LevelTen’s obligations under this Section 5.2 are contingent upon Customer: (a) promptly notifying LevelTen of such alleged infringement or violation; (b) making no admission as to liability in respect of any such claim, or otherwise prejudicing LevelTen's defense of any suit, action or claim; (c) allowing and appointing LevelTen’s representatives by way of power of attorney, if required, to arrange the conduct, settlement, negotiation or litigation of such claim to be solely handled by LevelTen; and (d) reasonably cooperating with LevelTen, at LevelTen’s reasonable expense, in the defense of any such claim to the extent requested to do so by LevelTen.

6. Termination of Access to Reports
6.1. LevelTen may terminate this Agreement (i) immediately and unilaterally without written notice to Customer if LevelTen reasonably concludes that Customer is in breach of the license terms and restrictions set forth in Section 1 hereof; and (ii) upon notice to the Customer, if Customer breaches any other term of this Agreement and (to the extent such breach is capable of being cured) fails to cure such breach within five (5) days of receipt of written notice of breach; and (iii) immediately upon written notice to Customer if LevelTen considers such termination necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory requirement.
6.2. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, (i) Customer’s license to access and use each Report licensed hereunder, and all information contained therein, will terminate immediately and Customer shall make no further use whatsoever of any Report and the information contained therein; and (ii) Customer shall within five (5) days destroy all copies of each Report and any part of any document or electronic file held by Customer that contains data and other information extracted, exported or reproduced from such Report.

7. Fees; Taxes.
7.1. In addition to the applicable Fee for each Report licensed hereunder, Customer shall pay all applicable tax and other governmental charges. Unless otherwise stated on the Site or order form or invoice at the time Customer pays the applicable Fee, payment collected by LevelTen for each Report shall exclude sales or use tax, any value added tax or any other tax or other governmental charge payable in connection with Customer’s execution and delivery of this Agreement or the exercise of Customer’s rights hereunder.
7.2. Customer shall pay each Fee pursuant to the terms set forth on the Site or in the applicable order form or invoice. If LevelTen elects to provide Customer any Report prior to Customer having paid the applicable Fee, such election by LevelTen shall not relieve Customer of Customer’s obligation to pay such Fee. No Fee is refundable for any reason.
7.3. Each Fee is net of any applicable withholding taxes that may be imposed by governmental authorities of any country from which payment of such Fee may be made. If any such withholding taxes are imposed or collected in connection with such Fee in a manner that results in the amount received by LevelTen being reduced below the amount of the applicable Fee, Customer shall be responsible for paying to LevelTen such additional amounts that are necessary to cause LevelTen to have received the full amount of the applicable Fee net of such taxes.
8. Injunctive Relief. Customer agrees that there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of the license terms and restrictions hereunder and that LevelTen, in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law or in equity, shall be deemed to have suffered irreparable harm, and shall be entitled to appropriate equitable relief to prevent the use of any Report in breach of this Agreement or the unauthorized use, copying, or distribution of any Report or portion thereof.
9. Notices. All notices or other communications pursuant to this Agreement shall be made in writing and shall be delivered by personal delivery, by prepaid registered or certified mail (return receipt requested), by overnight courier (with receipt for delivery), to the applicable address specified, in Customer’s case, on the Site or in the applicable order form or invoice in connection with Customer’s order of any Report licensed hereunder, or in the case of LevelTen, to LevelTen at LevelTen Energy, Inc., Attn: Legal Department, 837 N. 34th Street, Suite 200, Seattle, WA, 84103, or as otherwise notified to Customer from time to time.
10. Miscellaneous. This Agreement will be interpreted and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without application of any principles of choice of laws. This Agreement embodies the entire understanding of the parties and supersedes all previous communications, representations, or understandings, either oral or written, between the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement. If any provision, clause, or application of this Agreement to any party or circumstance is held invalid and unenforceable, this shall not affect any other provision, clause, or application of this Agreement. This Agreement may not be amended unless such amendment is made in writing and signed by both parties. No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right, power or privilege under this Agreement will operate as a waiver of such right, power or privilege. Customer may not assign any of its rights and privileges under this Agreement without LevelTen’s prior written consent.
