  1. If Provider does not meet the Target Uptime specified above, Customer will be entitled, upon written request, to a service level credit (“Service Level Credit”) to be calculated, as follows: (i) if the Target Uptime is at least 99.99% of the month’s minutes, no Service Level Credits are provided; (ii) if Target Uptime is 99.75% to 99.99% (inclusive) of the month’s minutes, Customer will be eligible for a credit in an amount equal to 5% of Customer’s Average Monthly License Fees; or (iii) if Target Uptime is 99.50% to 99.74% (inclusive) of the month’s minutes, Customer will be eligible for a credit in an amount equal to 7.5% of the Customer’s Average Monthly License Fees; or (iv) if Target Uptime is less than 99.50% of the month’s minutes, Customer will be eligible for a credit in an amount equal to 10.0% of the Customer’s Average Monthly License Fees. A Customer’s “Average Monthly License Fees” will be equal to the aggregate License Fees actually paid by the Customer to Provider during the twelve months preceding the calculation divided by twelve; provided, that if the Customer has not paid License Fees for a period of twelve months prior to the date of calculation then the Provider shall calculate the Average Monthly Fees on any reasonable basis. Including the average of License Fees actually paid over the number of months preceding the calculation during which the Customer paid License Fees.

Provider shall defend (or at its option settle) any third-party claim, suit or action against Customer alleging that the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App infringe any Intellectual Property Rights of such third party (each, an “Infringement Claim”) and indemnify Customer from the resulting costs and damages finally awarded against Customer to that third party by a court of competent jurisdiction or agreed to in settlement by Provider. Customer shall (a) promptly provide Provider with notice of any Infringement Claim within a reasonable period of time after learning of it; (b) allow Provider sole control over the claim’s defense and settlement; and (c) reasonably cooperate in response to Provider’s requests for assistance. Customer may not settle or compromise any Infringement Claim without Provider’s prior written consent.  If the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App is or are, or in Provider’s opinion likely to become, the subject of an Infringement Claim, then Provider may (i) procure for Customer, at no cost to Customer, the right to continue using the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App, (ii) replace or modify the infringing the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App to make it non-infringing, at no cost to Customer, or (iii) if the right to continue using the infringing the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App cannot be procured for Customer for a reasonable cost, or cannot reasonably be modified to make it non-infringing, terminate this Agreement, and refund to Customer any prepaid Fees.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Provider will have no obligation under this Section 16.3 or otherwise with respect to any Infringement Claim based upon:  (1) any use of the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App in a manner not in accordance with the Agreement or the applicable Documentation; (2) any use of the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App in combination with products, equipment, or software not supplied by Provider if such infringement would have been avoided without the combination with such other products, equipment, or software; or (3) any modification of the Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App by any person other than Provider or its authorized agents or subcontractors; or (4) any Services, Hosted Services, or Mobile App provided on a no charge, beta, trial or evaluation basis.  Provider’s obligations under this Section 16.3 are Provider’s sole obligations and Customer’s exclusive remedy for any Infringement Claim.
