FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT « MACHINE TO MACHINE SERVICES »
Matooma offers outsourcing services for managing connected objects using public electronic communication networks. Thanks to its specific offer of multi-operator connectivity, it provides its customers with services allowing them to manage the connected objects and the consumption of these services, via a dedicated management portal.
As such, Matooma acts as an intermediary between professionals who use connected objects, manufacturers and operators of electronic communications.
Matooma is not an operator operating an electronic communications network or an electronic communications service provider to the public. It relies on the electronic communications networks and services of third-party operators and relies on the quality of these networks and services to provide its own services under this Framework Agreement.
The Customer has stated that its needs are typical and do not have any unusual requirements in the operation of connected objects, electronic communication, and access to the management portal. It acknowledges that the use of the services are not appropriate for connecting medical devices and for transmitting personal monitoring data, which may require higher levels of security and availability than the services offered by Matooma.
The security and availability levels of the Matooma services connections are similar to those of the electronic communications networks used by Matooma.
Matooma replied to the Customer's questions concerning the essential characteristics of its services, which are also described in the contract below.
The Customer has stated that he has carefully read and understood the terms of this Framework Agreement and the Implementation Agreement. It has decided to commit itself after having verified that the services and their supply methods meet its needs.
In this context, the Parties have come together to conclude this Framework Agreement and the Implementation Agreement.

Subscription pricing can also be determined on the basis of one or more pre-determined monthly consumption profiles of the Communicating Terminal (hereinafter referred to as the "Profile (s)") in Annex 1 of the Commercial Offer.
A Profile defines, for a Subscription, a monthly consumption ceiling per type of Electronic Communication (hereinafter the "Ceiling").
All Ceilings under the same Profile in respect of Subscriptions subscribed by the Customer to the same Operator are accumulated in order to constitute the overall monthly consumption ceiling for a specific Profile of the Customer with the said Operator (hereinafter referred to as the "Ceiling by Profile and Operator ").
The Ceiling by Profile and Operator is therefore constituted, for each type of Electronic Communications, of the Ceiling multiplied by the number of Subscriptions with the same Profile and Operator.
Thus, the Customer benefits from a monthly pooling of all the consumption of subscriptions with the same profile with the same Operator. Consequently, for the same Operator, the monthly consumption of Subscriptions below the Ceiling will not be the subject of any additional costs for the Customer.
In the case of monthly subscriptions of Subscriptions with an identical Profile subscribed to the same Operator exceeding the Ceiling of a Profile and Operator (hereinafter referred to as the "Excess"), the Customer will be invoiced for the Excess as set out in Annex 1 of the Commercial Offer.
1. Subscription Profile – Type 1

In the event of an Incident, the Customer must declare it to Matooma by making an Incident Declaration via the Tool.
The Customer can keep track of the Incidents it has recorded via the Tool, accessible at any time
In its Incident Declaration, the Customer must provide all relevant information to enable Matooma to identify the priority level of the Incident and make a diagnosis.
Upon receipt of the Incident Declaration, Matooma may request further information which must be provided by the Customer as soon as possible to enable the Incident Declaration to be finalised.
6.3. Incident priority level

Matooma diagnoses that the Incident is related to Matoowan's connectivity settings.
Matooma diagnoses that the Incident is related to the Matoowan's infrastructure or the Customer's VPN.
Matooma diagnoses that the Incident is linked to the Supplier's infrastructure.
6.4. Response and Resolution times
The response and resolution times below are counted only during Opening Hours for Standard SLAs and Premium Premium SLAs.
6.4.1. Response times
Response times must be calculated from the time of receipt by Matooma of a properly completed Incident Declaration sent via the Tool.

These response times result from the policy of escalation of technical research carried out by Matooma as set out in Annex 1 of the Commercial Offer.
Each Incident is first analysed at Level 1. If there is no resolution possible at Level 1, the Incident passes to Level 2 and in the absence of a resolution at Level 2, the Incident changes to Level 3.
Thus, Matooma transfers each Incident Declaration to a higher technical level if the Incident is not resolved at the level of qualification at which it is analyzed.

Level of availability
99≤ SLA <100

The amount of any penalty is calculated on the basis of the availability rate recorded over a calendar month.
The cumulative number of minutes for which the availability rate is less than the contractual level during the duration of the Incident (s) serves as the basis for settling the penalty system.
The basis of the penalties is the amount of the invoice corresponding to the month concerned by the calculation of the availability rate (Subscription access to the service excluding Premium SLA).
For each applicable month considered, the amount of the penalty is applied to the Subscription value of the month n + 1 in the form of a credit.
Customer acknowledges that the Services are provided in accordance with the availability levels set forth in this Implementation Agreement; Incidents encountered in the provision of the Services do not absolve the Customer from full payment of invoices due for Services, with the sole exception being the compensation for any penalties owed by Matooma in accordance with Article 7 of the Implementation Agreement.
