IT IS AGREED

  1. AGREEMENT

    1. In consideration of the client agreeing to pay the service provider the service fees in accordance with the payment terms, the service provider agrees to provide services to the client for the term in accordance with the provisions of this agreement.
    2. For each service selected by the client in the Order Form, a separate contract is entered into by the parties for that service on the terms of this agreement. For the avoidance of doubt, for example, if the client selects a phone service and a website service, a contract will be entered into by the parties for the phone service on the terms of this agreement and another contract will be entered into by the parties for the web service on the terms of this agreement.
    3. This agreement applies to services provided by the service provider and aims to ensure that the service provider is able to provide quality services to all of its customers and that no customer is disadvantaged by the conduct of others.
    4. Where a service would indicate or imply an unlimited component, ‘unlimited’ means that:
      1. the service and the client’s consumption of that service is not limited, however, ‘unlimited’ does not imply infinite resources are available;
      2. the client will not be billed for their rate of consumption of the associated service, nor will the service be limited in any way; and
      3. factors outside of the service provider’s control may influence the service provider’s ability to supply an unlimited service.
    5. If the client uses the service in a way that is found to be excessive or unreasonable, the service provider will give the client notice (usage notice) suggesting a more appropriate service, adjusting the price of the service to suit the client’s desired usage, or asking the client to curtail their usage.
    6. If after a usage notice, the client’s usage continues at an excessive or unreasonable level, the service provider may adjust the price of the service (at the service provider’s discretion, acting reasonably) and if the client is not satisfied, the client can terminate the service.
    7. What is considered excessive or unreasonable is at the service provider’s sole discretion.
    8. If there is any inconsistency between the parts of the Agreement, the order of priority, from highest to lowest, is:
      1. any special conditions defined by the Service Provider in the Order Form;
      2. any special conditions in the Product Terms;
      3. the remainder of the Product Terms;
      4. the Order Form; and
      5. these Terms of Service
  2. SERVICE PROVIDER’S OBLIGATIONS

    1. The service provider must provide the client with the services during business hours for the service fees.
    2. When the client requests the service provider to perform a task that is a part of the service, the service provider must, as soon as reasonably practicable, determine the time frame by which the service provider must perform that task and advise the client accordingly.
      1. Unless otherwise advised by the service provider, the task will be performed remotely.
      2. If the service provider classifies the task as:
        1. priority 1, the client will receive a response from the service provider within 1 business hour of the request;
        2. priority 2, the client will receive a response from the service provider within 4 business hours of the request;
        3. priority 3, the client will receive a response from the service provider within 8 business hours of the request; and
        4. priority 4, the service provider will schedule a time during business hours with the client to resolve the request.
        For the avoidance of doubt, it is agreed that “receive a response” means that the service provider will respond to the client within the time specified and thereafter attend to the task diligently with a view to completing it as soon as reasonably practical in the circumstances of the case and subject to availability of software and hardware and otherwise on the terms of this agreement.
    3. The service provider will use its reasonable efforts to meet any deadlines or milestones that the service provider promises to meet but will not be liable for any delay or failure to meet them.
    4. To the extent that the service provider’s provision of a service is impaired by:
      1. the client or its staff;
      2. a third-party;
      3. a failure or defect (not caused by the service provider) in hardware or software (not supplied by the service provider); or
      4. an event beyond the service provider’s reasonable control,
      then the service provider’s obligation to provide the service is suspended until the impairment is removed and the service provider will not be liable to the client in respect of any delay or failure to provide the service.
  3. CLIENT’S OBLIGATIONS

    1. General Obligations

      In order for the service provider to be able to provide the client with the services, the client must:

      2. provide a safe working environment for the service provider’s personnel;
      3. comply with all laws, regulations, policies and guidelines (including any applicable acceptable use policy that the service provider informs the client of);
      4. implement the service provider’s recommendations;
      5. ensure that any incumbent provider who is transitioning the service to the service provider makes available the information, resources and facilities required by the service provider to provide the service; and
      6. maintain regular and complete backups of all the client’s data.

        3. if none are specified, our current published or advertised fees for that service; or
        4. if there are no current published fees, at our time and materials rates for similar services; and
        5. the service fees will change at the end of every 12 months of the term of this agreement in accordance with the consumer price index
      3. If another party sells hardware, software or services to the service provider that the service provider provides to the client pursuant to this agreement, and that other party increases its prices charged to the service provider for that hardware, software or service, the service provider may subsequently also increase the fees charged to the client for that hardware or software to the extent that the party increased their prices charged to the service provider for that hardware or software.
      4. The following actions are not chargeable by the service provider:
        1. the client lodging a service request; and
        2. the first time the service provider reviews an invoice upon request from the client.

        1. on-site within 3 hours – $150.00 per call out; and
        2. on-site within 1 hour – $300.00 per call out.
      7. If the client requests for an escalation for remote work, and the service provider agrees to the escalation (for the avoidance of doubt the service provider can in its absolute discretion refuse the request), the task is deemed to be outside of the services and the client must pay an additional fee of $150.00 per call out for the task.
      8. If the client requests an escalation in the priority number as classified by the service provider under clause 2.2.2, and the service provider agrees to the escalation (for the avoidance of doubt the service provider can in its absolute discretion refuse the request), the client must pay an additional fee of $150.00 per escalation.
      9. Where the service provider’s personnel are delayed from performing a service due to a delay caused by the client, the service provider may charge the client:

      10. Where the service provider has to undertake additional work due to the refusal by the client to implement the service provider’s recommendations or as a direct result of work performed by a third party, that work is not covered by the product terms and the service provider may charge additional fees for that additional work at the rates set out in clause 3.2.5.
      11.
