D. SERVICE LEVEL DEFAULTS
In the event that the Availability Commitment is not achieved in any given calendar month, then Customer may request a “Service Credit” in the applicable amount as stated in the table below for each month during which such failures were measured. In order to receive any Service Credits, Customer must request such credit(s) in writing by contacting Jasper via email@example.com within 14 days of the end of the applicable month. If the % Availability of such request is confirmed by Jasper and is less than the Availability Commitment, then Jasper will issue the Service Credit to Customer within the annual billing cycle following the year in which such request is confirmed by Jasper.

If an annual fee for Software Services are charged under an Order Form, then Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the applicable Effective Monthly Fee. “Effective Monthly Fee” means the annual fee for Software Services divided by 12 for each elapsed month during the yearly period of an Order Form (e.g. if an Order Form has an initial 3-year term, then each yearly period shall be each 12 month period in the first 3-year term; i.e. months 1-12 are the first period, months 13-24 are the second period, and months 25-36 are the third period).
In no event shall the Service Credits due hereunder exceed a combined total of 50% of each Effective Monthly Fee.
