Interest and Principal Payments; Rewards
To the extent that any of the Campaigns involves payments of interest or principal amounts and/or dividends (together, the “Payments”) and/or offers other non-financial rewards (the “Rewards”) for an investment or donation to a Club, we will only promote and advertise Campaigns and will not directly offer or fulfil such Payments or Rewards.

If you do something that gets us sued, or break any of the promises you make in this agreement, you agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Tifosy, its affiliates, and each of its and its affiliates’ employees, contractors, directors, suppliers, and representatives, and the Clubs from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and other legal costs, that arise from or relate to your use or misuse of, or access to, the Services and Content, or otherwise from your User Submissions, violation of the Terms and Conditions, or infringement by you, or any third party using your account, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity. We reserve the right to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to this indemnification clause, in which case you agree that you’ll cooperate and help us in asserting any defenses.
Limitation of Liability
To the fullest extent permitted by law, in no event shall Tifosy, nor its directors, employees, agents, partners, suppliers, or content providers, be liable under contract, tort, strict liability, negligence, or any other legal or equitable theory (i) for any lost profits, data loss, cost of procurement of substitute goods or services, or special, indirect, incidental, punitive, or consequential damages of any kind whatsoever, substitute goods or services (however arising), (ii) for any bugs, viruses, trojan horses, or the like (regardless of the source of origination), or (iii) for any direct damages, (iv) resulting from your access to, use of, or inability to access or use the Services, and (v) for any conduct of content of or any information from any third party, including the Clubs, on the Site or otherwise in relation to the Services. In no event shall Tifosy's liability for direct damages be in excess of (in the aggregate) one hundred pounds sterling (£100.00).
