NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE ABOVE LIMITATIONS ON LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO EITHER PARTY'S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTION 10 (INDEMNIFICATION) BELOW.
10.1. Indemnification by Provider. Provider will defend SFDC against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against SFDC by a third party (i) alleging that Provider's products or services (including Provider Services) or any data that Provider enters into the Heroku Service infringe the intellectual property rights of, or have otherwise harmed, a third party; (ii) based upon a representation made by Provider to such third party; or (iii) based upon a Provider's breach of this Agreement; (each a "Claim Against SFDC"), and will indemnify SFDC from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against SFDC as a result of, or for any amounts paid by SFDC under a settlement approved by Provider in writing of, a Claim Against SFDC, provided SFDC (a) promptly gives Provider written notice of the Claim Against SFDC, (b) gives Provider sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against SFDC (except that Provider may not settle any Claim Against SFDC unless it unconditionally releases SFDC of all liability), and (c) gives Provider all reasonable assistance, at Provider's expense.
10.2. Indemnification by SFDC. SFDC will defend Provider against any claim, demand, suit or proceeding made or brought against Provider by a third party alleging that the Heroku Service infringes or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of a third party; (a "Claim Against Provider"), and will indemnify Provider from any damages, attorney fees and costs finally awarded against Provider as a result of, or for amounts paid by Provider under a settlement approved by SFDC in writing of, a Claim Against Provider, provided Provider (a) promptly gives SFDC written notice of the Claim Against Provider, (b) gives SFDC sole control of the defense and settlement of the Claim Against Provider (except that SFDC may not settle any Claim Against Provider unless it unconditionally releases Provider of all liability), and (c) gives SFDC all reasonable assistance, at SFDC expense. If SFDC receives information about an infringement or misappropriation claim related to the Heroku Service, SFDC may in its discretion and at no cost to Provider (i) modify the Heroku Service so that they are no longer claimed to infringe or misappropriate, (ii) obtain a license for Provider's or Customer's (as applicable) continued use of that Heroku Service in accordance with this Agreement; or (iii) terminate any of Provider's or User's (as applicable) rights for that Heroku Service upon thirty (30) days' written notice and refund Provider or User (as applicable) any prepaid fees covering the remainder of the term of the terminated Heroku Service. The above defense and indemnification obligations do not apply to the extent a Claim Against Provider arises from Content, a Non-SFDC Application, Elements Content or Provider's breach of this Agreement, the Documentation or applicable Order Forms.

11.2. Entire Agreement; Amendments.

If any term of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain effective. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions in the body of this Agreement and any addenda or exhibit hereto, the terms of such addenda or exhibit shall prevail. To the extent of any conflict or inconsistency between the provisions in the body of this Agreement and any Order Form, the terms of the Order Form shall prevail.

11.4. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the provision will be deemed null and void, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in effect.
11.5. Waiver. No delay or failure by either Party to exercise any right or remedy under this Agreement will constitute a waiver of such right or remedy. All waivers must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the Party waiving its rights. A waiver by any Party of any breach or covenant shall not be construed as a waiver of any succeeding breach of any other covenant.
11.6. Compliance with Applicable Laws.

Provider shall be responsible for providing complete and accurate billing and contact information to SFDC and shall notify SFDC of any changes to such information.
5.2.2. Electronic Invoicing.

Any error due to the provision by Provider of incorrect or insufficient invoicing information preventing (a) SFDC to successfully submit the electronic invoice to the SDI or (b) the SDI to duly and effectively process such invoice or (c) which, in any event, requires SFDC to issue an invoice again, shall not result in an extension of the payment term set out in the "Payments" Section above, and such term shall still be calculated from the date of the original invoice. SFDC reserves the right to provide any invoice copy in electronic form via email in addition to the electronic invoicing described herein.
5.2.3. Split Payment.
