The company will not be responsible for any settlement it does not approve in writing. The foregoing obligations do not apply with respect to portions or components of the service (i) not supplied by the company, (ii) made in whole or in part in accordance with customer specifications, (iii) that are modified after delivery by the company, (iv) combined with other products, processes, or materials where the alleged infringement relates to such combination, (v) where the customer continues allegedly infringing activity after being notified thereof or after being informed of modifications that would have avoided the alleged infringement, or (vi) where the customer's use of the service is not strictly in accordance with this agreement.

  11. Miscellaneous

Service Level Terms

The Services shall be available 99.9%, measured monthly, excluding holidays and weekends and scheduled maintenance. If Customer requests maintenance during these hours, any uptime or downtime calculation will exclude periods affected by such maintenance. In the event of Force Majeure events, such as but not limited to acts of God, fires, floods, earthquakes, riots, war, acts of terrorism, government actions, or other events beyond the reasonable control of the Company that may cause unpredictable and critical downtime, Company shall be excused from any delay or failure to perform any obligations under this Agreement. During such events, the Service availability and any related downtime credit provisions shall be suspended. Customer's sole and exclusive remedy, and Company's entire liability, in connection with Service availability shall be that for each period of downtime lasting longer than one hour, Company will credit Customer 5% of Service fees for each period of 30 or more consecutive minutes of downtime; provided that no more than one such credit will accrue per day. Downtime shall begin to accrue as soon as Customer (with notice to Company) recognizes that downtime is taking place, and continues until the availability of the Services is restored. In order to receive downtime credit, Customer must notify Company in writing within 24 hours from the time of downtime, and failure to provide such notice will forfeit the right to receive downtime credit. Such credits may not be redeemed for cash and shall not be cumulative beyond a total of credits for one (1) week of Service Fees in any one (1) calendar month in any event. Company will only apply a credit to the month in which the incident occurred. Company’s blocking of data communications or other Service in accordance with its policies shall not be deemed to be a failure of Company to provide adequate service levels under this Agreement.
