SCHEDULE 2 – SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
This Service Level Agreement (SLA) is a policy governing the use of the Priava Service under the terms of the User Agreement between Priava and you. This SLA applies separately to each Account. Unless otherwise provided herein, this SLA is subject to the terms of the User Agreement and capitalized terms will have the meaning specified in the User Agreement. We reserve the right to change the terms of this SLA in accordance with the User Agreement.
Priava will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Priava Service available with an Annual Uptime Percentage of at least 99.95% during the Service Year. In the event Priava does not meet the Annual Uptime Percentage commitment, you will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below.
Service Year is the preceding 365 days from the date of an SLA claim.
Annual Uptime Percentage is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of 5 minute periods during the Service Year in which the Priava Service is unavailable to you. If you have been using the Priava Service for less than 365 days, your Service Year is still the preceding 365 days but any days prior to your use of the Priava Service will be deemed to have had 100% availability. Any downtime occurring prior to a successful Service Credit claim cannot be used for future claims. Annual Uptime Percentage measurements exclude downtime resulting directly or indirectly from any Priava Exclusion (defined below).
Unavailable means that all of your running instances of the Priava Service have no external connectivity during a five minute period and you are unable to launch replacement instances.
Eligible Credit Period is a single month, and refers to the monthly billing cycle in which the most recent Unavailable event included in the SLA claim occurred.
Service Credit is a dollar credit, calculated as set forth below, that we may credit back to an eligible Account.
Service Commitments and Service Credits
If the Annual Uptime Percentage for a customer drops below 99.95% for the Service Year, that customer is eligible to receive a Service Credit equal to 10% of their bill for the Eligible Credit Period. To file a claim, a customer does not have to wait 365 days from the day they started using the service or 365 days from their last successful claim. A customer can file a claim any time their Annual Uptime Percentage over the trailing 365 days drops below 99.95%.
We will apply any Service Credits only against future Service Fee payments otherwise due from you; provided that, we may issue the Service Credit to the credit card that you used to pay the Service Fee for the billing cycle in which the error occurred. Service Credits shall not entitle you to any refund or other payment from Priava. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable monthly billing cycle is greater than one dollar ($1 AUD). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other Account. Unless otherwise provided in the User Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability or non-performance of the Priava Service or other failure by us to provide the Priava Service is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.
Credit Request and Payment Procedures
To receive a Service Credit, you must submit a request by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be eligible, the credit request must (i) include your Account number in the subject of the e-mail message; (ii) include, in the body of the e-mail, the dates and times of each incident of Unavailable that you claim to have experienced including instance ids of the instances that were running and affected during the time of each incident; (iii) include your server request logs that document the errors and corroborate your claimed outage (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks); and (iv) be received by us within thirty (30) business days of the last reported incident in the SLA claim. If the Annual Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by us and is less than 99.95% for the Service Year, then we will issue the Service Credit to you within one billing cycle following the month in which the request occurred. Your failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify you from receiving a Service Credit.
The Service Commitment does not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of the Priava Service, or any other Priava Service performance issues: (i) that result from a suspension described in clause 10 of the User Agreement; (ii) caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including any force majeure event or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of the Priava Service; (iii) that result from any actions or inactions of you or any third party; (iv) that result from your equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within our direct control); (v) that result from failures of individual instances not attributable to Unavailability; or (vi) arising from our suspension and termination of your right to use the Priava Service in accordance with the User Agreement. If availability is impacted by factors other than those explicitly listed in this Service Level Agreement or the User Agreement, we may issue a Service Credit considering such factors in our sole discretion.
