Your Indemnification & Release of Werner


You shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Werner and its officers, directors, shareholders, employees, independent contractors, agents, representatives and affiliates from and against all claims and expenses, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees, arising out of, or attributable to: (i) any breach or violation of this Agreement by you or someone using your Account; (ii) your failure to provide accurate, complete and current Registration Data requested or required by Werner; (iii) your or someone using your Account’s access or use of the Site or Services; (iv) access or use of the Site or Services under any Access Credentials that may be issued to you; (v) your or someone using your Account’s transmissions, submissions or postings (e.g., your own User Generated Content); (vi) your or someone using your Account’s purchase of any Products through this Site or Services; and/or (vii) any personal injury or property damage caused by you or someone using your Account. Upon learning of any claim, action or proceeding, Werner will undertake to promptly notify you. Werner reserves the right to take over the exclusive defense and control of any matter for which you would be required to indemnify Werner and you agree to cooperate with such defense. You agree not to settle any such matter without the prior written consent of Werner.


You release Werner (and its officers, agents, directors, subsidiaries, and employees) from claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, arising out of or in any way related with any dispute between you or your Account and one or more users.

Amendments will take effect immediately upon Werner posting the updated Agreement on the Site or through the Services. You are encouraged to revisit this Agreement from time to time in order to review any changes that have been made. The date on which this Agreement was last updated will be noted immediately above this Agreement.

If at any time you become no longer able to comply with the terms of the current version of this Agreement, you must terminate this Agreement and immediately stop using all Accounts as well as the Site and Services. You acknowledge and agree that you are not entitled to any refund for any amounts paid or pre-paid in connection with the Account prior to termination of this Agreement.


Werner’s Remedies


You acknowledge that Werner may be irreparably damaged if this Agreement is not specifically enforced, and damages at law would be an inadequate remedy. Therefore, in the event of a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you or someone using your Account, Werner shall be entitled, in addition to all rights and remedies, to an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach, without being required to show any actual damage or to post an injunction bond, and/or to a decree for specific performance of the provisions of this Agreement. For purposes of this Section, you agree that any action or proceeding with regard to such injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach may be brought where you reside or in the courts of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, or the United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin. You consent to the jurisdiction of such court and waive any objection to the laying of venue of any such action or proceeding in such court. You agree that service of any court paper may be effected on such party by mail or in such other manner as may be provided under applicable laws, rules of procedure or local rules.


Governing Law


You agree that: (i) the Site and Services shall be deemed solely based in the State of Wisconsin; and (ii) the Site shall be deemed a passive site that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over Werner, its affiliates and assigns, either specific or general, in jurisdictions other than the State of Wisconsin. This Agreement and the relationship between you and Werner is to be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of Wisconsin, without regard for principles of conflicts of laws. Any civil action, claim, dispute or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement, except for an injunctive action regarding a breach or threatened breach of any provision of this Agreement by you as provided above, shall be brought in the courts of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, or the United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin and you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction and forum of the same. Werner’s failure to enforce any right or provision of this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.


Miscellaneous
