Client acknowledges and agrees that individual Users may be subject to, and bound by, supplemental or additional terms (“Other Terms”) governing a User’s personal use of the Solutions (e.g., end user license agreements), and such Other Terms will prevail in the event of a conflict with respect to such User’s use of the applicable Solution(s).
