3. Support Process: To obtain Maintenance and Support Services during the Term, Licensee must complete the Maintenance and Support Services Request Form available at https://help.thorntech.com/contact-support.html and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to create a service ticket ("Ticket"). Tickets shall be triaged by Thorn's support team throughout each business day. Tickets will also be tagged to identify: (i) the product version of the Licensed Software; (ii) Licensee's applicable cloud environment (AWS, Azure or Google); (iii) Licensee's applicable support tier as listed above, with Tier 2 and Tier 3 support licensees receiving priority; and (iv) the severity level for the applicable issue. "Severity Levels" shall be categorized as follows:
|Severity Level||Description and Estimated Response Time|
|Level One||Relates to questions about known features or issues of the Licensed Software that are usually already included in the Support Documentation. For Level One issues, a Thorn support engineer will reply with a link to a KB article that addresses the question or will respond to Licensee with relevant information and it may also use such response to create a new KB article for future reference. Estimated (but not guaranteed) time to resolve a Level One issue is less than 1 Business Day.|
|Level Two||Relates to requests for more advanced troubleshooting or research by a senior member of Thorn's support staff. Thorn's support specialist will reply to the Licensee to acknowledge receipt of the Ticket and inform Licensee that it is being escalated to Level 2 Maintenance and Support Services. Thorn's senior support engineer will then address Level Two Tickets according to Licensee's priority level (Tier 2 or Tier 3 Licensees will be addressed first, then by date/time). Thorn's support personnel may schedule a phone call or a screen sharing session to collect more information or to troubleshoot the issue referenced on the Ticket. Screen shares are generally reserved for Tier 2 or 3 Licensees. Estimated (but not guaranteed) time to resolve a Level Two issue is 1-3 Business Days, depending on the issue and Licensee's cooperation.|
|Level Three||Relates to issues that could not be addressed by our Level 2 support. It may include a defect in the Licensed Software that requires research by Thorn's software engineering and development team. If a work around is possible, one will be provided. If a defect is found in the Licensed Software, it will be added to Thorn's product roadmap and development cycle depending on severity. A critical defect may result in a hotfix, which would be released ASAP. Otherwise, work to address the issue will get scheduled into Thorn's upcoming bi-weekly development cycle.|
