Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in [Section 28] or this Section 30, Tenant shall not be responsible for, and the indemnification and hold harmless obligation set forth in this paragraph shall not apply to # contamination in the Premises which Tenant can prove to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction existed in the Premises immediately prior to the Commencement Date, or # the presence of any Hazardous Materials in the Premises which Tenant can prove to Landlord’s reasonable satisfaction migrated from outside of the Premises into the Premises, unless in either case, the presence of such Hazardous Materials # is the result of a breach by Tenant of any of its obligations under this Lease, or # was caused, contributed to or exacerbated by Tenant or any Tenant Party.
