ClickIT Standard Server Maintenance & Monitoring Service Agreement (MSPSA)
1. WHOLE AGREEMENT
This agreement(“Agreement”) shall govern the managed IT
services provided, as outlined in this section (“Services”) to the customer
identified (“Customer”) by ClickIT Corporation (“ClickIT”).
ClickIT Standard Server Maintenance & Monitoring Service Agreement (MSPSA)
1. ClickIT Services are Typically Provided on an Hourly Basis, unless otherwise stated – The nature of the I.T. Industry is that technology is often unpredictable; and no technician can every understand all the complexities of a situation, which always has unique characteristics. Therefore, ClickIT managed IT services are provided typically on a per hour basis at either our published standard hourly rate or at a rush rate, billed in 15 minute increments. If a service is to be provided based on a fixed quotation, that service price will be stated in writing up-front, in writing, and approved before any work will begin. Work approval can be provided by filling out and signing our “Technical Support Services Form”. Below are additional details:
a. Our standard rate is for work completed during our regular business hours, 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM, (Eastern Standard Time) Monday through Friday, excepting holidays. At this rate, we will respond within 48 to 64 hours if it is a service call at the Customer’s facility, or an issue which can be serviced by phone.
b. If the Customer needs faster service or is in a critical situation, we can respond within four (4) hours at our rush rate.
c. We provide this two rate structure so that we are able to immediately respond to the needs of our Customer while still accommodating our current workload. We anticipate that most work will be billed at our standard, lower rate for non-critical work.
2. Based on Information Provided - Our estimates are based often on an analysis and assessment of the equipment in question by either the equipment being delivered to us by the Customer or from a visit to the Customer’s facility by our staff; where we have collected as much information as possible during a limited length of time. This “consultation period”, by nature (where we evaluate and discuss the condition and behavior of the complex equipment in question), takes time, knowledge and expertise which may or may not be readily available at the time of this consultation. Further research may be needed which could result in a charge. During our initial analysis or visit, our certified personnel reviews the status of the Customer's current network and equipment, and reviews the desired fixes or changes before conducting any work.
3. Initial Work - Typically, based on our analysis and assessment, when providing any technical services for a customer, initial work often requires a much more concentrated effort and will take more time than eventually we will spend to maintain a Customer's computer equipment on an on-going basis. Below is an explanation of how we charge for this work:
a. Invoices are issued at the completion of any approved work, or at the end of each week for on-going work and are due upon receipt. Credit cards are accepted. Checks are preferred.
b. Our work which is completed is noted in as much detail as possible on our invoices, which will be either mailed, emailed or both -- your choice.
c. Upon receipt of an invoice, if the Customer has any questions regarding the work completed by ClickIT, we ask that they contact us immediately by calling (440) 247-4998, ext. 3029, or by sending us a message, so that we can make any necessary adjustments.

4. Managed IT Services Provided – When asked to maintain a network or equipment on an on-going or contractual basis, depending on what's already in place at the Customer's facility, we typically work with our Customer to devise an acceptable maintenance, back-up and disaster recovery scheme. This planning is critical.
a. Typically, at the beginning of an engagement as a “Managed IT Service provider” (MSP) for a new customer, we conduct a server and equipment analysis & provide a basic tune-up.
b. We may at that time re-configure a Customer’s servers and/or network, which may or may not entail the purchase of new or used equipment. The Customer will be notified of any recommendations and will be responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses as described in the Customer’s agreement and/or contract arrived at with ClickIT.
c. Any planned work to implement will always be approved by the Customer before ClickIT proceeds with any work. This approval, however, can be given verbally or in writing.
d. Some work may be needed to be completed after regular business hours. Any work completed after normal business hours or on weekends are billed at a rush rate. Any rush work is described to the Customer and approved by them beforehand.
i. An emergency phone number is available to Customers in case they need to reach ClickIT personnel after hours.
ii. In an emergency situation, ClickIT will always do its best to respond as quickly as possible, essentially remaining “on-call” for the Customer as needed, for the duration of the emergency.
e. After an initial service at a Customer’s facility, ClickIT plans to achieve making the Customer's I.T. operations run smoother and more efficiently, without unpredicted interruptions, while preventing crashes and severe issues from potentially occurring. This is a distinct advantage in hiring ClickIT for on-going maintenance and service.
5. Recommendations - The most pressing issue for many Customers requiring service is their back-up and disaster-recovery procedures. Many companies unfortunately don’t have plans in place. ClickIT can make recommendations on how to achieve an objective of having a fully recoverable back-up and disaster-recovery solution. Further purchase of equipment and software may be necessary. ClickIT typically purchases any equipment on the client's behalf and bills them separately, with pre-approval.
a. Critical Items - In most instances, before ClickIT begin any work, critical items need to be addressed urgently, or else unforeseen interruptions may occur at the Customer's operations. If anticipated, ClickIT can address I.T. issues quickly, working with the participation of the Customer, making quick decisions in purchasing equipment and/or software. On-going maintenance typically can begin as soon as the Customer approves it, but until recommendations are implemented, there may still be interruptions.
6. Customer Approval - ClickIT will make recommendations to Customers for any upgrades or improvements to the overall functionality of their computer(s), network, and I.T. infrastructure. If our recommendations in hardware and software upgrades are approved by the Customer, ClickIT will take the responsibility to see that the hardware and/or software is properly installed, as planned. If any of our recommendations are not approved by the Customer, the Customer should indicate that they did not approve our recommendations. This indication can come either verbally or in writing.
7. Maintaining & Monitoring Client's Systems & Providing On-Call Remote Technical Support – When responsible for a Customer’s computer(s), network and/or systems, once ClickIT has completed any initial concentrated effort to improve a Customer's I.T. infrastructure, an estimated amount of time and work may be needed per month for maintaining and monitoring the Customer's equipment. ClickIT can be made available for technical on-going Phone Support for personnel in the field or at the Customer’s office. On-call services and a Help Desk is available and may or may not be included in a service plan, or monthly expense.
a. Any on-going contracted service work will be billed monthly at the anticipated number of hours at either our standard rate or rush rate. The Customer is obligated by to pay ClickIT for the length of a service contract as noted on the final agreement.
b. The amount provided on a “Service Contract Agreement” is a “retainer”, which guarantees that work will be completed and ClickIT will have the qualified staff necessary to complete it.
c. ClickIT billing cycle for maintenance and monitoring begins starting at the end of any initial recommended work is completed.
d. If the anticipated hours budgeted during any month are exceeded, then this exceeded amount will be billed separately at the end of that month.
e. All ClickIT bills are noted properly as to which employee did the work and the amount of time spent.
f. Maintenance may include testing and installation of server or computer software upgrades and patches.
g. At any time, work may require the direct participation of the Customer in helping our staff as necessary, knowing what the implications are on a per-install basis.
h. Nothing will be done without the Customer's prior approval and knowledge, when necessary. This approval can be given verbally or in writing.
i. Major upgrades, patches or installations most likely will not interrupt the Customer's standard operations. Most often this work will be completed after hours or during preannounced down-time, with the Customer's approval.
j. Maintenance may require that ClickIT personnel have access to the Customer's facility which will be prearranged with the client prior to our visit.
k. Ultimately, the responsibility of the equipment remains with the Customer. However, our experience, guidance and expertise will most likely prevent issues from re-occurring.
8. Off-site Services – In an on-going service plan, monitoring can be done offsite at our facility where ClickIT personnel are logged into the Customer's servers through the Internet using a VPN (virtual PRIVATE network). The Customer may or may not be aware of monitoring at any one time. ClickIT will have full access, and the Customer provides full-permission to do so.
9. Help-Desk Services - A Help-Desk can be readily made available for a Customer, their associates and employees as outlined in the contract between ClickIT and Customer. If a Help-Desk is included, then the following is noted:
a. ClickIT will be available for remote, call-in technical support for the Customer's employees, in the office or out in the field, from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, except holidays.
b. Those who the Customer authorizes can reach our technical support help-desk by calling (800) 368-7416 or (216) 916-0196, extension 3.

V. Scheduled Maintenance
To ensure optimal performance of the servers, the Company
will perform routine maintenance on the servers on a regular basis, sometimes
requiring servers to be removed from service. The Company reserves one hour of
server unavailability per month for maintenance purposes. This server unavailability
will be excluded from the uptime calculations. The maintenance is typically
performed during off-peak hours. The Company will provide You with advanced
notice of maintenance whenever possible, but is not obligated to do so.
VI. Emergency Maintenance
Under certain circumstances the Company may need to perform emergency maintenance, such as security patch installation or hardware replacement under Hardware Replacement Guarantee. The company will not be able to provide You with advanced notice in case of emergency maintenance. This server unavailability due to emergency maintenance will be excluded from the uptime calculations. Hardware Replacement Guarantee: Company will use industry standard practices to determine whether server hardware is functioning properly and will replace non-functioning hardware with similarly functioning hardware. For hosted services, the company will replacement hardware as necessary within four hours from the time the problem is identified. In the case where this time is exceeded, the excess downtime is counted against Server Availability guarantee.
VII. Network Availability
The Company guarantees at least 98.6% Network Availability. Network Availability is defined as the ability to pass incoming and outgoing TCP/IP traffic through the Company's network from/to IP transit provider (Internet backbone). Servers unavailability resulting from loss of Network Availability is excluded from servers availability calculations if the Network Availability loss is caused by any factor(s) beyond the Company's control, including but not limited to such factors as IP transit provider (backbone) or end user's portion of the network (commonly known as "last mile") failure, denial of service or similar attacks directed at the Company's servers or the Company's network.
VIII. Network Availability Monitoring
To verify the Application Server Availability, the Company will probe router port to which the server is connected every two minutes, with a 10-second failure threshold. If the probe is not successful, the port is considered non-operational and NOC personnel on duty are automatically notified. If two or more consecutive port probes fail, network downtime will be registered as the number of minutes between the first and the last failed tests. Downtime of less than five minutes in duration is not recorded. The Company will calculate server uptime and refund eligibility amounts based on this type of server monitoring.
IX. Servers Availability
Company's primary commitment is to provide outstanding web hosting service to all customers. To support this commitment, Company observes the following schedule of remedies for any failure to meet the express guarantees in this Service Level Agreement.
X. WEB SERVER AVAILABILITY
The Company guarantees at least 98.6% Web Server Availability. Web Server Availability is defined as the ability to retrieve the HTTP headers from the hosting server, calculated on a monthly basis. The Company will not monitor availability of individual web sites but only monitors the server availability as a whole. Denial of service attacks or other types of attacks directed toward Company's network of servers resulting in or contributing to downtime will not be included in Web Server Availability calculations.
XI. Web Server Availability Monitoring
To verify the Web Server Availability, the Company will
probe HTTP service to retrieve HTTP headers on the server every five minutes,
with a 30-second failure threshold. If the probe is not successful, the server
is considered non-operational and is automatically restarted. If restarting the
server does not solve the problem, it is immediately escalated to technical
support and the system administrators. If two or more consecutive server probes
fail, server downtime will be registered as the number of minutes between the
first and the last failed tests. Downtime of less than five minutes in duration
is not recorded. The Company will calculate server uptime and refund
eligibility amounts based on this type of server monitoring.

The outgoing email protocol used on the mail server (SMTP) is a "store-and-forward" type of protocol that does not guarantee immediate delivery of email messages. If the mail server's first email delivery attempt fails, it will re-attempt delivery according to a predefined schedule. If the message fails to be sent for 24 to 72 hours, the messages will be returned to the sender.
XV. Mail Server Availability Monitoring
To verify that the server is available, the Company will probe SMTP and POP services (retrieve SMTP and POP headers) every five minutes with a 30-second threshold.

Each account is allotted storage capacity and data transfer amounts on Company's servers according to the plan and options selected by You. This storage size and data transfer allotments can be increased for an additional charge up to the maximum amount allowed for each plan or service. The servers may stop accepting, processing, or delivering data when the purchased limit is reached thus causing server unavailability or data loss. Company shall not be held responsible for such unavailability or data losses. Your Web and FTP servers are configured to log all requests to the log files. The normal retention period is one month. The log files are stored in shared server space and not counted towards account's allotted storage capacity. The maximum size of stored log files is limited 1 Gigabyte. When this limit is exceeded, the oldest log files are deleted to bring the usage within allowed limit. Shared servers resources are shared among all accounts hosted on the same server. Company configures servers in such a way so the accounts are separated from each other to the maximum possible degree. However, due to its nature, shared resources accessibility level cannot be guaranteed.
