Policies Agreements Terms




The terms set out herein apply to all use of the Cillco Service unless otherwise explicitly set out in the Cillco Subscription Form, the Software Service Agreement or otherwise agreed in writing between the Parties.
Cillco customers depend on stability and integrity with respect to access to our Services, as well as solutions and applications, maintained and supported by Cillco. Service stability is a key priority for Cillco in all operations.
This Service Level Agreement describes which expectation our Customers can have with respect to Service availability and error correction in the event of disruption of service and other support requests. The services under this Service Level Agreement will be available only for the appointed administrator users of the Customer who in turn will be responsible for managing service requests and inquiries from internal and external parties.

1.    Overall responsibilities to maintain availability and performance of the Services

Cillco undertakes to establish and maintain a service organization available to assist the Customer in a timely and professional manner in the event of software malfunction or other errors to the service and/or additional service requests made by the Customer. 
Even though Cillco cannot guarantee that the Service as defined in the Software Service Agreement will be performed error-free or uninterrupted, or that Cillco will be able to remedy errors or defects that occur in the Service, Cillco will use all reasonable efforts to ensure that all Customers have continued and reliable access to the Service. Consequently, Cillco will respond to the Customer service inquires in accordance with the service levels and routines as described in this Service Level Agreement.

2.    Service availability

Cillco is responsible for hosting, maintenance, and supervision of the Service, including all applications deployed through the service, including technical infrastructure, hosting and functional performance. In principle, the Service shall be available for the Customer all day all year, other than in the event of planned maintenance or scheduled downtime. 
Any planned downtime with effect on end user applications with an expected downtime of 15 minutes or more shall be communicated to the Customer a minimum of 3 working days in advance. Scheduled downtime shall be planned to time periods when expected use of the Software is at a minimum (e.g., nights).
In the case of any unexpected downtime, Cillco shall promptly investigate the root cause of the issue, and as soon as possible inform the customers through, including information about a plan of action and best estimate of time to completion. Cillco shall keep the Customer regularly informed with current status of the issue until the Service is restored. However, Cillco cannot be held liable for any costs or loss, direct or indirect, that the Customer might incur as a result of lack of availability of the Service.

Cillco undertakes to initiate action to correct software malfunctions and errors covered by the Cillco warranty as set out in the Software Service Agreement upon request of the Customer. 

Upon receipt of notification from the Customer, Cillco will initiate work based on the following priority schedule system:

Priority     LA     Definition

  1. Where the failure is caused by planned maintenance. Planned maintenance is maintenance of which notice has been given in advance to the Customer by Cillco. Usually Cillco will endeavor to give at least 1 weeks’ notice in writing of planned maintenance, but this may not always be possible in cases of emergency or upstream vendor maintenance.
  2. Where the failure is caused by the Customer, through either a failure to comply with the Customer obligations in this Service Level Agreement or the Software Service Agreement or a failure of equipment or utilities supplied or controlled by the Customer, or through a failure to follow the requisite change control and reporting obligations, hereunder where the failure is the result of modelling errors or similar circumstances controlled by the Customer..
  3. Where the failure is caused or extended by a failure by the Customer to fully assist Cillco in fault correction (for example by preventing or delaying access to Customer premises or where a designated Customer contact is unreachable using the agreed contact details).
