other PARTY for damages concerning performance or nonperformance BY A PARTY or in any way
related to the subject matter of this Agreement, regardless of whether the claim for such damages is
based in contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, shall not exceed the aggregate OF Client’s or any

IVI shall defend, indemnify and hold Client harmless from and against any third-party
claim of United States copyright or trade secret infringement relating to the Licensed Software, including
reasonable attorney’s fees associated therewith, provided that Client promptly notifies IVI in writing of any
such claim and allows IVI to control (at IVI’s expense), and fully cooperates with IVI in, the defense of any
such claim and all related settlement negotiations. In the event an injunction is sought or obtained against
Client’s use of the Licensed Software as a result of any such infringement claim, IVI may, at its sole option

that it exercises in connection with its own data.
Except with respect to Client’s obligation to make timely payments, neither party shall be
responsible for any delay or failure in performance to the extent that such delay or failure is caused by fires,
strikes, embargoes, explosion, earthquakes, floods, wars, labor disputes, legal or regulatory requirements,
civil or military authorities, acts of God or by the public enemy, inability to secure raw materials or
transportation facilities, acts or omissions of carriers or suppliers, or interruptions in power,

parties. Neither the course of conduct between the Parties nor any trade practice shall act to modify the
