In general, a hold harmless agreement is an agreement or contract in which one party agrees to hold the other free from the responsibility for any liability or damage that might arise out of the particular transaction involved.
They vary a bit depending upon the type of transaction that they are being utilized for.

Trusts normally do include a hold harmless agreement. Trustees are indeminfied for their actions, so long as they are using reasonable care, and cannot be held liable for things such as misjudgments. This does not apply, however, to wrongful acts by the trustee. The hold harmless agreement in this case would normally include such language.
