     (b) Supplemental Services. In addition, Rackspace may from time to time perform certain additional services on an hourly or fixed fee basis, such as customization of the Managed Hosting Service at Customer's request, and other professional technical services. Supplemental Services will be performed only on Customer's advance written approval and will be invoiced at Rackspace's published rates or other rates approved in advance in writing by Customer. Rackspace may also perform services as described in the AUP for the fees stated in the AUP as necessary to remediate problems caused by AUP violations without obtaining advance Customer consent.
3. Term. This Master Services Agreement shall remain in effect for so long as any Service Order Form incorporating this Master Services Agreement is in effect.

Rackspace and Customer may agree to one or more additional terms having a fixed number of months to follow the expiration of the Initial Term (each a "Renewal Term"). If upon expiration of the Initial Term no Renewal Term has been established by agreement of the parties, the Service Order Form shall automatically renew for successive extended terms of thirty (30) days each (each an "Extended Term") until Rackspace or Customer provides the other with thirty (30) days advance written notice of non-renewal.

4. Payments.
     (a) Fees. Customer agrees to pay the fees stated in the Service Order Form and fees for any Supplemental Services as described in Section 2(b) above. Rackspace's first invoice under a Service Order Form shall include set up fees and a prorated part of the monthly recurring fee from the Service Commencement Date to the last day of the calendar month. Following the Service Commencement Date, monthly recurring fees shall be invoiced in advance on or around the first day of each calendar month, and are due [**] days from Customer's receipt of an invoice. Invoices for Supplemental Services, excess data transfer, reinstatement of service, switching and upgrade fees and other non-recurring amounts are due [**] days from Customer's receipt of an invoice. Following expiration of the Initial Term, unless Rackspace and Customer have agreed to a Renewal Term as described in Section 3 above, Rackspace may modify the monthly recurring fees for the Managed Hosting Service on thirty (30) days advance written notice. Fees not disputed within one hundred eighty (180) days of due date are conclusively deemed accurate. Payments must be made in United States dollars.
     (b) Collections. Rackspace may suspend any or all Services on [**] days' advance written notice to Customer if payment for any Service is overdue by more than [**] days. Customer agrees to pay Rackspace's then current reinstatement fee following a suspension of Service for non-payment. Rackspace may charge interest on amounts that are overdue by [**] days or more at the lesser of 1% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law. Customer agrees to pay Rackspace's reasonable costs of collection of overdue amounts, including collection agency fees, attorneys' fees and court costs.
     (c) Early Termination. Customer acknowledges that the amount of the monthly recurring fee for the Managed Hosting Service is based on Customer's agreement to pay the monthly recurring fees for the entire Term. Without limiting any other remedy available to Rackspace arising from an early termination of the Agreement, in the event Rackspace terminates the Agreement for Customer's breach of the Agreement in accordance with Section 13(b) (i) ó (iii) (Termination), or Customer terminates the Managed Hosting Service other than in accordance with Section 13(a) (i) - (iii) (Termination), all fees due under the Agreement, including the monthly recurring fees for the remaining part of the Term, are due thirty (30) days following termination of the Managed Hosting Service.
     (d) Taxes. Customer shall remit to Rackspace all sales, VAT or similar tax imposed on the provision of the Services (but not in the nature of an income tax on Rackspace) regardless of whether Rackspace fails to collect the tax at the time the related Services are provided. Customer will provide such information and documentation reasonably requested by Rackspace to determine whether Rackspace is obligated to collect VAT from Customer.
5. Customer Obligations. Customer agrees to do all of the following at its expense:
     (a) Security Precautions. Use reasonable security precautions in connection with its use of the Services (including encrypting any Protected Information transmitted to or from, or stored by Customer on, the servers or storage devices used by Customer) and, if Customer resells Rackspace's Services, require its customers and end users to use reasonable security precautions;

Page 3 of 12


 
     (b) Law, AUP. Comply with all legal requirements applicable to Customer's use of the Services and with the AUP, and if Customer resells Rackspace's Service, require its customers and end users to comply with applicable legal requirements and the AUP; and
     (c) Investigation of AUP. Cooperate with Rackspace's reasonable investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP.
6. AUP. Customer agrees that Rackspace may, in its reasonable commercial judgment, amend the AUP from time to time to further detail or describe reasonable restrictions and conditions on Customer's use of the Services. Amendments to the AUP are effective on the earlier of Rackspace's notice to Customer that an amendment has been made, or the beginning of any Renewal Term or Extended Term. However, if: (i) the amendment would materially and adversely affect Customer, (ii) Customer provides Rackspace with a written notice describing its objection to the amendment in reasonable detail within [**] Business Days of the effective date of the amendment, and (iii) Rackspace does not agree to waive the amendment as to Customer within five (5) Business Days of Customer's notice, then Customer may terminate the Agreement without liability as provided in Section 13 (a)(iii) (Termination).
7. Suspension of Service. Customer agrees that Rackspace may suspend Services to Customer without liability if: (i) Rackspace reasonably believes that the Services are being used in violation of the Agreement or applicable law; (ii) Customer fails to cooperate with any reasonable Rackspace investigation of any suspected violation of the AUP; (iii) there is a denial of service attack on Customer's servers or other event for which Rackspace reasonably believes that the suspension of Services is necessary to protect its network or its other customers; or (iv) requested by a law enforcement or government agency. Information on Rackspace's servers will be unavailable during a suspension of Services. Rackspace shall give Customer written notice of a suspension under this Section, which notice shall be at least forty eight (48) hours in advance of the suspension unless a law enforcement or government agency directs otherwise or suspension on shorter or contemporaneous notice is necessary to protect Rackspace or Rackspace's other customers from an imminent and significant risk. Rackspace shall not suspend the Services if the grounds for the suspension is cured during the notice period, and shall promptly reinstate suspended Services when the grounds for the suspension are cured.
8. Representations and Warranties.
     (a) Reciprocal. Rackspace represents and warrants to Customer, and Customer represents and warrants to Rackspace, that: (i) it has the power and authority and the legal right to enter into the Agreement and to perform its obligations under the Agreement; (ii) it has taken all necessary action on its part to authorize the execution and delivery of the Agreement; and, (iii) the execution and delivery of the Agreement and the performance of its obligations hereunder do not conflict with or violate applicable laws or regulations, and do not conflict with or constitute a default under its charter documents.

9. Unauthorized Use of Service. Rackspace agrees only to perform the specific security services described in the Service Order Form and other part of the Agreement. Customer is otherwise responsible for the security of the servers provided pursuant to this Agreement. Customer shall be responsible for unauthorized use of the Services by any person, unless such unauthorized use results from Rackspace's failure to perform its obligations under the Agreement.
10. Indemnification. The parties agree that the indemnification obligations defined in this Section shall be in lieu of and supersede any indemnification obligations that may otherwise exist by law.
     (a) Customer. Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Rackspace, Rackspace's affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, attorneys, agents, and employees from and against any and all claims, requests for injunctive relief, demands, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, fines, punitive damages, amounts in interest, expenses and disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys' fees) brought by a third party under any theory of legal liability arising out of or related to any of the following: (i) actual or alleged use of the Services in violation of: (A) the AUP, (B) any other part of the Agreement, or (C) applicable law, by any person regardless of whether such person has been authorized to use the Services by Customer, except for unauthorized use that results from Rackspace's negligence or failure to perform its obligations under the Agreement, (ii) actual or alleged breach by Customer of its obligations to its customers or end users; and (iii) any dispute between persons who claim to have authority to act for Customer in connection with the control of Customer's account with Rackspace.
     (b) Reciprocal. Each party agrees to indemnity and hold harmless the other party, the other party's affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, attorneys, agents, and employees from and against any and all claims, requests for injunctive relief, demands, liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, fines, punitive damages, amounts in interest, expenses and disbursements of any kind and nature whatsoever (including reasonable attorneys' fees) brought by a third party under any theory of legal liability arising out of or related to the indemnifying party's actual or alleged: (i) gross negligence, (ii) willful misconduct; and (iii) infringement or misappropriation of a third party's copyright, trade secret, patent, trademark, or other proprietary right.

     (c) Procedures. A party seeking indemnification under this Section shall provide prompt notice of its claim for indemnification to the indemnifying party; provided, however, that failure to give prompt notice shall not affect the indemnifying party's obligations under this Section unless and to the extent that the failure materially prejudices the defense of the matter. The indemnified party will have the right to select counsel to defend it in respect of any indemnified matter under this Section; provided, however, that the counsel selected must be qualified to defend the indemnified matter in the reasonable judgment of the indemnified party. The indemnifying party shall reimburse the indemnified party for actual fees and expenses incurred by the indemnified party to defend an indemnified matter, including the reasonable fees and expenses of outside counsel retained by the indemnified party.

Notwithstanding anything in this Section to the contrary, if Rackspace is indemnifying multiple customers related to the subject matter of the indemnification, the indemnifying party shall have the right to seek consolidation of all such actions and to select counsel to defend the actions. Amounts due under this Section shall be paid as incurred and may be offset against other amounts due under the Agreement.

     (a) RACKSPACE DOES NOT WARRANT OR REPRESENT THAT THE SERVICES WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, ERROR-FREE, OR COMPLETELY SECURE. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THERE ARE RISKS INHERENT IN INTERNET CONNECTIVITY THAT COULD RESULT IN THE LOSS OF CUSTOMER'S PRIVACY, CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION, AND PROPERTY.

recurring fee for the [**] following the the second [**] of unavailability in a calendar month (up to [**]% of customer's monthly recurring fee for the month in which the unavailability occurs) for the affected SAN storage.
3.   PATCHING
Operating System-When software vulnerabilities are revealed and addressed by a vendor patch, Rackspace obtains the patches from the vendor and categorizes the urgency of application as either "critical" or "non-critical" in nature. The determination of the critical/non-critical nature of patches is solely at the discretion of Rackspace, and Rackspace shall have no liability with respect to such determination. Rackspace will conduct testing for patches in its lab and on its internal production environment. Patches will be applied after they have been approved and qualified by Rackspace technicians. Non-critical patches are typically applied on a monthly basis whereas critical patches are applied on an ëas needed' basis.
Rackspace will apply any vendor supplied patch to Intensive supported software within [**] of receiving a written request from Customer. Patches will be applied with the understanding that the patch has not been fully tested by Rackspace, and no guarantees are made by Rackspace as to the outcome of application of such patches. Rackspace will only apply vendor supplied and vendor supported patches. Customer will be notified via support ticket prior to the

INTENSIVE SLA
application of patches, unless agreed to otherwise.
Remedy: In the event that Rackspace materially fails to apply patches in accordance with the standards set forth in section 3.1.1 above, and such failure directly and adversely affects Customer's hosted configuration, Customer is entitled to a service credit of $[**].
4.   BACKUP AND RESTORE
4.1. Data Backup
Rackspace will only perform backups if Customer purchases the managed backup service. Upon purchase, Rackspace will schedule, perform, monitor, and maintain Customer data backups.
4.1.1. Default Backup Policy ó Rackspace will backup all files and file systems on each server in Customer's configuration. Default backup policy includes [**] backups of all files to a central tape library. Data backups are retained onsite for [**] unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Remedy: In the event that Rackspace fails to perform data backups in accordance with the standards set forth above and such failure directly and adversely affects Customer's hosted configuration, Customer is entitled to a service credit of $[**] for the first event, $[**] for the second event, and $[**] for the third and subsequent events.
4.1.2. Database Backups ó Open database files cannot be backed up without the use of a software backup agent. Databases will only be backed up if such a backup software agent specific to Customer's database software is utilized, or if databases are dumped to flat files prior to scheduled backup. If a database agent is not available, Customer is responsible for dumping databases to a flat file;

INTENSIVE SLA
otherwise databases will not be backed up. Rackspace will not be held responsible for backing up or restoring any open files.
4.2. Data Restoration
4.2.1. Local Restores ó Rackspace will initiate restoration of Customer's data within [**] of receipt of Customer's written request. Customer is allowed [**] free local restoration events per calendar month. Additional restores will be billed at Rackspace's standard hourly rates.
Remedy: In the event that Rackspace fails to perform data restores in accordance with the standards set forth above, Customer is entitled to a service credit of $[**] for the first event, $[**] for the second event, and $[**] for the third and subsequent events.
4.2.2. Offsite Restores ó Rackspace will initiate restoration of Customer's data within [**] of receipt of Customer's written request. Customer is allowed [**] free offsite restoration event per calendar month. Additional restores will be billed at Rackspace's standard hourly rates.
Remedy: In the event that Rackspace fails to perform data restores in accordance with the standards set forth above, Customer is entitled to a service credit of $[**].
NOTE: Due to the fact that backups are made over a period of hours and are not an instant point-in-time snapshot, a full server restore will likely provide inconsistent results. In the event of a complete server recovery ("full restore"), Rackspace cannot guarantee that the restore procedure will provide a fully functional operating system and/or application. Rackspace recommends that a partial restore be used to recover specific files necessary to rebuild a server, rather than performing a full restore. If a full restore is required and requested by Customer, Rackspace will undertake such restoration with the understanding that it does not guarantee the results. Rackspace recommends migrating to a new server as soon as possible after a full restore to ensure reliability and proper functionality of the operating system and applications.
