This Service Level Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the details regarding the level of service and technical support for GPA NETWORK (the "Application") that apply when your account is in good financial standing.

1. Downtime

A.

Downtime does not include (i) problems caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, (ii) problems resulting from any actions or inactions by you or any third party, (iii) problems resulting from your equipment and/or third party equipment not within our sole control, or (iv) network unavailability during scheduled maintenance of our network and/or servers.

In any calendar month, we guarantee that Downtime will not exceed One Unit of Downtime excluding, however, regularly scheduled maintenance. Any regularly scheduled maintenance will be performed during the hours of 12 a.m. and 3 a.m, Pacific Standard Time. We work to ensure the functioning of all network infrastructures through continuous monitoring by our staff.

D. To receive Downtime Credit, you must request such credit by sending an email to support@gpasoftware.com within seven (7) days after the occurrence of Downtime. The aggregate maximum number of Downtime Credits to be issued for any and all instances of Downtime occurring in a single calendar month will not exceed seven (7). Downtime Credits will be applied upon issue of the first invoice following the request for Downtime Credit, unless the Downtime occurs in your final month of service. In such case, a refund for the dollar value of the Downtime Credit will be mailed to you within thirty (30) days of the expiration of your service agreement.
