Hootsuite Enterprise Service Level Agreement
Last Modified: May 24, 2018
This Hootsuite Enterprise Service Level Agreement (the “SLA”) applies to Enterprise Services purchased from Hootsuite in an Authorization Form. This SLA is incorporated into, and forms part of, the terms applicable to your access to and use of the Hootsuite Enterprise Services (the “Terms”). Capitalized terms not defined in this SLA have the meanings given to them in the applicable Terms.
“API Interruptions” means interruptions due to independent Hootsuite integration partners, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and other Social Networks.
“Hootsuite Platform“ means Hootsuite’s proprietary software, content, text, images, media, and other materials delivered through our web platform www.hootsuite.com (including successor domain names and sites) and mobile applications.
“Service Availability” means the uptime of the Hootsuite Platform, and is measured by subtracting the total minutes of Service Interruption in a given month from the total minutes in such month, divided by the total minutes in such month and then multiplied by 100.
“Service Interruption” means, except for scheduled system maintenance, the period of time that the Hootsuite Platform is either (a) not available for Customer log-in or (b) substantially not functioning. API Interruptions and other circumstances beyond our control will not constitute Service Interruptions.
“Standard Support” means the support provided by Hootsuite help desk technicians in response to a ticket submitted by Customer through http://hootsuite.com/help.
The Hootsuite Platform will have a Service Availability of at least 99.9% of the time in any calendar month (the “Service Availability SLA”). Where reasonably possible, Hootsuite will provide at least 24 hours' advance notice to Customer of scheduled maintenance in excess of 30 minutes. If Hootsuite does not meet the Service Availability SLA, Customer will be eligible to receive the Service Credits described below. This Service Availability SLA states Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by Hootsuite to meet the Service Availability SLA.
