Severity Definitions

Support issues are categorized and prioritized according to the severity levels below. Technical support requests within a severity level are generally processed based on the support level (Standard or Premier) and then on a first-come, firstserved basis. OwnBackup may recategorize a support incident categorized by Customer. Please keep in mind the descriptions below are guidelines and do not cover every possible condition or technical situation.

Severity Level Definition Examples
High Complete service failure, severe degradation in service, real data loss/ corruption in a Production environment with no workaround
  • Customer cannot access a critical business OwnBackup application
  • Jobs are not running (backup and/or restore)
  • The customer needs help in restoring data into the production environment due to real data loss/corruption incident
  • Data integrity issues
  • Security issues
Medium Minor service impacts or noncritical bug Difficulty integrating new non-production environment with OwnBackup
Low Minor service impact or feature enhancement request. Customer is able to access almost all business resources. How-to question or feature enhancement request


Reproducing Errors

OwnBackup must be able to reproduce errors in order to resolve them. Customer agrees to cooperate and work closely with OwnBackup to reproduce errors, including conducting diagnostic or troubleshooting activities as reasonably requested and appropriate. Reproducible errors that cannot promptly be resolved will be escalated to higher support tiers for further investigation and analysis.


Access to Customer Data

If required to address Customer’s issue, OwnBackup may access the data Customer stores in the OwnBackup Services, as follows. OwnBackup may ask Customer to send OwnBackup screenshots, or share screens with OwnBackup via videoconference/remote session, to help OwnBackup understand and diagnose the issue. If the issue requires further escalation within OwnBackup’s support or engineering teams, specifically authorized OwnBackup personnel may access Customer’s data through OwnBackup’s production system in accordance with OwnBackup's security, privacy and confidentiality policies and procedures for the exclusive purposes of handling Customer’s support case. For the avoidance of doubt, in all such cases, access to Customer’s data would be for the sole purpose of addressing Customer’s support issue and would be subject to OwnBackup’s security, privacy and confidentiality safeguards referenced in the Subscription Services Agreement between OwnBackup and Customer.


Excluded Items

Customer Support does not include any of the following:

  • Assistance with Salesforce issues and errors with Salesforce Platform;
  • Assistance in developing customizations;
  • Assistance with non-OwnBackup products, services or technologies;
  • Assistance with installation or configuration of hardware, including computers, hard drives, networks or printers;
