     *Note: (Insert Explanation as Necessary)


                 Toast, Inc. has spent substantial effort in developing this product and it is one of the first of its kind in industry.
                 Having the subject information easily available to "competition" would negate the advantage they have achieved by
                 developing this product. Not protecting the details of the design will result in financial hardship.

                 Permanent Confidentiality:
                 The applicant requests the exhibits listed above as permanently confidential be permanently withheld from public
                 review due to materials that contain trade secrets and proprietary information not customarily released to the public.

                 Short-Term Confidentiality:
                 The applicant requests the exhibits selected above as short term confidential be withheld from public view for a
                 period of (specify number of days not to exceed 180)2 days from the date of the Grant of Equipment Authorization
                 and prior to marketing. This is to avoid premature release of sensitive information prior to marketing or release of the
                 product to the public. Applicant is also aware that they are responsible to notify Timco in the event information
                 regarding the product or the product is made available to the public. Timco will then release the documents listed
                 above for public disclosure pursuant to FCC Public Notice DA 04-1705.

                 NOTE for Industry Canada Applications:
                 The applicant understands that until such time that IC distinguishes between Short Term and Permanent
                 Confidentiality, either type of marked exhibit above will simply be marked Confidential when submitted to IC.

                 Sincerely,

    - The asterisked items (*) require further justification before permanent confidentiality will be allowed. These also currently require
      review by the FCC under their Permit-But-Ask policy before the grant is issued and can delay completion of an application. Further
      justification should be added to the note above. One such example for a potted device would be: “The EUT is FULLY potted using a
      non-removable epoxy based material. Removal of potting material causes irreparable damage to internal circuitry. See photographs
      exhibits that outline the device before and after potting.”
