For Software licensed under the Enterprise Edition License only, Trilio shall defend you against any claim, demand, suit, or proceeding (each a “Claim”) made or brought against you by a third party to the extent alleging that the Software, or your use of the Software as permitted hereunder infringes or misappropriates the Intellectual Property Rights of a third party, and shall indemnify you for any out-of-pocket damages, attorney fees, costs, judgments, and approved settlement payments, incurred in defending such Claim (collectively, “Losses”).
