You are also entitled to receive new Upgrades either by a) purchasing such Upgrade for an upgrade license fee defined at our sole discretion, or b) purchasing a Software Maintenance & Support subscription as defined in section 12. No Services are included for installing New Versions of Software unless explicitly stated in the Order.

You acknowledge and agree that in the event you do not purchase SWS, we are under no obligation to provide Technical Support other than updates of the Software as described herein.

15 Obligations to verify and backup. Ensuring compatibility with your requirements is your sole responsibility. After every significant hardware and software change, installation, remedial action, maintenance or other intervention on the system, you shall validate the proper functioning of the Software as well as ensure that any functional operability of data backup (test of backup data for completeness and recoverability) is still working. It is your sole responsibility to backup and retain Customer Data and Software Configuration for a reasonable amount of time prior to executing any installations or configuration changes.
16 Modifications through New Versions. All New Versions of Software are subject to this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that New Versions may be subject to changes to the terms and conditions of this Agreement and that they may add, eliminate or modify features as well as change system requirements. We shall notify you of substantial changes by when New Versions are released. If you do not agree to such substantial changes incurred through a New Version, you shall not install or use a New Version, and you may terminate this Agreement as per section 36 within 90 days after which the New Version has been officially released.
17 Customer Data. You are the data controller and responsible for the files, metadata and user information (collectively “Customer Data”) you store and exchange through Software.

23 Limited Warranties. Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement, we warrant that the Software will substantially perform as per the Documentation (“Warranty”) for ninety (90) days following your initial purchase of the Software (“Warranty Period”). Any non-material deviation does not establish a warranty right and warranty does not apply to NFR Software, Software you have not paid for or Software that you have altered, to the extent that such alternation has caused a Defect. If a Defect classified as “Critical”, “Major” or “Medium” as per definitions in this Agreement arises with the Software as covered under Warranty, we will correct the Defect during the Warranty Period. If we cannot make the Software operate during the Warranty Period as warranted, you are entitled to terminate this Agreement for cause, return and no longer use the Software, and to recover your license fees paid for Software.

Unless otherwise defined in the Order, Technical Support is only warranted to Support Contacts you had previously registered, subject to be limited to a number at our sole discretion.
Extent & Limitations
8 Extent of SLA & Warranties. Through this SLA we warrant to you Response and Resolution times for Technical Support as well as Defect Resolution during the Support Hours according Table A.
9 Classifications. You will pre-classify your Support Query when filing according Table A and we will use reasonable efforts to verify and inform you on our assessment and final classification within the Reaction Time.

Strictly excluded from the SLA and any warranties provided herein are the following situations: (a) Due to factors outside the reasonable control of us such as a failure of 3rd party software, Internet or Hosting infrastructure providers or other limiting factors as defined in this Agreement; (b) you have modified or used the Software inconsistent with this Agreement or Documentation, our reasonable instructions or guidance; (c) you are not using a Supported Version of Software; (c) you have not purchased an SLA or not paid any fees for SWS or SLA when due; (e) the Software is provided to you for free; (f) the Support Query is not filed through a registered Support Contact and the identity and authority of the requestor cannot be verified with reasonably minor efforts; (g) a Support Query can be answered by consulting available Documentation; or (h) a Support Query constitutes a request for consultancy, change or delivery of other professional services.
11 Reporting a Defect. If not defined else in the Order, you will report Defects solely through your Support Contacts according instructions and by use of the form provided on http://www.picturepark.com/support.

14 SLA Credits. SLA Credits are your sole and exclusive remedy for any violation of this SLA. SLA credits are only credited toward future use of this Software under this Agreement.
15 SLA Credit Calculation. SLA Credit calculation is based on your pro-rated fees paid or payable for the Software (or the affected part thereof) during the period in which a Defect effectively occurs (“Credit base”). SLA Credits shall be calculated by applying the corresponding percentage (or a fraction thereof) as defined in Table A to the Credit Base. By way of example and not limitation, Defect resolution on the tenth (10) Day for Priority 1 (Critical) with warranted resolution within four (4) Days will make you eligible to receive SLA Credits for six (6) Days of delay, equivalent to a 100% of the amount paid or payable for the Service during that month.
16 SLA Credit Limitations. In aggregate for Reaction and Resolution times, SLA Credits shall in no event exceed your fees actually paid or payable for the Software during the period in which a Defect effectively occurs. All SLA Credits are strictly limited in aggregate to the limited liabilities defined in this Agreement.
17 Claiming for SLA Credits. To submit a claim, you must send it in writing to the business or email addresses as provided in the Order with a copy sent to email@example.com within at least 30 days after the date the warranted Defect resolution time or Response time was not met. You must provide to us all reasonably requested details regarding and substantiating your claim, including but not limited to, detailed descriptions and durations of the Defect(s), copies of your Support Queries as well as our responses, logs of experienced effective Response times; and the affected URL(s) and/or license ID.
