Please, ensure that you check the applicable terms every time you use our Services so that you understand which terms apply. You will be subject to, and will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted the changes in any revised SLA by your continued use of the Service after the date such revised SLA is posted.
Definitions and Terms

Intermittent Downtime for a period of less than five minutes will not be counted towards any Downtime periods.
“Scheduled Downtime” It means periods of scheduled unavailability of the IDmelon system and user authentication service in order to perform routine service maintenance, upgrades, and testing.

“Severity Level” means that IDmelon shall respond to Customers’ support requests and Resolve errors in accordance with the applicable Severity Level, Response Time, and Resolution Time set forth in the Severity Level table below. “Response Time” will be measured from the time IDmelon receives a support request until IDmelon has responded to that support request. “Resolution Time” will be measured from the time IDmelon receives a support request until IDmelon has Resolved that support request. “Resolve“, “Resolved“, “Resolution” and correlative capitalized terms mean that IDmelon has addressed the Error, whether by a work-around or any other reasonable means, that prompted that support request.
