In order to offer the best possible service quality to the Customer, the VisioMapCloud software suite and the map data are not installed in the Customer’s system or the users’ computers. They are hosted in the “Cloud” on VISIOGLOBE’s servers or in the servers of its subcontractors in Paris or in a capital close to the Customer. These servers are administered by VISIOGLOBE only, they are not shared with third parties. VISIOGLOBE reserves the right to migrate the Software and the map data to other servers at any time to continue guarantying the best possible service quality to the Customer.
The Customer shall appoint an administrator to whom an ID and a password shall be allocated. Said administrator shall be in a position to log on to VisioMapCloud in any place and at any time if he/she is in possession of his/her ID and password.
The use of VisioMapCloud requires access to a telecommunication network by the Customer. Said access shall be provided by a telecommunication operator selected by the Customer under its responsibility. The Customer shall be personally responsible for and bear all expenses for implementing, maintaining and connecting the various components of the configuration and of the telecommunication means necessary to access VisioMapCloud. An ASDL connection is required as a minimum baseline for a reactive use of VisioMapCloud.

VISIOGLOBE warrants the Customer an annual availability of VisioMapCloud of 95 % (hereinafter referred to as “Commitment of availability”). Said commitment includes maintenance and service improvement times.
Annual availability shall be calculated based on the following formula:
Availability rate = (TMA – TMI) x 100/TMA
TMY = Total number of minutes/year
TMU = Total, minutes of unavailability
VisioMapCloud shall be considered as unavailable when log on is denied by the VisioMapCloud hosting server, including during routine maintenance periods intended to improve performance, and the deployment of Updates or Upgrades. VISIOGLOBE shall inform the Customer within a reasonable period of notice and specify the type and duration of said work.
VisioMapCloud shall not be deemed unavailable when interruptions are due to:
- (i) events beyond the control of VISOGLOBE, particularly in case of force majeure or disruptions of the Internet;
- (ii) acts or omissions by the Customer or the Customer’s employees;
- (iii) failure of Customer’s equipment, software or technology;
- (iv) interruption of the service provided by VisioMapCloud ordered by a court or an administrative authority.

Should the Customer fail to fulfil its payment obligations, the Customer shall remain eligible for the credit notes. However, said credit notes may be issued only when the Customer complies with its payment obligations.
In order to benefit from a credit note, the Customer shall make a request thereof by e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days as from the end of the year during which VISIOGLOBE failed to meet its commitment of availability. Failing this, the Customer shall be deemed to have waived said credit note.

Each party agrees to have said commitment met by its employees and partners. The parties shall clearly inform their agents, advisors, affiliated companies and subcontractors that the information is confidential, and compel them to comply with said confidentiality. Each party shall remain liable vis-à-vis the other party for the consequences of any failure to comply with the non-disclosure obligation.
