Text API Service Level Agreement
Aylien agrees to provide Enterprise Subscribers the service credits outlined in this Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) if Aylien fails to meet the metrics outlined herein. Unless otherwise indicated, the metrics set forth in this SLA apply only to Enterprise offerings as defined herein.
Aylien API shall be available to Subscribers 99.5% of the time in any calendar month. In the event Subscriber experiences any of the Service performance issues defined below due to the unavailability of Services, Subscriber will be eligible to receive Service Credits.
Available means that our API is available for you to use in the way we intend upon your first request, or within a 30 second window of your second request
Downtime means the number of minutes in a month when our API is not Available for a Subscriber (excluding Permitted Downtime).
Enterprise Subscriber refers to subscribers to the fourth tier of service level (“Large”) or above as listed at Aylien Text API Pricing.
Permitted Downtime means the number of minutes in the month during which our API is not Available as a result of:
- planned maintenance
- unavailability of the Data to us
- interruptions that are outside of our reasonable control
- your account being suspended or closed
We will try to place a warning on our site 48 hours in advance of site maintenance.
Month means the total number of minutes in each month, less Permitted Downtime
Monthly Uptime Percentage means total number of minutes in a calendar month minus the number of minutes of Downtime that have occurred in a calendar month, divided by total number of minutes in a calendar month.
Service means the Aylien API service provided by Aylien to Subscriber under the Agreement.
Availability and Service Credit hours will be measured as follows:
|Service Level||Availability Measure||Credit|
|99.5% availability per month||Measured by our monitoring systems at the end-points of our API, and calculated as follows:
% availability = ((Month – Downtime) x100) / Month
|If the availability % is less than 99.5%, you will be entitled to Service Credit hours that are equivalent to the period of Downtime that is below our 99.5% service level, rounded up to the nearest hour|
Subscriber Service Credit Request
In order to receive Service Credits, Subscriber must notify Aylien within thirty (30) days from the time Subscriber believes it is eligible to receive a Service Credit. Failure to comply with this requirement will forfeit Subscriber’s right to receive a Service Credit.
Maximum Service Credit

Service Credits may not be exchanged for, or converted to, monetary compensation.
