For each valid Claim, Supplier will apply the highest applicable Service Credit corresponding to the total combined availability during each Applicable Monthly Period, based on the table below. Supplier will not be liable for multiple Service Credits for the same Incident in the same Applicable Monthly Period.

Upon receiving your Claim, you will be notified within two weeks regarding the final decision on whether and how many Service Credits are awarded.

THE SERVICE CREDITS PROVIDED TO YOU IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS SLA ARE YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM.
