19.1 In General
You will pay the Company, its affiliates, licensors, and service providers,
and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors,
suppliers, successors, and assigns for any loss of theirs that is caused by your violation of this
agreement or your use of the Website, including your User Contributions, any use of the Website’s
content, services, and products other than as expressly authorized in this agreement or your use of
any information obtained from the Website. But you are not required to pay if the loss was caused by
the Company’s intentional misconduct.
“Loss” means an amount that any indemnified party is legally responsible for or
pay in any form. Amounts include, for example, a judgment, a settlement, a fine, damages,
injunctive relief, staff compensation, a decrease in property value, and expenses for defending
against a claim for a loss (including fees for legal counsel, expert witnesses, and other
advisers). A loss can be tangible or intangible; can arise from bodily injury, property damage,
or other causes; can be based on tort, breach of contract, or any other theory of recovery; and
includes incidental, direct, and consequential damages.
A loss is “caused by” an event if the loss would not have happened without the
event, even if the event is not a proximate cause of the loss.
19.3 Duty to Notify You
Any indemnified party seeking indemnification will notify you before the 30th day after that party
knew or should reasonably have known of a claim for a loss that you might be obligated to pay. But
the indemnified party’s failure to timely notify you does not end your obligation, except if that
failure prejudices your ability to defend a claim or mitigate losses.
19.4 Legal Defense of a Claim
The indemnified party has control over defending a claim for a loss (including settling it), unless
that party directs you to control the defense. If the indemnified party directs you to control the
defense, you will not settle any litigation without that party’s written consent if the settlement
(1) imposes a penalty or limitation on that party, (2) admits that party’s fault, or (3) does not
fully release that party from liability. The parties will cooperate with each other in good faith on
19.5 No Exclusivity
The indemnified party’s rights under this section 19 do not affect other rights that party might

originally generated and kept in printed form. Any additional rules or terms on the Website will
govern the items to which they pertain.
The Company may change this agreement on one or more occasions. The Company will try to post
changes on the Website at least 15 days before they become effective. Changes will become effective
on the “last updated” date stated at the top of this page.

right, remedy, or condition. A waiver made in writing on one occasion is effective only in that

any future occasion or against any other person.
