B. Customer Indemnity. Customer, at its sole expense, will indemnify and defend ViLogics and its directors, officers, employees and agents or other authorized representatives (“ViLogics Indemnitees”) from and against any damages, payments, deficiencies, fines, judgments, settlements, liabilities, losses, awards, costs, and expenses (including, but not limited to, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs, penalties, interest, and disbursements), arising out of or related to any claim alleging: (i) Customer’s use of the Solutions in breach of this Agreement; (ii) Customer’s unauthorized use of any third party intellectual property; (iii) breach or alleged breach of Customer’s obligations under Sections 2(C) (Third-Party Products), 2(D) (Third-Party Service), or the Restrictions; or (iv) Customer’s failure to maintain commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures to secure their login information to such account.
