- Availability of the SmartEO Service
- Availability measurement
- GEL monitors the achieved Availability of the SmartEO Service each calendar month (each a "Period"), based on data originating from the SmartEO hosting environment. The achieved Availability is the percentage of Availability Time during each Period that the SmartEO Service is available, calculated as follows:
Total minutes of Availability Time during the Period – (Downtime – Permitted Downtime)
Total minutes of Availability Time during the Period
- 5.2 Target Availability
- 5.2.1 The SmartEO Service has a target availability of 99% (the "Target Availability").

- 5.3.2 GEL's obligations pursuant to Clause 5.3.1 shall constitute the Customer's sole remedy with respect to GEL's non-compliance with this SLA.
- 5.3.3 Notwithstanding and without prejudice to Clause 5.3.2, GEL's liability in the event of a default of the Target Availability shall under all circumstances be limited to the Customer's proportionate share of any service credit or similar compensation that GEL may receive from its hosting provider in relation to the same default/defaults.
- GEL utilizes industry-standard automated tool(s) to monitor and measure the Availability of the SmartEO Service. GEL reserves the right to utilize and implement any measurement and monitoring tools and procedures as it reasonably determines are required to properly and accurately measure and report GEL's performance of the SmartEO Service against the applicable Service Levels.
- data frequency etc.
- GEL will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the SmartEO Data is provided to the Customer through the API in accordance with the target intervals and frequency set out in the Order for the relevant Site. If no specific interval and frequency is stated for a particular Site, the target intervals and frequency are 15 Minutes and 15 Minutes respectively. For the avoidance of doubt, the Customer accepts and acknowledges that the SmartEO Data frequency and intervals may vary from time to time due to e.g. network latency, hardware errors, user errors or other circumstances outside of GEL's control, and that GEL does not warrant or represent that the SmartEO Data at all times will be provided in accordance with the target intervals and frequencies.
