During the Term of the agreement under which Google has agreed to provide the Covered Services to Customer (as applicable, the “Agreement”), the Covered Services will be Available to Customer as described below (the “Service Level Objective” or “SLO”). Capitalized terms used in this SLA, but not defined in this SLA, have the meanings given to them in the Agreement.

Looker Platform: Each Looker Platform will include a Service Level Objective as follows:

Looker Platform Monthly Uptime Percentage the Covered Service will be Available (SLO)
Standard >= 99.5%
Advanced or Elite >= 99.9%
  • SLO Exclusions. The SLO does not apply to any of the following: (a) Customer’s environment or use of the Covered Services not consistent with the Documentation or as described in the Agreement, (b) Maintenance performed, including update/upgrade releases for the Services, (c) any unavailability caused by circumstances or events outside Google’s reasonable control, including any force majeure event, internet access, Customer’s or any third party’s actions or inactions, equipment, software, or other technology, (d) Instances provisioned for development, staging or other non-production usage, or (e) a Suspension or remedial action described in the Agreement.

  • Availability. In the event the Covered Services do not meet the applicable SLO, and if Customer meets its obligations under this SLA, Customer will be eligible to receive a Service Credit. This SLA states Customer's sole and exclusive remedy for any failure by Google to meet the applicable SLO.

  • Service Credit Calculation. The Service Credit is calculated as a percentage of Customer’s Monthly Fee. Service Credits will apply only against future payments due from Customer. A Service Credit awarded in any calendar month shall not, under any circumstances, exceed the Monthly Fee paid by Customer.

  • Service Credit Request Requirement. Customer must provide all reasonable details regarding the claim, including but not limited to, a detailed description of the incident, the duration of the incident, the number of affected End Users, and any attempts made by Customer to resolve the incident. Customer must submit a request by emailing looker-service-report@google.com by the end of the month following the month in which the incident occurred. If Customer is past due with respect to any payment or in default with respect to any material contractual obligations to Google, then Customer is not eligible for any Service Credit under this SLA. Google shall review and grant requests for Services Credits by using Google’s system logs and other records, which shall be considered definitive.
