Service Level Agreement (SLA)
The SLA is incorporated into the Master Service Agreement and applicable to all services delivered directly to Customers of ZipServers. The SLA is not applicable to unrelated third parties or third parties lacking privity of contract with ZipServers. The uptime guarantees and the resulting SLA credits are applied in monthly terms unless specified otherwise. All SLA guarantees and information listed below are made in good faith and are subject to standard contract remedies.
SLA Credit Claim: To properly claim an SLA credit due, the Customer’s master administrative user must open an SLA ticket located inside the Customer portal at https://www.zipsupport.com within seven days of the purported outage. Customer must include service type, IP Address, contact information, and full description of the service interruption including logs, if applicable. The SLA claim will be researched by the appropriate ZipServers department manager and any credit issued will be issued to accounting and the ticket will be updated. SLA credits are issued as service credits on future billing cycles. SLA credits shall not be bartered or traded with other ZipServers customers. Please allow up to fourteen (14) days for the process of SLA claims.
SLA Claim Fault: Customers currently in arrears for monthly services do not qualify for SLA claims. Customers who have been in payment arrears three or more times in the previous twelve months do not qualify for SLA claims. Valid SLA claims will not be credited to the Customer’s accounts until all abuse issues are resolved. Any Customer making false or repetitive claims will incur a one time charge of $50 per incident for such claims. False or repetitive claims are also a violation of the TOS and may be subject to service suspension. Customers participating in malicious or aggressive internet activities, thereby causing attacks or counter-attacks, do not qualify for SLA claims and shall be deemed in violation of the AUP.
