apparent or otherwise, to contract for or on behalf of CSC, or in any
other way legally bind CSC in any fashion, nor shall Customer be

Customer a copy of CSC's then-current Customer Agreement with notice that
renewal is conditioned on Customer's agreement thereto, any renewal by
customer will be deemed to be an acceptance of the terms contained in such
subsequent Customer Agreement, rather than a renewal pursuant to the terms
contained herein. Upon automatic renewal of this Agreement, the Plan(s)
accepted by Customer shall be deemed to be the then-current Plan(s) most
closely resembling Customer's prior accepted Plan(s), provided that such
subsequent Plan(s) shall be at least as favorable to Customer as any prior
