Basis of Understanding of the Support Service

The primary purpose of the Support Services is to use reasonable commercial efforts to provide assistance and advice to suitably trained people who experience a difficulty when using the Software and resolve any Operational Faults that arise in the Software.

Any Support Services Triaster provides are not intended to be a substitute for training, to equip novices with the skills or knowledge they need to use the Software, or to provide consultancy services as set out in the Additional Services section below. The Customer is solely responsible for ensuring that users using the Software have the appropriate skills and knowledge they need to do so.

Support Eligibility

Support Services are available to all customers, provided that they have a current Call-off Contract with Triaster for the supply of Support Services and have paid all relevant fees under that Call-off Contract.

The definitions set out in the Call-off Contract shall apply in this policy.

Support Hours

Triaster provides Support Services during Normal Business Hours – 9.00am – 5.00pm (GMT)
