The indemnifying Party shall not agree to any settlement that admits any wrong doing on the part of the indemnified Party, imposes civil or criminal liability on any indemnified Party, or requires any specific performance by any indemnified Party without the indemnifying Party first obtaining the indemnified Party’s written consent, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld.
9.1. Invoicing and Payment Terms. Customer will pay Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller) the Fees set forth on the applicable Order Form or SOW, and payments will be due in accordance with the invoice schedule set forth in the applicable Order Form or SOW.

From time to time, but not more frequently than once per calendar quarter, in order to verify Customer’s compliance with its license usage rights, Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller) may access and review Usage Data. If Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller) learns that Customer’s actual usage (“Actual Usage”) exceeds the relevant License Parameters paid for by Customer (“Purchased Usage”), Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller) may invoice Customer accordingly. Unless otherwise mutually agreed in an express writing signed by duly authorized representatives of both Parties, the Fees charged to Customer for such additional usage will be based on the pricing charged to the Customer in the Order Form containing the most recent License Parameters (as amended from time to time pursuant to this Section 9.2) and, unless otherwise agreed, the Fees will be charged for the balance of the Subscription Term so that the licenses may be coterminous with the existing licenses.

Taxes will not be deducted from payments to Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller), except as required by applicable law, in which case Customer will increase the amount payable as necessary so that, after making all required deductions and withholdings, Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller) receives and retains (free from any liability for Taxes) an amount equal to the amount it would have received had no such deductions or with holdings been made. Upon Observe.ai’s (or its authorized reseller’s) request, Customer will provide to Observe.ai (or its authorized reseller) its proof of with holding tax remittance to the respective tax authority. Where applicable, Customer will provide its VAT/GST Registration Number(s) on the Order Form to confirm the business use of the ordered services.
