The List Renter agrees to defend and indemnify ABAI and its officers, directors, employees, and agents from and against any and all costs, losses, claims, liabilities, actions, fines, expenses, penalties, and damages (including attorneys' fees and court costs) incurred by ABAI in connection with or resulting from (a) the List Renter's use of the mailing list, (b) any mailing or other solicitation (including oral) made by the List Renter to any person named in the mailing list, and (c) any claim brought by a person named in the mailing list as a result of any mailing or other solicitation (including oral) made by the List Renter.
ABAI reserves the right to reject any request for rental of the mailing list that does not conform to the standards, principles, and ethics of the association.
The list renter and mail/print house guarantee that all names and addresses furnished are provided on a rental basis for one-time use only. The list renter and mail/print house agree not to reproduce, reuse, or resell the mailing list in any form; enter it into a computer database; or use it any other way than provided for in the initial agreement. Unauthorized reuse will be billed at double the regular rental charge.
The List Renter agrees that only the sample mailing piece that has been approved by ABAI (List Owner) is the actual and only mailing piece that will be mailed. The mailing list is being sold "as is" and "whereas" in its present condition. ABAI makes no representations or warranties regarding the mailing list and the correctness of any information contained in the mailing list, including, but not limited to, whether any person named in the mailing list is currently a member of ABAI or whether such person's address is correct.
Note: Although any individual may rent the mailing list under the stipulations and limitations described in the contract, the association wishes to emphasize two important considerations: first, in no case may the List Renter of the list explicitly or implicitly communicate, by omission or commission (e.g., "Dear ABAI Member…") that ABAI or its members endorse the content of the mailing. Second, in addition to the requirements of the agreement, the purpose of the rental must conform to the ethical principles of the association and to general cultural standards for fair practice. The latter includes such matters as accuracy in representation, respect for persons with disabilities, and sensitivity to social and ethnic diversity. The association respects the concerns and opinions of all its members and requires the same from renters of the mailing list.
