Further, GDR gives no express warranties, guarantees or conditions regarding any information provided by any participant in the GDR registry and the associated Services. GDR provides all information as it was provided to GDR.

Any warranties, guarantees or conditions which are established, defined and/or acknowledged by any User of the website are exclusively the warranties, guarantees or conditions of the offering party.

Indemnity

You agree that you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless GDR and its officers, directors, employees, agents, successors and assigns (each, an “Indemnified Person”) from any and all losses, liabilities, damages (including taxes), and all related costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and disbursements and costs of investigation, litigation, settlement, judgment, interest and penalties (collectively, “Losses”), and threatened Losses due to, arising from or relating to third party claims, demands, actions or threat of action (whether in law, equity or in an alternative proceeding) arising from or relating to your breach of any warranties in this Agreement; any actual or alleged infringement, violation or misappropriation of the Intellectual Property Rights of any third person by (i) any Deliverables provided by either party, or (ii) either party’s use of those Deliverables, without alteration and modification, in the manner anticipated by this Agreement;  either party’s actual or alleged breach of the website’s privacy policy; or grossly negligent, willful or reckless acts or omissions of or by either party (each, an “Indemnified Claim”) unless any such indemnified claim results from the gross negligence, fraud, or willful misconduct of the other party. No settlement or compromise that imposes any liability or obligation on any Indemnified Person will be made without the Indemnified Person’s prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld). If you fail to defend an Indemnified Person as provided in herein after reasonable notice of an Indemnified Claim, you will be bound to indemnify and reimburse the Indemnified Person for any Losses incurred by any Indemnified Person, in its sole discretion, to defend, settle or compromise the Indemnified Claim, and by the determination of facts common to an action and subsequent action to enforce the Indemnified Person’s reimbursement rights.

Severability

A court may hold that we cannot enforce a part of this contract as written. If this happens, then GDR will replace that part with terms that most closely match the intent of the part that we cannot enforce. The rest of this contract will not change. This is the entire contract between GDR and us regarding use of the website. It supersedes any prior contract or statements regarding your use of the service.
