The Customer will be assigned an Organization Site by FBP, which allows access to the Service via a web browser, mobile application, or API which meets the minimum requirements set forth in Section 2.5.1.
2.2. User Access
The User License grants you the access to the Service via the Organization Site. This right is non-exclusive, non-transferable, and limited by and subject to this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that, subject to any applicable written agreement between the Customer and the Users, or any other applicable laws:
(i) the Customer determines who is a User and what level of user role access to the relevant organization and Service that User has;
(ii) the Customer is responsible for all Users’ use of the Service;
(iii) the Customer controls each User’s level of access to the relevant organization and Service at all times and can revoke or change a User’s access, or level of access, at any time and for any reason, in which case that person or entity will cease to be a User or shall have that different level of access, as the case may be; and
(iv) if there is any dispute between a Customer and a User regarding access to any organization or Service, the Customer
shall decide what access or level of access to the relevant Data or Service that Invited User shall have, if any.
2.2.1. Service Availability
FBP makes every effort to ensure that the Service should be available for your use 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, occasionally the services or website may be unavailable to permit necessary maintenance or development activity to take place.
If for any reason, FBP needs to interrupt services for longer periods, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that you are notified, by publication on the website, in advance of such activity.
126.96.36.199. Representations and Warranties
The Service operates on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and availability of the Service is subject to availability of AWS Services and the FBP team. Service Levels therefore, will be consistent with the service commitment of AWS, who will use “commercially reasonable efforts” to make AWS available to FBP at least 99.95% of the time, in each case during any monthly billing cycle.
FBP warrants that it will perform the Services in a manner consistent with industry standards, reasonably applicable to the performance thereof.
The Service Level shall not apply to any services other than system availability and shall not apply to performance issues (a) caused by factors outside of FBP’s reasonable control; (b) that resulted from any actions or in-actions of customer or any third parties.
The Customer acknowledges that this agreement is for a web based service that is dependent on the Customer’s Internet connection. FBP is not responsible for the unavailability of its hosting services due to the performance or availability of this connection.
Within two (2) hours of discovering, or receiving notice of Downtime, FBP will determine whether the source of the Downtime is limited to the System. If FBP determines that the System is not the source of the Downtime, FBP will attempt to determine the source of the Downtime within an additional two (2) hour period. In any event, FBP will notify Customer of the source of the Downtime within sixty (60) minutes of identifying the source.
If the source of the Downtime is within the sole control of FBP, FBP will remedy the Downtime within four (4) hours of determining the source. If the source of the Downtime resides outside of the FBP System, FBP will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify the party(ies) responsible for the source of the Downtime and cooperate with them to resolve such problem as soon as possible.
In the event that FBP is unable to determine the source of the Downtime within the time periods described, FBP will deliver one (1) Service Credit to Customer for each two (2) hour period in excess of the time periods (for identification and resolution) described above.
In order to receive any of the Service Credits described herein, Customer must notify FBP within seven (7) days from the time Customer becomes eligible for Service Credit. Failure to comply with this requirement will forfeit Customer’s right to receive Service Credit.
The aggregate maximum number of Service Credits to be issued by FBP to Customer, for any and all Downtime periods that occur in a single calendar month, shall not exceed seven (7) Service Credits. In lieu of Service Credits Customer could be eligible to receive a pro-rata refund for (a) Downtime periods for which Customer does not receive a Service Credit due to termination of the agreement or (b) any Services FBP does not deliver to Customer for which Customer has paid.
The service level warranty set forth herein shall only apply to the system provided by FBP and does not apply to (a) any professional services; (b) any supplemental services; (c) any service(s) that expressly exclude this service level warranty (as stated in the system overview for such services). This section states customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by FBP to provide service(s).
