1) Service Level Agreement
Service uptime commitment: For the purpose of measuring hosted service availability, provides the following commitment: Coordinate will provide Customer access to the SaaS production application on a twenty-four hour, seven days a week (24x7) basis at a rate of 95% (“SaaS Services Uptime Metric”). The SaaS Services Uptime Metric commences on the Go Live Date. “The Go Live Date” is the date at which the Customer has initiated a paid service agreement.
2) Measurement method
On a quarterly basis, the SaaS Services Uptime Metric will be measured using the measurable hours in the quarter (total time minus planned downtime, including maintenance, upgrades, etc.) as the denominator. The numerator is the denominator value minus the time of any outages in the quarter (duration of all outages combined) to give the percentage of available uptime (2,090 actual hours available / 2,200 possible available hours = 95% availability). An “outage” is defined as two consecutive monitor failures within a five-minute period, lasting until the condition has cleared.
The SaaS Services Uptime Metric shall not apply to downtime caused by any of the following:
a) Overall Internet congestion, slowdown, or unavailability; b) Unavailability of generic internet services (e.g. DNS servers) due to virus or hacker attacks;c) Force majeure events;
d) Actions or inactions of Customer (unless undertaken at the express direction of Coordinate) or third parties beyond Coordinate’s control; e) A result of Customer equipment or third-party computer hardware, software, or network infrastructure;f) Scheduled SaaS infrastructure maintenance. In addition to scheduled SaaS infrastructure maintenance, upgrades and patches may require downtime in addition to the scheduled maintenance. Coordinate will endeavor to provide advance notice to customers regarding any scheduled downtime.
If Coordinate does not achieve the service levels stated in this Exhibit A, Coordinate will provide Customer upon request with a credit as described below as Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy.
To claim a remedy under this Section, Customer is required to notify Coordinate, via email, within 15 days following Coordinate’s the close of a particular calendar quarter. Such notification must include the dates, times, and conditions regarding the missed uptime metric.
Quarterly SaaS service credits:
- 95%-94% Three (3) day extension of the Service Term, at no cost to Customer
- 94%-93% Five (5) day extension of the Service Term, at no cost to Customer Below
- 93% Ten (10) day extension of the Service Term, at no cost to Customer
SaaS Ratings below 93% for a quarter shall be escalated by both parties to senior leadership levels. The SaaS Service Credits shall be cumulative and extend the initial term of the SaaS agreements as set out in the SaaS agreement at no cost to Customer. Therefore, any renewal of SaaS agreement shall be effective after SaaS Service Credits have been fully utilized. Annual Service Credits shall be capped at thirty (30) days per annum.
