An “Error” is defined as a reproducible failure of the Software to perform in substantial conformity to the specifications in the Documentation, whose origin can be isolated to a single cause. Errors are classified as follows:
Priority 1 Error (Production Down).
Definition. A Priority 1 Error is any Error that renders you unable to use the Software on more than 50% end points, where it is installed, resulting in a critical impact to your business operations.
Key Deliverables. In response to a Priority 1 Error, Openware will endeavour to as quickly as is feasibly possible, to provide an appropriate resource and deliver a resolution. Unless otherwise agreed, Openware will service Priority 1 Errors on a continual effort basis until the Error is resolved. Resolution of Priority 1 Errors may include temporary solutions, enabling your business to operate until a more comprehensive solution is provided.
Priority 2 Error (Significant Business Impact).
Definition. A Priority 2 Error is any Error that renders the Software severely limited in its functionality, as specified in the Documentation, but still usable. Components of a Priority 2 Error include: (1) a critical component of the Software (e.g. security IE browsing) is not responding or producing error messages; (2) the issue is critical to Your business operations.
Key Deliverables. Priority 2 Errors will be serviced as critical during Normal Business Hours until the Error is resolved.
Priority 3 Error (Limited Business Impact).
Definition. A Priority 3 Error is any Error that results in the Software being usable with some non-critical features of the Software being unavailable. Components of a Priority 3 Error include: (1) Issues that affect Your ability to meet upcoming deadlines; (2) Software components returning errors messages or not responding; (3) degraded Software performance is negatively impacting Your business operations.

Components of a Priority 4 Error include: (1) general questions such as “how-to” or syntax questions; (2) issues with little or no impact on Your business operations;
Key Results. Priority 4 Errors will be serviced as general issues during Normal Business Hours until the Error is resolved.

Openware shall use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to Your initial Error reports with off-site telephone consultation, assistance and advice. Openware will respond to your initial Error report either with; (1) a potential problem resolution, or (2) a request for more information that would permit Openware to determine the next steps towards potential problem resolution. If it is determined, at Openware’s sole discretion, that the Error reported requires escalation or requires extensive time to research the reported Error, Openware will advise you of the potential time necessary to provide a potential workaround or a resolution.

Any Openware Technology and any performance information relating to the Software will be deemed Confidential Information of Openware without any marking or further designation. Except as expressly authorized herein, the Receiving Party will (1) hold in confidence and not disclose any Confidential Information to third parties and (2) not use Confidential Information for any purpose other than fulfilling its obligations and exercising its rights under this Agreement. The Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to its employees, agents, contractors and other representatives having a legitimate need to know, provided that they are bound to confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Disclosing Party than this Section 12 and that the Receiving Party remains responsible for compliance by them with the terms of this Section 12. The Receiving Party's confidentiality obligations will not apply to information which the Receiving Party can document: (i) was rightfully in its possession or known to it prior to receipt of the Confidential Information; (ii) is or has become public knowledge through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) is rightfully obtained by the Receiving Party from a third party without breach of any confidentiality obligation; or (iv) is independently developed by employees of the Receiving Party who had no access to such information. The Receiving Party may also disclose Confidential Information if so required pursuant to a regulation, law or court order (but only to the minimum extent required to comply with such regulation or order and with advance notice to the Disclosing Party). The Receiving Party acknowledges that disclosure of Confidential Information would cause substantial harm for which damages alone would not be a sufficient remedy, and therefore that upon any such disclosure by the Receiving Party the Disclosing Party will be entitled to appropriate equitable relief in addition to whatever other remedies it might have at law.
