*delivered hereunder within [             ] days of the initial Delivery date of
 such version of the HNC Software, or, if INFOSEEK gives Failure Notice, then 
*[        ] days of the initial Delivery date of such Version of the HNC
 Software, then INFOSEEK will conclusively be deemed to have accepted such
 Version of the HNC Software. INFOSEEK agrees to work closely in good faith
 cooperation with HNC to correct any performance failures in any Version of the
 HNC Software.

 3.4   Performance. INFOSEEK and HNC agree that, in the event that INFOSEEK
 provides documentary evidence which (a) demonstrates that the performance of
*the HNC Software does not meet competitive performance standards [       ]
 and (b) outlines the performance improvements necessary for the HNC Software
*to meet competitive performance standards [      ], the parties shall

         6.2    Maintenance and Support Services to be Provided. As used herein,
 the "SERVICE PERIOD" means that period of time commencing on the Effective Date
 and ending on the earlier to occur of (i) expiration of the Term, or (ii) the
 date of termination of this Agreement in accordance with Sections 16.2 or 16.3.
 During the Service Period, HNC agrees to provide INFOSEEK the following
 maintenance services for the HNC Software to support INFOSEEK's licensed Use of
 the HNC Software hereunder:

         6.2.1  HNC will provide INFOSEEK with any known problem solutions
 relating to HNC Software as such solutions become known to HNC.

         6.2.2  HNC will provide INFOSEEK with any commercially released
 modifications, improvements, and refinements to existing Versions and New
 Versions of HNC Software then used by INFOSEEK or INFOSEEK Clients that HNC may
 develop as soon as they are commercially available.

         6.2.3  Subject to the provisions of Section 4.1, HNC will provide the
 services described in Section 6.3 for the then most current Version of the HNC
 Software consistent with the latest published Documentation for such Version.

         6.2.4  HNC will provide INFOSEEK with reasonable access to HNC
 technical support personnel to address production software problems 365 days
 per year, seven (7) days per week, twenty four (24) hours per day via hotline

         6.3    Problem Corrections. If during the Service Period, INFOSEEK
 notifies HNC of any problem that it is experiencing with a Version of the HNC
 Software then supported by HNC under Section 6.2.3, or any material deviation
 from the Documentation of such Version, then HNC shall use its good faith
 efforts to promptly correct the problem or provide an adequate workaround
 solution for the problem in accordance with the terms of this Section 6.3.
 Subsections 6.3.1 through 6.3.4 below set forth the required standards for
 HNC's performance of its obligations under Section 6.2.3 and this Section 6.3
 in response to the respective levels of outages of the HNC Software described
 in this Section 6.3 that are caused by the HNC Software:

         6.3.1  A "SEVERITY 1 OUTAGE" is critical and either (a) stops
 operations of the HNC Software with no reasonable bypass or recovery
 procedures, or (b) consists of a system failure and crash of operations caused
 by the HNC Software. For a Severity 1 Outage, HNC will use its best efforts to
*restore operations within [                                  ] hours after HNC
 is notified by INFOSEEK of such Severity 1 Outage. Recovery status will be
*reported to INFOSEEK [                      ]. INFOSEEK will participate
 round-the-clock in HNC's recovery effort.

         6.3.2  A "SEVERITY 2 OUTAGE" does not stop operations of the HNC
 Software but severely impedes effective operations. For a Severity 2 Outage,
*HNC will use its best efforts to restore operations within [                ]
 after HNC is notified by INFOSEEK of such Severity 2 Outage. Recovery status
*will be reported to INFOSEEK [                              ].

         6.3.3  A "SEVERITY 3 OUTAGE" occurs when HNC Software operates
 effectively but does not provide all defined functions. For a Severity 3
 Outage, HNC will use its best efforts to restore the impaired functionality
*within [                           ] after HNC is notified by INFOSEEK of 
 such Severity 3 Outage. Recovery status will be reported to INFOSEEK 
*on a [        ].

         6.3.4  A "SEVERITY 4 OUTAGE" occurs when HNC Software provides all
 functions defined in the Documentation, but performance of a function is
 reasonably deemed by INFOSEEK to be unsatisfactory. For a Severity 4 Outage,
 resolution will be provided within a mutually agreed upon time frame, but in
 any event such time frame will be within a reasonable time. Recovery status
*will be reported to INFOSEEK [             ].

 of this Section 6.3 is found not to have been caused by the HNC Software, then
 INFOSEEK shall reimburse HNC for all costs and expenses (including but not
 limited to travel, accommodation, meal and overtime expenses) that HNC
 reasonably incurred in responding to such outage situation.

 to make any use of Confidential Information of the other party other than for
 the specific purposes of using such Confidential Information as contemplated by
 this Agreement. Each party's obligations of confidentiality under this Article
 11 shall survive the termination of this Agreement. Without limiting the
 generality of the foregoing, each party agrees:

includes the terms set forth in Exhibit C.

         11.5   Confidentiality of Agreement. The terms and conditions of this
Agreement are and shall remain and be kept completely confidential by the
parties and their employees and agents and shall not be disclosed to any third
party without the prior written consent of the other party; provided, however,
that either party may disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement to (i)
potential acquirers or financial investors or (ii) to their legal counsel and
accountants, and to governmental agencies or authorities (including but not
limited to the Securities and Exchange Commission) or otherwise if such party
believes such disclosure is legally required. If a party needs to disclose the
terms of this Agreement for financial investment purposes or is legally required
to disclose the terms of this Agreement to any governmental agency or authority
it will promptly so advise the other party and attempt to limit disclosure and
seek confidential treatment of such disclosed information.

         11.6   Remedies; Survival. HNC and INFOSEEK agree that in the event 
that either party breaches any of the provisions contained in this Article 11,
then, notwithstanding the provisions of Article 19, the nonbreaching party shall
be authorized and entitled to seek from any court of competent jurisdiction (i)
a temporary restraining order, (ii) preliminary and permanent injunctive relief,
and (iii) an equitable accounting for all profits or benefits arising out of
such breach. Such rights or remedies shall be cumulative and in addition to any
other rights or remedies to which the non-breaching party may be entitled. The
provisions of this Article 11 shall continue in effect following termination of
this Agreement and expiration or termination of the Term.

                                 INDEMNIFICATION

          14.1   Loss Defined. As used in this Article 14, the term "LOSS"
 means, collectively, loss, liability, damages, judgments, awards of settlement,
 cost or expense (including court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees) paid to
 a third party.

          14.2   HNC Infringement. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
 Article 14, HNC shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend INFOSEEK, its
 affiliates and their respective employees, officers and directors
 (collectively, "INFOSEEK INDEMNITEES") from and against any and all Loss with
 respect to any suit or proceeding brought against INFOSEEK arising out of or
 based on any claim, demand, or action alleging that the HNC Software or any
 portion thereof as furnished under this Agreement and used within the scope of
 the License granted to INFOSEEK hereunder misappropriates a trade secret
 protected under the laws of any country within the Territory (or political
 subdivision thereof) or infringes any copyright, Territory Patent, or other
 non-patent Intellectual Property rights of any third party that are protectable
 under the laws of any country within the Territory (or political subdivision
 thereof); provided however, that in order to receive such indemnification
 INFOSEEK must comply with all INFOSEEK's obligations under Section 14.6.
 Notwithstanding the foregoing, HNC shall not be required to indemnify, hold
 harmless or defend INFOSEEK: (a) to the extent such infringement is caused by
 the combination, operation or use of the HNC Software with: (i) any INFOSEEK
 Software, except as such combination, operation or use is contemplated by this
 Agreement; or (ii) any other equipment, software, data or programming not
 supplied by HNC; (b) to the extent such infringement arises from any alteration
 or modification of the HNC Software not authorized by HNC; or (c) for any
 settlement or compromise of a suit, proceeding, claim, demand or action unless
 HNC has consented in advance to such settlement or compromise in writing (with
 HNC's consent thereto not to be unreasonably withheld). In the event that the
 HNC Software or any portion thereof, as furnished by HNC under this Agreement
 and used within the scope of the License granted to INFOSEEK hereunder, is held
 in such a suit or proceeding to misappropriate a trade secret protected under
 the laws of any country within the Territory (or any political subdivision
 thereof) or to infringe a copyright, Territory Patent, or any other non-patent
 Intellectual Property rights of a third party that arise, and are enforceable,
 under the laws of a country within the Territory (or any political subdivision
 thereof), and as a result of such misappropriation or infringement, the use of
 the HNC Software or portion thereof by INFOSEEK or Licensed INFOSEEK Clients as
 licensed by HNC hereunder is enjoined, then HNC shall use its best efforts to,
 at HNC's sole option and expense: (1) procure for INFOSEEK the right to
 continue using the HNC Software or portion thereof; or (2) replace the same
 with noninfringing software of equivalent functions and efficiency as described
 in the Specifications for the then-current Version of the HNC Software that is
 then being used by INFOSEEK on the Designated System.

          14.3   INFOSEEK Infringement. Subject to the terms and conditions of
 this Article 14, INFOSEEK shall indemnify, hold harmless and defend HNC, its
 affiliates and their respective employees, officers and directors
 (collectively, "HNC INDEMNITEES") from and against any and all Loss with
 respect to any suit or proceeding brought against HNC arising out of or based
*on any claim, demand, or action alleging that the [         ] as furnished
 under this Agreement and used within the scope of this Agreement
 misappropriates a trade secret protected under the laws of any country within
 the Territory (or political subdivision thereof) or infringes any copyright,
 Territory Patent, or other non-patent Intellectual Property rights of any third
 party that are protectable under the laws of any country within the Territory
 (or political subdivision thereof); provided, however, that in order to receive
 such indemnification HNC must comply with all HNC's obligations under Section

 indemnify, hold

 under this Agreement and used within the scope of this Agreement, is held in
 such a suit or proceeding to misappropriate a trade secret protected under the
 laws of any country within the Territory (or any political subdivision thereof)
 or to infringe a copyright, Territory Patent, or any other non-patent
 Intellectual Property rights of a third party that arise, and are enforceable,
 under the laws of a country within the Territory (or any political subdivision
 thereof), and as a result of such misappropriation or infringement, the use of
 the INFOSEEK Software, Data or portion thereof by HNC hereunder is enjoined,

 expense: (1) procure for HNC the right to continue using the INFOSEEK Software,
 Data or portion thereof, or (2) replace the same with noninfringing software or
 data.

         14.4   HNC Gross Negligence or Willful Misconduct. Subject to the terms
 and conditions of this Article 14 and the limitations on HNC's liability under
 Article 15, HNC shall indemnify and hold harmless INFOSEEK Indemnitees and
 Licensed INFOSEEK Clients against any and all direct pecuniary Loss actually
 suffered or incurred by any INFOSEEK Indemnitee or any Licensed INFOSEEK Client
 as a result of claims or demands for recovery for personal injury or damage to
 tangible property brought by a third party or parties against any INFOSEEK
 Indemnitee or any Licensed INFOSEEK Client that arise out of HNC's gross
 negligence or willful misconduct in performing any of the services to be
 performed by HNC pursuant to this Agreement; provided, however, that HNC shall
 not be obligated to so indemnify INFOSEEK or any Licensed INFOSEEK Client for
 any such claim or demand unless INFOSEEK has complied with all INFOSEEK's
 obligations under Section 14.6 with respect to such claim or demand.

         14.5   INFOSEEK Gross Negligence or Willful Misconduct. Subject to the
 terms and conditions of this Article 14 and the limitations on INFOSEEK's
 liability under Article 15, INFOSEEK shall indemnify and hold harmless HNC and
 its employees, officers and directors (collectively, "HNC INDEMNITEES") against
 any and all direct pecuniary Loss actually suffered or incurred by any HNC
 Indemnitee as a result of claims or demands for recovery for personal injury or
 damage to tangible property brought by a third party or parties against HNC
 Indemnitees that arise out of INFOSEEK's gross negligence or willful misconduct
 in performing any of the services to be performed by INFOSEEK pursuant to this
 Agreement; provided, however, that INFOSEEK shall not be obligated to so
 indemnify HNC or any HNC Client for any such claim or demand unless HNC has
 complied with all HNC's obligations under Section 14.6 with respect to such
 claim or demand.

         14.6   Conditions to Indemnification. In the event that a claim,
 demand, suit or proceeding for which indemnification or defense may be
 available under the foregoing provisions of this Article 14 (a "CLAIM") is
 brought, made or filed, then as a condition to receiving indemnification for,
 or defense of, such Claim, the party to this Agreement against whom (or against
 whose eligible client or customer) the Claim is brought, made or filed (the
 "INDEMNIFIED PARTY") shall: (i) promptly notify the other party (the
 "INDEMNIFYING PARTY") in writing of such Claim; provided, however, that any
 delay in providing notice of a Claim shall not relieve the indemnifying party
 from its obligation hereunder to provide indemnity for such Claim unless such
 delay is materially prejudicial to the indemnifying party's ability to defend
 such Claim; (ii) allow the indemnifying party to control and direct the defense
 and settlement of such

Claim; and (iii) provide the indemnifying party with information and assistance
as reasonably required by the indemnifying party for the defense and settlement
of the Claim. The indemnified party may at all times participate in the defense
or settlement of the Claim at its own expense, subject to the indemnifying
party's right to direct and control such defense and settlement; provided,
however, that, notwithstanding the foregoing, if the indemnifying party does not
assume the defense of any such Claim, then, without forfeiting its rights to
indemnification hereunder, the indemnified party may assume, direct and control
the defense of the Claim. Subject to the immediately preceding sentence, the
indemnifying party shall have the right, at its cost and expense, to direct and
control the defense of any Claim for which it must provide indemnification or
defense hereunder with counsel selected by the indemnifying party unless the
indemnified party reasonably objects to use of such counsel on the basis that:
(i) such counsel has a conflict of interest in representing both of the parties
or (ii) the indemnified party determines in good faith that such counsel does
not have the required expertise to adequately represent the indemnified party in
connection with such type of Claim. In such case the indemnifying party will
promptly select new counsel to defend the Claim. Without giving up the right to
indemnity, the indemnified party shall not compromise or settle any such Claim
without the prior written consent of the indemnifying party, which consent shall
not be unreasonably withheld. Any claim for indemnification under this Agreement
must be made prior to two (2) years after the party claiming indemnification
becomes aware of the Claim with respect to which indemnification is claimed.

         14.7   Exclusive Remedy. The rights of a party hereto to 
indemnification under the provisions of this Article 14, as limited by the
provisions of Article 15, are intended by the parties to be the sole and
exclusive rights and remedies of the party entitled to indemnification with
respect to the matters with respect to which such party has is entitled to
indemnification under this Article 14.

                                   ARTICLE 15
                             LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

provision of this Agreement, in no event shall HNC be liable to INFOSEEK or any
INFOSEEK Client for any indirect, special, consequential, punitive or exemplary
damages of any kind whatsoever, regardless of whether such damages were
foreseeable or whether HNC had been advised of the possibility of such damages.
In addition, HNC shall not be liable to INFOSEEK, any INFOSEEK Client or any
INFOSEEK Indemnitee for any claims or Loss to the extent such claims or Loss
relate to or arise from a defect or other inherent failure of INFOSEEK Software

beyond the reasonable control of HNC.

*Acceptance Date (the [        ]); provided, however, if this Agreement has not
*been terminated prior to the [        ], then, commencing on the [        ],
*the Expiration Date shall be extended for a period of [        ] Acceptance
 Date , this Agreement has been terminated in accordance with the terms of this
 Agreement.

          16.2   Termination for Material Breach. If a party to this Agreement
 commits a material breach of any of its material obligations or covenants under
 this Agreement (the "BREACHING PARTY"), then the other party to this Agreement
 (the "TERMINATING PARTY") may terminate this Agreement if such material breach
*remains uncured for [         ] days after the date the Terminating Party has
 given written notice of such material breach to the Breaching Party; provided,
*however, that in the event of [                              ], and if the
 material breach remains uncured after such applicable cure period, then
 (provided that the Terminating Party is not itself then in material breach of
 this Agreement) the Terminating Party may terminate this Agreement immediately
 by giving written notice of its termination of this Agreement to the Breaching
 party.

          16.3   Other Grounds for Termination. To the extent permitted by
 applicable law (including 11 U.S.C. Section 365) a party (the "NON-DEFAULTING
 PARTY") may terminate this Agreement immediately by written notice to the other
 in the event the other party makes an assignment for the benefit of its
 creditors, admits in writing an inability to pay debts as they mature, a
 trustee or receiver is appointed respecting all or a substantial part of the
 other party's assets, or a proceeding is instituted by or against the other
 party under any provision of the Federal Bankruptcy Act and is acquiesced in or
 is not dismissed within sixty (60) days, or results in an adjudication of
 bankruptcy. To the extent applicable law prevents the non-defaulting party from
 terminating this Agreement, if it should wish to do so as described above, then
 the parties shall have only those rights and remedies permitted by applicable
 law, including the United States Bankruptcy Act including but not limited to 11
 U.S.C. Section 365. However the non-defaulting party has the unrestricted right
 at its option not to terminate this Agreement and, to continue to exercise its
 rights under this Agreement.

          6.4    Effect of Termination.  Upon termination of this Agreement, (a)
*all rights of INFOSEEK and [                 ] to Use the HNC Software

         18.11   Force Majeure. No party shall be liable for any failure to

of the foregoing, such causes shall include acts of God or the public enemy,
fires, floods, storms, tornadoes, earthquakes, riots, strikes, blackouts, wars
or war operations, restraints of government, or other causes which could not
with reasonable diligence be controlled or prevented by the parties.

         18.12   Severability. Whenever possible, each provision of this 
Agreement shall be interpreted in such manner as to be effective and valid under
applicable law, but if any provision of this Agreement is held to be prohibited

INFOSEEK and HNC, arising from or in connection with this Agreement or the
relationship of the parties under this Agreement, whether based on contract,
tort, common law, equity, statute, regulation, order or otherwise, other than a

rights (a "DISPUTE"), shall be resolved as follows:





                                                                         PAGE 26

                  19.1.1   First, upon written request of either INFOSEEK or 
HNC, the parties will each appoint a designated representative whose task it
will be to meet for the purpose of endeavoring to resolve such Dispute. The
designated representatives shall be senior level managers of each party with the
authority to make decisions and/or commitments on behalf of the respective party
to resolve the Dispute.

                  19.1.2   The designated representatives shall meet as often as
the parties reasonably deem necessary to discuss the problem in an effort to
resolve the Dispute without the necessity of any formal proceeding.

                  19.1.3   Unless delay would impair a party's rights under
applicable statutes of limitations, formal proceedings for the resolution of a
Dispute may not be commenced until the earlier of:

                           19.1.3.1   the designated representatives concluding 
in good faith that amicable resolution through continued negotiation of the
matter does not appear likely; or

                           19.1.3.2   the expiration of the thirty (30) day 
period immediately following the initial request to negotiate the Dispute;
provided, however, that this Section 19.1 will not be construed to prevent a
party from instituting formal proceedings earlier to avoid the expiration of any
applicable limitations period, to preserve a superior position with respect to
other creditors, or to seek temporary or preliminary injunctive relief from a
court pursuant to Article 11.

         19.2   Temporary Restraining Order. Nothing in Section 19.1 shall be
construed to prevent any party from seeking from a court a temporary restraining
order or other temporary or preliminary relief pending final resolution of a
Dispute pursuant to Section 19.1.

         19.3   Other Dispute Resolution.  If the parties fail to resolve any 
dispute under Section 19.1 then they pursue any other available remedies.

         IN WITNESS WHEREOF, HNC and INFOSEEK have caused this Agreement to be
signed and delivered by their duly authorized officers, as of the Effective
Date.

 dissemination system known commercially as the SelectCast(TM) system, and
 specifically defined as the following:

 1.  SelectCast Context Vector Learning Service (a service provided to
 INFOSEEK).

 2.  SelectCast Analysis and Characterization Module, Versions 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 
*supplied as object code [                                 ] performed as a 
 service to INFOSEEK.

*3.  SelectCast Real-Time [           ] Module, Versions 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 
 supplied as object code.

 The sections below describe these software components. The development and
*installation of these components will be performed in [         ]. The schedule
*of implementation of the [          ] is shown in Section 2. The summary of
*functionality, by component, by [            ] is shown below in Figure 1.

 format compatible with the balance of the SelectCast system as outlined in
 Section 1 above. The specific tasks and actions associated with this service
 are as follows:

*1.  HNC will accept [                          ] from INFOSEEK to be used as 
*part of the [            ] learning process.  This data will be provided as a 
*UNIX tar tape of flat ASCII files.  This electronic [     ] may consist of 
*[                                  ], and [                      ] and/or 
*[                       ].

 2.  If the volume of data is insufficient, HNC may, at its option, elect to
 augment this data set with "general knowledge" corpora to meet training volume
 requirements.

*3.  HNC will apply its patented [           ] learning algorithm to learn 
*[                ] relationships based on the information provided by INFOSEEK 
 for training purposes. HNC will perform testing to insure the quality of the 
*resulting [                ].

* FIGURE 4. VERSION [ ] SCHEDULE AND MILESTONES. 3. Software Acceptance Criteria and Testing 3.1 Criteria HNC agrees to test the HNC Software as installed on the INFOSEEK system to detect and remedy material malfunctions. Such testing shall be designed to discover material defects that might prevent proper operation of the HNC Software in the INFOSEEK system environment. This testing will be performed as part of mutually agreed upon software acceptance test criteria. The criteria will be defined by version by module with the definition of the criteria to occur during the requirements definition portion of each phase. It is expected that the software acceptance test will contain, as a minimum, the following criteria: 1. Throughput rate in terms of transactions per second. *2. Method for establishment of a performance baseline for [ ] precision. - ------------------------- *Confidential Treatment Requested For Redacted Portion PAGE 37 38 *3. SelectCast precision of [ ] over baseline performance in terms of false positive selections. Other criteria, as appropriate, may be defined as part of the requirements analysis process for each phase. 3.2 Testing Testing will be conducted in three steps: 1. A factory test shall be performed to establish the correct operation of the specific version of the SelectCast system relative to the agreed upon requirements for that version. This test will verify correct API behavior between the client and server and will verify the responses for a fixed set of *test data consisting of a sample of [ ]. 2. An installation test shall be performed to establish the correct operation of the SelectCast system in the INFOSEEK environment. In this test, the test data set utilized for the factory test will be submitted to the SelectCast system. The results will be logged and compared to the results of the factory test. The SelectCast system shall be deemed operational if the results are identical. 3. A performance test suite shall be developed to assess the precision and throughput of the SelectCast system in the INFOSEEK environment. This set of tests and the data to be used for the test will be mutually agreed upon. INFOSEEK should be aware that a set of relevance judgments, provided by INFOSEEK, will be required to test precision of the SelectCast system. These judgments necessarily will be produced as a result of human intellectual effort and, ad such, will require expenditure of labor hours. These relevance judgments can be captured in a database for re-use, thus minimizing recurring costs. However, the setup costs will remain. It is anticipated that the planning for the development of this testing data set will be performed during the requirements and planning portion of each phase. The actual testing will be performed first at HNC as part of the software customization process, then again at INFOSEEK to complete the testing process. - ------------------------- *Confidential Treatment Requested For Redacted Portion PAGE 38 39 EXHIBIT B FORM OF ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATE This Acceptance Certificate has been executed this day of , 19 , by authorized representatives of HNC Software Inc., a Delaware corporation ("HNC") and Infoseek Corporation, a Delaware corporation ("INFOSEEK") under a certain License and Software Distribution Agreement dated , 1996, between HNC and INFOSEEK.
