After the indemnitor has delivered an Election Notice, the indemnitor shall not be liable to the indemnitee for any legal expenses incurred by the indemnitee in connection with the defense of that Third Party Claim. In addition, the indemnitor shall not be required to indemnify the indemnitee for any amount paid or payable by the indemnitee in the settlement of any Third Party Claim for which the indemnitor has delivered a timely Election Notice if such amount was agreed to without the written consent of the indemnitor. If the indemnitor does not deliver an Election Notice relating to any Third Party Claim within the required Election Notice Period, the indemnitee shall have the right to defend the Third Party Claim in such manner as it may deem appropriate, at the sole cost and expense of the indemnitor.
