  • Monthly Uptime Percentage” means the total number of minutes in a calendar month minus the number of minutes of Downtime suffered in such calendar month, divided by the total number of minutes in the calendar month. The applicable formula is:


Monthly Uptime Percentage = ( (Total Minutes in Month) – (Total Minutes of Downtime) ) X 100
(Total Minutes In Month)


For any partial calendar month during which the applicable Customer has access to the Zift Platform, the Monthly Uptime Percentage shall be calculated based on the entire calendar month, not just the portion for which the Customer has access to the Zift Platform. The determination of whether the Zift Platform is available will be made in good faith by Zift based on monitoring performed by Zift.

  • Service Level Credit” means the credit provided by Zift in accordance with Section 2 (Subscription Service Availability and Credits) below.
  • Service Level Exclusions” Downtime does not include unavailability, suspension or termination of the Zift Platform that result from: (a) termination or suspension of the Zift Platform described in Section 10.4 (Suspension of Services) of the Agreement; (b) factors outside of Zift’s reasonable control, including force majeure events, denial of service attacks, or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of Zift and its third party hosting providers; (c) any actions or inactions of Customer or any third party; (d) Customer infrastructure, equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology or Customer’s use of the Zift Platform in a manner inconsistent with the Documentation; (e) any scheduled maintenance of the Zift Platform occurring in the ordinary course of business; (f) Zift’s suspension and termination of a Customer’s right to use the Zift Platform in accordance with the Agreement; or (g) license restrictions or other limitations as set forth in each Order Form.
  1. Subscription Service Availability and Credits
  • Service Levels. Zift will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Zift Platform available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage of at least 99.5% during any calendar month (the “Availability Service Level”). In the event Zift does not meet the Standard Availability Service Level (a “Service Level Failure”), Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Level Credit as described below.

Standard Service Levels

Monthly Uptime Percentage Service Level Credit Percentage
Less than 99.5% but equal to or greater than 98.5% 5%
Less than 98.5% but equal to or greater than 97.5% 10%
Less than 97.5% but equal to or greater than 96% 20%
Less than 96% 30%


  • Calculation of the Credit. Service Level Credits are calculated by multiplying (x) the applicable Service Level Credit Percentage by (y) the product of the total annual Subscription Fees (as defined in an Order Form) actually paid by Customer to Zift for the Zift Platform under an affected Order Form divided by twelve (12) months.
  • Maximum Service Level Credit. The Service Level Credits awarded in any month shall not, under any circumstance, exceed thirty percent (30%) of the total Subscription Fees actually paid by Customer to Zift for access to the Zift Platform under the affected Order Form for the affected month.
  1. Service Level Credit Request and Payment Procedures
  • Requesting a Service Level Credit. To receive a Service Level Credit, Customer must submit a claim by email to service@ziftsolutions.com (a “Service Level Credit Request”). To be eligible, the Service Level Credit Request must be received by Zift within ninety (90) days of the occurrence of the Service Level Failure and must include: (a) the words “Service Level Credit Request” in the subject line; and (b) the dates and times of each Service Level Failure that Customer is claiming, including the dates and times of the Downtime that caused the Service Level Failure.
  • Issuance of Service Level Credits. If the Monthly Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by Zift and is less than the applicable Availability Service Level, then Zift will issue the Service Level Credit to Customer within thirty (30) days following the month in which Customer’s request is confirmed by Zift. Customer’s failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify Customer from receiving a Service Level Credit. Zift will notify Customer of the amount of any Service Level Credit, which shall be applied against future amounts owed by Customer. Service Level Credits will not entitle Customer to any refund or other payment from Zift. Service Level Credits are not payable in cash and will only be applied against future amounts owed by Customer to Zift.
  • Sole and Exclusive Remedy. The Service Level Credit is Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and Zift’s sole and exclusive liability for a Service Level Failure.
  • Notwithstanding the above, should Zift fail to achieve at least 95% general availability over two consecutive calendar quarters, Customer shall have the option to terminate the Services for cause, in which case Zift will refund to Customer any prepaid fees for the remainder of its Term after the effective date of termination.

  3. Roles of the Parties; Processing of Personal Data by Customer and Zift.
    • As between Zift and Customer, Customer is the Data Controller of Personal Data and Zift is the Data Processor of Personal Data. Zift shall Process Personal Data only as a Data Processor acting at Customer’s direction. Zift shall not retain, use, or disclose Personal Data for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of performing the Services as described in the Agreement and this DPA, including retaining, using, or disclosing Personal Data for a commercial purpose other than providing the Services.
    • Customer acknowledges that an Authorized Partner of Customer may upload Personal Data (such as contact data for sales leads) to the Zift Platform through the Partner Portal in connection with the Authorized Partner’s use of the Services, and that Zift will Process that Personal Data on the Authorized Partner’s behalf in accordance with the terms of a separate agreement between Zift and the Authorized Partner. The Authorized Partner may choose to make certain of that Personal Data available to Customer through the Zift Platform (such as when the Authorized Partner registers a sales lead or deal with Customer), in which case: (a) Customer acknowledges that the Authorized Partner and Customer are each Data Controllers with respect to that Personal Data, and (b) notwithstanding any terms in this DPA, Zift will also process that Personal Data at that Authorized Partner’s direction in accordance with that separate agreement.
    • Customer agrees that (i) it shall comply with its obligations as a Data Controller under Data Protection Laws in respect of its Processing of Personal Data and any Processing instructions it issues to Zift; and (ii) it has provided notice and obtained all consents and rights necessary under Data Protection Laws for Zift to Process Personal Data and provide the Services. Customer shall immediately notify Zift and cease Processing Personal Data in the event any required authorization or legal basis for Processing is revoked or terminates.
    • Zift shall Process Personal Data only for the purposes described in the Agreement or in accordance with Customer’s other documented lawful instructions unless Processing is required by applicable law, in which case Zift shall to the extent permitted by applicable laws inform Customer of that legal requirement before the relevant Processing. Customer hereby instructs Zift to Process Personal Data as necessary in order to provide and improve the Services, to fulfill its obligations under the Agreement and this DPA, and for legitimate purposes relating to the operation, support and/or use of the Services such as billing, account management, and technical support.
    • The details of the Processing of Personal Data, including the subject matter, duration, nature, and purposes of the Processing; the categories of Data Subjects; and the types of Personal Data are set forth in Schedule 1 to this DPA.
  4. Data Security. Each Party shall take appropriate technical and organizational measures against unauthorized or unlawful Processing of Personal Data or its accidental loss, destruction, or damage. Zift shall implement and maintain commercially reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to protect Personal Data from Data Breaches, to help ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the Personal Data and Processing systems, in accordance with Zift’s security standards, including, the security measures described in Schedule 2 to this DPA. Notwithstanding the above, Customer agrees that it is responsible for its secure use of the Services, including securing its account authentication credentials, protecting the security of Personal Data when in transit, and taking any appropriate steps to securely encrypt or backup Personal Data, as well as the security obligations outlined in the Agreement.
  5. Data Breach Response. Zift shall notify Customer without undue delay and no later than 48 hours after becoming aware of any Data Breach. Zift shall make reasonable efforts to identify the cause of the Data Breach and shall undertake such steps as Zift deems necessary and reasonable in order to remediate the cause of such Data Breach. Zift shall provide information related to the Data Breach as it becomes available to Customer in a timely fashion and as reasonably necessary for Customer to maintain compliance with Data Protection Laws.
  6. Confidentiality of Data Processing. Zift shall ensure that any person who is authorized by Zift to Process Personal Data (including its staff, agents, and subcontractors) shall be under an appropriate obligation of confidentiality.
  7. Return or Deletion of Data. Upon termination or expiration of the Agreement, Zift shall (at Customer’s election) delete or return, if feasible, to Customer all Personal Data remaining in its possession or control, save that this requirement shall not apply: (i) to the extent Zift is required by applicable law to retain some or all of the Personal Data; (ii) if Zift is Processing the Personal Data on behalf of an Authorized Partner acting as a co-Data Controller pursuant to a separate data protection agreement; or (iii) to Personal Data Zift has archived on back-up systems, which will be deleted in accordance with Zift’s standard data retention policies and procedures. In all such cases, Zift shall maintain the Personal Data securely and limit Processing to the purposes that prevent deletion or return of the Personal Data. The terms of this DPA shall survive for so long as Zift continues to retain any Personal Data.
  8. Sub-processing. Customer agrees that this DPA constitutes Customer’s written general authorization for Zift to engage Sub-processors to Process Personal Data on Customer’s behalf, including the Sub-processors. Zift shall: (i) take commercially reasonable measures to ensure that Sub-processors have the requisite capabilities to Process Personal Data in accordance with this DPA; (ii) enter into a written agreement with the Sub-processor imposing data protection terms that require the Sub-processor to protect the Personal Data to the standard required by Data Protection Laws; (iii) remain responsible for its compliance with the obligations of this DPA and for any acts or omissions of the Sub-processor that cause Zift to breach any of its obligations under this DPA; and (iv) notify Customer in the event that it intends to engage different or additional Sub-processors that will Process Personal Data pursuant to this DPA, which may be done by email or through another mechanism made available by Zift to Customer that enables Customer to receive such notifications. Customer must raise any objection to such Sub-processors within thirty (30) calendar days of Zift’s notification. Customer’s objection shall only be effective if submitted to Zift in writing, specifically describing Customer’s reasonable belief that Zift’s proposed use of the Sub-processor(s) will materially, adversely affect Customer’s compliance with applicable Data Protection Laws. In any such case, the parties will make reasonable efforts to reconcile the matter. In the event Customer’s concern cannot be resolved, Zift may terminate the Agreement with no penalty and Customer shall immediately pay all fees and costs accrued or payable to Zift prior to the effective date of termination.
