With respect to the personal information that it receives from Licensee or Users, Faraday represents that it has and will independently comply with all obligations imposed by Applicable Data Privacy upon controllers, that it will not consider itself to be a joint controller with Licensee, and that it will not rely upon Licensee to perform any of Faraday’s obligations as a controller.
4.6. Suspension. If Faraday becomes aware of a User’s violation of this Agreement, then Faraday may specifically request that Licensee Suspend that User’s use of the Services. If Licensee fails to comply with our request to Suspend a User’s use of the Services, then Faraday may Suspend that User’s use of the Services. The duration of any Suspension by Faraday will be until the applicable User has cured the breach that caused the Suspension. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if there is a Disruption Event, then Faraday may automatically Suspend the offending use. The Suspension will be to the minimum extent and of the minimum duration required to prevent or terminate the Disruption Event. If Faraday Suspends a User’s use of the Services for any reason without prior notice to Licensee, then at your request, Faraday will provide Licensee with the reason for the Suspension as soon as is reasonably possible. Should Faraday, carry out any of these actions, the Licensee shall not be entitled to file any claim or complaint, even in the events that the suspension caused a loss of or any kind or damage to the information, data, associated software, business associations or any other damage whatsoever suffered by the Licensee or third parties.
4.7. Non-Faraday Applications and Materials.
4.7.1. Acquisition and Use of Non-Faraday Applications. Faraday or third parties may make available third-party products or services, including, for example, Non-Faraday Applications and implementation and other consulting services.

Faraday DOES NOT WARRANT OR SUPPORT NON-Faraday APPLICATIONS OR OTHER NON-Faraday PRODUCTS OR SERVICES, WHETHER OR NOT THEY ARE DESIGNATED BY Faraday. SUCH NON-Faraday APPLICATIONS ARE NOT UNDER THE CONTROL OF Faraday AND Faraday IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PRODUCT, SERVICES, WEBSITE, OR CONTENT OF ANY THIRD-PARTY PROVIDER. Non-Faraday Applications may be subject to additional terms and conditions between the provider of such Non-Faraday Application and Licensee, including terms related to the collection, use and processing of Personal Information. If Licensee elects to acquire or use a Non-Faraday Application, it is Licensee’s responsibility to review and understand these additional terms.
4.7.2. Non-Faraday Applications and Your Licensee Services Data. If Licensee installs or enables a Non-Faraday Application for use with a Service, Licensee grants Faraday permission to allow the provider of that Non-Faraday Application to access Licensee Services Data as required for the interoperation of that Non-Faraday Application with the Service. Faraday is not responsible or liable for any disclosure, modification or deletion of Licensee Services Data resulting from access by a Non-Faraday Application. Faraday is not responsible or liable to Licensee if you install, connect, enable, use or share any integration, feature, workflows, actions, or suggestions authored or made available by an entity other than Faraday.
4.7.3. Integration with Non-Faraday Applications. The Services may contain features designed to interoperate with Non-Faraday Applications.

Faraday may suspend or terminate your access to the Services in the event of non-payment of the applicable fees to Faraday by the Reseller due to your non-payment, or Licensee’s uncured breach of this Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, the agreement between Licensee and a Reseller: (i) shall not modify any of the terms set forth herein other than Sections those portions of Section 5 related to billing and payments, and (ii) is not binding on Faraday.

(a) If any amount owing by Licensee, under this or any other agreement for acquired Licenses, regardless the reason, is thirty (30) or more days overdue, or (b) if Licensee has not used the License acquired within two (2) months; Faraday may at its sole discretion, without limiting other rights and remedies:

5.8. Overdue Charges. If any undisputed invoiced amount is not received by Faraday thirty (30) days after the invoice date, then without limiting our rights or remedies (a) Faraday may condition future subscription renewals and Order Forms on payment terms shorter than those specified in Section 5.5 (Invoicing and Payment), and/or (b) Faraday may require Licensee to pay all reasonable collections or legal fees incurred by Faraday in order to collect payment of the corresponding undisputed invoiced amount, including, among others, attorneys' fees.
5.9. Taxes. Our fees do not include any taxes, levies, duties or similar governmental assessments of any nature, including, for example, value-added, sales, use or withholding taxes, assessable by any jurisdiction whatsoever (collectively, “Taxes”).

The Parties shall require any recipient of Proprietary Information to abide by the restrictions of this Agreement concerning the Proprietary Information before such Proprietary Information is disclosed to the recipient.
7.3. Protection of Confidential Information. The Receiving Party will (i) use the same degree of care that it uses to protect the confidentiality of its own confidential information of like kind (but not less than reasonable care), (ii) not use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party for any purpose outside the scope of this Agreement, and (ii) except as otherwise authorized by the Disclosing Party in writing, disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party only to those of its employees, officers, advisors, contractors, and agents and its Affiliates’ employees, officers, advisors, contractors, and agents who need that access for purposes consistent with this Agreement and who are subject to confidentiality obligations consistent with this Agreement. Receiving Party is fully responsible for the compliance of its employees, officers, advisors, contractors, and agents and its Affiliates’ employees, officers, advisors, contractors, and agents with the terms of this Section 7.
7.4. Compelled Disclosure. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party to the extent compelled by law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body to do so, provided the Receiving Party gives the Disclosing Party prior notice of the compelled disclosure (to the extent legally permitted) and reasonable assistance, at the Disclosing Party’s cost, if the Disclosing Party wishes to contest the disclosure. If the Receiving Party is compelled by law to disclose the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information as part of a civil proceeding to which the Disclosing Party is a party, and the Disclosing Party is not contesting the disclosure, the Disclosing Party will reimburse the Receiving Party for its reasonable cost of compiling and providing secure access to that Confidential Information.

9.0. MUTUAL INDEMNIFICATION
Mutual Indemnification. Each party shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless, and does hereby indemnify, defend and hold the other Party, and their respective employees, and successors in interest harmless (each of the foregoing being hereinafter referred to as an “Indemnified Party”, individually, and as the “Indemnified Parties”, collectively, and the counterparty referred to as “Indemnifying Party”) against any and all claims, suits, actions (including declaratory judgment actions brought by that Party’s Indemnitees or Indemnitee in response to a claim described herein), liabilities, losses, costs, reasonable attorneys’ fees, expenses, judgments or damages, whether ordinary, special or consequential, resulting from any claim made by a third party or suit brought against an Indemnified Party (other than liability solely attributable to the Indemnified Party) arising from (i) the gross negligence of the Indemnifying Party, its agents, employees, directors, officers or Authorized Resellers; (ii) any material breach of this Agreement, including any representation, warranty or covenant made herein; (iii) any claim brought against the Indemnified Party, by the Indemnifying Party´s agents, employees, directors, officers, or Authorized Resellers.
Intellectual Property. In addition to the indemnification provided in Section **.1 above, Faraday shall indemnify and hold the Client harmless from and against any and all claims resulting from the Services, or the Client Indemnified Party’s use of any part thereof, including without limitation, claims alleging that the Services, or Client Indemnified Party’s use of any part thereof, misappropriates or infringes a patent, copyright, trade secret, trademark, moral right, or other proprietary or intellectual property. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Faraday shall not be held liable in any way for the claims set forth in the previous paragraph when the damage made was caused solely by Client’s fraud, or negligence by any employee, director or officer of Client or its Affiliates. In any such cases, the owed indemnity shall not override Faraday’s right to bring the relevant legal actions to seek relief for the damages suffered by Faraday or by third parties on account of those acts.
Indemnification Process. If any third party makes a claim covered by the “Mutual indemnification” or “Intellectual Property” Sections above against an Indemnified Party with respect to which such Indemnified Party intends to seek indemnification under this Article, the Indemnified Party shall give notice of such claim to the Indemnifying Party including a comprehensive description of the claim, with all the relevant supporting documentation, and the amount sought, if known, together with the breakdown of the balance of the claim in question. Failure to give such notice shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations hereunder except with regard to the damages or further damages that result from delays or irregularities in such notice. Upon giving such notice, the notified Party shall be bound to defend such Indemnified Party against such claim, and the notified Party shall be entitled to assume the control of the defense of the claim with a legal counsel designated by the Indemnifying Party, and reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party. The Indemnified Party shall, to a commercially reasonable extent, cooperate fully with and assist the Indemnifying Party in its defense against such claim in all reasonable respects, at the Indemnifying Party’s request. The Indemnifying Party shall take commercially reasonable steps to keep the Indemnified Party fully apprised at all times as to the status of the defense. The Indemnified Party shall have the right, at its own expense, to employ separate counsel in any such action, but the role of such counsel shall only be supportive of the Indemnifying Party’s counsel. Neither Party shall be liable for any settlement of action or claim effected without its consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld. Until both (a) the Indemnified Party receives written notice from the Indemnifying Party that it will defend such claim, and (b) the Indemnifying Party assumes such defense, the Indemnified Party may, at any time after thirty (30) business days from the date notice of claim is given to the Indemnifying Party by the Indemnified Party, resist or otherwise defend the claim or, after notice to the Indemnifying Party, settle or otherwise compromise or pay the claim. In this latter case, the Indemnified Party shall take all commercially reasonable steps to keep the Indemnifying Party fully apprised at all times as to the status of the defense; and the Indemnifying Party shall pay all costs of indemnity arising out of or relating to that defense and any such settlement, compromise, or payment; provided that such proceeding is proportional and reasonable in relation to the alleged claim. Otherwise, and at all times, the Indemnified Party shall bear the costs and other items arising from its acts.
9.3. Exclusive Remedy. At the Faraday sole discretion, if the Licensee use of the Software is enjoined or if Faraday reasonably believes an injunction is likely to be issued, or if the Licensee believes in good faith that the Software is likely to be determined to be an infringement or misappropriation of a patent, copyright, trade secret, trademark, moral right, or other proprietary or intellectual property right, Faraday may, at the Licensee’s expense, in the following mandatory order: (i) replace the Software with compatible, functionally equivalent and non-infringing software; or (ii) modify the Software to make it non-infringing; provided, however, that no such replacement or modification shall substantially impair the functionality or performance of the Software.
