Introduction and Scope

Introduction

Unless otherwise stated, this Maintenance and Support Policy for SPORIFY End Users applies only to maintenance and support for the SPORIY web application.

Definitions

  1. “Defects” means defects in the distribution media or material differences between the operation of the Supported Product and the description of the operation of the Supported Product as provided in the technical documentation issued with the Supported Product.

  2. “End User” means (i) a party who has obtained one or more Supported Product(s) from CorrIT Ltd and (ii) is licensed to use the Supported Product(s) solely for its internal business operations and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the SaaS Agreement.

  3. “SaaS agreement” means (i) a written mutually-executed SaaS agreement between CorrIT Ltd and End User that governs End User’s use of the Supported Product.

  4. “Severity Levels” means the level assigned by CorrIT Ltd to categorise the type of request or Defect reported by End User to CorrIT Ltd to indicate the severity of an event applicable to the Supported Products.

  5. “Mature Phase” means a Minor Version or Major Version of a Supported Product that has been designated by CorrIT Ltd as being in the mature phase of its lifecycle in the then current CorrIT Ltd Product Life Cycle guide.

There are three levels of severity:

  1. “Severity 1” means that the reported Defect is that the production system is down.

  2. “Severity 2” means that the reported Defect is that there is a loss of service resulting in restricted operations.

  3. “Severity 3” means that the system is operative and the Defect concerns cosmetic issues or issues that are a matter of inconvenience.

Applicability of the SaaS Agreement.

All Support Products (including any Updates) along with any other products, documentation and media delivered to End User will be subject to the terms and conditions of the SaaS Agreement. Any inconsistency between this Support Policy for CorrIT Ltd End Users and the SaaS Agreement will be determined by giving precedence to the SaaS Agreement except where it is expressly stated otherwise.

Support Policy Updates or Discontinuance of Support Product.

This Support Policy for CorrIT Ltd End Users is subject to change at CorrIT Ltd’ discretion. Updated policy documents will be published from time to time on the Policies section of the SPORIFY website. In the event CorrIT Ltd revises or updates the Support Policy for End Users in a manner that would result in a significant reduction in the level of the support services provided for the Supported Products, or CorrIT Ltd discontinues support for one or more Supported Products for which End User has purchased support, then such changes will not apply during any then current annual Support Period purchased by End User (“Current Annual Maintenance Period”). Such changes will take effect at the start of the annual Support Period immediately following CorrIT Ltd’ release of the updated Support Policy (“Next Annual Maintenance Period”) or, in the case of discontinuation of support, at the expiration of the Current Annual Maintenance Period. Updates to the lifecycle status of any Supported Product will not be considered a policy change under this paragraph or a discontinuation of support.
