7. SERVICE GUARANTEES
A. Uptime Calculation
"Maximum Available Minutes" is the total accumulated minutes during the Applicable Period excluding Scheduled Maintenance Windows. Maximum Available Minutes is measured from when a User has been set up to when the same user is deleted.
"Scheduled Maintenance Window" refers to the pre-announced period of time during which a Service off-line for maintenance or upgrade purposes. The availability calculation excludes up to 4 annual schedule maintenance windows of up to 24h each. Scheduled maintenance will be announced at least 5 working days prior to the start of the window. Patton will schedule maintenance as far as possible in off-business hours (GMT nights, week-ends).
"Downtime" is the total accumulated minutes that are part of Maximum Available Minutes that have no User Connectivity.
"Uptime Percentage" for the Service is calculated as Maximum Available Minutes less Downtime divided by Maximum Available Minutes in the Applicable Period. Uptime Percentage is represented by the following formula:
Uptime % = (Maximum Available Minutes-Downtime) / Maximum Available Minutes X 100
The following Service Levels and corresponding Service Credits are applicable to End User's use of the Service:
|Monthly Uptime Percentage
C. Service Credits
If we do not achieve the Availability as described in this SLA, then you may be eligible for a credit towards a portion of your service fees.
Service Credits are your sole and exclusive remedy for any performance or availability issues for any Service under this SLA. You may not unilaterally offset your Applicable Service Fees for any performance or availability issues.
Service Credits apply only to fees paid for the Service for which a Service Level has not been met. The Service Credits awarded in any Applicable Period will not, under any circumstance, exceed your Applicable Service Fees.
If you purchased the Service from a reseller, you will receive a service credit directly from your reseller and the reseller will receive a Service Credit directly from us. The Service Credit will be based on the estimated retail price for the applicable Service, as determined by us in our reasonable discretion.

If we determine that a Service Credit is owed to you, we will apply the Service Credit to your Applicable Service Fees.
