5.2 MMW ensures maximum availability of its Internet platform with great effort:

  • The Internet servers are operated in a dedicated data center that is responsible for monitoring and maintaining the servers.
  • All critical components in the area of the server hardware are designed redundantly.

Despite these measures, system failures cannot be completely ruled out. Interferences in the area of the internet and in the local access technology of the user are not in our area of responsibility.

From the point of view of the business processes supported by the online platform, those functions that are used at the point of sale are particularly important. A distinction is therefore made between the following classes of system failures:

  • Reduced system availability: failure of non-POS functions System availability is reduced when functions that are not used at the point of sale are no longer available; these include the functions for maintaining master data, managing users and importing interfaces. If the system availability is reduced, the POS functions, in particular the registration of goods and the reporting of sales services, are still available.
  • Unavailability of the system: failure of all system functions The system is then unavailable if all system functions have failed or the Internet address www.markenmehrwert.com cannot be reached. MMW assists through all state-of-the-art measures and by concluding service agreements ensures its suppliers the following system availability and maximum downtime:
  • Reduced system availability: Maximum 3% of the planned operating time, maximum downtime 18 hours
  • System unavailability: Maximum 1% of the planned operating time, maximum downtime 6 hours

In the event that the system is unavailable, an offline process is provided for registering goods and reporting sales services. Any associated expenses in the back office area are provided by MMW without incurring additional costs for the user.
