The details and response times relating to each of the different Helpdesk Services are set forth below.
2. Helpdesk and Support Definitions.
“Business Hours” are defined as the operating hours (being 9AM – 6PM Monday-Friday) in the time zone that corresponds with Customer’s billing address as stated in the applicable Order Form or SOW, excluding public holidays.
“ETA” means the estimated length of time it will take to address the Incident via deployment of mitigation procedures.
“First Response” means the period between the time when the Incident was reported in full, and the time when an acknowledgement via ticket was made by any of Docebo’s personnel.
“Incident” means any incorrect functioning of the Services which results in the failure of the Services to operate in full compliance with the standards set out in the Agreement.

Docebo may, re-categorise any Incident based on additional information and shall communicate such re-categorisation to the Customer. Prior to reporting an Incident, the Customer will have investigated and eliminated any internet or environment issues arising from its equipment, or for which it has responsibility (e.g. internet connectivity).
Table 1 – Severity Descriptions
Critical production issue affecting all users, including system unavailability, with no workaround available.
Issue is persistent, affects many users and/or impacts core functionality or results in significant performance degradation with no reasonable workaround available.
Errors in functionality within the application, often accompanied by workarounds or affecting some but not all users.
General inquiries on the use of the application; or cosmetic errors or incidents which otherwise do not require immediate attention; or rare errors that appear during unusual conditions or are otherwise unlikely in normal use; or errors which have a sustainable workaround.

Within 5 Hours.
6 Business Hours

- Urgent SLA applies only to issues submitted via “Support Web Form” (which can be accessed via this link: https://docebo.zendesk.com/hc/en- us/requests/new) and confirmed as Urgent by Docebo; which confirmation will be presumed, provided that the conditions of the definition of any Urgent Incident are met or as otherwise directed by Docebo.
- This table applies only to Production Instances and only to tickets submitted from the “Docebo Communication Center” (in platform), or the “Support Web Form” (which can be accessed via this link: https://docebo.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new).

(c) The error message provided, and the exact steps necessary, if known, to reproduce the error.
(d) The user(s) that are affected by the issue.

Support Requests lacking this information will not be considered as part of any service level measuring report, except to the extent that such information is not available or known to the Customer.
(2) Customer’s General Responsibilities
With respect to Helpdesk Services, the Customer agrees that it will reasonably cooperate with Docebo and will, be responsible for: (i) documenting and reporting errors promptly; (ii) providing sufficient information for Docebo to duplicate the error, assess the situation, and/or undertake any needed or appropriate corrective action; (iii) following instructions or suggestions from Docebo regarding use, maintenance, upgrades, repairs, workarounds, or other related matters; (iv) having adequate technical expertise and knowledge of their configuration of the Production Instance and familiarity with the Services, (v) designating two (2) members (or more as agreed to by the Parties) of its staff to serve as the Customer’s system administrators to contact Docebo with support issues; (vi) providing Docebo with reasonable access to Customer’s personnel during Business Hours; and (vii) carrying out procedures necessary to test the rectification of the reported errors or malfunctions within a reasonable time after such procedures have been received from Docebo.
(3) Reproducing Errors
To the extent applicable, Customer understands and acknowledges that Docebo, in certain circumstances, must be able to reproduce errors in order to resolve them. Therefore, the Customer agrees to cooperate and work closely with Docebo to reproduce errors, including conducting diagnostic or troubleshooting activities, as the same may be reasonably requested and appropriate and subject to the Customer’s approval, on a case-by-case basis, End Users may be asked to provide remote access to their Docebo account and/or desktop for such troubleshooting purposes.

(5) Additional Charges for Exclusions
If a reported problem (or if the Customer otherwise requests assistance) is an exclusion as set out in Section 4.(4) above, Docebo will notify the Customer in advance and, as promptly as possible, may, with Customer’s prior written approval, move forward with attempted resolution of such problem, and charge the Customer at Docebo’s then-current standard hourly rates for all associated work. Customer agrees to pay Docebo in accordance with Section 5 of the Agreement upon receiving an invoice for said work.
5. Service Availability. For the purpose of this Section 5, the following definitions shall apply:
(1) “Excused Outage” means, any Unavailability that is due to:
a) Planned downtime. Planned downtimes are downtimes that are scheduled during “Maintenance Windows”.
b) Emergency downtime. With respect to emergency downtime, Docebo shall provide the Customer with as much notice as practical under the circumstances and strives to provide a minimum of twenty-four (24) hours’ advanced notice of emergency downtime that will impact Customer’s access to the Services. Docebo shall make commercially reasonable efforts to schedule emergency downtime in off peak hours (based on the Customer’s business hours).
c) Force Majeure. Any Unavailability caused by a Force Majeure Event.
(2) “Non Excused Outage” means anything other than an Excused Outage.
(3) “Unavailable” or “Unavailability” means that all or the majority of the request for the Services are constantly timing out or failing with a server side error code; and (b) with respect to unavailability of the configuration portal, that the portal is not available for log on for all End Users. For greater certainty, there shall be no Unavailability as a result of (i) a failure of the Customer to correctly configure the Services in accordance with the Documentation and/or Docebo’s instructions; (ii) the unavailability of web pages due to Customer internet connectivity issues; or (iii) unavailability of one or more specific features while other key features remain available.
(a) Docebo has established the Services such that they will be available at least 99.9% of the time, as measured on a monthly calendar basis (“Availability Percentage”) as follows:
Availability Percentage = ((T – EO) – IEO / (T – EO)) x 100%
T = Total Monthly Time
EO = Total Monthly Excused Outages
IEO = Total Monthly Non-Excused Outages
(b) If Docebo fails to achieve the Availability Percentage for two (2) calendar months in any six (6) month period then the Customer shall be granted service credits in compensation for the same (“Service Credits”), as detailed below. The value of Service Credits is calculated as a percentage of the pro rata monthly charges paid by the Customer to Docebo for Services under the applicable Order Form or SOW, in accordance with the schedule below.
|Availability Percentage||Service Credit Percentage|
|Less than 99.9% but equal to or greater than 99.0%||10.0%|
|Less than 99.0%||30.0%|
(c) Docebo will apply Service Credits to the Customer’s account. In the event there are no further Fees owing under the Agreement, Docebo shall issue the Customer a refund within 60 days.
(d) Docebo’s failure to achieve the Availability Percentage for four (4) consecutive calendar months during the Term shall be a material breach of the Agreement.
