  6. SERVICE LEVEL TERMS The Services shall be available 99.9%, measured monthly, excluding holidays and weekends and scheduled maintenance. “Downtime” is defined as a period when the Service is unable to be accessed by the customer, as monitored by the Company. If Company performs maintenance during these hours, any Downtime calculation will exclude periods affected by such maintenance. Further, any Downtime resulting from outages of third party connections or utilities, failure of unavailability of Customer’s systems, the Internet, or other reasons beyond Company’s control will also be excluded from any such calculation.

    Customer's sole and exclusive remedy, and Company's entire liability, in connection with Service availability shall be that for any consecutive period of downtime lasting longer than thirty minutes, Company will credit Customer the Service Fees prorated for the 24 hour period in which the downtime occurred. Downtime shall begin to accrue as soon as Customer (with notice to Company) recognizes that downtime is taking place, and continues until the availability of the Services is restored. In order to receive downtime credit, Customer must notify Company 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. Company will apply a credit to the month in which the incident occurred.

    Company’s blocking of data communications or other Service in accordance with its policies shall not be deemed to be a failure of Company to provide adequate service levels under this Agreement.

  7. SUPPORT TERMS Company will provide Technical Support to Customer via in-app live chat and electronic mail on weekdays during the hours of 9:00 am through 5:00 pm Pacific time, with the exclusion of Federal Holidays.
