Warranties.
6.4. Disclaimer of Warranties. SUBJECT TO ANY LIMITATIONS UNDER APPLICABLE
LAW, THE LIMITED WARRANTIES STATED IN THIS AGREEMENT ARE
EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF AND EXCLUDE ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED
WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF

against all third-party claims and all expenses (“Losses”) incurred by Customer
Indemnitee in connection with or arising from any claim by a third party for physical
STEM MSA-D «ACCOUNT_CUSTOMER_NO» Page 7 of 18 | Proprietary & Confidential version MSA-D 10.21.2

damage to or physical destruction of property, or death of or bodily injury to any
person, but only to the extent caused by (i) the negligence, to the extent of such
negligence, of Stem or its Affiliates, agents, employees or others under Stem’s control
(which, for greater certainty, will not include Customer, its Affiliates, or subcontractors
or such party or parties’ willful misconduct), or (ii) a breach by Stem of any of its
obligations under the affected Integrated Services Contract.
7.2. Indemnification by Stem Infringement. Stem specifically agrees to indemnify,
defend, and hold the Customer Indemnitee harmless from and against all Losses of
any kind whatsoever arising from actual or alleged infringement or misappropriation of
any Intellectual Property rights of a third party based on the technology used by Stem
to perform the Stem Services or in Stem’s performance of the Stem Services
(“Infringement”), except where such claim is based on (i) the combination of the
technology used by Customer with any technology provided by Stem under the
affected Integrated Services Contract; or (ii) any modifications to the Stem Services
not performed by Stem. For the avoidance of doubt, the indemnity in this section does
not pertain to the Systems and does not cover any claims or Losses related to
infringement or misappropriation of Intellectual Property related to the Systems not
provided by Stem. In addition, for any claims of infringement or misappropriation of
Intellectual Property rights for which Stem must indemnify Customer (or if Stem
reasonably believes that such a claim is likely), Stem, at its option, may choose to
modify, and Customer shall permit Stem to so modify as commercially reasonable, the
technology which is the basis of the claim to rectify any alleged infringement or
misappropriation.
7.3. Indemnification by Customer. Customer shall fully indemnify, hold harmless and
defend Stem, Stem’s Affiliates, and their respective shareholders, members and
partners, and each of their respective representatives, employees, officers, directors,
and agents (collectively, the “Stem Indemnitee”) from and against all Losses incurred
by Stem Indemnitee in connection with or arising from any claim by a third party for
physical damage to or physical destruction of property, or death of or bodily injury to
any person, but only to the extent caused by (i) the negligence, to the extent of such
negligence, of Customer or its Affiliates, agents or employees or others under
Customer’s control (which, for greater certainty, will not include Stem, its Affiliates or
subcontractors), or (ii) a breach by Customer of any of its obligations under the
affected Integrated Services Contract.
7.4. Indemnification Remedies. If any claim is brought against any Customer Indemnitee
or Stem Indemnitee (the “Indemnified Party”), the Indemnified Party shall promptly, but
no more than ten Business Days after becoming aware of such claim, provide notice
of such claim to the other party (the “Indemnifying Party”). The Indemnifying Party will
be entitled to participate in, and, unless in the opinion of counsel for the Indemnified
Party, acting reasonably, a conflict of interest between the parties may exist with
respect to such claim, assume the defense of such claim, with counsel reasonably
acceptable to the Indemnified Party. If the Indemnifying Party does not assume the
