SUPPORT LIFE CYCLE

End of Life Products/Versions identified in the table above will receive the following support services:

STANDARD SUPPORT: Provided the customer maintains a current support subscription for the product, Symantec will provide Standard Support for issues at all severity levels until the date identified in the table above. "Standard Support" means a level of Support Services that we provide to you in response to a Case. Standard Support is limited to modifications or additions to the Licensed Software that establish or restore substantial conformity with its Documentation. Standard Support also includes access to Content Updates (if applicable) as described herein. We will determine when it will be most effective to develop a new Fix, such as cases where there has been data loss, production system down, or significant security vulnerabilities identified, or other significant product defects. Note that sometimes "Standard Support" may be referred to as "Full Support" or "Normal Support."

PARTIAL SUPPORT: At the end of the period described above, we will cease providing any Standard Support, and we will cease providing any Content Updates. Instead, we will provide "Partial Support" for all Cases at all Severity Levels.  "Partial Support" is a more limited level of Support Services than you would receive under "Standard Support."  Partial Support is when our technical support engineer provides you with known Fixes/Patches/Workarounds, existing Maintenance Packs, or information from our technical knowledge base in response to your request for assistance. Partial Support does not include development of any new modifications to your Licensed Software. Nor will we attempt to reproduce the Problem or escalate issues through management channels or to our engineering resources. Such Partial Support will be subject to the availability of resources, and we may need to limit the time we are able to spend on the Problem.

END OF SUPPORT LIFE: When the previous versions identified in the table above reach their End of Support Life, we will cease providing any Standard Support and any Partial Support. Please refer to the worldwide Symantec Corporation Enterprise Technical Support Policy ("Policy"). This Policy may be updated from time to time, and a current version is located at: http://www.symantec.com/enterprise/support/Symantec_Support_Policy.pdf In the event of conflict between timelines or deliverables stated in this notice letter and those stated in the Policy, the terms of this notice letter will control to the extent of such conflict, and only with respect to the specific products and versions covered in this notice.
