14.3.2 the Client's use of the Software in a manner contrary to the instructions given to the Client by Capture; or
14.3.3 the Client's use of the Software after notice of the alleged or actual infringement from Capture or any appropriate authority.
14.4 The foregoing and clause 15.5.2 state the Client’s sole and exclusive rights and remedies, and Capture’s entire obligations and liability, for patent, copyright, database or right of confidentiality infringement.
15 LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

SCHEDULE 1 – SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENT
1. SERVICE LEVEL DIFFERENTIATION.
1.1. Clauses 4.1, 5, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13 and 17 in this Schedule do not apply to any Client purchasing Capture’s Express Software and related Services (“Express Clients”), as referenced in the Order Confirmation.
1.2. Express Clients access to Capture support will be limited to information available on Capture’s Knowledge Base.
2. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
2.1. The Supplier shall measure Availability of the Services 24/7, 365 days per year using an appropriate monitoring system.
2.2. Capture shall ensure Availability of the Services of 99.5% over the period of a year, excluding Planned Maintenance Periods (as defined below).
3. MAINTENANCE EVENTS
3.1. It may be necessary for the Supplier to conduct Service maintenance during “Planned Maintenance Periods” (“PMP”), during which the Services may be unavailable. Where possible, and except for any emergency maintenance, the Supplier will look to schedule these PMPs outside of normal UK Business Hours. The Supplier will when possible, provide commercially reasonable advance warning of such PMPs to the Client.
3.2. Capture may determine, at its sole discretion, that providing appropriate service levels requires additional equipment and/or bandwidth and may install that equipment and/or bandwidth without approval from the Client. Capture may increase the corresponding Fees for the Hosting Services, by mutual agreement between the Parties or when such installation has been necessary to support a breach of Capture’s Fair Use Policy.
4. ONGOING SERVICE PROVISION AND MAINTENANCE
4.1. Subject to the payment of the Fees, Capture shall provide the following services to the Client:
4.1.1. technical support via Capture’s service desk (in line with the Client’s selected SLA model as defined in the Order Confirmation);
4.1.2. telephone support and e-mail (in line with the Client’s SLA model as defined in the Order Confirmation);
4.1.3. Maintenance includes all Updates aligned to the Specification. Support for additional, non standard features developed by Capture, as requested by the Client, may be purchased separately at Capture’s then current rates.
4.2. Capture shall maintain and update the Software in accordance with the previous clause. Should the Client determine that the Software includes a defect, the Client may at any time file error reports as Tickets as set out in this document. During PMPs, Capture may, at its discretion, change the Version of the Software used by a Client, install error corrections and apply patches to the hosted systems. Capture shall use all reasonable endeavours to avoid unscheduled downtime for Software maintenance.
4.3. Capture reserves the right to reduce or withdraw Maintenance Services for a particular Version of the Software. By default, Capture commits to providing Maintenance Services for a maximum of 12 months from the release of a new Version.

6.2. In the event of a data restoration request, for all or a subset of the Client’s Data, Capture will use commercially reasonable efforts to commence a restoration within one working day. It should be noted that this is different to a full system restore and as such Capture gives no guarantee as to the success of a partial data restoration.
6.3. For data restoration requests beyond the Retention Period, Capture provides no guarantee that the data will be available or that a restoration will be feasible or successful. Capture will however make reasonable efforts to assist the Client with such a recovery request.
6.4. The Client should make their own arrangements regarding backing up the Client Data beyond the Retention Period. Whilst Capture can provide such Services known as “Long Term Archiving”, these do not form part of the scope of this Agreement. These Services would be subject to either separate agreement or specific addendum to this Agreement with associated pricing and referenced in the Order Confirmation. This reflects the potential need to include third party service provider terms.

The Client may name personnel as Client Support Representatives (“CSRs”) in the Order Confirmation who shall be authorised to contact the Supplier for technical support Services by raising Tickets. Capture shall unless otherwise agreed by the parties, directly communicate in the first instance on technical support Services only to those CSRs.
8.2. The following types of Tickets can be submitted to the Supplier’s service desk:
8.2.1. “Incident”: Reporting of an unplanned interruption to the Services, or reduction in quality of service or bug.
8.2.2. “Request”: Request for information or advice, or for a Change Request that is a small change to the Services, or for simple requests for access to the Services eg password resets.

8.6.2. where in the system;
8.6.3. why they were doing it;
8.6.4. what was the expected result; and
8.6.5. what was the actual result.
8.7. The Client will promptly provide Capture with all information and materials required by Capture for the purpose of investigation, diagnosis and correction of any reported error including screenshots or data dumps. Capture will not be liable for failure to provide, or any delay or error in providing the Services resulting from the Client’s failure or delay in complying with this clause.

16.5. Subject always to Clauses 15.1 to 15.4 inclusive, the Client shall be entitled to claim a Service Credit, the amount calculated as the product of the total cumulative downtime expressed as a percentage of the total possible uptime minutes in the month concerned (“Maximum Uptime”) that the Services are unavailable below the level outlined in the Service Availability Measurement Criterion table and referenced as an “Availability Breach” provided in this Appendix, depending upon the outage circumstances for the Services for the month in which the Incident occurs. The period of the outage will be measured from the time the Client reports the problem to Capture’s confirmation of restoration of Services.

FAIR USE POLICIES AND SERVICE PARAMATERS
1.1. Capture will not look to charge extra fees when our solutions are used reasonably. For licensing, storage and bandwidth we allow excess without additional charge of up to 110% of the agreed level during a month.
1.2. Should a Client breach the 110% level on a persistent basis during the period of a calendar month or if Capture detect something out of the ordinary in a Client’s usage, a member of our team will contact you to discuss the situation and talk through your options.
1.3. If the situation doesn’t change, you will need to either i) limit the available storage, bandwidth or users or b) discuss an increase in the fees by purchasing more user licenses or additional storage or bandwidth.
2. Capture’s Policies
2.2. Capture provides its Clients with a fixed amount of storage based on initial commercial discussions. Capture’s platform is however designed to allow for additional storage without impairing your usage of the system.
2.3. Capture actively monitors the amount of storage used by our customers on a monthly basis. Should the storage exceed 110% of the Hosting Services – Initial Storage quantity, Capture may charge for any overage.
2.4. Capture will always contact you to discuss the situation ahead of any change. Often this leads to a content audit, increase in storage or exploring our longer term archiving service.
2.5. If a Client wants to expand their storage this can be purchased in blocks of One TB.
3.1. To prevent a negative effect of excessive network traffic on your user experience or that of others, we monitor the general usage of traffic across our customer base. We compare your use to the average use of all our customers with the same contract. With normal use you don’t have to worry about the bandwidth available to you.
3.2. If we detect a situation that could lead to a decrease in the performance of your service, we will contact you to discuss the situation ahead of any increase in fees. Typically this is caused by a large file transfer activity which in our experience is invariably temporary.
3.3. Our arrangements with our suppliers allow for these “bursts” in usage across our customer base. As a result, we rarely have to pass on costs to our customers. On these occasions we would recommend a dedicated line which we can price for you.
4.1. Capture actively monitors the number of administrative users on a monthly basis. We will not block users if you exceed the licenses you have paid for.
4.2. We will contact if you exceed your user quota to discuss whether there is a need to purchase additional licences.
5. Third Party Policies
6.1. These policies should be read in conjunction with any partner specific terms.
7.1. Capture actively monitors image volumes and impressions on a monthly basis. Should either exceed 110% of the maximum levels stated in the order confirmation, Capture may charge for any overage.
