1.10 “Update” means a Software release that Unravel makes generally available to its customers,
along with any corresponding changes to Documentation. An Update may be an error correction

2.1 Scope of Support; Updates. Upon payment of the Fees, and provided you are using the
Software in accordance with the Documentation, Unravel will provide you with either Standard or
Premium Support, depending on the Plan indicated on the applicable Order Schedule for the
Software you are ordering. As part of providing such Support, we will: (i) use commercially
reasonable efforts to correct any material, reproducible bugs, defects or errors in the Software (an
“ Error ”) that you make us aware of during the Subscription Term, on such days and times as are
specified in Section 2.3, below; and (ii) provide you with Updates, as and when Unravel makes
such Updates generally available to its customers. Updates will be made 100418vF available to
you via the Unravel customer portal. You are responsible for installing any Updates.
2.2 Support Contacts. You will designate at least one individual (a “ Support Contact “), with current
phone and email contact information, to serve as a liaison with Unravel to request and receive
Support. If you have ordered the Standard Support Plan, then you may designate up to two (2)
Support Contacts. If you have ordered the Premium Support Plan, then you may designate up to
four (4) Support Contacts. All of your Support requests must be initiated through a Support
Contact. To avoid interruptions in Support, please notify Unravel in writing whenever you transfer
Support Contact responsibilities to another individual. Unravel will have no obligation to provide
Support to anyone who is not a Support Contact.
2.3 Support Plans. Your Order Schedule will indicate the Plan you have chosen. If you have chosen
the Standard Support Plan, Support will be available during Regular Business Hours. If you have
chosen the Premium Support Plan, Support will be available 24/7.
2.4 Requesting and Receiving Support. Both Standard and Premium Support Plans allow you to
seek Support via email or through the Support Portal (as defined below). Email requests for
Support should be sent to [email protected] Support may also be requested through
our online portal found https://www.unraveldata.zendesk.com/hc/en-us (the “ Support Portal ”). All
Support will be provided in English. Unravel will use commercially reasonable efforts to
communicate with your Support Administrator within the applicable Initial Response Times set
forth in the table below, depending on which Support Plan you have ordered. Note that a
“response” means an acknowledgment of receipt of the ticket by Unravel (the “ Initial
Response ”), and beginning to work on your issue – it does not necessarily mean that Unravel will
be able to resolve the issue within that timeframe. After the Initial Response, Unravel will provide
status updates on the issue until (i) the issue is resolved; (ii) the issue is downgraded to a lower
Severity Level (in which case the nature and frequency of status updates for the new Severity
Level may be different than what was provided for the higher Severity Level); or (iii) the parties
agree on an alternative update schedule. If you have ordered our Standard Support Plan rather
than our Premium Support Plan, then Support requests submitted outside of Regular Business
Hours will be dealt with when Regular Business Hours resume.
2.5 Initial Response Times and Update Frequency.
|Severity Level||Initial Response Time SLA for Standard Plan||Initial Response Time SLA for Premium Plan|
|Severity 1 – Production Down||1 Regular Business Hour||1 Hour|
|Severity 2 – Core Feature Inoperative||4 Regular Business Hours||4 Hours|
|Severity 3 – Minor Feature Inoperative||1 Business Day||1 Business Day|
|Severity 4 – Request for Information||1 Business Day||1 Business Day|
2.6 Designation of Severity Level. The severity level will be established based upon your request,
provided that Unravel reserves the right to reclassify the severity level of a Support request at any
time if Unravel reasonably believes the classification is incorrect . Severity levels can only be set
by you when you request Support via the Support Portal. As a result, any Support requests sent
via email will automatically be set at Severity 4 (Low). If you believe your Support request is for a
higher severity level, you should ensure that you submit your request via the Support Portal
rather than via email.
Severity 1 (S1): An S1 is a major Error within the software that severely impacts the Customer’s use of the Software, where the production system is totally down or not fully functioning or mission critical applications or Unravel is not usable and no workaround exists or there is loss of data. Unravel promptly initiates the following procedures: (a) assigns support specialists to correct the Error on an expedited basis; (b) provides ongoing communication on the status of the issue; and (c) begins to provide a temporary workaround or fix. Unravel responds to S1 production down issues within an hour of issue receipt. All S1 issues must be logged on the Unravel Customer Portal.
Severity 2 (S2): An S2 is a medium to high impact Error within the software where the customer’s production system is functioning but in a degraded or restricted capacity, such as a problem that is causing significant impact to portions of the Customer’s business operations and productivity or major functionality is inoperable. Unravel (a) assigns an Unravel support specialist to correct the Error on an expedited basis and (b) provides ongoing communication on the status of the issue. Unravel exercises commercially reasonable efforts to provide a workaround or include a fix for the Severity 2 Errors in a forthcoming Maintenance or Patch Release.

Unravel responds to S3 issues next business day. All S3 issues must be logged on the Unravel Customer Portal.
Severity 4 (S4): An S4 is a low priority request for information where there is no impact to business operations. This could include a ‘how to’ product question, a need to clarify procedures or information in documentation, a request for a product enhancement or an administrative request relating to the Unravel Customer Portal. Unravel responds to Severity 4 requests within one (1) business day of issue receipt.
