11.1 General. In addition to all other indemnification obligations set forth in other sections of the Agreement, Partner, at its sole expense, will defend, indemnify and hold harmless SkyKick and its directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, the “SkyKick Indemnitees”) from and against any and all actual or threatened suits, actions, proceedings (at law or in equity), claims (groundless or otherwise), damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney fees, costs, penalties, interest and disbursements) (collectively, “Liabilities”) resulting from any claim (including third party claims), suit, action, or proceeding against any SkyKick Indemnitee, whether successful or not, resulting from or arising in connection with (a) Partner’s sale, failure to sell, or provision of the Services to Customer; (b) Partner or Partner Party’s use of the Customer Data or the SkyKick Platform; (c) any breach of the Agreement or an applicable Customer Contract or a violation of applicable law by Partner or a Partner Party; (d) any statement, representation, warranty, contractual obligation or other commitment made by Partner with respect to the Services that is inconsistent with or not provided by SkyKick in the terms of the Agreement, the Documentation provided by SkyKick or any SkyKick Policy; (f) the negligence or willful misconduct of Partner or any Partner Party; or (e) Partner’s failure to obtain any required consents or authorizations from Customer as described in Section 2.3 or Section 8.4 of the Agreement.

Provided that Partner promptly investigates and defends any such claim, Partner will have control over the defense and settlement thereof at its sole cost and expense. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Partner will not settle or compromise any claim in a manner that does not fully release SkyKick from such claim or results in a restriction on or admission by SkyKick or subjects SkyKick to any additional obligations. In the event that SkyKick determines, in its sole discretion, that Partner has failed to promptly investigate or rigorously defend any claim for which Partner has an obligation to indemnify, SkyKick will have the right to defend and settle such claim at Partner’s cost and expense.
