The SaaS comprise primarily of a web-based technology platform through which such content is delivered once Client initiates the process of sending such content. Although, Verifacto provides Client support and assistance with the content Client desires to transmit, Client remains solely responsible for the content of communications transmitted by Client or any other person Client permits to access the Services using the Services, and shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless Verifacto from and against all liabilities and costs (including attorneys’ fees) arising from any and all third-party claims by any person based upon the content of any such communications.
