  18. Exhibit B: Program Levels
  19. The Program is divided into three levels: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

    Silver

    Silver level members have no recurring membership fee. Members at this level are only limited to access documentation provided by KMBS via the bEST membership site. Any additional materials provided in response to support or other means are also covered by this Agreement. Support for the Materials provided at this level can be obtained by contacting KMBS Support via telephone, and will incur a one-time fee per incident.

    Gold

    Gold level members must pay an annual fee for access to the Materials and programs offered at this level. Payment will be expected on the yearly anniversary of acceptance of the Program. Failure to pay this yearly fee may result in termination of membership within the Program.

    Members at this level are limited to access documentation and programs provided by KMBS via the bEST membership site for the purposes of developing a web-based application that will be connected to/from a MFP using the optional web browser. Any additional materials provided in response to support or other means are also covered by this Agreement. Support for the Materials provided at this level can be obtained by contacting KMBS Support via email.

    Included in the annual membership fee are two support incidents. Each of these entitles the member to contact KMBS support for assistance with one issue. This incident is considered used at the time of submission. Incidents may be credited back to the member at the sole discretion of KMBS in cases including, but not limited to, determination that the source of the issue is from a KMBS defect, the issue is due to a discrepancy between KMBS documentation and device behavior, or the issue is determined to be a limitation of the device due to product specification. Additional incidents can be purchased by contacting KMBS. Unused incidents will expire after one year of award via either yearly membership, or via purchase.

    Members at this level have the option of having KMBS perform certification testing to confirm that the Application and MFP perform as expected ("Certification"). This service is provided for an additional fee, and will need to be scheduled as outlined in Exhibit C.

    Platinum

    Platinum level members must pay an annual fee for access to the materials and programs offered at this level. Payment will be expected on the yearly anniversary of acceptance of the Program. Failure to pay this yearly fee may result in termination of membership within the Program.

    Members at this level are limited to access documentation and programs provided by KMBS via the bEST membership site for the purposes of developing an application that will be used by a user at the MFP, or to integrate with other existing functionality within the MFP. Any additional materials provided in response to support or other means are also covered by this Agreement. Support for the Materials provided at this level can be obtained by contacting KMBS Support via email.

    Included in the annual membership fee are five support incidents. Each of these entitles the Member to contact KMBS SEC development support via email for assistance with one issue. This incident is considered used at the time of submission. Incidents may be credited back to the Member at the sole discretion of KMBS in cases including, but not limited to, determination that the source of the issue is from a KMBS defect, the issue is due to a discrepancy between KMBS documentation and device behavior, or the issue is determined to be a limitation of the device due to product specification. Additional incidents can be purchased by contacting KMBS. Unused incidents will expire after one year of award via either yearly membership, or via purchase.

    Members at this level are not eligible to redistribute the Application developed with the technologies exclusive to membership at this level without the prior written permission of KMBS. This permission is granted after an application has obtained a PASSED rating for the Certification testing conducted by KMBS. The bEST Certification testing service is provided for an additional fee, and will need to be scheduled as outlined in Exhibit C. Technologies provided exclusively at this level are able to be utilized within the same organization for which membership is granted without express permission of KMBS. KMBS reserves the right to revoke permission to redistribute the Application developed with technologies at this level.

    As a Member, software developed within this level are not eligible for redistribution outside of the KMBS sales territory (currently defined as United States of America, Canada, United Mexican States, and the commonwealth of Puerto Rico) without prior written permission from the Konica Minolta sales organization responsible for that region.

  20. Exhibit C: Certification
  21. Requirements for the Certification, depending on membership level, are outlined in Exhibit C of this document.

    An additional fee is charged for each day of Certification. Payment must be provided before testing will commence, and failure to pay may result in forfeiture of the dates reserved for the Certification.

    In the event that the Certification test period is canceled by the Member, or the Member does not arrive at the start of Certification, the fee will be forfeit. In such an event, KMBS reserves the right to reschedule or cancel the Certification.

    Certification is provided as a service of KMBS at the request of the Member. Certification must be scheduled prior to testing. The Member can request dates for Certification. The Certification period will be scheduled based on the availability of the facilities and personnel. The Certification period can be changed with written notice from either KMBS or the Member. Scheduled dates are subject to change at the discretion of KMBS without prior consent of the Member until the Certification test fee has been received.
