9.1. Each Party (“Indemnifying Party”) agrees to indemnify the other Party (“Other Party”) if a third party makes a claim (“Claim”) against the Other Party that any information, design, specification, instruction, software, service, data, hardware, or material (collectively, “Material”) used by the Other Party, infringes the third party’s intellectual property rights, in the event that such Material was furnished to the Other Party by the Indemnifying Party. The Indemnifying Party, at his sole cost and expense, will defend the Other Party against the Claim, and indemnify the Other Party from all damages, liabilities, costs and expenses awarded by the court to the third party claiming infringement, or as agreed by way of a settlement with the third party, PROVIDED THAT the Other Party does the following:
9.2. If the Indemnifying Party believes that any of the Material may have violated a third party’s intellectual property rights, the Indemnifying Party may choose to either modify the Material to be non-infringing (while substantially preserving its utility or functionality) or obtain a licence to allow for continued use, or if these alternatives are not commercially reasonable, the Indemnifying Party may end the licence for, and require return of, the applicable Material and refund any unused, prepaid fees the Other Party may have paid to the Indemnifying Party for such Material.
9.3 If iShine Cloud is the Indemnifying Party and you are the Other Party, and such return of the applicable Material will materially affect iShine Cloud’s ability to meet its Services obligations, then iShine Cloud may, upon 30 days’ prior written notice, terminate the Services. If such Material is third party technology provided by a Technology Provider, and the terms of the third party licence with the Technology Provider (“Third Party Licence”) do not allow iShine Cloud to terminate the Third Party Licence, then iShine Cloud may, upon 30 days’ prior written notice, end the Services associated with such Material and refund any unused, prepaid fees for such Services to you.
9.4 The Indemnifying Party will not be liable to indemnify the Other Party if the Other Party:
(a) alters the Material or uses it outside the Purpose or otherwise uses it in violation of the terms of this Agreement; or
(b) uses a version of the Material which has been superseded, if the infringement claim could have been avoided by using an unaltered current version of the Material which was made available to the Other Party.
9.5 The Indemnifying Party will not indemnify the Other Party to the extent that an infringement claim is based upon any Material not furnished by the Indemnifying Party.
9.6 iShine Cloud will not indemnify you to the extent that an infringement claim is based on Third Party Content or any Material from a third-party portal or other external source that is accessible or made available to you within or by the Services (e.g., a social media post from a third party blog or forum, a third party Web page accessed via a hyperlink, marketing data from third party data providers, etc.).
9.7 Where indemnification has been provided under this Clause 9, the Other Party agrees that it will not pursue any other infringement claims or damages.
10.1 We may terminate any or all of the Services with immediate effect where you :
(a) have committed a material breach that is not capable of remedy;
(b) have committed a breach of these Terms which is capable of remedy, but fail to correct the breach within  days of written notification of the breach. Except for non-payment of fees, we may agree in our sole discretion to extend the 30-day period for so long as you continue to make reasonable efforts to cure the breach;
(c) have gone into liquidation whether compulsorily or voluntarily (except for the purpose of a bona fide reconstruction or amalgamation).
10.2 In the event of termination, whether in accordance with Clause 9.1 or otherwise, iShine Cloud shall make Customer Content (as it existed at the point of Termination) in the existing format available for retrieval by you for a period of 60 days. Retrieval of Customer Content will be at your own costs. After the end of the 60-day period, iShine Cloud may delete or otherwise render inaccessible any of the Customer Content that remains in the Services.
11. THIRD-PARTY CONTENT, SERVICES AND WEBSITES
11.1 The Services may enable you to link to, transfer Customer Content or Third Party Content to, or otherwise access third parties’ websites, platforms, content, products, services, and information (“Third Party Services”). iShine Cloud does not control and is not responsible for Third Party Services. You are solely responsible for complying with the terms of access and use of Third Party Services, and if iShine Cloud accesses or uses any Third Party Services on your behalf to facilitate performance of the Services, you are solely responsible for ensuring that such access and use, including through passwords, credentials or tokens issued or otherwise made available to you, is authorized by the terms of access and use for such services. If you transfer or cause the transfer of Customer Content or Third Party Content from the Services to a Third Party Service or other location, that transfer constitutes a transfer by you and not by iShine Cloud.
11.2 Any Third Party Content we make accessible is provided on an “as-is” and “as available” basis without any warranty of any kind. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for, and have no obligation to control, monitor, or correct, Third Party Content. We disclaim all liabilities arising from or related to Third Party Content.
12. FORCE MAJEURE
12.1 iShine Cloud shall not be responsible for failure or delay of performance if caused by a Force Majeure event. However, iShine Cloud will use reasonable efforts to mitigate the effect of a Force Majeure event. If such event continues for more than 30 days, you may terminate the Services upon written notice. This Clause does not excuse you from your obligation to pay for the Services up to the date of termination.
13.1. If you wish to issue a notice, make any claims or complaints to iShine Cloud, or if you become subject to insolvency or other similar legal proceedings, you will promptly send written notice to iShine Cloud Limited at 210 Middle Road, #01-01 Singapore Pools Building, Singapore 188994.
13.2.

14.1 You may not assign or transfer the User Subscriptions, or any interest in the Services, to another individual or entity.
15.1 Our business partners and other third parties, including the Technology Providers and any third parties with which the Services have integrations or that are retained by you to provide consulting services, implementation services or applications that interact with the Services, are independent of iShine Cloud and are not iShine Cloud’s agents. We are not liable for, bound by, or responsible for any problems with the Services or Customer Content arising due to any acts of any such business partner or third party, unless the business partner or third party is providing Services as our subcontractor on an engagement ordered by iShine Cloud, in which case we would be responsible only to the extent of our obligations under these Terms.
15.2 If any of these Terms are found to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will remain effective and such Terms shall be replaced with another Term consistent with the purpose and intent of these Terms.
15.3 Prior to accepting our Proposal, you are solely responsible for determining whether the Proposal is suitable for your purpose, though we will provide our assistance and co-operation in relation to your efforts to determine such suitability. Additional fees may apply to any additional work performed by iShine Cloud or changes to the Services. You remain solely responsible for your regulatory compliance in connection with your use of the Services.
15.4 Upon twenty-one (21) days’ written notice and no more than once every twelve (12) months, iShine Cloud may audit your compliance with these Terms. In the event, you agree to co-operate with iShine Cloud’s audit team and to provide reasonable assistance and access to information. iShine Cloud shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that the audit will not unreasonably interfere with your normal operations.
15.5 This Agreement does not create any agency, partnership or joint venture.
15.6 This Agreement does not confer any rights on any person or party (other than the parties to this Agreement and, where applicable, their successors and permitted assigns) pursuant to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act of Singapore (Cap. 53B Rev Ed, 2002).
16. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

Any dispute arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, including any question regarding its existence, validity or termination, shall be referred to and finally resolved by arbitration in Singapore in accordance with the Arbitration Rules of the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (“SIAC Rules”) for the time being in force, which rules are deemed to be incorporated by reference in this clause.
17. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
