Service Level Availability (SLA)

Outstanding Availability

Our goal is to provide 24×7 availability of the Services, and we offer subscription credits for availability below 99.8%. You can receive a credit of 10% of your subscription fees for the month in which the outage event(s) occurred for every percentage point that Service Availability1 falls below 99.8%, up to a maximum of 50% of the applicable subscription fees for that month. To receive a credit, you must submit a request to us within 15 days after the month in which the Service Availability1 outage event(s) occurred. Any credit will be applied against subsequent monthly subscription fees due to us or, at our option, refunded to you.

1Service Availability is computed as follows:

System: the Brightpearl application service, accessible over the network via web protocols, up to and including Brightpearl’s internet connection. Problems outside Brightpearl’s infrastructure, such as those of ISPs, third-party infrastructure providers, Internet backbone or customer’s network, are excluded. Non-production sites or tenants such as, for example, development, implementation, preview and training sites, sandboxes, trials, and beta services are excluded. Problems caused by software running on customers’ computers are also excluded.

System Outage Hours: Total time during a given month in which the System is unavailable, excluding scheduled maintenance time.

Total Hours: Number of hours contained in a given month, excluding scheduled maintenance time.
