This indemnity applies whether or not legal proceedings are instituted and, if such proceedings are instituted, irrespective of the means, manner or nature of any settlement, compromise or determination. This indemnity shall survive the expiration or termination of this Licence.
  11. The Licensee is solely responsible for any content that it loads into or creates within Service.

      4. upon written request, return or destroy all copies of the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information that are in its possession or control.
    3. Licensor may create aggregated, redacted, or anonymised forms of Licensee’s information which does not disclose any of the confidential information supplied by Licensee, to a third party (Anonymised Data). Anonymised Data will be used solely for Licensor’s internal development purposes.
