We do not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure service, and we are not liable if you are unable to access your Buzzoodle account or our services. If any provision of these Terms of Service is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision shall be struck and the remaining provisions shall be enforced. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.

Hosting Service Level Agreement (“SLA”)

  1. Buzzoodle hosts all sites in state of the art data centers.  Our providers guarantee hosting to 99% or more.  Because the data center is not in our control, we cannot guarantee uptime.  Uptime includes the functioning of all network infrastructure within  datacenter facilities, the web server, database server servers, email server, and the software that is run on those servers (collectively, the “Service Provider Network”). Downtime exists when Client is unable to visit the website or login in to the web application as a result of a failure of the Service Provider Network. This Service Level Agreement does not cover Client’s connection to the Internet or any systems or software outside of the Service Provider Network.
  2. If for some reason the Hosting Service does not meet your standards, Client may request a refund in the amount of 5% of their monthly fee for each 30 minutes of continuous downtime (up to 50% of Client’s monthly fee). Alternatively, if no single period of downtime was 30 minutes or greater, Client may request a refund equal to the percentage of downtime during the affected month multiplied by Client’s monthly service fee. In either case, such refund will be Client’s sole remedy for the failure of Service Provider to maintain 99% uptime during a given month.
