platform Services (or any component thereof) could infringe any third party’s Intellectual Property Rights, Anyscale may, at its sole option and expense use commercially reasonable efforts to: (a) modify or replace the Platform Services, or any component or part thereof, to make it non-infringing; or (b) procure the right for Customer to continue using the Platform Services. If Anyscale determines that neither alternative is commercially practicable, Anyscale may terminate this Agreement, in its entirety or with respect to the affected component, by providing written notice to Customer. In the event of any such termination, Anyscale will refund to Customer a pro-rata portion of the Fees that have been prepaid for the applicable Platform Services. The rights and remedies set forth in this Section 7 will constitute Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any infringement or misappropriation of Intellectual Property Rights in connection with the Platform Services.
7.4 Customer Indemnification. Subject to Section 7.5, Customer will defend Anyscale against Claims arising from (a) any Customer Property, including, without limitation, (i) any Claim that the Customer Property infringes, misappropriates or otherwise violates any third party’s Intellectual Property Rights or privacy or other rights; or (ii) any Claim that the use by Customer of the Platform Services, including the processing of Customer Property, violates any applicable law, rule or regulation; (b) any of Customer’s products or services; and (c) access or use of the Platform Services by Customer or its Authorized Users in a manner that is not in accordance with this Agreement or the Documentation, including, without limitation, any breach of Section 2.2 or Section 2.3, and in each case, will indemnify and hold harmless Anyscale against any damages and costs awarded against Anyscale or agreed in settlement by Customer (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from such Claim.
7.5 Indemnification Procedures. The Party seeking defense and indemnity (the “Indemnified Party”) will promptly notify the other Party in writing (the “Indemnifying Party”) of the Claim for which indemnity is being sought and will reasonably cooperate with the Indemnifying Party in the defense and/or settlement thereof. The Indemnifying Party will have the sole right to conduct the defense of any Claim for which the Indemnifying Party is responsible hereunder (provided that the Indemnifying Party may not settle any Claim without the Indemnified Party’s prior written approval unless the settlement is for a monetary amount, unconditionally releases the Indemnified Party from all liability without prejudice, does not require any admission by the Indemnified Party, and does not place restrictions upon the Indemnified Party’s business, products or services). The Indemnified Party may participate in the defense or settlement of any such Claim at its own expense and with its own choice of counsel or, if the Indemnifying Party refuses to fulfill its obligation of defense, the Indemnified Party may defend itself and seek reimbursement from the Indemnifying Party.
