To the full extent permitted by law, in no event will MHS’ liability for any damages in relation to any claim arising or relating to this agreement, or otherwise arising from any order(s) contemplated under this agreement exceed, in the aggregate, the amount actually paid by the Purchaser for the Product(s) which directly caused the damage.
Except to the extent prohibited by applicable federal, state or provincial law, the Purchaser shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless MHS, its directors, officers, employees, and agents from any and all claims, suits, damages, liability, losses, fees, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) resulting from or arising out of any breach, act or omission of the Purchaser under these Terms.
MHS will not be liable for failure or delay in the performance of any of its obligations under these Terms for the time and to the extent such failure or delay is caused by earthquake, riot, civil commotion, plague, epidemic, pandemic, war, terrorism (including cyber terrorism), strike, flood, transportation interruption or governmental acts or restriction, or other cause that is beyond the reasonable control of MHS (“Event of Force Majeure”). MHS will exercise reasonable efforts to provide the Purchaser with information of any Event of Force Majeure as soon as it becomes aware of the same (including its best estimate of the likely extent and duration of the interference with its activities) and will use commercially reasonable efforts to overcome the difficulties created thereby and to resume performance of its obligations as soon as practicable.
These Terms may not be waived, amended, or modified, except by prior written agreement by MHS. If any one or more provisions of these Terms are found to be illegal or unenforceable, the remaining provisions will be enforced to the maximum extent possible. To the extent any purchase order conflicts with or amends these Terms in any way, these Terms, as unmodified, will prevail. To the full extent permitted by applicable law, this agreement will be governed by, construed, and interpreted in accordance with the law of the Province of Ontario, without reference to conflict of laws principles, and the federal laws of Canada applicable therein.
