INDEMNIFICATION You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless BlackBox and its owners, managers, affiliates, subsidiaries and distribution partners and their respective owners, officers, managers, directors, employees and/or agents (collectively, “BlackBox Indemnitees”) from and against any and all claims, damages, obligations, losses, liabilities, costs or debt, and expenses (including but not limited to attorneys fees) arising from: (i) your use of and access to the Service; (ii) your violation of any term of these Terms; (iii) your violation, alleged or actual, of any third party right, including without limitation any copyright, property, or privacy right; (iv) any claim that any of User Data/Material you upload and publish on the Service caused damage to a third party; or (v) your gross negligence or willful malfeasance (collectively, “Claims”).

You shall not, without the prior express written approval of BlackBox, 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 any BlackBox Indemnitee. This defense and indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of these Terms and your use of the Service. Although BlackBox will not be liable for your losses caused by any unauthorized use of your BlackBox account, you may be liable for the losses of BlackBox or others due to such unauthorized use.
