Infringement Notifications under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act

To file a notice of infringement with MaxCDN or any of NetDNA's brands (NetDNA is the parent company of MaxCDN), you must provide a written communication that contains your LEGAL SIGNATURE (we cannot process a DMCA complaint without a signature) by email (in PDF format), fax or regular mail that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. Indeed, in a past case (please see http://www.onlinepolicy.org/action/legpolicy/opg_v_diebold/ for more information), a company that sent an infringement notification seeking removal of online materials that were protected by the fair use doctrine was ordered to pay such costs and attorneys fees. The company agreed to pay over $100,000. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.

Please note that in addition to being forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content, a copy of this legal notice will be sent to a third-party which may publish and/or annotate it. As such, your letter (with your personal information removed) may be forwarded to Chilling Effects (http://www.chillingeffects.org). You can see an example of such a publication at http://www.chillingeffects.org/dmca512/notice.cgi?NoticeID=861.

Counter Notifications

The administrator of an affected site or the provider of affected content may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. When MaxCDN receives a counter notification, we may reinstate the material in question. To file a counter notification with MaxCDN or any of our brands, you must provide a written communication that contains your LEGAL SIGNATURE (we cannot process a DMCA complaint without a signature) by email (in PDF format), fax or regular mail that sets for the items specified below. Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorney's fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is not infringing the copyrights of others. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. A sample counter notification may be found at Chilling Effects.

Service Level Agreement

This Service Level Agreement ("SLA") is a policy governing the use of the MaxCDN Service ("CDN Service") under the terms of the Terms of Service (the "MaxCDN Terms of Service") between NetDNA, LLC doing business as "MaxCDN", NetDNA, LLC is a Delaware Limited Liability Company (hereafter referred to as "MaxCDN") and users of MaxCDN's services ("Customer"). This SLA applies separately to each MaxCDN Enterprise account. Unless otherwise provided herein, this SLA is subject to the terms of the MaxCDN Enterprise Agreement and Terms of Service and capitalized terms will have the meaning specified in the MaxCDN Terms of Service. MaxCDN reserves the right to change the terms of this SLA at any time and in its sole discretion in accordance with the MaxCDN Terms of Service. This MaxCDN SLA states and represents Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by MaxCDN to meet the MaxCDN SLA. In the event of any conflict between this SLA and MaxCDN's Enterprise Service Agreement or Terms of Service, the Enterprise Service Agreement or Terms of Service will govern.

Service Commitment

MaxCDN will use commercially reasonable efforts to make CDN Service available with a Monthly Uptime Percentage (defined below) of 100% during any calendar month (the "Service Commitment"). In the event MaxCDN does not meet the Service Commitment, Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below.

Definitions

"Error Rate" means: (i) the total number of internal server errors returned by MaxCDN as error status "Internal Error" or "Service Unavailable" divided by (ii) the total number of requests during that five minute period. MaxCDN will calculate the Error Rate for each MaxCDN account as a percentage for each five minute period in a calendar month. The calculation of the number of internal server errors will not include errors that arise directly or indirectly as a result of any of the MaxCDN SLA Exclusions (as defined below). "Monthly Uptime Percentage" is calculated by subtracting from 100% the average of the Error Rates from each five minute period in the monthly billing cycle. "Service Credit" is a dollar credit, calculated as set forth below, which MaxCDN may add to the end of Customer's term for the Service.

Service Credits

Monthly Uptime Percentage

 
Equal to or greater than 99.999% but less than 100% 5%
Equal to or greater than 99.99% but less than 99.999% 10%
Equal to or greater than 99.9% but less than 99.99% 15%
Equal to or greater than 99% but less than 99.9% 25%
Less than 99% 50%

MaxCDN will apply any Service Credits directly to Customer's MaxCDN Account by adding the Service Credit to the end of Customer's term for the Service. Service Credits shall not entitle Customer to any refund or other payment from MaxCDN. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable calendar month is greater than fifty dollars ($50 USD). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other MaxCDN - Service Level Agreement account. Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability or non-performance of CDN Service or other failure by MaxCDN to provide CDN Service is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA or termination of Customer's use of MaxCDN.

Service Credit Request - Notice Requirement

To receive a Service Credit, Customer must submit a request by emailing: prioritysupport@maxcdn.com with the subject heading: 'SLA Claim'. To be eligible, the credit request must (i) include your account email address; (ii) include the dates and times of each incident of non-zero Error Rates that Customer claims to have experienced; (iii) include your server request logs that document the errors and corroborate your claimed outage (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks); and (iv) be received by MaxCDN within forty-eight (48) hours of MaxCDN's suspected failure to provide 100% uptime under this SLA. If MaxCDN determines that the Monthly Uptime Percentage applicable to the month of such request is less than 100%, then MaxCDN will issue the Service Credit to Customer within one billing cycle following the month in which the error occurred. Customer's failure to timely provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify Customer from receiving a Service Credit.

Exclusions

The Service Commitment does not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of CDN Service, or any other CDN Service performance issues: (i) scheduled, emergency or Customer-requested service interruptions; (ii) caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including any force majeure event or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of any MaxCDN Global Point of Presence, including any denial-of-service attacks on a single or multiple CDN nodes; (iii) that result from any actions or inactions of Customer or any third party; (iv) that result from Customer's equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within our direct control); (v) arising from our suspension and termination of service or Customers right to use CDN Service in accordance with MaxCDN's Terms of Service; (VI) related to Customer maintenance, configurations, negligence, accidents or omissions or use of MaxCDN's network or services in breach of MaxCDN's Terms of Service or Acceptable Use Policy. Under no circumstances will any tests (for example PING tests) performed by Customer, its vendors or partners be recognized by MaxCDN as a valid measurable criterion of violation length, quality or type for the purposes of establishing a service credit hereunder. Failure of Customer to promptly inform MaxCDN of changes to Customer's technical contacts lists may result in the denial of credits under this SLA. The SLA objectives contained herein apply only to MaxCDN CDN customers with a valid and signed MaxCDN Enterprise Service Agreement in good standing; they do not apply to customers of Customer or Customers that signed up using a promotional offer without a signed Enterprise Service Agreement. If availability is impacted by factors other than those used in our calculation of the Error Rate, MaxCDN may issue a Service Credit considering such factors in our sole discretion.
