6. Confidential Information. From time to time during the Term, Provider and Client may disclose or make available to the other party information about its business affairs, products, confidential intellectual property, trade secrets, third-party confidential information, and other sensitive information, whether orally or in written, electronic, or other form or media, and whether or not marked, designated, or otherwise identified as “confidential” at the time of disclosure (collectively, “Confidential Information”).

Despite the preceding, each party may disclose Confidential Information to the limited extent required (i) to comply with the order of a court or other governmental body, or as otherwise necessary to comply with law, on condition that the party making the disclosure under the order shall first have given written notice to the other party and made a reasonable effort to obtain a protective order; or (ii) to establish a party’s rights under this agreement, including to make required court filings. Each party’s obligations of nondisclosure regarding Confidential Information are effective from the date that Confidential Information is first disclosed to the receiving party and will expire five years afterwards, except that as to any Confidential Information that constitutes a trade secret (as determined under law), those obligations of nondisclosure will survive the termination of this agreement for as long as that Confidential Information remains subject to trade secret protection under law.

All Feedback is and will be treated as nonconfidential. You hereby assign us for you, and shall cause your employees, contractors, and agents to assign, all interest in, and we are free to use, without any attribution or compensation to you or any nonparty, any ideas, know-how, concepts, techniques, or other intellectual property rights contained in the Feedback, for any purpose, although we are not required to use any Feedback.
10. Limited Warranty and Warranty Disclaimers.

If Provider determines that neither alternative is reasonably available, Provider may terminate this agreement, in its entirety or for the affected component or part, effective immediately on written notice to Client. This section 11(a)(ii) sets out your sole remedies and our sole liability and obligation for any actual, threatened, or alleged Nonparty Claims that the Services infringe, misappropriate, or otherwise violate any intellectual property rights of any nonparty.
(iii) This section 11(a) will not apply if any such Nonparty Claim arises from Client Data.
(b) Client Indemnification. Client shall indemnify Provider and its officers, managers, members, employees, agents, affiliates, successors, and assigns against all Losses arising from or relating to any Nonparty Claim (including any claim brought by an End User) (i) that the Client Data, or any use of the Client Data in accordance with this agreement, infringes or misappropriates that nonparty’s intellectual property rights; or (ii) based on Client’s or any Authorized User’s negligence or willful misconduct or use of the Services in a manner not authorized by this agreement, on condition that Client shall not settle any Nonparty Claim against Provider unless Provider consents to that settlement, and further on condition that Provider may, at its option, defend itself against any such Nonparty Claim or to participate in the defense of it by counsel of its own choice.

In no event will Provider’s aggregate liability arising out of or related to this agreement under any legal or equitable theory, including breach of contract, tort (including negligence), strict liability, or otherwise exceed the total amounts paid to Provider under this agreement in the three-month period preceding the event giving rise to the claim. The exclusions and limitations in this section 12 do not apply to the parties’ obligations under section 11.
13. Term and Termination.
(a) Term. The Term of this agreement begins on the Effective Date and continues for the Subscription Period. The initial Subscription Period will automatically extend for a further Subscription Period at the end of the initial Subscription Period and at the end of each Subscription Period afterwards, unless earlier terminated under this agreement’s express provisions or either party gives written notice to the other party to terminate the agreement at the end of the then-current Subscription Period, that notice to be given no later than 30 days before the expiration of the then-current Subscription Period.
