connection with any Transaction, Contract, or Electronic Contracting
Agreement) to be a "writing" or "in writing"; and any such Document
that includes a Signature ("Signed Documents") shall be deemed for all
purposes (i) to have been "signed" and (ii) to constitute an "original"
when printed from electronic files or records established and
maintained in the normal course of business.
(4) The conduct of the parties under an Electronic Contracting
Agreement, including the use of properly transmitted Signed Documents,

are to be in writing or signed by the party to be bound thereby.
Signed Documents, if introduced as evidence on paper in any judicial,

admissible as between the parties to the same extent and under the same
conditions as other business records originated and maintained in
documentary form. Neither party shall contest the admissibility of
copies of Signed Documents under the business records exception to the

like kind or character on the basis that the Signed Documents were not
originated or maintained in documentary form or an form not
contemplated in the Electronic Contracting Agreement.

Agreement that is determined to be invalid or unenforceable will be
ineffective to the extent of such determination without invalidating
the remaining provisions of the Electronic Contracting Agreement or
