2. Brightics AI Technical Support Period


 Technical support end date calculation method is to calculate the end date of the technical support for the old version when a new version is released.
For example, when the new version of v3.7 is released, the old version of v3.6 will be calculated from that point and will end sales 12months later, and after 36months later, no technical support of any kind will be provided for 
the old version v3.6. It is strongly recommended that your software is upgraded to the latest version released. Extended Technical support is optional and provided for up to 12 months by mutual agreement between Samsung SDS and the Customers. 
And, during the extended technical support period, a 15% rate will be added to the existing contract amount.
