Availability of and Access to Services
Scrum Mate will attempt to provide continuous availability and access to Services. In the event that we are unable to provide access for reasons beyond our control, we will communicate the reasons for the outage and expected duration of the outage clearly and explicitly to the Customer. These outages could be due to third parties that the Service depends on, such as, but not limited to Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS or other third party service providers. Also while we will make commercially reasonable attempts to backup all Customer data, in the event of recovery from disaster, the Customer may have to reconfigure the Service to get it back to the state it was in before the outage. Scrum Mate is hosted by a third party hosting service provider.
Scrum Mate and its third party service providers have implemented and maintain commercially reasonable technical and organizational security measures designed to meet the reliability and confidentiality of data.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you have a VIP Services account, such account can only be terminated by Scrum Mate if you materially breach this Agreement and fail to cure such breach within thirty (30) days from Scrum Mate’s notice to you thereof; provided that, Scrum Mate can terminate the Website immediately as part of a general shut down of our service.
