A Party may terminate this Agreement or one or more of the Orders hereunder, if the other Party commits a material breach, and fails to remedy such breach within thirty (30) days of being notified by the non-breaching Party of such breach (“Cure Period”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Curricula may, in its sole and absolute discretion, immediately terminate this Agreement, or affected Order, or suspend Customer’s access to any Services in connection with any actual, alleged or suspected: (i) breach of confidentiality obligations and license or use restrictions set forth in this Agreement and applicable exhibit, (ii) direct or indirect technical or security issues or problems caused by or relating to Customer, or (iii) violations of applicable law and, in Curricula’s determination, such violation cannot be adequately cured within the Cure Period. If Curricula terminates this Agreement or any Order due to Customer’s material breach, Curricula will not refund any amounts to Customer. If Customer terminates Service for Curricula’s material breach, Customer will receive a refund for the remainder of the then-current term for such Software or Service; provided that Customer will not be entitled to any refund if Customer is also in breach of the Agreement at the time of such termination.

Curricula reserves the right to close any Curricula Account for any reason by giving thirty (30) days’ notice and by refunding any unused Fees on a pro rata basis.
D. Effect of Termination. Upon termination of an applicable Order for any reason, all access rights and licenses granted herein with respect to the affected Order will immediately terminate.

If the Curricula IP, Software or Subscription, or parts thereof, become, or in Curricula’s opinion may become, the subject of an infringement claim, Curricula may, at its option: (i) modify or replace such Curricula IP, Software or Subscription with a non-infringing, functional equivalent; (ii) obtain for Customer all necessary licenses and permissions to continue using the Curricula IP, Software or Subscription; or (iii) require that Customer cease to use the Curricula IP, Software or Subscription and with respect to Subscriptions and refund any pre-paid Fees for the unused remainder of the Subscription Term;
B. Exclusions to Curricula Indemnity. Curricula will have no indemnification obligations with respect to any action arising out of: (i) the use of any Curricula IP, Software or Subscription, or any part thereof, in combination with other software or products not authorized by Curricula; (ii) any modification of the Curricula IP, Software or Subscription not performed or expressly authorized by Curricula; (iii) Customer’s failure to substantially comply with Curricula’s reasonable written instructions which if implemented would have rendered the Curricula IP, Software or Subscription non-infringing, provided that a sufficient time period is given to Customer in order to implement such written instructions; or (iv) the use of the Curricula IP, Software or Services other than in accordance with this Agreement and applicable Documentation.
C. Customer Indemnity. Customer agrees to indemnify, defend and hold Curricula, its employees and agents harmless from any and all claims and/or demands, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, made by any third party arising out of or related to Customer’s alleged or actual use or misuse of the Curricula IP, Software and Subscriptions, including without limitation: (a) claims related to the unauthorized disclosure or exposure of personal data or other private information by Customer; (b) claims that the Customer Data infringes a third party right; (c) claims that use of a Subscription by Customer, including by Customer’s Authorized Users, harasses, defames, or defrauds a third party; or (d) claims arising from Customer’s use of the Software and Services in violation of this Agreement.
D. Indemnity Procedures. Each Party which seeks indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) will (i) notify the other Party (the “Indemnifying Party”) promptly after receiving notice of any threat or claim in writing of such actions set forth above, provided that if the Indemnified Party fails to notify the Indemnifying Party promptly of any threat or claim, the Indemnifying Party will be relieved of its obligation to indemnify the Indemnified Party to the extent the Indemnifying Party is prejudiced by the delay in notice; (ii) grant the Indemnifying Party sole control of the defense and any related settlement negotiations; provided no settlement may be agreed to without the Indemnified Party’s consent (which consent will not be unreasonably withheld); and (iii) reasonably cooperate, at the Indemnifying Party’s expense, with the Indemnifying Party in defense of such claim.
