Our Commitment to You
CuteSoft is committed to bringing you the best possible tools and services designed
to meet your needs and expectations. We promise you that our ZChat Application
Services will be available at least 99.9% of the time, excluding those periods where
we conduct regularly scheduled maintenance or where unforeseeable and unavoidable
service outages occur due to Internet, router, or Internet Service Provider related
downtime outside of our control. While we are not and cannot be responsible for
your own connection to the Internet, or the functionality of your own private systems
or software existing outside of our ZChat Network, we guarantee that you will,
except for those conditions mentioned above, be able to access ZChat Application
Services 99.9% of the time.
If for some reasons ZChat Application Services do not meet our stringent
standard of availability, you may request a refund in the amount of 5% of your Monthly
License Fee for each 30 minutes of continuous downtime. This guarantee is limited
to a sum no greater than the amount that equals 50% of your Monthly License Fee.
In the alternative, if no single period of downtime was 30 minutes are longer in
duration, you may request a refund equal to the percentage of actual downtime that
took place during the affected month multiplied by the amount of your Monthly License
Fee. Although you may elect either remedy, either refund is your sole remedy for
the failure of CuteSoft to maintain 99.9% availability, subject to the limitations
above stated, during any given calendar month. Refunds will be issued in the form
of a credit towards your next invoice, unless the affected month was pre-established
by you as your final month of service, and you have informed us of that in writing
prior to the service outage and in such cases your refund will be issued via check
or credit card order (at our sole option) within 60 days of your request and upon
our verification of the service outage, including the actual amount of downtime.
