3. Gifting Service and Content
 
You (and not Smartgift or a Third-Party Vendor) are solely responsible for the Gifting Service and Content, including but not limited to product warranties, product claims, maintenance and support services, other third-party claims including but not limited to those related to infringement of a party's intellectual property rights, compliance with any applicable law or regulation including but not limited to those relating to privacy and data collection, and ensuring that users are neither restricted parties according to any U.S. government list nor located in a country that is subject to a U.S. Government embargo or "terrorist supporting" designation. For a claim related to any of the aforementioned, You (and not Smartgift or a Third-Party Vendor) will be solely responsible for its investigation, defense, settlement, and discharge.
 
4. Other Requirements
 
You acknowledge and agree that (a) information transmitted or gathered in connection with the Service or the Gifting Service may be used in an aggregated and anonymized manner; (b) Third-Party Vendors and their affiliates are third party beneficiaries of these Terms, and that such entities will have (and be deemed to have accepted) the right to enforce them against You; (c) as between You and Smartgift, You are solely responsible for any errors, issues, or downtime caused by or attributable to Your (or Your agents) customization of the Gifting Service; (d) by virtue of their ability to access the Gifting Service, users may be subject to terms and conditions similar to these Terms; (e) Your Gifting Service or other terms, if any, generally binding users, shall incorporate and adapt (to as great an extent as possible), and be at least as restrictive and protective of Smartgift and Third-Party Vendors, as each of the provisions identified in this Section 4, and each of Smartgift and Third-Party Vendors and their affiliates shall be third-party beneficiaries to such terms, which shall indicate that such entities will have (and be deemed to have accepted) the right to enforce them against users; and (f) You shall not include, modify, or apply any terms, limitations, or disclaimers in any agreements with users that contradict or supersede either these Terms or any minimum user terms that Smartgift incorporates as part of the Gifting Service.
