Services acquired for trial purposes are provided “as is” and PCT does not offer any warranties for such services.
a. If a third party makes a claim against either you or PCT (hereinafter “Recipient” and which may refer to you or PCT depending upon which party received the Material (defined below)), that any information, design, specification, instruction, software, service, data, or material (“Material”) furnished by either you or PCT (hereinafter “Provider” and which may refer to you or PCT depending on which party provided the Material), and used by the Recipient infringes its intellectual property rights, the Provider, at its sole cost and expense, will defend the Recipient against the claim and indemnify the Recipient from the damages, liabilities, costs and expenses awarded by the court to the third party claiming infringement or the settlement agreed to by the Provider, if the Recipient does the following:
(i) notifies the Provider promptly in writing, not later than 30 days after the Recipient receives notice of the claim (or sooner if required by applicable law);
(ii) gives the Provider sole control of the defense and any settlement negotiations; and
(iii) gives the Provider the information, authority, and assistance, the Provider needs to defend against or settle the claim.
b. If the Provider believes or it is determined that any of the Material may have violated a third party’s intellectual property rights, the Provider may choose to either modify the Material to be non-infringing (while substantially preserving its utility or functionality) or obtain a license to allow for continued use. If these alternatives are not commercially reasonable, the Provider may end the license for, and require return of, the applicable Material and refund any unused, prepaid fees the Recipient may have paid to the other party for such Material (if applicable). If such return materially affects PCT’s ability to meet its obligations under the relevant order, then PCT may, at its option and upon 30 days prior written notice, terminate the Order. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient if the Recipient alters the Material or uses it outside the scope of use identified in the Provider’s user documentation or services policies or if the Recipient uses a version of the Materials which has been superseded, if the infringement claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current version of the Material which was provided to the Recipient. The Provider will not indemnify the Recipient to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon (i) any information, design, specification, instruction, software, data, or material not furnished by the Provider, or (ii) any Material from a third party portal or other external source that is accessible to you within or from the Service (e.g., a third party Web page accessed via a hyperlink). PCT will not indemnify you to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon the combination of any Material with any products or services not provided by PCT. PCT will not indemnify you for infringement caused by your actions against any third party if the Services as delivered to you and used in accordance with the terms of this Agreement would not otherwise infringe any third party intellectual property rights. PCT will not indemnify you for any infringement claim that is based on: (1) a patent that you were made aware of prior to the effective date of this Agreement (pursuant to a claim, demand, or notice); or (2) your actions prior to the effective date of this Agreement. This section provides the parties’ exclusive remedy for any infringement claims or damages.

The term of the Services and any renewal years are collectively defined as the “Services Term.” At the end of the Services Term, all rights to access or use the Services shall end.
b. If either you or PCT breaches a material term of this Agreement and fails to correct the breach within 30 days of written specification of the breach, then the breaching party is in default and the non-breaching party may terminate the applicable Order under which the breach occurred. If PCT terminates the Order as specified in the preceding sentence, then within 30 days you must pay all amounts which have accrued prior to such termination, as well as all sums remaining unpaid for the Services ordered under this Agreement plus related taxes and expenses. If PCT ends the Services under the Indemnification section 6 above, you must pay within 30 days all amounts remaining unpaid for Services plus related taxes and expenses. The nonbreaching party may agree in its sole discretion to extend the 30 day period for so long as the breaching party continues reasonable efforts to cure the breach.
