Service Level Commitment
New Relic is committed to providing our customers with a great experience with our products. New Relic is provided using the software-as-a-service model. In this model, the software you use to manage your application is comprised of two components: The New Relic Agent, which is a small software module that is deployed inside your application; and the Service which is a set of software programs that collect, store, correlate and present the metric data sent from the Agent in your application to our service. The service level within New Relic's control is the Availability of the Service. The Service shall be considered Available so long as customers are able to log in to the New Relic user interface and see application performance data. We endeavor to make the Service Available at all times with the exception of very short maintenance windows that occur periodically throughout the month. New Relic will use commercially reasonable efforts to maintain Service Availability of at least 99.8% during any monthly billing cycle. Excluding planned maintenance periods, in the event the Service Availability drops below 99.8% for two consecutive monthly billing cycles or if the Service Availability drops below 99.0% in any single monthly billing cycle, you may terminate the Service with no penalty. Such termination will be effective as of the end of the then-current billing period and no additional fees shall be charged. Customers may request the service level attainment for the previous month by filing a support ticket on our Support Site.
- Your use of the Service is at your sole risk, and New Relic makes no representations that the Service will accurately diagnose or correct every performance problem in your application.
- Technical support is only provided to users that have paid for a Plan Level, and no technical support is available for any free Plan Levels. Technical Support shall be provided in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the New Relic Support FAQ, available at https://docs.newrelic.com/.
- You understand that New Relic uses third party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, and related technology required to run the Service. New Relic is not responsible for any failures attributable to third parties.
- You must not modify, adapt or hack the Service or modify another website so as to falsely imply that it is associated with the Service, New Relic, or any other New Relic service.
- You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any portion of the Service, use of the Service, or access to the Service without the express written permission by New Relic.
- You understand that the technical processing and transmission of the Service may be transferred unencrypted over a network, and assume all risks related thereto. New Relic shall not be liable to you for any liabilities arising from the operation of the Service over the Internet or other network.
- You must not transmit any worms or viruses or any code of a destructive nature.
- If the amount of data collected in providing your Service significantly exceeds the average amount of data collected (as determined solely by New Relic) of other New Relic customers at your subscription level, we reserve the right to immediately disable your account or throttle your Service until you can reduce your bandwidth consumption.
