Document shall be deemed for all purposes (a) to have been

"signed" (Signed Documents) and (b) to constitute an "original"

maintained in the normal course of business. All parties agree

not to contest the validity or enforceability of such electronic

signatures under the provision of any applicable law relating to

party to be bound thereby, provided that the signature has been

made in accordance with the terms of this Tariff. Further,

Signed Documents, if introduced as evidence on paper in any

judicial, arbitration, mediation or administrative proceeding,

will be admissible as between the parties to the same extent and

under the same conditions as other business records originated

and maintained in paper documentary forms.
