Amazon IoT Events Service Level Agreement for Amazon Web Services (Beijing Region)

Last Updated: June 21, 2021

This Amazon IoT Events Service Level Agreement for Amazon Web Services (Beijing Region) (“SLA”) is a policy governing the use of Amazon IoT Events under the terms of Sinnet Customer Agreement for Amazon Web Services (Beijing Region) (available at and as updated from time to time, collectively with other agreement with us governing your use of our Services, the “Agreement”) between Beijing Sinnet Technology Co., Ltd. ("Sinnet", "us" or "we") and you. This SLA applies separately to each account using Amazon IoT Events. In the event of a conflict between the terms of this SLA and the Agreement, the terms and conditions of this SLA apply, but only to the extent of such conflict. Capitalized terms used herein but not defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Agreement.

Service Commitment

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to make Amazon IoT Events available with the applicable Monthly Uptime Percentage during any monthly billing cycle (the “Service Commitment”). In the event Amazon IoT Events does not meet the Service Commitment, you will be eligible to receive a Service Credit as described below. The Service Commitment and Service Credits provided to you under this SLA will be provided to you only in connection with your use of Amazon IoT Events from Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) region. This SLA does not authorize you to receive any Service Commitment or Service Credits from any other Amazon Web Services regions.

Service Credits

Service Credits are calculated as a percentage of the total charges paid by you for Amazon IoT Events for the billing cycle in which the Monthly Uptime Percentage fell within the ranges set forth in the table below

Monthly Uptime Percentage

Service Credit Percentage

Less than 99.9% but greater than or equal to 99.0%


Less than 99.0%  but greater than or equal to 95.0%


Less than 95.0%


We will apply any Service Credits only against future Amazon IoT Events payments otherwise due from you. At our discretion, we may issue the Service Credit to the bank card you used to pay for the billing cycle in which the error occurred. Service Credits will not entitle you to any refund or other payment from us. A Service Credit will be applicable and issued only if the credit amount for the applicable monthly billing cycle is greater than one Renminbi (¥1 Renminbi). Service Credits may not be transferred or applied to any other account. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, your sole and exclusive remedy for any unavailability, non-performance, or other failure by us to provide Amazon IoT Events is the receipt of a Service Credit (if eligible) in accordance with the terms of this SLA.

Credit Request and Payment Procedures

To receive a Service Credit, you must submit a claim by opening a case in the Amazon Web Services Support Center. To be eligible, the credit request must be received by us by the end of the second billing cycle after which the incident occurred and must include:
1. the words “SLA credit request” in the subject line;
2. the dates and times of each incident of non-zero Error Rates that you are claiming; and
3. Your Request logs that document the errors and corroborate your claimed outage (any confidential or sensitive information in these logs should be removed or replaced with asterisks).

If the Monthly Uptime Percentage applicable to the month of such credit request is confirmed by us and is less than the applicable Service Commitment, then we will issue the Service Credit to you within one billing cycle following the month in which your credit request is confirmed by us. Your failure to provide the credit request and other information as required above will disqualify you from receiving a Service Credit.

Amazon IoT Events SLA Exclusions

The Service Commitment does not apply to any unavailability, suspension or termination of Amazon IoT Events, or any other Amazon IoT Events performance issues that: (i) are caused by factors outside of our reasonable control, including any force majeure event or Internet access or related problems beyond the demarcation point of Amazon IoT Events; (ii) result from any actions or inactions of you or any third party; (iii) result from your equipment, software or other technology and/or third party equipment, software or other technology (other than third party equipment within our direct control); (iv) that result from you not following the best practices or exceeding the published Amazon IoT Events service limits described in the Amazon IoT Events Developer Guide on the Amazon Web Services China Site; or (v) arise from our suspension or termination of your right to use Amazon IoT Events in accordance with the Agreement (collectively, the “Amazon IoT Events SLA Exclusions”). If availability is impacted by factors other than those used in our calculation of the Error Rate, then we may issue a Service Credit considering such factors at our discretion.


  • “Request” is an invocation of any of the IoT Events APIs from the Amazon Web Services CLI or SDK.
  • "Error Rate” means: (i) the total number of internal server errors returned by Amazon IoT Events as error status “InternalFailure” or “ServiceUnavailable” divided by (ii) the total number of Requests for the applicable Request type during that five minute interval. The calculation of the number of internal server errors will not include errors that arise directly or indirectly as a result of any of the Amazon IoT Events SLA Exclusions.
  • “Monthly Uptime Percentage” is calculated by subtracting from 100% the average of the Error Rates from each five minute interval in the monthly billing cycle. If you did not make any Requests in a given 5-minute interval, that interval is assumed to have a 0% Error Rate.
  • A “Service Credit” is a Renminbi credit, calculated as set forth above, that we may credit back to an eligible Amazon IoT Events account.
