8. Service Availability and Service Interruptions

8.1. Service Availability. Qreuz makes the Service available permanently from the interface to the internet at the computing center on which the server with the software is located (“Point of Transfer”). The contractual obligations of Qreuz with respect to the Service cover User access to the executable software in its current version, the relevant computing capacity, and the relevant storage on a server which is accessible over the internet for you.  Qreuz will not accept any responsibility or liability for the data connection between your IT-systems and the defined Point of Transfer. For the Free Tier, unless otherwise stipulated by specific Agreement, the Service is provided on an “as available” basis and Qreuz does not warrant any Uptime of the Service; for paid Subscriptions, the Parties will conclude a separate Service Level Agreement (SLA).

8.2. Interruption announcement. You must report to Qreuz Interruptions of the Service in a clear and detailed manner, stating in writing all the information that is useful for identifying and analyzing the Interruption. Your Interruption report shall state in particular procedural steps that led to the occurrence of the Interruption, how the Interruption manifested itself, and also the effects of the Interruption. Qreuz will categorize announced Interruptions based on the categorization agreed upon in the following provisions of Clause 8.3.
Qreuz offers a dedicated contact address to announce Service’s Interruptions: interruption@qreuz.com

8.3. Service Interruption Categories. The Parties agree on the following “Service Interruption Categories”:
a) Fatal Outage. “Fatal Outages” are Interruptions of the Service that Qreuz is responsible for that make it impossible for the User to access the Service. The User cannot work around this type of Interruption in a reasonable manner and therefore, urgent business tasks cannot be completed.
b) Incident. An “Incident” is an Interruption of the Service that Qreuz is responsible for and that impedes the User from accessing the Service, or interrupts User access to the Service completely but not severely enough to fit the meaning of a Fatal Outage.
c) Bug Report. Notifications about Interruptions that are not serious enough to be categorized as either Fatal Outages or Incidents are categorized as “Bug Reports”.

8.4. Resolving Interruptions. Unless specified otherwise, including, but not limited to, within a separate Service Level Agreement, in the case of Fatal Outages or Incidents, that occur during Support Hours, Qreuz will immediately (no later than 2 (two) hours after receiving a User report) initiate measures to localize the reason for the Interruption. If the Interruption is not part of the Service as made available to you within the meaning of Clause 8.1, Qreuz will notify you. If the Interruption is part of the Service within the meaning of Clause 8.1, Qreuz will make commercially reasonable efforts to resolve the Interruption and restore your access to the Service.

9. Support

9.4. Feature Requests and Feedback. Qreuz will accept feature requests and feedback about the Service (“Service Feature Requests”). If you send a Service Feature Request to us, you thereby grant to Qreuz a worldwide, unrestricted, perpetual, royalty-free, irrevocable, and non-exclusive right to use, copy, store, transmit, modify, create derivative works from, display, and exploit the Service Feature Request in any manner and for any purpose, including for purposes of improving or extending the Service and/or creating new products.

10. Confidentiality

10.1. Obligation to Confidentiality. You and Qreuz are obligated to keep confidential indefinitely all business and operating secrets, as well as information marked confidential in connection with the execution of your Agreement. Unless the disclosure of such confidential information to third-parties is expressly permitted by your Agreement, or required to use or provide the Service, as described either in the Documentation or in these Terms of Service, such a disclosure is only permitted with the written consent of the other contractual partner.
Unless otherwise stipulated by specific Agreement, this obligation to confidentiality ends after the passage of 5 (five) calendar years since the disclosure of the applicable information.
