14.1 By DoubleDutch. DoubleDutch will defend at its own expense any action against You brought by a third party to the extent that the action is based upon any claim that the Apps (excluding any Content, Marks, or any End User Data incorporated therein) infringe any U.S. copyrights or misappropriates any trade secrets recognized as such under the Uniform Trade Secret law and will pay those costs and damages finally awarded against You in any such action that are specifically attributable to such claim or those costs and damages agreed to in a monetary settlement of such action. Notwithstanding the foregoing, DoubleDutch will have no obligation with respect to an infringement claim based upon (i) any use of the Apps (or any of its components) not in accordance with this Agreement, (ii) any use of the Apps (or any of its components) in combination with other products, equipment, software or data not supplied by DoubleDutch, or (iii) any modification of the Apps (or any of its components) by any person other than DoubleDutch and its authorized representatives (collectively, “Excluded Claims”). If any App becomes, or in DoubleDutch’s opinion is likely to become, the subject of an infringement claim, DoubleDutch may at its option, (a) procure for You the right to continue using the App, (b) replace or modify the infringing component(s) of the App so that it becomes non-infringing, or (c) terminate this Agreement and refund any fees actually paid by You to DoubleDutch as advance payment for delivery of Services for the remainder of the Order term then in effect. This Section 14.1 states Your sole and exclusive remedy and DoubleDutch’s entire liability for infringement claims and actions.
14.2 Procedure. The foregoing obligations of the indemnifying party are conditioned upon the indemnitee promptly notifying the indemnifying party in writing of the action, claim or issue giving rise to the indemnification obligations hereunder, the indemnitee giving the indemnifying party sole control of the defense thereof (unless otherwise reserved herein) and any related settlement negotiations, and the indemnitee cooperating and, at indemnifying party’s expense, assisting in such defense.

Either party may change its address for notice by providing the other party at least ten (10) days’ prior written notice of the changed address. Invoices shall not be considered late or unsent should You change your address or failed to provide correct contact information.
15.2 Relationship of the Parties. The parties are independent contracting parties to this Agreement. This Agreement does not create a relationship of agency, partnership, joint venture or licensee. Neither party is the legal representative, joint venturer, or partner to the other party for any purpose. Neither party has authority to bind the other party to any third party or otherwise to act in any way as the other party’s representative or agent, except as this Agreement provides or the parties expressly agree in writing.
15.3 Legal Costs and Expenses. In the event either party must retain an attorney to enforce this Agreement or to file or defend any action arising out of this Agreement, the prevailing party in the action is entitled, in addition to any other remedies available to it, to recover from the other party its reasonable fees for lawyers and expert witnesses, plus court costs and expenses as a court of competent jurisdiction may fix. The term “prevailing party” for the purposes of this Section includes a defendant who has by motion, judgment, verdict, or dismissal by the court, successfully defended against any claim that has been asserted against it.
15.4 Waiver. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right, power or remedy under this Agreement operates as a waiver of any right, power or remedy. No waiver of any provision of this Agreement is effective unless in writing and signed by the party against whom the waiver would be enforced. Any waiver by either party of any provision of this Agreement is not a waiver of any other provision of this Agreement, nor does any waiver operate as a waiver of the relevant provision respecting any future event or circumstance.
15.5 Modifications and Amendments. Revisions, modifications, and/or amendments to any portion of these mutually agreed upon Terms must be made in a writing and agreed upon in writing to be effective. You are responsible for providing us with Your most current e-mail address. In the event that the last e-mail address that You have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to You the notice described above, you will notify DoubleDutch immediately. Continued use of the Services following mutually agreed to changes shall indicate Your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.

15.7 Severability. If a court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, that provision will be enforced to the extent possible consistent with the parties’ stated intention or, if incapable of enforcement, will be deemed to be deleted from this Agreement while the remainder of this Agreement will continue in full force.
15.8 Entire Agreement. This Agreement, together with the applicable Order, constitutes the parties’ entire agreement. This Agreement supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings or communications between the parties, whether oral or written, with respect to its subject matter; provided, however, that any nondisclosure agreement in effect between the parties will remain in full force. You are not relying upon any statement, representation or warranty, whether negligently or innocently made, of any person that is contrary to this Agreement.
15.9 Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in two (2) or more counterparts, each of which will be deemed an original, and all of which together constitute one and the same instrument.
15.10 Remedies. You acknowledge that the Apps contain valuable trade secrets and proprietary information of DoubleDutch, that any actual or threatened breach of Sections 10 or 11 shall constitute immediate, irreparable harm to DoubleDutch for which monetary damages alone would be an inadequate remedy, and as such, DoubleDutch shall be entitled to immediate injunctive relief without the requirement of posting a bond.
15.11 Assignment. Neither party may assign or transfer, by operation of law or otherwise, this Agreement, in whole or in part, without first obtaining the other party’s prior written consent, which may be unreasonably withheld; provided, however, either party may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, without obtaining the consent of the other party, to the assigning party’s Affiliates and/or in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of the assigning party’s assets. Any attempted assignment or transfer in violation of the foregoing will be void.
15.12 Force Majeure. Any delay in the performance or duties of either party will not be considered a breach of this Agreement if such delay is caused by a labor dispute, shortage of materials, fire, earthquake, flood, or any other event beyond the reasonable control of such party; provided, that such party uses reasonable efforts, under the circumstances, to notify the other party of the cause of such delay and to resume performance as soon as possible.
15.13 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding that body of law related to choice of laws, and of the United States of America.
