Web Maintenance Service Level Agreement

Website Maintenance and Support Terms

The use of this Website (www.ebpearls.com.au) is governed by the policies, terms, and conditions set forth below. Please read them carefully as your use of this site, your placement of an order, or your submittable of any purchase order to EB Pearls.

You agree to be bound by and accept this agreement as applicable to your purchase of product(s) from www.ebpearls.com.au. These terms and conditions are subject to change without prior written notice at any time, in EB Pearls Pty Ltd sole discretion.

Once a credit card has been secured by our sales department for a support, training or discovery request for a problem you’re inquiring about, your project will be put in the EB Pearls work queue and responded to within 2-5 business days. Work will commence on your project based on Priority and who paid first.

Please note that ticket ‘response times’ are based on the service level agreement (SLA) response times that you’ve purchased (P1–P5).

Response Times | Website Maintenance:

 

MORE on Response Times:

We’ll respond to general requests within your SLA response time with our estimated hours for completion. For new projects, we’ll contact you within your SLA response time to schedule an appointment so we can determine your requirements and provide an estimate for your project. Support requests will be placed within the EB Pearls work queue based on the SLA response times you’ve purchased.

Non Maintenance Response Time

If you do not wish to purchase a website maintenance plan, you can still submit service requests by emailing us at [email protected]  At that time your support request will be flagged as a ‘Non Maintenance No Support Request’ and your ticket will be placed at the end of our support work queue.    Most non-maintenance support tickets requests are reviewed within 5-10 business days or approximately two weeks.   This does not mean once we respond, your issue will be resolved. Every Non Maintenance Support Request will get ONE RESPONSE  from a support technician within 5-10 business days. If you require 3 responses, then your ticket could take 30 days to resolve for all inquiries that do not have a maintenance and support plan in place.

MORE on Emergency Support:

Before initiating an emergency, please be aware emergency support requires our staff to respond after hours and postpone existing projects to focus 100% on the emergency situation. Except for EB Pearls hosting outages, initiating emergency support is billed by the hour regardless of fault. Once emergency support is initiated all hours are billed at our emergency rate, unless you re-schedule support for a later date.

MORE on monthly plans

Customers have the ability to increase the monthly hours in their website maintenance plan based on what we determine to be your average hours per/month.

Your maintenance plan’s hours can be accumulated in the next month. If you have an existing project that exceeds the hours in your website maintenance plan you have the option of paying the difference based on your discounted rate.

Contact us for details.

Support Center

Please be aware that by posting a request in our support center, you’ll be initiating the use of your website maintenance plan’s hours. If your website maintenance plan’s hours have been exhausted for the month, then you’ll be billed at a discounted rate, based on your current website maintenance plan. Only support requests related to rare server outages or basic sales inquiries will be exempt from this rule.

Support hours used for the month:

Please contact our staff if you would like to know how many support hours you’ve used for a month.
