Any claim by
Seller for adjustment under this Paragraph 15(a) must be asserted in writing within twenty (20) days from the date of receipt by
Seller of notification of the change or suspension and shall be followed as soon as practicable with specification of the amount claimed and supporting cost figures. However, nothing herein shall excuse Seller from proceeding with this Purchase Order as changed pending resolution of the claim.

’ s customers shall be free from any claims of infringement. Seller shall indemnify and save Buyer, and its customers harmless from any and all expenses, liability, and loss of any kind (including all costs and expenses including attorneys
fees) arising out of claims, suits, or actions alleging such infringement, which claims, suits, or actions Seller, hereby, agrees to defend, at Seller
’ s expense, if requested to do so by Buyer. Seller may replace or modify infringing items with comparable items acceptable to Buyer of substantially the same form, fit, and function so as to remove the source of infringement, and Seller
’ s obligations under this Purchase Order including those contained in Section 13 and in this Section 16 shall apply to the replacement and modified items.
