        3. Incident Submission and Processing

        Customer may submit Incidents 24 hours per day, 365 days per year via the online Support Portal. Customer may also report Incidents by phone during Business Hours.

        Company will direct Customer to a Support center within the corresponding geography (Americas; Europe; or the Asia Pacific region) and responses from Support will be delivered during Business Hours for that geographic region.

        For Premium and Enterprise Support, Customers may report a Severity Level 1 Incident outside of Business Hours via Phone Support. If the Incident is not resolved during Business Hours of the regional Support center to which the Incident is initially reported, and the Incident requires around-the-clock work, Company will transfer the Incident to other Support sites in the United States, Asia, and/or Europe, as needed, to make dedicated resources available on a 24×7 basis to provide information and assist Company Support as needed.

        When notifying Company of any Incident, Customer must provide detailed information about any suspected Error(s), including an example, the context in which it was encountered, details of Customer’s system configuration, and the steps necessary to generate or reproduce the Error. The severity level of an Incident shall be determined by mutual agreement between Customer and Company (using the severity definitions described in these terms). Subject to Customer’s approval on a case-by-case basis, Customers may be asked to provide Company with remote access to the Service.

        For Enterprise Support customers, a Designated Support Engineer will be assigned.  Additional DSEs can be purchased if Customer requires Support for other products. The DSE will be available during normal Business Hours and is responsible for Customer submitted Incidents. In the event the DSE is not available, Company will provide a back-up engineer.

        Enterprise Support customers will be provided access to a Support manager who is available to manage escalated Incidents or coordinating Incidents across time zones for customers with multiple sites in different geographic locations. 

          4. Authorized Technical Contacts and Designated Admins

          Customer will provide technical contacts to Company as reasonably required to provide information, work through instructions, and confirm resolution of the Incident. Customer’s Designated Admins  will be responsible for interfacing with Company Support personnel. Each technical contact must be familiar with the Software and be capable of performing necessary administrative functions.
