Services Protocol

  1. Uptime Percentage

We are dedicated to making the Services easy to access and to use. We will ensure that the Services will be available and operational at an annual uptime percentage of at least 99%, as measured over any calendar month (the “Uptime Percentage”). If we fail to meet the Uptime Percentage in any calendar month, and as long as you have complied with your obligations under these Terms, you may notify us of such failure by sending an email to support@ecowaterOS.com, and we will provide you with a service credit (usually extra free storage but also may be additional features and functionality offered without charge) (the “Service Credit”). The Service Credit is your sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by us to meet the Uptime Percentage.

We shall not be liable to you for any failure by us to meet the Uptime Percentage in circumstances where such failure to meet the Uptime Percentage is caused by: (i) our scheduled maintenance of our website; or (ii) the performance by us of any Enhancements.
