Indemnification for Infringement
Lumenore shall, at its expense, defend or settle any claim, action or allegation brought against Client that the Software infringes any U.S. patent or U.S. copyright and shall pay any final judgments awarded or settlements entered into, provided that Client gives Lumenore prompt written notice of, reasonable assistance in, and sole control over the defense or settlement of such claims.

Failure of the indemnitee to give notice of a claim as required in this Section shall excuse and discharge the indemnitor's obligations unless the indemnitee can prove both good cause for failing to give notice and an absence of unfair prejudice to the indemnitor. The indemnitee may participate in any defense at its sole expense. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Section to the contrary, the indemnitor shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement that provides for injunctive relief against the indemnitee without the indemnitee's written consent, which will not be unreasonably withheld.
No change, waiver, or discharge hereof shall be valid unless in writing and signed by the Party against which it is sought to be enforced. No delay or omission by either Party in exercising any right hereunder shall be construed as a waiver. A waiver by either of the Parties of any provision or breach shall not be a waiver of any other provision or breach.

Such consent may be withheld in the other Party's sole discretion.

Both Parties agree that they shall disclose Confidential Information only to those employees who need to know such information and both Parties certify that such employees have previously agreed, either as a condition to employment or in order to obtain the Confidential Information, to be bound by terms and conditions substantially similar to those of this Agreement.

Any sections of this Agreement that by their nature may reasonably be presumed to have been intended to survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement, shall survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
