Fuuz terms and policies

Service Level Agreement

This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) is subject to and made a part of the Master Service Agreement between the parties (the “Agreement”).  Capitalized terms not defined herein shall have the meanings ascribed to them in the Agreement.

Availability: Service Provider shall use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Services available at least 99.99% during any monthly period (“SLA Commitment”). Availability is calculated as follows:

Availability % = ((total available time + total planned downtime hours + downtime exclusion hours) / total hours)*100

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the SLA Commitment applies to circumstances within Service Provider’s reasonable control, and does not apply to downtime attributable to Amazon Web Services, integrations with Customer’s ERP or other third-party providers, or issues related to Customer’s use of the Services.

Downtime: The Services may be unavailable for scheduled maintenance on the 2nd Sunday of each month, from 7 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.  In addition, for any unplanned downtime and system maintenance, Service Provider shall endeavor to provide reasonable advance prior notice. Alterations to maintenance windows, including the addition of maintenance windows is the sole discretion of MFGx, however, Customer will be notified of such events in advance so proper coordination can take place.

Slowness/Performance Degradation: The services provided could experience intermittent slowness and or service degradation. In most circumstances these scenarios are related to the usage of the platform by the customer – volume of transactions, number of users, data usage, etc. These occurrences do not constitute availability they are dependent upon the individual use cases of each customer. Should you experience degradation in performance you should contact us by submitting a ticket, in some cases the resolution may be to increase your Service Tier.

Service Tier:  In the context of SaaS (Software as a Service) refers to the level or category of service offerings provided by the SaaS provider. Service tiers are structured to accommodate different needs, requirements, and budgets of businesses. Typically SaaS providers offer multiple service tiers to cater to a diverse range of users with varying demands. Each tier is associated with specific feature, capabilities, and pricing, allowing customers to choose the level of service that aligns with their needs. Check with the sales team to learn more about what options are available for your business.

Status Pages: Service Provider allows access to Status Pages, for paying Customer’s only. These status pages will indicate if there are any abnormalities with the Service. Paying Customers may also subscribe to these pages to receive real time updates about any issues with the Services provided. Details about planned downtime events and releases are also found on the Status Pages.

Support: Fuuz Platform customers are entitled to the following standard support matrix with an active subscription, in good standing. Other options are available at an additional cost, please check with the Fuuz sales or services team for more information to have a support plan put together that meets your specific needs. Our team will do everything they are able to within reasonable limits to assist our customers with any issues presented as quickly as possible.
Monday to Friday: 7am – 5pm Eastern Standard Time (Normal Support Hours)
Standard Response Time (Non-Critical): 3 Business Days
Expedited Response Time (Non-Critical but Business Critical): 1 Business Day
Resolution Time: TBD (varies depending on the case)

Critical Support: Fuuz is a Platform, therefore, the nature of a Platform SLA is to ensure up time and stability of the Platform itself. This does not pertain to specific solutions you may have implemented. By definition, a Critical event would be such that you are unable to access your Fuuz URL; or in general your Fuuz environment is down and un-reachable via internet. In the event something like this occurs, your Administrator User should submit a Critical request through the support portal. 

Critical Support Response: For validated Critical support requests, we provide an initial response time of up to 2 hours from the time the request is received. Critical requests that are deemed invalid, that do not align with the definition, will be billable charges to the Customer.

Critical Support Resolution: Due to the variability in each potential occurrence the Service Provider does not provide any details regarding time to resolution, these details are provided to the Customer on a case-by-case basis. 

Service Level Credits: Should Service Provider fail meet the SLA Commitment during any month, as confirmed by Service Provider, Customer, as its sole and exclusive remedy associated with such failure, will earn a service level credit which can be applied toward a future year’s Subscription Fees as follows:

Availability of 99.0% – 99.98% = 10% of annual Subscription Fees, divided by 12

Availability of less than 99.0% = 20% of annual Subscription Fees, divided by 12

Reporting, Claims and Notices: To claim a service level credit under this SLA, Customer shall send to Service Provider a written request within ten (10) business days after the  end of the applicable month. Service Provider’s records shall be dispositive regarding any disputes regarding availability.

Issue Resolution: Any system outages other than planned outages, which affect Customer’s access to the Platform will be addressed with an 8D. These 8D’s will be provided to the Customer, upon Customer’s written request via support ticket. 8D initial responses will be made available to Customers who request them within 10 business days of the issue, final 8D’s and corrective/permanent actions will be provided in approximately 60 days from initial occurrence.

Fuuz Gateway / Fuuz Browser Extension: Before submitting any concerns with these services provided with the platform, please be sure that you’re running the current supported version. Any requests submitted, regarding issues with out of support versions will be billed T&M to the Customer. Due to updates within the Browser Extension requiring a deployment through the Google Play store, your end users will be notified of such updates automatically within their browser when using the extension, except, if you have group policies in place to prevent this. The Fuuz Gateway also provides ‘in-app’ notifications to the administrator who has access. You should keep up on the latest versions of all Fuuz applications by consistently checking our Release Notes. For the latest “LTS” information on the Gateway reference the information here. Anytime you submit a request for support to us, be sure to include the version of these applications so our team may be better able to assist you, also provide the OS version, Browser Version and any additional information such as recent software updates or patches that have been performed.
