ixlayer support offerings

1. Standard Support

ixlayer provides support directly to our Customers to address technical issues with the platform, site availability, etc. Customers will designate one or more primary contacts (Liaison) to manage issues and tickets with the ixlayer support team.

ixlayer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to provide email and phone support to Customer’s Liaison during the hours as follows (“Coverage Window”) excluding observed holidays.

Problems may be reported at any time; however, ixlayer will not be obligated to assign work outside of the Coverage Window to issues that are not classified as Priority 1.

Priority 1 Issues:

Weekdays 8 AM – 8 PM US Eastern Time
Weekends 10 AM – 6 PM US Eastern Time

All Other Issues:

Weekdays 8 AM – 8 PM US Eastern Time

ixlayer’s support team works with the Customer’s Liaison to identify and work to resolution of technical problems with the ixlayer platform. The Liaison shall complete reasonable training with ixlayer in order to be able to train users and correct problems caused by user error, assist users with the resolution of known issues, and obtain sufficient information from users to report problems to ixlayer adequately. Customers may change the Liaison from time to time at reasonable intervals upon written notice to ixlayer and completion of applicable training by the successor Liaison. ixlayer will not be obligated to respond to or provide support to persons other than the designated Liaison.

2. Premium Support (for Patients)

ixlayer offers support to patients via either the ixlayer support portal (support.ixlayer.com) or through a customer-branded support portal.
The support portal provides 24x7x365 access to knowledge base, educational materials and self-help content as well as the ability to open a support ticket in our ticketing system.

Support for patient inquiries is limited to site functionality, how-to questions pertaining to the ixlayer software, status of products and test results, etc.

The ixlayer support team does not engage in clinical inquiries or questions about medical decisions or information related to the patient’s medical record or conditions. We may coordinate with our customers’ practitioners, one of our network partners or other clinical expertise to route such inquiries from our support team to the appropriate resources.

Any failure to notify Customer of Scheduled Maintenance or to conduct Scheduled Maintenance within the allowed times set forth herein, will result in the resulting downtime being considered “Downtime” for purposes of calculating the Monthly Uptime Percentage. Uptime shall not apply to, and ixlayer will not be responsible for, any downtime which: (1) lasts less than 15 minutes; (2) results from Scheduled Downtime; (3) results from the failure of communication or telephone access service or other outside service or equipment or software not the fault of ixlayer, including without limitation general network outages; (4) is caused by a third party, not under ixlayer’s control; or (5) is a result of causes beyond the reasonable control of ixlayer.
