Capitalized terms have the meanings given in the applicable Terms of Service. The following capitalized terms will have the definitions set forth below:

a) “Force Majeure” means any act, event, or occurrence beyond Dock’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, issues arising from bugs or other problems in the software, firmware or hardware of Dock’s suppliers, widespread internet outages or issues with upstream providers or network carriers, acts of God, fires, floods, storms, landslides, epidemics, lightning, earthquakes, drought, blight, famine, pandemic, quarantine, blockade, governmental acts or inaction, orders or injunctions, war, insurrection or civil strife, sabotage, explosions, labor strikes, work stoppages, and acts of terror.

b) “Normal Business Hours” means 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time Monday through Friday excluding holidays.

c) “Total Monthly Time” (TMT) means the total minutes in the relevant calendar quarter less Scheduled Downtime.

d) “Scheduled Downtime” means unavailability of the Service due to ordinary maintenance which is communicated to Customer at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to such unavailability. If such maintenance or unavailability exceeds two hours in any calendar week or six hours in any calendar month, the overage amount will be considered Unscheduled Downtime.

e) “Unscheduled Downtime” (UDT) means the total amount of time during any calendar quarter, measured in minutes, during which the Customer is not able to access the features and functions of the Service or unavailability resulting from (i) non-compliance by Customer with any provision of the Terms or this Service Level Agreement (“SLA”); (ii) incompatibility of Customer’s equipment or software with the Service; (iii) acts or omissions of Customer or Customer’s employees, agents, contractors, or vendors, or anyone gaining access to the Service by means of Customer’s passwords or equipment; (iv) network unavailability or Customer’s bandwidth limitations; (v) unavailability of a software integration due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control; (vi) Force Majeure; or (vii) Scheduled Downtime.

f) “System Availability” means, with respect to any particular calendar month, the ratio obtained by subtracting Unscheduled Downtime during such month from the Total Monthly Time, and thereafter dividing the difference so obtained by the Total Monthly Time. Represented algebraically, System Availability for any particular calendar month is determined as follows:

g) System Availability = (TMT - UDT) ÷ TMT

2. System Performance

a) System Availability. Dock will undertake commercially reasonable measures to ensure that System Availability equals or exceeds ninety-nine point five percent (99.5%) during each calendar month (the “Service Standard”).

b) Access to Support; Response Times. Customer may report Unscheduled Downtime at any time (“24x7x365”) by sending Dock an e-mail to During Normal Business Hours, Dock will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to respond to reports of Unscheduled Downtime within 30 minutes of each such report.

c) System Monitoring and Measurement. Dock uses an independent third-party service (“Monitoring Service Dock”) to monitor System Availability on an ongoing basis. You can access System Availability status, including uptime and incident reports, at any time, here: All measurements of System Availability will be calculated on a monthly basis for each calendar month during the Term based on the records of such Monitoring Service Dock. The Monitoring Service Dock’s records regarding System Availability will be final and each party agrees not to dispute such records.
