If SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ fails to meet it's 99.9% uptime guarantee, and it is not due to one of the exceptions below, credits will be made available to each client, upon request, on a case by case basis. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ will credit a full month's service. Details on how credit amounts are calculated can be found below.

Connectivity

SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting's™ goal is to make the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network available to Client free of outages for 99.9% of the time. An "outage" is defined as an instance in which Client is unable to transmit and receive IP packets due to a SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ service failure for more than 15 consecutive minutes, excluding service failures relating to SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting's™ scheduled maintenance and upgrades. The SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network does not include client premises equipment or any Telco access facilities connecting Client's premises to such infrastructure. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting's™ goal is to keep Average Round-Trip Latency on the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network to 85 milliseconds or less. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ defines "Average Round-Trip Latency", with respect to a given month, as the average time required for round-trip packet transfers between the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network and major US backbone peering points during such month, as measured by SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting's™ goal is to keep Average Packet Loss on the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network to 1% or less. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ defines "Average Packet Loss", with respect to a given month, as the average percentage of IP packets transmitted on the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network during such month that are not successfully delivered, as measured by SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™.

Measurement

SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ will periodically (on average every 10 minutes) monitor SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network and server availability using software and hardware components capable of measuring application traffic and responses. Client acknowledges that that such measurements may not measure the exact path traversed by Client's internet connection, and that such measurements constitute measurements across the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network but not other networks to which Client may connect. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ reserves the right to periodically change the measurement points and methodologies it uses without notice to Client. Full network and server reporting will be posted to a location designated by SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ and made available to Client.

Hardware Failure

SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ stands behind all equipment on our network. Faulty hardware is rare, but cannot be predicted nor avoided. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ utilizes only name brand hardware of the highest quality and perfomance. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ will replace all faulty hardware affecting performance levels of equipment within 12 hours, which includes hardware issues that cause server crashes or speed issues. Hardware failure resulting in complete network/server outage/downtime will be corrected within two hours of problem identification. Router failure is an exception to this SLA guarantee, and may require on-site Cisco™ engineers or backbone provider emergency personnel to correct the problem. Router failure is governed by current SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ contracts with Cisco™ and backbone providers in regard to the emergency repair service in case of such an issue. SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ will replace all faulty hardware on dedicated servers (rented or leased servers), at no charge to the Client, with an unlimited free replacement policy. This includes parts ordered as upgrades.

General

SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting Inc reserves the right to change or modify this SLA to benefit the Client, and will post changes to location currently housing this SLA at time of modification, which will be made available to Client. Except as set forth in this SLA, SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ makes no claims regarding the availability or performance of the SocialPoint24 - Website Hosting™ network or servers. Specific terms/points of this SLA may be adjusted on a case by case basis by the specific Service Agreement signed/agreed by client. In case of difference terms/points in SLA and Service Agreement, the Service Agreement terms/points prevail over this general SLA policy. The Service Agreement signed/agreed by client, is above and beyond this SLA, and Service Agreement terms are in effect, including, but not limited to, limitations of liability.
