In such event, PagerTree shall notify Customer not less than sixty (60) days prior to the effective date of any such amendment and Customer’s continued use of the Service following the effective date of any such amendment may be relied upon by PagerTree as Customer’s consent to any such amendment.

Neither party shall be responsible for delays or performance failures that are caused from events that are beyond their reasonable control and without its fault or negligence, including, without limitation, acts of God, nature, riots, acts of war, fire or earthquake.

Exhibit A: PagerTree Service Level Agreement

 

This PagerTree Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) is a policy governing the use of PagerTree under the terms of the PagerTree Subscription Agreement (the “Agreement”) between PagerTree, LLC (“PagerTree”) and the Customer named on the applicable Order (“Customer”). This SLA applies separately to each account using the Services. Unless otherwise provided herein, this SLA is subject to the terms of the Agreement and capitalized terms will have the meaning specified in the Agreement. PagerTree reserves the right to change the terms of this SLA in accordance with the Agreement.

 

Definitions

 

Service(s)” refers to hosted alert & notifications management and on-call scheduling services provided by PagerTree as a Software as a Service. The Service provides email and API interfaces to receive alerts from customer systems, processes received alerts using policies defined by customers, and sends alert notifications to the users using email, SMS, phone, and iOS & Android push notifications.

Monthly Uptime Percentage” is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which PagerTree was in the state of “unavailable”. Monthly Uptime Percentage measurements exclude downtime resulting directly or indirectly from any PagerTree SLA Exclusions (defined below).

Unavailable” or “Unavailability” means that PagerTree was not able to process incoming alerts and send notifications to users within five (5) minutes of receiving the alerts, according to the policies and notification rules defined by Customer.

A “Service Credit” is a dollar credit, calculated as set forth below, that PagerTree may credit back to an eligible account. Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges paid by Customer as subscription fees (excluding overage charges).

 

Service Commitment

 

PagerTree will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage (defined below) of at least 99.9%, in each case during any month of service (the “Service Commitment”). In the event PagerTree does not meet the Service Commitment, Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below.

 

Measurement

 

PagerTree uses a proprietary system that consists of both internal and 3rd party monitoring services to measure whether the Services are available and Customer agrees that this system will be the sole basis for resolution of any dispute that may arise between Customer and PagerTree regarding this SLA.

 

  • Monthly Uptime less than 99.9% but equal to or greater than 99.0%,  5% Service Credit
  • Monthly Uptime less than 99.0% but equal to or greater than 97.0%,  10% Service Credit
  • Monthly Uptime less than 97.0%, 20% Service Credit

 

PagerTree will apply any Service Credits only against future PagerTree payments otherwise due by Customer. At PagerTree’s discretion, PagerTree may issue the Service Credit to the credit card Customer used to pay for the billing cycle in which the Unavailability occurred. Service Credits will not entitle Customer to any refund or other payment from PagerTree. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable month is greater than one dollar ($1 USD). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability, non-performance, or other failure by PagerTree to provide the Services is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.

 

Support Response Time Commitment

 

PagerTree shall use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to requests from Customer regarding errors with the Service made between 9 am and 5 pm PST within the following time frames following confirmed receipt by PagerTree of an error support request from Customer, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide a workaround and/or permanent fix with a level of effort commensurate with the Severity Level of the error.

To receive a Service Credit, Customer must submit a claim by emailing PagerTree Support at support@pagertree.com. To be eligible, the credit request must be received by PagerTree by the end of the second billing cycle after which the incident occurred and must include the dates and times of each Unavailability incident that Customer is claiming.

If the Monthly Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by PagerTree and is less than the Service Commitment, then PagerTree will issue the Service Credit to Customer within one billing cycle following the month in which the Customer request is confirmed by PagerTree. Customer’s failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify Customer from receiving a Service Credit.

 

PagerTree SLA Exclusions

 

The Service Commitment does not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of the Services: (i) that result from a suspension of the Agreement; (ii) caused by factors outside of PagerTree’s reasonable control, including any force majeure event; (iii) that result from Customer’s acts or omissions, equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within PagerTree’s direct control); (iv) arising from PagerTree’s suspension and termination of Customer’s right to use the Services in accordance with the Agreement, and (v) routine scheduled maintenance; (collectively, the “PagerTree SLA Exclusions”). If availability is impacted by factors other than those used in PagerTree’s Monthly Uptime Percentage calculation, then PagerTree may still issue a Service Credit considering such factors at PagerTree’s discretion.
