         (b) Intersections acknowledges that DMS has and retains all right,
title and interest in and to the Licensed Software and that full title to and
ownership of the Licensed Software, including without limitation all
intellectual property rights, remains with DMS. Intersections has no rights in

causing the Licensed Software to be in the public domain. Intersections may not

cancellation fee in the amount of $3,500,000 within 90 days of such Cessation

indemnify and hold Intersections harmless from and against any third party claim
of patent or copyright infringement relating to the Licensed Software, provided

information, all of which are confidential, proprietary information and trade
secrets of DMS (collectively the "DMS Confidential Information"). Intersections
agrees to hold all such DMS Confidential Information, and any other information
and/or materials identified by DMS as confidential, for Internal Purposes solely
as contemplated by this Agreement and shall not, without specific prior written
consent of an authorized officer of DMS, utilize in any manner, communicate or
disclose any part thereof to any third party. Intersections shall require all of
its agents and employees to sign a confidentiality agreement satisfactory to DMS
and shall vigorously enforce such agreement. Intersections acknowledges that (i)
the restrictions contained in this Section 19 are reasonable and necessary to
protect DMS' legitimate interests, (ii) remedies at law will be inadequate and
any violation of these restrictions will cause irreparable damage to DMS within
a short period of time, and (iii) DMS will be entitled to injunctive relief
against each violation. Intersections further agrees that all confidentiality
commitment hereunder shall survive termination of this Agreement for any reason.
DMS agrees that in the course of


                                      -11-
<PAGE>
performing its services hereunder it will receive or learn certain proprietary
and confidential information about Intersections, including its business
practices, client relationships, and customer data (collectively, the
"Intersections Confidential Information"). DMS agrees to hold all such
Intersections Confidential Information, and any other information and/or
materials identified by Intersections as confidential, for Internal Purposes
solely as contemplated by this Agreement and shall not, without specific prior
written consent of an authorized officer of Intersections, utilize in any
manner, communicate or disclose any part thereof to any third party.
Intersections shall require all of its agents and employees to sign a
confidentiality agreement satisfactory to Intersections and shall vigorously
enforce such agreement. Intersections acknowledges that (i) the restrictions
contained in this Section 19 are reasonable and necessary to protect
Intersections' legitimate interests, (ii) remedies at law will be inadequate and
any violation of these restrictions will cause irreparable damage to
Intersections within a short period of time, and (iii) Intersections will be
entitled to injunctive relief against each violation. Intersections further
agrees that all confidentiality commitment hereunder shall survive termination
of this Agreement for any reason.

         Section 20. DISPUTE RESOLUTION. (a) The parties agree that other than
the right to apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for a temporary
restraining order to preserve the status quo or prevent irreparable harm pending
the selection and confirmation of a mediator or arbitrator, any dispute between
DMS and Intersections under this Agreement or involving its interpretations or
obligations shall be determined by mediation and, if necessary, by arbitration
as follows:

         (b) In the event of any dispute arising out of this Agreement, as a
condition to commencing arbitration, the aggrieved party shall give the other
party written notice of the matters considered to be in dispute and if the
dispute is not settled within ten business days of the receipt of such notice by
the other party, then the dispute shall be submitted to mediation in New York,
New York, unless the parties agree otherwise. Costs of mediation shall be borne
equally by the parties. Mediation of the dispute shall be completed within 15
days of its commencement unless the parties extend the time by mutual agreement,
or unless the mediator declares the parties to be at an impasse. In the event of
an impasse or completion of the mediation without resolution of the dispute, the
aggrieved party may initiate arbitration as provided in subparagraph (c).

         (c) Any questions or disputes (including disputes as to any amounts
owed) that have first been submitted to mediation in accordance with the
procedure in subparagraph (a) shall be submitted to arbitration in accordance
with the then pertaining rules for commercial arbitration of the American
Arbitration Association by a single arbitrator selected by the American
Arbitration Association or by an arbitrator agreed upon by the parties. Any such
arbitration shall be held in New York, New York unless the parties agree
otherwise. The arbitrator shall have substantial expertise in the field of
computer software technology and licensing. The parties shall be entitled to
conduct reasonable discovery, in accordance with the New York Rules of Civil
Procedure and applicable case law, prior to the arbitration hearing, and the New
York Rules of Evidence shall be applicable to the arbitration proceeding. The
decision of the arbitrators shall


                                      -12-
<PAGE>
be final and binding on DMS and Intersections and may be entered and enforced in
any court of competent jurisdiction by either party.

         Section 21. GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS. (a) Entire Agreement. This
Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to its
subject matter, and supersedes any and all related prior understanding and
agreements, oral or written. This Agreement cannot be modified or amended except
in writing signed by both parties.

         (b) Force Majeure. DMS shall be excused from delays in performing or
from its failure to perform hereunder, and such delays or failures shall not
constitute breaches of this Agreement, to the extent that such delays or
failures result from causes beyond its reasonable control, including but not
limited to the acts or omissions of the credit reporting bureaus (e.g., one or
more of the credit bureaus ceases to provide credit information to DMS), labor
disputes, strikes, or other labor or industrial disturbances, acts of God,
floods, lightning, shortages of materials, utility or communication failures,
earthquakes, casualty, war, riots, insurrections, embargoes, regulations or
orders from any government, agency or subdivision thereof; provided that, in
order to be excused from delay or failure to perform, DMS must act diligently to
remedy the cause of such delay or failure.

         (c) No Agency. DMS does not undertake by this Agreement or otherwise to
perform any obligation of Intersections, whether by regulation or contract. In
no way is DMS to be construed as the agent or acting as the agent of
Intersections in any respect, all other provisions of this Agreement
notwithstanding. DMS does not grant to Intersections any authority of any kind
to bind DMS in any respect whatsoever. Intersections does not grant to DMS any
authority of any kind to bind Intersections in any respect whatsoever.

         (d) Governing Law. THE VALIDITY, CONSTRUCTION AND PERFORMANCE OF THIS
AGREEMENT AND THE LEGAL RELATIONS AMONG THE PARTIES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND
CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

declared or found to be illegal, unenforceable or void, then each provision not

         (f) No Waiver. No delay or omission by either party hereto to exercise
any right or power occurring upon any non-compliance or default by the other
party with respect to any of the terms of this Agreement shall impair any such
right or power or be construed to be a waiver thereof. A waiver by either of the
parties hereto of any of the covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed
by the other shall not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach
thereof or of any other covenant, condition, or agreement herein contained.
Unless


                                      -13-

                                    EXHIBIT A
                        SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT


      This SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE AGREEMENT (this "Agreement"), made and
entered into this 6th day of January, 2000 by and between Digital Matrix
Systems, Inc., a Texas corporation (hereinafter "DMS"), and Intersections Inc.,
a Delaware corporation (hereinafter "Intersections").

                              W I T N E S S E T H :

      WHEREAS, DMS and Intersections have entered into that certain Software
License Agreement of even date herewith (the "License Agreement") whereby DMS
has agreed to license to Intersections certain computer software products
proprietary to DMS which enable Intersections to perform certain report
monitoring and merging operations; and

      WHEREAS, in connection with the License Agreement, DMS and Intersections
have agreed to enter into a separate agreement whereby DMS will provide
maintenance and support services for the Licensed Software (as herein defined);
and

      NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual covenants and
agreements herein set forth, the parties, intending to be legally bound, agree
as follows:

      Section 1. DEFINITIONS. For purposes of this Agreement, the following
additional definitions will apply:

      (a) "Credit Toolkit(TM)" shall refer to DMS' proprietary Credit
Toolkit(TM) computer software, which is described on Schedule A.

      (b) "Licensed Software" shall refer collectively to the Credit Toolkit(TM)
and the Merge and Monitoring System listed on Schedule A attached hereto.

      (c) "Maintenance Term." The term of support and maintenance commences
upon the date of this Agreement and, unless earlier terminated pursuant to the
terms and conditions hereof, shall continue until the termination or expiration
of Intersections' license in respect of either item of the Licensed Software.

      (d) "Merge and Monitoring System" shall refer to DMS' proprietary Merge
and Monitoring System computer software, which is described on Schedule A
attached hereto.

      (e) "Error." Either a failure of the Licensed Software to conform in all
material respects to the Specifications, or a program or documentation defect in
the Licensed Software resulting in (a) inability to use the Licensed Software,
(b) a critical adverse impact on Intersections' operations, or (c) damage to the
integrity of Intersections' data base. However, any condition resulting from
unauthorized maintenance to the Licensed Software; misuse of or damage to the
<PAGE>
Licensed Software in any respect other than by personnel of DMS; hardware,
components or software not provided by DMS; or the actions of Intersections,
will not be considered an Error.

      (f) "Error Correction." Either a software modification or addition that,
when made or added to the Licensed Software, corrects the Error, or a procedure
or routine that, when observed in the regular operation of the Licensed
Software, eliminates the practical adverse effect of the Error on Intersections.

      (g) "Enhancement." Any modification or addition that, when made or added
to the License Software, materially changes its utility, efficiency, functional
capability or application, but that does not constitute solely an Error
Correction.

      (h) "Software Update." A subsequent version of the Licensed Software that
includes Enhancements and/or Error Corrections.

      (i) "Specifications" shall refer to the functional performance parameters
of the Licensed Software provided in writing by DMS to Intersections.

      (j) "Standard Business Hours." The hours between 8:30 A.M. and 5:30 P.M.
Dallas, Texas Time on the days Monday through Friday, excluding regularly
scheduled holidays of DMS.

      Section 2. SCOPE OF SERVICES. During the Maintenance Term and subject to
the terms and conditions set forth herein, DMS will provide the basic support
and maintenance services described in this Section 2 (the "Basic Maintenance
Services") in support of the Licensed Software, during Standard Business Hours.

      (a)   In providing Basic Maintenance Services, DMS will:

            (i) Expend reasonable efforts to provide an Error Correction
      designed to solve or by-pass a reported Error. If such Error has been
      corrected in a Software Update, it will be necessary for Intersections to
      install and implement that Software Update; otherwise, the Error
      Correction will be provided in the form of a temporary fix, to be used
      until a Software Update containing the permanent Error Correction is
      available.

            (ii) Provide Intersections with Software Updates, if necessary, to
      support the Specifications. DMS will send to Intersections a copy of any
      such Software Update for a nominal fee equal to the cost of media and
      reasonable postage and handling charges.

            (iii) Provide telephone support related to the Licensed Software
      during Standard Business Hours.

            (iv) Provide those support services that DMS generally provides at
      no additional charge to other licensees of the Licensed Software when
      covered by Basic Maintenance Services.




                                      -2-
<PAGE>
            (v) Consult regarding the operation of the Licensed Software, the
      processes to perform certain credit reporting monitoring and merging
      operation at Intersections' premises, and the development of additional
      functionalities to the Licensed Software, during Standard Business Hours.

      (b) DMS will provide support and maintenance services beyond the level of
Basic Maintenance Services upon which DMS and Intersections may agree on a time
and materials basis at DMS' then-current standard rates.

      (c) DMS shall not be obligated to provide the Basic Maintenance Services
unless and until all of the following conditions have been met: (i)
Intersections shall have been unable to solve the problem despite Intersections'
exercise of reasonable effort and diligence after consulting with DMS; (ii) the
problem is the result of a reproducible program error or malfunction caused by
DMS; (iii) the Licensed Software has not been changed, modified or damaged
(excluding modifications made under the direct supervision of DMS); (iv)
Intersections shall have installed and implemented Software Updates such that
the version/release level of the Licensed Software is one supported by DMS
pursuant to Section 2(d) below; and (v) Intersections shall have installed any
hardware or software necessary for the proper operation of the Licensed Software
and provided by DMS.

      (d) DMS shall have no obligation to support or maintain any version of the
Licensed Software except (i) the then current release of the Licensed Software
and (ii) the immediately preceding release of the Licensed Software for a period
of six months after it is first superseded.

      Section 3. ENHANCEMENTS TO LICENSED SOFTWARE. Subject to Section 5(d),
Intersections may at any time during the term of this Agreement request that DMS
make Enhancements to the Licensed Software.

      Section 4. OWNERSHIP. Unless otherwise agreed to in writing by the
parties, any modifications to the Licensed Software, including all intellectual
property rights associated therewith, made or provided by DMS hereunder (whether
alone or with any contribution from Intersections or its personnel) shall be
owned exclusively by DMS. To the extent Intersections or its personnel may
acquire any right or interest therein by operation of law, Intersections
irrevocably assigns all such rights and interest exclusively to DMS.
Intersections shall maintain and enforce agreements and policies with its
personnel sufficient to give effect to the provisions of this Section 4.

      Section 5. FEES AND CHARGES.

      (a) The fees in consideration for DMS's agreement to provide Basic
Maintenance Services hereunder are included as part of the consideration for
DMS' execution of the License Agreement. Such fees shall be paid by
Intersections in accordance with the schedule set forth in the License
Agreement.




                                      -3-
<PAGE>
      (b) Subject to payment of any additional maintenance fees that may apply,
Intersections may, from time to time, amend Schedule A to add maintenance for
additional Licensed Programs. The amount of the maintenance fees for any
Licensed Programs added to Schedule A after the execution of this Agreement
shall be as specified in DMS' then current price list, which is subject to
change without notice. Any other amendments to Schedule A shall be subject to
payment of any additional maintenance fees that may apply as a result of such
amendment. No modifications to Schedule A shall be effective unless and until an
amended Schedule A is signed by both parties and all applicable maintenance and
administrative fees have been paid.

      (c) Intersections will reimburse DMS for travel expenses (i.e.
transportation, lodging and meals) and telephone expenses incurred by DMS under
this Agreement in rendering services more than fifty (50) miles from DMS'
headquarters in Dallas, Texas. DMS will provide backup documentation for
expenses as requested by Intersections.

      (d) With respect to services provided by DMS pursuant to Section 3 hereof,
DMS will notify Intersections within thirty (30) days after receiving
Intersections' request whether it has determined that the Enhancement would be
of sufficient interest to enough end-users that DMS intends to provide such
modification as part of its regular maintenance service. Such notice shall
specify an estimated date on which the Enhancement may be supplied. Otherwise,
DMS will notify Intersections that it is determined that the Enhancement will be
undertaken only on an individual basis and provide Intersections with a written
estimate of the charges for performing such Enhancement. If Intersections
accepts DMS' proposal by written notice, DMS agrees to perform the Enhancement
for the estimated charges, plus out-of-pocket expenses for travel and materials.
Intersections acknowledges that DMS may impose additional charges, calculated at
its then-current time and material rates for work performed to accommodate
revisions to the request for Enhancements if such revisions are requested by
Intersections after Intersections accepts the estimate.

      Section 6. TERMINATION. (a) With respect to either the Credit Toolkit(TM)
or the Merge and Monitoring System, the support and maintenance services
hereunder will terminate immediately upon any termination or expiration of
Intersections' license in respect of either item of such Licensed Software.

      (b) Either party may terminate this Agreement at any time in the event of
a material breach of the terms hereof by the other party if such party shall
fail to cure such material breach within thirty (30) days of receipt of written
notice thereof. For purposes of this Agreement, and without limiting the
foregoing, a material breach shall be deemed to have occurred upon an Insolvency
Event (as defined in the License Agreement).

      (c) DMS may terminate this Agreement if Intersections fails to pay any
amounts that are payable to DMS under this Agreement or the License Agreement
within ten (10) days after any such amount becomes due. The requirement to pay
within ten days is waived for payments due prior to January 31, 2000 as long as
Intersections has paid all prior due payments by January 31, 2000.




                                      -4-
<PAGE>
      (d) Upon written notice to Intersections, DMS shall have the right to
discontinue providing the support and maintenance services in respect of either
the Credit Toolkit(TM) or the Merge and Monitoring System if: (i) the version of
such item of Licensed Software being used by Intersections is no longer
supported by DMS as provided in Section 2(d) of this Agreement; and (ii)
Intersections shall fail to install a version of such item of Licensed Software
that is currently being supported within 30 days after Intersections' receipt of
such notice.

      Section 7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND REMEDIES. (a) DMS MAKES NO
WARRANTIES HEREUNDER, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE).

      (b) The total liability of DMS for all claims, whether in contract, tort
or otherwise, arising out of, connected with, or resulting from any performance
or nonperformance hereunder shall not exceed the fees allocable to the service
which gives rise to the claim. IN NO EVENT SHALL DMS BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL, INDIRECT OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION,
DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF REVENUE, CLAIMS OF CUSTOMERS FOR SERVICE INTERRUPTIONS OR
FAILURE OF SUPPLY, AND COSTS AND EXPENSES INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH LABOR,
OVERHEAD, TRANSPORTATION, INSTALLATION, OR REMOVAL OF EQUIPMENT OR PROGRAMMING
OR SUBSTITUTE FACILITIES OR SUPPLY SOURCES.

      Section 8. MISCELLANEOUS. (a) Entire Agreement. This Agreement contains
the entire understanding of the parties with respect to its subject matter, and
supersedes any and all related prior understanding and agreements, oral or
written. This Agreement cannot be modified or amended except in writing signed
by both parties.

      (b) Force Majeure. DMS shall be excused from delays in performing or from
its failure to perform hereunder, and such delays or failures shall not
constitute breaches of this Agreement, to the extent that such delays or
failures result from causes beyond its reasonable control, including but not
limited to labor disputes, strikes, or other labor or industrial disturbances,
acts of God, floods, lightening, shortages of materials, utility or
communication failures, earthquakes, casualty, war, riots, insurrections,
embargoes, regulations or orders from any government, agency or subdivision
thereof; provided that, in order to be excused from delay or failure to perform,
DMS must act diligently to remedy the cause of such delay or failure.

      (c) No Agency. DMS, in furnishing services to Intersections, is providing
services as an independent contractor. DMS does not undertake by this Agreement
or otherwise to perform any obligation of Intersections, whether by regulation
or contract. In no way is DMS to be construed as the agent or acting as the
agent of Intersections in any respect, all other provisions of this Agreement
notwithstanding.

      (d) Governing Law. THE VALIDITY, CONSTRUCTION AND PERFORMANCE OF THIS
AGREEMENT AND THE LEGAL RELATIONS AMONG THE PARTIES SHALL BE GOVERNED BY AND
CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.

this Agreement or involving its interpretations or obligations shall be
determined in accordance with the dispute resolution provisions of the License
Agreement, which provisions are incorporated herein by reference.

      (f) Conflicting or Invalid Terms. To the extent any provisions of this
Agreement are inconsistent, or in conflict, with any of the provisions of the
License Agreement, the terms of the License Agreement shall control. If any
provision of this Agreement is declared or found to be illegal, unenforceable or
void, then each provision not so effected will remain in full force and effect.

      (g) No Waiver. No delay or omission by either party hereto to exercise any
right or power occurring upon any non-compliance or default by the other party
with respect to any of the terms of this Agreement shall impair any such right
or power or be construed to be a waiver thereof. A waiver by either of the
parties hereto of any of the covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed
by the other shall not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach
thereof or of any other covenant, condition, or agreement herein contained.
Unless otherwise stated, all remedies provided for in this Agreement shall be
cumulative and in addition to and not in lieu of any other remedies available to
either party at law, in equity, or otherwise.
