4. Our Support Response and Resolution Commitment

4.1. Issues Classification

We will assign a priority level (Severity 1, Severity 2, Severity 3, or Severity 4) to each Issue, according to the criteria described in the following:

Severity 1.

Customer cannot use most or all of a product or service (i.e., most pages in the product are not loading or displaying an error message). Data corruption or loss has occurred or will occur.

Severity 2.

Customer is prevented from executing one or more critical business processes (for example: Cloud Publishing, CCMS) for a substantial number of users, or Services are usable with limited capabilities and/or intermittent interruptions which have serious business Impact.

Severity 3.

Primary product functionality is severely impacted and unusable. Customers are unable to utilize a common feature to its fullest ability. Data may not be displayed as expected but is not lost. There is no commercially reasonable workaround for customers.

Severity 4.

Some customers (not all) are receiving intermittent errors on product pages or cannot use the product in possibly obscure ways. The product may be loading slowly or partially (missing images), and there is a workaround that customers can use.

Note On Issue Submission: When submitting a ticket customers should use their best judgment to identify the severity of the issue. For example, for a Severity 1 you need not confirm with each one of your users – a healthy sanity check with a few different colleagues in different locations (to rule out local internet issues) is sufficient. Upon engagement Heretto will evaluate the situation and may in its discretion reclassify an issue to the appropriate level.

4.2. Issue Response and Resolution Times

We commit to the following response and resolution times:


5. Recovery Point Objective

In the event of a significant service incident, the maximum Recovery Point Objective is 24 hours. Customer data is backed up daily at the same time.

6. Services Availability

6.1. Availability Percentage

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the Services are available (i.e., accessible and usable) at the Required Monthly Availability. If we fail to meet the Required Monthly Availability, we will issue a service credit equal to the applicable credit % for each support package as outlined in the table below, multiplied by the prorated monthly subscription cost related to the impacted service. The credit can be applied to the next subscription services invoice or to a Heretto Professional Services invoice.
