[6.1] Corporation warrants and represents to Customer that
(i) the Software will perform substantially following the documentation if any, provided by Corporation to Customer, and
(ii) the Hosting Services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner and accordance with Section 2. In the event of Downtime (as defined in this Section below), as the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy and Corporation’s sole and exclusive liability, the monthly fee payable for the Hosting Services shall be reduced as follows:
- For the first 12 hours of Downtime outside of Normal Business Hours (“Initial Downtime”), Corporation will credit the Customer’s account for 1 day of service.
- For every 24 hours of Downtime per day in addition to the Initial Downtime, Corporation will credit the Customer’s account for 1 additional day of service.
For this Agreement, “Downtime” shall mean any interruption in the availability of Hosting Services to Customer (excluding scheduled interruptions of which Customer is notified 3 hours in advanced), only if such interruption is due either to:
- an error in the Software, or
- failure of the Corporation System (but not including problems associated with Internet connectivity). Downtime begins upon Customer notification to the Corporation of the interruption, either by speaking directly with a Corporation customer service representative or recording a voice mail message in the Corporation customer service voice mailbox and continues until the availability of the Hosting Services is restored to the Customer. For purposes of this Agreement, “Normal Business Hours” shall mean between the hours of 00:00 to 23:59 GMT+5:30, 7 days a week.
In the event of a breach (other than Downtime) of the warranty outlined in Section 6 (i) above, the Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy, and Corporation’s sole and exclusive liability shall be, at Corporation’s option, repair or replacement of the Software.
THE FOREGOING CONSTITUTES THE CUSTOMER’S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY, AND THE CORPORATION’S ENTIRE LIABILITY, FOR DOWNTIME AND BREACH OF THE HOSTING SERVICES WARRANTY PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION

These obligations do not include any claims to the extent they are based on the use of the Software or Corporation System in violation of this Agreement or combination with any other software or hardware, or any modification to the Software or Corporation System under Customer’s specifications.
