Each party agrees to be responsible for any breach of this Agreement caused by any of its Representatives. The Receiving Party further agrees to take the same security precautions to protect against unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized use of such Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party that the party takes with its own confidential or proprietary information, but in no event will a party apply less than reasonable precautions to protect such Confidential Information.

For the avoidance of doubt, MSP acknowledges that SKOUT utilizes the services of certain third parties in connection with the provision of the Services (such as data hosting and other service providers) and such third parties, along with any other third party service providers that MSP or MSP End User may choose to integrate with the Services, will have access to MSP’s and MSP End Users’ Confidential Information, including MSP Data, in accordance with this Agreement.

Solely if and to the extent SKOUT is processing personal data, as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation, that is contained in MSP Data or MSP End User Personal Data on MSP’s or any MSP End User’s behalf, then the terms of the Data Processing Addendum available at https://getskout.com/partners/DPA and shall apply to such processing and are incorporated into this Agreement. 8.3 MSP may enable integrations between the Services and certain third-party services used by its MSP End Users (each, an “Integration”).

MSP and its MSP End Users are responsible for providing any and all instructions to such third-party service providers about the use and protection of MSP End User Personal Data. SKOUT and any such third-party service providers are not subprocessors of each other. 8.4 As the data controller, or processor as applicable, of MSP Personal Data and MSP End User Personal Data, MSP represents and warrants to SKOUT that its provision of personal data to SKOUT and instructions for processing such personal data in connection with the Services shall comply with all Data Protection Laws. 8.5 MSP may, upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice, and no more than once per twelve (12) month period, appoint an independent third party auditor to physically inspect and audit, at MSP’s sole cost and expense, any facilities owned or controlled by SKOUT in which MSP or MSP End User Personal Data is processed or stored, provided that such inspection: (a) shall occur on a mutually agreed upon date during SKOUT’s regular business hours; (b) does not interfere with any of SKOUT’s business operations; and, (c) does not, in SKOUT’s reasonable discretion, create any risk to the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of any data stored or processed by SKOUT.

INDEMNIFICATION 9.1 MSP Indemnity. MSP will indemnify, defend and hold harmless SKOUT and its directors, officers, agents and employees from and against any and all claims, demands, actions, litigation, investigations, proceedings, liens, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) arising out of or related to (a) any claim made by or dispute with a MSP End User arising from MSP’s breach of its obligations under this Agreement (including a failure by MSP to pay to SKOUT the Services fees for such MSP End User); (b) any representations or warranties made by MSP to the MSP End User regarding the Services that exceed or are inconsistent with the representations set forth in SKOUTs’ EULA or published documentation for such Services; or (c) any gross negligence or intentional misconduct by MSP.

In the event of any third-party Claim, demand, suit, or action for which MSP (or any of its employees) is or may be entitled to indemnification hereunder, SKOUT shall defend any such Claim or settle any such Claim at SKOUT’s sole expense. SKOUT may not agree to settle any such Claim, which does not provide for a full release of MSP, without MSP’s express prior written consent. In the event that the Services are or are likely to become the subject of such a Claim of infringement, SKOUT shall, at its expense, procure for MSP End User the right to continue to use such Services; modify the Services so that they are non-infringing, but functionally equivalent; or, if neither of the foregoing are commercially reasonable, terminate MSP End User’s right to continue to use the allegedly infringing Services and refund to MSP, on a pro-rata basis, any prepaid Services fees as of the effective date of termination. SKOUT shall have no infringement indemnification obligation if MSP, MSP End User or a third party not authorized by SKOUT modifies the Services and the Claim would not have arisen but for such modification; or, if the Services have been combined by MSP, MSP End User or a third party not authorized by SKOUT with products, software or services not provided by SKOUT, if the Claim would have been avoided but for such combination. 9.3 Indemnification Procedures. The indemnified party will (i) promptly notify the indemnifying party in writing of any claim, suit or proceeding for which indemnity is claimed, provided that failure to so notify will not remove the indemnifying party’s obligation exceptto the extent it is prejudiced thereby, and (ii) allow the indemnifying party to solely control the defense of any claim, suit or proceeding and all negotiations for settlement. In no event may either party enter into any third-party agreement which would in any manner whatsoever affect the rights of the other party or bind the other party in any manner to such third party, without the prior written consent of the other party. This Section 9states each party’s exclusive remediesfor any third-party claimor action, and nothing in this Agreement or elsewhere will obligate either party to provide any greater indemnity to the other. 9 | Page SKOUT Managed Service Provider Agreement (November 2019) 10.
