Except as described in this Agreement and save as provided in Infringement Idemnification, Limitation of Liability, and Open Source Code below, the Product is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis without warranty, express or implied, of any kind or nature, including, but not limited to, any warranties of performance or merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, including without limitation that QuirkTools does not warranty that the Product will be error-free, complete, or correct.

QuirkTools will defend, indemnify, hold Licensee and its directors, officers, employees and other agents (collectively, “Licensee Indemnitees”) harmless, at QuirkTools’ sole cost and expense, any action brought against any Licensee Indemnitee based upon the claim that the Product, if used within the scope of the License granted under this Agreement, infringes, violates, or misappropriates the Agreement, or a QuirkTools patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, or other intellectual property or proprietary right (“IP Claim”); provided, however, that: (1) Licensee shall notify QuirkTools promptly in writing of any such IP Claim; (2) Licensee shall not enter into any settlement or compromise on any IP Claim without QuirkTools’ prior written consent; (3) QuirkTools shall have sole control of any such action and settlement negotiations so long as there is no detriment or liability to Licensee; and (4) Licensee shall provide QuirkTools with reasonable information and assistance, at QuirkTools’ request and sole cost and expense, necessary to settle, defend, indemnify or hold harmless such IP Claim. QuirkTools agrees to pay all damages and costs incurred Licensee attributable to such IP Claim. The foregoing states the sole liability of QuirkTools and the exclusive remedy of Licensee for any infringement of intellectual property rights by the Product or any other items provided by QuirkTools hereunder.
If the Product becomes, or in the opinion of QuirkTools may become, the subject of a claim of infringement of any third party right, QuirkTools may, at its option and in its discretion promptly: (1) procure for Licensee the right to use the Product free of any liability; (2) replace or modify the Product to make it noninfringing; or (3) refund any License Fees related to this Product paid by Licensee.
Exclusions from Defense Obligation. QuirkTools will have no duty to defend any IP Claim to the extent such IP Claim is based on: (1) use of a superseded release of the Product, if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of a current release of the Product and QuirkTools timely notified Licensee of the availability of the non-infringing Product at no additional cost; (2) the combination, operation, or use of the Product with programs or data not furnished by QuirkTools or at QuirkTools’ direction, or with hardware or operating system software other than the hardware platform and operating system with which the Product is designed to function, if such infringement would have been avoided by the use of the Product without such programs, data, hardware or operating systems; (3) modification or attempted modification of the Product by anyone except QuirkTools or at QuirkTools’ direction, or use or distributions of such modifications; or (4) Licensee’s use of the Product in a manner that results in defamation, violates the privacy rights of individuals, transmits material in violation of any applicable law, rule, regulation, or uses any proprietary thirty party content without legally binding consent of such third party.
To the extent an IP Claim is excluded from QuirkTools’ defense obligation, is based upon the claim that any modifications to the Product or combination of the Product with products, not provided by QuirkTools or at QuirkTools’ direction, infringes or violates any third party, Licensee will defend or settle, at its expense, any action brought against QuirkTools provided, however, that: (1) QuirkTools shall notify Licensee promptly in writing of any such claim; (2) QuirkTools shall not enter into any settlement or compromise any such claim without Licensee’s prior written consent; (3) Licensee shall have sole control of any such action and settlement negotiations; and (4) QuirkTools shall provide Licensee with information and assistance, at Licensee’s request and expense, necessary to settle or defend such claim. Licensee agrees to pay all damages and costs finally awarded against QuirkTools attributable to such claim. QuirkTools may elect to assume control of the defense and settlement of any such claim with counsel of its choosing; provided however, that if Licensee will not have breached its defense and settlement obligations hereunder, Licensee will have no obligation to pay the costs and expenses of such QuirkTools-controlled defense or settlement. The foregoing states the sole liability of Licensee and the exclusive remedy of QuirkTools for any infringement of intellectual property rights by the Licensee modifications or combinations or any other items provided by Licensee hereunder.
Notwithstanding Infringement Idemnification above, QuirkTools assumes no liability hereunder for, and shall have no obligation to defend Licensee or to pay costs, damages or attorney’s fees for, any claim based upon any modifications to any of the Product not approved by QuirkTools or at QuirkTools’ direction or combination of any of the Product with products not approved by QuirkTools or at QuirkTools’ direction.
