b. Data Breach Indemnification by Medallia

Medallia will Indemnify Customer for third party claims arising from the improper access, use, or disclosure of personally identifiable Customer Data caused by: (i) Medallia’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement; or (ii) the willful misconduct or gross negligence of Medallia personnel or any third party under Medallia’s control (the “Data Indemnities”).

c. Indemnification by Customer

Customer shall Indemnify Medallia from third-party claims arising out of: (i) Customer’s or any of its employees and agents  use of Medallia Products in violation of the terms  of this Agreement; and (ii) alleged  infringement of a third-party patent, copyright, or trademark or misappropriation of a third-party trade secret arising out of (A) an unauthorized modification or alteration by Customer of Medallia Products; or (B) an unauthorized combination or use of Medallia Products with any product or process not provided or authorized by Medallia.

d. Indemnification Requirements and Procedure

The party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) will provide timely notice to the party from which it seeks indemnification (the “Indemnifying Party”)  (although untimely notice will relieve the Indemnifying Party of its indemnification obligations only commensurate with actual prejudice suffered as a result) and will provide reasonable assistance to Indemnifying Party at the Indemnifying Party’s  expense.  Except in relation to a claim, cause of action, investigation or enforcement activity (including any resulting fine) by a government agency under the Data Indemnities, the Indemnifying Party will have sole control over the defense, but the Indemnified Party will have the right to participate at its own cost.

The Indemnified Party shall take reasonable steps to mitigate the amount of any losses suffered as a result of an event that may give rise to a claim by the Indemnified Party against the Indemnifying Party.

The Indemnified Party will not admit liability, nor pay any amounts to third parties, without first obtaining the Indemnifying Party’s written consent (such consent to not be unreasonably withheld or delayed).

Where the Indemnified Party makes, or anticipates making, a claim relating to a claim, cause of action, investigation or enforcement activity (including any resulting fine) by a government agency, it must consult with the Indemnifying Party throughout such matter (including by way of provision of relevant documentation and correspondence) and have reasonable regard to any representations made by the Indemnifying Party to the government agency in respect of the matter and keep the Indemnifying Party informed as to the progression of the investigation or enforcement activity. This consultation must be made within sufficient time to enable the Indemnifying Party to respond before any final decision is made.
