2.1.1 “Downtime” The period of downtime within the Agreed Hours of Service that Availability has not been met with a deduction for the time of Permitted Downtime. Downtime is calculated from the moment in time the failure in Availability is reported in accordance with section 6 until the Service becomes available. When determining Availability in accordance with the formula in section 2.1.5, Availability below, Downtime will not include downtime that is not the responsibility of the Supplier in accordance with section 5.
2.1.2 “Agreed Hours of Service” The Service is available 24/7, however, the agreed hours, for which Availability is calculated, of Service are Monday to Friday (except for public holidays) between 9.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. CET (Central European Time).
