8.SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
8.1 The standard service level agreement PGi provides for its audio conferencing services and hosted web portal is as follows: PGi will maintain a 99.9% platform availability for conference bridging and for PGi web hosted portal. “Availability” or “available” is defined as the time that a service is operational and available for use by You. Calculation: Platform availability is calculated monthly per service as a percentage by dividing the number of hours the platform is available during the applicable month by the total number of hours in the applicable month, excluding in all cases Service Outage Time. Platform outage time is based on the total (scheduled and unscheduled) hourly outage time across a service.

8.3 Performance quality. PGi will provide conference calling services at a 99% success rate. “Success” is defined as no material degradation in a conference call. Such success rate is measured by the number of trouble tickets raised against the number of conference calls that have taken place.
8.4 Customer support. Customer Support is available 24 x 7, 365 days per year.
8.5 Remedy. In the event that PGi breaches the Committed Service Availability for three consecutive months or for any four months in any six month period, then You may terminate this Agreement without further obligation as to its Minimum Commitment.
