BACKUP & RECOVERY POLICY

Overview

This document is PureClarity’s Backup Policy. It is the property of PureClarity and is a controlled document.

Our core service operates within a cloud environment hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The AWS Infrastructure and the PureClarity platform have resilience and redundancy built in, therefore the likely impact on our service is low. The PureClarity platform has to operate 99.99% uptime. To mitigate any risk of service interruption the platform is monitored 365/24/7.

This Backup & Recovery policy forms part of the company’s ISO 9001 Quality Management System (QMS – certificate number 206024). The associated data security protection forms part of the company’s ISO27001 Information Security Management system (ISMS – certificate number 206109).

Aims & Scope

This policy’s aim is to protect all customer Data that is collected, stored and processed by the PureClarity platform from lost and ensure that Data that is backed up can be recovered. This includes both Raw Data and Meta Data.

Procedures

The following back-up and recovery procedures are in place:

  • All Raw Data and Meta Data is backed up once a day.
  • The recovery process is tested every quarter.

Definitions

Data: Collectively the Raw Data, Content and the Meta Data.
Meta Data: the aggregated data derived from analyzing the Visitors’ behavior.
PCJS: means the PureClarity JavaScript Snippet, which is installed on the customer’s Property for the purpose of collecting Raw Data.
Property: means any web page, app, or other online information technology property under the customer’s control that sends data to the Software.
Raw Data: the initial tracked data collected by the PCJS.

EMAIL ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

Overview

This Acceptable Use Policy describes prohibited uses and bounce and complaint limitations of the PureClarity Personalized Email service and its Email Service Providers (the “Service”). The examples described in this Policy are not exhaustive. We may modify this Policy at any time by posting a revised version on the PureClarity Support Center. By using the service or accessing the PureClarity Email System, you agree to the latest version of this Policy. If you violate the Policy we may suspend or terminate your use of the Service.

Prohibited Content

You will not create content within the Service and distribute, publish or facilitate the sending of unsolicited mail or other messages, promotions, advertising, or solicitations (like “spam”), including commercial advertising and informational announcements.

Please don’t use PureClarity to send anything offensive, to promote anything illegal, or to harass anyone. You may not send:

  • Emails offering to sell illegal goods or services
  • Emails that violate CAN-SPAM Laws
  • Offensive or Harmful content
  • Infringing content

Complaints and Bounces

We take email complaints and bounces seriously. As the Service is used by multiple organisations high bounce and complaint rates caused by individual applications could ultimately impact the deliverability of the system as a whole. Therefore PureClarity attempts to automatically blacklist any email address that results in a bounce or a complaint. As a guide we aim to keep bounce rates under 5% and complaints under 0.1%. You must ensure that previously unsubscribed emails, that you are aware of, have been imported into the PureClarity Email System and ensure any changes to a user’s email preferences are pushed to PureClarity using the PureClarity API or by regularly importing updates in the PureClarity administration console.

Thank you for taking the time to read our Acceptable Use Policy.

Service Levels

The Service Levels that the PureClarity Support Team aim to achieve are as follows:

Level 1: Critical

Response Time: 15 minutes.

Resolution Time: 2 working hours from notification of problem.

N.B. Our architecture is monitored 365/24/7 and the architecture has redundancy built in. Engineers are notified immediately if their is degradation of the service.

Level 2: High

Where parts of the core data are not rendering correctly (e.g. a missing product or category information) but the solution is mainly operating correctly. This could be due to issues with data feeds from the Client’s 3rd party systems.

Response Time: 2 working hours from notification.

Response Time: 3 working hours from notification.

Resolution Time: 24 working hours from notification.

Resolution Times

Should a Resolution to any problem not be achievable within the resolution timeframe due to the physical length of time required to complete the fix or by factors outside of the control of PureClarity, the Client shall be duly notified of this and advised of the earliest possible resolution time.

Request for Information and Advice

We aim to respond to request for information as soon as possible and normally within 8 working hours of any request.

Service Credits

For each full sixty minutes that application is deemed to be a Level 1 Critical Incident (defined at PureClarity’s discretion) PureClarity shall give the Client a service credit equal to 1 day of the annual subscription fee up to 10% of the Client’s annual hosting fee (“Service Credit”).

Cash refunds shall not be provided.

Downtime is measured from the moment the Client notifies PureClarity’s help desk of a Level 1 critical incident to the time the application responds. Notification of Level 1 critical incident must occur at the time of the outage and not after the fact.

In order for the Client to receive a Service Credit on the Client account, the Client shall request in writing such credit within ten (10) business days after the Outage.

Total service credits within any 12 month term will be limited to 10% of the Client’s annual subscription fee.
