We provide our services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don't promise about our services.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS, NEITHER US FOODS NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES.

WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES "AS IS".
SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES. WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, US FOODS WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. BECAUSE SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, THE LIABILITY OF US FOODS IN SUCH JURISDICTIONS SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY THE LAW.
By accessing and using the Site, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold US Foods from any and all liabilities, claims, losses - including attorney fees - due to use of the Site or your violation of the Terms or any local, state, federal or international laws or regulations. US Foods reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you.
Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this agreement shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under their rules and procedures. The arbitration shall be held telephonically or at a location determined by the AAA. The number of arbitrators shall be one. Your claim shall be arbitrated on an individual basis. If any part of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid, unenforceable or illegal, or otherwise conflicts with the Rules and Procedures of the AAA, then same shall be stricken and the balance of this arbitration provision shall remain in effect and construed accordingly.
If any part of this Agreement is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set forth in this Agreement, then the invalid or unenforceable provision will be deemed superseded by a valid, enforceable provision that most closely matches the intent of the original provision and the remainder of this Agreement shall continue in effect. Except for the failure to make payments when due, neither party to this Agreement will be liable to the other by reason of failure in performance of this Agreement if the failure arises out of any cause beyond the reasonable control of that party. No cause of action arising out of the use of the Site or this Agreement may be instituted by you more than one (1) year after the cause of action first accrues. Any failure by US Foods to enforce any of its rights under the Terms or under applicable law shall not constitute a waiver of such rights.
