PARTY, OR ANY OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL,
EXEMPLARY, PUNITIVE, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR LOSS OF GOODWILL IN ANY WAY
RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR RESULTING FROM THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE
DELIVERABLES OR THE PERFORMANCE OR NON-PERFORMANCE OF ANY SERVICES, INCLUDING
THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE, EVEN IF EACH PARTY HAS BEEN NOTIFIED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OR LIKELIHOOD OF SUCH DAMAGES OCCURRING, AND WHETHER SUCH LIABILITY
IS BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, PRODUCTS LIABILITY OR
OTHERWISE.

9. MAXIMUM LIABILITY. EXCEPT FOR THE PARTIES' RESPECTIVE INDEMNIFICATION
OBLIGATIONS UNDER SECTIONS 10 AND 11, MISUSE OF THE OTHER PARTY'S INTELLECTUAL
PROPERTY, AND/OR BREACHES OF THE CONFIDENTIALITY PROVISIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT,
IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY'S LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES TO CUSTOMER OR TO ANY
OTHER PERSON OR ENTITY REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER BASED ON
CONTRACT, TORT, NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, PRODUCTS LIABILITY OR OTHERWISE,
EVER EXCEED THE FEES PAYABLE BY CUSTOMER TO CNP UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR IN THE
CASE OF DAMAGES ARISING UNDER AN ATTACHMENT TO THIS AGREEMENT, THE FEES PAYABLE
BY CUSTOMER TO CNP UNDER SUCH ATTACHMENT.

10. CNP Indemnification for Infringement. CNP shall defend and indemnify
Customer and hold Customer harmless against any losses, expenses, damages,
penalties, actions, claims, suits, or proceedings (including court costs and
reasonable attorneys' fees) (each, an "CNP INDEMNIFIED CLAIM," to which Customer
may become subject, brought by or as a result of a third party action to the
extent that any such CNP Indemnified Claim is based upon Customer's use of the
Deliverables or the Technology in accordance with the terms of this Agreement
constitutes an infringement of any valid claim of any U.S. patent, any valid
copyright, or any other intellectual property right recognized in the U.S. In
the event that any CNP Indemnified Claim is initiated, Customer shall notify CNP
within ten (10) days after it learns of the commencement of same, shall
cooperate fully in the defense of any such CNP Indemnified Claim, at CNP's
expense, and permit CNP or its insurance carrier to defend any CNP Indemnified
Claim; provided, however, that CNP will not effect any settlement of any CNP
Indemnified Claim for which Customer seeks indemnification hereunder without the
prior written consent of Customer (which consent will not be unreasonably
withheld or delayed) unless such settlement includes an unconditional release of
Customer. Customer shall not compromise or settle any CNP Indemnified Claim,
that is the subject of CNP's defense obligations without the prior written
consent of CNP. Customer will have the right, at its cost, to participate in the
defense of any claim, suit, or proceeding for which it seeks indemnification
hereunder, with counsel of its choosing. Customer's failure to perform its
obligations hereunder shall relieve CNP of its obligations hereunder. In the
event of the commencement of such an action or if the commencement thereof
appears likely to CNP, CNP shall have the right to: (i) attempt to obtain for
Customer the right to continue using the Deliverables; (ii) modify or replace
the Deliverables, provided that any modification or replacement does not result
in a material degradation in performance or capabilities of the Deliverables;
and (iii) require the return of the Deliverables, and give Customer a refund or
credit only as otherwise provided in an Attachment to this Agreement. In the
event that none of the aforementioned options are reasonably attainable, CNP
shall have the right to terminate the applicable Attachment or schedule thereto.
Except as otherwise specifically and unambiguously stated in an Attachment, the
foregoing states CNP's sole responsibility and liability in respect to
infringement. The provisions of this Section 10 relating to indemnification
shall survive termination of this Agreement and the Attachments.

11. Customer Indemnification for Infringement. Customer shall defend and
indemnify CNP and hold CNP harmless against any losses, expenses, damages,
penalties, actions, claims, suits, or proceedings (including court costs and
reasonable attorneys' fees) (each, a "CUSTOMER INDEMNIFIED CLAIM," to which CNP
may become subject, brought by or as a result of a third party action to the
extent that any such Customer Indemnified Claim is based upon the Customer
Content constitutes an infringement of any valid claim of any U.S. patent, any
valid copyright, or any other intellectual property right recognized in the U.S.
In the event that any Customer Indemnified Claim is initiated, CNP shall notify
Customer within ten (10) days after it learns of the commencement of same, shall
cooperate fully in the defense of any such Customer Indemnified Claim, at
Customer's expense, and permit Customer or its insurance carrier to defend any
Customer Indemnified Claim; provided, however, that Customer will not effect any
settlement of any Customer Indemnified Claim for which CNP seeks indemnification
hereunder without the prior written consent of CNP (which consent will not be
unreasonably withheld or delayed) unless such settlement includes an
unconditional release of CNP. CNP shall not compromise or settle any Customer
Indemnified Claim, that is the subject of Customer's defense obligations without
the prior written consent of Customer. CNP will have the right, at its cost, to
participate in the defense of any claim, suit, or proceeding for which it seeks
indemnification hereunder, with counsel of its choosing. CNP's failure to
perform its obligations hereunder shall relieve Customer of its obligations
hereunder. Except as otherwise specifically and unambiguously stated in an
Attachment, the foregoing states Customer's sole responsibility and liability in
respect to infringement. The provisions of this Section 11 relating to
indemnification shall survive termination of this Agreement and the Attachments.

12. (a) Customer General Indemnification. Customer shall defend and indemnify
CNP and hold CNP harmless against any Customer Indemnified Claim arising from
(i) the activities of Customer's users' of the Deliverables ("End

Users"), including without limitation, unauthorized disclosure of CNP's or third
party proprietary information, so long as CNP has notified Customer of any such
restrictions, (ii) any willful misconduct or fraud committed by Customer
(including Customer's employees, agents or representatives) or End Users; (iii)
any employment agreement, or other agreement, or state or federal law, with
respect to current and past employees or independent contractors of Customer; or
(iv) any prior or current agreement between Customer and third parties with
respect to the types of services provided by CNP to Customer hereunder. All
other procedural provisions set forth in Section 12 shall apply.

representatives). All other procedural provisions set forth in Section 11 shall
apply.

13. Termination Generally. This Agreement will commence on the date this
Agreement is signed by both parties and will remain in effect until terminated

Attachment without otherwise affecting the rights and obligation of the parties

(30) days written notice to the other, either party may terminate this Agreement
as of the date specified in such notice of termination.

15. Termination of Attachment. If either party violates its obligations under
any Attachment, then the other party may terminate such Attachment by sending
written termination notice describing the noncompliance to the non-complying
party. For noncompliance caused by failure to pay any sums due hereunder, the
non-complying party shall have ten (10) calendar days, after the non-complying
party's receipt of such notification, to cure any such noncompliance. For
noncompliance caused by any other reason, the non-complying party shall have
thirty (30) calendar days, after the non-complying party's receipt of such
notification, to cure any such noncompliance. If noncompliance is not cured
within the required period, the party providing termination notice shall have
the right to terminate such Attachment, and any and all related schedules
thereto.

16. Effect of Termination. Within thirty (30) days after the termination of an
Attachment for any reason, (i) Customer will pay CNP for all Services performed
by CNP in accordance with this Agreement up to the effective date of such
termination and all other amounts owed by Customer to CNP under such Attachment
not disputed in good faith; and (ii) except as otherwise set forth in this
Agreement or the Attachments, Customer will return or destroy (as requested by
CNP) all copies of the Technology, including Deliverables not otherwise owned or
licensed under the Agreement, provided to Customer under such Attachment,
including all documentation related thereto; and (iii) except as otherwise set

such Attachment by the other party. Upon the destruction or return of such
materials, the complying party will provide the other party with a signed
written statement certifying that it has destroyed or returned all the other
party's property. Except as otherwise set forth in this Agreement or in the
Attachments, upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, all rights and
licenses granted by each party to the other party will immediately cease.

17. Trademarks And Trade Names. Nothing in this Agreement confers upon either
party any right to use the other party's trade names and trademarks except as
set forth under this Agreement. All use of such marks by either party will inure
to the benefit of the owner of such marks, use of which will be subject to
specifications controlled by the owner.

authorize an announcement made by CNP of Customer's selection of the Technology;
(ii) assist and participate in a success story upon the successful
implementation of the Technology; (iii) accept occasional reference calls from
prospective customers; and (iv) allow site visits by prospective CNP customers

20. Assignments. Neither party may assign or delegate this Agreement or any of
its licenses, rights or duties under this Agreement, directly or indirectly, by

separate written agreement between CNP and such employee or contractor. The
hiring and engaging of such personnel shall be subject to the written consent of
CNP and Customer.

23. Compliance with Laws. Each party shall be responsible for compliance with
all applicable laws, rules, and regulations. Customer agrees to keep such books

performance rights or other licenses for display, distribution, performance and
other uses of the Customer Content, including without limitation, payment of all
royalties and other amounts owed third parties in connection therewith.

24. Force Majeure. Neither CNP nor Customer will be liable for failure to
perform any of its respective obligations under this Agreement (other than the
payment of fees) if such failure is caused by an event outside its reasonable
control, including but not limited to, an act of God, war, or natural disaster.

25. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be exclusively construed, governed and
enforced under the laws of the State of Georgia (without regard to rules
governing conflict of laws). The parties agree that the United Nations
Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods shall not apply in
any respect to this Agreement or the parties.

26. Venue. The parties agree that the exclusive venue for all actions, relating
in any manner to this Agreement, shall only be in a federal or state court of
competent jurisdiction located in Los Angeles County, California. Each party
consents and submits to the personal jurisdiction of such courts and irrevocably
waives any and all defenses inconsistent with this Section.

27. Survival. Any and all provisions, promises and warranties under this
Agreement which by their nature or effect are required or intended to be
observed, kept or performed after termination of this Agreement will survive the
termination of this Agreement and remain binding upon and for the benefit of the
parties hereto.

hereto signed by the parties, constitutes the entire agreement between the
parties regarding the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or
contemporaneous agreements, negotiations, representations and proposals, written
or oral, including without limitation that Letter of Intent between the parties
dated on or about May 7, 2001. This Agreement does not operate as an acceptance
of any conflicting or additional terms and conditions and will prevail over any
conflicting or additional provision of any purchase order or any other
instrument of Customer, it being understood that any purchase order issued by
Customer will be for Customer's convenience only. This Agreement will not be
construed to create any employment relationship, partnership, joint venture or
agency relationship or to authorize any party to enter into any commitment or
agreement binding on the other party. No delay or failure in exercising any
right hereunder and no partial or single exercise thereof will be deemed to
constitute a waiver of such right or any other

provisions of this Agreement will be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent
permitted by applicable law. No modifications, additions, or amendments to this

o    A complete production management system

o    A content management system

o    A flexible publishing system

o    An advanced personalization framework

o    Detailed reporting and analysis

scalable. The system includes digital download technology, streaming
capabilities and online media storage features.

PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM - includes management tools to do promotions,
offers/couponing, pricing administration and shopping cart up-sell features.
Also includes automated workflow systems and a content scheduling system, which
allows for manual editing and adjustment of both internal and external content

CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM - allows for the integration of content, in a variety
of formats, from both external and internal sources. Content can be edited and
adjusted and the aggregated content is then displayed on site.

PUBLISHING SYSTEM - is built on top of Vignette and iPlanet. The system is
optimized for speed and efficiency. Multi-layer caching (disk, memory and
application level) maximizes publishing speed. The system also includes a
special customization layer written to allow flexibility in look of all content.
The publishing systems can publish to a variety of display formats, allowing
in-store kiosks and online stores to share content.

PERSONALIZATION FRAMEWORK - has the capability to store a user's demographic
data, preferences, click streams and purchase history, allowing for the return
of targeted content and recommendations instantly. The personalization framework
is integrated with the publishing environment to allow all published pages to
have content personalized for individual users.

The framework includes:

Database - Stores user demographic data, user preferences, click streams and
purchase history

In-memory caching for user profiles

Algorithms and systems - In-house system which stores data in a distributed
multi layer cache and applies a variety of algorithms to return best
recommendations, targeted content and up-sell opportunities

Segmentation engine - Spots trends and performs clustering, enabling
identification of affinity groups and user segmentations

Collaborative filtering - Compares individual user demographics and activity to
other user behavior

REPORTING AND ANALYSIS - utilizes cluster technology to create custom a
reporting system, which allows full access to all activity on the site. A
web-based interface provides full information on sales, traffic, financials,
demographics, trend analysis, site performance, inventory management,
advertising, etc. Additionally, order, invoice and shipping data can be
integrated to back-end ERP/financial systems (PeopleSoft, SAP, etc.) or exported
in raw data format.

COMMERCE ENGINE - supports multiple third party fulfillers and cascaded
fulfillment, handles a full range of coupons and supports a broad range of
payment brands and agents. The order pipeline also allows control over order
flow.

                 provide notice of termination for the Third Party Agreements to
                 such third parties. Except as otherwise provided herein, CNP

                 Customer's failure to provide a termination notice as requested
                 in writing by CNP. All services requested by Customer under the

B.   COSTS OF TERMINATING CUSTOMER'S EXISTING HOSTING SERVICES AGREEMENTS

     (i)    Termination Fees: Customer shall pay all Termination Fees arising
            under the Third Party Agreements. For purposes of this Hosted
            License Agreement, the term "Termination Fees" shall mean all costs
            or claims arising under the Third Party Agreements for early
            termination of such agreements and all costs approved by CNP in
            connection with negotiating such terminations. Customer agrees to
            make good faith efforts to reduce any fees and/or payments
            associated with termination of the Third Party Agreements.

     (ii)   Reimbursement Amount: If the duration of this Hosted License
            Agreement is less than three (3) years as a result of (i)
            termination of the Hosted License Agreement for cause by Customer
            under Section 13 of the Hosted License Agreement; (ii) termination
            of this Hosted License Agreement by Customer pursuant to the Service
            Level Agreement; or (iii) termination of this Hosted License
            Agreement because CNP, or a successor, ceases to do business in the
            ordinary course, CNP shall pay to Customer an amount equal to the
            Reimbursement Amount within thirty (30) days of any termination set
            forth in (i), (ii), or (iii) above, or Customer will have the right
            to offset the Reimbursement Amount against any Hosting Fees due CNP,
            which determination will be in Customer's sole and exclusive
            discretion.

            For purposes of this Hosted License Agreement, the term
            "REIMBURSEMENT AMOUNT" shall be calculated as follows:

            (Total of all Termination Fees) * ((36 - Duration in Months) / 36)

            where "Duration in Months" is equal to the duration of the Agreement
            in calendar months, or portion thereof.

            Example: If the total of all Termination Fees is $900,000 and this
            Hosted License Agreement is terminated on the 12th month following
            the Commencement Date as a result of one or more of the conditions
            described above, the Reimbursement Amount shall be calculated as
            follows:

                      ($900,000) * (36-12)/ 36) = $600,000

C.   COSTS OF EQUIPMENT CONTRIBUTED BY CUSTOMER

     (i)    Subject to further written approval of CNP (a "TRANSFERRED EQUIPMENT
            AUTHORIZATION"), Customer will have the right to transfer to CNP
            additional equipment of Customer for use in connection with the CNP
            Platform ("TRANSFERRED EQUIPMENT"). CNP shall own all right, title
            and interest in the Transferred Equipment. As consideration for the
            Transferred Equipment, CNP will have the right to issue to Customer
            a Stock Warrant, on terms mutually agreed to by CNP and Customer,
            for the fair market value of the Transferred Equipment, up to the
            amount of $50,000 ("WARRANT"). In the event the fair market value of
            the Transferred Equipment exceeds $50,000, Customer will have the
            right to offset such excess amount against the Hosting Fees, or be
            reimbursed by CNP for such excess amount, as more particularly
            described in the Transferred Equipment Authorization. Each request
            by Customer for a Transferred Equipment Authorization shall include
            receipts or other documents evidencing the fair market value of the
            Transferred Equipment.

     (ii)   Customer shall have a right to repurchase the Transferred Equipment
            at fair market value by providing written notice to CNP within ten
            (10) days of termination or expiration of this Hosted License
            Agreement for any reason.

D.   ADDITIONAL TERMS

     (i)    In the event the Termination Fees exceed $500,000, Customer shall
            have the right to defer payment of the Hosting Fee due for calendar
            month 13 until the earlier of (i) termination or expiration of this
            Hosted License Agreement for any reason; or (ii) calendar month 24
            of this Hosted License Agreement.

     (ii)   CNP hereby agrees to grant Customer a security interest in the
            assets of CNP for purposes of securing payment of the Reimbursement
            Amount as more particularly described in a security agreement to be
            executed by the parties within sixty (60) days of the Commencement
            Date. ("SECURITY AGREEMENT"). The terms and conditions of the
            Security Agreement shall provide that Customer shall have a first
            priority lien on all of CNP's accounts receivable due from Customer
            ("CUSTOMER RECEIVABLES") and


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    CNP, INC. o Proprietary and Confidential
                                     Page 5
<PAGE>

            that, to the extent the Reimbursement Amount exceeds the Customer
            Receivables, Customer shall participate on a pari-passu basis with
            the first priority secured interests of the following CNP creditors:
            Noro-Mosely Partners IV, L.P., Psilos Group II, L.P., Constellation
            Venture Capital, L.P., and Constellation Venture Capital Offshore,
            L.P. (collectively, the "Creditor Group"). The final terms and
            conditions of the Security Agreement shall be subject to the
            approval of CNP, Customer and the Creditor Group; provided, however,
            that such approval shall not be unreasonably conditioned, withheld
            or delayed.

     (iii)  Each month during the term of this Hosted License Agreement, CNP
            shall pay to Customer the Transition Assistance Fee. For purposes of

     commercial efforts to ensure that "Customer Web Site" is operating and
     available to End Users *****% of the time in any calendar month ("Uptime
     Commitment")."In the event that Customer experiences any of the service

     e.   "Performance Problem" shall mean that (i) Downtime has exceeded
          Allowable Downtime cumulatively, resulting in Availability less than
          the Uptime Commitment during any one month, (ii) each Downtime Event

     metrics used to analyze performance. Pages used for measurement will be
     measured without any elements served outside the CNP Network. The Keynote

     b.   Resolution of Downtime: CNP will use commercially reasonable efforts
          to resolve all Downtime Events based on the severity levels set forth
          above and in accordance with the commercial impact to Customer caused

          adversely affect Customer's benefits set forth in this Agreement.

     c.   If the source of and remedy to the Downtime Event reside outside of
          the CNP LAN or WAN, CNP will use commercially reasonable efforts to
          notify the party(ies) responsible for the source of the Downtime Event

     and all Downtime periods and Performance Problems that occur in a single

     Problem, unless the Service Credit is due in Customer's final month of
     Service. In such case, a refund for the dollar value of the Service Credit
     will be mailed to Customer.

10.  Service Credit Exclusions. With respect to Performance Problems caused by
     application code written by non-CNP personnel, CNP will respond in
     accordance with Section 6(a). However, with respect to such problems, no
     Service Credits will be applied. For MarketFirst, Data Warehouse,

Request will be attached to this Professional Services Agreement and made a part
hereof.

3.  Change Order. Any modifications to the specifications in a Request will
require execution of a written and mutually agreed upon change order by CNP and
Customer ("CHANGE ORDER"). Each Change Order complying with this section shall
be deemed an amendment to the Request.

     a) Modifications. In the event that CNP in good faith, uncovers unforeseen
factors in the development of such Change Order and determines that the same
materially increases CNP's cost of performance hereunder, CNP shall notify
Customer immediately in writing of such factors and seek Customer's approval in
mitigating the factors by revising the specifications or price associated with
the current Request.

     b) Rejection of Change Order. In the event that the parties cannot mutually
agree, after using their best efforts, respectively, upon the Change Order, CNP
reserves the right to terminate the Request. Upon such termination, Customer
shall pay to CNP all fees for any Professional Services or Deliverables provided
by CNP to Customer pursuant to a Request up to the point of such termination.

4.  Customer Responsibilities. Customer shall cooperate with CNP during the term
of this Professional Services Agreement and shall perform all duties and
obligations of Customer identified in a Request. Customer shall designate an
employee or agent as project manager who shall be assigned the primary
responsibility for communicating with and providing necessary assistance to
Customer during the term of this Professional Services Agreement.

5.  Facilities. Upon reasonable advance notice by CNP and as set forth in a
Request, Customer agrees to provide reasonable working space, computer machine
time, materials and any other services and materials which may be necessary in
connection with the performance of the Professional Services.

6.  Fees. For each Request, prior to commencing any work, CNP will provide
Customer with either an hourly rate with estimated hours or a fixed fee as
specified in the Request.

a)   Hourly Fees. If the Professional Services will be provided at an hourly
rate, the Professional Services will be performed at the published rates of CNP
prevailing at the time the Professional Services are provided to Customer unless
otherwise specified in a Request. A schedule of CNP's rates as of the effective
date of this Professional Services Agreement is attached hereto as Exhibit B.
Except for fixed fee Professional Services, any quantity of hours or dollar
amounts indicated on a Request shall be construed only as an estimate for the
Professional Services, but in the event that the actual hours or dollar amounts
exceed by *****% the amounts set forth in the applicable Request, CNP will
notify Customer immediately in writing and the parties will re-evaluate the
Request.

b)   Fixed Fees. Except as otherwise provided in a Request, Customer shall pay
for all fixed fee Professional Services by paying *****% of the fixed fee upon
execution of the Request with the remainder payable upon the completion of the
Professional Services pursuant to such Request.

This PLATFORM LICENSE AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT ("PLATFORM LICENSE AGREEMENT")

Agreement and the Master Agreement establishes the general terms applicable to
Customer's utilization of certain CNP technology components providing

COMPONENTS").

                          STANDARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS


1.   Transition Option Date. This Platform License Agreement shall be effective
on the Transition Option Date. For purposes of this Platform License Agreement,
the term "TRANSITION OPTION DATE" shall have the meaning ascribed in the Hosted
Platform License Agreement for the term "Transition Option Date".

2.  Delivery and Acceptance. Within ten (10) days of the Transition Option Date,
CNP shall deliver to Customer the most current version of those CNP Licensed
Platform Components identified in Exhibit A to this Platform License Agreement
(the "Licensed Platform Components"). Customer acknowledges and agrees that
Customer has had an opportunity to review the Licensed Platform Components and
has independently determined that Licensed Platform Components will meet its
requirements. The Licensed Platform Components shall be deemed accepted upon
delivery.

3.  License Grant. Effective as of the Transition Option Date, CNP grants
Customer a limited, nonexclusive, and non-transferable license to use the
Licensed Platform Components only as follows:

     (a)  in executable code form (except as provided in Section 4);

     (b)  the number of copies specified in Exhibit B to this Platform License
          Agreement;

     (c)  on servers owned or controlled by Customer; and

     (d)  for the internal business purposes of Customer as further described in
          the Hosted Platform Agreement.

4.  Source Code Rights. Upon the occurrence of a release condition under an
escrow agreement (if any) between CNP and Customer ("ESCROW AGREEMENT"),
Customer shall have the right to use the source code for the Licensed Platform
Components; provided, however, that such use shall be limited to internal
purposes for correcting defects and creating enhancements for use by Customer in
accordance with this Platform License Agreement, and not for purposes of
licensing, sublicensing, distributing or making available the Licensed Platform
Components, or any enhancements or other derivative works to third parties.

5.  Use Restrictions. Customer may not decompile, reverse compile, or reverse
engineer the Licensed Platform Components. In addition, Customer may not copy
Licensed Platform Components, except for a single back-up copy of the Licensed
Platform Components, without the express written consent of CNP. Customer shall
not permit any third party access to Licensed Platform Components except as
otherwise permitted under the Hosted Platform License Agreement, and may use
Licensed Platform Components only at the facilities of Customer or at facilities
otherwise agreed to in writing by CNP. Customer may not assign, transfer, sell,
license, sublicense or grant any rights to or interest in Licensed Platform
Components to any third party. Customer will comply with all terms and
conditions packaged with or accompanying any third party software (if any)
furnished to Customer under this Platform License Agreement.

6.  Term of Agreement. This Platform License Agreement shall commence on the
Transition Option Date and shall continue for so long as Customer complies with

7.   Maintenance.

     a) New Versions. CNP may offer maintenance services for Licensed Platform
Components in its exclusive discretion ("Maintenance"). As part of Maintenance,
CNP may issue modifications to Licensed Platform Components in the form of
updates, enhancements or bug-fixes (the "New Versions"). So long as Customer has
paid the maintenance fees described herein and has not otherwise breached this
Platform License Agreement, CNP shall furnish to Customer any New Versions made
generally available to its customers without payment of additional license fees.
Customer shall be solely responsible for the implementation of and the
compatibility of all New Versions. All of the terms and conditions of this
Platform License Agreement shall apply to such New Versions.

     b) Consulting. CNP may agree to provide software consulting services to
Customer in connection with Licensed Platform Components. All such services
shall be provided under the Professional Services Agreement at CNP's prevailing
rates in accordance with a written statement of work agreed to in advance by the
parties.

8.   Payments to CNP.

     a) License Fees. During the term of this Agreement, Customer shall pay to
CNP, as a monthly license fee for Licensed Platform Components, the amounts set
forth in Exhibit B to this Platform License Agreement. Additional sites or usage
may be added to this Platform License Agreement upon the mutual agreement of the
parties and at the then-current license and maintenance fees of CNP.

     b) Maintenance Fees. Maintenance fees for Licensed Platform Components are
paid monthly in advance. The monthly fee for Maintenance for the first year
following the Transition Option Date is set forth in Exhibit B to this Platform
License Agreement. CNP shall invoice Customer for Maintenance on a monthly basis
for the first year following the Transition Option Date. Thereafter, maintenance
shall renew for an additional one-year term on each anniversary of the
Transition Option Date unless Customer provides at least thirty (30) days notice
of termination prior to such date. Reinstatement of Maintenance following
termination by Customer shall be subject to the exclusive discretion of CNP and
to payment of additional fees as determined by CNP.

9.  Termination Rights. Either party shall have the right to terminate this
Platform License Agreement due to a material breach by the other that is not
cured within thirty (30) days after written notice of such breach.

10. Effect of Termination. Following termination of this Platform License
Agreement for any reason, Customer's right to use Licensed Platform Components
shall terminate, and Customer shall remove any and all copies of Licensed
Platform Components from its computer systems and, together with all associated
documentation, and return them to CNP.

11. Warranties. LICENSED PLATFORM COMPONENTS AND ALL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS
IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. CNP MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTY OF ANY KIND
WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES,
INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, TITLE, SECURITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT, AVAILABILITY,
ACCURACY, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

12. LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY. CNP SHALL NOT BE LIABLE TO CUSTOMER OR ANY OTHER
PERSON OR ENTITY FOR ANY INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, INCIDENTAL, OR
PUNITIVE DAMAGES UNDER THIS PLATFORM LICENSE AGREEMENT (INCLUDING BUT NOT
LIMITED TO LOST BUSINESS PROFITS AND LOSS, DAMAGE OR DESTRUCTION OF DATA)
REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF THE ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT, INCLUDING
NEGLIGENCE, AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES IN ADVANCE OR WHETHER SUCH DAMAGES ARE REASONABLY
FORESEEABLE. NOTWITHSTANDING THE FOREGOING, THE LIABILITY OF CNP FOR ANY REASON
AND FOR ANY CAUSE OF ACTION WHATSOEVER SHALL NOT EXCEED THE AMOUNTS PAID BY
CUSTOMER TO CNP UNDER THIS PLATFORM LICENSE AGREEMENT DURING THE TWELVE (12)
MONTHS PRECEDING THE EVENT GIVING RISE TO LIABILITY.
