Further, if the reader is accessing the Work in his or her capacity as an employee, contractor, temporary staff, interagency assigned staff, or any other work-related arrangement or as a volunteer, regardless of compensation, whether domestic or foreign, for any work-related reason whatsoever, or if the reader’s access of the Work results in subsequent action of any kind by his or her employer, any other foreign or domestic government or corporate entity or entities (each, a “Beneficiary”) against the Indemnified Parties, by accessing this Work the reader (a) certifies that he or she possesses the legal authority to bind each Beneficiary to these Disclaimers and Indemnifications, and (b) hereby binds each Beneficiary to fully indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnified Parties from any and all Legal Actions.  For all matters of indemnification payments, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE; all Beneficiaries 1) will use their best possible efforts to timely remit payment of all legal and other expenses incurred by the Indemnified Parties within ten days of delivery of expenses; 2) will under no circumstances use any dispute to said expenses as grounds for withholding payment; and 3) acknowledge their joint and several responsibility for any and all Indemnified Parties’ expenses resulting from Legal Actions.

Not to be relied upon.  Anyone reading this Work is hereby directed to do their own research, planning, strategizing, and activities based on their own research and decisions.  In no way should any portion of this Work be relied upon or construed as a reliable, independent, verified source of any advice or guidance regarding anything whatsoever.  The reader acknowledges that he/she will under no circumstances rely on this Work, or any part herein, for any actions taken or not taken, or any occurrences which may transpire.

No legal advice.  The author is not a lawyer.  The reader acknowledges that the author is providing no legal advice herein, and that he/she will in no way rely on any content herein regarding any legal matter which may arise.  The reader will seek independent, qualified legal counsel for any legal matter he/she may have or any advice he/she may need.

Fair Use copyright disclaimer.  This Work and its contents fall under Fair Use as described in Section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976 and as codified in 17 U.S.C. § 107.  Allowance is made for “Fair Use” for purposes of commentary, research, entertainment, and educational purposes.  Fair Use is permitted by copyright statute that otherwise may be determined to be infringement.  Educational use tips the balance in favor of Fair Use.  All credit and rights for all incorporated elements of copyrighted material are retained by the originators, and no copyright infringement of any incorporated copyrighted work is intended.

Severable terms.  If any term or condition within these Disclaimers and Indemnifications are found unenforceable, all other enforceable terms maintain their fullest degree of legal force and effect.

Legal claim venue; limit of claims.  The reader acknowledges and accepts that any legal action against the Indemnified Parties must be exercised in the venue of the author’s choosing.  The economic claim of any legal action, including all punitive and other economic claims and penalties, will not exceed the total cost of materials purchased from the Indemnified Parties.
