You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold us harmless, including our subsidiaries, affiliates, and all of our respective officers, agents, partners, and employees, from and against any loss, damage, liability, claim, or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses, made by third party due to or arising out of: (1) use of the Platforms, (2) breach of these Terms, (3) any breach of your representations and warranties set forth in these Terms or the Documentation, (4) your violation of the rights of a third party, including but not limited to intellectual property rights, or (5) any overt harmful act toward any other use of the Third Party Features with whom you connected via the Website, the App and the Platforms.
