Support Violations

Definitions

Excessive Support Request Volume

Our guidance is that the Client submits 1 support request per day. This single request can contain multiple questions or comments.
By following this guidance, the Contractor (in the form of the Bluroot support team) can prioritize and resolve incoming requests the most efficiently.
If the Client is continually in violation of this guidance, the Contractor will issue a written warning (“Warning”) to the Client. If the Client continues to violate this guidance after the Warning has been received, then the Contractor will issue a citation (“Citation”) to the Client. The Contractor can issue multiple Citations under this violation code.

Overage of Go-Live Training Limit

A Go-Live Training (“Training”) is a 45-minute Zoom call between the Client and the Contractor. The Training is used to review the basic functionality of the Ongoing Services and ensure proper set-up of BluMortgage.
The number of Trainings that the Client is entitled to is equal to the number of users who are subscribed to the Ongoing Services.
If the Client books a Training that exceeds the Training limit, the Contractor will issue a written warning (“Warning”) to the Client and cancel the Training. If the Client continues to violate this guidance after the Warning has been received, then the Contractor will issue a citation (“Citation”) to the Client. The Contractor can issue multiple Citations under this violation code.

Support Meetings Protocol Violation

A support meeting (“Support Meeting”) is a Zoom call or phone call between the Client and the Contractor that is booked after the Training. Support Meetings are most commonly used to discuss questions or issues with the Ongoing Services.
Support Meetings made available by the Contractor when it is determined that the Client’s request would be more easily resolved over with a Support Meeting (the “Support Determination”). The Support Determination is at the sole discretion of the Contractor, at which time the Contractor will share a method to book a meeting with the Client.
Support Meetings are not available if the Client has not yet completed a payment for the Ongoing Services.
If the Client books a Support Meeting without the Support Determination, the Contractor will issue a written warning (“Warning”) to the Client and cancel the Support Meeting. If the Client continues to violate this guidance after the Warning has been received, then the Contractor will issue a citation (“Citation”) to the Client. The Contractor can issue multiple Citations under this violation code.

Abusive Language

Abusive language (“Abusive Language”) is defined as harsh, violent, profane, or derogatory language which would demean the dignity of an individual and which shall also include profanity and racial, ethnic, or sexist slurs. The use of Abusive Language is at the sole discretion of the Contractor.
If the Client uses Abusive Language, then the Contractor will issue a citation (“Citation”) to the Client. The Contractor can issue multiple Citations under this violation code, and multiple Citations for a single offense.

Actions

Warnings

There is no explicit consequence to the Client for receiving a Warning. A Warning acts as a pre-cursor to a Citation for specific violations (listed above).
