In accordance with Switch’s sustainability efforts, and Switch’s Acceptable Use Policy, the following is Switch’s Recycling Acknowledgement Policy (the “Policy”) regarding the abandonment, removal, and/or disposal of Customer Equipment. Customer Equipment is defined in Switch’s Colocation Facilities Agreement, and in other governing agreements (“Agreements”) with Switch.

Subject to any other agreements with Switch and/or within three (3) days of such abandonment, Switch will dispose of Customer Equipment located at any Switch facility where a third party has not been hired to recycle and dispose of such Customer Equipment (several vendor options are listed below in Schedule 1). SWITCH PROVIDES THIS POLICY AS NOTICE OF DISPOSAL AND THIS IS THE ONLY NOTICE SWITCH PROVIDES BEFORE DISPOSAL OCCURS.

Should Switch be required to coordinate the removal and disposal of any Customer Equipment, Switch will invoice the customer for all related fees and associated costs. Customer acknowledges Switch does not attempt to logically or digitally access, manage, maintain, process, transmit, store, receive, process, sub-process, or in any way touch any form of data or other information on Customer Equipment. Accordingly, Switch shall neither protect nor be held responsible for any destruction or recycling of any data left on any Customer Equipment.

By abandoning Customer Equipment after termination of the Agreements, the customer covenants and agrees the abandoned Customer Equipment does not contain any confidential, sensitive, or proprietary Customer and/or personal data and information. The customer expressly waives any and all rights pertaining to the Customer Equipment upon any event invoking this Policy. The customer releases, indemnifies, and agrees to defend Switch regarding any claim, action, lawsuit, debt, demand, or obligation of any nature arising from the removal and/or disposal of Customer Equipment. Customer hereby gives Switch full and final release pertaining to any such claim, action, lawsuit, debt, demand or obligation of any nature whatsoever arising from the removal and disposal of abandoned Customer Equipment. Switch reserves the right to modify this Policy at any time, effective upon posting of the modified Policy to the following URL: (https://www.switch.com/recycling-notice-and-acknowledgement-policy/). Each provision of this Policy shall be interpreted to be effective and valid under applicable law. If any provision of this Policy is deemed to be prohibited or invalid under applicable law, such provision shall not render the remainder of this Policy invalid or inapplicable. This Policy shall be binding upon the customer and their respective successors and assigns. This Policy and any dispute concerning this Policy shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state where the Customer Equipment is located, excluding conflict of law rules.

If the customer has a Colocation Facility Waiver and a lessor has an ownership interest, lien, or security interest in any Customer Equipment within the colocation space (the “Collateral”), Switch will not be liable for any claims associated with any lien or security interest between the customer and the lessor. In the event the lessor removes any Collateral, the lessor acknowledges, agrees, and covenants to receive the Collateral “AS IS”, and “WHERE IS”, without guarantee as to quality, quantity, or value, and subject to Switch’s safety, sustainability, and security protocols.
