1. Primary Support Program Agent requests participation in the
New York Life Insurance Company (“NYL”) Field Technology Support

Documents below, beginning on the Initial Effective Date, which

permitted herein
Additional Support Options

Sales Central Platinum Support:

(Note: if you choose either Additional Support Option, you must also
be enrolled in the primary support).
Agent enrolls in the Support Program for a minimum term of 12
months from the election date. The number of calls and dispatch
hours that the Agent is entitled to are based on the original start date.
There is no carry over provision for unused calls or dispatch hours. All
changes will become effective on the first day of the first full month
following NYL’s receipt of Agent’s signed election form. All signed
election forms shall be delivered to the General Office’s Administrative
Officer. 12 month support terms renew automatically unless
terminated as provided in this Authorization or in the Operating
Documents. Agent may terminate this Authorization as of the end of
the then current 12 month term by giving NYL 10 day’s prior written
2. Ledger Authorization Agent authorizes NYL to debit
Agent's ledger as of the first business day of each calendar month in
the amount of the then current Support Program service fee(s) (“Service
Fee”), which amount may be changed by NYL from time to time upon
no less than 10 days prior notice to Agent. The Service Fees will appear
as debits on Agent’s ledger and will be included in the calculation of
Agent’s periodic compensation. Check with your General Office’s
Office Manager for the current Service Fee. Agent understands that,
beginning with the second consecutive calendar month in which Agent's
ledger contains a debit balance as of the first business day of the month
and continuing for each calendar month thereafter in which Agent's
ledger contains a debit balance as of the first business day of the month,
Agent will be required to pay the Service Fee by personal check made
payable to New York Life Insurance Company, on or before the close
of business on the fourth business day of the next month. This payment
shall be in an amount representing the total of all Service Fees due NYL
to that date that were not debited from Agent’s monthly ledger. NYL
shall debit Agent’s ledger until Agent’s participation in the Support Program
3. Non-covered Support The Support Program does not cover support
for any hardware or non-NYL sanctioned software, and Agent is and shall
remain solely responsible for such support.
4. Security and Protection of Customer Data Agent acknowledges
that it is his/her obligation to protect and secure NYL’s customer data. Agent
agrees that before
accessing any customer data of any kind under this Support
Program by Agent or Agent’s employees, agents or independent contractors
(“Agent Staff”), Agent will have installed the then current NYL authorized data
encryption software, in accordance with instructions provided by NYL through
its Field News or other reasonable methods, on any and all personal computers,
devices or other equipment on which Agent or Agent Staff intends to access
and/or store customer data. Failure to do so will be a material breach of this
agreement and will subject Agent to any liability resulting therefrom. In addition
NYL reserves the right to immediately terminate this agreement should Agent
fail to install such software as required in this paragraph or otherwise comply
with any requirements set forth in the Operating Documents.
5. Amendment/Termination NYL reserves the right to amend or
terminate this Support Program and/or the Service Fee upon 10 days prior
notice to Agent through NYL’s Field News or other reasonable method of
notification. Within 10 days of any change to the Support Program or Support
Fees, Agent may terminate this Authorization and Agent’s participation in the
Support Program. Agent’s participation in the Support Program will terminate
automatically if Agent’s relationship with NYL terminates for any reason.
6. Liability In no event shall NYL or any third party support provider be
liable to Agent or any other person for any personal injury, property damage,
loss of data or content of software programs, or similar claims for loss or liability
arising out of, or in any way related to this Agreement. Furthermore, neither
NYL or any third party support provider shall be liable for any direct or indirect,
special, incidental, or consequential damages or loss of profits, regardless of the
cause or theory of action whether in contract, tort or otherwise, related to this
Support Program and this Authorization (or any breach hereof) even if they have
been advised of the possibility of such damages. Agent shall be solely
responsible for all loss or damage to any of Agent’s equipment, software or data.
Under no circumstances shall NYL or any third party support provider be liable
for any loss or damage to Agent’s equipment, software or data resulting from
the performance of the Support Program. AGENT IS STRONGLY ADVISED
7. No Offsets No failure by NYL or its third party support provider to
perform any of its obligations under the Support Program shall give Agent any
right to any offset against, or to otherwise delay, diminish or fail to perform, any
payment or other obligation due or owed by Agent.
8. Assignment This Authorization is not assignable by Agent.
