GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (Continued)
(e) Signatures. Transporter shall adopt as its signature an electronic identification,
and Transporter shall furnish to Subscriber one or more unique electronic identifications (User
Identification and Password), consisting of symbol(s) or code(s), which are to be electronically
affixed to or placed in each Document transmitted by such party ("Signatures"). The employee(s) or
officer(s) designated by Subscriber in Appendix A of the Electronic Contracting Agreement shall
perform the contracting function for Subscriber and thereby legally bind Subscriber to any Contract
with Transporter by use of that person's assigned User Identification and Password. By entering into
the Electronic Contracting Agreement, Subscriber represents and warrants that (i) the employee(s)
or officer(s) identified in Appendix A thereof have been duly and legally authorized to enter into
and execute Contracts electronically on behalf of Subscriber, and (ii) all other persons designated
by Subscriber to receive a User Identification and Password have been duly authorized to send and
receive Documents other than Contracts. The Signature of a party affixed to or contained in any
transmitted Document shall be irrebuttable proof that such party originated such Document. Neither
party shall disclose to any authorized person the Signatures of the other party.
(f) Security Procedures. Each party shall be responsible for ensuring that all
electronic executions with Signatures and all transmissions of Documents are authorized, and for
protecting its business records and data from improper access. Parties shall be responsible for
securing physical access to each of its computers utilizing Navigator software and for keeping
confidential its User Identification(s) and Password(s). Transporter reserves the right to
invalidate any User Identification or Password if it suspects a security breach.
(1) Proper Receipt. Documents shall not be deemed to have been properly received,
and no Document shall give rise to any obligation, until it has been received as determined
in accordance with Section 2.15 of the General Terms and Conditions.
(2) Acknowledgment. Upon proper receipt of any Document, the receiving party
shall promptly and properly transmit electronically a functional acknowledgement of receipt,
unless otherwise specified in the Transaction List. A functional acknowledgement shall
constitute conclusive evidence a Document has been properly received.
(3) Acceptance. If acceptance of a Document is required by the Transaction
List, the proper receipt of any such Document shall not give rise to any obligation unless
and until the party initially transmitting such Document has properly received in return
an Acceptance Document (as specified in the Transaction List).
