This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) is a supplement to, and made a part of, the commercial services agreement and/or terms between User Interviews, Inc. (“UI”) and Customer (the “Agreement”). In the event of an express conflict between the terms of the Agreement and the terms of this SLA, the terms of this SLA control. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meaning set forth in the Agreement.
Subject to the terms and conditions of the Agreement, User Interviews will provide the following support for the Services during the applicable Subscription Period. The remedies set forth herein are Customer’s sole and exclusive remedies in respect of any default by UI under this SLA.
1. Updates. UI will provide core bug fixes for the Services which are made generally commercially available to its customers at no additional charge in the next chronological minor release of the platform.
2. Technical Support. All requests for technical support must be submitted to UI via email to email@example.com. UI will respond to such requests by email within twenty-four (24) Business Hours. If a technical issue renders the Services wholly unavailable (a “Critical Issue”), UI will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the problem or implement a workaround as soon as practicable. All other issues and problems will be corrected in the next chronological minor release of the platform. A “Business Day” means any calendar day other than Saturday, Sunday or a day on which commercial banks in the United States are authorized or required to be closed. “Business Hours” shall be from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM U.S. Eastern Time, on Business Days.
3. Uptime. UI will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available for use by Customer free of any Critical Issues 99% of the time, measured monthly (“Uptime Commitment”). Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, UI will not be responsible for providing support services for, and the Uptime Commitment excludes: (i) planned downtime of which UI provides Customer at least twenty-four (24) hours’ advance notice; (ii) downtime arising from a Force Majeure Event; (iii) downtime arising from acts or omissions of Customer or its employees, contractors, or agents, including without limitation any modifications to the Services made by or for Customer (other than by UI or its subcontractors) and any improper use of the Services; or (iv) downtime arising from the combination, operation or use of the Services with hardware, software, products, data or other materials not provided by UI.
4. Service Credits. In the event of a Critical Issue, Customer must notify UI via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and UI will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the problem or implement a workaround as soon as practicable. If UI does not meet the Uptime Commitment and Customer has provided the required notice to UI, Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Credit for the affected month, measured as a percentage discount off of the next subscription invoice as set forth below. In the event there are no new invoices to be issued, UI will issue a partial refund against the subscription invoice that covered the applicable month for which a Service Credit is claimed. To apply for a Service Credit under this SLA, Customer must submit a request to email@example.com within 30 days of the end of the month for which a Service Credit is claimed. The request must include the dates and times of the downtime for which Service Credit is being requested and any additional documentation that demonstrates the claimed downtime. The foregoing shall be UI’s sole and exclusive obligation and Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy in the event that UI does not meet the Uptime Commitment.
Uptime < 90.0%..........100% of monthly invoice
90.0% ≤ Uptime < 95.0%..........10% of monthly invoice
95.0% ≤ Uptime < 99.0%..........5% of monthly invoice

*If Customer is invoiced on a quarterly basis, the amount subject to the Service Credit calculation for the affected month will be 1/3 of the total invoice value. If Customer is invoiced on an annual basis, the amount subject to the Service Credit calculation for the affected month will be 1/12 of the total invoice value.
