Hanzo Archives Limited & Hanzo Archives Inc. Service Level Agreement

Updated: March 2024


Hanzo has configured the service in fault-tolerant, high availability mode for all tiers, and commits to maintaining client system availability of no less than ninety-nine point five percent (99.5%) averaged over each successive three calendar month period. Exceptions to availability of service include planned downtime for maintenance (performed outside of normal business hours), major outages and degradation of ancillary services such as Google Cloud Platform failures; client application outages or degradations (including but not limited to Slack, Amazon Web Services); and client application connectivity issues (e.g., internet, IDP SSO).

Upon learning of any service interruption, Hanzo shall use its best efforts to bring the service back online as soon as possible. Hanzo will provide our clients with prompt notice of any service interruption or potential service interruption, as well as continual periodic updates regarding Hanzo’s progress in remedying that interruption and the estimated time of which the service will be restored.

Error Reporting and Resolution

Hanzo strives to promptly respond to all reported errors associated with our services and will use reasonable efforts to correct any Error reported by the client or otherwise known to Hanzo in accordance with the priority level assigned.

We commit to our clients to provide an initial response acknowledging the report and verifying the error within our “initial response time” objectives. We further commit to use best efforts to resolve the error within the “resolution objective” time frame as listed below. In all cases, Hanzo will provide our clients with periodic reports on the status of the Error and Error Correction.

Our clients can report Errors via email at and/or the web at  

Clients must specify the priority level to Hanzo (including evidence when it should not reasonably be regarded as priority level 3)  when the client reports the Error. Hanzo will assume any Error is priority level 3 unless advised otherwise by the Client when reporting the Error.

Upon acknowledgment of any open issues, Hanzo shall provide the client with (i) the priority level of the issue (including an explanation where Hanzo’s assessment of the priority level differs from that reported by the client); (ii) the intended resolution method; (iii) the estimated times within which work will commence seeking to resolve the issue; and (iv) the estimated time within which Hanzo will seek to resolve the issue. Hanzo shall use reasonable efforts to adhere to the estimated times as reported to the client and shall keep the client informed of its progress.
