This indemnification includes Customer’s noncompliance with any and all insurance contracts or coverage, payment or reimbursement laws, rules and regulations. To the extent applicable, Customer will obtain Azova’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Customer agrees to any finding of fault of Azova or defect in the Site or Services. Azova will promptly notify Customer in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Customer with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Customer exclusive control over its defense and settlement.
