No SLA commitment is provided for free, proof-of-concept or unpaid trial services of GreyMatter. In addition, the SLA commitment (and any associated SLA Credit) does not apply to any downtime, suspension or termination of GreyMatter that results from:

  • Account suspension or termination due to Customer’s breach of the terms of an Order.
  • Routine scheduled maintenance performed by ReliaQuest or any unscheduled, emergency maintenance for an emergency caused by factors outside ReliaQuest’s reasonable control.
  • Force majeure events such as acts of God, acts of government, pandemic response, flood, fire, earthquake, civil unrest, and acts of terror.
  • Other customer related issues, including but not limited to, any Customer alterations or changes to Customer’s environment (including changes to customer IP addresses), Customer content or third-party content, or internet service provider failures or delays.
  • Customer’s equipment, software, any other technology used or relied upon by Customer, or any other thirdparty equipment, software or technology used by Customer or ReliaQuest that is required for access or use of GreyMatter, including any Third-Party Software or services.

Service Credit Claims

To receive an SLA Credit, a Customer must file a claim for such SLA Credit within five (5) days following the end of the calendar quarter in which the SLA commitment was not met for GreyMatter, by notifying ReliaQuest in writing with a complete description of the downtime, how the Customer was adversely affected, and for how long.
