SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT (SLA)
1. Services Application Availability
Gainsight will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide 99.9% Application Availability measured per month. “Application Availability” means that the subscription Services are available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, excluding any scheduled and unscheduled maintenance time to implement updates, upgrades or other modifications.
Gainsight will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Client at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to any scheduled maintenance to minimize the effect of such maintenance on the subscription Services and as soon as practicable for any unscheduled maintenance or any known and verified unscheduled downtime.
Please reference the following table (Reporting Period = calendar month) which details the credit available to Client in the event the Application Availability falls below the indicated thresholds:
Application Availability Credits
≥ 99.0% in one Reporting Period 0% of 1 month of Subscription fees
≥ 95.0 but < 99.0 % in one Reporting Period 5% of 1 month of Subscription fees
< 95% in one Reporting Period 25 % of 1 month of Subscription fees
Additionally, if Application Availability falls below 95% for 3 consecutive Reporting Periods, Client shall have the right to terminate the Agreement; such right must be exercised within 10 days of the end of such 3 month period or Client shall be deemed to have waived its termination right with respect to that particular 3 month period. Upon effective termination, Gainsight shall refund promptly to Client fees prepaid and unused due to such termination.
Calculation of Application Availability
Application Availability as measured monthly and calculated by subtracting from 100% the total percentage of 1-minute periods during the Reporting Period for which there is no external connectivity and the subscription Services do not service obligatory data requests as required for functionality in accordance with the Agreement subject to any scheduled and unscheduled maintenance time and time for any Exclusions. “Exclusions” means the following: (i) unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Gainsight Software’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of nature, acts of government, emergencies, natural disasters, flood, fire, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems (other than those involving Gainsight employees), or any other force majeure event or factors; (ii) any problems resulting from Client combining or merging the Gainsight Services with any hardware or software not supplied by Gainsight or not identified by Gainsight in writing as
Gainsight PX Terms and Conditions_20190701 9
compatible with the Services; (iii) interruptions or delays in providing the Services resulting from telecommunications or Internet service provider failures; (v) any interruption or unavailability resulting from Client’s use of the Services in an unauthorized or unlawful manner or any interruption resulting from the misuse, improper use, alteration, or damage of the Services; (vi) any problems caused by modifications in any version of the Services not made or authorized by Gainsight in writing; and (vii) any problems resulting from Client’s or any third party’s acts, errors or omissions or any systems not provided by Gainsight.
Request for Credit
Any Client request for a credit that Client is entitled to under this SLA may only be made on a calendar monthly basis and must be submitted in writing within 10 days after the end of the relevant calendar month or shall be deemed to have been waived by Client. For those periods at the end of a Subscription Term that do not coincide with the end of a calendar month, Client must make a claim for a credit within 10 days after the expiration of the Subscription Term or the claim for credit shall be deemed to have been waived by Client. The total of all credits applicable to or accruing in any given Reporting Period shall not exceed 25% of the Subscription fees paid or payable to Gainsight by Client for the Reporting Period.
The right to a credit and/or the right to terminate the Agreement described in this Section 1 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy available to Client in the event of unavailability of the Services as set forth herein. In no circumstance shall the unavailability of the Services be deemed a default under the Agreement or this SLA.
All credit requests will be verified against Gainsight’s system records. Gainsight will make available to Client a monthly record of the Application Availability.
