If we validate the request, Sapling will issue the Service Credits within one billing cycle.


Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, no Unavailability will be deemed to have occurred if Unavailability: (i) is caused by factors outside of Sapling's reasonable control, including outages from Amazon Web Services and Force Majeure events such as natural catastrophes; (ii) results from any actions or inactions of Customer; (iii) occurs during Sapling’s scheduled maintenance hours where at least 48 hours of advance written notice was provided; (iv) occurs due to use of alpha/beta/experimental services not generally available to other customers.
