Customer may request that, in providing support services hereunder, Striim directly access Customer’s production systems, either by logging in using Customer’s access credentials and/or through a remote (e.g., WebEx) session initiated by Customer. Striim is not responsible for any effect on, loss of, or damage to, Customer’s technology systems or data from Striim’s attempt to address trouble tickets from within Customer’s production environment, nor is Striim agreeing to any Customer-prescribed security requirements as a condition of such access. Customer also may request that, in providing support services hereunder, Striim receive Customer data from one or more specific transactions for the purpose of attempting to re-create errors. Customer will provide only such data that Customer may legally provide to Striim, in compliance with Customer’s contractual obligations to third parties. Striim does not promise any level of protection with respect to such data other than as required under the applicable confidentiality provisions in effect between Striim and Customer, even if such data in Customer’s possession is subject to additional legal requirements, and does not warrant that such data will not be lost or compromised. With respect to either of the foregoing scenarios, Striim will require that such request be documented in the support ticketing system and confirmed by Customer in writing, and at its discretion may decline to (as the case may be) access the production system or receive Customer’s transaction data. The provisions of this paragraph supersede any conflicting provision in this Addendum or in the underlying agreement between the parties.

4.2     Exclusions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Addendum, Striim will have no obligation to provide any Support Services to Customer to the extent that such Support Services arise from or relate to any of the following: (a) any modifications or alterations of the Software by any party other than Striim or Striim’s subcontractors; (b) any Use of the Software in a computing environment not meeting the system requirements set forth in the Documentation, including hardware and operating system requirements; (c) any issues arising from the failure of the Software to interoperate with any other software or systems, except to the extent that such interoperability is expressly mandated in the applicable Documentation; (d) any breakdowns, fluctuations, or interruptions in electric power or the telecommunications network; (e) any Error that is not reproducible by Striim; or (f) any violation of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including any breach of the scope of a license grant. In addition, Customer agrees and acknowledges that any information relating to malfunctions, bugs, errors, or vulnerabilities in the Support Services constitutes Confidential Information of Striim, and Customer will refrain from using such information for any purpose other than obtaining Support Services from Striim, and will not disclose such information to any third party.

5.     Term And Termination

5.1     Term. As long as Customer timely pays, as applicable, the annual fees for a term license or the support and maintenance fees applicable for a perpetual license as set forth on the applicable Order Form, the term of this Addendum will commence upon the original date of Delivery of the applicable Software and continue during the term of the Agreement, unless earlier terminated in accordance with this section.

5.2     Termination. This Addendum will automatically terminate upon the termination of Customer’s license to the Software set forth in the Agreement.  In addition, each party will have the right to terminate this Addendum immediately upon written notice if the other party materially breaches this Addendum and fails to cure such breach within thirty (30) days after written notice of breach by the non-breaching party.  Sections 1 (Definitions), 5.2 (Termination), 5.3 (Lapsed Support), 6 (Warranty), and any payment obligations accrued by Customer prior to termination or expiration of this Addendum will survive such termination or expiration.

5.3     Lapsed Support. For a period of twelve (12) months after any lapse of Support Services through the termination or expiration of this Addendum (other than Striim’s termination for Customer’s breach), Customer subsequently may elect to reinstate such Support Services for such Software upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement; provided, however, that (a) such Support Services have not been discontinued by Striim; (b) the Agreement continues to be in effect; and (c) Customer pays to Striim an amount equal to all of the fees that would have been due to Striim had the Support Services been provided under this Agreement during the entire period of such lapse.

6.     Warranty.

Striim warrants that the Support Services will be performed with at least the same degree of skill and competence normally practiced by consultants performing the same or similar services.  Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and Striim’s entire liability, for any breach of the foregoing warranty shall be for Striim to reperform, in a conforming manner, any nonconforming Support Services that are reported to Striim by Customer in writing within thirty (30) days after the date of completion of such Services.

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THE PRECEDING PARAGRAPH, THE SUPPORT SERVICES AND ALL MATERIALS FURNISHED TO CUSTOMER UNDER THIS ADDENDUM ARE PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.  WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING, EXCEPT AS SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION, STRIIM DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES, AND CONDITIONS, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, OR STATUTORY, WITH RESPECT TO THE SUPPORT SERVICES AND ANY MATERIALS FURNISHED HEREUNDER, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, NONINFRINGEMENT, ACCURACY, AND QUIET ENJOYMENT.
