If the suspension was based on the Customer’s breach of the Customer’s obligations under this Agreement, then WNL may continue to charge the Customer the fees for the Services during the suspension, and may charge the Customer a reasonable reinstatement fee upon reinstatement of the Services, which shall be at WNL’s sole discretion.

2. If WNL does not meet the SLO, and if Customer meets its obligations under this SLA, Customer will be eligible to receive the Financial Credits described below.

4. Capitalized terms used in this SLA, but not defined in this SLA, have the meaning stated in the Agreement.

Definitions

The following definitions apply to the SLA:

"Covered Service" means the provision of Network Connectivity, a component of the Services.

"Downtime" means more than a 10% Error Rate for the Network Connectivity. Downtime is measured based on server-side Error Rate.

"Downtime Period" means a period of five or more consecutive minutes of Downtime. Partial minutes will not be counted towards any Downtime Periods.

"Error Rate" means packets which are registered onto the network but are not delivered to the programmed end point.

Repeated identical requests do not count toward the Error Rate.

"Financial Credit" means the credit amount based on the percentage of the monthly bill for the Covered Service in the table below.

“Monthly Uptime Percentage” Percentage of the monthly bill for the Covered Service that will be credited to future monthly Customer bills

99% to < 99.9% 10%

95% to < 99% 25%

< 95% 50%

"Monthly Uptime Percentage" means total number of minutes in a month, minus the number of minutes of Downtime suffered from all Downtime Periods for the Covered Service in a month, divided by the total number of minutes in a month.

"Valid Requests" means requests that conform to the Documentation, and that would normally result in a non-error response.
