For the purpose of this SLA, the terms in bold below are defined as follows:

permitted under Section 4.3 in which data stored or transmitted in the FuryBit Cloud

which the Teamplify SaaS Service must be restored once it becomes un-Available.

to avoid unscheduled maintenance in the future. FuryBit reserves the right to schedule

period following successful confirmation by FuryBit of affected SaaS Service metrics.

This SLA shall apply to the SaaS Service for the duration of the contract for SaaS Service.
FurBit provides customers with service availability (uptime) of 99,5%.
FuryBit uses a Amazon CloudWatch service to measure whether the SaaS Service is available.
Availability is calculated based on the following formula:
A = (T - M - D) / (T - M) x 100%
A = Availability
T = Total Monthly Minutes
M = Scheduled Downtime
D = Downtime
Scheduled and Regular Maintenance do not constitute un-Availability and are not included
in the Availability calculation.
FuryBit provides the following recovery attributes:
- Recovery Time Objective (RTO) - 8 hours
- Recovery Point Objective (RPO) - 8 hours
If FuryBit cannot meet the Availability specified in this SLA for reasons for
which it is responsible, FuryBit shall provide customers with a 10x credit note
(Service Level Credit) for every full hour of unAvailability, provided that the customer
complies with the requirements set out in Section 4.5. The credit is calculated from
the time of outage until the SaaS Service is Available again. FuryBit will issue
a credit equal to 10x of the SaaS Service costs per hour. (For example,
where applicable pursuant to this SLA: an unavailability lasting seven (7) hours
would result in credit of seventy (70) hours of free service).
Service Level Credits shall be offset against any claim for loss or damage caused
by the customer.
