This Service Level Agreement ("SLA") describes the uptime for OVP and under which circumstances You are eligible for Service Credits. This SLA applies separately to each account using OVP.

We reserve the right to change the terms of this SLA.

Flowplayer will use commercially reasonable efforts to make OVP available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.5% during any monthly billing cycle (the "Service Commitment"). In the event the availability of OVP is below the Service Commitment, You may be eligible to receive Service Credits as described below.
"Monthly Uptime Percentage" means uptime of OVP measured by Flowplayer using Pingdom Uptime Check of the web service responsible for displaying videos www.pingdom.com/product/uptime-monitoring.
Downtime in excess of 5 consecutive minutes will count as downtime (shorter downtimes than 5 consecutive minutes will not be counted as downtime).
"Service Credit(s)" means a credit, calculated as set forth under the Section "Service Credits" in this SLA, that Flowplayer may credit to an eligible OVP account holder in the event the availability of OVP is below the Service Commitment.
Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges paid by You for OVP during the billing cycle under which the availability of OVP was below the Service Commitment, in accordance with the table below.
- Monthly Uptime Percentage
- Service Credit
- Equal to or greater than 99.0% but less than 99.5%
- 10% of the total charges paid by You for OVP during the billing cycle under which the availability of OVP was below the Service Commitment.
- Less than 99.0%
- 20% of the total charges paid by You for OVP during the billing cycle under which the availability of OVP was below the Service Commitment.
Service Credits are Your sole and exclusive remedy in the event that the availability of OVP is below the Service Commitment. You may not claim additional damages or terminate the Contract due to the availability of OVP being below the Service Commitment. Furthermore, Flowplayer's total liability to pay Service Credits shall never exceed twenty (20) percent of the total charges paid by You for OVP during the billing cycle under which the availability of OVP was below the Service Commitment.
