No provision contained in this Agreement shall be construed to transfer to Company or any other entity or person any title or ownership interest in any Intertrust Property.

Limited Maintenance and Support Service
- 1. Definitions.
- (a) “Functional Release” means a subsequent release of Licensed Technology that implements features and functionality not previously present in the Licensed Technology. Functional Releases will generally be backward compatible, such that code using the public interfaces (only) of a previous Functional Release will not require modification to use the new release. At times, however, incompatibilities may be introduced, as reflected in the release version numbering scheme set forth in Appendix 2. Functional Releases include applicable fixes made in the current Maintenance Release. Not all Functional Releases are necessarily supported, and there is no representation of compatibility on any internal or non-documented interfaces.
- (b) “Initial Response Time” means the length of time after Intertrust’s receipt of notice of a Problem during which Intertrust shall initiate a technical assessment of the Problem and acknowledge to Company its receipt of notice of the Problem.
- (c) “Maintenance Release” means a subsequent release of Licensed Technology that corrects, patches or otherwise fixes any Problem (which may be reported by any source) without providing any features or functionality in addition to those provided by the previous release of the Licensed Technology. Maintenance Releases are cumulative and also include applicable One-off Bug Fixes made up to the code freeze for the Maintenance Release.
- (d) “One-off Bug Fix” means an exceptional fix to an extremely severe problem that is needed prior to the next scheduled Maintenance Release.
(e) “Problem” means a defect where a Versioned Software Release listed in Appendix 1 does not perform as defined in its documentation. Problems are classified in four (4) categories:
- • Critical Problem. A Problem that causes major and immediate service interruption or disruption for which no work-around is available. Critical Problems will likely be resolved via One-off Bug Fixes.
- • Major Problem. A Problem that causes significant service interruption or disruption, but for which a work-around exists but is difficult or expensive to deploy.
- • Minor Problem. A Problem for which a solution is required and a work-around exists and is relatively easy to deploy.
- • Trivial Problem. A Problem for which a solution is nice to have but not required.
- (f) “Problem Resolution” means the implementation and release of a correction, patch, fix, alteration, or temporary workaround that eliminates a Problem.
- (g) “Target Resolution Time” means the time objective for Intertrust to either resolve the Problem or define a mutually acceptable resolution plan (presuming that Intertrust is provided access to the relevant Licensed Technology during a period in which the system on which it resides is not undergoing maintenance or otherwise unavailable).
- (h) “Ticket” means the mechanism defined by Intertrust to record Problems and track their resolution.
- (i) “Versioned Software Release” means a versioned package of source code or binaries with well-defined and documented public interfaces, performance measures, changes from applicable previous releases, and test coverage. Versioned Software Releases come in different types and may have specific lifetimes, as set forth in Appendix 2.
- 2. Company Responsibilities. Intertrust will only accept Problems reported by Company using the mechanism defined herein. For a Problem to be accepted for resolution, Company must provide a reproducible case using one of the specified release versions listed in Appendix 1, using tools available or made available to Company by Intertrust. If a specific device is necessary to reproduce the Problem, the device as well as the necessary tools and instructions to debug, build, and test the device image must be made available to Intertrust. If access to a server is necessary to observe the Problem or collect logs, access to that server must be provided.
- 3. Issuance of Releases. During the period that Company subscribes to this service, Intertrust shall provide Company all Functional Releases, Maintenance Releases and One-off Bug Fixes, as they are issued by Intertrust in its discretion. It is currently anticipated that Maintenance Releases will occur generally at three (3) month intervals unless no bugs have been fixed in the previous 3 months.
- 4. Problem Reporting and Resolution. Problems may be reported by submitting information describing them to the Intertrust Support Portal. Intertrust shall not be obligated to engage in any Problem Resolution concerning any problem reported pursuant to this section unless and until Company complies with the requirements set forth in Exhibit E pertaining to the ordering of Ticket Service.
- 5. New Feature Requests or Suggestions. Requests for new features or for functionalities beyond those described in the current documentation of each Licensed Technology are not subject to this Exhibit and will be treated by Intertrust in its sole discretion. Company shall communicate to Intertrust its knowledge of any problems encountered with the Licensed Technology or any modifications, design changes, or improvements of the Licensed Technology that it recommends (“Enhancements“). Company further agrees: (i) that Intertrust shall own all rights, title, and interest in and to any modifications, enhancements, or improvements to the Licensed Technology made by Intertrust as the result of a suggestion provided by Company, without the payment of any additional consideration thereof to Company; and (ii) that, if applicable upon Intertrust’s reasonable request, it will cooperate with Intertrust in connection with perfecting and enforcing Intertrust’s rights, title, and interest thereto.
- 6. Warranty. Intertrust represents and warrants that the services provided under this Exhibit will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner. Should Company report to Intertrust within 10 business days of its receipt of services hereunder that such services have not been in compliance with such warranty, Company’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be to have Intertrust re-perform the relevant services until the defect(s) in such services is/are rectified, at no additional charge to Company. THE FOREGOING PROVIDES INTERTRUST’S ONLY WARRANTIES TO COMPANY REGARDING THE SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS EXHIBIT, AND COMPANY’S ONLY REMEDY FOR BREACH OF SUCH WARRANTIES. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.
Appendix 1 – Versioned Software Releases Covered by this Agreement
(including maintenance release streams)
Appendix 2 – Release Version Numbering & Support Lifetime
Release Version Numbering
The numbering notation follows the N.f.m.b convention, where:
- • N is a major Functional Release that breaks compatibility with an N-1 version
- • f is a Functional Release that maintains backward compatibility with the f-1 version
- • m is a Maintenance Release that contains only identified bug fixes with respect to the m-1 release
- • b is a One-off Bug Fix release that fixes only a given set of bugs
For clarity, lesser version streams are said to be “subordinate” to higher version streams. As such, Functional Releases are subordinate to major Functional Releases, and Maintenance Releases are subordinate to Functional Releases.
Software Release Support Lifetime
A number of the software items covered by this exhibit have a product lifecycle typical of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) software that is independent of the specific project with respect to which it is deployed by Company. As a result, Functional Releases and Maintenance Releases often include features and bug fixes made at the request of third parties. In addition, specific versions of Functional Releases and Maintenance Releases are retired after a certain period of time. Once retired, any support for that specific N.f.m version is no longer available. Unless explicitly specified in an Addendum to this document, the following timelines apply:
- • Maintenance Releases of version “m-1” are retired 6 months after the release of the Maintenance Release of version “m” (based on the same N.f stream).
- • Functional Releases of version “f-1”, and all subordinate releases thereof, are retired 1 year after the release of the version “f”.
Major Functional Releases of version N-1 are only retired if no commercial support agreements exist to extend their support. When version N is retired, all subordinate Functional Release and Maintenance Release versions are retired.
- 1. Ticket Service Description.
