A Reinstatement Fee equal to seventy-five dollars ($75.00) will be assessed for suspended Services and must be collected with the overdue Fees for the account to be reinstated.

7. CONFIDENTIALITY. ATLANTIC.NET and Customer, for itself, its agents, employees and representatives, agrees that it will not divulge any confidential or proprietary information it receives from the other party, except as may be required by law.
8. INSURANCE.

The policy shall be written on a per-occurrence basis with blanket contractual liability coverage, with respect to use of the Space in the Premises and operation of Customer’s business therein, with a combined single-limit coverage of not less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) and aggregate umbrella coverage of not less than an additional One Million Dollars ($1,000,000). Customer shall maintain property insurance (inclusive of coverage for data, media and electronic data processing perils) written on a “Special Form” basis at full replacement cost value. Customer’s policies shall contain provisions providing that such insurance shall be primary insurance insofar as Customer is concerned, with any other insurance maintained by ATLANTIC.NET being excess and noncontributing with the insurance of Customer required hereunder; and the same shall provide coverage for the contractual liability of Customer to indemnify ATLANTIC.NET. Each of Customer’s policies shall name Atlantic.Net, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which leases the Premises from the Owner of the Building, and any additional persons, or entities that ATLANTIC.NET may reasonably designate in writing, as “additional insureds”. All such policies shall provide that Customer’s insurer waives all rights of subrogation against ATLANTIC.NET. Customer shall obtain all such policies with carriers having an A.M. Best rating of A- VIII or better. Customer shall procure and maintain workers’ compensation insurance complying with the law of the state where the Building is located, whether or not said coverage is required by law, and employer’s liability insurance with limits of no less than One Million Dollars ($1,000,000). Each such policy shall provide that it cannot be canceled or modified unless ATLANTIC.NET is given thirty (30) calendar days advance written notice of such cancellation or modification.

Customer and ATLANTIC.NET and their respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, representatives, parent companies, affiliated companies and subsidiary companies (each, as an “Indemnifying Party”) each hereby agree to and shall indemnify, defend, protect and hold the other party and its respective officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents, representatives, parent companies, affiliated companies and subsidiary companies (each, as an “Indemnified Party”) free and harmless from and against all Claims (defined below) for damages (including but not limited to attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses), injury and death arising out of or relating directly or indirectly to the failure or alleged failure by the Indemnifying Party to comply with this Colocation Contract and the License granted hereunder and Customer’s use of the Space, excepting there from Claims arising out of or relating to the intentional misconduct or gross negligence of the Indemnified Party. For purposes of this Colocation Contract, the term “Claims” means any and all claims, causes of action (whether based on tort or contract law principles, law or equity, or otherwise), charges, assessments, fines, and penalties of any kind (including consultant and expert expenses, court costs, and reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs. This indemnification extends to and includes (a) Claims for injury to any persons (including death at any time resulting from that injury), and loss of, injury or damage to, or destruction of real or personal property (including all loss of use resulting from that loss, injury, damage, or destruction of the Space or Premises), but specifically excluding (b) Claims for economic and consequential loss or damage, and resulting, incidental or punitive damages of any kind.

The Indemnifying Party shall promptly assume the defense of any Indemnified Party, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such Indemnitee, and the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the sole cost and expense of the indemnifying party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Indemnified Party shall be entitled, at its expense, to employ counsel separate from counsel for the Indemnifying Party and from any other party in such action, proceeding, or investigation. An Indemnified Party may not agree to a settlement of a Claim without the prior written approval of the Indemnifying Party, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. No Indemnifying Party may agree to a settlement of a Claim against an Indemnified Party unless such settlement includes a full release of the Indemnified Party.

SCHEDULE OF EQUIPMENT
SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
ATLANTIC.NET’s intention is to provide uninterrupted power to the Equipment in the Space; however, events occur from time to time that may interrupt the power delivered to the Equipment in the Space. In the event that Customer experiences an interruption in power delivery to the Equipment in the Space (a “Power Interruption”), excluding scheduled maintenance, ATLANTIC.NET shall, for each impacted power circuit in the Space, grant to Customer a percentage credit during the next succeeding month (a “Power Interrupt Percentage Credit”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Power Interruption is caused by one or more events of Force Majeure or by the Customer exceeding 80% of a circuit breaker’s rating under continuous load, the Customer shall not be entitled to a Power Interrupt Percentage Credit. The Power Interrupt Percentage Credit shall be based on the following schedule:
Per 15 Minutes of downtime: One hour of the Monthly fee allocable to the specific impacted power circuit.
Power Interrupt Percentage Credits are not cumulative from month to month and apply only to the month in which the Power Interruption occurred. Customer shall not receive during any month of the Term hereof a Power Interrupt Percentage Credit, which cumulatively exceed 100% of the monthly Fee allocable to the power circuit(s) affected in the Space.

Network Uptime (only applicable when Atlantic.Net provides Internet Access)
Atlantic.Net guarantees that the network will be available 100% of the time in a given month excluding scheduled maintenance. Atlantic.Net will refund the customer one hour of the monthly Internet Access fee per additional 15 minutes downtime (up to 100% of customer’s monthly Internet Access fee). Network uptime includes functioning of all network infrastructure including router, switches and cabling. Network downtime exists when a particular customer is unable to transmit and receive data and Atlantic.Net records such failure in the Atlantic.Net trouble ticket system.
ATLANTIC.NET’s cross-connects in the Premises are designed for 100% circuit availability. If ATLANTIC.NET’s cross connects degrade outside acceptable BellCore parameters (i.e., in excess of 1 minute) (a “Degrade Interruption”), excluding scheduled maintenance, ATLANTIC.NET shall, for each impacted cross-connect in the Space, grant to Customer a percentage credit during the next succeeding month (a “Degrade Interrupt Percentage Credit”). Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a Degrade Interruption is caused by one or more events of Force Majeure, the Customer shall not be entitled a Degrade Interrupt Percentage Credit. The Degrade Interrupt Percentage Credit shall be based on the following schedule:
Per 15 Minute of downtime: One hour of the Monthly fee allocable to the specific impacted cross-connect.
Degrade Interrupt Percentage Credits are not cumulative from month to month and apply only to the month in which the Degrade Interruption occurred. Customer shall not receive during any month of the Term hereof a Degrade Interrupt Percentage Credit, which cumulatively exceed 100% of the monthly Fee allocable to the cross-connects affected in the Space.
REFUNDS OR CREDITS
In order to qualify for a refund or credit pursuant to this Service Level Agreement, Customer must (a) contact ATLANTIC.NET’s Network Operations Center toll free number [(800) 540-4686] or email [ email@example.com] within one (1) business day of the occurrence of the event for which the refund or credit is being requested and open a “trouble ticket”, and (b) within ten (10) calendar days of the occurrence of the event deliver to ATLANTIC.NET (at ATLANTIC.NET’s notice address in the Colocation Contract) written notice describing with precision the dates and time of the event, the length of the event (in minutes and hours), the type of event, which rack, cage, or cabinet in the Space was affected by the event, and what effect the event had on Customer’s ability to operate the Equipment during the event.

ATLANTIC.NET agrees to and shall make a determination of whether Customer is entitled to a refund or credit within thirty (30) calendar days from the occurrence of the event. Until such determination, Customer shall continue to pay on a timely basis all monthly Fees required by the Colocation Contract without offset, credit or deduction. The amount of any refund or credit to which Customer is entitled for an impacted power circuit, Internet access, or cross-connect shall not exceed one hundred percent (100%) of the monthly Fee allocable to the specific impacted power circuit, Internet access, or cross-connect. Under no circumstance will Customer be entitled to a refund or credit if the event complained of was caused by an event of Force Majeure, scheduled maintenance, or Customer’s actions.
