Indemnification; Hold Harmless
You shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless DSI, including, without limitation, directors, staff, agents and representatives, (each, an “Indemnitee”) against any costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), liabilities, and/or damages incurred or suffered by DSI, or awarded or imposed against the Indemnitee by a court or governmental agency, or otherwise paid in settlement, in connection with: (a) a claim that is related to any misconduct, negligence, or breach of this agreement by you; and/or (b) breach by you of applicable laws or regulations.
If any provision of the agreement is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, then: (a) the remaining provisions of this agreement shall remain in full force and effect; and (b) such provision will be ineffective solely as to such jurisdiction (and only to the extent and for the duration of such illegality, invalidity or unenforceability), and will be substituted (in respect of such jurisdiction) with a valid, legal and enforceable provision that most closely approximates the original legal intent and economic impact of such provision.
Waiver and Remedies

Any waiver granted hereunder must be in writing, duly signed by the waiving party, and will be valid only in the specific instance in which given. Except as may be expressly provided otherwise in the agreement, no right or remedy conferred upon or reserved by either party under the agreement is intended to be, or will be deemed, exclusive of any other right or remedy under the agreement, at law, or in equity, but will be cumulative of such other rights and remedies.
