This Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) is part of the Software as a Service-agreement between the Customer and Marvia (“Agreement”). Marvia recommends the Customer to review the SLA online periodically.
This SLA describes the levels of product availability and support that the Customer can expect from Marvia for Agreement’s duration.
The following terms, as used in this SLA, have the meanings specified below. In this SLA, the singular includes the plural and vice versa; the words “month”, “quarter”, and “year” mean a calendar month, calendar quarter, and calendar year, unless stated otherwise and the word “including” means “including without limitation”.
The period during which the Product is not available to the Customer, including maintenance outside the Maintenance Hours communicated to affected customers less than 24 hours in advance. However, downtime does not include:
|Help Center||Marvia’s help portal on the Marvia website (support.getmarvia.com) that publishes information about performing tasks in the Product.|
|Incident||If the Customer makes a Level A, B, or C report.|
|Maintenance Hours||Take place outside Office Hours.|
|Office Hours||Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Not included: Dutch public holidays.|
|Planned Maintenance||Planned outages, whereby the service is entirely or partially discontinued, which Marvia intends to announce at least 5 days in advance, and in any case will announce at least 24 hours in advance, which will not exceed a reasonable period and which, where possible, will take place during Maintenance Hours.|
|Reduced Performance||Lower quality of service as described in this SLA (e.g. temporarily disconnected or temporarily unavailable functionality).|
|Resolution Time||The time from the Response Time until the Incident is reported as resolved by Marvia.|
|Response Time||The time that elapses between receiving a notification and the time that Marvia confirms the notification.|
|SLA Effective Date||The Project Start Date, as stated in the Agreement and the date on which this SLA comes into effect.|
|Ticket||An electronic request sent by the Customer to Marvia (e.g. request for resolution of Incident).|
|Uptime||As calculated in accordance with this SLA.|
This SLA applies only to the Product and Professional Services described in the Agreement. This SLA does not apply to software, equipment, services, or other parts of an information technology system that is not purchased or managed by Marvia.
Marvia will correct material issues with the Product, except when:
The issue is caused by User(s), including by modifying part of the software or by adding, deleting, or assigning improper rights to Users.
This SLA is effective from the Project Start Date and will be terminated without further notice and without entitlement to compensation or restitution upon expiration or termination of the Agreement.
Marvia guarantees an Uptime van 99,9%, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Uptime is measured based on the monthly average of availability, rounded down to the nearest minute, and calculated as follows:
|Agreed Hours of Service - Hours of Downtime|
|Uptime % =||---------------------------------------------------------||* 100%|
|Agreed Hours of Service|
In the event of a report, Marvia is deemed to have responded to the first request of the Customer. This may be in the form of an email or phone call to acknowledge receipt of the Customer's request, provide a solution, or request more information.
The Response Time and Resolution Time depend on the priority of the affected items(s) and the severity of the report, as set out in the following schedules:
|Type||The severity of the problem||Response Time||Resolution Time|
|Level A||Very critical. Product is not available for use, or a significant portion of the contracted functionalities are not available.||Within 1 hour||24 hours maximum|
|Level B||Critical. One or more elements of the Product that are critical to the functioning of the Customer no longer respond completely or respond very slowly.||Within 8 hours||48 hours maximum|
|Level C||Disturbing, not critical. One or more elements of the Product stop responding completely or slowly and a workaround is available.||Within 24 hours||4 workdays maximum|
A Premium SLA is also available:
|Type||The severity of the problem||Response Time||Resolution Time|
|Level A||Very critical. Product is not available for use, or a significant portion of the contracted functionalities are not available.||Within 1 hour||12 hours maximum|
|Level B||Critical. One or more elements of the Product that are critical to the functioning of the Customer no longer respond completely or respond very slowly.||Within 4 hours||24 hours maximum|

Marvia’s Products are hosted at Amazon Web Services (AWS) facilities in Frankfurt (EU-central-1) called AWS S3. Amazon S3 offers the possibility to store an almost unlimited amount of data with guaranteed data durability of 99.999999999% and 99.99% availability for a given year.
Marvia Support regularly analyzes all Customer Tickets to identify trends and bottlenecks. Based on these findings, the support department updates the training and knowledge base.
To respond to frequently asked questions and help Customers resolve common issues without direct assistance from Support, Marvia maintains the Help Center on the Marvia website (support.getmarvia.com).
For regular support, Marvia is available from Monday to Friday from 08.00 to 18:00 through a ticket system via firstname.lastname@example.org or +31(0)20 716 2810. An escalation model is available for incidents outside office hours.
Data security is essential to Marvia. The security of our Product and Services parallels industry standards and compliance. Our Security Policy is available online.
The Marvia team secures backups of all data and code in the following way:
Marvia works with so-called releases. New features are developed according to the following principle:
By working with the DTAP protocol, the impact of releases is minimal on performance/Uptime. Releases do not time out the environment; the User can continue working in the application during a release.
Marvia will make new versions, releases, and updates of the Product available to the Customer to resolve defects and/or errors, to keep the Product up to date with market developments, or otherwise improve (the operation or functionality) of the Product.
New versions, releases, or updates contain at least the level of functionality as set out in this SLA and as in the version or release of the Product previously used by the Customer, and do not otherwise adversely affect the use of the Product by the Customer. Marvia will make reasonable efforts to ensure that the performance of such actions limits the impact on the Customer and User(s).
|Internet connection||The User must have a good working internet connection.|
|Webbrowser||Marvia supports the web browser IE11, Edge, Firefox (2 most recent versions), Google Chrome (2 most recent versions), and Safari (2 most recent versions).|
|Cache||The web browser’s cache settings must be writable (this is standard, but Users can turn this off).|
On request, Marvia issues a monthly report of Service Level A as well as all Level A, B, and C Incidents reported by the Customer, including response and resolution times.
Marvia works with the cyclical evaluation model listed below.
|Strategic||Brand Manager, Marketing Manager, or similar||CEO/CTO||Direction, roadmap choices||Half-yearly|
|Tactical||Project Manager||Customer Success Manager||Backlog, monitoring SLA, input roadmap, 3-weekly sprint review, escalation complaints||Biweekly|
|Operational||Admin||Customer Support||Support questions, training, education, 1st line complaints||Ongoing|
