Our Service Levels

1. Definitions

  • “Downtime” is defined as any period when end users are unable to read or write any service data for which they have appropriate permission.
  • “Scheduled Downtime” refers to planned maintenance windows during which services may be temporarily unavailable.
  • “Incident” is defined as either a any single event, or a set of events, that result in Downtime. 
  • “User Minutes” represents the total number of minutes in a month, excluding all Scheduled Downtime, multiplied by the total number of users.

2. Availability

  • Our aim is to ensure that all user services provided are available with a target uptime of 99.9% excluding scheduled downtime.
  • Monthly uptime is calculated using the formula: 
    (Downtime user minutes ÷ User minutes) * 100. 
    Downtime is measured in user minutes, which is the sum of the length (in minutes) of each Incident that occurs during that month multiplied by the number of users impacted by that Incident. 

3. Scheduled Downtime

  • We will publish notice or notify you at least ten (10) days prior to the commencement of any scheduled downtime.
