Both Buyer and Seller will also be bound by the Marketplace Terms and Conditions in addition to any other Terms that may apply to the Buyer and Seller’s commercial relationship (e.g. a GPO contract).
In the event of a conflict between (i) Marketplace Terms, and (ii) any Outside Terms that are agreed to between a Buyer and Seller, or which otherwise apply to a Buyer and Seller’s commercial relationship, the Marketplace Terms, as applicable, will always govern with respect to any rights or obligations between MCCP and/or GraphiteRx, on one hand, and the Buyer and/or Seller, on the other.

THE FOREGOING DOES NOT AFFECT ANY LIABILITY THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED UNDER APPLICABLE LAW.
Your acceptance of this limitation of liability is an essential term and We would not grant You access to the Site(s) without Your agreement to this essential term this Agreement. If You are a California resident, You waive Your rights with respect to California civil code section 1542, which indicates “a general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which, if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” Because some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or the limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states or jurisdictions, our liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.
GraphiteRx shall defend, indemnify and hold You (and Your respective affiliates and subsidiaries, and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents) harmless from liability to third parties resulting from infringement by the Site, Software or Site Content of any United States patent or any copyright or misappropriation of any trade secret, provided GraphiteRx is promptly notified of any and all threats, claims, and proceedings related thereto and given reasonable assistance and the opportunity to assume sole control over defense and settlement; GraphiteRx will not be responsible for any settlement it does not approve in writing. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to portions or components of the Site, Software, or Site Content (i) not supplied by GraphiteRx, (ii) that are modified after delivery by GraphiteRx, (iii) combined with other products, processes, or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (iv) where a User continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (v) where a User’s use of the Site, Software, or Site Content is not strictly in accordance with this Agreement. If due to a claim of infringement, the Site, Software or Site Content is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be or is believed by GraphiteRx to be infringing, GraphiteRx may, at its option and expense (a) replace or modify the Site, Software or Site Content to be non-infringing, (b) obtain for Users a license to continue using the Site, Software or Site Content, or (c) if neither of the foregoing is commercially practicable, terminate this Agreement and any User rights hereunder and provide User a refund of any prepaid, unused fees for the Site, if applicable.
You and We shall each defend, indemnify and hold the other (and such Party’s respective affiliates and subsidiaries, and their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents) harmless from liability to third parties for any damages, losses, liabilities, settlements, and expenses (including without limitation costs and attorneys’ fees) in connection with any claim or action that arises from a violation of this Agreement.
