We will abide by an SLA for all Advanced/Enterprise paid account users. This agreement states that we will aim to provide our customers with a 99.9 - 100% uptime API. If the uptime falls below the 99.9% threshold, the customer is entitled to a service credit based on the following scale:
|Monthly Uptime Percentage||Service Credit Percentage|
|100% - 99.9%||0%|
|99.89% - 99%||15%|
|Less than 99%||30%|
In order to receive the Service Level Credit. A Paid Advanced/Enterprise plan user must submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org the following:
If the Monthly Uptime Percentage of such request is confirmed by us and is less than the Service Commitment, then we will issue the Service Credit to you within one billing cycle following the month in which your request is confirmed by us. Your failure to provide the request and other information as required above will disqualify you from receiving a Service Credit.
Billing is handled on a Per Month, or per use basis. For both, a payment source is required, and stored by our 3rd party payment processor: Stripe.com. Payment is required before usage of any paid Weather API plan. Payment for non-monthly plans are done on a per-use basis, and can be due either upon issuance of service, or at the end of the billing month.
No refunds will be provided after service has been rendered. However, in special cases under our SLA (Advanced, or Enterprise plans), we may issue a Service Credit according to our SLA agreement.
No refunds or credits will be issued when a user decides to downgrade their API subscription from a higher cost plan, to a lower cost plan. If a user subscribes to a lower cost plan after enrolling in a higher cost plan, the new lower rate will be billed at the end of the billing cycle. The new lower rate will apply to future billing cycles. Any plan changes take affect upon downgrade, it is up to the user to make sure that they that they have used any remaining quotas before downgrade.
If a user decides to upgrade their plan, after having paid for a full month of the prior plan. Payment only for the difference in plan pricing for the current will be required. Any future months will be billed at the new rate.
All daily quotas are specified in terms of a rolling 24 hour period. The 24 hour period starts when the first API request is made, and resets 24 hours after first API request.
All hourly quotas are specified in terms of a rolling 1 hour period. The 1 hour period starts when the first API request is made, and resets 1 hours after first API request.
The Service Commitment does not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of Weatherbit Services, or any other Weatherbit or Weatherbit Services performance issues: (i) caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including, without limitation, any force majeure event or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of Weatherbit Services or its direct hosting subcontractors (i.e beyond the point in the network where Weatherbit maintains access and control over the Weatherbit Services); (ii) that result from any actions or inactions of you or any third party (other than Weatherbit’s direct hosting subcontractor); (iii) that result from your equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within our direct control); (iv) that result from any scheduled maintenance; or (vi) arising from our suspension and termination of your right to use Weatherbit Services in connection with any breach by you of the Terms of Service or otherwise in accordance with the Terms of Service (collectively, the “Weatherbit API SLA Exclusions”). If availability is impacted by factors other than those used in our Monthly Uptime Percentage calculation, then we may issue a Service Credit considering such factors at our discretion.
