Service Level Agreement

Version 1.1 - July 2018

This DoorFlow Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) between NetNodes Limited (“NetNodes”, “us” or “we”) and users of the DoorFlow Services (“you”) governs the use of the DoorFlow Services under the provisions of the DoorFlow Terms of Service (the “Terms”).

Unless otherwise provided herein, this SLA is subject to the provisions of the Terms.

This SLA applies separately to each of your DoorFlow Accounts, as defined in the Terms.

1. DoorFlow Service Commitment: 99.95% Uptime

NetNodes will use commercially reasonable efforts to make your DoorFlow Services available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.95% during any monthly billing cycle (the “Service Commitment”). Subject to the SLA Exclusions, if we do not meet the Service Commitment, you will be eligible to receive a Service Credit.

A Monthly Uptime Percentage of 99.95% means that we guarantee you will experience no more than 21.56 min/month of Unavailability.

2. Definitions

“Maintenance” means scheduled Unavailability of the DoorFlow Services, as announced by us prior to the DoorFlow Services becoming Unavailable.

“Monthly Uptime Percentage” is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which the DoorFlow Services were Unavailable. Monthly Uptime Percentage measurements exclude downtime resulting directly or indirectly from any SLA Exclusion.

“Service Credit” means a credit denominated in pounds sterling (GBP), calculated as set forth below, that we may credit back to an eligible account.

“Unavailable” and “Unavailability” mean, for app services and databases, when the DoorFlow service is not running or not reachable due to NetNodes’ fault. This excludes (a) local site controllers that are unreachable or not running; and (b) members of a database cluster where the cluster as a whole is running and reachable.

“DoorFlow Service” means the web based services available in a browser at (including the API). This excludes CardPrint desktop card printing services and associated tools/applications.

3. Service Commitments and Service Credits

Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges due on your DoorFlow invoice for the monthly billing cycle in which the Unavailability occurred, applied proportionally to the Services that were Unavailable, in accordance with the schedule below:

For example, if DoorFlow is Unavailable for 25 minutes, you would be eligible for a Service Credit for 10% of that container’s usage for the month

We will apply any Service Credits only against future payments for the Services otherwise due from you. At our discretion, we may issue the Service Credit to the credit card you used to pay for the billing cycle in which the Unavailability occurred. Service Credits will not entitle you to any refund or other payment from NetNodes. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable monthly billing cycle is greater than one pound sterling (£1). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account.

4. Sole Remedy

Unless otherwise provided in the Terms, your sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability, non-performance, or other failure by us to provide the Services is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.

5. Credit Request and Payment Procedures

To receive a Service Credit, you must submit a claim by emailing To be eligible, the credit request must be received by us by the end of the second billing cycle after which the incident occurred and must include:

If the Monthly Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by us and is less than the Service Commitment, then we will issue the Service Credit to you within one billing cycle following the month in which your request is confirmed by us. Your failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify you from receiving a Service Credit.

6. SLA Exclusions

The Service Commitment does not apply to any Unavailability:

If availability is impacted by factors other than those used in our Monthly Uptime Percentage calculation, then we may issue a Service Credit considering such factors at our discretion.
