2.4.   Please note that you are only entitled to use the App in a business context.

3.     ORDER DETAILS

3.1.   You may place an order for a licence to use some or all of the Services (“Licence”) through the Safepoint website (“Website”). The order will detail the applicable fees, the duration of the Licence and you will need to submit your payment details and make payment in accordance with clause 5. The Licence may be for full access to the App or for certain features only, as specified in the applicable order.

3.2.   Where you have selected to obtain a free trial of the App (“Trial Period”) on the Website, you will be entitled to a trial for the period specified on the Website. You will be required to pay for any Measured Services used during the Trial Period. During any Trial Period you will only be entitled to use the App, the Services and the Data as a business tool for the ordinary day to day activities involved in the administration and running of your business.

3.3.   Unless you have ordered a (further) Licence Extension, at the expiry of the Initial Subscription Period or any Licence Extension (as the case may be), you will automatically be subscribed to a rolling monthly Licence (each monthly period being a “Contract Month”) for continued use of the App.

3.4.   You may also place an order for additional paid-for Services within the App, either (a) at the time of ordering the Licence or Trial Period, or (b) at any time during the Subscription Term (“Additional Services”). The order for Additional Services will detail the applicable fees payable. You will need to make payment for the Additional Services in accordance with the order and clause 5.

When you place an order, we will send you a message confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the “Order Notification”). The Order Notification is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to purchase a Licence or a Trial Period to use the App, to purchase a Support Upgrade or to take Additional Services.

3.8.   We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract when we: (i) debit your credit, debit card or online payment provider account or (ii) send an e-mail confirming to you that we've accepted your order (the “Order Confirmation”). Notwithstanding, where a Head Agreement is in place, such charges may be paid by the Client on your behalf.

In the unlikely event that the price shown on the Website is wrong, and we discover this before accepting your order in accordance with clause 3.6, we are not required to provide a Licence, Trial Period, Support Upgrade or Additional Services at the price shown. We always try and ensure that the prices shown on our Website are accurate, but occasionally genuine errors may occur. If we discover an error in the price of the Licence, Trial Period, Support Upgrade or Additional Services that you have ordered we will let you know as soon as possible and give you the option of re-confirming your order at the correct price or cancelling it.

3.10. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us we will not be liable to you for any delay.

4.     SERVICE LEVELS

4.1.   Safepoint will provide the Client with customer support services in accordance with Schedule 1 (“Support Services”). Subject to clauses 4.2 and 4.3, the response times and service credits available to you pursuant to the Support Services are determined by which service level has been selected with your Licence or Trial Period.

4.2.   You may also buy an upgrade to a higher level of Support Services within the App at any time during the Subscription Term (“Service Upgrade”). Any Service Upgrade will be treated as an additional order. Such additional order will detail the applicable additional fees. You will need to make payment for the additional fees in accordance with the order and clause 5.

4.3.   You may choose to downgrade to a lower level of Support Services within the App at any time but such downgrade will only take effect at the end of your Subscription Term.

5.     FEES AND PAYMENT

5.1.   In consideration of the provision of the Licence, Trial Period, Support Services and/or Additional Services under this EULA, you must pay the charges as set out in the applicable order(s).

9.6.   This clause 9 shall survive termination of this EULA, however arising.

10.     LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

10.3.   Except as expressly and specifically provided in this EULA:

(b)      all warranties, representations, conditions and all other terms of any kind whatsoever implied by statute or common law are, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, excluded from this EULA; and

10.6.   Subject to clause 10.4 and excluding any provisions in this EULA where an indemnity is provided by either party:

(a)      neither party will be liable to the other party for loss of profits, loss of business, depletion of goodwill and/or similar losses, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goods, loss of contract, loss of use, loss or corruption of data or information or any special, unforeseeable loss (i.e. indirect and consequential loss) or pure economic loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses. For the avoidance of doubt, loss or damage is unforeseeable if either it is not obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you did not know that it might happen; and

(b)      each party’s total liability to each other party in contract, tort (including negligence or breach of statutory duty), misrepresentation, restitution or otherwise arising under or in connection with this EULA will be limited to:

(ii)  the Subscription Fees paid or payable for the Services in the previous 12 months (to be calculated on a pro rata basis where the current Subscription Term is less than 12 months in order to obtain a 12 month figure for the Subscription Fees) giving rise to such liability during the then current Subscription Term.

11.6.   If, for whatever reason, our relationship with a third party service or data provider is restricted, suspended or terminated which affects our ability to provide the App, the Services or the Service Data, we will notify you in writing and use reasonable endeavours to re-commence the App, the Services and the provision of the Service Data as soon as possible.

SCHEDULE 1: SERVICE LEVELS

1.     SUPPORT SERVICE

1.1.   Safepoint’s Support Services are available to the Client as follows (all times shown are local UK time) (“Support Service Hours”): 

1.1.1.      Basic: 9am - 5pm, Business Days

1.1.2.      Standard: 8am - 8pm, Business Days

1.1.3.      Professional: 8am - 8pm, Mon - Sun

1.1.4.      Enterprise: 24/7/365

Whether the Client is entitled to Basic, Standard, Professional or Enterprise Support Services is specified in clause 4. If the Client has not selected or purchased a particular service level they shall be deemed to be entitled to the Basic level of Support Services. 

1.2.   The Support Services can be accessed via telephone, email or via a dedicated support website at https://support.safepointapp.com. A notification via any of these methods is a “Support Request”.

1.3.   Safepoint shall use reasonable endeavours to provide the Services with 99% uptime (excluding planned maintenance where Safepoint has provided the Client with reasonable advance notice). Unplanned service incidents or outages are assessed and graded by severity using the following definitions:

Severity
Fault Incident category
Description
Example
Level 1
Critical
The problem has halted the Services or has had a significant impact on the Services.
Safepoint web portal not available.
Level 2
High
The problem is a partial failure of the specific Services provided to the Client.
SMS alerts not functioning.
Level 3
Medium
The issue has limited the functionality of the Services, although is not adversely affecting the Client’s business operations or End User experience.
Cannot update user details.
Level 4
Low
The issue is considered a system inconvenience.
Spelling mistake in copy used within the web portal.

1.4.   For each severity of incident, Safepoint aims to resolve the incident within the following timescales (“Service Levels”). For each level, a time and point of escalation is identified:

Incident Level
1
2
3
4
Maximum response times for Support Requests
4 hrs
6 hrs
1 days
10 days
Target fix times for Support Requests
1 hr
2 hrs
1 days
20 days

For the purposes of this paragraph 1.4:

1.4.1.   subject to paragraph 1.4.2, the stated response times are measured from the time a Support Request is submitted by the Client;

1.4.2.   if a support request is submitted by the Client outside of the Support Service Hours it shall be deemed received when the Support Service opens again; and

1.4.3.   references to hours or days are to hours and days within the Support Service Hours. By way of example:

a Support Request notifying a Level 1 severity incident reported at 3pm on a Business Day, requires a response within four hours, being:

  • 11am on the next Business Day for Basic service level clients; and

  • 7pm on the same Business Day for Standard, Professional and Enterprise service level clients;

a Support Request notifying a Level 2 severity incident reported at 5pm on a Friday which is a Business Day, requires a response within six hours, being:

  • 2pm on the next Business Day for Basic service level clients;

  • 11am on the next Business Day for Standard service level clients;

  • 11am on the following day (i.e. Saturday) for Professional service level clients; and

  • 11pm on the same day for Enterprise service level clients; and

a Support Request notifying a Level 3 severity incident reported at 9pm on a Saturday, requires a response within one day, being:

  • 9am on the second Business Day for Basic service level clients;

  • 8am on the second Business Day for Standard service level clients;

  • 8am on the following Monday for Professional service level clients; and

  • 9pm on the Sunday for Enterprise service level clients.

2.     SERVICE CREDITS 

2.1.   Safepoint shall provide the Client with service credits in the event of any failure to meet the Level 1 and Level 2 Service Levels following notification of a Support Request. Safepoint shall provide service credits to the Client calculated on a points-based system as follows: (a) each Level 1 fault incident accumulates 5 points; and (b) each Level 2 fault incident accumulates 2 points.

2.2.   The total number of points will be aggregated on a monthly basis and the following service credits will be applied to the Client’s account if the following level of points have been accumulated:

2.3.   The first month to be assessed in respect of the Service Levels will commence upon execution of this EULA. The points total will revert to zero at the start of each measured month.

2.4.   The provision of service credits are intended to be a reduction in the fees payable by the Client to reflect the reduced value of the relevant Safepoint Services, they are not intended to compensate for any losses suffered. Notwithstanding, where service credits are provided by Safepoint to the Client, this shall be the Client’s and End User’s sole and exclusive remedy in respect of that fault incident.
