“Downtime” or “Downtime Incident” means the time in which the Software is unavailable to the Customer as measured and determined solely by the Company. Downtime Incidents exclude: (a) planned downtimes announced at least 72 hours in-advance by Company, including without limitation, for periodic upgrade and maintenance; and/or (b) any time during which the Company is awaiting information from the Customer, or awaiting Customer's confirmation that the Software has been restored.
