(1) Your account must be in good standing 
(2) You must submit a ticket through our helpdesk to the billing department 
(3) All requests must be submitted within 5 days of the reported downtime 
(4) All requests must contain a ticket # of the service interruption

SLA Credit will be generated as follows based on your monthly renewal price:
