Service credits are applied at the user’s request and will apply toward the balance due at the end of the next billing cycle (either monthly or yearly).
      2. AperiMail Ltd calculates service credits in the following way: If the monthly uptime is less than 99.95% but equal to or greater than 99.0%, the service credit is equal to 10% of the Service’s monthly cost. If the monthly uptime is less than 99.0%, the service credit is equal to 30% of the Service’s cost.

Some performance issues are excluded from downtime calculations, including but not limited to: a) Issues caused by factors outside of AperiMail Ltd’s reasonable control. b) Issues that resulted from any actions or inaction by a user or a third-party. c) Issues that resulted from the user’s equipment and/or third-party equipment (not within the primary control of AperiMail Ltd). For the avoidance of any doubt, AperiMail Ltd does not provide any internet or network services and any performance issues related to that type of services shall be deemed not in the primary control ofAperiMail Ltd. d) Issues that arise from AperiMail Ltd’s suspension or termination of rights to use the Service in accordance with our Terms of Service. e) Downtime caused by reasonable scheduled maintenance that is announced in advance.
