SCHEDULE 1 - SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT for CUSTOMER-SUPPORT

1. The Datix Service Desk is available 9:30am to 5:00pm UK Time, Monday to Friday, except UK public holidays.

2. The purpose of the Service Desk is primarily to enable the Customer’s nominated contact to access technical help in the event that the Customer encounters any Faults in the Licensed Programs which prevent the Licensed Programs from running, including configurations and customisations made to the Licensed Programs by Datix under the terms of the Licence.

3. Datix normally limits support to named individuals within an organisation and only queries from these individuals will be accepted. The Customer’s nominated contact is expected to have been trained in the Datix software and to be familiar with the Operating Instructions and with Microsoft Windows.

4. Datix recommends that details of any suspected Faults are emailed to the address above. The Customer may also be asked to provide a more detailed description of the problem or to conduct certain investigations.

5. All requests for support are logged and allocated a call reference number. The Customer will receive an acknowledgement by email that their request has been logged and details of the priority which has been assigned to it. This will normally be done within three working hours of receipt of the request. If the suspected fault is a Priority 1 (see the table below) you should telephone Datix.

6. Where the Fault is that the Licensed Programs do not run at all, or run more slowly than usual, this is almost always due to some change or failure in the Customer’s operating environment or hardware for which Datix is not responsible. You should therefore check first with your IT department or other support service and advise Datix in your support request of the contact person in your IT department who is dealing with the matter and the results of any checks that he or she has carried out.

7. Suspected Faults are prioritised and allocated to a Datix support analyst. The suspected Fault may be tested against the replica of the Licensed Programs maintained by Datix for this purpose or any support copy maintained at the Customer’s site (“Support Copy”).

8. Datix will not be able to resolve suspected Faults which cannot be repeated or replicated on the replica or Support Copy. These will be presumed to be attributable to non-Datix software.

9. When a Fault has been accepted by Datix as a Fault in the Datix Licensed Programs or as requiring further investigation before such a determination can be made, Datix will allocate it a priority. The priority is assessed according to the effect of the problem on the Licensed Programs and its Permitted Users in accordance with the Support Response Times set out below.

10. Datix support is not intended as a substitute for training or for dealing with matters which are dealt with in the Operating Instructions. However, as a discretionary service and not as a matter of obligation, the Service Desk may be available to answer queries of the “How do I ?” Type.

11. Datix provides a chargeable service for dealing with support requests that are not covered by your contract. This service can be accessed by contacting the Service Desk in the normal way.

12. At Datix, we are constantly improving our products. Our aim is to make them easier to use, which will increase efficiency and deliver more benefits for your organisation. If you have a suggestion for the Datix software, you may request a suggestion form by contacting the service desk in the usual manner.

13. For the purpose of providing the Licensed Programs and the services described in this Service Level Agreement, Datix may process contact data, identification data, behavioral data and/or account data about Permitted Users from time to time.

14. Datix may process further categories of personal data about data subjects in connection with Implementation Services or Hosting Services as described in the Quote or the Privacy Policy respectively.

3.1 Except to the extent caused by Datix breaching these Terms and Conditions, (a) the Customer is responsible for all activities that occur under the Customer’s account, regardless of whether the activities are authorised by the Customer or undertaken by the Customer, the Customer’s employees or a Third Party (including the Customer’s contractors, agents or End Users), and (b) Datix and Datix’s affiliates are not responsible for unauthorised access to the Customer’s account.

3.2 The Customer will ensure that Customer Content and the Customer and End Users’ use of Customer Content or the Service Offerings will not violate any of the Policies or any applicable law. The Customer is solely responsible for the development, content, operation, maintenance, and use of Customer Content.

3.3 The Customer is responsible for properly configuring and using the Service Offerings and otherwise taking appropriate action to secure, protect and backup Customer accounts and Customer Content in a manner that will provide appropriate security and protection, which might include use of encryption to protect Customer Content from unauthorised access and routinely archiving Customer Content.

3.4 Log-in credentials and private keys generated by the Services are for Customer internal use only and the Customer will not sell, transfer or sublicense them to any other entity or person, except that the Customer may disclose the Customer’s private key to the Customer’s agents and subcontractors performing work on the Customer’s behalf.

3.5 The Customer will be deemed to have taken any action that the Customer permits, assists or facilitates any person or entity to take related to these Terms and Conditions, Customer Content or use of the Service Offerings. The Customer is responsible for End Users’ use of Customer Content and the Service Offerings. The Customer will ensure that all End Users comply with the Customer’s obligations under these Terms and Conditions and that the terms of the Customer’s agreement with each End User are consistent with these Terms and Conditions. If the Customer becomes aware of any violation of the Customer’s obligations under these Terms and Conditions caused by an End User, the Customer will immediately suspend access to Customer Content and the Service Offerings by such End User.

3.6 The Customer acknowledges that failure to fulfil any Customer Dependency in the manner and timescales required under these Terms and Conditions from time to time may prejudice Datix’s ability to meet its obligations under these Terms and Conditions. The Customer therefore agrees that Datix shall not be liable for any failure by Datix to perform its obligations under these Terms and Conditions to the extent caused by the Customer’s failure to ensure that all Customer Dependencies are fulfilled in the manner and timescales required by these Terms and Conditions. Any obligation of Datix which is prejudiced by the Customer’s failure to ensure that the all Customer Dependencies are fulfilled in the manner and timescales required by these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed extended by a reasonable time.

3.8 The Customer shall at all times cooperate with Datix and/or the Hosting Provider in connection with the provision of the Services. The Customer accepts and shall comply with the Policies. The Customer shall ensure that all End Users shall accept and comply with the Policies.

3.9 Notwithstanding any other term of these Terms and Conditions, Datix will not be in breach of these Terms and Conditions to the extent its failure to perform or delay or defect in performance of its obligations under these Terms and Conditions arises as a result of:

3.9.1 any breach by the Customer of its obligations contained in these Terms and Conditions; or

3.9.2 Datix relying on any incomplete or inaccurate data provided by, or complying with any instruction or request made by the Customer and/or any of its respective employees or representatives.

5.1 Datix may suspend the provision of the Services (or any part of them) without having any liability to the Customer:

5.1.1 where there is (or Datix reasonably suspects there is) any unauthorised access to the Customer's network which may result in unauthorised access to Datix and/or the Hosting Provider’s network, in which case the suspension will last until such time as that unauthorised access ceases or is demonstrated by the Customer not to have occurred;

5.1.2 where the Customer is (or Datix reasonably believes the Customer is) subject to a Cyber Attack;

5.1.3 in order to take precautions in a situation where the systems of Datix, of a Contractor or of other Datix customers are at risk of or subject to a Cyber Attack;

5.1.4 in order to carry out emergency technical maintenance to any of Datix’s or a Contractor’s

5.3 Datix reserves the right to suspend or vary the Services (or part of them and whether generally or in respect of the Customer only) where it is required to do so by law, or at the direction of any court or governmental or other regulatory body, or as a result of the loss or revocation of any licence which Datix or the Hosting Provider requires to provide the Services (or part thereof) or as a result of a change imposed on Datix by any of its suppliers. During the period of any such suspension the Hosting Charges for the suspended Services (or part thereof) will not be payable unless the suspension arises as a consequence of an act or omission of the Customer, its employees or agents or persons authorised by it to use the Services.

6 SERVICE TERMS

6.1 The Customer may only use the Services to store, retrieve, query, serve, and execute Customer Content that is owned, licensed or lawfully obtained by the Customer. As part of the Services, the Customer may be allowed to use certain software (including related documentation) provided by Datix or Third Party licensors. This software is neither sold nor distributed to the Customer unless by a specific agreement and the Customer may use it solely as part of the Services. The Customer may not transfer it outside the Services without specific authorisation to do so.

6.2 The Customer must comply with the current technical documentation applicable to the Services (including the applicable developer guides) as posted by Datix and updated by Datix from time to time on the Datix Website.

If the Customer does not remove or disable access to the Prohibited Content within one Business Day of Datix’s notice, Datix may remove or disable access to the Prohibited Content or suspend the Services to the extent Datix are not able to remove or disable access to the Prohibited Content. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Datix may remove or disable access to any Prohibited Content without prior notice in connection with illegal content, where the content may disrupt or threaten the Services, or as required to comply with law or any judicial, regulatory or other governmental order or request. In the event that Datix removes content without prior notice, Datix will provide prompt notice to the Customer unless prohibited by law.

Any increase applied by Datix pursuant to this Clause 8.3 shall take into account any increases in the Hosting Charges which have been made by Datix in the preceding twelve months in accordance with Clause 8.5.

8.4 In the event that in any Year the actual Hosting Charges payable by the Customer in respect of any hosting or co-location Service would be less than 50% of the value of the highest amount of Hosting Charges paid by the Customer in any preceding Year then the Hosting Charges payable by the Customer for that Year shall be 50% of such higher Hosting Charges instead of the lower actual Hosting Charges.

13.11 In the event that the provision of the Services (or part thereof) is terminated prior to the expiry of its Minimum Term or without compliance with its Notice Period (as applicable) other than by reason of the Customer exercising its right to terminate pursuant to Clauses 14.2 or 14.4 or should the Customer purport to terminate the provision of the Services without complying with the applicable provisions of these Terms and Conditions, none of the provisions of this Clause 13 shall operate so as to exclude Datix’s right to recover from the Customer the Hosting Charges which would have been payable by the Customer in respect of the Services up until the earliest point at which the Customer could have lawfully terminated the provision of the Services in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, provided that Datix shall be obliged to mitigate its loss in accordance with common law principles.

14.2 The Customer shall be entitled to terminate the provision by Datix of the Services prior to the expiry of the Minimum Term or thereafter, without complying with the applicable Notice Period, in the event that Datix fails (for a reason which is not Force Majeure or suspension of Services pursuant to Clause 5) to make the Service in question available for a period in excess of twenty-four consecutive hours on three occasions in any period of three consecutive months.

14.8.4 the Customer will immediately return or, if instructed by Datix, destroy all Datix Content and Third Party Content in the Customer’s possession; and

14.8.5 Clauses 1, 3.1, 4, 7, 10, 12 (except the license granted to the Customer in Clause 12.3), 13,

14.9.2 Datix will allow the Customer to retrieve Customer Content from the Services only if the Customer has paid all amounts due under these Terms and Conditions.

15.2.1 not be liable to pay the Hosting Charges associated with the provision of the Service in question during the continuance of the event of that Force Majeure event; and

16.2 In the event that the provision of any Service is terminated by the Customer pursuant to Clauses 14.2 or 14.4 and the Customer wishes to retrieve any data stored by it following such termination then the Customer shall inform Datix of this in writing at the same time as the Customer gives notice of termination.

SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT applicable to the SERVICES (THE DATIX HOSTED SERVICE)
1 The Datix Service Desk is available 9:30am to 5:00pm UK Time, Monday to Friday, except UK public holidays for application queries.

2 The purpose of the Service Desk is primarily to enable the Customer’s nominated contact to access technical help in the event that the Customer encounters any problems with the Services.

3 Datix normally limits support to named individuals within an organisation and only queries from these individuals will be accepted. The Customer’s nominated contact is expected to have been trained in the Datix software and to be familiar with the Operating Instructions and with Microsoft Windows.

4 Datix recommends that details of any Fault are emailed to support@datix.co.uk. The Customer may also be asked to provide a more detailed description of the problem or to conduct certain investigations.

5 All requests for support are logged and allocated a call reference number. The Customer will receive an acknowledgement by email that their request has been logged and details of the priority which has been assigned to it. This will normally be done within three working hours of receipt of the request. If the suspected fault is of critical priority (1) (see the table below) you should telephone Datix.

6 Datix will not be able to resolve suspected issues which cannot be repeated or replicated. These will be presumed to be attributable to matters unrelated to the Services.

7 When a Fault has been accepted by Datix as a problem in the Services or as requiring further investigation before such a determination can be made, Datix will allocate it a priority. The priority is assessed according to the effect of the Fault on access to the Datix software in accordance with the Support Response Times set out in the table below.

8 Datix support is not intended as a substitute for training or for dealing with matters which are dealt with in any information provided to the Customer. However, as a discretionary service and not as a matter of obligation, the Service Desk may be available to answer queries of the “How do I ?” type.

9 Datix provides a chargeable service for dealing with support requests that are not covered by your contract. This service can be accessed by contacting the Service Desk in the normal way.

10 At Datix, we are constantly improving our products. Our aim is to make them easier to use, which will increase efficiency and deliver more benefits for your organisation. If you have a suggestion for the Services, you may request a suggestion form by contacting the service desk in the usual manner.
