SYSCO Corporation's eSYSCO Web Site Terms, Conditions and Notices
Subject to the terms and conditions below (the "Agreement") SYSCO Corporation ("SYSCO") grants the person, entity or group that is a customer of SYSCO ("Customer") and employees acting on such Customer's behalf (the "Representatives") who are assigned or allowed to use Passwords (as defined below) to access www.eysco.net or www.e.sysco.com (the "Web Site" or the "Site") a revocable, nontransferable, nonexclusive license to access and use the Site and the features associated with or accessible through the Site (the "Service") solely for the User's internal use in accordance with this Agreement. Customer agrees that any actions taken or deemed taken by its Representatives on or through the Site or the Service are and will be deemed to be actions taken and fully authorized by the Customer, that the Customer is responsible for the actions of its Representatives and that the obligations and limitations that apply to the Customer hereunder also apply to its Representatives. By accessing the Site and using the Passwords, each Customer and Representative agrees to and accepts each of the provisions of the Agreement. SYSCO is relying upon such agreement and acceptance in continuing to provide access to the Site to such Customer and Representatives. For convenience the Customer and its Representatives may be jointly and severally referred to as "User," "you" or "your"; SYSCO may also be referred to as "we", "us" or "our." When a Representative of a Customer acts as a "User" it does so on its on behalf and on the Customer's behalf. For the purposes of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act as in effect in Texas or any other jurisdiction, and any similar statute, User and SYSCO have agreed to conduct transactions by electronic means through the Site and the Service.
The Service consists solely of allowing User's use of the Web Site to obtain information concerning SYSCO products and services, to submit orders for such products and services through the Site, and to obtain information concerning the status of orders. Without limiting the foregoing, the User may not broadcast, re-transmit, publish, reproduce, or provide access to any information (including product or order data, prices and images) appearing on or provided through the Web Site to any third party. The foregoing does not preclude the User from using information concerning its orders for its internal purposes (such as preparing financial statements and the like).
Users acknowledge and agree that SYSCO may terminate or suspend the license to access the Site and Service at any time as to any User.
Orders and Sales
The eSYSCO Customer Order-Entry feature associated with the Service is provided solely to permit User to determine the availability of SYSCO products and to place legitimate orders (for itself or for another person for whom User is legally authorized to act) or otherwise transact business with SYSCO, and for no other purposes. User agrees to abide by the terms or conditions of use imposed by SYSCO with whom User elects to deal including, but not limited to, payment of all amounts when due.
The terms of any order, sale, confirmation, including payment, delivery and credit terms, as well as any warranties, responsibilities or obligations with respect to products or services (other than the Service), will be governed by the sales, service master distribution or other agreements between SYSCO and Customer (the "Sales Agreements"). Nothing in this Agreement affects such substantive terms of orders, confirmations and sales; rather this Agreement solely relates to the use of the Web Site and the Service and facilitates the making of such orders, confirmations and sales electronically. Without limiting the foregoing, User understands that SYSCO may accept or reject User's offer to purchase; and the mere inclusion of a product on or through the Site or any other web site or SYSCO does not constitute an offer.
The eSYSCO Inventory feature associated with the Service is provided solely for Customer's benefit. SYSCO acknowledges that Customer may regard information Customer stores using the Inventory feature (Inventory Information) as confidential. SYSCO agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality of the Inventory Information and prevent its disclosure to third parties. Information that is also in the public domain or is made known to SYSCO through third parties not related to the Customer will not be considered confidential.
Responsibility of User for Actions on the Site and Through the Service
Customer has been, and (at the request of the Customer or its Representatives) one or more of its Representative's have or may be, assigned one or more passwords or logon identifiers (the "Passwords"). Customer agrees that any actions taken (or deemed taken), any information provided, and/or any instructions or orders furnished by any person using such Passwords will be attributed to and will be binding and enforceable against Customer and that Customer is wholly responsible for any losses arising from misuse of the Passwords. Representatives also agree that they are responsible for any misuse of Passwords. Without limiting the foregoing, (a) any loss of a Password or any provision of a Password to a third party is solely at Customer's and Representative's risk and expense, (b) electronic inquires, order submissions, requests for or downloads of information, and any other action taken after accessing the Site with the Passwords shall be deemed "signed" by Customer and its Representatives for all legal purposes, (c) use of a Password will be deemed to be using and ordering Customer's account with SYSCO and (d) when a User signifies electronically (whether by clicking on icons or buttons or otherwise) acceptance of terms, submits an order, or receives a confirmation via the Site, User will be bound by the terms (including as to quantity, delivery, price, type and description characteristics of the products) and that User has made a binding offer to SYSCO to purchase the product. Each Customer is and agrees to be financially responsible for all uses of this Web Site and the Service by it and its Representatives (as well as for use of Customer's account by others, including without limitation other employees of the Customer to whom the Passwords are provided) and for all charges, fees, taxes and assessments arising out of such use.
