  1. Equitable Relief.

Exhibit B

Service Level Agreement (“SLA”)

  1. Performance SLA

Contacting Cobalt.

For Severity Level 1 support Events related to the Services, Client can call Cobalt’s emergency support line.  For Severity Level 2 and 3 support matters relating to the Services and for other non-urgent Events, Client can call Cobalt during Cobalt business hours or submit an email request.  Each such support request received by Cobalt will be logged and used to create a service ticket (“Service Ticket”) and assigned a Severity Level.  Cobalt will use commercially reasonable efforts to investigate each problem reported on a Service Ticket in detail in a timely and diligent fashion.  Cobalt may offer support by means of an online customer support center, to which Client will route support requests via an automated ticketing system.  Cobalt “business hours” are Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm PT, exclusive of United States federal government holidays.  

Cobalt will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly correct the problem reported in the Support Ticket or provide a workaround to permit Client to resume use of the impacted Services.  If Cobalt is unable to quickly resolve a problem or if the problem requires further investigation, Cobalt will develop an action plan and communicate this plan to Client at the phone number or e-mail address associated with the request.  A problem will be considered closed/resolved upon the earlier of: (a) the resolution of such problem; (b) the delivery of a workaround (which may include replacement of an impacted Robot or its hardware); (c) in the case of Severity Level 3 Events, Cobalt’s commitment to continue to use commercially reasonable efforts to correct the problem, to consider adding the requested feature to a future release of the relevant Technology, or Cobalt’s commitment to provide information reasonably requested by Client.  For the avoidance of doubt, Cobalt shall have the sole discretion to determine the severity of Events and to upgrade or downgrade the Severity Level of any given problem, provided always that it does so reasonably.

Event Classification.

Severity 1 Events.  A Severity 1 Event is the complete inoperability of a Robot or material degradation of its capabilities, whether the root cause is due to hardware or software.  Cobalt will respond to Client within one (1) hour of being notified of a Severity 1 Event, and will provide Client with further updates twice per day until resolved.  

Response Time: Cobalt will send a qualified technician on-site at the Premises if the Severity 1 Event is not resolved within one (1) Business Day after Client’s report of such error or Cobalt’s detection of such error. Cobalt’s technician shall diagnose whether the problem is related to hardware or software; if the problem is determined to be caused by hardware alone which cannot be repaired onsite, a replacement Robot will be provided within twenty four (24) hours on a 24x7x365 basis.  

Severity 2 Events.  A Severity 2 Event is the inoperability or degradation of some aspect of a Robot’s performance, but which does not materially impact the Services.

Response Time: Client shall receive an initial response from Cobalt within two (2) Business Day hours with further updates from Cobalt to Client once per Business Day until resolved.  Cobalt will send a qualified technician on-site at the Premises if the Severity 2 Event is not resolved within three (3) Business Days after Client’s report of such error or Cobalt’s detection of such error.  Cobalt’s technician shall diagnose whether the problem is related to hardware or software; if the problem is determined to be caused by hardware alone which cannot be repaired onsite, a replacement Robot will be provided within two (2) Business Days.  

Severity 3 Events.  A Severity 3 Event is an Event that does not impact the essential operation of the Robots, such as a minor software bug, or cosmetic damage to a Robot, or Client has a request for information, feature suggestion, etc. Client shall receive an initial response from Cobalt within one (1) Business Day with further updates from Cobalt to Client as reasonably determined by Cobalt. 

Response time: Cobalt shall respond within five (5) Business Days after Client’s report of such error or Cobalt’s detection of such error and will use commercially reasonable efforts during Business Hours to fix Severity Level 3 problems.

Delay.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this SLA, the parties acknowledge and agree that on-site technician visits and Robot replacements are subject to delay due to travel, access to Client premises, regulatory requirements (e.g., export/import requirements), logistical issues, and staffing requirements.

Updates and Upgrades.  Cobalt will, from time to time, make corrections to the software used to deliver the Technology including without limitation, patches, bug fixes, or workarounds, and minor modifications to existing software features which Cobalt makes available to similarly situated Clients at no additional cost (“Updates”).  Cobalt may also make improvements that provide additional functionality which Cobalt makes available to similarly situated clients at no additional cost (“Upgrades”).    Such Updates and Upgrades will be delivered over the air to the Robots on or around that time they are made available to Cobalt’s other clients.  Nothing herein shall require Cobalt to develop or provide Upgrades or Updates except as necessary to comply with its Severity Level obligations described herein.

  1. Specialist SLA


Robot Encountered Events.  Events encountered by a Robot will be classified according to the internal logic of the Robot as set by Cobalt, which takes into account the need for a prompt Specialist investigation or response.  Level 1 Events are (a) Events involving an actual or potential security Event which is likely to require human intervention (e.g., an unauthorized user or broken window), (b) Call Requests for which a Specialist response is needed, (c) a complete loss of connectivity/communications with the Robot for a period of over six hundred (600) seconds, or (d) Severity 1 Events.  Level 2 Events are other Events reported by the Robot, but which do not require an immediate response (e.g., a report of a blocked pathway).  

Specialist Response Times. Specialists will use commercially reasonable efforts to respond to (a) Level 1 Events within thirty (30) seconds, and (b) Level 2 Events within thirty (30) minutes, in each case measured from the time the Event is reported by the Robot (or after ten minutes, in the cases of lost connectivity).  Specialists will respond according to Cobalt protocols and escalations, which will include further investigation of the situation around the Event and notification of appropriate parties.  For Events which a Specialist believes to require immediate Client notification, Cobalt will call a primary Client contact, then will call a secondary Client contact if the primary contact does not answer or promptly respond.  Client will provide contact information to Cobalt and will ensure that it remains current.

The Client contacts will be authorized to act on Client’s behalf, including the authority to decide not to contact emergency response organizations.  Cobalt is entitled to rely solely on the instructions of such person.  Client acknowledges and agrees that Cobalt may be subject to applicable laws and industry standards designed to reduce false alarms, and that these may result in practices and procedures that delay either the notification of emergency responders, or other verification procedures in response to Events. IF COBALT HAS REASON TO BELIEVE, IN ITS SOLE DISCRETION, THAT NO EMERGENCY CONDITION EXISTS, IT HAS THE RIGHT TO ELECT NOT TO FOLLOW THE NOTIFICATION OR OTHER VERIFICATION PROCEDURES UTILIZED FOR EMERGENCY CONDITIONS. Cobalt shall not be liable for its failure to contact Client or any person as contemplated in this paragraph. Clients understands that, upon receiving notification of an Event, the police, fire department or other responding authority may forcibly enter the Premises.


A “Service Level Breach” is an event where stated availability service level commitment is not met for a Robot.  Cobalt will provide one (1) day of credit for each failure to adhere to the Severity 1 response times set forth above. The actual credit amount will be the daily pro-rated portion of the invoiced amount for the Robot based on a 30-day billing period.  Client will not be eligible to receive multiple credits as a result of multiple service failures or outage events occurring during the same period of time.  The “Maximum Credit” means the total credits that the Client may receive in a single billing period for a Robot.  The Maximum Credit for any given month will not exceed a total of ten (10) days pro rata credit in a single billing period.  Credits will be applied to the next month’s invoice.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this SLA, it will not be a Service Level Breach and no remedy shall be available to Client hereunder as to a particular SOW if Client has not timely paid any undisputed amounts due under the SOW, or to the extent the Service Level Breach is caused by any of the following:  (i) a failure of Client equipment (e.g., wifi) or equipment of a Client’s vendor; (ii) a failure of Client-controlled actions and environment at the Client’s premises (e.g. power failure, wifi access disabled, firewall blocking, etc.); (iii) Force Majeure events as defined under the Agreement; (iv) Client’s negligence or willful misconduct, which may include Client’s failure to follow agreed-upon procedures or Client personnel interfering with the operation of the Robots (such as their ability to access the Charging Stations); (v) any scheduled maintenance periods when Client has been informed of such maintenance, or (vi) failure of Client to provide Cobalt with access to the Premises as reasonably needed to enable it to comply with its support obligations.

A claim by Client for credit due to a Service Level Breach must be submitted by Client to Cobalt in writing not later than thirty (30) calendar days after the last day of the calendar month in which the Service Level Breach occurred. Such writing must be sufficiently detailed to allow Cobalt to determine whether or not a credit is due.  Approved credits will be applied by Cobalt to Client’s invoice within sixty (60) days of the Client’s credit request submission.  Client will be notified by Cobalt of any denied credits within thirty (30) days of Client’s credit request submission.

The Service Level obligations set forth in this SLA shall apply only to the Services with an expressly defined service level metric and do not apply to any other Services, except as may be explicitly provided to the contrary in the applicable SOW.  This SLA states Client’s sole and exclusive remedy for any Service Level Breach.
