(3)Limitations on Indemnification.
(a)The Vendor shall not be obligated to indemnify the Purchaser to the extent the cumulative amount of Losses under Section 9(1) exceeds an aggregate ceiling equal to the Purchase Price that has been actually received by the Vendor; provided, that, the foregoing limitation in this Section 9(3)(a) shall not apply to, and there shall be no limitation upon, any Losses arising as a result of intentional fraud or willful misconduct on the part of the Vendor.
(b)The Purchaser shall not be obligated to indemnify the Vendor to the extent the cumulative amount of Losses under Section 9(2) exceeds an aggregate ceiling equal to the Purchase Price; provided, that, the foregoing limitation in this Section 9(3)(b) shall not apply to, and there shall be no limitation upon, any Losses arising as a result of intentional fraud or willful misconduct on the part of the Purchaser.
(4)The Party entitled to indemnity under Section 9(1) or Section 9(2) (the "Indemnified Person") shall promptly give written notice to the Party obligated to indemnify under such section (the "Indemnifying Person") of any claim for indemnification pursuant to this Section 9 (a "Claim", which term shall include more than one Claim). Such notice shall specify whether the Claim arises as a result of a claim by a person against the Indemnified Person (a "Third Party Claim") or whether the Claim does not so arise (a "Direct Claim"), and shall also specify with reasonable particularity (to the extent that the information is available):

For the purpose of such investigation, the Indemnified Person shall make available to the Indemnifying Person the information relied upon by the Indemnified Person to substantiate such Claim. If the Indemnified Person and the Indemnifying Person agree at or prior to the expiration of such 30-day period (or any mutually agreed upon extension thereof) to the validity and amount of such Claim, the Indemnifying Person shall immediately pay to the Indemnified Person the full agreed upon amount of the Claim.

The fact that a Direct Claim is not disputed by the Indemnifying Person shall not constitute an admission or create any inference that the asserted Direct Claim is valid for any purpose or that the Indemnifying Person has any indemnity obligation with respect to such Direct Claim under this Section 9.
(6)With respect to any Third-Party Claim, the Indemnifying Person shall have the right, at its own expense, to participate in or assume control of the negotiation, settlement or defence of such Third-Party Claim and, in such event, the Indemnifying Person shall reimburse the Indemnified Person for all the Indemnified Person's out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of such participation or assumption.

If the Indemnifying Person, having elected in writing to assume such control, thereafter fails to vigorously defend any such Third-Party Claim within a reasonable time, the Indemnified Person shall be entitled to assume such control and negotiate and settle such Third-Party Claim without the participation or consent of the Indemnifying Person.
(7)The obligations of the Indemnifying Person to indemnify the Indemnified Person in respect of Claims shall also be subject to the following:
(a)if any Third-Party Claim is of a nature such that the Indemnified Person is required by applicable law to make a payment to any person (a "Third Party") with respect to such Third-Party Claim before the completion of settlement negotiations or related legal proceedings, the Indemnified Person may make such payment and thereafter seek reimbursement from the Indemnifying Person for any such payment. If the Indemnifying Person pays, or reimburses the Indemnified Person in respect of any Third-Party Claim before completion of settlement negotiations or related legal proceedings, and the amount of any liability of the Indemnified Person under the Third-Party Claim in respect of which such a payment was made, as finally determined (pursuant to paragraphs (a), (b) or (c) of Section 9(8)), is less than the amount which was paid by the Indemnifying Person, the Indemnified Person shall, forthwith after receipt of the difference from the Third Party, pay the amount of such difference to the Indemnifying Person;

 

 
 
 

 

(b)except in the circumstances contemplated by the last sentence of Section 9(6), and whether or not the Indemnifying Person assumes control of the negotiation, settlement or defence of any Third Party Claim, the Indemnified Person shall not negotiate, settle, compromise or pay any Third Party Claim except with the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Person (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld);
(c)the Indemnified Person shall not permit any right of appeal in respect of any Third-Party Claim to terminate without giving the Indemnifying Person notice and an opportunity to contest such Third Party Claim; and
