Training and Awareness

Qilin.Cloud commits to a minimum Availability of the Service of 99.9%.
The Service will be considered available to the extent that the User is able to use the Service through the API and access the application data at the service transfer point of the API (i.e. at the exit of the respective data center) (“Availability”).
Qilin.Cloud measures Availability by sending test requests in regular intervals to the Service.
Availability is measured over the entire operating period (24/7) and shall be calculated on the basis of a calendar month in the unit of minutes. For the purposes of the calculation, a calendar month is defined as 30 days i.e.
(365 days / 12 mongths) x 24 hours x 60 minutes = 43800 minutes
Downtime refers to the total number of minutes within a calendar month during which the Service is not available.
Availability is expressed as a percentage and will be calculated as follows:
Availability = ((43800 minutes – Planned Servicing Period – Downtime not attributeable to Qilin.Cloud) – Downtime) / (43800 min – Planned Servicing Period – Downtime not attributable to Qilin.Cloud)
Planned Servicing Period
Qilin.Cloud may be required to schedule planned servicing and maintenance periods from time to time to technically adapt, ensure the functioning and interoperability, develop, and maintain the security of the Service (“Planned Servicing Period”). Qilin.Cloud ordinarily informs Users through the internal status page at least seven days before a planned maintenance period and describes the type, extent, and projected duration. Users may register for this portal to receive such notifications by e-mail. When possible, such Planned Servicing Periods will be carried out during low-traffic periods and in such a manner that the usage of the Service is not expected to be substantially affected.
Qilin.Cloud endeavors to ensure no more than twelve hours of Planned Servicing Period per year.
Availability calculations will exclude unavailability arising from any: (a) Planned Servicing Period; (b) force majeure events; (c) Users application, equipment, software or other technology, or third-party service providers’ faults or disruptions for which Qilin.Cloud is not responsible; (d) Users use of the Service in violation of its agreement or not in accordance with the Documentation; or (e) suspension or termination of Users access or use of the Service in accordance with the Users agreement.
The provisions do not apply to APIs and functionalities provided as beta versions, test and/or development projects, and services that are provided to the User free of charge (for example, the open source connectors and the SDKs).
