As used in this Agreement,
"SERVICES" means the services ordered by Customer on one or more Service Orders.

"Service Order" means the documents signed by the parties and incorporated
herein by reference, setting forth the specific services to be provided, the
term of service, the prices and payment schedule, and any other provisions upon
which the parties mutually agree. All Service Orders will be subject to the
terms and conditions of this Agreement.

"ISX Services" means the provision of AboveNet Co-location Space and/or

"AboveNet Co-location Space" means the physical area within a co-location
facility owned or controlled by MFN as identified on an applicable Service

"AboveNet Network" means the network of routers, switches and communication
channels owned or controlled by MFN.

Additional terms are defined below.


SERVICE CHARGES. Customer agrees to pay the monthly charges for Services and
         any set up and other charges indicated on the Service Order(s) or
         otherwise due hereunder (collectively, "Service Charges"). Service
         Charges do not include any applicable taxes, which may be billed to
         Customer in addition to the Service Charges. If a Service Order
         provides for deferred payment of set-up costs over time, Customer
         acknowledges that it is responsible for paying in full the MSA 01 06-12
         2 remaining balance of such set-up costs in the event of any early
         termination of the Service Order or this Agreement for any reason

"BURST" BANDWIDTH. Billing for connectivity beyond the committed level ("burst"
         bandwidth) will follow the "95th percentile" rule: Usage samples will
         be collected and sorted from highest to lowest and the top 5%
         discarded. The next highest sample (the 95th percentile number) will
         then be used as the basis in computing the charge for the month for
         bandwidth beyond the committed level.

BILLING AND PAYMENT TERMS. Beginning on the date of commencement of the
         Services, as set forth in the Service Order or otherwise documented,
         Customer will be billed monthly in advance for the contracted Services;
         except for specified one-time additional Services ordered by Customer
         and for "burst" bandwidth, which will be billed after the end of the
         month. All Service Charges and other fees will be due in U.S. dollars
         within thirty (30) days of the date of invoice. Late undisputed
         payments will accrue interest at a rate of one and one-half percent
         (1 1/2%) per month or the highest rate allowed by applicable law,
         whichever is lower. As used herein, undisputed amounts shall refer to
         all amounts due



          and owning hereunder, excusive of any charges or fees which Customer
          in good faith disputes as the result of a disagreement as to usage or
          performance. If Customer fails to make payments when due anti does not
          cure such failure pursuant to the terms hereof, MFN may require
          payment in advance of further Services.

SERVICES. The Services will be provided to Customer on the terms set forth on
the Service Order(s), subject to the provisions of this Agreement. Requests for
additional Services may be made to MFN's sales staff or by e-mail to and will be effective when accepted by MFN. Such
additional Services shall result in an increase in the Service Charges as set
forth in the Service Order. For additional services outside the scope of this
Agreement (including any Service Order), MFN must receive 72 hours advance
notice before commencing such services, or may bill Customer a $500 rush
services charge.


EQUIPMENT SALES. If any Service Order includes the sale of equipment to Customer
         (including hardware, software, or other equipment), Customer agrees to
         pay the prices specified in the Service Order plus all applicable
         taxes, import and custom duties, and similar charges, upon the terms
         set forth herein. All risk of loss or damage to such equipment passes
         to Customer upon installation to Customer's data center space or such
         other point designated in the Service Order. Title passes to Customer
         when all outstanding balances due for such equipment are paid in full.
         In the event Customer defaults on its payment obligations hereunder,
         MFN may enter the premises wherein the equipment may be found and take
         possession and remove such equipment following notice as defined in
         Section 9.1.

MFN-SUPPLIED EQUIPMENT. Customer shall have no right or interest in any
         MFN-supplied equipment other than the right to use such equipment
         during the specified term or until any earlier termination of this
         Agreement Customer shall be liable to MFN for any damage to such
         equipment to the extent caused by Customer or Customer's
         representatives, agents or employees.

WARRANTY. MFN represents and warrants that (i) it has the power and authority to
enter into and perform its obligations under this Agreement and (ii) it will
provide the Services at a professional level of quality conforming to generally
accepted industry standards and in compliance with all applicable laws and

the flow of data to or from the AboveNet Network and other portions of the
Internet. Such flow depends in



large part on the performance of Internet services provided or controlled by
third parties. At times, actions or inactions caused by these third parties can
produce situations in which Customer connections to the Internet (or portions
thereof) may be impaired or disrupted. It cannot be guaranteed that such
situations will not occur and, accordingly, MFN disclaims any and all liability
resulting from or related to such events. In the event that Customer's use of
the Service or interaction with the Internet or such third parties is causing
harm to or threatens to cause harm to the AboveNet Network or its operations,
MFN shall have the right to suspend the Service. MFN shall restore Service at
such time as it reasonably deems that there is no further harm or threat of harm
to the AboveNet Network or its operations.


EXCLUSIONS. In no event will either party be liable for any incidental,
         punitive, indirect or consequential damages (including without
         limitation any lost revenue or lost profits) or for any loss of
         technology, loss of data, or interruption or loss of use of Service
         (except as set forth in any applicable Service Level Agreement) or any
         other similar claims by a party or related to Customer's or MFN's
         business, even if MFN or Customer, as applicable, is advised of the
         possibility of such damages.

MAXIMUM LIABILITY. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement,
         either party's maximum aggregate liability to the other related to or
         in connection with this Agreement whether under theory of contract,
         tort (including negligence), strict liability or otherwise will be
         limited to the total amount due to MFN from Customer hereunder for the
         first twelve (12) month period of the Agreement.


COVERED CLAIMS. Each party (the "Indemnifying Party" for purposes of this
         Section) will indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other party (the
         "Indemnified Party"), its directors, officers, employees, and
         affiliates (collectively, the "Indemnified Entities") from and against
         any and all claims, actions or demands brought against any of the
         Indemnified Entities alleging: (a) infringement or misappropriation of
         any intellectual property rights by the Indemnifying Party except to
         the extent caused by the Indemnified Party; (b) defamation, libel,
         slander, obscenity, pornography, or violation of the rights of privacy
         or publicity, or spamming or any other tortious or illegal conduct; (c)
         any property loss suffered by any other customer of MFN resulting from
         acts or omissions by the Indemnifying Party or its representative(s) or
         designees; (d) any personal injury suffered by any representative,
         employee or agent of the Indemnified Party arising out of such
         individual's activities related to the Services except to the extent
         caused by the Indemnified Party's negligence or willful misconduct.

NOTICE PROCEDURE. The Indemnified Party will provide the Indemnifying Party
         with prompt written notice of each Covered Claim of which the
         Indemnified Party becomes aware. At the Indemnified Party's sole
         option, it may elect to participate in the defense and settlement of
         any Covered Claim, provided that such participation shall not relieve
         the Indemnifying Party of any of its obligations under this Section.
         The Indemnifying Party shall have the right to control the defense of
         any Covered Claim.

         the Disclosing Party and shall remain the sole and exclusive property
         of the Disclosing Party (the party furnishing the Confidential
         Information referred to as the "Disclosing Party" and the other Party

         other inside plant facilities. Customer will pay all fees, recurring
         and non-recurring, assessed by any building owner, landlord or other
         third party for the necessary approval and permission to access or
         build into a Customer Premises. In the event that Customer has failed
         to obtain such approvals at least 5 days prior to the Estimated
         Activation Date for the Service Order, MFN shall have the right to
         begin billing Customer for Services on the later to occur of the
         Estimated Activation Date or the date on which MFN has installed fiber
         to point of entry or the last serving manhole outside the Customer
         Premises. Customer shall provide MFN with access to MFN's equipment in
         the Customer Premises on 2 hours notice.

PROVISION OF SPACE. Customer shall furnish MFN space within the Customer
         Premises necessary to operate MFN's equipment in the Customer Premises.
         Customer Premises shall meet or exceed the specifications set forth
         below. Customer shall furnish MFN access to the Customer Premises and
         MFN's equipment at all times as MFN deems necessary to operate and
         service the AboveNet equipment.

ABOVENET EQUIPMENT. Customer shall not and shall not permit its employees,
         agents, contractors or other third parties to disconnect, interfere
         with, operate, modify or attempt to service MFN's equipment on the
         Customer Premises. MFN or its agents will perform all maintenance and
         repairs to its Equipment and the AboveNet Network at no additional
         charge to Customer, unless such maintenance or repair was necessary as
         a result of Customer's actions. Customer shall be liable for all damage
         to the AboveNet Network or equipment resulting from its negligence or
         intentional misconduct, or violation of this Section.

AUTHORIZATIONS. MFN will use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain, maintain
         or renew all Authorizations throughout the Term. If any modification or
         termination of or failure to obtain an Authorization prevents or
         materially interferes with MFN's control, possession and/or use of the
         AboveNet Network or its ability to provide the Services then MFN shall
         have the right, to the extent such event affects the provision of the
         Services, to terminate this Agreement with respect to the affected
         Services without further obligation or liability to Customer. The
         foregoing is MFN's sole and exclusive liability and Customer's sole and
         exclusive remedy with respect to termination as a result of the loss of
         an Authorization. "Authorization(s)" means all material and applicable
         authorizations, leases, licenses, easements, rights of way, franchises,
         approvals, permits, orders,



         consents, and all other rights required for MFN to operate and

                              SLA for ISX Services
                           (without Managed Services)

This Service Level Agreement ("SLA") is provided to Customer in connection with
ISX Services. MFN will use commercially reasonable efforts to minimize Excess
Packet Loss and Latency and to avoid Downtime, as more fully set out below.

Packet Loss and Latency. MFN does not proactively monitor the packet loss or
transmission latency of specific customers. MFN does, however, proactively
monitor the aggregate packet loss and transmission latency within its LAN and
WAN. After discovering or being notified by Customer of packet loss in excess of
one percent (1%) ("Excess PacketLoss") or transmission latency ("Latency") based
on MFN's measurements in excess of one of the following:

120 milliseconds round-trip time between any two routers within the continental
United States portion of the AboveNet Network, 80 milliseconds round trip
between any two routers on the European portion of the AboveNet Network, 180
milliseconds round trip between any two routers within either the New York to
London or Washington to London portion of the AboveNet Network, or 150
milliseconds round trip between any two routers within either the Seattle to
Tokyo or San Jose to Tokyo portion of the AboveNet Network, MFN will use
commercially reasonable efforts to determine the source of such Excess Packet
Loss or Latency and to correct such problem to the extent that the source of the
problem is on the AboveNet Network.

REMEDY FOR FAILURE. If two (2) hours after being notified of any Excess Packet
Loss or Latency on the AboveNet Network, MFN fails to remedy such Excess Packet
Loss or Latency, MFN will credit Customer's account the pro-rata bandwidth fees
for such continuous Excess Packet Loss or Latency that follows the initial two
(2) continuous hours, provided that all such credits will not exceed an
aggregate maximum credit of bandwidth fees otherwise due from Customer for one
(1) calendar month for failures in any one (1) calendar month.

from the AboveNet Network to the Internet without Downtime. "Downtime" shall be
defined as Customer experiencing sustained packet loss in excess of fitly
percent (50%) based on MFN's measurements. If Customer experiences Downtime,
then MFN will credit a Customer's account the pro-rata bandwidth fees for such
Downtime, provided that all such credits will not exceed an aggregate maximum
credit of bandwidth fees otherwise due from Customer for one (1) calendar month
for failures in any one (1) calendar month.

POWER AVAILABILITY. If Customer has purchased AboveNet Co-location Space, MFN
guarantees 100% power availability to Customer's Co-location Space. In the event
of an unscheduled power outage, MFN will credit Customer's account the prorata
fees for Co - Location Space associated with the unscheduled power outage,
provided that all such credits will not exceed an aggregate maximum credit of
Co-Location Space fees otherwise due from Customer for one (1) calendar month
for failures in any one (1) calendar month.



CUSTOMER REQUEST CREDIT. Customer must notify MFN within five (5) business days
from the time Customer becomes eligible to receive a credit under this Section 1
to receive such credit. Failure to comply with this requirement will forfeit
Customer's right to receive a credit.

LIMITATION ON REMEDIES. If Customer is entitled to multiple credits under this
Section 1, such credits shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for
one (i) calendar month in any one (1) calendar month in any event. MFN will not
apply a credit under Section 2 for any Excess Packet Loss or Latency for which
Customer received a credit under Section 3. Sections 2, 3 and 4 above state
Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by MFN to provide Services
or adequate Service levels, including but not limited to any outages or AboveNet
Network congestion. MFN's suspension or modification of Service in accordance
with the terms of this Agreement shall not be deemed to be a failure of MFN to
provide adequate Service levels under this Agreement. In no event shall Customer
be entitled to any credit on its Services Fees to the extent that the latency or
Downtime is caused by Customer attempting to exceed the maximum bandwidth of
Customer's connection to the AboveNet Network or otherwise violating the terms
of this Agreement.



                            SLA for Managed Services

MANAGED SERVICES STANDARDS. Under this Service Level Agreement (SLA), MFN will
be responsible for 100% uptime of Customer's site, as specified below.

BASIC 100% UPTIME STANDARD: MFN will guarantee uptime of Customer's site under a
Basic 100% Uptime Standard so long as Customer agrees to:

         o    undergo a SiteSmith SiteAudit of MFN-managed elements (to
              determine or verify Customer's equipment, system architecture,
              network architecture, and related configuration matters, and to
              evaluate any site operation, security, or related issues) and
              implement any changes identified from the SiteAudit that are
              required for uptime performance; and o implement SiteSmith
              Component SiteMonitoring to monitor the Customer site or managed
              elements. In addition, all Customer-owned equipment being managed
              by MFN must be covered under vendor maintenance agreements, which
              will cover repair or replacement of such equipment.

ACCELERATED 100% UPTIME STANDARD: MFN will provide accelerated service credit
for any downtime, if Customer takes the following additional steps:

         o    implement the SiteSmith Operations Platform (use only devices
              that are listed on the published platform scope):

         o    remove their users and external agents from accounts that grant
              administrative or "root" access to devices within the equipment
              being managed by MFN; and

         o    for systems requiring a "firewall," engage MFN to manage the
              firewall solution in a "high availability' configuration.

CREDITS FOR DOWNTIME: Despite the efforts of MFN and Customer, functionality of
the Customer site may decrease from time to time, and may become partially or
completely unavailable. In such event, MFN will work to restore the Customer
site to its normal operating functionality as rapidly as possible. If
functionality of the Customer site is impaired to any degree that makes the
overall site materially unavailable, the duration of such unavailability shall
be considered "downtime." Customer will accrue one minute of credit for each
minute of downtime beyond any applicable resolution period (see below). If
downtime reoccurs within 60 minutes from the end of a previous outage from the
same cause, then MFN will apply "chronic outage" credits at a multiplier of 1.5

Center (ICCC), MFN provides phone support, email ticketing support, Remedy(TM)
ticketing support, "first level" system support, and general customer
assistance. Customer must designate a single point of contact for response. MFN
will respond to alerts as follows, and Customer will accrue



one hour of credit for each incident where MFN fails to respond to Customer
within the applicable standard.

Phone Response                   ICCC personnel will respond to voice mail with a phone   within 10 minutes of receipt
                                 call to designated Customer point of contact
Email Response                   ICCC personnel will respond to email with an email to    within 10 minutes of receipt
                                 designated Customer point of contact
Ticket Response                  MFN will begin resolution of customer requested,         within 12 hours of receipt
                                 Non-emergency changes submitted through the ICCC

                                 SiteSmith SiteMonitoring agents, and other emergency

APPLICATION OF SERVICE CREDITS: Service credits will be issued on Customer's
next invoice (or by check if credit occurs in the final month of service).
Credits will be calculated according to the following schedule

<S>                                 <C>                                             <C>

                                    minute beyond 30 hours, up to one month

Service credit accrual is reset to zero at the beginning of each calendar month.
MFN will automatically provide credit for downtime based on its own records and
data. If Customer believes it is entitled to additional credits, Customer must
notify MFN's Accounting Department within two weeks from the date of the
invoice. Service credits may not be applied to charges for services other than
the monthly site operations fee, and are Customer's sole remedy regarding the
Uptime Standards and Customer Service Performance Standards.

RESOLUTION ALLOWANCES: The following table lists the time periods allowed for
resolution of specific problems:

<S>                                              <C>

              Thursday and every second Saturday of the month, between 4am and
              7am local time, or as otherwise arranged with Customer) and
              emergency maintenance (such as emergency patches from an
              equipment vendor).

         o    Networks, hardware, or software not under the direct control of
              MFN or Customer.

         o    Modifications to hardware or site configuration, facility
              changes, or migrations not authorized by MFN.

         o    Unavailability of Customer site due to Customer application
              programming, Customer modifications to OS, Customer content,
              development, staging, and/or testing period(s) or acts or
              omissions of Customer.

         o    Attacks (i.e. hacks, denial of service attacks, malicious
              introduction of viruses and disabling devices) by third parties,
              and other acts not caused by MFN.

         o    Outages due to Customer's failure to provide spare equipment (per
              the SiteAudit or other agreement).

         o    Events of "force majeure," including acts of war, acts of God,
              earthquake, flood, embargo, riot, sabotage, labor dispute,
              governmental act or failure of the Internet (not resulting
              from acts of MFN).

Customer is connected to the AboveNet Network and experiences either (1) packet
loss in excess of one percent (1%) ("Excess Packet Loss") or (2) transmission
latency on the AboveNet Network, based on MFN's measurements, in excess of one
of the following: 120 ms round-trip between any two routers within the
continental U.S., 80 ms round trip between any two routers within Europe, 180 ms
round trip between London and either New York or Washington, or 150 milliseconds
round trip between Tokyo and either San Jose or Seattle ("Latency"), Customer
shall notify MFN of the problem, and if MFN fails to resolve the problem within
two (2) hours after being notified, MSN will credit Customer's account the
pro-rata bandwidth fees for any Excess Packet Loss or Latency that follows the
initial two (2) continuous hours, provided that all such credits will not exceed
an aggregate of the bandwidth fees otherwise due for one (1) calendar month for
failures in any one (1) calendar month. Note that if the Packet Loss or Latency
results in downtime of Customer's site, Customer may claim a service credit
under Section 1. If credit for bandwidth is included in the service credit,
Customer may not claim a separate credit under this section.

SiteBackUp and experiences either excessive delays (as specified later in this
sentence) in the commencement of a restore, or an unsuccessful restore, then MFN
will credit Customer 10% of the monthly SiteBackUp fee for each hour beyond 3
hours (beyond 7 hours in the case of off-site media) from the time the restore
is requested to the ICCC until commencement of the restore, up to 50% of the
total fee for any calendar month.
