The complimentary/inclusive support period for the customization project begins from the date of delivery or after a maximum of one month of UAT (User Acceptance Testing) and would last no longer than three months.
In the rare case that NCRYPTED has not fixed technical support issues for any major defects CLIENT has submitted during the one to three month support duration and the support duration expires NCRYPTED agrees to continue assigning resources to these tickets until the issues are resolved. CLIENT may not add new issues to open tickets that have passed the support duration period, any new issues reported will be ignored unless a support extension has been purchased.

Client is free to perform an Acceptance Test at will on client's own consent. lf Client confirms that a Deliverable is free of errors and defects or has only Minor Defects, the Deliverable shall be deemed to have passed the acceptance test.
