Default Terror Films

I'm considering submitting to this company, just read their submission policy (this is my first time querying and ready to start marketing the screenplay so i'm new to this area) on their policy it states

BY MAKING A SUBMISSION TO US, YOU WILL BE DEEMED TO HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THAT UNLESS WE ENTER INTO A SEPARATE WRITTEN AGREEMENT, ON PAPER, THAT IS MANUALLY SIGNED BY YOU AND OUR AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE, WE HAVE NO OBLIGATION TO YOU, WE WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU FOR ANY USE OR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR SUBMISSION AND YOU HAVE NO CLAIM AGAINST US OR ANYONE ELSE BASED ON OR ARISING OUT OF YOUR SUBMISSION OR ANY USE OR DISCLOSURE THEREOF (AND YOU IRREVOCABLY RELEASE US FROM ANY SUCH CLAIM).

Am I right in thinking that the "We will have no liability to you for ANY use of your submission" is basically we can do anything with this submission and you waiver your rights even if we use this exact script?

I understand they need to legally cover themselves from lawsuits but "any use or disclosure" seems a bit dodgy to me.

They're legit, I wouldn't worry about some legal mumbo jumbo. Basically, its a way for them to accept unsolicited material.
