ATTACHMENT A TO TEALIUM SERVICE TERMS
Service Level Agreement
Service Commitment. 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 monthly billing cycle (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.
Definitions. “Monthly Uptime Percentage” means the percentage of available time within a given calendar month associated with Delivery Network serving of Tealium Libraries.
A “Service Credit” is a dollar credit, calculated as set forth below, that Tealium may credit towards future Tealium invoices to Customer.
Service Credits. Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges paid by Customer to Tealium for the billing cycle in which the error occurred in accordance with the schedule below.
Tealium will apply any Service Credits only against future Tealium payments otherwise due from Customer. Service Credits will not entitle Customer to any refund or other payment from Tealium. Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other Customer account. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, 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 (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.
Service Credit Percentage of 10% for Monthly Uptime Percentage equal or greater than 99% but less than 99.9%.
Service Credit Percentage of 25% for Monthly Uptime Percentage of less than 99%.
Credit Request and Payment Procedures. To receive a Service Credit, Customer must submit a request by sending an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be eligible, the credit request must (i) include the list of Tealium Libraries that did not meet Service Commitment; (ii) include, in the body of the e-mail, the dates and times of each incident that Customer claims to have experienced; (iii) include Customer’s server request logs that document the errors and corroborate Customer’s claimed outage (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks); and (iv) be received by Tealium within ten (10) business days after the end of the billing cycle in which the errors occurred. If the Monthly Uptime Percentage applicable to the month of such request is confirmed by Tealium and is less than 99.9%, then Tealium will issue the Service Credit to Customer within one billing cycle following the month in which the error occurred. Customer’s failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify Customer from receiving a Service Credit.
SLA Exclusions. The Service Commitment does not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of Customer account, or any other Delivery Network performance issues: (i) caused by factors outside of Tealium’s reasonable control, including any force majeure event or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of Delivery Network; (ii) that result from any actions or inactions of Customer or any third party; (iii) that result from Customer’s equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within Tealium’s direct control); or (iv) arising from the suspension and termination of Customer’s right to use Delivery Network in accordance with the Agreement.
