The acceptance of the Services by Global shall not operate as a waiver of such right of indemnification.

To the extent not covered by insurance, Global agrees, to the fullest extent permitted by law, to indemnify, defend, and hold Lodemo, its officers, directors, employees, and subcontractors harmless from and against all third party claims, demands, causes of action, damages, losses, and expenses of whatsoever nature, character, or description, regardless of the merit thereof, which are or may be asserted against Lodemo by any person or entity, and which arise out of or result from, in whole or in part, (i) the negligent acts or omissions of Global in the performance of Lodemo’s obligations under this Agreement, or (ii) the breach by Global of any terms of this Agreement.

Global shall reimburse Lodemo on a current basis for all taxes, excises or other charges which Lodemo may be required to pay to any government (federal, state, or local) relating to the Project, whether current in nature or as the result of any tax audit, by reason of any of its activities hereunder and not otherwise provided for herein.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Global shall not be required to reimburse Lodemo for taxes on or measured by Lodemo’s fees, net income or profit,

Neither party shall, directly or indirectly, disclose, communicate, divulge, furnish or make accessible or available, in whole or in part, to any person, firm, company, corporation or other entity, other than to its employees and other representatives to the extent necessary to discharge and perform its obligations under this Agreement or as required by any law or regulation, any data, know—how, drawings, plans, written instructions, or other writings, processes, techniques, methods, designs, inventions, materials, formula, equipment, machinery, devices and the like (whether or not patentable) of a secret and confidential nature, and any other confidential information, material or matter, or trade secrets, relating or pertaining to the business of the other party that it learns of pursuant to this Agreement including, any such information relating to the processes and equipment for the production of products by the process used in the Project or by a similar process.

Unless terminated pursuant to Section 14, the term of this Agreement shall commence on the date hereof and continue for 20 years from the date hereof. At the expiration of the term, or upon termination pursuant to Section 14, Global shall continue to own all rights to the contracts, land, agricultural output, Facilities, Products, intellectual rights, and all other Project assets.  Sections 8, 9, 11 and 12 shall survive the termination of this Agreement.
14.1 In the event Lodemo is in default in the performance of any obligation under this Agreement and shall fail to diligently proceed to correct such default within thirty (30) calendar days following written notice from Global (or such longer time period to the extent the cure of the default is of a nature so as to require more time, provided that Lodemo commences the cure and continues the prosecution of the cure until completed) , or if Lodemo dissolves, files a petition in bankruptcy, or makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or if a petition in bankruptcy is filed against Lodemo or a receiver is appointed for reasons of insolvency; Global may, without prejudice to any other rights or remedies Global may have, terminate this Agreement by written notice.  In the event of termination for default, Global may take possession of and finish the Services by whatever method Global deems expedient. In such event, Lodemo shall be liable for all damages sustained by Global by reason of such termination, whether at law or in equity.  Global's right to require strict performance of any and all obligations in this Agreement shall not be affected by any previous waiver, forbearance or course of dealing prior to such termination.  Global shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and disbursements in any action successfully brought to enforce its rights under this Agreement.
14.2 Global shall have the option, exercisable in good faith at its reasonable judgment, to terminate this Agreement, upon 90 days’ prior written notice to Lodemo, if both (i) an event of Infeasibility has occurred, and (ii) Global thereafter ceases to independently pursue the Project.  For purposes of this Agreement, “Infeasibility” shall mean the inability of the parties to proceed with the Project or impracticality of the Project for reasons beyond their reasonable control, including, without limitation:
1. Political actions of a governmental agency that makes the Project more costly or time consuming or financially burdensome to undertake, including, without limitation, restrictions on land ownership or use, restrictions on the processes involved in the Project, nationalization of the Project, or enactment of laws that significantly and adversely affect the Project.
2. Determination that the oil extraction process does not result in commercially significant quantities of usable oil, or that the price for such oil makes the Project commercially unsustainable.
3. Natural disaster that affects a material portion of the Project (including the Jatropha plants, the distribution system, or the Oil Extraction Facility), and is not able to be corrected within twelve months.

4. Unexpectedly high costs of operations, provided that high costs shall not be grounds for claiming Infeasibility unless the overall operating costs exceed 200% of the Budget.

All claims and disputes and other matters in question arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach thereof, shall be submitted first to voluntary Mediation, and if Mediation is not successful, then to binding Arbitration, in accordance with the then-current Model Procedure for Mediation of Business Disputes of the Center for Public Resources.  Arbitrators and Mediators shall be jointly selected by the parties, and have experience in international dispute resolution involving business between Mexico and the United States.  Judgment on any arbitration award may be entered in a court of any competent jurisdiction.

The prevailing party shall be entitled to recover its reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and disbursements in any action brought to enforce or its rights under this Agreement or to interpret the provisions of this Agreement.  The existence of any claim, dispute or legal proceeding shall not relieve Lodemo from its obligation to properly perform its Services during such Mediation or Arbitration proceedings as set forth herein.

Notwithstanding the above, before either party pursues Mediation or Arbitration, the parties agree to attempt to resolve any dispute amicably at a meeting to be attended by persons with decision-making authority.  If, within thirty (30) calendar days after such meeting, the parties have not succeeded in negotiating a resolution of the dispute, they agree to resolve the dispute according to the Mediation and Arbitration dispute resolution process described in this Section.
