These STOS may be incorporated into other agreements such as agreements entitled “Marketplace Participation Agreement” and “Order Terms and Conditions”. In the event of a conflict in terms between these STOS and the terms of those incorporating agreements (“Incorporating Agreements”), the terms of these STOS shall supersede the terms of the Incorporating Agreements unless such other agreements specifically state otherwise.
These STOS, and any related Incorporating Agreements, constitute the entire and exclusive understanding and agreement between the Supplier and Lumi regarding the Platform. Any failure by Lumi to enforce any right or provision of these STOS will not be considered a waiver of such right or provision, and the waiver of any such right or provision will be effective only if agreed upon in writing and signed by a duly authorized representative of Lumi.
Lumi may periodically revise any of these STOS. If a revision is material, as determined solely by Lumi, the Supplier will be notified.
