b. Licensor will use reasonable efforts to cure reported and reproducible defects in the iCM Environment. With respect to any such defect, Licensor will be responsible for the costs associated with the diagnosis and resolution of the defect in the iCM Environment if the defect is determined by Licensor to be related to the iCM Environment. If it is determined by Licensor that the defect is not related to the iCM Environment or is caused by a defect associated with Microsoft or a third party software provider, the Licensee agrees to pay Licensor's standard consulting rates for all time and potential expense associated with servicing the incident.
c. The iCM Environment is closely interrelated with Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations and third party software and Licensor is expressly not responsible for maintenance or support or defects associated with or caused by Microsoft Dynamics 365 or any other third party software functionality as determined by Licensor. Upon the Licensee's request, Licensor will assist Licensee in Licensee's initiation of a support incident with Microsoft or a third party software provider for Microsoft or the third party software provider to diagnose and resolve the Microsoft Dynamics 365 or third party software defect so long as Licensee has appropriate maintenance and support agreements in place with Microsoft and the third party software providers.
