Services and Service Levels; Customer Assistance
- Services and Service Levels. During each applicable Service Term (as such term may defined in one or more Service Orders executed by the Parties), Tealium will provide the Services to Customer.

Customer will use the Services only for its own internal business operations and not for the operation of a service bureau.
- Obligations. Each party agrees: that it will (a) hold the other party’s Confidential Information in confidence using the same standard of care as it uses to protect its own confidential information of a similar nature, but in no event less than reasonable care; (b) not disclose the Confidential Information of the other to any third party without the other’s prior written consent, except as expressly permitted under this MSA; (c) limit access to the other’s Confidential Information to those of its employees or agents having a need to know who are bound by confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those set forth herein; and (d) use the other party’s Confidential Information solely to perform its obligations or receive its benefits under this MSA. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may make disclosures as required or requested by a court of law or any governmental entity or agency, including but not limited to disclosures required by the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States or any similar authority in any other country, provided that, to the extent permitted under applicable law, such party provides the other with reasonable prior notice to enable such party to seek confidential treatment of such information; and either party may disclose the terms and conditions of this MSA solely to potential investors, acquisition partners and its legal counsel and accountants in connection with a proposed financing or acquisition, provided that each such third party is bound by confidentiality obligations at least as restrictive as those set forth herein.

This Section 7 will not preclude a receiving party from using any of its general knowledge, skills and experience, as well as any ideas, concepts, know-how and techniques developed as part of its ordinary and customary business, provided such use is without reference to or use of the disclosing party’s Confidential Information.
- Injunctive Relief. Each party acknowledges that a breach or threatened breach of this Section 8 would cause irreparable harm to the non-breaching party, the extent of which would be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, each party agrees that, in addition to any other remedies to which a party may be legally entitled, the non-breaching party will have the right to seek immediate injunctive or other equitable relief in the event of a breach of this Section 7 by the other party or any of its employees or agents. Upon termination of this MSA, each party will promptly either return or destroy all Confidential Information of the other party .

Tealium, through its agreement with Delivery Network will use commercially reasonable efforts to make Delivery Network servers available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage (defined below) of at least 99.9% during any month (the “Service Commitment”). In the event Delivery Network does not meet the Service Commitment, Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below.

3. Service Credits.
Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the Monthly Subscription Amount for the month in which the Service Commitment was not met in accordance with the schedule below. Tealium will apply any Service Credits only against future payments. If Customer has prepaid in full for all Services under the Agreement, Customer will be entitled to a refund of the Service Credit amount. Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability or non-performance of Delivery Network or other failure by Delivery Network to provide the Service Commitment is the receipt of a Service Credit in accordance with the terms of this SLA. Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other Customer account.
- If the Monthly Uptime Percentage is less than 99.9% but equal to or greater than 99%, then the Service Credit will equal 10% of the Monthly Subscription Amount.
- If the Monthly Uptime Percentage is less than 99%, then the Service Credit will equal 25% of the Monthly Subscription Amount

5. SLA Exclusions.
