Nayya shall (i) report any Breach to the Customer without undue delay after Nayya discovers a Breach has occurred and (ii) take appropriate measures to address the Breach, including measures to mitigate any adverse effects resulting from the Breach. Nayya shall keep the Customer informed of the progress of its investigation.
Notifications made pursuant to this Section 4 (Breaches of Covered Information) will describe, in Nayya’s discretion, details of the Breach, including steps taken to mitigate the potential risks and steps Nayya recommends Customer take to address the Breach.
Customer is solely responsible for complying with incident notification laws applicable to Customer and carrying out any third-party notification obligations related to any Breach(es).
INDEMNITY AND INSURANCE
Nayya shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Customer from liabilities, costs, losses, damages and expenses from any third-party claim against the Customer arising out of or resulting from Nayya’s gross negligence or willful failure to comply with any of its obligations under this Addendum, including its obligations to protect the Customer’s Covered Information. In no event will Nayya’s total collective liability under this clause exceed the aggregate fees paid or owed by the Customer for services rendered pursuant to the Agreement in the last twelve (12) months.
At all times during the term of the Agreement, Nayya shall maintain professional liability or errors and omissions (“E&O”) insurance, which shall include security and privacy liability, and cyber coverages (separately, or as part of the professional liability or E&O insurance coverage), covering Nayya for claims and losses resulting from actual or alleged wrongful acts committed in the performance of or failure to perform all services or support services to the Customer.
The terms and conditions set forth in this Addendum shall survive the expiration or other termination of the Agreement between the parties for as long as Nayya retains Covered Information on behalf of Customer.
A failure or delay in exercising any right in respect to this Addendum shall not be presumed to operate as a waiver, and a single or partial exercise of any right shall not be presumed to preclude any subsequent or further exercise of that right or the exercise of any other right.
