In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, Protegrity will not be responsible for any loss or damage that could result from interception by third parties of any information that may be provided by you or made available to you via this website.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Protegrity and its officers, directors, members, partners, stockholders, affiliates, employees, and agents from and against any loss, damage, expense, liability, claim, action or demand (including, without limitation, reasonable legal and accounting fees) that Protegrity or any such person may incur arising from your use of this website, including but not limited to, any claims alleging a breach by you of these Terms of Use.

You acknowledge that a violation or attempted violation of these Terms of Use will cause such damage to Protegrity as will be irreparable, the exact amount of which would be difficult to ascertain and for which there will be no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, you agree that Protegrity shall be entitled as a matter of right to an injunction issued by any court of competent jurisdiction restraining such violation or attempted violation of these terms and conditions by you, as well as to recover from you any and all costs and expenses sustained or incurred by Protegrity in obtaining such an injunction, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees. You agree that no bond or other security shall be required in connection with such injunction.
