Service Level Agreement [v3 03/2020]


We use only top quality servers, switches, and routers. This translates into great reliability and uptime.
As a result, within our own server farm and facilities that are under our own control and management, we guarantee that our network will be up and functioning 99.99% of the time per month.
Occasionally servers and systems must be brought down for routine maintenance and upgrades to ensure that your site performs optimally. However, we strive to keep such service interruptions to a minimum, and, when possible, give you advance notice of any scheduled maintenance. Scheduled service outages do not qualify for this guarantee!

Additionally, this guarantee is your remedy for any unscheduled downtime of more than the limits outlined above. Downtime must be confirmed by a staff member in our support system.
Maximum credit given will not exceed the amount of the monthly charge for the customer service with us. The credit will be applied to your invoice on your next due date. Downtime is measured from the time the customer records such failure by submitting a support ticket in our support ticketing system and until a resolution is provided for that ticket.  

[1] Network Guarantee
We guarantee that the network will be available 99.99% of the time in any given month (this does not include functionality of software/services on a server), excluding scheduled maintenance. If network downtime exceeds 0.01% the customer will be refunded 10% of their monthly fee for every 60 minutes of downtime, up to 100% of the customer’s monthly fees.
Network uptime includes functioning of all network infrastructure including routers, switches and cabling, but does not include services or software running on your server.

We are not responsible for outages or circumstances beyond our control that hinder access to your site or server. The following are excluded from the monthly calculation of Service Level:
– Scheduled downtime or maintenance
– Traffic conditions on the internet outside of our network
– ISP or local problems such as Browser or DNS caching
– DDoS, Attacks, Exploits or hacked servers
– An outage from an upstream facility outside of our network
– Interruptions or failure of individual service caused by client, their employees, client’s customers, friends, or family.

[2] Data Center (NOC) Guarantee

We guarantee that the critical systems, including power, HVAC and Dry Fire Suppression Systems, will be available 100% of the time in any given month, excluding scheduled maintenance. We will refund the customer 10% of the monthly fee for each 60 minutes of downtime (up to 100% of customer’s monthly fee).

Critical systems include functioning of all power and HVAC infrastructure including UPSes, PDUs and cabling, but does not include the power supplies on customers’ servers. NOC downtime exists when a particular server is shut down due to power or heat problems and we record such a failure in the support ticketing system.


[3] Hardware Guarantee – (Dedicated Server customers only!)

We guarantee the functioning of all leased hardware components and will replace any failed component at no cost to the customer.
Hardware replacement will begin once we identify the cause of the problem. Hardware replacement is guaranteed to be complete within 3 hours of problem identification. This guarantee of 3 hours does not include additional actions such as software installations, OS reinstalling, or other data or backup services.

In the event that it takes us more than 6 hours to replace faulty hardware, we will refund the customer 10% of the monthly fee for each exceeding period of 180 minutes of downtime (up to 100% of customer’s monthly fee). Hardware is defined as the Processor(s), Memory, hard disk(s), motherboard, NIC card and other related hardware included under the server lease.

All Subscribers with an unpaid invoice(s) 3 days after the invoice due date will have their Service suspended, pending full payment of their balance. Subscribers with an unpaid invoice(s) 30 days after the due date will have their Service(s) completely terminated and deleted. Once Service is terminated it is non-restorable and non-renewable as all data including any backups are permanently and irretrievably deleted. Subscribers are entirely responsible for the payment of all taxes, if any. Monthly fees and renewal fees will be billed at the rate agreed to at purchase. You may cancel the Services at any time by logging into the client area at https://my.aplushosting.asia/clientarea/.

Except as otherwise set forth hereunder, any and all fees paid hereunder are non-refundable and any and all fees owed to Aplus Asia Enterprise before such termination shall be immediately due and payable, including any liabilities that may have been incurred prior to termination such as Aplus Asia Enterprise’ costs for collection (including attorneys’ fees) of any such charges or other liabilities. Upon termination, any and all rights granted to Subscriber by this Agreement will immediately be terminated, and Subscriber shall promptly discontinue all use of the Services. If you wish to terminate your Account, you may do so by following the instructions on the Website or through the Services. All provisions of these Terms of Service which by their nature should survive termination shall survive termination, including, without limitation, licenses of User Content, ownership provisions, warranty disclaimers, indemnity and limitations of liability.


[13] Choice Of Law, Venue and Consent To Email Service

Any claim arising hereunder shall be construed in accordance with the substantive and procedural laws of the State of Missouri, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. Subject to Section 15 below, you agree that any dispute arising from or relating to the subject matter of these Terms of Service shall be governed by the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state and federal courts of St. Louis County, Missouri. Subscriber consents to service of process via email at the email address(es) provided by Subscriber, and waives any requirement under the Hague Convention or other judicial treaty requiring that legal process be translated into any language other than English.


[14] Dispute Resolution

Mindful of the high cost of litigation, you and Aplus Asia Enterprise agree to the following dispute resolution procedure: in the event of any controversy, claim, action or dispute arising out of or related to (i) the Website; (ii) this Agreement; (iii) the Services; (iv) the breach, enforcement, interpretation, or validity of this Agreement; or (v) any other dispute between you and Aplus Asia Enterprise (“Dispute”), the party asserting the Dispute shall first try in good faith to settle such Dispute by providing written notice to the other party (by first-class or registered mail) describing the facts and circumstances (including any relevant documentation) of the Dispute and allowing the receiving party 30 days in which to respond to or settle the Dispute. Notice shall be sent (1) if to Aplus Asia Enterprise Co, Ltd., Moo 2, 172/17, Najomtien, Sattahip, Chonburi, 20250 Thailand or (2) if to you at your last-used billing address or the billing and/or shipping address in your Account information. Both you and Aplus Asia Enterprise agree that this dispute resolution procedure is a condition precedent that must be satisfied prior to initiating any arbitration or filing any claim against the other party.


[15] Arbitration Agreement & Class Action Waiver

15.1 In the interest of resolving disputes between you and Aplus Asia Enterprise in the most expedient and cost-effective manner, you and Aplus Asia Enterprise agree that every dispute arising in connection with these Terms will be resolved by binding arbitration. Arbitration is less formal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, which may allow for more limited discovery than in court and can be subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. This agreement to arbitrate disputes includes all claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of these Terms, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation, or any other legal theory and regardless of whether a claim arises during or after the termination of these Terms. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THESE TERMS, YOU AND Aplus Asia Enterprise ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION.

15.2 Despite the provisions of Section 15.1, nothing in these Terms will be deemed to waive, preclude, or otherwise limit the right of either party to: (i) bring an individual action in small claims court; (ii) pursue an enforcement action through the applicable federal, state, or local agency if that action is available; (iii) seek injunctive relief in a court of law; or (iv) to file suit in a court of law to address an intellectual property infringement claim.

15.3 Any arbitration between you and Aplus Asia Enterprise will be settled under the Federal Arbitration Act, and governed by the Commercial Dispute Resolution Procedures and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes (collectively, “AAA Rules”) of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by these Terms, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules and filing forms are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by contacting Aplus Asia Enterprise.

15.4 A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send a written notice of the dispute to the other party by certified U.S. Mail or by Federal Express (signature required) or, only if such other party has not provided a current physical address, then by electronic mail (“Notice”). Aplus Asia Enterprise address for Notice is Aplus Asia Enterprise Co, Ltd., Moo 2, 172/17, Najomtien, Sattahip, Chonburi, 20250 Thailand. The Notice must: (a) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (b) set forth the specific relief sought (“Demand”). The parties will make good faith efforts to resolve the claim directly, but if the parties do not reach an agreement to do so within 30 days after the Notice is received, you or Aplus Asia Enterprise Co, Ltd. may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by you or Aplus Asia Enterprise must not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator makes a final decision and award, if any. If the dispute is finally resolved through arbitration in your favor, Aplus Asia Enterprise will pay you the highest of the following: (i) the amount awarded by the arbitrator, if any; (ii) the last written settlement amount offered by Aplus Asia Enterprise in settlement of the dispute prior to the arbitrator’s award; or (iii) $1,000.

15.5 If you commence arbitration in accordance with these Terms, Aplus Asia Enterprise will reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for more than $10,000, in which case the payment of any fees will be decided by the AAA Rules. Any arbitration hearing will take place at a location to be agreed upon in St. Louis, Missouri, but if the claim is for $10,000 or less, you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted: (i) solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator; (ii) through a non-appearance based telephone hearing; or (iii) by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In that case, you agree to reimburse Aplus Asia Enterprise for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator must issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the decision and award, if any, are based. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees or expenses at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within 14 days of the arbitrator’s ruling on the merits.

15.6 YOU AND Aplus Asia Enterprise AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and Aplus Asia Enterprise agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.

15.7 If Aplus Asia Enterprise makes any future change to this arbitration provision, other than a change to Aplus Asia Enterprise’ address for Notice, you may reject the change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to Aplus Asia Enterprise’ address for Notice, in which case your account with Aplus Asia Enterprise will be immediately terminated and this arbitration provision, as in effect immediately prior to the changes you rejected will survive.

15.8 If Section 15.6 is found to be unenforceable or if the entirety of this Section 15 is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this Section 15 will be null and void and, in that case, the parties agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue described in Section 13 will govern any action arising out of or related to these Terms. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement.


[16] Miscellaneous Provisions

A valid waiver hereunder shall not be interpreted to be a waiver of that obligation in the future or any other obligation under this Agreement.
