3. Indemnity. Customer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold Quantcast harmless from any judgments, damages, loss, liability, fines, or costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from Customer’s breach of a term of this Agreement or Customer’s use of the Solution if not in compliance with the terms of the Agreement. Quantcast will have no obligation or liability hereunder where the claim results from any combination with, addition to, or modification of the Choice Tag.

Quantcast assumes no liability on behalf of Customer, any of Customer’s third party vendors, or any other entities for acting or not acting on Choice Signals, or if Customer or any of Customer’s third party vendors or any other entities bypass or otherwise interfere with the technical restrictions included in the Solution as provided by Quantcast. Quantcast makes no warranty that the Solution, including the Choice Tag, will (a) be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis, (b) not cause any latency or processing delays, or (c) meets any legal requirements around consent or data protection. Quantcast assumes no liability for Customer’s reliance on the Solution. The foregoing exclusions and disclaimers are an essential part of this Agreement and formed a basis for enabling Quantcast to offer the Solution to Customer. Some jurisdictions do not allow exclusion of certain warranties so this disclaimer may not apply to Customer in full.
5. Termination. Unless otherwise terminated as set forth herein, this Agreement will remain in full force and effect while Customer uses the Solution. Customer may terminate this Agreement by removing the Choice Tag from Customer’s websites or apps, as applicable, or notifying Quantcast of Customer’s termination of this Agreement at any time in writing.

Quantcast will not be liable to Customer or any third party for termination of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the above, Sections 3 and 7 to 10 will survive termination.
6. Modification of the Agreement. Quantcast reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to modify or discontinue the Solution without notice. Quantcast may also modify this Agreement from time to time. If the modified Agreement is not acceptable to Customer, Customer may terminate Customer’s account within 30 days by following the procedure in Section 5. Use of the Solution, after 30 days, will constitute Customer’s acceptance thereof.
7. Limitation on Liability. IN NO EVENT WILL QUANTCAST BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL LOSS, EXEMPLARY DAMAGE, INCIDENTAL LOSS, SPECIAL DAMAGE OR LOSS, LOST PROFIT, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES ARISING FROM CUSTOMER’S USE OF THE SOLUTION, EVEN IF QUANTCAST HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
