(2) If he or she is not a director, to such further extent as may be provided by the articles of incorporation, the bylaws, a resolution of the board of directors, or contract except for liability arising out of conduct that constitutes:

(A) Appropriation, in violation of his or her duties, of any business opportunity of the corporation;

(B) Acts or omissions which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;

(C) The types of liability set forth in Code Section 14-2-832; or

(D) Receipt of an improper personal benefit.

(b) The provisions of paragraph (2) of subsection (a) of this Code section shall apply to an officer who is also a director if the sole basis on which he or she is made a party to the proceeding is an act or omission solely as an officer.

(c) An officer of a corporation who is not a director is entitled to mandatory indemnification under Code Section 14-3-852, and may apply to a court under Code Section 14-3-854 for indemnification or advances for expenses, in each case to the same extent to which a director may be entitled to indemnification or advances for expenses under those provisions.
