4.1. Service Level Agreement.

This SLA outlines the service level performance targets applicable only to the Kinvey Platform Services – Enterprise Edition on a single-tenant cloud instance.


4.1.1.     Definitions  “Downtime” means that the Product is offline and unavailable for your use. Downtime excludes time offline and unavailability resulting directly or indirectly from any Service Level Exclusion (defined below).  “Monthly Uptime Percentage” means the total number of minutes in a calendar month minus the number of minutes of Downtime suffered in such calendar month, divided by the total number of minutes in the calendar month. The applicable formula is:


Monthly Uptime Percentage =


(Total Minutes in Month) – (Total Minutes of Downtime)


X 100

(Total Minutes in a Month)


For any partial calendar month during which you have access to the Product, the Monthly Uptime Percentage will be calculated based on the entire calendar month, not just the portion for which you have access to the Product. The determination of whether the Product is available will be made in good faith by us based on monitoring performed by us where the Product is pinged no less than once every five minutes and the Product is determined to be unavailable if two consecutive pings are not answered.  “Service Level Credit” means the credit provided by us in accordance with section 4.1.2 (Subscription Service Availability and Credits).

4.1.2.     Subscription Service Availability and Credits  Service Levels. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Product available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.5% during any calendar month (the “Availability Service Level”). In the event we do not meet the Availability Service Level (a “Service Level Failure”), you will be eligible to receive a Service Level Credit as described below.


Standard Service Levels

Monthly Uptime Percentage

Service Level Credit Percentage

Less than 99.5% but equal to or greater than 99.0%


Less than 99.0% but equal to or greater than 95.0%


Less than 95% but equal to greater than 90%


Less than 90%

30%  Calculation of the Credit. Service Level Credits are calculated by multiplying (x) the applicable Service Level Credit Percentage by (y) the product of the total annual fees (as defined in an Order) actually received by us for the Kinvey Platform Services under an affected Order divided by twelve (12) months.  Maximum Service Level Credit. The Service Level Credits awarded in any month will not, under any circumstance, exceed thirty percent (30%) of the total fees actually paid by you to us for access to the Product under the affected Order for the affected month.  Termination For Repeated Service Level Failures. You may terminate the affected Order in the event the Monthly Uptime Percentage is less than ninety five percent (95%) in any two (2) consecutive month period or in any three (3) months during any twelve (12) month period. You will also be entitled to a refund on a pro-rata basis of any unused portion of any prepaid fees. 

4.1.3.     Service Level Credit Request and Payment Procedures  Requesting a Service Level Credit. To receive a Service Level Credit, you must submit a claim by email to Enterprise-support@kinvey.com (a “Service Level Credit Request”). To be eligible, the Service Level Credit Request must be received by us within thirty (30) days of the occurrence of the Service Level Failure and must include: (a) the words “Service Level Credit Request” in the subject line; and (b) the dates and times of each Service Level Failure that you are claiming, including the dates and times of the Downtime that caused the Service Level Failure.  Issuance of Service Level Credits. If the Monthly Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by us and is less than the applicable Availability Service Level, then we will issue the Service Level Credit to you within thirty (30) days following the month in which your request is confirmed by us.
