This Privacy Policy describes how we treat personal and company information when you visit the First Mile Group Website www.alloy.co ("the Site") or use the Alloy Service.

Personal Data Collected via Technology

The Alloy Service (which may be hosted by a third-party service provider) may collect Personal Data from you, such as browser type, geographic location of your mobile device or computer, operating system and version, Internet Protocol (IP) address, domain name, information about your application, operating environment and hardware profiles and/or a date/time stamp for your visit. We may also use Identifiers (as defined below) and navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URL) to gather information regarding the date and time of your visit and/or access to the Alloy Service and your activity on the Alloy Service. Like most Internet services, we automatically gather this Personal Data and store it in log files each time you visit the Site, use the Application or access your account on our network.

When you interact with the Site or the Application, we try to make that experience simple and useful. We use industry standard identifiers, such as cookies and mobile device identifiers which perform a similar role. Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer or mobile device (as the case may be) when you visit a website or access or use a mobile application and which store and sometimes track information about your use of the Site or Application (as the case may be). A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web or Application session and expire when you close your browser or exit the Application. Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Site or Application and will last for longer. We refer to cookies and the mobile device equivalents as "Identifiers."

We use Identifiers to:

  • remember that you have visited us before; this means we can identify the number of unique visitors we receive;
  • customise elements of any promotional layout and/or content of the pages of the Site or Application;
  • collect anonymous statistical information about how you use the Alloy Service (including how long you spend on the Site or Application) and where you have come to the Site or Application from, so that we can improve the Site and learn which parts of the Site and which functions of the Application are most popular with users;
  • Our affiliates use Identifiers to monitor performance and usage on the Site and the Application for internal analytics. The use of Identifiers by our affiliates is covered by our privacy policy. We do have access or control over these cookies.

Some of the Identifiers used by the Site are set or accessed (as appropriate) by us, and some a by third parties who are delivering services on our behalf.

Most web and mobile device browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that or to notify you each time a cookie is set. You can also learn more about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org which includes additional useful information on cookies and how to block cookies using different types of browser or mobile device. Please note, however, that by blocking or deleting cookies used on the Site or Application, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Site or Application (as the case may be).

In addition to cookies, tracking Gifs may be set by us or third parties in respect of your use of the Site or Application. Tracking Gifs are small image files within the content of the Site or Application so we or third parties can understand parts of the Site are visited and which functions of the Application are used and whether particular content is of interest.

Do Not Track: Your browser setting may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” signal to websites and online service you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what “Do Not Track” means in this context. Like many websites and online services, First Mile Group does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms from a visitor’s browser. If, in the future, we create a program or protocol to respond to such web browser “Do Not Track” signals, we will inform you of the details of that protocol in this Privacy Policy. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.

API Service Level Agreement

Last Updated Date: March 10, 2016

This Alloy API Service Level Agreement (“SLA”) governs the use of the Alloy API under the terms of the First Mile Group Terms of Service (the “TOS”) between The First Mile Group, Inc. (“The First Mile Group”, “Alloy”, “us” or “we”) and users of the Alloy API (“you” or “Customer”). This SLA applies separately to each account using the Alloy API. Unless otherwise provided herein, this SLA is subject to the terms of the TOS and capitalized terms will have the meaning specified in the TOS. First Mile Group reserves the right to change the terms of this SLA in accordance with the TOS.

1. Service Commitment

First Mile Group will use commercially reasonable efforts to make the Alloy API available 99.95% of the time. In the event First Mile Group does not meet the goal of 99.95% API availability in a given calendar month (“Monthly Uptime Percentage”), you will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below.

2. Definitions

The following capitalized terms shall be given the meaning set forth below:

  1. “Unavailable Time” means the Alloy API is not available for use according to third party performance and monitoring services contracted by First Mile Group at its sole discretion (the “Monitoring Service”). The Monitoring Service reports of availability is currently available at status.alloy.co; provided that service issues or outages relating to any Exclusions (defined below) shall not be deemed as Unavailable Time.
  2. “Monthly Uptime Percentage" is calculated by subtracting from 100% the percentage of continuous 5 minute periods during the Service Month in which the Alloy API was in a state of “Unavailable Time” as identified by Monitoring Service.
  3. A “Service Credit” is a dollar credit, calculated as set forth below, that First Mile Group may credit back to an eligible Customer account:
    Monthly Uptime Percentage Service Credit
    <99.95% 10%
    • For a calendar month where the Uptime Monthly Percentage, as identified by Monitoring Service, Alloy, at its sole discretion after confirming the nature and accuracy of the Unavailable Time, will credit Customer’s account a percentage of that month’s billings, as defined by this table:
    • Service Credit shall be issued to Customer’s First Mile Group balance for future use only. No refunds or cash value will be provided. Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account.

3. Credit Request and Payment Procedures

To apply for a Service Credit, the customer must submit a ticket via the Account Portal within 30 days of the month in which the Unavailable Time occurred. The ticket must include (i) "SLA Claim" as the subject of the ticket; (ii) the dates and times of the Unavailable Time for which you are requesting credit; and (iii) any applicable information that documents the claimed outage.

4. Exclusions

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, no Unavailable Time shall be deemed to have occurred with respect to any unavailability, suspension or termination of the Alloy API, or any other Alloy API performance issues, that (i) are caused by factors outside of Alloy’s reasonable control, including, without limitation, any force majeure event, third-party service related problems or issues, or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of First Mile Group or its direct hosting subcontractors (i.e beyond the point in the network where First Mile Group maintains access and control over the Alloy Services); (ii) result from any actions or inactions of Customer or any third party (other than Alloy’s direct hosting subcontractor); (iii) result from Applications, equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within Alloy’s direct control); or (iv) arise from Alloy’s suspension and termination of Customer’s right to use the Alloy Services in accordance with the TOS, (v) scheduled maintenance; or (vi) problems or issues related to alpha, beta or not otherwise generally available First Mile Group features or products (collectively, the “Exclusions”).

5. Sole Remedy

Service Credits shall be your sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability or non-performance of the Alloy Services or other failure by us to provide the Alloy Services.
