The Investee agrees that it alone shall bear all responsibility for the content of the Pitch, the Warranties and any disclosures in respect of such Warranties, and shall indemnify and hold Konvi harmless from any loss, liability, cost or expense resulting directly or indirectly from the same.

7.2. The Investee warrants, represents and undertakes that:
