The indemnification obligations under this Section 5 are expressly conditioned upon the indemnified party’s compliance with this Section 5.3 except that failure to notify the indemnifying party of such Claim shall not relieve that party of its obligations under this Section 5 but such obligations shall be reduced to the extent of any damages attributable to such failure.

In the event Blu Banyan suspends access to the Service, Blu Banyan will use commercially reasonable efforts to limit the suspension to the offending portion of the Service and work with Customer to resolve the issues causing the suspension of Service. Customer agrees that Blu Banyan shall not be liable to Customer nor to any third party for any suspension of the Service under such circumstances described in this Section.
