Software as a Service (SAAS) Service Level Agreement
This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) shall apply to ShowPlanr Platform and corresponding services (collectively, the “Services”) during the Term of the Customer’s Subscription for such Services as set forth in the applicable Subscription Terms. Capitalised terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Agreement.
a. Formula. The Service will, subject to the exceptions listed below, be available 99% of the time during each calendar month from the time that the Services go-live in Customer’s production environment (referred to herein as the “Availability Commitment”). The availability of the Service for a given month will be calculated according to the following formula (referred to herein as the “Availability):
Total minutes in the month = TMM
Total minutes in the month the Service is unavailable = TMU
((TMM-TMU) X 100)/TMM
b. For purposes of this calculation, the Service will be deemed to be unavailable (referred to herein as “Unavailable”) only (i) if the Service does not respond to HTTP requests issued by ShowPlanr’s monitoring software, or (ii) for the duration of a Severity-1 Error as defined in Schedule B to the Agreement. Further, the Service will not be deemed Unavailable for any downtime or outages excluded from such calculation by reason of the exceptions set forth in Section 2 of this SLA. ShowPlanr’s records and data will be the basis for all SLA calculations and determinations.
c. Maintenance performed at Customer’s request outside of the normally scheduled maintenance will not be considered an outage.
a. The Service will not be considered to be Unavailable for any outage that results from any maintenance performed by ShowPlanr (i) of which Customer is notified at least 24 hours in advance; (ii) during Customer’s implementation period; (iii) during ShowPlanr’s then-current standard maintenance windows (collectively referred to herein as “Scheduled Maintenance”); or (iv) as a result of Customer’s request outside of the normally scheduled maintenance.
b. The Service will not be considered Unavailable for any outage due to (i) Customer's Data or application programming, acts or omissions of Customer or its agents, failures of equipment or facilities provided by Customer, network unavailability or bandwidth limitations outside of the ShowPlanr network; (ii) issues arising from bugs or other problems in the software, firmware or hardware of ShowPlanr’s suppliers; or (iii) force majeure events. The configuration being provided under this SLA is based on assumptions made by Customer and based on information provided by Customer. As a result, ShowPlanr will not be responsible, under this SLA or otherwise, for any outages or performance issues caused by inaccuracies in these assumptions, including equipment and software failures or performance problems caused by traffic volume or the number of concurrent user sessions.
Subject to the exceptions provided for in this SLA, Customer will have the rights set forth below.
a. If the total Availability (as calculated in Section 1 above) for a given month is less than the Availability Commitment, Customer will receive one Service Credit. In addition, for the first 100 minute increment by which the allowable Unavailability is exceeded, Customer will receive one-half (1/2) of a Service Credit. Thereafter, for each additional 100-minute increment by which the allowable outage is exceeded, Customer will receive one (1) additional Service Credit.
b. For purposes of this SLA, a Service Credit will be deemed to be an amount equal to the pro-rata fee for one (1) day of the Subscription to the affected Service (herein referred to as “Service Credit”). The total Service Credits for a given month will, in no event, exceed an amount equal to fifty percent (50%) of the then-current pro-rata monthly fee for the applicable Subscription to use the affected Service. Service Credits will be applied to extend the Term of the applicable Subscription.
c. Remedies will not accrue (i.e., no Service Credits will be issued and an outage will not be considered unavailability for purposes of this SLA) if Customer is not current in its payment obligations.
d. Upon written request from Customer, ShowPlanr shall promptly provide a report specifying the level of Unavailability and Service Credits due (if any) for the requested month. To receive Service Credits, Customer must submit such request within 90 days after the end of the month in which the Service was Unavailable.

SUPPORT FOR SHOWPLANR SAAS OFFERINGS
This Support Guide sets forth the terms, conditions, and procedures under which maintenance and support ("Support") is offered for ShowPlanr Productivity Suite Platform and corresponding services (collectively, the “Services”), during the Term of the Customer’s Subscription for such Services as set forth in the applicable Subscription Order Form. Capitalised terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Agreement.
Scope. Support will consist of: (i) email to team@ShowPlanr.com ; (ii) correction of errors to keep the Services in conformance with the user Documentation included in the Services; and (iii) updated versions of the Services provided by ShowPlanr to its general customer base of subscribers at no additional charge. Support will not include: (i) set-up, installation, or configuration of hardware and software required for the Customer to access the Service; or (ii) consultation, error correction, or research with respect to Customer-created documents and information.
Representative. The Representative designated in the Subscription Order Form will be ShowPlanr’s contact for communicating with ShowPlanr concerning Support, or making any other request or providing any notice. Customer may change the Representative upon written notice to ShowPlanr.
- CUSTOMER SUPPORT
Technical Support. Customer will have access to ShowPlanr’s technical support personnel ("Technical Support") as follows:
Hours: Monday - Friday, 11:00 am to 3:00 pm UK time
Communications with Technical Support may be via e-mail. ShowPlanr provides a single entry point of contact that routes requests/problems to the appropriate Technical Support.
- SEVERITY LEVELS.
Technical Support shall prioritize problems/requests according to the severity levels set forth below. ShowPlanr will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond according to the Response Specifications set forth below with respect to the Severity Level assigned to the problem:
Severity 1 – Critical
The Services suffer an error or issue in a production down situation which cannot be reasonably circumvented and which so substantially impairs the performance of the Services or any components of the Services, which are critical to the Customer’s business, as to effectively render them unusable. ShowPlanr will acknowledge any such reported error or issue within two (2) hours and ShowPlanr will work twenty-four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week to identify the error and provide an applicable workaround or fix.
Severity 2 – Serious
The Services suffer an error or issue, which cannot be reasonably circumvented, and which substantially impairs the use of one or more portions or features of the Services required by Customer to perform necessary business functions but does not effectively render the Services unusable as a whole. ShowPlanr will acknowledge any such reported error or issue within six (6) hours and, if Customer is using the Services in production, will work continually within normal business hours to identify the error and provide an applicable workaround or fix.
Severity 3 – Moderate
The Services suffer a low impact error or issue (which is not of Severity 1 or Severity 2) which impairs the use of the features of the Services, but the reported error or issue can be reasonably circumvented. ShowPlanr will acknowledge any such reported error or issue within twelve (12) hours and will work within normal business hours to identify the error and provide an applicable workaround or fix.
Severity 4 – Minor
The Services do not incur an error and allow Customer to function normal business operations; however, Customer inquiries about existing Documentation, training, or standard use of the Services. ShowPlanr will acknowledge any such inquiry within twenty-four (24) hours and will work within normal business hours to address and resolve Customer’s inquiry.
* Response times are measured from the time Customer has spoken with or left a voicemail for a ShowPlanr Customer support contact specifying the nature of the Customer’s problem.
The severity level of the problems reported by Customer shall be reasonably determined by ShowPlanr. ShowPlanr will resolve each reported error or issue with the Services by using commercially reasonable efforts to provide: (i) a patch or fix as necessary; or (ii) a reasonable workaround for the error or issue; or, if either (i) or (ii) are not reasonably practicable, a specific action plan regarding how ShowPlanr intends to address the reported error or issue and an estimate on how long it may take to correct or workaround the error or issue. Customer agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to assist and provide information to ShowPlanr as required to resolve errors or issues with the Services reported by Customer. In the event ShowPlanr fails to meet its obligations under this Section, ShowPlanr will provide a root cause analysis including definition, corrections and process improvement plan. If a permanent repair cannot be made, a temporary resolution (bypass and recovery) will be implemented to the extent possible.
- SHOWPLANR ISSUES.
Support covers any issue or problem that is the result of a verifiable, replicable error (ShowPlanr will use all reasonable means to verify and replicate) in the Services ("Verifiable ShowPlanr Issue"). An error will be a Verifiable ShowPlanr Issue if it constitutes a material failure by the Services to function in accordance with the Documentation included in the Services. If Technical Support reasonably determines that Customer’s problem is not caused by ShowPlanr or its systems, equipment, or software, ShowPlanr is not obligated to provide support under this Agreement. Nevertheless, ShowPlanr will, if possible, offer suggestions as to how Customer can remedy the problem. If ShowPlanr determines that the issue was not the result of a Verifiable ShowPlanr Issue, ShowPlanr may offer to provide for out of scope professional services at ShowPlanr’s then current rates upon its standard terms to address the issue.
- ADDITIONAL SUPPORT.
Technical Support may also determine that Customer’s request is a request for "Additional Support." Additional Support is any assistance not covered above. Examples of Additional Support include substantive questions regarding data or results, requests for Services customization, specialized training regarding use of the Services, custom documentation, and consulting. If ShowPlanr believes that it can appropriately and effectively provide the requested services, it will offer do so at its then-current rates upon its standard terms.
- CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITIES.
Customer’s designated representative shall initiate all requests for Support. The representative must be trained, qualified and authorised to communicate all necessary information, perform diagnostic testing under the direction of the ShowPlanr service representative and be available during the performance of any Support if required.
