You may place Error Queries over the phone or via email during Available hours (as Available is defined for Silver Support Service in the table above).

Following receipt of an Error Query and completed Fault Report Form by BioBrain, BioBrain, in its reasonable opinion, will assign the Error Query a priority level in accordance with the following criteria:
|Priority Level||Type of Error Query|
|Level 1||The Supported Software or a substantial part of the Supported Software (including by reference to function) is down or is severely affected or at substantial risk of being severely affected; or your business cannot be conducted normally directly as a result of error / defect in Supported Software|
|Level 2||Error or defect in Supported Software is impacting work production; or use of the Supported Software is interrupted perhaps with risk of recurrence; or error or defect in Supported Software results in some performance degradation of the Supported Software, transmission failures/interruptions or other failures of the Supported Software that are not Level 1 or 3|
|Level 3||Error or defect in Supported Software is an inconvenience or is an operational nuisance. Error Query relates to general questions on the use of the Supported Software.|
BioBrain shall use its reasonable endeavours to respond and remedy any defects or errors in Supported Software about which you have submitted an Error Query within the response and resolution times set out below:
|Priority Level||Response Time (time for response by BioBrain to your Error Query. Time starts from receipt by BioBrain of completed Fault Report Form relating to Error Query)||Resolution Time (time for resolution of error or defect in Supported Software, subject to exclusions listed below.

You shall provide BioBrain with all assistance reasonably requested by BioBrain in order to enable BioBrain to remedy any defects or errors in the Service. You agree that it is reasonable for BioBrain to request, amongst other things, access to your premises and/or server(s) (either remotely or physically) in order that it can update your dedicated installation with any corrected version of the Current Release (where relevant), and that the Resolution Time for Dedicated Installations may be greater than specified above for these reasons.
Exclusions from and limitations to Support Services and error correction services:
Maintenance, support or other services in respect of the following are not included in your support allowance and the Support Services and in the error correction services described above: integration with existing systems; beta functionality; solution or configuration consulting; custom report development and other customisation of the Service and/or BioBrain Technology; defects or errors which, in the reasonable opinion of BioBrain, result from any modifications to the Current Release made by any person other than BioBrain; use of any version of the Service other than the Current Release; incorrect use of the Current Release or database or operator error/lack of training; any fault in your equipment or in any programs used in conjunction with the Current Release; any defects or errors caused by use of the Current Release on or with equipment or programs not supplied by or approved in writing by BioBrain provided that for this purpose any programs designated for use with the Current Release shall be deemed to have the written approval of BioBrain; any modification of the Current Release not authorised in writing by BioBrain; operation of the Current Release outside BioBrain’s recommended applicable operating conditions and environmental specifications which may include running the Service on server infrastructure shared with other applications and databases; improper site preparation or maintenance (in the reasonable opinion of BioBrain); accident, neglect, hazard or misuse; natural calamity; failure or fluctuation of electrical power or environmental conditions; and/or any unauthorised maintenance of the Current Release or other failure by you or a User to comply with the terms of this Agreement.
BioBrain may, in its sole and absolute discretion, elect to provide maintenance services or other support services in circumstances covered by the exclusions listed above and/or where it determines that there is not a defect with the Current Release, in which case such services will be provided at BioBrain’s then current rates. You acknowledge and agree that the software contained in the BioBrain Technology used to provide the Service is complex, and that certain errors and defects are incapable of correction or may require an inordinate amount of time and money to correct. If BioBrain, in its reasonable opinion, concludes that a defect or error falls into either of these categories, then BioBrain shall have no obligation to correct such defect or error.
In providing support and error correction services under the terms of this Agreement, BioBrain may in its sole and absolute discretion: (i) provide a local fix or patch of any relevant software; (ii) provide a temporary by pass or work around solution; (iii) schedule the resolution of the defect or error for inclusion in a subsequent New Release; (iv) modify BioBrain documentation to reflect operating limitations and correct operating procedures; and (v) request you to provide such information as may be required to enable it to identify and correct any defect or error in question or to provide support (which information you shall provide within a reasonable time). Time will not be of the essence in undertaking support and error correction services.
Failure to comply with these support and error correction provisions shall not constitute a breach of this Agreement by BioBrain.
BioBrain may give notice by means of a general notice on the Service, electronic mail to your e-mail address on record in BioBrain’s account information, or by written communication sent by first class mail or pre-paid post to your address on record in BioBrain’s account information. Such notice shall be deemed to have been given upon the expiration of 48 hours after mailing or posting (if sent by first class mail or pre-paid post) or 12 hours after sending (if sent by email). You may give notice to BioBrain (such notice shall be deemed given when received by BioBrain) at any time to email@example.com
