SCHEDULE A – SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT

I. Monthly Uptime

Monthly Uptime Percentage
Service Level: Snaile will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Snaile Cloud system available for use by the Customer during a calendar month 99% of the time.
Measurement: Monthly Uptime Percentage = ((TCM – UM – EM)/(TCM – EM))*100
Where:
(a)) TCM is the total number of minutes in the calendar month,
(b) UM is the total number of minutes in the calendar month during which the Snaile Cloud system is unavailable for use by Customer other than as a result of scheduled maintenance, repairs or upgrades or an exclusion event, and
(c) EM is the total number of minutes in the calendar month during which the Services are unavailable for use by Customer as a result of scheduled maintenance, repairs or upgrades or an exclusion.
Remedy: If the Monthly Uptime Percentage is less than 99%: a service credit of 5%.

i) Service Credit Request Procedures

To receive a service credit, Customer must submit a claim by emailing support@snaile.com. To be eligible, the service credit claim must be received by Snaile by the end of the second calendar month following the calendar month for which the claim is made and must include (a) the words “SLA Credit Request” in the subject line, and (b) the dates and times of each claimed incident of a failure to meet a service level. Customer may also be required by Snaile to provide substantiating documentation.

If a failure to meet a service level is confirmed by Snaile, Snaile will issue any applicable service credit to Customer within one billing cycle following the month in which Customer’s claim is confirmed by Snaile. Customer’s failure to provide the claim and other information as reasonably required above will disqualify Customer from receiving a service credit.

ii) Service Credits

If fees are payable by Customer for a period that is longer than a calendar month, then those fees will be prorated by Snaile, acting reasonably, before the calculation of any applicable service credit. Snaile will apply any service credits only against future payments otherwise due from Customer. Service credits will not entitle Customer to any refund or other payment from Snaile. Service credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account. Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability, non-performance, or other failure by Snaile in connection with a failure to provide the services is a service credit (if eligible).

“Incident” means a failure of Snaile Cloud to perform materially in accordance with the applicable documentation and this Agreement. Multiple support tickets for a single unique underlying issue are considered, in aggregate, to be one Incident.

ii) Reporting and Resolving Incidents

Customer may report Incidents by email to support@snaile.com. Snaile will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly respond to each reported of an Incident and will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly resolve each reported Incident. Actual resolution time will depend on the nature of the Incident and the nature of the resolution. A resolution may consist of a fix, workaround or other solution. Support is available only in English..

Snaile will provide technical support and repair services during Business Hours unless otherwise agreed to by Snaile and Customer.

Snaile must be able to reproduce errors in order to resolve them.
