  4. The owner shall not be liable for any damage or loss made whatsoever by breakdown or other defects in the equipment or other circumstances beyond the owner’s control. The Renter shall indemnify the Owner in respect of all costs, claims, expenses, and demands which it may suffer or incur and which arise directly or indirectly out of the use of the equipment during the period of hire. The Owner reserves the right to charge the Renter in partial or in full settlement of any such claim.
