System Service Level
ETS online products are hosted securely with a licenced Moodle Partner. ETS has a service level agreement with the Moodle Partner that states that the hosting environment shall normally be available on a 24x7 basis with a 99.5% uptime guarantee. This excludes scheduled downtime that is occasionally required for upgrades and is agreed with ETS in advance. The system is very stable, and downtime is extremely rare however, should the Moodle service be lost for a period of time due to circumstances beyond the control of ETS, ETS take no responsibility whatsoever for any loss of business or earnings and will not under any circumstances be liable for any costs, losses or inconvenience incurred directly or indirectly from the downtime.
Some ETS products (e.g. Question Banks, Health & Safety Resource, Anatomy & Physiology Workout and the College Resource) are sold with a 12 month licence. This is stated at the point of sale. Online courses do not have this restriction and no extra charges are made on any online course should more than 12 months be required to complete the course. Once the course has been completed, a further 2 weeks is allowed before the successful student's access to the course is deleted. However, ETS reserves the right to give any student on any course 6 months notice to complete their course(s). Access can be denied to any student after this 6 months notice period has expired, even if the course(s) has not been completed.
