2.14 Cost of Electronic Board.


(a) Cost of Equipment. Each party shall provide and be responsible for its own costs for the

data processing equipment it uses to send and receive electronic communications.


(b) Cost of EBB Services. Each party shall provide and be responsible for its own costs for

accessing the Internet.


(c) Cost of Unauthorized Transmission. Use of the receiving party's designated site is limited

to transactions permitted under this Tariff. No party may use another party's designated site for any

other purpose unless otherwise expressly authorized under separate written agreement between the

parties, including Transporter. If any party transmits to another party's designated site data not

qualifying under this Tariff, the transmitting party will be liable to reimburse the receiving party for

any direct costs incurred as a result of receiving any such unauthorized transmission.


2.15 Limitations on Access to Data. No party may obtain on its own initiative or otherwise any data

from or relating to the other party except as specifically identified in this Section. In the event any

party receives a transmission that the receiving party knows or should know is not directed to or

intended for the receiving party, the receiving party shall immediately notify the transmitting party of

such transmission and take such reasonable action as the transmitting party directs. In no event shall

the receiving party utilize such information to the detriment of the transmitting party or any other

party, or otherwise convey the substance of such transmission to any third party.


2.16 Security Breaches. Any Shipper or other party using the EBB agrees to notify Transporter promptly

if there is any indication that a security breach may have occurred with regard to any electronic data

interchange facilities or systems and to make any changes in passwords or other changes necessary to

ensure the continued integrity of the EBB system. A security breach shall include, but not be limited

to (i) loss of confidentiality of the other party's account name or account number for its designated

site; (ii) termination of employment of any employee authorized to effect EBB communications; and (iii)

loss of authority to effect EBB communications by any previously authorized employee. Transporter

shall, to the extent possible, accommodate requests by Shippers to limit the access of designated

employees or representatives of Shipper to designated portions of the EBB.


2.17 Responsibility for System Failure. Each EBB user shall bear the consequences of any failure in its

own EBB-related equipment or system, and no such failure shall in any way affect the requirements under

Transporter's Tariff or Service Agreements for communications, or the impact under the Tariff or Service

Agreements of any failure by either party to make or receive such communications. The standards of

liability applicable to the operation of the EBB equipment within Transporter's ownership and control

shall be the same standards as are applicable to Transporter's other equipment and operations.
