  • Service is down or unavailable.

  • A critical documented feature / function is not available.

Severity 1 issues require the customer to have dedicated resources available to work on the issue on an ongoing basis with My Passion Media.

  • Service is operational but highly degraded performance to the point of major impact on usage.
  • Important features of the offering are unavailable with no acceptable workaround; however, operations can continue in a restricted fashion.

Minor (Severity 3)
