Licensor Software and Types of Licenses
Licensor Software is Birdview, the latest task and project management software for managing and tracking many types of projects.
Customer can use Licensor Software via two methods:
Licensor Software Uptime for the Software licensed under the Hosted SaaS License: ninety-nine percent (99%) uptime guaranty.
Licensor shall use reasonable industry efforts to keep the Software running. However, Licensor cannot and shall not guarantee 100% uptime of its Software. Licensor’s Software is guaranteed to be available and capable of forwarding IP packets ninety-nine percent (99%) of the time as averaged over the life of a one (1) year time period (the “Service Period”).
Downtime shall consist of packet loss, which is sustained in excess of fifty percent (50%) for fifteen (15) consecutive minutes. If Licensor sustains downtime (a disruption of service) of a duration of more than one percent (1%) in the aggregate during the Service Period, then Customer may elect to cancel this Agreement and Licensor will reimburse Customer, on a daily pro-rated basis upon request subject to any fees paid to Licensor for which Software service was unavailable and/or not rendered. For the calculation, Licensor assumes a total of thirty (30) days within a Service Period, which provides a total of 720 hours. Licensor guarantees 99% of this time period, or 713 hours to be free of downtime, as defined in this paragraph. Customer shall remain liable to Licensor for all other fees associated with the Software service incurred prior to the termination of the Software service. This guarantee shall not apply for disruption of service to End Users that is due to network congestion on the Internet or other related disruptions on the Internet that are not related to Licensor’s Software and/or services. It is very possible that Licensor’s Software is fully operational, but an End User’s access to the media is disrupted by means of independent backbone carrier issues. Customer must provide information supporting the claim of this violation such as trace route and / or PING data produced during the time of the incident.
