Service Level Agreement | Lucidum

Service Level Agreement

  1. Service Levels Agreement:
    1. Service Commitment. Lucidum shall use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain availability of the Lucidum Service with a Monthly Uptime Percentage (defined below) of no less than 99.9% in any given calendar month. If Lucidum is unable to meet this Monthly Uptime Percentage in any month, you will be eligible to receive a Service Credit to be applied as described below.
    2. Definitions. “Monthly Uptime Percentage” is the percentage of time during each applicable month in which Subscriber can access the features and functions of the production instance of the Service, less any periods that the Service is Unavailable.
    3. “Unavailable”. Lucidum Service is in a state of “Unavailable” if the Service:
      1. Is inaccessible through the internet, excluding scheduled maintenance windows.
      2. When using valid access credentials, each Authorized End User is unable to log into the Service.

      In the event that an unscheduled interruption occurs, Lucidum will use commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the problem and return the Service to availability as soon as practical. During these scheduled and unscheduled interruptions, Subscriber may be unable to transmit and receive data through the Service. Subscriber agrees to cooperate with Lucidum during the scheduled and unscheduled interruptions if assistance from Subscriber is necessary to restore the Service to working order.

      In the event that the Service is unavailable as result of any of the following causes, those periods during which Subscriber is unable to access the features and functions of the Service will not be included in the monthly calculation of “Unavailable”:

      1. Maintenance: Scheduled interruptions to conduct normal software or hardware upgrades may occur, and Lucidum does not warrant uninterrupted availability of the Service. In the event of any scheduled interruption, Lucidum will distribute a notification via email to the most recent Subscriber email address provided according to the following schedule:
        1. At least two (2) weeks in advance of a major service update;
        2. within forty-eight (48) hours of standard scheduled maintenance events’
        3. within twelve (12) hours of other non-standard emergency maintenance.
      2. Subscriber’s use of the Service in excess of the Baseline.
      3. Any window of time when Subscriber agrees that Service availability or unavailability will not be monitored or counted.
      4. If Service is unavailable because Subscriber did not make required manual updates within 60 days, Unavailability resulting from this failure will also not be included in the monthly calculation of “Unavailable”. Any associated Lucidum software or Installable Component provided as part of the Service that requires the Subscriber to make manual updates should be completed within sixty (60) days of the Service update.
      5. Unavailability resulting from Subscriber's software or systems, as well as third party software and systems used in Subscriber’s environment.
      6. Subscriber acts or omissions including, without limitation, the following:
        1. Authorized End User’s use of any programs not supplied by Lucidum;
        2. Subscriber’s failure to comply with the terms and conditions of the Agreement;
        3. Failure to configure the Service according to the provided documentation (as determined in Lucidum’s sole discretion), including, without limitation, configuration errors and improper or unintended usage of the Service;
        4. Authorized End User’s failure to upgrade or update the Lucidum Installable Components and End User configurations within required timeframes.
      7. In addition to the above, certain configuration changes can also cause the Service to be unavailable. These configurations are those that are adjusted at the Subscriber’s discretion and, therefore, Lucidum cannot always be prepared to respond to these changes. As a result, any period(s) of unavailability resulting from any of the configuration changes included in the following list, without sufficient notice given to Lucidum to resize the environment accordingly, will also not be included in the monthly calculation of “Unavailable”:
        1. An increase in the Baseline number of Assets, Users, or Data being concurrently monitored by the Service that exceeds 25%.
      8. Unavailable state caused by Subscriber’s or Subscriber’s Affiliates or agents, including incidents caused by Subscriber’s configurations, software, hardware, web services or other technologies used by Subscriber.
      9. Unavailable state attributable to general downtime of any of Lucidum’s downstream cloud services and infrastructure providers.
      10. Unavailable state resulting from denial-of-service attacks, virus attacks, or hacking attempts.
      11. Any other circumstances that are not within Lucidum’s reasonable control, including availability of the Internet. Non-availability of certain features of functions of the Lucidum Service is also excluded if such features or functions do not materially impair the use of the Service.
      12. Unauthorized use of the Service. Subscriber is responsible for all activities that occur under its and its Authorized Users’ usernames, passwords, or accounts. Lucidum is not responsible for any losses arising due to any breach of this Agreement by any Authorized User or any other personnel, agent, or advisor of Subscriber. Subscriber will notify Lucidum immediately of any unauthorized use of the Service.
      13. Force Majeure. If Lucidum is prevented from carrying out any of its service levelundertakings as a result of an act of God, strikes, fire, riot, war (whether declared or not), terrorism, embargoes, export control, international restrictions, shortage of transport facilities, any order of any international authority, any court order, any requirements of any authority or other competent local authority, other technology failures, pandemic or epidemic (or similar regional health crisis), or any other circumstances whatsoever which are not within the reasonable control of Lucidum, then Lucidum will be deemed to have been relieved of the performance of these service level under takings to the extent that and for so long as it is so prevented from performing, this agreement will be deemed to have been suspended to such extent and for the period concerned.
    4. Service Credits: If Lucidum is unable to meet their Service Commitment in any calendar month and Subscriber submits a request for credit, Lucidum will provide to Subscriber a service credit for the Unavailability (a “Service Credit”).
      1. Service Credit Calculation: Subscriber will receive a Service Credit equal to five percent (5%) of the applicable SaaS fees for the month in which the outage event(s) occurred for every one percent (1%) that the Monthly Uptime Percentage falls below 99.9%, up to the maximum of twenty five percent (25%) of the applicable SaaS fees for that month. To receive a Service Credit, Subscriber must submit a request to Lucidum within fifteen (15) days following the month in which the outage event(s) occurred. The Service Credits set forth here are Subscriber’s sole and exclusive remedy for not achieving the Monthly Uptime Percentage.
      2. Service Credit Application: Any Service Credit will be applied against the subsequent billing cycle invoice for the SaaS fees or additional SaaS fees due to Lucidum. In no event shall any SaaS fees be refundable.
    5. Service Request: Lucidum will provide Subscriber’s support personnel with Business Weekdays (Excludes Holidays) technical support to answer Subscriber’s routine questions and assist Subscriber in solving problems with the Service. Technical Support is accessible via the Lucidum Customer Success Portal. Lucidum Customer Success Portal may include any of the following: a knowledge base, on-line case tracking, frequently asked questions, and user documentation. If appropriate, Subscriber will cooperate with Lucidum to allow and enable Lucidum to perform technical support via remote connection using standard, commercially available remote software. Subscriber shall be solely responsible for instituting and maintaining proper security safeguards to protect Subscriber systems and data. This technical support is not available to Unauthorized End Users. Before contacting Lucidum’s Customer Success Team, be sure to have the following information available:
