2. SERVICE LEVELS
Uptime Service Level
Subject to Sections 2.2 and 3, if in any calendar month, the PageDNA Marketing Automation Platform is Not Available for a total of more than eight hours in that month, Customer will be entitled to receive a service level credit equal to five (5) percent of the amount invoiced by PageDNA to Customer for the Marketing Automation Platform for each complete hour (above eight hours) the Online Printing Service is Not Available in that month in accordance with Section 2.2. “Not Available” means that the Marketing Automation Platform is inaccessible by Customer such that Customer is unable to place orders for the online print services using the Marketing Automation Platform, despite following all instructions on the application, for a period exceeding fifteen (15) minutes. This service level credit will constitute Customer’s sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by PageDNA to meet or exceed the service level in this Section 2.1.
Service Level Credit Procedure
In order to receive a service level credit under Section 2.1, Customer must not have any “past due” outstanding invoices for any PageDNA Services and Customer must notify PageDNA by emailing billing@PageDNA.com with details of the service level failure incident within one calendar week of the relevant incident, and provide PageDNA with the necessary resources and assistance as requested by PageDNA to validate, replicate and investigate the issue. Failure to comply with any this requirement will forfeit Customer’s right to receive a service level credit. If Customer is entitled to receive any service level credits, such credits will be applied within ninety (90) days to Customer’s oldest outstanding invoice for access to the Marketing Automation Platform (“Relevant Invoice”). The maximum service level credits that the Customer may receive in any one calendar month are limited to the total amount invoiced by PageDNA to Customer under the Relevant Invoice. Service level credits are only payable as a credit against the Relevant Invoice, and will not be payable to Customer in any other form and may not be set-off by Customer against any future fees payable by the Customer under this Agreement or any separate agreement between Customer and PageDNA.
Response Time Service Level
Subject to Section 3, PageDNA will use commercially reasonable endeavors to meet the response time set out in Appendix C as updated from time to time by PageDNA in accordance with Section 11.
Customer will not be entitled to any service level credits and PageDNA will not be liable for a failure to provide any of the PageDNA Services to the extent PageDNA’s failure is the result of:
- a force majeure situation described in Section 12.5;
- Customer’s failure to comply with Section 4;
- Scheduled Maintenance of the Marketing Automation Platform;
- downtime with the Marketing Automation Platform required by PageDNA to implement an emergency outage to perform urgent work (but PageDNA will aim to provide Customer with as much notice as possible before an emergency outage through the Marketing Automation Platform and/or by email); or
- without limiting the above:
- customers misusing the PageDNA Services, such as using a PageDNA uncertified web browser;
- internet or communication system failures not maintained or hosted by PageDNA;
- downtime experienced by PageDNA’s third party suppliers, such as when Customer cannot look up shipping rates because the third party delivery company’s website is down or where Customer’s credit card payment cannot be processed because the payment gateway is down;
- faults caused by or with any hardware, software or systems used by Customer (such as due to incompatibility), unless such hardware, system, software is provided by PageDNA as part of the PageDNA Services, except where such PageDNA-provided hardware, system or software was at the request of Customer customized by PageDNA according to Customer specifications; or
- faults caused by Customer or any person accessing the PageDNA Services using Customer’s password or by Customer’s invitation.
Customer acknowledges and agrees that any set up timeframes relating to the Platform agreed by the parties are targets only and are not commitments or service levels. PageDNA will not be liable for any failure to meet such timeframes.

- Activation fee
- Monthly or annual subscription fees
- Per-use fees

Accepted payment methods include credit card and ACH. Customer will remit all payments to PageDNA in U.S. dollars. By purchasing a subscription to the PageDNA Services, Customer authorizes PageDNA to keep Customer subscription current by charging Customer’s credit card or other financial account the relevant monthly or annual fee and all applicable taxes until the expiry or termination of this Agreement.
Without limiting any other rights or remedies available to PageDNA, PageDNA reserves the right to suspend any Customer accounts that are more than 60 days past due. Suspended accounts will not be re-established until the balance due on the account has been paid in full. Suspended accounts may lose the privilege of paying on account and require credit card or ACH payment to continue service. Suspended accounts may have any or all of the following services suspended: support, order delivery, access to the Hub and availability of storefronts. PageDNA reserves the right to shut down and remove any storefronts and associated order data for accounts suspended for more than thirty (30) days without liability or notice to Customer.
If PageDNA makes an error on Customer’s bill, Customer must tell PageDNA within one hundred and twenty (120) days after an error first appears on Customer’s bill. Fees are still due while PageDNA investigates any errors, and invoices must still be paid in full according to the terms set in Section 5.3. Customer releases PageDNA from all liability and claims of loss resulting from any error that Customer does not report to PageDNA within one hundred and twenty (120) days after the error first appears on Customer invoices. If Customer does not tell PageDNA within this timeframe, PageDNA will not be required to correct the error. PageDNA can, but is not obligated to correct billing errors at any time.
Additional fees may be payable by Customer for any Updates to the Marketing Automation Platform requested by Customer.
The initial term of this Agreement will commence upon the date Customer accepts this Agreement, and will continue for the period defined in Customer’s applicable Service Request.
