1.2 Appointment. Zscaler hereby appoints You and You hereby accept a non-exclusive, non-transferable, and non-assignable appointment to resell the Products to Customer.

In the event Zscaler has reason to believe that a breach of this Section has occurred or will occur, Zscaler may (a) retain an independent third party which will have the right and Your full cooperation to conduct an audit of Your records to determine if a breach has occurred; (b) without penalty, withhold further delivery of the Products and other performance under this Agreement until such time as it has received confirmation to its satisfaction that no breach has or will occur; and/or (c) without penalty terminate this Agreement immediately under Section. You will indemnify and hold Zscaler harmless against any and all expenses, claims, losses or damages arising from or related to any breach of this Section or the cancellation of the Agreement for breach of this Section.

Upon Zscaler's request, You and Your Affiliates will complete and return a certification of compliance, in a form acceptable to Zscaler in its sole discretion, that You and Your Affiliates have complied with this Section and have read, understand, and agreed to comply with Zscaler’s anti-corruption policies. You will notify Your Affiliates of the requirements of this Section and provide anticorruption training to Your Affiliates.
