API2Cart provides a unified shopping cart data interface for easy Integration and data exchange between software and multiple stores.
Service Level Agreement (the “SLA”) is a policy governing the use of API between API2Cart Service providers and customers. This SLA applies separately to each account using a unified shopping cart interface. By setting down these policies we hope to provide high quality service, have an accurate profile of user needs and demonstrate the appropriate level of Support Service to satisfy customers’ requests. The aim of the SLA is to provide a basis for cooperation between software providers and API2Cart, ensuring timely and efficient support and technical assistance.
This SLA is an integral part of the Terms of Service of API2Cart. By using the API2Cart Service, you irrevocably agree to this SLA. If you do not agree to this SLA, you may not use the API2Cart Service, unless otherwise agreed between the Parties in the Agreement. In the event of a conflict between this SLA and the written API2Cart service Agreement signed between you and API2Cart (the “Agreement”), the Agreement shall prevail, but only to the extent of such conflict.
1.1 The following definitions shall apply to the API2Cart SLA:
"Availability" - our API is available for you as a registered API2Cart user in the way we intend upon your first request.
"Downtime" - Service downtime being the number of minutes in a month when our API is not available for any reason.
"Service" means the Unified API provided to you for shopping cart Integration and additional technical assistance provided on your request.
"Integration"- the process of linking together different software applications and eCommerce platforms via application programming interface for data exchange and coordinated functionality.
"Unified API" - application programming interface which can be applied equally effectively for Integration with multiple shopping platforms.
"Service Monitoring" - tracking various critical metrics to ensure high Availability and proper Service functionality.
