6. SUPPORT AND MAINTENANCE
Synametrics Technologies offers multiple optional "Support & Maintenance Package(s)" ("SMP") for the
version of Software product edition that you have licensed, which you may elect to purchase
in addition to your Software license. The Support Period, hereinafter defined, covered
by such SMP shall be delineated at such time as you elect to purchase a SMP. Your rights
with respect to support and maintenance as well as your upgrade eligibility depend on
your decision to purchase SMP and the level of SMP that you have purchased:
(a) If you have not purchased SMP, you will receive the Software AS IS and will not
receive any maintenance releases or updates. However, Synametrics Technologies, at its option and in
its sole discretion on a case by case basis, may decide to offer maintenance releases to
you as a courtesy, but these maintenance releases will not include any new features in
excess of the feature set at the time of your purchase of the Software. In addition,
Synametrics Technologies will provide free technical support to you for thirty (30) days after the
date of your purchase (the "Support Period" for the purposes of this paragraph a), and
Synametrics Technologies, in its sole discretion on a case by case basis, may also provide free courtesy
technical support during your thirty (30)-day evaluation period. Technical support is
provided via a Web-based support form and via email. There is no guaranteed response time.
(b) If you have purchased SMP, then solely for the duration of its delineated
Support Period, you are eligible to receive the version of the Software edition that
you have licensed and all maintenance releases and updates for that edition that are
released during your Support Period. For the duration of your SMP's Support Period, you
will also be eligible to receive upgrades to the comparable edition of the next version
of the Software that succeeds the Software edition that you have licensed for applicable
upgrades released during your Support Period. The specific upgrade edition that you are
eligible to receive based on your Support Period is further detailed in the SMP that you
have purchased. Software that is introduced as separate product is not included in SMP.
Maintenance releases, updates and upgrades may or may not include additional features.
In addition, Synametrics Technologies will provide Priority Technical Support to you for the duration
of the Support Period. Priority Technical Support is provided via a Web-based support
form only, and Synametrics Technologies will make commercially reasonable efforts to respond via e-mail
to all requests within forty-eight (48) hours during Synametrics Technologies business hours
(MO-FR, 9am EST - 5pm EST, US holidays excluded) and to make reasonable efforts to provide
work-arounds to errors reported in the Software.
During the Support Period you may also report any Software problem or error to Synametrics Technologies.
If Synametrics Technologies determines that a reported reproducible material error in the Software
exists and significantly impairs the usability and utility of the Software, Synametrics Technologies
agrees to use reasonable commercial efforts to correct or provide a usable work-around
solution in an upcoming maintenance release or update, which is made available at certain
times at Synametrics Technologies sole discretion.
If Synametrics Technologies, in its discretion, requests written verification of an error or malfunction
discovered by you or requests supporting example files that exhibit the Software problem,
you shall promptly provide such verification or files, by email, telecopy, or overnight
mail, setting forth in reasonable detail the respects in which the Software fails to
perform. You shall use reasonable efforts to cooperate in diagnosis or study of errors.
Synametrics Technologies may include error corrections in maintenance releases, updates, or new major
releases of the Software. Synametrics Technologies is not obligated to fix errors that are immaterial.
Immaterial errors are those that do not significantly impact use of the Software. Whether
or not you have purchased the Support & Maintenance Package, technical support only covers
issues or questions resulting directly out of the operation of the Software and Synametrics Technologies
will not provide you with generic consultation, assistance, or advice under any circumstances.
Updating Software may require the updating of software not covered by this Software License
Agreement before installation. Updates of the operating system and application software not
specifically covered by this Software License Agreement are your responsibility and will
not be provided by Synametrics Technologies under this Software License Agreement. Synametrics Technologies
obligations under this Section 6 are contingent upon your proper use of the Software and your compliance
with the terms and conditions of this Software License Agreement at all times. Synametrics Technologies
shall be under no obligation to provide the above technical support if, in Synametrics Technologies
opinion, the Software has failed due to the following conditions: (i) damage caused by the
relocation of the software to another location or CPU; (ii) alterations, modifications or
attempts to change the Software without Synametrics Technologies written approval; (iii) causes external
to the Software, such as natural disasters, the failure or fluctuation of electrical power,
or computer equipment failure; (iv) your failure to maintain the Software at Synametrics Technologies
specified release level; or (v) use of the Software with other software without Synametrics Technologies
prior written approval. It will be your sole responsibility to: (i) comply with all
Synametrics Technologies-specified operating and troubleshooting procedures and then notify Synametrics Technologies
immediately of Software malfunction and provide Synametrics Technologies with complete information thereof;
(ii) provide for the security of your confidential information; (iii) establish and maintain
backup systems and procedures necessary to reconstruct lost or altered files, data or programs.
