If a court or other decision-maker should determine that any provisions of this Sales Agreement is overbroad or unreasonable, such provision shall be given effect to the maximum extent possible by narrowing or enforcing in part that aspect of the provision found overbroad or unreasonable.
  3. For the purposes of the sections of this Sales Agreement headed ‘INDEMNIFCIATION’ and ‘LIABILITY’ the term ‘Legalease’ shall extend to include any contractor or third party who has provided information on a confidential basis as part of the Research or who has been used by Legalease for the preparation, researching, processing, analysing, hosting, displaying or publication of the Research, to the intent that such contractor or third party shall not be liable to the Client other than as set out therein.
