6. Support

All support requests by Partner will be logged after which Interana will perform an initial diagnosis and determine as far as reasonably practical the source of any problem which may have led to the support request.  All response and resolution times shall commence at the beginning of the next business day for support requests that are logged during non-business hours. The below table defines Support Request Priority Levels and the Guaranteed Response and Resolution Times for each Priority Level. These Committed Response and Resolution Times apply only to Support Levels identified in Section 2 as including Committed Response and Resolution Times.

4 A question about Interana Software usage or request for product enhancement. 1 business day 1 business day None None

7. Bug fixing

Interana will investigate incident reports concerning suspected problems with Interana Software provided that (a) Partner sends Interana a written report, which includes evidence of the suspected Issue, and (b) the incident can be reproduced or reasonably confirmed by Interana.  Interana will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly correct the Issue or provide a workaround to permit Partner to use the Interana Software substantially in conformance with the applicable Documentation.  Should an Issue not be resolved quickly or for bugs that require further investigation, the procedures set forth in Section 6 of these Maintenance and Support terms and conditions shall be invoked to engage the appropriate resources

8. Escalation procedures

With regard to Issues submitted to Escalation Procedures, an action plan will be developed by the Interana support team and communicated to Partner. When an escalated Issue has been resolved, the request for assistance will be considered closed upon the mutual agreement of the parties, such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld, delayed or conditioned. An Issue will not be considered resolved until one of the following activities has been completed:

  1. a resolution to the problem is obtained to Partner's reasonable satisfaction;
  2. a computer software code change in the form of a patch or a new revision that corrects the problem without causing additional problems has been delivered to Partner, successfully installed and is working;
  3. a short term workaround is delivered and accepted by Partner, though such acceptance shall not absolve Interana from any obligation to provide a long term solution if required; or
  4. an engineering commitment is made, upon Partner's agreement, to correct the problem in a future release of the Interana Software.

9. Excluded services

Interana shall not be obligated to fix any Issue or problem:

  1. where the Interana Software is not used for its intended purpose; or
  2. where the Interana Software has been altered, damaged, modified or incorporated into other software in a manner not approved by Interana; or
  3. where the Interana Software is a release that is no longer supported by Interana; or 
  4. which is caused by User's or a third party’s software or equipment or by User's negligence, abuse, misapplication, or use of the Interana Software other than as specified in the Documentation; or
  5. where fixing the problem would require changes to User's hardware.

If Interana determines that it has no obligation to fix the reported incident for one of the reasons stated above, the parties may, in their discretion, enter into a separate agreement authorizing Interana to provide additional services at a rate that is mutually agreed by the Parties.

10. Remote management services

Interana will perform Remote Management Services if the customer has a Support Level which includes them. These services include initial cluster implementation, post-implementation new data ingest configuration, change management, updates, monitoring, education and ongoing analytic collaboration subject to the limitations specified in the Order Form, Entitlements and Edition specifications at www.interana.com/r/editions

11. Remote management service access

Partner acknowledges that performance by Interana of Remote Management Services require administrative and network access for Interana personnel and tools to the customer hosting environment where Interana Software is deployed and agrees to provide such access as a condition of receiving such services.  Partner also acknowledges that these services require Interana to monitor its software as installed in the customer hosting environment and agrees to allow such monitoring including the automated transfer of usage, performance, and error logging. Partner further acknowledges that these services require Interana to remotely update its software in the customer hosting environment and agrees to allow such updates to take place at Interana's discretion.

12. Staging

Partner acknowledges that the installation of Updates may introduce Issues, performance problems or affect a customer’s data.  Accordingly, the customer is encouraged to install Updates on test or staging systems to determine suitability for production use.

13. Term; Termination

Subject to the terms and conditions set forth in these Maintenance and Support terms and conditions and the Agreement, and payment by Partner of the corresponding Fees, Maintenance and Support shall be provided to Partner during the period ending the earlier of the end of the applicable License Term, or the period specified in the corresponding Order Form.

14. End of Life Policy

Partner acknowledges that new features may be added to the Interana Software based on market demand and technological innovation.  Accordingly, as Interana develops enhanced versions of the Interana Software, Interana may cease to maintain and support older versions.  Interana will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Partner of an Interana Software undergoing the transition from supported to unsupported status at least six (6) months in advance of an Interana Software Major Version end of life (“EOL”).  Maintenance and Support will be available during such six (6) month period only in connection with an active Software License.

15. Definitions

  1. “Issue” means an incident that investigation reveals is caused by the Interana Software’s failure to perform materially in accordance with the specifications set forth in the Documentation for such Interana Software.  An incident will not be classified as an Issue if (a) the relevant Interana Software is not used for its intended purpose; (b) the incident is caused by Partner's or a third party’s software or equipment (except to the extent Interana has incorporated or packaged such third party’s software or equipment in or with the Interana Software); or (c) the version of the Interana Software on which the Issue has purportedly occurred is not the most current version of such Interana Software made available to a customer under this Agreement.
  2. “Major Version” means a release of an Interana Software product or component thereof that implements a fundamental change in the software system philosophy and/or the software architecture, as determined by Interana in its sole discretion, typically identified by a change in the digit to the left of the decimal point of the product numbering convention (x.x) (e.g., Product 3.0 to Product 4.0).
  3. “Minor Release” means a change to the current version of an Interana Software product or a component thereof that does not constitute a Major Version, as determined by Interana in its sole discretion.  A minor release may include, without limitation, new features, bug fixes, enhancements to the capability of an already partially supported feature, and is typically identified by a change in the digit to the right of the decimal point of the product numbering convention (x.x) (e.g., Product 3.1 to Product 3.2).
  4. “Maintenance Release” means a change to the current version of an Interana Software product or a component thereof that does not constitute a Major Version or Minor Release, as determined by Interana in its sole discretion. A maintenance release will generally include bug fixes only and is typically identified by a change in the digit to the right of the second decimal point of the product numbering convention (x.x.x) (e.g., Product 3.1 to 3.1.1).
  5. “Update” means a migration by an existing licensee to a Major Version, Minor Release, or Maintenance Release.
