10. Limitations on Liability
10.1 No Indirect Damages. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL PHARMRIGHT OR PHARMRIGHT’S OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, SHAREHOLDERS, VENDORS, CONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES, ASSIGNS, SUBSIDIARIES OR AFFILIATES (COLLECTIVELY THE “PHARMRIGHT PARTIES”) BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER, ANY END USER, OR ANY THIRD PARTY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, FOR INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES (EVEN IF SUCH DAMAGES ARE FORESEEABLE, AND WHETHER OR NOT EITHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES) ARISING FROM ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP PROVIDED FOR HEREIN.

10.2 Acknowledgement. Customer understands that: (a) PharmRight is not an insurer of the health or personal safety of any End User; (b) the amount Customer pays to PharmRight is based only on the value of the System PharmRight provides; (c) notification systems may not always operate properly for various reasons; and (d) it is difficult to determine in advance what portion, if any, of any personal injury or death or property loss would be proximately caused by PharmRight’s failure to perform, any PharmRight Party’s negligence, or a failure of the System or Services. Therefore, Customer agrees that even if a court decides that PharmRight’s breach of this Agreement, a failure of the System, or any PharmRight Party’s negligence caused or allowed any harm or damage (whether personal injury, death or property loss) to Customer, an End User or anyone in or about the premises where the System is installed, Customer agrees that the total liability of the PharmRight Parties shall be limited to the greater of (i) $1,000 and (ii) the amount paid by Customer for the Services during the preceding six (6) months. Customer further agrees that this shall be the only remedy regardless of what legal theory (including without limitation, negligence, breach of contract, breach of warranty or product liability) is used to determine that PharmRight (or any of the foregoing parties) were liable for the injury or loss. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT IF PHARMRIGHT WERE TO HAVE ANY LIABILITY GREATER THAN THE AMOUNTS DESCRIBED IN THIS AGREEMENT, PHARMRIGHT’S RISK OF LIABILITY WOULD BE TOO GREAT AND PHARMRIGHT COULD NOT PROVIDE PHARMRIGHT’S SERVICES TO CUSTOMER. CUSTOMER ALSO ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT CUSTOMER HAS SELECTED THE EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES WITH A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF THE LIMITATION OF PHARMRIGHT’S LIABILITY IN THIS AGREEMENT. No action arising out of this Agreement, regardless of form, may be brought by Customer or on Customer’s behalf more than one year after the date the cause of action has accrued.
Customer agrees to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless PharmRight, its affiliates, its contractors, and all of their respective directors, officers, employees, representatives, proprietors, partners, shareholders, servants, principals, agents, predecessors, successors, assigns, accountants, and attorneys from and against any and all suits, actions, claims, proceedings, damages, settlements, judgments, injuries, liabilities, obligations, losses, risks, costs, and expenses (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses) relating to or arising from the System, Customer’s use or an End User’s use of the System, or any misuse of the Equipment, fraud, violation of law, willful misconduct by Customer or any End User, or any breach by Customer or any End User of this Agreement.
