If Sprinklr, in its sole discretion, determines that neither (x) nor (y) are commercially reasonable, Sprinklr may terminate the provision of the affected Sprinklr Services and refund to Customer the amount of any pre-paid Fees applicable to the terminated Sprinklr Services for the period after termination.

The Indemnitee has the right to participate in the defense against the indemnified Claims with counsel of its choice and at its own expense but may not confess judgment, admit liability or take any other actions prejudicial to the defense. Further, the Indemnitee may not settle an Indemnified claim unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of the other party from all liability on all Claims, or the other party gives its prior written consent, which shall not be unreasonably withheld.
