The Corporation shall pay or reimburse the reasonable expenses incurred in defending any such action, suit or proceeding in advance of its final disposition if the Corporation has received an undertaking by the person receiving such payment or reimbursement to repay all amounts advanced if it should be ultimately determined that he or she is not entitled to be indemnified under this Article VIII or otherwise. The rights to indemnification and advancement conferred in this Article VIII shall be contract rights and shall become vested by virtue of the director's or officer's service at the time when the state of facts giving rise to the claim occurred.
