In this Section 9, the following definitions apply:
“Indemnitee” means a Party and its Affiliates, and their respective directors, employees, employees, agents, consultants, advisors, and other representatives.
“Indemnitor” means the Party providing the indemnity under this Agreement to the other Party.
9.1 Hopin Indemnification. Hopin will indemnify Partner Indemnitees against all liabilities, losses, damages, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of attorneys and consultants and court costs) arising out of a judicial, administrative, arbitration action, suit, claim, investigation, or proceeding, brought by a third party against Partner Indemnitees, alleging that Partner’s use of the Hopin API, Hopin SDK, or Hopin Marks in compliance with the Agreement, infringe or misappropriate a third party’s IP Rights.
9.2 Partner Indemnification. Partner will indemnify Hopin Indemnitees against all, liabilities, losses, damages, costs or expenses (including, without limitation, reasonable fees and expenses of attorneys and consultants and court costs), arising out of a judicial, administrative, arbitration action, suit, claim, investigation, or proceeding, brought by a third party against Hopin alleging that Hopin’s use of the Partner API or Partner Marks in compliance with the Agreement, infringe or misappropriate a third party’s IP Rights.
9.3 Procedure. The indemnity obligations in the Agreement do not apply unless: (a) Indemnitee promptly notifies the Indemnitor of the threat or notice of a claim subject to Sections 9.1 and 9.2 of these Global Terms; (b) Indemnitor has the sole and exclusive control and authority to select defense attorneys, and defend or settle any such claim; provided that Indemnitor shall not settle or compromise any claim that results in liability or admission of any liability by Indemnitee without its prior written consent; and (c) Indemnitee cooperates with Indemnitor. An Indemnitee is entitled to participate in the defense of a claim at its own expense.

If both Parties are negligent or otherwise at fault or strictly liable without fault, then the Indemnitor shall indemnify Indemnitee only for the percentage of responsibility for the damage or injuries attributable to Indemnitor.
10. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
10.1 DAMAGES EXCLUDED. Neither Party nor their respective Affiliates will be liable to the other under this Agreement, under any legal theory (whether in contract, tort, negligence or otherwise) for any incidental, consequential, indirect, special, exemplary, or punitive loss or damages; or for lost profits, lost sales or business, lost data (through no fault of such Party), business interruption, loss of goodwill, costs of cover or replacement, whether or not such Party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
10.2 MONETARY CAP. Each Party’s aggregate liability to the other Party, shall not exceed the greater of $10,000 or the Referral Fees paid to the other Party under this Agreement.

10.3 EXCLUSIONS. Notwithstanding Section 10.2, nothing in this Agreement excludes or limits the liability for (a) death or personal injury caused by a Party’s acts or omissions; (b) a Party’s gross negligence, fraud, fraudulent misrepresentations, or intentional misconduct; (c) violation of Law, or (d) either Party’s indemnification obligations in Section 9.
10.4 Risk Allocation. The Sections on limitation of liability, disclaimer of warranties, and warranties allocate the risks of the Agreement between the Parties. This allocation is reflected in the pricing of the Services and is an essential element of the basis of the bargain between the Parties. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of implied warranties or limitation of liability for incidental or consequential damages or personal injury or death, so some of the above limitations may not apply to Partner. In these jurisdictions, such Party’s liability will be limited to the greatest extent permitted by Law.
11.1 Compliance with Laws. Each Party agrees to abide by all Laws to the extent applicable to its performance or exercise of its rights under this Agreement.

Each Party represents that it has not received or been offered any illegal or improper bribe, kickback, payment, gift, or thing of value from any employees or agents of the other Party in connection with this Agreement. If a Party learns of any violation of the above restriction, it will use reasonable efforts to promptly notify the other Party.
11.3 Economic Sanctions and Export Controls. Each Party agrees that it will not act, and will not permit any other party to act, in a manner that violates economic sanctions or export control laws or regulations of the United Kingdom, the United States or any other jurisdiction, and each Party agrees that it is solely responsible for compliance with all such laws and regulations. Each Party represents that it: (a) is not organized under the laws of, ordinarily resident in, or located in, a country or territory that is the target of economic sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of the Treasury or Her Majesty’s Treasury; (b) is not, and is not owned 50% or more, individually or in the aggregate by persons, identified on the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List or Foreign Sanctions Evaders List; (c) is not, and is not owned 50% or more or controlled, individually or in the aggregate by persons, identified on the Consolidated List of Financial Sanctions Targets in the UK administered by Her Majesty’s Treasury; and (d) is not a person identified on the U.S. Department of Commerce Denied Persons List, Entity List, or Unverified List, or U.S. Department of State proliferation-related lists. This section applies except to the extent it would cause any person, including Hopin and Partner, to contravene, where applicable, the EU’s Blocking Regulation or the UK’s Protection of Trading Interests Legislation.
11.4 Assignment. Neither Party may assign any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party, except that either Party may assign its rights and obligations under this Agreement to an Affiliate or in connection with any merger (by operation of law or otherwise), consolidation, reorganization, change in control or sale of all or substantially all of its assets related to this Agreement or similar transaction, with notice to the other Party; and provided that if such proposed assignment is to a competitor of Hopin, Hopin may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days prior notice to Partner. This Agreement inures to the benefit of and is binding on the Parties’ permitted assignees, transferees, and successors.
11.5 Integration. The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement and supersedes any prior agreements between Partner and Hopin regarding the subject matter hereof.

11.6 Amendment. No supplement, modification, or amendment of this Agreement shall be binding, unless executed in writing by a duly authorized representative of each Party to this Agreement.
11.7 Waiver. Either Party’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of that provision or any other provision of this Agreement.
11.8 Severability. If a provision in this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provision shall be modified by the court and interpreted to best accomplish the original provision to the fullest extent permitted by law, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in effect.
11.9 Independent Contractors. This Agreement does not create a partnership, franchise, joint venture, agency, fiduciary, or employment relationship between the Parties.
