Service Level Agreement (SLA)
Last Modified: July 2019
This Ethnio Service Level Agreement ("SLA") between Ethnio, Inc. (“Ethnio”, "us" or "we") and users of the Ethnio Services ("you") governs the provision of the Software Service by Ethnio to you pursuant to the Terms of Service (the "Terms").
1. Ethnio Commitment: 99.95%
Ethnio will maintain monthly uptime (“Availability”) of 99.95%, excluding scheduled downtime (of which Ethnio will give advance notice and which Ethnio will schedule during the weekend hours from 6:00 p.m. PT Friday to 3:00 a.m. PT Monday), not to exceed twenty-four (24) hours in any calendar month. Uptime can be verified independently at stats.ethn.io which runs on a separate monitoring host.
Ethnio will maintain at least an average server response time for screeners, the main object in Ethnio, or 15ms or less. This time only shows how fast Ethnio servers process requests and give responses. Transfer time to and from user servers can differ depending on just about a million variables.
2. Website Response Measure
3. Failure to Achieve Availability Standards
If Availability falls below the above standard during any calendar month, you may elect to receive a credit from Ethnio against license fees and payments due for the months following any month in which Availability does not meet the standard, as liquidated damages and not as a penalty, an amount equal to fifteen percent (15%) of the license fees and payments due to Ethnio from users for that month. If Availability falls below the above standard for any three months during a six-month period, Customer may terminate the Agreement. This applies to license fees and no other types of fees.
3.1 Sole Remedy
Unless otherwise provided in the Terms, your sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability, non-performance, or other failure by Ethnio to provide the Services is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.
