7.2 Aperia from time to time in its discretion may modify or update the Platform or the Client Software, which modifications and updates will not materially decrease the functionality of the Service.
7.3 Aperia will make commercially reasonable efforts to provide monthly Platform Availability of 99.0% (“Service Availability Objective”). “Platform Availability” is defined as the percentage of time during the month that the Platform is capable of receiving, processing, and responding to requests, excluding, from the numerator and denominator of the calculation (i) Scheduled Support, (ii) unavailability due to Force Majeure Events, and (iii) unavailability resulting from actions by Customer or its users.

For purposes of calculating the Service Availability Objective, Aperia will only consider the Platform unavailable if Customer opened a trouble ticket relating to the Platform unavailability with the Aperia customer support department on the first day of such unavailability. To obtain a Service Credit for Aperia’s failure to meet the Service Availability Objective, Customer must request, at email@example.com such credit in writing no later than the calendar month following the month of the Platform unavailability giving rise to such request. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Service was purchased on a monthly (no term commitment) or pay-per use basis, there will be no Service Credits given. Service Credits will be the sole and exclusive remedy for any failure to meet the Service Availability Objective.
7.5 “Scheduled Support” is defined as any maintenance performed during Aperia’s standard maintenance windows (weekends between Saturday 12:01am Pacific Time and Sunday at 11:59pm Pacific Time, and on weekdays between 6:00pm Pacific Time and 11:59pm Pacific Time) and any other maintenance of which Aperia gives at least forty-eight (48) hours advance notice. Aperia may perform maintenance on the Platform in order to upgrade hardware or software that operates or supports the Service, implement security measures, or address any other issues it deems appropriate for the continued operation of the Service. Wherever possible, Scheduled Support will account for no more than four (4) hours of downtime per month, nor more than two (2) hours of downtime per occurrence.
