The parties agree, unless required by law (in which case the party being required to disclose by law provides notice thereof to the other party, together with the statutory or regulatory provision, or court order, on which such disclosure is based, as soon as practicable prior to such disclosure so that the other party has the opportunity to obtain a protective order or take other protective measures as it may deem necessary with respect to such information), not to make each other's Confidential Information available in any form to any third party for any purpose other than the integration of the Agreement. Each party agrees to take all reasonable steps to ensure that Confidential Information is not disclosed or distributed by its employees or agents in violation of the terms of the Agreement. The parties hereby consent to the disclosure of its Confidential Information to the employees, contractors or consultants of the other party as is reasonably necessary in order to allow the other party to perform its obligations under the Agreement and to obtain the benefits hereof, provided that each such employee, contractor or consultant who will have access to any Confidential Information has executed a non-disclosure agreement which prohibits the unauthorized use or disclosure of any such Confidential Information.

11.4 The parties agree that Partner’s Confidential Information may be disclosed by Deem-to-Deem Group Companies provided Deem uses its reasonable commercial endeavors to procure that such entities will not do anything which, if done by Deem, would be in breach of the Agreement.

11.5 It is understood and agreed that notwithstanding any other provisions of the Agreement, a breach by either Party of this Section 11 ("Confidentiality"), may cause either party irreparable damage for which recovery of money damages would be inadequate, and that, in addition to any and all remedies available at law, either party shall be entitled to seek timely injunctive relief to protect its rights under the Agreement.


Partner hereby agrees to defend and/or settle, at its own expense, and hold Deem and its Group Companies and its respective officers, directors, agents and employees ("Deem Indemnitees") harmless from and against any and all third-party claims and actions, and shall pay such damages, expenses, and liabilities, including, but not limited to, attorney fees and other expenses incident thereto that may be threatened against, or recoverable from, the Indemnitees arising out of (i) Partner's failure to include, in all materials respects, the required contractual terms set forth in Section 10 above in each Client Agreement, (ii) misrepresentation, representations inconsistent with the Agreement, negligence, errors or omissions on the part of a party or representatives of such party, which in all cases materially and adversely affect Deem; (iii) unauthorized use or misuse of Deem Services including, without limitation, making fraudulent bookings, or permitting fraudulent bookings by violating Subsection 2.4(b), to the extent known by Partner and uncured or (iv) Partner's violation of law, or breach of its confidentiality or data security obligations.

In the event that Partner is required to defend and/or settle any third party claim or action, such requirement shall be contingent upon Deem: (a) notifying Partner promptly in writing of any such claim or action, provided, however, that the failure of Deem to notify Partner shall not relieve Partner from any liability that it may have hereunder, except to the extent such failure actually materially prejudices Partner; (b) gives Partner sole control of the defense and settlement of such claim or action; and (c) gives Partner all reasonable assistance and cooperation in such defense at Partner’s expense.

Obligations under this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of these Terms and Conditions for any reason for a period of 12 months following the termination or expiration of the Agreement.
