It is also the responsibility of the licensee to ascertain their suitability for any and all uses made by the licensee. The measures are not diagnostic tools sand should not be used as such. The measures are not substitutes for an independent professional evaluation. Any and all reliance on the measures by the licensee is at the licensee’s sole risk and is the licensee’s sole responsibility. Licensee indemnifies PCOMS and its officers, directors, employees, representatives, and authors of the measures against, and hold them harmless from, any and all claims and law suits arising from or relating to any use of or reliance on the measures and related products provided by PCOMS. This obligation to indemnify and hold harmless includes a promise to pay any and all judgments, damages, attorney’s fees, costs and expenses arising from any such claim or lawsuit.

This license agreement, and sections 7 and 8 in particular, define a mutually agreed upon allocation of risk. The fee reflects such allocation of risk.
