Subscription Agreement & Terms of Service
Your subscription allows your company & affiliates to make use of the OrgChart services as long as you have an active subscription. Support and maintenance are included with all active subscriptions. Access to all software updates and patches is included with all active subscriptions.
Maintenance & Support
Maintenance and Support includes e-mail and phone support. We respond to most requests same business day. In most cases we can resolve any questions same day and will give you a support status call on any issue that is reported within 1 business day.
Training is typically provided via web meeting software but can provided on-site for an additional fee. We request that an individual within your company serve as a single point of contact to coordinate the training and use of the software. While we can provide the training session for all users, we find that the ‘train the trainer’ model works best.
Your OrgChart account will be activated upon receipt of payment or purchase order.
For cloud customers, we strive to make sure that OrgChart is available 99.8% (or more) of the time during a monthly period. In order to achieve this goal, we select hosting providers that provide a service commitment of 99.9% (or more). We use commercially reasonable methods such as monitoring services to notify our team of any down time so that we can quickly address any interruptions to our service. Service credits are not available per our standard subscription agreement. An ESLA (Enhanced Service Level Agreement) is available upon request. Email us at [email protected] if you would like to inquire about an ESLA.
Backup & Recovery
We rely on our hosting providers to provide backup services. Our servers are backed up on a daily basis. In the event of a catastrophic failure, we will restore a system from storage within one business day of failure. On premise customers are responsible for the backup of their servers.
