6.1 Luware is not aware of any third-party rights that hinder Customer’s right of use hereunder. If claims are asserted against Customer based on violation of a third party intellectual property right in connection with the Software, then Customer shall promptly notify Luware of such a claim in writing. Luware will defend such claims at its own cost and expense and hold Customer harmless, provided that Customer (i) has notified Luware in due course of the asserted claim in writing; (ii) takes all reasonable and feasible actions to help defend against the claim; and (iii) does not or has not consent(ed) to entry of any judgement or settlement related to such claim.

6.3 The Indemnity set out above shall not apply in relation to any infringement which (i) results from the use of the Software in combination with other equipment not supplied by Luware; (ii) is due to a modification made to the Software by Customer not authorized by Luware in writing; or (iii) which is due to a failure of Customer to abide to the Documentation or this EULA.
