6. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES.
6.1. Mutual Representations. Each Party hereby represents and warrants: (i) that it is duly organized, validly existing and in good standing under the laws of its jurisdiction of incorporation; (ii) that the execution and performance of this Agreement will not conflict with or violate any provision of any law having applicability to such Party; and (iii) that this Agreement, when executed and delivered, will constitute a valid and binding obligation of such Party and will be enforceable against such Party in accordance with its terms.

6.4. By Hardware Manufacturer. All warranties regarding any hardware (including, without limitation, any televisions containing the Independa Offering), obtained by Subscriber in connection with this Agreement, shall be solely those warranties provided by the manufacturer of such hardware. If Independa provides any such hardware to Subscriber, then Independa shall, to the extent permitted by the manufacturer, pass-through the manufacturer’s warranties for such hardware to Subscriber. For avoidance of doubt, the manufacturer’s warranties are the only warranties provided under this Agreement regarding hardware – Independa does not provide any separate hardware warranties to Subscriber.
6.5. Internet Delays. THE INDEPENDA OFFERING MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIMITATIONS, DELAYS, AND OTHER PROBLEMS INHERENT IN THE USE OF THE INTERNET AND ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATIONS. INDEPENDA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DELAYS, DELIVERY FAILURES, OR OTHER DAMAGE RESULTING FROM SUCH PROBLEMS.
6.6. General Disclaimer. EXCEPT FOR ANY EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE INDEPENDA OFFERING IS PROVIDED “AS IS” AND “WITH ALL FAULTS.” TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, INDEPENDA DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL OTHER PROMISES, REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, SYSTEM INTEGRATION, DATA ACCURACY, TITLE AND/OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. INDEPENDA DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE INDEPENDA OFFERING WILL MEET SUBSCRIBER’S REQUIREMENTS OR THAT THE OPERATION OF THE INDEPENDA APPLICATION WILL BE SECURE, UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT ALL ERRORS WILL BE CORRECTED. INDEPENDA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE INDEPENDA OFFERING’S COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS AND REGULATIONS IN THE JURISDICTION WHERE SUBSCRIBER IS LOCATED, AND DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY ASSOCIATED THEREWITH. WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, INDEPENDA MAKES NO WARRANTIES WITH RESPECT TO THE THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS. NOTWITHSTANDING THE ABOVE, WITH RESPECT TO ANY THIRD PARTY PRODUCT, INDEPENDA AGREES TO PASS THROUGH TO ANY AUTHORIZED USER ANY THIRD PARTY WARRANTY FOR SUCH THIRD PARTY PRODUCT (TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY SUCH THIRD PARTY).
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO SUBSCRIBER IN THEIR ENTIRETY.
6.7. Specific Disclaimer. THE INDEPENDA OFFERING IS NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE AND SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT. FURTHER, WHILE IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE INDEPENDA OFFERING MAY INCREASE THE SPEED WITH WHICH IMPORTANT INFORMATION IS TRANSMITTED, NEITHER SUBSCRIBER NOR ANY CAREGIVER OR CARE RECIPIENT SHOULD RELY ON THE ERROR-FREE OPERATION OF THE INDEPENDA OFFERING (E.G., THE RECEIPT OF ACCURATE AND TIMELY INFORMATION). THE PARTIES ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT INDEPENDA WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE USE OF THE EQUIPMENT OR THE SOFTWARE AS IT RELATES TO ANY FDA REGULATIONS. USE OF THE INDEPENDA OFFERING IN CONJUNCTION WITH MEDICAL DEVICES (E.G., INGESTING AND UPLOADING READINGS FROM AN INSULIN MONITOR) DOES NOT MAKE THE INDEPENDA OFFERING A MEDICAL DEVICE AND IT IS NOT REGULATED AS A MEDICAL DEVICE. CARE RECIPIENT’S DOCTORS AND OTHER MEDICAL SUPPORT PROFESSIONALS SHOULD ALWAYS BE CONSULTED FOR ANY MEDICAL OR HEALTH ISSUES, AND NO INFORMATION FROM THE INDEPENDA OFFERING SHOULD BE RELIED UPON TO DIAGNOSE OR OTHERWISE ASSESS THE MEDICAL CONDITION OF THE CARE RECIPIENT.

IN NO EVENT WILL INDEPENDA BE LIABLE TO SUBSCRIBER, OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY LOST PROFITS OR ANY INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF THE CLAIM, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, COSTS OF DELAY, ANY FAILURE OF DELIVERY, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, COSTS OF LOST OR DAMAGED DATA OR DOCUMENTATION, OR LIABILITIES TO THIRD PARTIES ARISING FROM ANY SOURCE, EVEN IF INDEPENDA HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THE CUMULATIVE LIABILITY OF INDEPENDA TO SUBSCRIBER FOR ALL CLAIMS ARISING FROM OR RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY CAUSE OF ACTION SOUNDING IN CONTRACT, TORT, OR STRICT LIABILITY, WILL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID TO INDEPENDA BY SUBSCRIBER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT DURING THE TWELVE (12)-MONTH PERIOD PRIOR TO THE ACT, OMISSION OR EVENT GIVING RISE TO SUCH LIABILITY. THESE LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY ARE INTENDED TO APPLY WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER OTHER PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT HAVE BEEN BREACHED OR HAVE PROVEN INEFFECTIVE, AND SHALL BE ENFORCED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS AND EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO SUBSCRIBER IN THEIR ENTIRETY.
7.2. Essential Basis. Subscriber acknowledges and understands that the disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability set forth in Sections 6 and 7 form an essential basis of the agreement between the Parties, that the Parties have relied upon such disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability in negotiating the terms and conditions in this Agreement, and that absent such disclaimers, exclusions and limitations of liability, the terms and conditions of this Agreement would be substantially different.
8.1. Independa’s Indemnity Obligations. Independa agrees to indemnify, defend and hold harmless Subscriber from and against any and all losses, liabilities, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), expenses or damages awarded by a court or agreed upon in settlement based on any claim by a third party that the Independa Offering or the Independa Brand, each as used in accordance with this Agreement, infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights that exist in the Territory. In the event such a claim occurs or, in Independa’s opinion, is likely to occur, Independa may, in its sole discretion: (i) procure the right for Subscriber to continue using the Independa Offering in accordance with this Agreement; (ii) repair or modify the Independa Offering so as to make it non-infringing; or (iii) terminate this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Independa shall have no indemnity obligation hereunder if the alleged infringement arises, in whole or in part, from: (x) the unauthorized modification of the Independa Offering or the Independa Brand by a party other than Independa, or (y) the unauthorized combination, operation or use of the Independa Offering with other software, hardware or technology not provided by Independa. THIS SECTION STATES INDEPENDA’S ENTIRE OBLIGATION AND LIABILITY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM OF INFRINGEMENT BY THE INDEPENDA OFFERING AND INDEPENDA BRAND.
8.2. Subscriber’s Indemnity Obligations. Subscriber agrees to hold harmless, indemnify, and, at Independa’s option, defend Independa from and against any losses, liabilities, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), expenses or damages based on any claim by a third party resulting from: (i) Subscriber’s negligence or willful misconduct; (ii) a breach by Subscriber of its representations, warranties and obligations hereunder; (iii) a breach of this Agreement by an Authorized User; or (iv) any claim brought against Independa, in connection with this Agreement, by any Authorized User (other than Subscriber).
