Subject to Section 3 below, in the event that LowcHost fails to provide Customer with the Products and Services purchased by Customer in accordance with the Agreement and such failure results from the complete unavailability of LowcHost Network or the failure of LowcHost Network to pass Customer’s TCP/IP traffic with less than three percent (3%) packet loss and less than 30ms latency across LowcHost Network (other than as specified below, each such event, a “Qualified Network Downtime Event”), LowcHost will issue Customer a Service Credit calculated as follows.
1. A Qualified Network Downtime Event shall start upon Customer’s submission of a written trouble ticket specifying that a Qualified Network Downtime Event has occurred and the details associated with such Qualified Network Downtime Event. All such trouble tickets must be submitted by Customer through LowcHost’s Technical Support e-mail (support@LowcHost.com) or through LowcHost’s technical support department and are ‘subject to confirmation by LowcHost prior to qualifying for any Service Credit.

NOTWITHSTANDING ANYTHING IN THE AGREEMENT TO THE CONTRARY, THE MAXIMUM TOTAL SERVICE CREDITS TO WHICH CUSTOMER MAY BE ENTITLED UNDER THIS SLA DURING ANY CALENDAR MONTH TOGETHER WITH ALL OTHER SERVICE CREDITS, REFUNDS, GUARANTEES, WARRANTIES AND OTHER SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENTS CUSTOMER MAY HAVE WITH LowcHost, SHALL NOT EXCEED ONE HUNDRED PERCENT (100%) OF CUSTOMER’S MONTHLY RECURRING FEE FOR THE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AFFECTED DURING SUCH MONTH.

Scheduled Maintenance:Customer hereby acknowledges that LowcHost may, from time to time, perform maintenance service on LowcHost Network, with or without notice to Customer, which may result in the unavailability of LowcHost Network. Downtime or unavailability resulting from Scheduled Maintenance shall not constitute a Qualified Network Downtime Event or qualify for any Service Credit. Customer must subscribe to LowcHost’s outage mailing list and provide accurate and timely information in LowcHost’s customer portal in order for LowcHost to notify Customer of all Scheduled Maintenance. Customer’s failure to subscribe to LowcHost’s outage mailing list or to provide accurate and timely information on LowcHost’s customer portal may result in the forfeiture of any Service Credit based on downtime or unavailability arising from Scheduled Maintenance for which Customer did not receive timely notice. Emergency maintenance and maintenance for which LowcHost has not given Customer notice in accordance with this SLA shall not be deemed Scheduled Maintenance for purposes of this SLA.
DISCLAIMER:Customer hereby acknowledges that LowcHost’s ability to provide Products and Services and technical support to Customer and to manage any server owned or controlled by or leased to Customer is contingent upon LowcHost’s ability to connect LowcHost Network to such server and monitor such server. In the event that Customer substantially impairs LowcHost’s ability to connect LowcHost Network to any server owned or controlled by or leased to Customer, including, but not limited to, through the installation of software, including, but not limited to, firewall software or load balancing software, or through the configuration of such server, then LowcHost shall have no obligation to provide Products and Services or technical support services or any of the services provided for in this SLA for such server and Customer shall not be entitled to any Service Credit under this Agreement with respect to such server. If Customer requests technical support services or management services for a server for which Customer has impaired the ability of LowcHost to connect LowcHost Network to such server, LowcHost shall provide such technical support services or management services as professional services on a time and material basis and Customer shall be billed at LowcHost’s then-current professional services rate. LowcHost shall not be liable for the failure or delay in performing its obligations hereunder or under the Agreement if such failure or delay is due to external circumstances beyond its reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, fire, flood, strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of interruption or delay in telecommunications, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of LowcHost’s products and services (each, a “Force Majeure Event”). LowcHost agrees to exercise reasonable efforts to mitigate the damage arising from Force Majeure Event; however, under no circumstances will LowcHost or its affiliates be held liable for any cost, expense, liability, claim or damage due to such interruptions. In no event shall LowcHost or its affiliates be liable to Customer or any other person for any special, incidental, consequential or punitive damages of any kind, including, without limitation, refunds of fees, loss of profits, cost of cover, loss of income or cost of replacement services. Customer acknowledges and agrees that the receipt of a Service Credit as provided for in this SLA constitutes Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and LowcHost’s sole and exclusive liability, for any failure of LowcHost Network or failure by LowcHost to provide Customer with the products and services purchased by Customer in accordance with the Agreement which results from a Qualified Downtime Event.

LowcHost RESERVES THE RIGHT TO AMEND, MODIFY OR TERMINATE THIS SLA, THE AUP AND THE PRIVACY POLICY FROM TIME TO TIME, AND A CUSTOMER’S USE OF LowcHost’S PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AND LowcHost NETWORK AFTER ANY SUCH AMENDMENT, MODIFICATION OR TERMINATION OF THIS SLA, THE AUP OR THE PRIVACY POLICY IS POSTED ON THE LEGAL DEPARTMENT PAGE OF LowcHost’S WEBSITE (WWW.LowcHost.COM) WILL CONSTITUTE THE CUSTOMER’S ACCEPTANCE OF ANY SUCH AMENDMENTS, MODIFICATIONS OR TERMINATION.
