Web Hosting Service Level Agreement

WebGoddess Industries is proud to offer an exceptional level of performance, reliability, and service. That is why we are making commitments to our customers in the form of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) which provides certain rights and remedies regarding the performance of the WebGoddess Industries network. The WebGoddess Industries Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantees our network/equipment reliability and performance. This Service Level Agreement (SLA) applies to customers of WebGoddess Industries web hosting, reseller and e-commerce.

Uptime Guarantee:
WebGoddess Industries strives to maintain a 99.5% network and server uptime service level. This uptime percentage is a monthly figure, and is is calculated solely by WebGoddess Industries monitoring systems or WebGoddess Industries authorized/contracted outside monitoring services. If WebGoddess Industries fails to meet it's 99.5% uptime guarantee, and it is not due to one of the exceptions below, credits will be made available to each client, upon request, on a case by case basis. WebGoddess Industries does not credit a full month's service for minor downtime. This would not be financially healthy for WebGoddess Industries, and in turn would only negatively affect the service level WebGoddess Industries provides to you. "Partial refunds for partial downtime" is our standard policy. In extreme circumstances, WebGoddess Industries may distribute full month credits, but this is dealt with on a case by case basis. Details on how credit amounts are calculated can be found below.

Exceptions:
Customer shall not receive any credits under this SLA in connection with any failure or deficiency of the WebGoddess Industries network caused by or associated with:

* Circumstances beyond reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of any governmental body, war, insurrection, sabotage, embargo, "Acts of God" (ie...fire, flood, earthquake, tornado, etc...), strike or other labor disturbance, interruption of or delay in transportation, unavailability of or interruption or delay in telecommunications or third party services, failure of third party software or inability to obtain raw materials, supplies, or power used in or equipment needed for provision of the Service Level Agreement
* Telco Failure (ie...Verizon™ cutting a fiber line somewhere)
* Backbone peering point issues (ie...UUnet™ having a router go down in Virginia that wipes out internet service for the entire East Coast)
* Scheduled maintenance for hardware/software upgrades
* DNS issues not within the direct control of WebGoddess Industries
* Client’s acts or omissions, including without limitation, any negligence, willful misconduct, or use of WebGoddess Industries service(s) in breach of WebGoddess Industries Policy and Service Guidelines (AUP), by Client or others authorized by Client.

Connectivity:
WebGoddess Industries goal is to make the WebGoddess Industries network available to Client free of outages for 99.5% of the time. An "outage” is defined as an instance in which Client is unable to transmit and receive IP packets due to a WebGoddess Industries service failure for more than 15 consecutive minutes, excluding service failures relating to WebGoddess Industries scheduled maintenance and upgrades. The WebGoddess Industries network does not include client premises equipment or any Telco access facilities connecting Client's premises to such infrastructure. WebGoddess Industries goal is to keep Average Round-Trip Latency on the WebGoddess Industries network to 85 milliseconds or less. WebGoddess Industries defines “Average Round-Trip Latency”, with respect to a given month, as the average time required for round-trip packet transfers between the WebGoddess Industries network and major US backbone peering points during such month, as measured by WebGoddess Industries. WebGoddess Industries goal is to keep Average Packet Loss on the WebGoddess Industries network to 1% or less. WebGoddess Industries defines “Average Packet Loss”, with respect to a given month, as the average percentage of IP packets transmitted on the WebGoddess Industries network during such month that are not successfully delivered, as measured by WebGoddess Industries.

Measurement:
WebGoddess Industries will periodically (on average every 10 minutes) monitor WebGoddess Industries network and server availability using software and hardware components capable of measuring application traffic and responses. Client acknowledges that that such measurements may not measure the exact path traversed by Client’s internet connection, and that such measurements constitute measurements across the WebGoddess Industries network but not other networks to which Client may connect. WebGoddess Industries reserves the right to periodically change the measurement points and methodologies it uses without notice to Client. Full network and server reporting will be posted to a location designated by WebGoddess Industries and made available to Client.

Hardware Failure:
WebGoddess Industries stands behind all equipment on our network. Faulty hardware is rare, but cannot be predicted nor avoided. WebGoddess Industries utilizes only name brand hardware of the highest quality and perfomance. WebGoddess Industries will replace all faulty hardware affecting performance levels of equipment within 48 hours, which includes hardware issues that cause server crashes or speed issues. Hardware failure resulting in complete network/server outage/downtime will be corrected within two hours of problem identification. Router failure is an exception to this SLA guarantee, and may require on-site Cisco™ engineers or backbone provider emergency personnel to correct the problem. Router failure is governed by current WebGoddess Industries contracts with Cisco™ and backbone providers in regard to the emergency repair service in case of such an issue.

Credits:
Credit requests must be made on the WebGoddess Industries web site, by emailing to billing@onlinewebgoddess.com. Each request in connection with network/server outages/downtime must be received by WebGoddess Industries within five days of the occurance. Each request in connection with Average Round-Trip Latency or Average Packet Loss in a calendar month must be received by WebGoddess Industries within five days after the end of such month. The total amount credited to a Client for WebGoddess Industries not meeting SLA service levels will not exceed the service fees paid by Client WebGoddess Industries for such services for the period in question. Each validly requested credit will be applied to a Client invoice within 30 days after WebGoddess Industries receipt of such request. Credits are exclusive of any applicable taxes charged to Client or collected by WebGoddess Industries. Upon Client’s request (in accordance with the procedure set forth below), WebGoddess Industries will issue a credit to Client for network/server outages/downtime occurring during any calendar month that are reported by Client to WebGoddess Industries and confirmed by WebGoddess Industries' ™ measurement reporting. Such credit will be equal to one MONTH’s worth of service. If Average Round-Trip Latency on the WebGoddess Industries network for a calendar month exceeds 85 milliseconds, then upon Client's request, WebGoddess Industries will issue a credit to Client equal to one MONTH's worth of service. If Average Packet Loss exceeds 1% during a calendar month, then upon Client's request, WebGoddess Industries will issue a credit to Client equal to one MONTH's worth of service.

Account cancellations:
Your account can be cancelled ONLY by submitting an email to support@onlinewebgoddess.com requesting specifically that your account is to be cancelled. Other methods of cancellation are not valid. Once your request has been submitted the account will be cancelled within 24 hours. Accounts moved without proper cancellation notice given to WebGoddess Industries will still be charged for their next invoice.

General:
WebGoddess Industries reserves the right to change or modify this SLA to benefit the Client, and will post changes to location currently housing this SLA at time of modification, which will be made available to Client. Except as set forth in this SLA, WebGoddess Industries makes no claims regarding the availability or performance of the WebGoddess Industries network or servers. Specific terms/points of this SLA may be adjusted on a case by case basis by the specific Service Agreement signed/agreed by client. In case of difference terms/points in SLA and Service Agreement, the Service Agreement terms/points prevail over this general SLA policy. The Service Agreement signed/agreed by client, is above and beyond this SLA, and Service Agreement terms are in affect, including, but not limited to, limitations of liability.
