8.2 BankBI may place information concerning You on a database for internal use only. BankBI will never disclose Your details to any third party unless required to do so by law.
8.3 The BankBI Application runs in multiple identical Azure environments and Authorised Users are directed to the closest geographical environment when accessing the Site. In the event of an Azure environment failure all users of that environment will be redirected to an alternative, operational environment until the failed environment is restored according to the terms described in Schedule A attached.
8.4 BankBI databases are located in the Azure data centre geographically closest to Your main base of operations and backups are replicated at alternative, geographically separate Azure data centres.

The Application will then be reconfigured to use this restored database according to the terms described in Schedule A attached.
8.5 Data required for the day to day operation of the Application are stored in Azure SQL databases. These databases are continually backed up with log backups and held for a number of weeks for use by ‘point in time restore’ functionality allowing databases to be restored to any point over that time period should it be required.
8.6 Catastrophic loss of an Azure environment is mitigated by restoring geographically redundant data backups to an alternative operating region. Further to the BankBI Application databases, Your uploaded Data files are also stored in geographically redundant storage. In a ‘worst case’ scenario, BankBI is able to rebuild an organisation’s reporting database by re-importing them according to the terms described in Schedule A attached.
8.7 The Data will be stored by BankBI in the Azure Geography specified in the Order Form.

As between You and BankBI, BankBI shall remain fully liable for all acts or omissions of any third-party processor appointed by it pursuant to this clause 9.5. BankBI shall inform You of any intended changes concerning the addition or replacement of the processors, thereby giving You the opportunity to object to such changes provided that if You object to the changes and cannot demonstrate, to BankBI’s reasonable satisfaction, that the objection is due to an actual or likely breach of Data Protection Legislation, You shall indemnify BankBI for any losses, damages, costs (including legal fees) and expenses suffered by BankBI in accommodating the objection.

Schedule A: Service Level Agreement
This service level and support agreement is incorporated by reference into the BankBI software license agreement together with the attached terms and conditions (together, the “Agreement”), and is subject to the terms and conditions described therein. Any capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined will have the meaning ascribed to them in the Agreement.
- Service Level Agreement (SLA).
- “Availability” of the Application is defined and measured as follows: the Application will be available for user login 99% of the time in any calendar quarter except for the Excluded categories as provided below. The Application Availability will be calculated per calendar quarter as follows:
Total – Excluded ≥ 99%
- Total means the total number of hours between 9am to midnight (GMT) for the quarter; and
- “Excluded” means any of the following:
- Any planned Downtime (“Downtime”, for purposes of measuring service levels related to the Availability of the Application, shall mean any time that any of the servers are not functioning or accessible during the quarter), including Upgrades (defined as a significant change, major improvement, or additional functionality with respect to the Application), of which BankBI gives eight (8) hours or more notice; BankBI will use commercially reasonable efforts to schedule all planned Downtime during non-working hours;
- Any unavailability of the Application caused by circumstances beyond BankBI’s reasonable control, including without limitation a force majeure event, Your accident, abuse, or use of the Application in a manner inconsistent with the Documentation, Your failure to comply with the Agreement, Your failure to meet minimum system requirements for the Application, and failure caused by You and/or Your third party providers does not count towards Downtime; and
- Any unavailability of the Application due to emergency maintenance, including but not limited to security patch installation. BankBI may not provide You with advance notice of emergency maintenance. Loss of Availability of the Application due to emergency maintenance is not considered Downtime.
For any partial calendar quarter during which You subscribe to the Application, Availability will be calculated based on hours for the entire calendar quarter, not just the portion for which You subscribed.
- Should BankBI fail to meet 99% Availability of the Application for a calendar quarter, You may receive one full day of additional Application subscription usage at the end of the Subscription Term in which the failure occurred for each 2 hour period of Application unavailability below 99%, up to a maximum of 30 additional days. The remedy specified in this Section shall be the sole remedy available to You for breach of this SLA.
- Reporting and Claims. Upon request, BankBI will provide You with a report detailing the Availability of the Application in the prior calendar quarter, as applicable. To file a claim under this SLA, You must contact BankBI and provide the following information in reasonable detail:
- Billing information, including Your name, billing address, billing contact and billing contact phone number
- An explanation of the claim made under this Agreement including any relevant calculations.
Claims may only be made on a calendar quarter basis within thirty (30) days of the end of the relevant quarter, except for periods immediately prior to the end of the Term of the Agreement that do not coincide with a calendar quarter, in which case You must make any claim within thirty (30) days after the end of the Term. All claims must be verified against BankBI’s system records. Should any periods of unavailability of Application submitted by You be disputed, the parties shall resolve the dispute in accordance with the Agreement.
- Technical Support and Incident Severity.
You agree to provide a named individual as the primary contact for technical support issue communications and escalations. Support ticket requests for the Application are available via the application user interface or directly to the support staff at email@example.com. You must make staff available within the response time (defined below) to assist with problem clarification, debugging and resolution. If Your staff are not available, or if Your staff do not respond to communications in a timely fashion, BankBI reserves the right to downgrade the severity of the reported issue. Before opening a support ticket, Your technical staff must first confirm that Your environmental issues (software, laptops, etc.), or network issues (ISP, firewalls, etc.) are not a contributing factor or cause of the problem. Your technicians must classify incidents when opening a support ticket in accordance with the following severity level incident definitions. They must also provide phone, email, and contact information for the incident.
1 - Critical
Critical production issue, including complete product unavailability, serious data integrity issues, or significant impacts with critical time dependencies. Examples:
· No users or systems can connect to the BankBI product or service subscribed to.
· A product or service malfunctions such that a significant portion of users cannot perform critical tasks and there is no reasonable workaround.
· The application has a security related error.

Major functionality is impacted, or significant performance degradation is experienced that renders the application unusable. Issue is persistent and affects multiple users and/or major functionality. Time criticality is lower. No reasonable workaround.
3 - Medium
