DRM DEVELOPMENT, INC. will use commercially reasonable efforts to meet or exceed service levels. If DRM DEVELOPMENT, INC. fails to meet the foregoing 99.9% service levels set out below in a rolling two month period, then CUSTOMER will be entitled to receive a credit for such outage in accordance with the schedule below.
