In general, the Service Level Agreement covers the following services provided by Lieberman Technologies: web hosting services, hosted email and collaboration services, virtual private servers, hosted applications, and other similar services.
We know that the hosted services we provide to our customers are essential to their success and we do everything we can to ensure the continuous availability of these services.
