ATLANTIC.NET and Customer acknowledge and agree that upon execution of the Colocation Service Order Form, they shall be legally bound by the Agreement. Capitalized terms not defined in these Terms and Conditions shall have the same meaning as in the Colocation Service Order Form.
(a) Grant of License. Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, ATLANTIC.NET hereby grants to Customer the right and non-exclusive license (“License”) to install and operate the Equipment in the specific space or spaces (“Space”) located in the premises (“Premises”) in the Building, as specified by ATLANTIC.NET during the Term of this Agreement and solely to use the Space for the Permitted Uses set forth below and for no other purposes. Notwithstanding the foregoing, ATLANTIC.NET reserves the right to relocate, change or otherwise substitute replacement space in the Premises for the Space at any time during the Term hereof, provided that the replacement space is substantially similar in size and configuration to the original Space.
(b) Term. This Agreement and the License shall commence on the Effective Date set forth in the Colocation Service Order Form and shall each automatically renew for successive terms equal to the initial term unless cancelled by either party in writing at least thirty days before the expiration of the current term (the “Term”). Provided, however, the Term shall terminate prior to the scheduled date of termination if subject to Sections 11, 12 and/or 13 below.
(c) Permitted Uses. Customer has the right to use the Space solely for the purpose of (i) installation of the Equipment in the Space, (ii) maintaining the Equipment, (iii) operating the Equipment, and (iv) removing the Equipment (the “Permitted Uses”).

Customer shall not use or allow or permit the use of the Space for any use or purpose other than a Permitted Use.
(d) Not a Grant of an Interest in Real Property.

Except with respect to ATLANTIC.NET’s security interest, the parties agree that the Uniform Commercial Code shall not apply to the Agreement.
(a) Payment of Fees. On or before the first (1st) day of each and every month during the Term hereof (each, a “Due Date”), Customer agrees to and shall pay the Fees to ATLANTIC.NET, in advance, for the Services to be rendered by ATLANTIC.NET to Customer during said upcoming month, without offset, deduction or credit of any kind and in good and drawable funds. If Customer for any reason fails to pay the Fees to ATLANTIC.NET by the Due Date of any month during the Term hereof, Customer will be assessed an administrative charge in the amount which is equal to five (5%) of the overdue Fees (“Administrative Charge”); in addition ATLANTIC.NET may charge interest on all due but unpaid Fees at the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum non-usurious rate under applicable law (“Default Interest”) until paid in full. Customer agrees to and shall pay to ATLANTIC.NET for all costs of collection of the Fees, Default Interest and Late Charges plus ATLANTIC.NET’s attorneys’ fees, costs, expenses and court costs and fees paid or incurred in connection therewith.

SCHEDULE OF EQUIPMENT
A list of Equipment Customer plans to install and operate at the Premises shall be provided to ATLANTIC.NET by the Customer.
SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
ATLANTIC.NET agrees to and shall provide the Services to the Equipment in the Space in accordance with this Service Level Agreement. Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the same meaning as in the Colocation Service Order Form and the 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. Where possible, ATLANTIC.NET will provide Customer with directed remote hands-services (without charge) to power up affected Equipment on a best effort basis.
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 protected]] 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 Agreement) 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. Upon opening of the “trouble ticket” ATLANTIC.NET will commence to investigate the facts which led to the event, and upon receipt of Customer’s written notice describing the event ATLANTIC.NET and Customer shall make a joint examination of ATLANTIC.NET’s facility monitoring system records for the impacted cage, rack or cabinet in the Space. 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 Agreement 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.
Customer agrees to and shall abide by and honor all rules, regulations, policies and procedures with regard to the use of the Space, the Premises and the Building from time to time published by ATLANTIC.NET (whether written or published on ATLANTIC.NET’s website). By signing the Colocation Service Order Form the Customer agrees to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Customer also acknowledges that it has reviewed Atlantic.Net’s Customer Policies & Procedures. Atlantic.Net, Inc. will confirm delivery date after the order has been validated and approved. Installation charges are an estimate only. Final charges are subject to completion of installation. Atlantic.Net, Inc. cannot guarantee additional power for reconfiguration or upgrades of Customer Equipment, except as specified in this Agreement.
Customer authorizes Atlantic.Net, Inc. to release Customer’s name to other Atlantic.Net potential and current customers.
Customer agrees and acknowledges that it is solely responsible for ordering circuits directly from the carrier if Customer is not purchasing bandwidth from Atlantic.Net. Customer shall coordinate with the carrier the delivery and provisioning of circuits to Atlantic.Net, Inc. facilities. Atlantic.Net, Inc. may be able to assist only if circuit number(s) are provided. Customer understands that Atlantic.Net, Inc. is not responsible for commitments made by carriers.
