12.5       Anonymous Data.  P1S may collect or create anonymized information that is not PHI regarding Authorized Users’ and Customer’s use of the Applications, including statistical use information, and may use PHI to create data that is de-identified in accordance with HIPAA (collectively "Anonymous Data").  P1S owns the Anonymous Data and may use and disclose it for any lawful purpose. 

12.6       Binding Agreement; Assignment. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties, and their respective successors and permitted assigns.  Customer may not assign or transfer this Agreement or any rights or obligations hereunder, without the prior written consent of P1S.  Any attempted assignment by Customer of this Agreement or any its rights or obligations hereunder in breach of this Section 12.6 shall be void and of no effect.

12.7       Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and supersedes and extinguishes all prior and contemporaneous agreements, understandings, representations, warranties, proposals and communications, whether oral or written, between the parties relating to such subject matter. Any purchase order, requisition, request for proposal or other document or record prepared, issued or provided by or on behalf of Customer relating to the subject matter of this Agreement is for administrative convenience only and will have no effect in supplementing, varying or superseding any provisions of this Agreement, regardless of any acknowledgement thereof by P1S.  For the avoidance of doubt, P1S may execute separate agreements with Customer for different products and services, which shall not supersede and replace this Agreement unless expressly stated otherwise.

12.8       Amendment, Waiver and Severability.  This Agreement may not be modified or amended except by a writing signed by both parties. No waiver of any breach of any provision of this Agreement shall constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach of the same or any other provision hereof, and no waiver shall be effective unless made in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the waiving party.  In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be illegal, or otherwise unenforceable, such provision will be severed, stricken and replaced with a legal and enforceable provision which most closely reflects the intent of the parties with respect thereto and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect.

12.9       Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in one or more counterparts each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same Agreement. Photocopies, facsimile transmissions and other reproductions of the executed original (with reproduced signatures) will be deemed original counterparts of this Agreement. Electronic signatures and electronically transmitted documents are binding.

12.10     Notices.  P1S may give notices regarding updates, maintenance, renewals, price increases and other general information about the Service by means of a general notice via electronic mail to Customer’s administrative and/or billing e-mail address(es) on record with P1S’s account information for the Customer. Each party giving or making any notice (including any request, demand or other communication) pursuant to this Agreement shall give the notice in writing, cause the notice to be signed by a person having actual signature authority for such party, and use one of the following methods of delivery: personal delivery, registered or certified mail return receipt requested and postage prepaid, or nationally recognized overnight courier with all fees prepaid. Each party giving a notice shall address the notice to the appropriate person at the receiving party as listed below. Notices to P1S should be addressed to: Pharmacy OneSource, Inc., c/o Wolters Kluwer Health, ATTN: Contract Management, 525 Junction Road, Suite 5000, Madison, WI 53717.  Any legal notices for P1S must also be sent to: EVP and General Counsel, Wolters Kluwer U.S. Corp., 28 Liberty St. 26th FL, New York, NY 10005. Notices to Customer: address as indicated in a Purchase Agreement Notice solely to the Legal Department shall not constitute valid notice under this Section 12.10. Except as provided elsewhere in this Agreement, a notice is effective only if the party giving or making the notice has complied with the provisions of this notice Section 12.10, and if the addressee of the notice has received the notice. A notice is deemed to have been received as follows: if a notice is delivered in person, or sent by Registered or Certified Mail, or nationally recognized overnight courier, upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. 

12.11     Waiver.  No modification, amendment or waiver of any provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless agreed to in writing and signed by both parties.  No failure or delay by either party in exercising any right, power, or remedy under this Agreement, except as specifically provided herein, shall operate as a waiver of any such right, power or remedy.

12.12     Severability. Any provision of this Agreement held or determined by a court (or other legal authority) of competent jurisdiction to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction shall be deemed separate, distinct and independent, and shall be removed, changed and/or interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of the original provision to the fullest extent allowed by law and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.

12.13     Independent Parties.  The parties are independent contracting parties and nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to make any party an agent, employee, or joint-venturer of another party. No party shall be entitled to any benefits that another party provides for its own employees, including, without limitation, workers’ compensation, and unemployment insurance. Each party shall have exclusive control over its own employees, agents, and subcontractors, its labor and employee relations, and its policies relating to wages, hours, working conditions or other conditions.

12.14     Force Majeure.  Except for a party’s obligation to pay fees that are due, neither party will be liable for any failure or delay in performance under this Agreement for causes beyond that party’s reasonable control and occurring without that party’s fault, including but not limited to, acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, civil unrest or war, acts of terror, labor strikes (other than those involving the party’s employees), computer attacks or malicious acts, such as attacks on or through the Internet, or failures of service of any telecommunications or Internet service carriers or providers (a “Force Majeure Event”). The party affected by the Force Majeure Event will use reasonable efforts after the start of the Force Majeure Event to notify the other party in writing of the Force Majeure Event including the likely or potential duration, if known, and the effect on its ability to perform any of its obligations under the Agreement.

12.15     No Third-Party Beneficiary. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, no third party is intended to be nor will be a third-party beneficiary of any provision under this Agreement, and P1S and Customer will be the only parties entitled to enforce the rights and terms set out in this Agreement.  

12.16     Change in Laws.  In the event of the promulgation of any applicable law, rule, or regulation, or the issuance of an interpretation of any existing law, rule, or regulation that, in the good faith opinion of P1S’s counsel, could conflict with the terms of this Agreement or could otherwise have a material adverse impact on P1S and/or any of its Affiliates, the parties shall negotiate in good faith to amend this Agreement.  If they are unable to mutually agree on an amendment within thirty (30) days, P1S may immediately terminate this Agreement upon written notice to Customer.
