Teleport shall use commercially reasonable efforts to correct all service errors and respond to and resolve all support requests in accordance with the timelines set forth in the table below.

If there is an “S1: Urgent”, “S2: High” or “S3: Medium” issue, Customer must create a ticket in the support portal or send an email with "S1", "S2" or "S3" in the subject line so that Teleport can escalate properly in order to be covered by the response time guarantee.

2. Availability Software deployed in Teleport’s Computing Environment (SaaS Service)

2.1. The following availability terms are applicable to the SaaS Service.

2.2. Service Level. Teleport shall make the SaaS Service Available, as measured over the course of each calendar month during the Subscription (each such calendar month, a "Service Period"), at least 99.9% of the time, excluding only the time SaaS Service is not Available solely as a result of one or more Exceptions (the "Service Level"). "Available" means the SaaS Service is available and operable for access and use by Customer, and their respective Users in material conformity with the Documentation, Agreement and applicable Sales Order. "Availability" has a correlative meaning. SaaS Service is not considered Available in the event of any performance degradation or interoperability of the SaaS Service or any material portion thereof.

2.3. Exceptions. The Service Level does not cover any period of degradation or interoperability in calculating Availability to the extent that such lack of interoperability or degradation is due to any of the following ("Exceptions"):

2.3.1. Customer or Users misuse of the SaaS Service;

2.3.2. Failures of Customer or Users internet connectivity;

2.3.3. Internet or other network traffic problems other than problems arising in or from networks actually or required to be provided or controlled by Teleport;

2.3.4. Customer or any User’s equipment, software, network connections, infrastructure, and other systems;

2.3.5. Third party systems, acts or omissions (third party products) and errors in third party measurement tools;

2.3.6. Modification to SaaS Service by any individual other than Teleport;

2.3.7. Customer’s failure to keep their Teleport agents current with the SaaS Service. For purposes of these terms, “current” (i) the most recent major release of SaaS Service, or (ii) the previous major release of SaaS Service; or

2.3.8. Caused by a force majeure event beyond Teleport’s control.

2.4. Status Page. Customer shall have access to information on the Availability of the SaaS Service via https://status.teleport.sh.

2.5. Remedies for Availability Failures.

If Customer is current on its payment obligations and Teleport confirms/verifies the Availability of SaaS Service is less than the specified Service Level during a Service Period, Teleport will apply a credit of 10% of the applicable Monthly Fees payable for SaaS Service provided during the Service Period for each 1% by which actual uptime is less than the Service Level (the “Service Credit”).

2.5.1. To be eligible to receive a Service Credit, Customer must request such Service Credit from Teleport in writing no later than thirty (30) days following the end of the month in which Customer believes that the uptime of the SaaS Service was below the Service Level.

3. Miscellaneous.

3.1. The “Monthly Fee” is 1/12th of the annual Subscription Fees plus any Additional Usage Fees charged during the applicable month.

3.2. Response Credits and Service Credits (together, the “Credits”) shall be Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy (and Teleport’s sole liability) for Teleport’s failure to meet the support response times or Service Level (as applicable). The parties acknowledge and agree the Service Credits constitute liquidated damages and not a penalty.

3.3. Final calculations and determinations as to Credits shall be made by Teleport at its sole discretion.

3.4. In no event will the total aggregate amount of Credits exceed fifty percent (50%) of the Monthly Fee.

3.5. Credits not requested within the applicable time period will be automatically forfeited.

3.6. Credits may be applied to any amount owed or owing to Teleport in the future.
