21.1.2 INFRAGISTICS represents and warrants that for a period of ninety (90) days from delivery and installation of the Software (the “Warranty Period”), the Software will perform substantially in accordance with the Documentation. As CUSTOMER’s sole and exclusive remedy, and INFRAGISTICS' entire liability for any breach of the foregoing warranty, INFRAGISTICS will in its sole discretion upon prompt receipt of notice from CUSTOMER to INFRAGISTICS regarding such failure during the Warranty Period, make commercially reasonable efforts to correct, repair or replace the defective components or modules of the Software to conform to this warranty at no additional charge to CUSTOMER.

IN ADDITION, INFRAGISTICS DOES NOT REPRESENT THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL BE ERROR FREE OR OPERATE UNINTERRUPTED.
22.1 By INFRAGISTICS.
22.1.1 INFRAGISTICS will defend, indemnify and hold harmless CUSTOMER and its officers, directors, employees and agents against any and all judgments, liabilities, costs, losses, damages or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, "Damages"), arising from any claims, demands, actions, or proceedings of third parties that CUSTOMER's use of the Licensed Materials, in the form provided by INFRAGISTICS, and in accordance with the terms of this AGREEMENT, infringes any U.S. patent, trademark, copyright and/or trade secret of any third party (a "Claim"). INFRAGISTICS will have no obligation hereunder for any Claim based on (i) the use of a superseded or altered release of the Software if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of a current, unaltered release of the Software, which release was made available by INFRAGISTICS to CUSTOMER at no additional cost sufficiently in advance of such claimed infringement to have permitted the timely substitution thereof for the prior version, (ii) the combination or use of the Software with software, hardware or other materials not furnished by INFRAGISTICS, if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of Software alone, (iii) from CUSTOMER’s modification of the Software after delivery by INFRAGISTICS by anyone other than INFRAGISTICS or its subcontractors, or (iv) the use of the Software other than as permitted under this AGREEMENT.
22.1.2 If such a Claim is made or appears possible, INFRAGISTICS may, at its option: (i) secure for CUSTOMER, at no additional cost, the right to continue to use the Software, (ii) modify the infringing portion of the Software to make it non-infringing but still functionally equivalent; or (iii) replace the Software with a non-infringing product. If none of the forgoing alternatives may be implemented despite INFRAGISTICS commercially reasonable efforts, INFRAGISTICS shall be entitled to terminate this AGREEMENT, and in such event INFRAGISTICS shall refund to CUSTOMER the depreciated value of the license fees paid under this AGREEMENT for such infringing Software as depreciated on a straight line basis over a period of three years commencing on the date of this AGREEMENT.
22.2 By CUSTOMER. CUSTOMER will defend, indemnify and hold harmless INFRAGISTICS and its officers, directors, employees and agents against any and all Damages that arise or result from the use or distribution of the CUSTOMER's products, other than as a result of the products' inclusion of any PLF or Redistributables if such PLF or Redistributables have been provided by INFRAGISTICS.
22.3 Procedure. An indemnified party ("Indemnitee") shall provide the other party ("Indemnitor") prompt written notice of any claim, action or demand for which indemnity is claimed; provided that the failure to notify Indemnitor shall not relieve Indemnitor from any obligation or liability which it may have pursuant to this AGREEMENT except to the extent that such omission actually prejudices Indemnitor's rights. In case any such action, proceeding or investigation is brought against Indemnitee, Indemnitor will be entitled to control and assume the defense thereof with counsel of its choice. If Indemnitee desires to participate in any such defense assumed by Indemnitor, it may do so at its own expense. Indemnitor shall be liable for the fees and expenses of counsel employed by Indemnitee for any period during which Indemnitor has not assumed the defense thereof (other than during any period in which Indemnitee shall have failed to give notice of the claim as provided above). If Indemnitor assumes such defense, Indemnitee shall have the right to participate in the defense thereof and to employ counsel, at its own expense, separate from the counsel employed by Indemnitor, it being understood that Indemnitor shall control such defense; provided, that Indemnitor's right to control the defense is subject to it actively and diligently conducting such defense and provided that no rights of Indemnitee may be compromised by Indemnitor without Indemnitee’s prior written consent. If Indemnitor chooses to defend a claim pursuant hereto, Indemnitee shall cooperate in the defense thereof, which cooperation shall include the retention and provision to Indemnitor of records and information which are reasonably relevant to such claim, and making employees available on a mutually convenient basis to provide additional information and explanation of any materials provided hereunder. So long as Indemnitor has assumed and is conducting the defense of the claim in accordance with the foregoing, Indemnitee shall not consent to the entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement with respect to the claim without the prior written consent of Indemnitor (such consent not to be unreasonably withheld).
23. Limitation of Liabilities.
23.1 EXCEPT WITH RESPECT TO ANY BREACH OF THE CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS OF SECTION 24, NEITHER PARTY SHALL BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF BUSINESS PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER PECUNIARY LOSS) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE, AND/OR ANY USE OR FAILURE OF THE SOFTWARE (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY ERRONEOUS REPORTS OR DATA BEING ISSUED ON THE SOFTWARE), EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
23.2 NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING IN THIS AGREEMENT TO THE CONTRARY, THE PARTIES AGREE THAT INFRAGISTICS’ AGGREGATE LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES UNDER THIS AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXCEED, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, THE AMOUNT OF LICENSE FEES PAID BY CUSTOMER. THE LIMITATION ON LIABILITY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 23.2 SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE INDEMNITY SET FORTH IN SECTION 22.
24.1 Subject to this Section 4, each party shall maintain in confidence all Confidential Information (as defined herein) of the other party and shall not use, copy or disclose any such Confidential Information without the other party's prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party may disclose Confidential Information to its directors, officers, and employees (collectively “Representatives”) who need such information in order to assist or advise such party in the performance of its obligations hereunder. Each party shall promptly notify the other party if it discovers any unauthorized use, copying or disclosure of the other party’s Confidential Information.
24.2 For the purposes of this AGREEMENT, “Confidential Information” shall mean any and all business and technical information of a party disclosed to, or otherwise acquired or observed by, the other party, whether communicated in writing, orally, electronically or in any other form, except Confidential Information does not include any information which (i) becomes generally available to the public through no fault of the receiving party, (ii) was independently developed by the receiving party without access to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information or (iii) becomes available to the receiving party on a non-confidential basis from a source other than the disclosing party; provided that such source is not prohibited from transferring the information to the receiving party by a contractual, legal or fiduciary obligation. In addition, INFRAGISTICS Confidential Information shall include the Licensed Materials and any Improvements.
24.3 In the event that a party (including its Representatives) is requested in accordance with applicable law to disclose the other party’s Confidential Information, the receiving party agrees to provide the disclosing party with prompt notice of such request so that the disclosing party will have an opportunity to limit or preclude such disclosure. The receiving party agrees to cooperate with the disclosing party, at the disclosing party’s expense, in any lawful effort to contest the requirement of such disclosure. In the event that a protective order or other remedy is not obtained, the receiving party may furnish only that portion of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information which such party is legally compelled to disclose and will exercise its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain reliable assurance that confidential treatment will be accorded any Confidential Information so furnished.
24.4 Upon termination of this AGREEMENT, the parties agree that within thirty (30) days of the termination of this AGREEMENT, each party shall return or certify in writing the destruction of all documents and electronic media containing the other party’s Confidential Information, including all copies.
