The foregoing states Getty Images' entire indemnification obligation under this Agreement.

12.1 Unauthorized Use and Termination. Any use of Licensed Material in a manner not expressly authorized by this Agreement or in breach of a term of this Agreement constitutes copyright infringement, entitling Getty Images to exercise all rights and remedies available to it under copyright laws around the world. In addition, and without prejudice to Getty Images' other remedies under this Agreement, Getty Images reserves the right to charge and Licensee agrees to pay a fee equal to up to five (5) times Getty Images' standard license fee for the unauthorized use of the Licensed Material. Getty Images reserves the right to terminate this Agreement in the event Licensee: (i) enters the Agreement after having received notice of unauthorized use from Getty Images relating to the Licensed Material; (ii) provides inaccurate information regarding its proposed use of the Licensed Material at the time of entering the Agreement; (iii) fails to pay the License Fee on the due date; or (iv) otherwise breaches the terms of this Agreement. Upon termination, Licensee must immediately (I) stop using the Licensed Material; and (II) destroy or, upon the request of Getty Images, return to Getty Images the Licensed Material and, in the case of termination by Getty Images for cause, the Licensee Work in the Possession or control of Licensee.
12.2 Audit/Certificate of Compliance. Upon reasonable notice, Licensee shall provide sample copies of Copies or Licensee Works containing Licensed Material to Getty Images, including by providing Getty Images with free of charge access to any pay-walled or otherwise restricted access website or platform where the Licensed Material is Copied or Broadcast. In addition, upon reasonable notice, Getty Images may, at its discretion, either through its own employees or through a third party, audit Licensee's records directly related to this Agreement and use of Licensed Material in order to verify compliance with the terms of this Agreement. If any such audit reveals an underpayment by Licensee to Getty Images of five percent (5%) or more of the amount Licensee should have paid for the time period that is the subject of the audit, in addition to paying Getty Images the amount of such underpayment, Licensee shall also reimburse Getty Images for the costs of conducting such audit. Where Getty Images reasonably believes that Licensed Material is being used outside the scope of the license granted under this Agreement, Licensee shall, at Getty Images' request, provide a certificate of compliance signed by an officer of Licensee, in a form to be approved by Getty Images.
12.3 Withdrawal. Upon notice from Getty Images, or upon Licensee's knowledge that any Licensed Material may be subject to a claim of another's right for which Getty Images may be liable, Getty Images may require Licensee to immediately and at its own expense (i) stop using the Licensed Material; (ii) delete or remove the Licensed Material from its premises, computer systems and storage (electronic and physical); and (iii) ensure that its clients do likewise. Getty Images shall provide Licensee with comparable Licensed Material (which comparability will be determined by Getty Images in its reasonable commercial judgment), free of charge, but subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement.
12.4 Governing Law/Arbitration. This agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, U.S.A., without reference to its laws relating to conflicts of law. Any disputes arising from or related to this agreement shall be finally settled by binding, confidential arbitration by a single arbitrator selected using the rules and procedures for arbitrator selection under the JAMS' Expedited Procedures in its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures ("JAMS") if you are in North America, or of the International Centre for Dispute Resolution ("ICDR") or JAMS if you are outside of North America (the applicable rules to be at your discretion), in effect on the date of the commencement of arbitration to be held in one of the following jurisdictions (whichever is closest to you): New York, New York; London, England; Paris, France; Munich, Germany; Madrid, Spain; Milan, Italy; Sydney, Australia; Tokyo, Japan; or Singapore. The arbitration proceedings shall be conducted in English and all documentation shall be presented and filed in English. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties, and judgment may be entered on the arbitration award and enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods does not govern this agreement. The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable legal costs relating to that aspect of its claim or defense on which it prevails, and any opposing costs awards shall be offset. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Getty Images shall have the right to commence and prosecute any legal or equitable action or proceeding before any court of competent jurisdiction to obtain injunctive or other relief against you in the event that, in the opinion of Getty Images, such action is necessary or desirable to protect its intellectual property rights. The parties agree that, notwithstanding any otherwise applicable statute(s) of limitation, any arbitration proceeding shall be commenced within two years of the acts, events or occurrences giving rise to the claim.
12.5 Severability. If one or more of the provisions contained in this Agreement is found to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions shall not be affected. Such provisions shall be revised only to the extent necessary to make them enforceable.
12.6 Waiver. No action of either party, other than express written waiver, may be construed as a waiver of any provision of this Agreement. A delay on the part of either party in the exercise of its rights or remedies will not operate as a waiver of such rights or remedies, and a single or partial exercise by either party of any such rights or remedies will not preclude other or further exercise of that right or remedy. A waiver of a right or remedy on one occasion will not be construed as a bar to or waiver of rights or remedies on any other occasion.
12.7 Entire Agreement. This Agreement is intended for business customers of Getty Images and contains all the terms of the license agreement. No terms or conditions may be added or deleted unless made in writing and either accepted in writing by an authorized representative of both parties or issued electronically by Getty Images and accepted in writing by an authorized representative of Licensee. In the event of any inconsistency between the terms contained herein and the terms contained on any purchase order sent by Licensee, the terms of this Agreement shall govern.
