The Credits described in this SLA will be Customer’s exclusive remedy and Kakihosting’s entire liability for any breach of any warranty of performance or service contained in this SLA. In order to claim Credits, Customer must open a Kakihosting support ticket.
All downtimes will be measured from the time the ticket is received and validated by Kakihosting to the time Kakihosting , in its sole discretion is able to resolve the issue.

Credits will be applied against purchases or renewals for which payment is due after the date the credit is applied. Credits will not be applied against past due balances.
