17. Indemnity

You will indemnify, defend and hold SHARECG and its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, successors, agents, affiliates, subsidiaries and applicable third parties (e.g., relevant content creators, advertisers, syndication partners, referral partners, service providers, licensors, licensees, consultants and contractors) (collectively, the “SHARECG Entities”) harmless from and against any claims, liabilities, losses, costs, damages or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) directly or indirectly arising out of or in any way relating to: (i) Your gross negligence or willful misconduct; (ii) Your Content (if You are a Submitter), Your Ads (if You are a Sponsor), Your Member Comments (if You are a Community Member) or any other information or material You submit during Participation; (iii) Your conduct, including Your use of SHARECG Products or any other actions related to Your Participation; (iv) any actual violation or breach of this Agreement, or allegation of such violation or breach by a third party, including breach of any representation made by You hereunder; or (v) the alleged or actual violation or infringement of any intellectual property, privacy, publicity, confidentiality or proprietary rights of any third-party as a result of any action or Participation by You (collectively, the “Claims”).

SHARECG shall have the right to withhold any payments due to You, if any, to offset liabilities and expenses covered hereunder. SHARECG shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to select its own legal counsel to defend SHARECG from any Claims (but by doing so shall not excuse Your indemnity obligations) and You shall be solely responsible for the payment of all SHARECG’s reasonable attorneys’ fees incurred in connection therewith. You shall notify SHARECG immediately if You become aware of any actual or potential claims, suits, actions, allegations or charges that could affect Your or SHARECG’s ability to fully perform their respective duties or to exercise its rights under this Agreement. You shall not, without the prior written approval of SHARECG, settle, dispose or enter into any proposed settlement or resolution of any Claim (whether having been finally adjudicated or otherwise) brought against You, if such settlement or resolution results in any obligation or liability for SHARECG.

20. General

(a) Governing Law; Arbitration. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, excluding its conflicts of laws principles. The United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is excluded and does not apply to this Agreement. Except as expressly set forth in subsection (b) below (“Injunctive Relief”), any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this Agreement to arbitrate, shall decided by binding arbitration. The arbitrator shall apply California law to the merits of any dispute or claim. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and unappealable. In the event any action is brought by either party in connection with this Agreement, the substantially prevailing party will be entitled to recover from the other party all the costs, attorneys’ fees and other expenses reasonably incurred by such party. All offers, promises, conduct and statements, whether oral or written, made in the course of the arbitration by any of the parties, their agents, employees, experts and attorneys are confidential, privileged and inadmissible for any purpose, including impeachment, in any litigation or other proceeding involving the parties, provided that evidence that is otherwise admissible or discoverable shall not be rendered inadmissible or non-discoverable as a result of its use in the arbitration.

(b) Injunctive Relief. Notwithstanding the “Governing Law; Arbitration” section above, You agree that certain breaches by You would cause irreparable injury to SHARECG, for which there are no adequate remedies at law, and nothing in this Section shall be deemed to prevent or delay SHARECG’s attempt to seek a temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, specific performance or other interim or conservatory relief from any court having jurisdiction, without any abridgment of the power of the arbitrator, for Your breach of: (i) Section (“SHARECG’s Ownership Rights”); (ii) Section (“Copyright Infringement”); and (iii) Section (“Confidential Information”).

(c) Assignment. You may not assign or transfer this Agreement, in whole or in part, by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of SHARECG. Any attempted assignment in violation of this Section will be null and void and of no force or effect. SHARECG may assign this Agreement freely at any time without notice. Subject to the foregoing, this Agreement will bind and inure to the benefit of each party’s permitted successors and assigns.

(d) Waiver; Severability. The failure to require performance of any provision shall not affect SHARECG’s right to require performance at any time thereafter, nor shall a waiver of any breach or default of this Agreement constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach or default or a waiver of the provision itself. If any portion of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable, such portion will be modified to reflect the parties’ intention and only to the extent necessary to make it enforceable, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement will remain in full force and effect.

(e) Export Restrictions/Legal Compliance. You agree to comply with all United States and other applicable export laws and related restrictions and regulations, and not to directly or indirectly export, provide or otherwise make available the services and products of SHARECG in violation of any such export laws, unless any required prior authorizations or necessary approvals are obtained by You, at Your expense, from the applicable United States or foreign authority.

(f) Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between You and SHARECG regarding this subject matter, and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements or understandings, written and oral, between You and SHARECG relating to this subject matter. You may be subject to additional terms and conditions that may apply when You use or access certain features of the SHARECG File Sharing Program.

(g) Relationship. You and SHARECG are independent contractors, and this Agreement, including but not limited to submission or distribution of any Content or Ads, will not, in whole or in part, establish any relationship of partnership, joint venture, employment, franchise or agency between the You and SHARECG. Neither party will have the power to bind the other or incur obligations on the other’s behalf without the other’s prior written consent. Neither party is authorized to act as an agent or representative of the other or for or on behalf of the other party in any capacity other than as expressly set forth in this Agreement. Neither party shall in any manner advertise, represent or hold itself (or any of its agents) out as so acting or being authorized so to act, or incur any liabilities or obligations on behalf of, or in the name of, the other party, unless specifically provided for in this Agreement. Moreover, each party shall be solely responsible for the payment of all of its own taxes, assessments and all other similar withholdings from or assessments on any monies paid hereunder or in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby.

(h) Reserved Rights. SHARECG reserves the right to change, in whole or in part, the names, logos, presentation and display of the SHARECG Member Agreement, the SHARECG File Sharing Program and the SHARECG Products at any time in its sole discretion.
