NETWORK UPTIME:

This is the total time in a calendar month that Boss Creative’s network is available through the internet, provided that the customer has established connectivity. Boss Creative takes responsibility for network availability within our network, however, we cannot be held liable for upstream problems outside of our network. While we try to maintain 99% uptimes, there are times when problems can occur outside of our control. In addition to these unexpected issues, periodic maintenance and security updates may make server access unavailable at certain times. These outages are typically brief in nature as we try to do maintenance during times that will affect the fewest number of our customers.

NETWORK OUTAGES OR UNSCHEDULED DOWNTIME:

This is any unplanned or unscheduled interruption in service availability during which the customer is unable to access the services as described in the section titled “Network Uptime” above. A network outage is defined as a period in which 100% packet loss to our network is experienced, which is determined to have been caused by a problem in Boss Creative’s network as confirmed by Boss Creative Downtime or outages are measured as the total length of time of the unplanned interruption in service availability in a calendar month. Scheduled Downtime is any Boss Creative scheduled interruption of services for the purpose of network upgrades or replacement of any equipment in order to provide you with better service.

SLA NETWORK VIOLATIONS:

Performance credit exclusions: The following are excluded from the monthly calculation of service availability: Scheduled downtime; Problems outside of Boss Creative’s network (upstream providers or client’s inbound connection) not affecting 100% loss of our network; Interruptions or failure of individual service caused by the client, their employees’ client’s customer, etc. to their service. These include inaccurate configuration, third party software, and client abuse or over utilization of resources, hacked servers, attacks, exploits, server hardware failures or other users on server to cause the server to overload which may cause downtime. We will do our best to remove such offenders immediately. Additionally, it is important to note that Boss Creative closely monitors IP addresses that attempt large numbers of unauthorized logins.
