SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT (SLA)

The Service is provided "as is" as standardized service; the right to use is not conditional or tied to a specific version or functionality at a certain time, but allows access to and use of the Service as is at all times.

COMPANY reserves the right to make improvements, add, modify or remove functionality, or correct any errors or defects in the Service at its sole discretion, without any obligation or liability resulting from such act or defects. COMPANY will however not remove functionality which in COMPANY’s reasonable opinion must be considered as core functionalities for a service such as the Service.

COMPANY and the Customer agree that the Service will not always be completely free of errors and that the improvement of the Service is a continuous process. The Customer is also aware that successful use of the Service is dependent on equipment and factors (such as sufficient internet connection) that the Customer has the responsibility for. COMPANY is not liable for the discontinuance or disruption of the operation of the Service caused by the Internet or any third party service the Customer needs in order to access the Service, including operating systems etc.

COMPANY is available on the following browsers:

Third party software and operating system updates etc. may influence the usability of the Service, and COMPANY has no responsibility in this regard. COMPANY will however always use best efforts to accommodate and develop the Service for updates etc. on supported operating systems.

COMPANY is only responsible for the functioning of the Service as such, and undertakes the following obligations regarding error handling with regards to the Service:

Level

Category

Description

Repair time

A

Notice shall be given by written e-mail to[= [email protected]] or via COMPANY’s online chat channel, available both within the Service and on[= https://www.COMPANY.com.]

If COMPANY has not succeeded in curing a category A or B error within the repair time stated, the Customer is entitled to a period of free extension of the service, and must claim such free extensions within 90 days after the error notification was sent to COMPANY. The free extension for failing to meet the repair time for category A errors shall be 14 days. For category B errors the free extension shall be 4 days.
