You agree to indemnify and hold harmless BC Relations and its affiliates, and their respective members, directors, officers, managers, employees, stockholders, and agents for, from, and against all losses, expenses, damages, and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any violation by you of these Terms and Conditions or any breach by you of your representations and warranties hereunder.  BC Relations reserves the right to take over the exclusive defense of any claim for which it is entitled to indemnification under this paragraph.  In such event, you shall provide BC Relations with such cooperation as is reasonably requested by BC Relations.

At a set time every month, a dollar value of your contribution is determined by the amount and quality of exposure generated by our combined effort to reach the broader community. You can then decide whether to take payment in the form of crypto you wrote about (at current market rate), or gain even more exposure for your favorite project by waiving payment in exchange for leveraging the connections we have established with news networks via long-term relationships in the IR business for 12 years. If electing to receive crypto payment instead of distribution to 5,000+ news outlets via NetworkNewsWire distribution, a W9 will be required before payment. BC Relations will provide an IRS form 1099 at the end of the year reflecting all amounts paid for that year, if applicable.

The foregoing Terms and Conditions set forth the entire agreement and understanding between you and BC Relations as to the subject matter hereof.
