by this section except (i) to the extent the entity is bound by a
bona fide agreement with a third party to perform some or all of the
Fulfillment Services (a oThird Party Agreementoe), or (ii) the
entity owns or controls a facility at which some or all of the
Fulfillment Services are performed, then until such time as the
operations of such facility cease, which in no event shall exceed
one (1) year.  The entity may comply with the terms of a Third Party
Agreement (with respect to the covered Fulfillment Services only)
until the earlier of the expiration of any current mandatory term of
the agreement or the date that such agreement can be validly
terminated without penalty, provided that within thirty (30) days
after the acquisition of such entity, VBI so notifies Deluxe of the
Third Party Agreement and the expiration date thereof.

common carrier.  In no event shall either party be entitled to
assert any claim more than one (1) year after the date of shipment
of a defective product or the incident precipitating such claim.

            19.2 Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability.  DELUXE HEREBY

            19.3 Remedies Cumulative.  None of the rights, powers or
remedies conferred upon any party shall be mutually exclusive, and
