    • Infringement Remedy – If Customer is enjoined or otherwise prohibited from using any of the Platform Services or a portion thereof based on a Claim covered by Upsolver’s indemnification obligations under Section 11.2 above, then Upsolver will, at its sole expense and option, either: (a) obtain for Customer the right to use the allegedly infringing portions of the Platform Services; (b) modify the allegedly infringing portions of the Platform Services so as to render them non-infringing without substantially diminishing or impairing their functionality; or (c) replace the allegedly infringing portions of the Platform Services with non-infringing items of substantially similar functionality.

Without limiting Upsolver’s obligation to indemnify Customer as set forth in Section 11.2 hereof, the remedy set out in this Section 11.3 is Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any actual or alleged infringement by Upsolver of any third-party Intellectual Property rights in the event that Customer is enjoined or otherwise prohibited from using any of the Platform Services or a portion thereof based on a Claim covered by Upsolver’s indemnification obligations under Section 11.2.
