     WHEREAS, GSI is in the business of creating, developing, operating,
maintaining, advertising and promoting all aspects of e-commerce business; and

     WHEREAS, TSA.com desires to enter into an agreement with GSI pursuant to
which GSI shall provide certain services to TSA.com, all upon the terms and
conditions hereinafter set forth;

     NOW, THEREFORE, the parties hereto, intending to be legally bound hereby,
agree as follows:

                                   ARTICLE I
                                  DEFINITIONS

     Terms used in this Agreement shall have the same meanings as set forth in

                                 GSI SERVICES

2.1  Services.  GSI agrees to perform all of the services and obligations on
     --------
behalf of TSA.com which TSA.com has agreed to perform for Retailer pursuant to
Articles II - IX and Article 10.2 of the E-Commerce Agreement (the "Services").

2.2  Payment and Accounting to GSI from TSA.com.  For the services rendered
     ------------------------------------------
hereunder, TSA.com shall pay to GSI an amount equal to all of GSI's commercially
reasonable actual direct costs (without markup) ("GSI's Direct Costs") of
creating and operating the TSA Site and TSA.com's pro rata share of GSI's
commercially reasonable actual  indirect costs (without markup)("GSI's Indirect
Costs").  The sum of GSI's Direct Costs and GSI's Indirect Costs shall be
referred to as "GSI's Entitlement."   GSI's Direct Costs shall include but not
be limited to


fulfillment costs (as discussed in Articles V and VI of the E-Commerce
Agreement), credit card costs, direct employee costs including salary and
benefits, front end development costs of the TSA Site and advertising and
marketing costs. Indirect Costs shall be determined in accordance with GAAP and
shall include, without limitation, GSI employee salary allocation, including
benefits, overhead allocation of GSI including rent, taxes (other than income
taxes) and utilities, GSI management personnel allocation, capital expenditures,
including hardware and software costs, common engine allocation and hosting
allocation. GSI shall not allocate or charge to TSA.com any sums as either GSI's
Direct Costs or GSI's Indirect Costs if the underlying Services, costs or
expenses were not directly or indirectly provided in relation to, or incurred
for, the TSA Site or performed or paid by GSI on behalf of TSA.com or Retailer
as otherwise provided in the E-Commerce Agreement.

2.3  TSA.com's Payments.  GSI's Entitlement shall be calculated and charged by
     ------------------
GSI to TSA.com on a monthly basis.   TSA.com  agrees to pay GSI all charges

                                  ARTICLE III
                  CUSTOMER DATA, FINANCIAL DATA AND DATABASES

3.1  [*]

3.2  Confidentiality of the Customer Data.  Under the E-Commerce Agreement, both
     ------------------------------------
Retailer and TSA.com have agreed that each Party shall treat the Customer Data
as Confidential Information of the other Party, that TSA.com may use Customer
Data in the operation of the TSA Site and the E-Commerce Business, and that
Retailer may use the Customer Data in the operation of Retailer's land based
stores, but that neither Retailer nor TSA.com shall furnish, rent, sell or
otherwise disclose Customer Data to any person or entity whatsoever without the
prior written consent of the other Party.  Further, under the E-Commerce
Agreement, both Retailer and TSA.com have agreed not to furnish, rent, sell or
otherwise disclose to any person or entity whatsoever any Financial Data,
without the other Party's prior written consent and subject to such terms and
conditions as the Parties may mutually determine.  Notwithstanding the
foregoing, Retailer and TSA.com have agreed that TSA.com may permit GSI, at no
charge to GSI, to use Financial Data (but not  Customer Data) to form trends and
overall research as to the on-line shopping habits of consumers.  GSI agrees to
treat the Customer Data as Confidential Information and shall not furnish, rent,
sell or otherwise disclose Customer Data to any person or entity whatsoever
without the prior written consent of Retailer.

3.3  Ownership and Use of Financial Data.  TSA.com, Retailer and GSI shall
     -----------------------------------
jointly and severally own all right, title and interest in and to the Financial
Data, except that all use of the

                                       2


Financial Data by any of them shall always be subject to the restrictions set
forth in the E-Commerce Agreement.

3.4  Ownership of Databases.  GSI shall own all right, title and interest in and
     ----------------------
to the Databases, while Retailer and TSA.com may use the Databases subject to
other restrictions set forth in the E-Commerce Agreement.

                                  ARTICLE IV
                                CONFIDENTIALITY

4.1  Confidential Information.  Each Party acknowledges that, in connection with
     ------------------------
the performance of this Agreement, it may receive Confidential Information of
the other Party and that GSI may receive Confidential Information of Retailer
(which shall be deemed a "Disclosing Party for purposes of this Agreement).  For
the purpose of this Agreement, "Confidential Information" shall mean information
or materials that is marked "confidential" or which the Receiving Party knows
has reason to know is the confidential or proprietary information of the
Disclosing Party, either because a) such information is marked or otherwise
identified by the Disclosing Party as confidential or proprietary, or b) such
information has commercial value and is not generally known in the Disclosing
Party's trade or industry.  Confidential Information shall include, without
limitation:  (a) concepts and ideas relating to the development and distribution
of content in any medium; (b) trade secrets, drawings, inventions, know-how,
software programs, and software source documents; (c) information regarding
plans for research, development, new service offerings or products, marketing
and selling, business plans, business forecasts, budgets and unpublished
financial statements, licenses and distribution arrangements, prices and costs,
suppliers and customers; (d) existence of any business discussions, negotiations
or agreements between the parties; (e) the terms and conditions of this
Agreement; (f) all information with respect to Retailer's vendors, Retailer's
price and cost structures, TSA.com's vendors, TSA.com's merchandise price and
cost structures, the cost of merchandise sold by TSA.com, the existence or
amount of any cooperative advertising subsidy or rebate; and (g) all prices of
merchandise to be sold on the TSA Site prior to publication of such prices on
the TSA Site; provided, however, that Retailer shall be provided with the
information referred to in clauses (f) and (g).

4.2  Confidentiality.  The Receiving Party hereby agrees: (i) to hold and
     ---------------
maintain in strict confidence all Confidential Information of the Disclosing
Party and, except as otherwise permitted herein, not to disclose it to any third
party; and (ii) not to use any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party
except as permitted by this Agreement or as may be necessary for the Receiving
Party to perform its obligations under this Agreement.  The Receiving Party
shall use at least the same degree of care to protect the Disclosing Party's
Confidential Information as it uses to protect its own Confidential Information
of like importance, and in no event shall such degree of care be less than
reasonable care.  The obligations and restrictions imposed by this Article IV
shall terminate five (5) years after the expiration or termination of this
Agreement.

4.3  Exceptions.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties agree that
     ----------
Confidential Information shall not include any information that:  (i) was in the
public domain at the time it

                                       3


was communicated to the Receiving Party by the Disclosing Party; (ii) entered
the public domain subsequent to the time it was communicated to the Recipient by
the Disclosing Party through no fault of the Receiving Party; (iii) was in the
Receiving Party's possession free of any obligation of confidence at the time it
was communicated to the Receiving Party by the Disclosing Party; (iv) was
rightfully communicated to the Receiving Party by a third party, free of any
obligation of confidence, subsequent to the time it was communicated to the
Receiving Party by the Disclosing Party; (v) was developed by employees or
agents of the Receiving Party independently of and without reference to any
information communicated to the Receiving Party by the Disclosing Party; or (vi)
was communicated by the Disclosing Party to an unaffiliated third party free of
any obligation of confidence. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose the
Disclosing Party's Confidential Information in response to a valid order by a
court or other governmental body, as otherwise required by law, or as necessary
to establish the rights of either party under this Agreement; provided, however,
in the event that the Receiving Party receives a demand to disclose such
Confidential Information in connection with a legal action or proceeding, the
Receiving Party, if possible, shall first notify the Disclosing Party of the
demand in order to provide the Disclosing Party an opportunity to seek a
protective order. TSA.com may also disclose certain of Retailer's Confidential
Information to GSI in connection with the performance by GSI of its duties, but
only to the extent expressly permitted herein.

4.4  Confidentiality of this Agreement.  The Parties acknowledge that the terms
     ---------------------------------
and conditions of this Agreement constitute Confidential Information which shall
be governed by the terms of this Article 4.

                                   ARTICLE V
                                   APPROVALS

5.1  Approval Process. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in the E-Commerce
     ----------------
Agreement and herein, and except with respect to any use of "Licensed Property"
(as defined in the License Agreement) which requires approval under the License
Agreement, when a given provision calls for prior review and approval by one
Party of a submission by the other Party, the Party receiving the submission
shall review it in a timely manner and use its best efforts to communicate in
writing its approval or disapproval as soon as practicable after receiving the
same. Failure to communicate approval within five (5) Business Days of receipt
of the submission shall be deemed a disapproval. The submitting Party may re-
start the approval process by making a second submission marked "Second
Request." The Party receiving the second submission shall again review it in a
timely manner and use its best efforts to communicate in writing its approval or
disapproval as soon as practicable after receiving the same. Failure to
communicate approval within five (5) Business Days of receipt of the submission
shall be deemed an approval. In no event, shall the Party seeking approval
produce, distribute, or otherwise follow through on or implement the subject of
the submission until approval is granted in writing by the Party charged with
the right of approval, or until the applicable period has expired after a Second
Request and the Party receiving the second submission has failed to reply.

                                   ARTICLE VI
                         REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

                                       4


6.1  Both Parties.  Each Party represents and warrants to the other Party that:
     ------------
(i) it is a corporation duly organized, validly existing and in good standing
under the laws of its state of incorporation and that it has the power and
authority to enter into this Agreement and the transactions contemplated herein;
(ii) the consummation of the transactions described by this Agreement shall not
conflict with or result in a breach of any of the terms, provisions or
conditions of its Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws, or any statute or
administrative regulation or any order, writ, injunction, judgment or decree of
any court, regulatory or governmental authority or of any agreement or
instrument to which it is a party or by which it is bound or constitute a
default thereunder; and (iii) this Agreement has been duly authorized, executed
and delivered by it and this Agreement is valid, enforceable and binding upon
each Party in accordance with its terms.

6.2  Year 2000.  GSI warrants to TSA. com and Retailer that the TSA Site shall
     ---------
not suffer any material adverse effect as a result of a failure in any TSA.com
Work Product or TSA.com Tools to be Y2K Compliant.  A product or service which
is "Y2K Compliant" is one that provides accurate results using data having date
ranges spanning from January 1, 1980 through December 31, 2019 ("Y2K Period").
By way of example and not of limitation, "Y2K Compliant" means, with respect to
a product or service, that it can currently and shall, during the Y2K Period,
continue to (a) manage and manipulate data involving all dates within the Y2K
Period (including the fact that the year 2000 is a leap year) without functional
or data abnormality related to such dates; (b) manage and manipulate data
involving all dates within the Y2K Period without inaccurate results related to
such dates; (c) have user interfaces and data fields formatted to distinguish
between dates within the Y2K Period; and (d) accurately identify and either
reject or correct invalid date data during the Y2K Period.  Provided TSA.com
otherwise complies with this Article 14.2, it shall not be liable to Retailer
for any failure to perform obligations under this Agreement to the extent such
failure arises from a failure to be Y2K Compliant that: (i) affects the non-
performing party's customers or suppliers; or (ii) is beyond its reasonable
control.

                                  ARTICLE VII
                                INDEMNIFICATION

7.1  GSI, at its own cost and expense, shall defend, indemnify and hold harmless
TSA.com and Retailer and any of their officers, directors, employees or agents
from and against all damages, expenses, liabilities and other costs (including
reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) arising:  (a) from a claim made by
any party (other than TSA.com or Retailer) that is related in any way to
services furnished by GSI with respect to the TSA Site or GSI's services to
TSA.com or Retailer provided pursuant to this Agreement; or (b) from GSI's gross
negligence, willful or intentional misconduct.  TSA.com or Retailer shall notify
GSI as soon as possible after TSA.com becomes aware of a claim.  GSI shall have
the sole right to defend any claim pursuant to this Article VII.  TSA.com and
Retailer shall cooperate with such defense and, at its option, may also defend
such claim to the extent that its interests in any way vary from that of GSI.

                                  ARTICLE VIII
                                   INSURANCE

8.1   GSI shall, during the Term of this Agreement, maintain the following
insurance coverages as indicated or as required by law, whichever shall be
greater, with insurers in good standing and authorized to do business under the
laws of the State(s) where performance shall occur:

      (a) Comprehensive General Liability, naming Retailer and TSA.com as an
additional insured, including without limitation Contractual Liability and

occurrence and $[*] annual aggregate;

      (b) Workers' Compensation and Employers' Liability with minimum limits of
$[*] per accident, $[*] disease (each employee) and $[*] disease (policy limit).

Upon TSA.com's or Retailer's request, GSI shall tender to TSA.com and/or
Retailer certificates of insurance evidencing the coverages required to be
maintained by GSI hereunder. The certificates must provide that no change or
cancellation of insurance shall be made without thirty (30) days prior written
notice to Retailer.

                                  ARTICLE IX
                             TERM AND TERMINATION

9.1   This Agreement shall commence on the Effective Date and automatically
terminate upon termination of the E-Commerce Agreement, or terminate pursuant to
Article 9.1(a) or (b) below:

      (a) By either party if the other party shall materially default in the
performance of  any of the covenants, terms and conditions of this Agreement and
shall fail to cure such default within 60 days after receipt of notice in
writing from the terminating party of such default, giving reasonable
particulars of such default and of the intention of the party serving the notice
to terminate this Agreement unless such default is cured; provided, however,
that if such default cannot reasonably  be cured within 60 days, no termination
shall occur so long as the party against which default has been declared
continues to use its best efforts to cure such default.

      (b) By either party if the other party shall be judicially declared
bankrupt or insolvent, make an assignment for the benefit of, or enter into a
compromise with, its creditors; initiate bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings of
any kind or proceedings for the appointment of a receiver, manager, judicial
manager, or similar official with respect to it or any of its assets or become a
party to dissolution proceedings; provided, however, that no termination shall
occur if any such action is stayed, dismissed or reversed within 60 days of the
initiation of such action and the other party provides satisfactory evidence of
the same within such period.

               NO IMPLIED WARRANTIES; LIMITATIONS UPON LIABILITY

10.1  Neither Party shall be liable to the other party for incidental,
consequential, punitive or exemplary damages arising in connection with this
