User acknowledges and agrees that the services provided under the Subscription or at the Site may not be available at all times. SlideSource will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Site and Subscription available for access and use, as contemplated under this Agreement, an average of at least ninety-nine percent (99%) of the time during each month during the Term (the “Availability Requirement”), excluding any period of Permitted Unavailability. “Permitted Unavailability” includes “Planned Outages (as defined below) and any unavailability due to causes beyond SlideSource’s reasonable control, including, without limitation: any software, hardware, or telecommunication failures; interruption or failure of telecommunication or digital transmission links; internet slow-downs or failures; failures or default of third-party software, vendors or products; and unavailability resulting from User’s actions or omissions or a failure of User’s communications link or systems. “Planned Outages” means the period of time during which SlideSource conducts standard systems maintenance and any instances requiring emergency maintenance. SlideSource will use reasonable efforts to scheduled Planned Outages during non-peak hours. In the event SlideSource fails to achieve the Availability Requirement, it will use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the interruption as promptly as practicable. In the event SlideSource fails to achieve the Availability Requirement in two consecutive months during the Term of this Agreement, User may terminate the Agreement upon delivery of written notice to SlideSource without further obligation and received a prorated refund of any pre-paid, unused Subscription Fees. The refund is the User’s sole and exclusive remedy and SlideSource’s sole and exclusive liability for failure to achieve the Availability Requirement.
SlideSource may designate certain trial services to be made available in connection with the Subscription as “Beta Services.” The Beta Services will not be ready for use in a production environment. Because they will be at an early stage of development, operation and use of the Beta Services may be unpredictable and lead to erroneous results. User acknowledges and agrees that: (i) the Beta Services will be experimental and will not have been fully tested; (ii) the Beta Services may not meet all User requirements; (iii) the use or operation of the Beta Services may not be uninterrupted or error free; and (iv) use of the Beta Services will be for purposes of evaluating and testing the new functionality and services and providing feedback to SlideSource. Use of the Beta Services will be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement relating to the Services. User agrees to promptly report any errors, defects, or other deficiencies in the Beta Services to SlideSource. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, ALL BETA SERVICES ARE PROVIDED "AS-IS" AND "AS-AVAILABLE," WITHOUT WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AND USER AGREES TO USE THE BETA SERVICES AT USER’S SOLE RISK. User waives any and all claims, now known or later discovered, that it may have against SlideSource, its suppliers and licensors arising out of the Beta Services.
