Uptime is referred to as ‘time the system is functional’ and the customer is able to perform critical business functions. This refers to the use of the website service across Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. It includes the use of the Healthera App across Android and iOS devices.
Availability is calculated based on the following formula:
A = (T – M – D) / (T – M) x 100%
A = Availability
T = Total Monthly Minutes (1440 minutes per day)
M = Maintenance Time
D = Downtime
Credit Amount of Monthly Fee
> 97.9% but < 99.9%
> 96.9% but < 97.9%
7% + 1% per hour thereafter
Downtime is the total number of minutes that the platform cannot be accessed by 1 or more users. The calculation of Downtime minutes excludes time that the USER is unable to access the Hosted Services due to any of the following:
(a) Maintenance Time
(b) USER’s own Internet service provider
(c) Force Majeure event
(d) Any systemic Internet failures
(e) Enhanced Services
(f) Any failure in the USER’s own hardware, software or Network connection

Maintenance notice must be provided in writing to the customer for any scheduled maintenance at least 72 hours in advance.
