The descriptions that follow apply only to the maintenance and support offered directly from Imprivata, Inc. Imprivata’s resellers may offer different maintenance and support options and should be contacted for information specific to their policies.
Term and Pricing of Imprivata Maintenance and Support
The “Initial Support Period” shall be the period commencing on the date Imprivata ships the appliance to the customer through the period ending on the last day of the 12th month following the ship date (the “Initial Maintenance and Support Period”). Upon expiration of the Initial Maintenance and Support Period, maintenance and support shall automatically renew for successive twelve month periods (each an “Annual Maintenance and Support Period”) unless one party provides the other with written confirmation of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days prior to the expiration of the applicable Initial Maintenance and Support Period or Annual Maintenance and Support Period.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Imprivata shall not terminate Maintenance and Support without cause if Imprivata is then providing Maintenance and Support to other similarly-situated customers, providing that Imprivata may, upon sixty (60) days’ notice, change the Maintenance and Support descriptions or pricing effective at the start of the next term hereunder. Either party may terminate Maintenance and Support if the other party fails to cure a material breach of this Maintenance and Support policy within thirty (30) days after receipt of written notice of such breach from the party not in default.
In the event of a lapse in coverage in maintenance and support, any reinstatement of maintenance and support should be subject to payment by customer of all M&S fees that would be payable from the time the customer discontinued maintenance and support to the time of its reinstatement plus an additional 5% reinstatement fee on the total renewal amount.
Fees for Imprivata Maintenance & Support shall be based on the then current Imprivata price for Maintenance and Support.

Support Case Escalation Process
Imprivata Technical Support is structured into three tiers which together help to resolve product-related issues in a manner that is timely, effective, and to the customer’s satisfaction. Below is a description of each of the tiers within Imprivata Technical Support:
Tier 1 Support
The first responders - all support cases start here. Cases are worked by a Tier 1 Support Engineer until they are resolved within a reasonable timeframe or require senior-level (specialist) technical assistance in which case they are handed off to the Tier 2 team via our escalation process. The Tier 1 team may request detailed diagnostic information from the customer before escalating the case to the Tier 2 team. The customer is notified when their case has been escalated to Tier 2.
Tier 2 Support
The Tier 2 team will continue to work the case towards resolution and may engage engineering for assistance if necessary. The Tier 2 team will work on the case until it has been resolved, or it has been determined that a change to the software is required in order to resolve the issue. When a software change is required, the case will be escalated to the Tier 3 team for engineering work. The Tier 2 team may request detailed diagnostic information from the customer before escalating the case to the Tier 3 team. The customer is notified when their case has been escalated to Tier 3.
Tier 3 Support
The Imprivata executive team is made aware of all cases that have been escalated to Tier 3 for engineering work. Cases received by the Tier 3 team are categorized as follows:
Appliance/OneSign or OneSign Anywhere Service Issue: When a case is categorized as an Appliance/OneSign or OneSign Anywhere Service Issue the Tier 3 team will require a set of server logs to send to the engineering team. Once the engineering team has reviewed the logs, they may recommend configuration changes or request a remote session to connect in to the appliance to investigate the issue further.
Agent-related Issue: When a case is categorized as an agent-related issue it may, for example, involve an unexpected behavior that occurs only when the OneSign agent is running. Often, issues that involve the agent cannot be reproduced in our lab and as such require remote access to the site where the issue is occurring via one of the following methods:
VPN access to the customer environment and application installed on the VPN machine
Obtain a VM image of a machine with VPN setup that demonstrates the issue
A machine exhibiting the behavior is shipped to Imprivata for debugging
Unfortunately, remote access through Webex or other remote software is not sufficient for debugging purposes as it does not allow the engineering team to run through the issue in a debugging environment.
Issues may take longer to resolve if no remote access is permitted to the environment and we cannot reproduce the issue in our lab, especially where there is an issue with learning an application.
In both agent-related and appliance/OneSign or OneSign Anywhere Service-related issues, the engineering team will arrive at one of two possible conclusions after a thorough investigation:
Product Defect: If the case results in the discovery of a product defect, the timeframe for a fix will be determined by the priority of the issue and the risk-level of the fix relative to its effect on surrounding code.
The factors that determine the priority of the issue are:
- the support level of the customer, and
- the severity (impact) of the issue, and
- the potential for the issue having a widespread impact on Imprivata customers
In some cases, the issue may have been fixed in a release that is generally available and the customer would be asked to upgrade to the release containing the fix.
If the issue is to be fixed in a future release, we will notify the customer of an estimated timeline for the fix and once again, notify them when the fix has been released.
Customers are strongly encouraged to test all changes (such as defect fixes, new releases and new versions) to the enabled programs in a test environment before deploying them into a production environment.
Configuration change: In some cases, the issue is resolved by changing a configuration setting on the server or the agent. Configuration changes and any known risks associated with them are reviewed with the customer before the change is made to the production environment.
Field Escalation Support
Field escalation support is not available as a standard service offering through our Standard and Premium Maintenance and Support plans.
On rare occasions when a high-priority issue cannot be resolved in a timely fashion through normal process and escalation procedures, field escalation support may be made available. Customers will be charged the then current daily service rate plus travel and expenses for this service, provided that if engineering confirms that at the issue is due to a product defect, no charges will be incurred by the customer.
Customers can help to ensure that their Imprivata product issues are resolved as quickly and effectively as possible by:
Using only Imprivata-approved OneSign or OneSign Anywhere appliances and software.
Designating at least one Imprivata-trained contact per location.
Allowing Imprivata reasonable access to their computer system and necessary data for troubleshooting purposes.
Promptly testing and installing all changes and/or updates furnished by or on behalf of Imprivata.
Thoroughly testing all changes (such as bug fixes, new release, and new versions) to the enabled programs in a test environment before deploying them into a production environment.
Summary Usage Data
In order to assist Imprivata in providing proactive support to Customer, Imprivata collects summary data regarding Customer’s use of OneSign. Such data includes daily usage statistics, Software version information, user and computer statistics, number of deployed and enrolled users per application, and number of logins per application per day. Imprivata does not collect any personal information about Customer’s employees (including user names, passwords or demographic information) or protected health information about its patients, and the data collected is available to Customer upon request. If Customer wishes to opt-out of the delivery of this summary data to Imprivata, it can do so by contacting Imprivata Technical Support as set forth above.
Imprivata supports the then current and one prior version of the OneSign or OneSign Anywhere software, but in all events will support any shipping version of OneSign or OneSign Anywhere for a minimum of twelve (12) months. Maintenance & Support hereunder does not cover any damage or failure resulting from any cause beyond Imprivata’s reasonable control, including without limitation, unauthorized or third-party modifications or repairs, products not supplied by Imprivata, or any product failure that Imprivata determines is not a result of failure in the products or Maintenance & Support provided by Imprivata. In addition, Maintenance & Support does not include replacement or reconditioning of products which do not contain the current or immediately prior version of software; which have been subjected to excessive wear or deterioration; or which have not been used in accordance with applicable product specifications.
Imprivata may elect not to provide Maintenance & Support to any customer which is not current in all payments owed to Imprivata, including any applicable Maintenance & Support fees.
