When we may be involved in a suit involving a third party and which is related to our Service(s) to you under these Agreements, we may seek written assurances from you in which you promise to defend, indemnify and hold us harmless from the costs and liabilities described in this paragraph. Such written assurances may include, in our sole discretion, the posting of a performance bond(s) or other guarantees reasonably calculated to guarantee payment. Your failure to provide such assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of these Agreements by you and may, in our sole discretion, result in loss of your right to control the disposition of domain name services for which you are the registrant and in relation to which we are the registrar of record. Moreover, should we be forced to defend ourselves in any action or legal proceeding in connection with any Whois Privacy Services provided to you, you shall have sole responsibility to defend us against any such claim by legal counsel of our choosing. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the UDRP. The terms of this paragraph will survive any termination or cancellation of the Agreements. Moreover, you agree to release, defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Primary and Backend Service Providers, and their parent companies, subsidiaries, affiliates, shareholders, agents, directors, officers and employees and Your registrar, from and against any and all claims, demands, liabilities, losses, damages or costs, including reasonable attorney's fees, arising out of or related in any way to the Agreements, the web sites of the Service Providers, your Account, and/or your use of your Protected Domain.
