For the purposes of this section 21, the term “Registry Operator” includes Verisign and each of the Registry Operator’s stockholders, directors, employees, members, subcontractors, the TMCH and each of their respective directors, agents and employees.

22. Indemnity by You: Without limiting the generality of any other provision of this Agreement, You will hold the Registry Operator and Registry Verification Agents harmless from claims filed or disputes initiated by third parties, and You will compensate the Registry Operator and Registry Verification Agents for any costs or expenses incurred or damages for which the Registry Operator or Registry Verification Agent may be held liable as a result of third parties taking action against the Registry Operator or Registry Verification Agent on the grounds that an Application for or the Registration, DPML Block, or use of the SLD (defined in the Registry Terms and Conditions) by You infringes the rights of a third party. For the purposes of this section 22, the term “Registry Operator” includes Verisign and each of the Registry Operator’s stockholders, directors, employees, members, subcontractors, the TMCH and each of their respective directors, agents and employees. This section 22 will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason.

You acknowledge that Verisign and each Registry Operator and Registry Verification Agent will rely on their third party beneficiary rights under this Agreement in agreeing to Webnames.ca being a registrar for Verisign TLDs and in providing services to You or for Your benefit. For greater certainty, You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is for the benefit of Verisign and each Registry Operator and Registry Verification Agent but does not give rise to any obligations on the part of Verisign or any Registry Operator or Registry Verification Agent. Verisign and each Registry Operator and Registry Verification Agent may assign their respective rights and benefits under this Agreement to a subsequent registry operator or registry verification agent of a Verisign TLD.

(b) Verisign and Registry Operators and Registry Verification Agents and their affiliates and their respective managers, directors, employees, contractors and agents (including the TMCH and the Auction Provider) are not parties to this Agreement.
