(a) process that Personal Data only on the written instructions of the Customer unless the Supplier is required by the laws of any member of the European Union or by the laws of the European Union applicable to the Supplier to process Personal Data (Applicable Laws). Where the Supplier is relying on laws of a member of the European Union or European Union law as the basis for processing Personal Data, the Supplier shall promptly notify the Customer of this before performing the processing required by the Applicable Laws unless those Applicable Laws prohibit the Supplier from so notifying the Customer;
(b) ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data, appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures (those measures may include, where appropriate, encrypting Personal Data, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of its systems and services, ensuring that availability of and access to Personal Data can be restored in a timely manner after an incident, and regularly assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organisational measures adopted by it);

(g) notify the Customer without undue delay on becoming aware of a Personal Data breach;
(h) as soon as reasonably practicable on or after the date that is 60 days after the termination of the data processing services or upon the Customer’s reasonable request, anonymise all the Personal Data unless Data Protection Requirements prevent the Supplier from anonymising all or part of the Personal Data disclosed. In such case, the Supplier agrees to preserve the confidentiality of the Personal Data retained by it and that it will only actively process such Personal Data after such date in order to comply with applicable laws;
(i) the Customer may request a copy of the Personal Data from the Supplier up to but excluding the date that is 60 days after the termination of the data processing services.
(j) maintain complete and accurate records and information to demonstrate its compliance with this clause 9 and allow for audits by the Customer or the Customer’s designated auditor; and
(k) inform the Customer immediately upon becoming aware of being asked to do anything that would infringe the Applicable Laws.
9.6 The Supplier intends to engage Subprocessors to delegate part of its processing activities and the Customer consents to the appointment of those Subprocessors which are included in the list of Subprocessors the Supplier maintains online (at such website address as the Supplier may notify to the Customer from time to time) and the Supplier must inform the Customer of any intended changes to this list which, for the avoidance of doubt, may be done inter alia via in-system notifications.
9.7 The Supplier confirms that for those Subprocessors referred to in clause 9.6, it has entered or (as the case may be) will enter into a written agreement substantially on that Subprocessor’s standard terms of business with each agreement with a Subprocessor being in accordance with the Data Protection Requirements.

9.8 The Customer acknowledges that the Supplier’s system may integrate into other software systems that are owned by third party data processors being systems that the Customer has contracted with for the provision of services. The Supplier, on receipt of instructions from the Customer, may transfer Personal Data to and otherwise interact with third party data processors. The Customer agrees that if and to the extent such transfers occur, the Customer is responsible for entering into separate contractual arrangements with such third party data processors binding them to comply with obligations in accordance with Data Protection Requirements. For the avoidance of doubt, such third party data processors are not Subprocessors.
9.9 The Customer and the Supplier acknowledge that for the purposes of the Data Protection Legislation the responsibility for complying with a subject access request lies with the Customer as Data Controller. The Supplier will pass on any subject access request to the Customer as soon as is reasonably practicable and will notify the data subject that has made the subject access request once this has been done.
9.10 The Supplier may, at any time on not less than 30 days notice, revise this clause 9 by replacing it with any applicable controller to processor standard clauses or similar terms forming party of an applicable certification scheme (which shall apply when replaced by attachment to this Agreement) provided that any such revised clause shall comply with the Data Protection Requirements.

This FaultFixers Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) between FaultFixers Technologies Ltd. (“FaultFixers”, “us” or “we”) and users of the FaultFixers Services (“you”) governs the use of the FaultFixers Services under the provisions of the FaultFixers Terms of Service (the “Terms”).
Unless otherwise provided herein, this SLA is subject to the provisions of the Terms.
- FaultFixers Service Commitment: 99.0% Uptime
FaultFixers will use commercially reasonable efforts to make your FaultFixers Services available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.0% 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.
“Maintenance” means scheduled Unavailability of the Services, as announced by us prior to the Services becoming Unavailable.
“Monthly Uptime Percentage” is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of minutes during the month in which the FaultFixers Services were Unavailable. Monthly Uptime Percentage measurements exclude downtime resulting directly or indirectly from any SLA Exclusion.
“Service Credit” means a credit denominated in pound sterling, calculated as set forth below, that we may credit to an eligible account.
“Unavailable” and “Unavailability” mean, for any app or web-based FaultFixers interface, when your service or database is not running or not reachable due to FaultFixers’ fault.
- Service Commitments and Service Credits
Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges due on your FaultFixers invoice for the monthly billing cycle (or monthly prorated invoice if you are on an annual billing cycle) in which the Unavailability occurred, applied proportionally to the Services that were Unavailable, in accordance with the schedule below:
- For Monthly Uptime Percentage less than 99.0% but equal to or greater than 98.0%, you will be eligible for a Service Credit of 10% of the charges attributable to the affected resources.
- For Monthly Uptime Percentage less than 98.0%, you will be eligible for a Service Credit of 20% of the charges attributable to the affected resources
We will apply any Service Credits only against future payments for the Services otherwise due from you. Service Credits will not entitle you to any refund or other payment from FaultFixers. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable monthly billing cycle is greater than one dollar (£1 GBP). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account.
- 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.
- Credit Request and Payment Procedures
To receive a Service Credit, you must submit a claim by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. To be eligible, the credit request must be received by us no later than 60 days after which the incident occurred and must include:
- the words “SLA Credit Request” in the subject line;
- the dates and times of each Unavailability incident that you are claiming;
- the account; and
- logs that document the errors and corroborate your claimed outage (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks).
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 30 days 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.
- SLA Exclusions
The Service Commitment does not apply to any Unavailability:
- Caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including any force majeure event, Internet access, or problems beyond the demarcation point of the FaultFixers network;
- That results from any actions or inactions of you or any third party;
- That results from the equipment, software or other technology of you or any third party (other than third party equipment within our direct control);
- That results from failures of FaultFixers Services not attributable to Unavailability; or
- That results from any Maintenance.
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.
