- Availability. Panther shall make the Panther Subscription Service available 99.9% of the time, except as provided below.
“Covered Services” means AWS Lambda, AWS Athena, AWS S3, AWS Glue, AWS SQS, AWS DynamoDB, AWS SNS, AWS Cognito, AWS ECS.
Availability for Covered Services will be calculated per calendar month, as follows:
- “total” means the total number of minutes in the calendar month;
- “non-excluded” means downtime that is not excluded; and
- “excluded” means:
- Any downtime during planned maintenance (not to exceed 10 hours in any calendar month) for which Panther gives 2 business days or more hours’ notice in accordance with the Agreement or via the Panther shared slack channel.
- Any unavailability caused by circumstances beyond Panther’ reasonable control, including, without limitation, acts of God, acts of government, flood, fire, earthquakes, civil unrest, acts of terror, strikes or other labor problems (other than those involving Panther employees), third-party Internet Panther failures or delays (other than those Internet Suppliers under contract with Panther),
- Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) or Snowflake outages in Customer’s specific region or that otherwise affect Panther’ ability to provide the Panther Subscription Service, or unavailability caused by Customer’s conduct or error.
- Dropped logs, provided the Covered Services meet the 99.9% or other applicable availability amounts.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, for any availability that is reliant on AWS or Snowflake, availability shall be calculated based on the applicable availability provided by AWS or Snowflake with the same exclusions above.
For any partial month during which Customer subscribes to the Panther Subscription Service, availability will be calculated based on the entire month, not just the portion for which Customer subscribed.
- Service Availability Remedies. Should Panther fail to make the Panther Subscription Service available as set forth above, Customer may continue to use the Panther Subscription Service but receive a refund of 1/30th the monthly fee for each day the Panther Subscription Service is affected by making a claim in writing to Panther as described below. All claims of unavailability will be verified against Panther’ system records. Should Panther dispute any period of unavailability alleged by Customer, Panther will provide to Customer a record of Panther Subscription Service availability for the applicable period.
- Reporting, Claims and Notices. Panther will provide Customer SLA reports showing Panther Subscription Service availability upon Customer request and at most once per calendar year. To claim a remedy under this SLA, Customer shall send Panther a notice, via email addressed to [email protected] within 15 business days after the end of each calendar quarter. Claims may be made on a calendar-quarter basis only and must be submitted within 20 business days after the end of the applicable quarter, except where a Services subscription ends on a date other than the last day of a calendar quarter, in which case any claim related to that subscription must be submitted within 20 business days after the subscription end date. All claims will be verified against Panther’ system records. Should Panther dispute any period of unavailability alleged by Customer, Panther will provide to Customer a record of Panther Subscription Service availability for the applicable period. Panther will provide such records only in response to claims made by Customer in good faith.
