2. Severity Levels
|Support Severity Level||Definition|
|Critical||“Critical” Incident means an Error causing catastrophic failures that severely impact the Customer’s ability to conduct business. Customer’s systems are down or not functioning and business operations are severely disrupted.|
|Urgent||“Urgent” Incident means an Error causing major functionality to be degraded in which the Customer’s operation is disrupted but there is an ability to remain productive and maintain necessary business-level operations.|
|Normal||“Normal” Incident means an Error causing partial loss of non-critical functionality. The Error impairs some operations but the Customer can continue to function.|
|Low||“Low” Incident means a general usage question, cosmetic issues, request for future product enhancements or modifications|
An “Error” is a failure of the Workspot Platform to perform in accordance with the Documentation, subject to limitation and exclusions in the Agreement and the Incident Rejections below.
a. Level 1 Support and First Response to Incidents. Customer shall direct End Users to make all inquiries regarding the operation of the Workspot Hosted Virtual Desktop Service generally or in conjunction with an incident involving the Hosted Virtual Desktop Services requiring technical support (each an “Incident”) directly to Customer designated technical support personnel. For each Incident submitted to Customer by an End User, Customer (and not Workspot) has the obligation and responsibility to provide the necessary response and/or technical support directly to the End User. Customer shall diligently attempt to address and resolve all such Incidents. Only after an unsuccessful attempt at resolving an Incident and after Customer reasonably determines that the Incident is due to a failure of the Hosted Virtual Desktop Services, Customer may submit the Incident for resolution assistance to Workspot (via the below procedure) through its designated support contacts (“Designated Customer Contact”). The Designated Customer Contacts shall be Administrative Users who have been trained on the Workspot Platform and are familiar with the Documentation. A Designated Support Contact may report the issue to Workspot by initiating and submitting a technical support request via a Workspot contact mechanism (a “Support Ticket”), providing the following information for each Support Ticket: (i) Customer name and contact info; (ii) Designated Customer Contact name and contact information; (iii) Requested severity level; (d) a description of the Incident and reported Error; and (e) steps take to address/resolve and any additional information, if any, relevant to the Incident and reported Error.
b. Level 2 Support and Workspot Involvement. After receipt of a Support Ticket from a Designated Customer Contact, Workspot then will respond in accordance with the level of Support Services subscribed by Customer (i.e. Standard Support or Premium Support). Note that Workspot is not obligated to work on: (i) an Incident if there is insufficient information provided by Customer to facilitate investigation and analysis; (ii) an Incident that cannot be reproduced; (iii) an Incident related to the Workspot Hosted Virtual Desktop Service which has been modified by Customer or a third party (other than a representative of Workspot); (iv) an Incident related to use of the Workspot Hosted Virtual Desktop Service other than as specified by the Documentation or otherwise in breach of the Agreement; (v) an interoperability issue caused by third party software or devices and/or where the issue also occurs without the presence or operation of the Workspot Hosted Virtual Desktop Service; or (vi) any Incident attributable to any other cause external to the Workspot Cloud Services (such as External Software or Customer Content) or otherwise beyond Workspot’s reasonable control; (vii) any Incident attributable to a failure of Customer to implement, configure or operate a Customer Supplied IaaS in accordance with the Agreement and Documentation; or (viii) if Workspot has not been provided with requested administrative access to a Customer Supplied IasS (i.e. the same level of administrative access provided to Workspot with respect to a Bundled IaaS) (each an “Incident Rejection”). Workspot may identify an Incident as an Incident Rejection in its sole determination and Workspot’s failure to perform Support Services with respect to an Incident Rejection shall neither be deemed a deemed a breach of the Agreement nor a failure to respond to or resolve the Incident. Customer acknowledges and agrees that not all Errors can be corrected. Support tickets may be closed by Workspot if Workspot determines that the Incident or issue is not a failure of the Workspot Hosted Virtual Desktop Service to comply with the Documentation or if the Designated Customer Contact fails to respond to queries from Workspot regarding the Incident for more than ten (10) consecutive business days. Customer may re-open a closed technical support request if Customer has new information related to the Incident.
