Save as expressly set out in these Horizon Terms, Diageo gives no warranty nor representation, either express or implied, of any kind in respect of Horizon or the Horizon Content or their use.
The Authorised User accepts that Diageo shall have no responsibility for any interruptions or capacity constraints affecting Horizon arising from any cause, including without limitation constraints arising from telecommunications networks or service providers and reasonable interruptions for testing, repair, maintenance and service integration.
- it shall use its reasonable endeavours not to introduce any software virus or other contaminant (including, without limitation, bugs, worms, Trojan horses or any other self propagating or other such program) into Horizon that may infect, damage or corrupt the Authorised User's systems; and

Diageo agrees to indemnify and keep indemnified the Authorised User and its Affiliates, and their respective directors and employees (each an “Authorised User”) against any and all claims, liabilities, damages and losses and any and all third party claims and costs and/or expenses (including without limitation legal costs and expenses) incurred by the Authorised User arising out of or in connection with:
Subject to Clause 8.6, in no event shall any Diageo Group Member be liable for any special, indirect, consequential, punitive or exemplary damages, even if the Diageo Group Member has been advised of the possibility of such loss or damages.
The exclusions set out in Clause 8.5 shall not apply to sums for which Diageo is liable to indemnify the Authorised User pursuant to Clause 8.4 which have either been paid pursuant to a damages award by a competent court in respect of a third party claim or paid by an Authorised User (with Diageo’s prior written approval) in settlement of a third party claim.
- any breach by Diageo of its obligations under these Horizon Terms; and
- any third party claims alleging that use by Diageo of any Media Asset (other than Work in Progress) uploaded or supplied for upload onto Horizon by or on behalf of the Authorised User exceeds the usage rights acquired from third parties in respect of the Media Asset, where such use does not correspond to the associated Metadata and such Metadata is correct.
The indemnity in Clause 8.4 in respect of third party claims and any associated liabilities, damages, losses, costs and/or expenses (including without limitation legal costs and expenses) is conditional upon the Authorised User:
Where any claim or dispute arises in connection with any of the above, Diageo’s liability under Clause 8.4 shall be limited to the greater of (i) £5,000,000; or (ii) the amount of any cap on any Diageo Group Member’s liability under any agreement relating to the Authorised User’s or its Affiliates’ supply of services to any Diageo Group Member which is in force at the date of the claim or dispute. For the avoidance of doubt, this limit is not an aggregate but shall apply separately to each individual dispute or claim. Nothing in these Horizon Terms shall exclude or limit the liability of any Diageo Group Member in respect of death or personal injury caused by negligence of a Diageo Group Member.
- promptly notifying Diageo of any actual or threatened claim;
- making no admissions without Diageo’s prior written consent; and

- Any provision of these Horizon Terms may, in accordance with the provisions of the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999, be enforced by any Diageo Group Member.
