27. Standard Clip-Art and Photos
As part of the Service, SiteCube provides its Members with standard clip-art and photos to incorporate into their Member Web Sites. In using the clip-art and photos, Member is governed by an Image License Agreement with a Third Party Image Vendor ("TPIV"), the supplier of the clip-art and photos, which is incorporated into this Agreement. Member understands that the Image License Agreement is a separate contractual relationship between Member and the TPIV, and that Member, and not SiteCube, is responsible for all liability, and obligations in connection with that relationship. SiteCube is not a party to, and shall not be involved in or responsible for, transactions, agreements, and/or disputes between Member and the TPIV ("TPIV Dispute"). In the event of a TPIV Dispute, Member hereby releases SiteCube (and its officers, directors, agents, and employees) from claims, demands, and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected and unsuspected, disclosed and undisclosed, arising out of or in any connected with such disputes.
