6. Confidential Information. Each of TDS and Purchaser acknowledge that it will have access to certain confidential information of the other party concerning the other party’s business, plans, customers, technology, and products, and other information held in confidence by the other party (“Confidential Information”). Confidential Information will include all information in tangible or intangible form that is marked or designated as confidential or that, under the circumstances of its disclosure, should be considered confidential. Confidential Information will also include, but not be limited to, non-public information relating to the customers of either party, and the terms and conditions and existence of this Agreement. TDS and Purchaser each agree that it will not use in any way, for its own account or the account of any third party, except as expressly permitted by this Agreement, nor disclose to any third party any of the other party’s Confidential Information (except as required by law or to that party’s attorneys, accountants and other advisors (its “Representatives”) (subject to Section 1) as reasonably necessary to perform under this Agreement, provided that each party shall make all Representatives, and the case of Purchaser, all Authorized Users) aware of the provisions of this Agreement as applicable to such Representatives and Authorized User’s use of the Confidential Information of the other party. A breach of this Agreement by a party’s Representatives, and in the case of Purchaser, an Authorized User shall constitute a breach of this Agreement by such party. Further, each party shall take all reasonable precautions to protect the confidentiality of the other party’s Confidential Information, which precautions, in any event, will be at least as stringent as it takes to protect its own Confidential Information. Information will not be deemed Confidential Information hereunder if such information: (i) is known to the receiving party prior to receipt of it from the disclosing party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party; (ii) becomes known (independently of disclosure by the disclosing party) to the receiving party directly or indirectly from a source other than one having an obligation of confidentiality to the disclosing party; or (iii) becomes publicly known or otherwise ceases to be secret or confidential, except through a breach of this Agreement by the receiving party. The receiving party may disclose Confidential Information pursuant to the requirements of a governmental agency or by operation of law, provided that, unless restricted by order of a governmental agency or otherwise restricted by law, the receiving party provides reasonable notice to the other party of the required disclosure so as to permit the other party to respond to such request for disclosure. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Purchaser agrees that Purchaser Confidential Information collected manually by TDS and automatically by TransitionManager and/or the TDS Supplied Third-Party SaaS from Purchaser and/or Purchaser Supplier Software and Hardware and subsequently disclosure by TransitionManager and/or the TDS Supplied Third-Party SaaS to the Purchaser Supplied Software and Hardware, shall be permitted under this Section 6 and Purchaser shall look to the terms and conditions applicable to the Purchaser Supplied Software and Hardware, and not the Agreement, for a description of the use of such Purchaser Confidential Information by such Purchaser Supplied Software and Hardware.
7. Indemnification; Limitations.
7.1 Each of TDS and Purchaser (the “Indemnifying Party”) agree to defend, indemnify and hold the other party and its directors, officers, and employees (collectively, the “Indemnified Party”) harmless from and against any and all costs, liabilities, fees, losses, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Losses”) to the extent resulting from any claim, suit, action, or proceeding (each, an “Action“) brought by any third party against the Indemnified Party alleging; (i) any breach by the Indemnifying Party of any of its representations, warranties or covenants contained in this Agreement, and (ii) the infringement or misappropriation of any Intellectual Property Right relating to intellectual property of the Indemnifying Party which in the case of TDS, will include the Services, TransitionManager, the TDS Supplied Third-Party SaaS and the Purchaser-Owned Materials, and in the case of Purchaser will include the Purchaser Supplied Software and Hardware.

The obligations in subsection 7.1(ii) will not apply with respect to any Intellectual Property Right (i) not supplied by the Indemnifying Party, (ii) that is modified after delivery by the Indemnified Party, (iii) is combined with other products, processes or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (iv) where the Indemnified Party continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof and provided with a modification by the Indemnifying Party that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (v) in the case of Purchaser, where Purchaser’s use of the Services, the Licenses or the TDS Supplied Third-Party SaaS is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement.
7.3 EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN SECTION 4, NEITHER PARTY MAKES, AND EACH PARTY HEREBY SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS, ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE).

7.6 The parties acknowledge that TDS has set its prices and entered into this Agreement in reliance upon the limitations of liability and the disclaimers of warranties and damages set forth herein, and that the same form an essential basis of the bargain between the parties.
