5. UP-TIME GUARANTEE
No provider can guarantee 100% server uptime. Servers and systems must be brought down (offline) at times for routine maintenance and upgrades to ensure that client's website will run and perform optimally. However, Stealth Internet strives to keep such service interruptions to a minimum, and, if possible, to give client advance notice of scheduled maintenance routines. Stealth Internet aims for a 99.9% uptime, which can be tracked at http://status.stealth.net.au. In the event of uptime dropping below 98% in any given month, the client can make a claim for a refund of that month's ealtss fee (or pro-rata if paid yearly).
Stealth Internet uses only top quality servers and services provided by a number of service providers. Of course, there will be times that client will not be able to reach the server due to traffic conditions on the internet, problems occurring at Stealth Internet upstream providers facilities, or due to hardware or software component failure. Both of these conditions are entirely out of Stealth Internet's control however Stealth Internet will endeavor to rectify the issue as soon as possible to the best of our abilities.
