Sprint Security Support Services for Schedule No. 11*

Sprint Security Support Services are designed to minimize the vulnerability of Sprint's voice services customers to certain outbound international and inbound domestic toll free communications fraud originating from or terminating at the customer's enterprise telephone equipment. 1.

Definitions The following definitions apply to all Sprint Security Support Services. 1.

Covered Domestic Toll Free Inbound Services Covered Domestic Toll Free Inbound Services includes all Sprint domestic toll free inbound services (excluding North American Dialing Plan locations in Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean).

2.

Covered Outbound International Services Covered Outbound International Services include all Sprint long distance services from a customer's domestic CPE to international locations including Caribbean locations included in the North American Dialing Plan, excluding Canada and Mexico.

3.

CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) CPE is a single PBX, a single electronic key system or a specific customer location supported by a Centrex system, with or without adjuncts such as voice mail and auto-attendants. CPE must be located in an area where usage recording, including originating number identification, is performed by Sprint within the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

4.

Sprint Notification Sprint Notification is the placement of a telephone call by Sprint to a telephone number currently in service for the customer or any employee/agent of the customer. Communication to the customer or an employee/agent of the customer via voice mail or fax also constitutes Sprint Notification.

5.

Customer Notification Customer Notification is an answered telephone call made by the customer to the Sprint Security Support Service Unit to provide notice of suspected Remote Toll Fraud.

6.

Remote Toll Fraud Remote Toll Fraud is an unauthorized call using (1) Covered Outbound International Services made by remotely accessing Customer’s CPE from another domestic location, breaching the security of that CPE or (2) Covered Domestic Toll Free Inbound Services that access a Customer’s CPE from another domestic location. In either case, calls made by, or in collusion with, students, faculty, persons employed or previously employed by the customer or agents of the customer are not considered Remote Toll Fraud.

7.

Remote Toll Fraud Usage Charges Remote Toll Fraud Usage Charges are Sprint schedule charges for Remote Toll Fraud for which the breach of security occurred at a customer's CPE. Billing credits for Remote Toll Fraud Usage Charges are limited to actual telecommunications service usage.

Definitions (Continued) 8.

Incident An Incident is any previously undetected CPE fraud that is the subject of a Customer Notification or a Sprint Notification.

2.

SprintGUARD Basic SprintGUARD Basic is provided automatically to all Sprint business voice services customers at no charge. SprintGUARD Basic limits the customer's exposure for Covered International Outbound Services and Covered Domestic Toll Free Inbound Services for Remote Toll Fraud Usage Charges and provides for notification of suspected Remote Toll Fraud identified by Sprint or the customer. 1.

Sprint Responsibilities Sprint provides the following services to the customer through the SprintGUARD Basic Service:

2.



Daily account analysis.



Sprint Notification of apparent abnormal account activity.

Customer Responsibilities 1.

Security Requirements During an investigation of an Incident or suspected Incident, Sprint reserves the right to obtain specific information from the customer regarding any password(s) used to remotely access the CPE. Any request for this information will come from a Sprint Security Support Services representative.

2.

Administrative Requirements The customer must cooperate fully with Sprint in all efforts to stop suspected or confirmed Remote Toll Fraud.

3.

Post-Claim Requirements The customer must give Sprint access to the affected CPE within 24 hours of Sprint's request and permit the Sprint Security Support Service Team to investigate the current and/or former configuration of the CPE. The Customer must permit Sprint Security Support Service representatives to enter and inspect any CPE location within 12 hours of the termination of suspected Remote Toll Fraud if requested as part of an investigation of suspected Remote Toll Fraud. The customer must make a Customer Notification to the Sprint Security Support Service Unit to report a suspected Incident, regardless of which local or long distance carrier is involved, within 2 hours of discovering the suspected Incident. In the absence of an applicable Sprint Notification or a Customer Notification, the customer must review its Sprint bill and notify Sprint in writing within 60 days after the date of the bill to report a suspected Incident. Usage charges not identified to or by Sprint within the specified 60 day period do not qualify as Remote Toll Fraud Usage Charges. The customer must establish (e.g., by way of call detail records) that each usage charge identified qualifies as a Remote Toll Fraud usage charge.
