(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.


(g) Transmissions.


(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).
