CHANGES TO OUR SITES
We may make improvements and/or changes to a Site, add new features, or terminate a Site at any time without notice.

Some jurisdictions may not allow the exclusions and disclaimers of certain implied warranties, so some of the provisions of this section may not apply to you.
The Sites and this Agreement are in effect until terminated by us. In addition to any right or remedy that may be available to us under applicable law, we may suspend, limit or terminate all or a portion of your access to the Sites or any of their features at any time with or without notice and with or without cause, including, without limitation, if we believe that you have violated or acted inconsistently with the letter or spirit of this Agreement.
The provisions of this Agreement concerning intellectual property rights and indemnity, as well as any other provisions that by their nature should survive, shall survive any such termination.
You agree that if your use of a Site is terminated pursuant to this Agreement, you will not attempt to use the Site under any name, real or assumed. You further agree that if you violate this restriction after your use of a Site is terminated, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from any and all liability that we may incur therefor. We reserve the right to have all violators prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Politicom and its partners, officers, employees, agents and contractors from any and all claims, damages, losses, costs (including without limitation reasonable attorneys’ fees) or other expenses that arise directly or indirectly out of or from: (1) your breach of any provision of this Agreement; (2) your activities in connection with a Site; or (3) unsolicited information you provide to us through a Site.
