Service Level Terms

The Services shall be available 99.9%, measured monthly, excluding holidays and weekends and scheduled maintenance. If Customer requests maintenance during these hours, any uptime or downtime calculation will exclude periods affected by such maintenance. Further, any downtime resulting from outages of third-party connections or utilities or other reasons beyond Tesseract’s control will also be excluded from any such calculation. Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and Tesseract’s entire liability, in connection with Service availability shall be that for each period of downtime lasting longer than three hours. Tesseract will credit Customer 5% of Service fees for each period of 180 or more consecutive minutes of downtime, provided that no more than one such credit will accrue per day. Downtime shall begin to accrue as soon as Customer (with notice to Tesseract) recognizes that downtime is taking place and continues until the availability of the Services is restored. To receive downtime credit, Customer must notify Tesseract’s in writing within 24 hours from the time of downtime, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive downtime credit. Such credits may not be redeemed for cash and shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for one (1) week of Service Fees in anyone (1) calendar month in any event. Tesseract will only apply a credit to the month in which the incident occurred. Tesseract’s blocking of data communications or other Service in accordance with its policies shall not be deemed to be a failure of Tesseract to provide adequate service levels under this Agreement.
