A) Uptime Guarantee: ALCHosting offers a Service uptime guarantee to its Customers. In the event of qualifying Service Downtime, Customer’s account will be credited in accordance with ALCHosting’s Service Level Agreement, as expressed herein. In the event of a dispute regarding downtime, it is Customer’s duty to demonstrate to ALCHosting’s satisfaction, in ALCHosting’s sole discretion, that the provisions of this guarantee have been broken. Customer acknowledges and agrees that slow network speed is not equivalent to downtime and is not subject to the ALCHosting Service Level Agreement. Customer agrees that the Service Level Agreement does not apply to certain exemptions, as expressed herein.
B) Downtime Credits: You may contact ALCHosting and request a credit for “Downtime” in accordance with the following parameters:
Uptime Guarantee is triggered once Customer has experienced at least ten (10) minutes of Service downtime. Only downtime experienced in the continuous period thereafter will become creditable as “Downtime,” as defined and measured in this Agreement;
Once the Uptime Guarantee is triggered, Customer’s Downtime will be measured in weeks, to be rounded up to the nearest whole number.
Customer’s account will be credited for qualifying Downtime, such credit to be put towards the purchase of future ALCHosting Services. Credits cannot be redeemed for cash, and are exclusive of any applicable taxes. Service Level Agreement, and any transactions connected therewith, are subject to ALCHosting’s Billing & Fees policies.
