If You wish to obtain Third Party Software on other terms, You should acquire this Third Party Software directly from its suppliers. In no event shall such separate license agreements or additional terms and conditions between You and the supplier be binding on MDaemon Technologies or impose any additional obligations, or obligations inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement, upon MDaemon Technologies whatsoever. To the extent that any particular Third Party Component is covered by additional terms and conditions that provide You with rights to use, copy, distribute, or modify all or part of such Third Party Component broader than the rights afforded You under this Agreement for the Software then, solely to the extent You can exercise such broader rights without breaching the terms of this Agreement for the remainder of the Software, You obtain the benefit of such broader rights.
