  1. Definitions


    ‘Error’ means a failure of the Software to conform to the specifications set forth in the documentation resulting in the inability to use, or material restriction in the use of, the Software.

    ‘Update’ means either a software modification or addition that, when made or added to the Software, corrects an Error, or a procedure or routine that, when observed in the regular operation of the Software, eliminates the practical adverse effect of an Error on the Licensee.

    ‘Upgrade’ means a revision of the Software released by Hyfinity to the Licensee during the Software Support term, to add new and different functions or to increase the capacity of the Software. Upgrade does not include the release of a new product or added features for which there may be a separate charge.


  2. Grant of the Software License Entitles the Licensee to:

    1. receive one copy of the Software for Use on the System, at the specified Location, together with the necessary documentation to install and Use the same;
    2. load, install and Use the Software either (as appropriate to the System and as Specified in the Schedule) (i) on one Central Processing Unit (“CPU”) of the System if the System is single-user or the Software for single use and at the Location specified in the Schedule (a separate license fee being required for each CPU upon which the Licensee wishes to use the Software), or, (ii) if the System is multi-user or networked, by the number of concurrent users specified in the Schedule;
    3. Use the Software in accordance with the provisions of Clause 4 of this Agreement;
    4. receive Hyfinity’s bulletin reports of errors and “patches” and receive such new updates of the Software incorporating the same;

  3. Support Provided under this Agreement


    Support is provided only where a support agreement is included at the time of purchase of the Software, or a support agreement is purchased separately.

    Updates

    Hyfinity will make all reasonable efforts to provide an Update designed to solve or by-pass a reported Error. If such Error has been corrected in a Software Maintenance Release, the Licensee must install and implement the applicable Software Maintenance Release otherwise the Update may be provided in the form of a temporary fix, procedure or routine, to be used until a Software Maintenance release containing the permanent Update is available. The Licensee shall reasonably determine the priority levels of Errors, pursuant to the following protocols:

    Severity 1 Errors:

    Hyfinity promptly initiates the following procedures:

    (1) assigns specialists to correct the Severity 1 Error on an expedited basis;
    (2) provides ongoing communication on the status of an Update; and
    (3) begins to provide a temporary workaround or fix.

    A Severity One Production Error means the (i) production system is severely impacted or completely shut down, or (ii) system operations or mission critical applications are down. A Severity One Development Error means (iii) an application is in final testing, facing a critical time frame of going into Production Use or (iv) entire development efforts are blocked.

    Severity 2 Errors:

    Hyfinity assigns a Hyfinity specialist to begin an Update, and provides additional, escalated procedures as reasonably determined necessary by Hyfinity Support Services staff. Hyfinity exercises its reasonable efforts to provide a workaround or include a fix for the Severity 2 Errors in the next Software Maintenance Release. A Severity 2 Production Error means (i) the production system is functioning with limited capabilities, or (ii) is unstable with periodic interruptions, or (iii) mission critical applications, while not being affected, have experienced system interruptions. A Severity 2 Development Error means (iv) there is a time sensitive question impacting performance or deliverables, or (v) a major subsystem under development is blocked.

    Severity 3 Errors:

    Hyfinity may include an Update in the next Maintenance Release. A Severity 3 Production Error means there (i) are errors in fully operational production systems, (ii) is a need to clarify procedures or information in documentation, or (iii) is a request for a product enhancement. A Severity 3 development Error means (iv) there are errors in system development that may impact performance deliverables, (v) a need to clarify procedures or information in documentation, or (vi) a request for product enhancement.

    Maintenance Releases and Upgrades

    During the Maintenance Support Service Term, Hyfinity shall make the Maintenance Releases available to the Licensee if, as and when Hyfinity makes any such Maintenance Release generally available to its customers.
