Once the 400 STPs are reached in a month, further visits to the Customer Website will not be analysed and the representations on the Platform Dashboard may be incomplete for that month. In the following month, Customer can then use the Services again to the extent of the Free Basic Version until the 400 STPs are reached.

      The Free Basic Version is provided "as is" with certain downtime. TWIPLA does not promise any specific Service Levels as part of the Basic Free Version. TWIPLA will use its best efforts to minimize downtime when using the Free Basic Version. TWIPLA disclaims all warranties with respect to the Free Basic Version and shall only be liable for fraudulently concealed defects.

Appendix 1

  1. Service Levels
    1. The Service Levels for the Platform and other available features of the Services are defined as follows:

      System availability of the Platform per month [average availability].
      Service level99.75% availability

      The availability is calculated as follows:

      "Availability" means the ability of Customer to access the features of the 
      Platform as agreed in the Agreement.

      "Scheduled Downtime" means the total time (in minutes) in a calendar year
      that the Platform is unavailable due to Scheduled System Maintenance or
      other Scheduled Downtime. TWIPLA will use reasonable efforts to
      ensure that Scheduled System Maintenance occurs between 1:00 a.m. and
      5:00 a.m. CEST and that reasonable notice of such System Maintenance
      is given.

      "System Availability" relative to availability in a calendar year is the ratio
      expressed as a percentage when Customer subtracts the unscheduled
      downtime in that calendar year from the annual total time in that year and
      then divides that difference by the annual total time in that year (see formula

      "Total Annual Time" includes all minutes in the applicable calendar year during
      the term of the Agreement.

      "Unscheduled Downtime" means the total time (in minutes) of unavailability
      in a calendar year, excluding Planned Downtime and excluding Downtime that
      occurs due to circumstances beyond TWIPLA's control. Such circumstances
      include, without limitation,
      (i) Customer's breach of the terms of this Agreement,
      (ii) Customer's failure to comply with the terms of this SLA,
      (iii) incompatibility of Customer's hardware or software with the agreed requirements
      relating to use of the Services, including the requirements set forth in the Access Protocols,
      (iv) poor or inadequate performance of the Systems or Customer,
      (v) Customer's use of the Services significantly in excess of the agreed volume, or
      (vi) Force Majeure (as defined in the Agreement).

    2. If TWIPLA fails to meet the Service Levels set forth in Appendix 1 'Service Levels', Customer shall be entitled to the service credits set forth below ("Credits"), provided that Credits for Unscheduled Downtime shall not exceed 5% of the total charges paid by Customer to TWIPLA for all Services provided during the applicable Service Month.

      < 98.0%5.0%
      < 97.0%10.0%
    3. Receipt of Credits. In order to receive a credit, Customer must request such credit in writing from TWIPLA within five (5) business days of receipt of a report describing the Unscheduled Downtime ("Service Level Report") for the period for which the credit is alleged to have occurred. Customer's written request must detail the date(s), time(s), and duration(s) of any Unscheduled Downtime claimed by Customer. If TWIPLA approves Customer's written request for a credit after review, TWIPLA will notify Customer of this fact and how to receive the credit. Credits cannot be applied retroactively. Any Customer who fails to timely submit a written request for a credit will forfeit all rights to receive a credit for that month. Credits payable by TWIPLA will be credited against any claim for damages Customer may have under the Agreement based on such Service Level violation.
    4. Customer must notify TWIPLA immediately if any Unscheduled Downtime occurs. Unscheduled Downtime shall be deemed to have occurred when TWIPLA receives sufficient notice to that effect from Customer or when TWIPLA first becomes aware of such Unscheduled Downtime, whichever occurs first.
