"Monthly Availability Percentage" is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which any class of Hosterlabs Service was Unavailable. Monthly Availability Percentage measurements exclude Unavailability resulting directly or indirectly from any Unavailability Exclusion (as defined below).

To request a Service Credit, You must file a support request within sixty (60) calendar days of the suspected incident via the Hosterlabs Control Panel. If the Monthly Availability Percentage of such request is confirmed by Hosterlabs and is less than the Monthly Availability Commitment, then Hosterlabs will issue the Service Credit to You within forty-five (45) calendar days in which your request is confirmed by Hosterlabs. Hosterlabs’s monitoring tools, data and records will be the sole source of information used to track and validate Availability. Service Credits will be issued to the person or entity that Hosterlabs invoices for the applicable instance of the Hosterlabs Service, as a separate credit memo that can be applied towards a future invoice for that Hosterlabs Service instance. If Your Service Term for the Hosterlabs Service expires or is terminated prior to the issuance of a Service Credit, the Service Credit will become void as of the date of the expiration or termination. You will not be eligible to receive a Service Credit if: (i) Your Account has any payments for the Hosterlabs Service that are delinquent, (ii) You are in violation of the Terms of Service during the time of the incident, or (iii) the incident was due to Your failure to meet Your security responsibilities as set forth in the Terms of Service. The Service Credits specified in this SLA are Your sole and exclusive remedies for any incident occurring during Your Service Term for the Hosterlabs Service or for any other claim in connection with this SLA. In no event will the amount of Service Credits issued for all incidents within a given month exceed 100% of the monthly invoiced amount for the Hosterlabs Services.
