Standard Service Level Agreement
This SLA is an exhibit to the Master Subscription and Services Agreement between Conatus3 and Customer.
Product support is provided by the Conatus3 Talent Management Support Team (“TMST”). Support encompasses technical troubleshooting, functional expertise and instruction on the configuration and use of Conatus3 products, as well as general customer service. Conatus3 recommends that Customer leverage internal support mechanisms and/or the self-service content in the Conatus3 Community (at the link provided below) in addition to the TMST members for the best experience possible.
Capitalized terms have the meanings given to them herein or in the MSA. The term “Talent Management Services” means all software-as-a-service products subscribed to by Customer. The term “Month” means calendar month.
The terms of the Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) are as follows.
(# of Minutes Per Month*) x (99.50%) =#Uptime Minutes Per Month
Service Level Commitments - Conatus3 will acknowledge and respond to all inbound requests as specified in the Priority Support Table below. Resolution times will vary depending on the complexity of the reported problem and/or the nature of the required solution. In some cases, resolution may take longer if:
Conatus3’s standard framework for problem resolution is to categorize and prioritize problem reports in a typical manner, such as “Priority 1”, “Priority 2”, and “Priority 3”. Any production system outage is automatically treated as a high/critical “Priority 1” issue and triggers a 24x7 development and support commitment until resolved. Lower priority issues are ranked based on impact to Customer and issue complexity.
Initial Response: Acknowledgment of receipt of problem reported and assignment of support incident number with estimated time for resolution.
