1.5 Response Times.
1.5.1 If an error or issue is submitted to Us via the contact methods provided for above We shall use all commercially reasonable efforts to comply with the response times set forth below based on the severity level of the particular error or issue.
Severity Definition Level / Response Time
Critical: A Critical Severity issue has a material to critical business impact on Your production system, resulting in Your production system being either down, or functioning at a materially reduced capacity or with materially reduced functionality.
Response time: We will confirm receipt immediately and allocate a qualified Support Manager to diagnose, define a correction plan and to correct the Critical Severity issue as soon as possible with a target resolution of up to one (1) business day. We shall provide periodic updates to You either hourly or as mutually agreed.
Medium: A Medium Severity issue has some business impact on a production system, resulting in some non-material functionality or loss on Your production system. The Services are usable, but does not provide a non-material function in the most convenient or expeditious manner.
Response time: We will confirm receipt and provide an initial response, diagnosis and correction plan by a qualified Support Manager within one (1) business day with a target resolution of fifteen (15) business days. We shall provide periodic updates to You no less than one (1) time per day or as mutually agreed.
Low: A Low Severity issue is for non-production questions including general “how to” questions, issues related to a non-production environment, or feature requests. There is no impact on the quality, performance or functionality on Your production system.
Response time: Low Severity issues are responded to and resolved in the normal course of our Support Team operations. We do not guarantee a resolution time for Low Severity incidents.
1.5.2 In addition to the Response Times we shall utilize our internal reporting and escalation procedures to ensure issues are visible and allocated as applicable to line and executive management including upon initial issue receipt and performance measurement against the target resolution Response Time.
2. Service Levels
2.1 Uptime Guarantee:
2.1.1 The Licensed Services will be available at least 99.5% of the time, as measured on a per minute basis every month, subject to the exclusions set forth below (“Uptime Guarantee”). We will promptly notify You of any known period of unavailability and when the service disruption has ended.
2.1.2 Exclusions: The Uptime Guarantee shall not apply in the event that (i) any equipment (not in the custody or control of Us or our third party hosting provider) malfunctions, including, without limitation, any necessary VPN access, (ii) the failure is caused by a Force Majeure Event, (iii) the failure occurs during a Scheduled Maintenance period (as defined below), (iv) the failure is due to Your failure to upgrade to Our software as new releases, patches, fixes, are introduced, (v) the failure was caused by Your unauthorized use of or a use by You that exceeds the scope of the limited rights granted in the Agreement concerning the Licensed Services, (vi) the failure is caused by interruptions or delays resulting from telecommunication or Internet service provider failures outside of Our network, system and environment and/or (vii) the failure results from Your or any Your third party’s errors or omissions or any system not provided by Us including, any part of the Licensed Services hosted and maintained by You.
2.2 Scheduled Maintenance. Scheduled maintenance is regularly scheduled maintenance of which We provide You with information via our customer portal (“Scheduled Maintenance”). Scheduled Maintenance may either (i) require downtime (“Major Release Scheduled Maintenance”) or (ii) not require downtime (“Minor Release Scheduled Maintenance”). We will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule all Major Release Scheduled Maintenance between the hours of 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time and 4:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Sunday and limit such downtime resulting to up to 30 minutes per downtime. You will be notified via the Capriza Help Center of Major Release Scheduled Maintenance that We reasonably consider will result in downtime greater than one hour at least 72 hours in advance.
2.3 Uptime Credit. In the event We fail to meet the required Uptime Guarantee in a particular month, You shall be entitled to a credit as set forth below (each an “Uptime Credit”) for such month and shall request the Uptime Credit in writing within thirty (30) days of the last day of the month that the Uptime Credit is applicable. Uptime credit shall be applied against the next Renewal of the Licensed Services and shall extend the next Renewal Term beyond the standard minimum of one (1) year using a proportional basis. Any Uptime Credit issued will be calculated as a percentage of the fees for such Subscription for such month and Uptime Credit value will be determined as follows:
Actual Uptime Percentage (%) for Month / Uptime Credit Percentage (%) of Affected Month Licensed Services Fee
99.5% or greater / 0% of Licensed Services Fee
Less than 99.5% but greater than 99% / 5% of Licensed Services Fee
Less than 99% but greater than 98% / 10% of Licensed Services Fee
Less than 98% but greater than 97% / 15% of Licensed Services Fee
