1. The Services

Service Description. HostedPMM is a cloud-based software platform which allows customers to provision, configure and manage servers with Percona Management and Monitoring® (“PMM”) – an open source database management and monitoring software package. HostedPMM will provide the Services to Customer substantially as set out on the HostedPMM websites, documentation and in this Agreement.

The Services may include features or services that have separate rules specific to the feature or service. You will comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to the use of the Services and any additional feature or service you use. You understand and agree that we may change, suspend or discontinue any part or all of the Services. We will notify you of any material change to or discontinuation of the Services by email or via our website.

Beta Release. The Services or some features of the Services may be in preview, testing, or “beta” phase (each, a “Beta Release”), for the purpose of evaluating performance, identifying defects and obtaining feedback. We will take reasonable measures to visually indicate Beta Release services and features in the user interface of the Services. Beta Release services may not be as reliable or as available as the Services. Customer uses Beta Release services and features in its sole discretion and at its own risk. We will not be liable for any damages in connection with your use of any Beta Release services or features. You are not required to use any Beta Release, and we have no obligation to release a final version of any Beta Release.

Support. The Services include email support with responses provided on a best-effort basis without any guaranteed service levels. We will use reasonable commercial efforts to correct at no additional charge any reproducible errors reported by Customer as soon as possible. We will review all requests for improvements and new functionality, but will have no obligation to provide any modifications to the Services. If Customer is entitled to receive specialized support services via an executed Order Form then such services will be provided in accordance with such agreed service levels. A failure to comply with any service level will not be construed to be a breach of this Agreement, but may give Customer the right to receive compensation as set out in such Order Form. Such compensation will be Customer’s sole remedy and HostedPMM’s sole liability as regards any non-compliance with any service levels. 

Access to the Service. Customer may access and use the Services in accordance with these

Terms, and the documentation. Use of and access to the Services is permitted only by Customer, and if Customer is an organization, only by the personnel of Customer organization designated by Customer (“Users”). Customer may permit its independent contractors and consultants (“Contractors”) and affiliates to serve as Users provided that any use of the Services by each such Contractor or affiliate is solely for the benefit of Customer. Customer will be responsible for compliance by each User with all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Any data provided by a User that is uploaded to the Services is Customer Data for the purposes of this Agreement.

2. Registration and Your Account

To register to use the Services, you must create a username and password and provide us with the information requested in the registration process. You must provide complete and accurate information during the registration process and regularly update your information to ensure it remains accurate.

Services Fees. We calculate and bill fees and charges as set out in the Order Form (if any is executed) or as described in the pricing information on our website (hostedpmm.com) (“Pricing Page”).

For monthly charges, we may bill Customer more frequently for fees accrued if we believe there is a risk of non-payment or if we suspect that Customer’s account is fraudulent. 

We may increase or add new fees and charges for the Services by updating the Pricing Page unless otherwise set out in the Order Form (if any). In the event that we change the pricing for the Services the fees payable by Customer will increase or decrease in accordance with any such modification upon the date specified on the Pricing Page. 

Late Payments. All fees are payable upon receipt and overdue thirty (30) days thereafter. We may charge Customer interest at the rate of 1% per month or the highest rate permitted by law on any overdue amounts.

Customer will pay us the applicable fees and charges for use of the Services using its credit card. All amounts paid are non-refundable. 

Taxes. All fees and charges payable by Customer are exclusive of applicable taxes and duties, including VAT and applicable sales tax. Customer will provide us any information we reasonably request to determine whether we are obligated to collect VAT from Customer, including Customer’s VAT identification number. If any deduction or withholding is required by law, Customer will notify us and will pay us any additional amounts necessary to ensure that the net amount that we receive, after any deduction and withholding, equals the amount we would have received if no deduction or withholding had been required.
