This Site gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

Other jurisdictions allow limitations and exclusions subject to certain conditions. In such a case the limitations and exclusions set out in this Contract shall apply to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of such applicable jurisdictions. Your statutory rights as a consumer, if any, are not affected by these provisions, and we do not seek to exclude or limit liability for fraudulent misrepresentation.

You will indemnify and defend Benovate from any loss, liability, claim, demand, damage or expense (including reasonable legal fees) asserted by any third party relating in any way to your Use or breach of this Contract.  Any settlement you agree to shall not, under any circumstances, impose an unindemnified obligation on us without our prior explicit written consent.
