Definitions

Initial response time - Severity Levels

Rentouch will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet the target initial response time for the applicable severity level. Our Support personnel will assign a severity level "Blocker" to each Incident in their sole discretion and seek to provide responses in accordance with the table below. Rentouch will use reasonable efforts to notify Customer of any change from the Severity Level initially reported by Customer.

Support hours

Support during normal business hours = 8am - 5pm CET (UTC+1) Monday - Friday, excluding Rentouch holidays.

Premium support named contacts

Premium connects our top-tier engineers with the customer. We limit the number of individuals to three named contacts (per $25'000 per account). This helps ensure the most knowledgeable individuals among our customers are connected with our most senior engineers to drive issues to conclusion faster.

Fixing Bugs

  • Rentouch will help with workarounds and bug reporting
  • Critical bugs will generally be fixed in the next maintenance release
  • Non critical bugs will be scheduled according to a variety of considerations

Critical priority is defined as: "production application down or major malfunction causing business revenue loss or high numbers of staff unable to perform their normal functions." This includes security issues.

Eligibility and Software Maintenance

Software maintenance covers access to support and software product updates if the licenses were legally acquired and or the maintenance fee was paid. After the active maintenance period expires, the software will continue to function, but you will no longer be able to access support or software updates (including security bug fixes). Support is open to system administrators and account holders. End-users will be redirected to a system administrator.

Knowledge Prerequisites

Customers are responsible for administering and upgrading their own installations. Rentouch will provide guidance on how to do this, but we will not be able to provide step by step maintenance and installation.
