Unity Integrated Success Services: Level II

Additional Terms

Last updated: October 4, 2019

These Additional Terms (“ISS-II Terms”) govern your subscription to access Unity’s Integrated Success Services: Level II (“ISS-II”), and constitute a binding legal agreement between you and Unity. These ISS-II Terms supplement and incorporate the Unity Terms of Service.

By subscribing to access ISS-II, you agree that you understand these ISS-II Terms and are legally bound to comply with these ISS-II Terms. For clarity, if you purchase ISS-II on behalf of a company, organization or other legal entity, you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind that legal entity to the ISS-II Terms and, in such event, “you” and “your” will refer and apply to that legal entity. If you do not or cannot accept these ISS-II Terms, you are not authorized to receive the benefits of ISS-II.

1.  Scope.

ISS-II is designated for a team of Unity Software users with valid Unity Software subscription seats either (a) working on one (1) Project, or (b) located in one (1) Geographic Region.  If you want to extend ISS-II to additional Projects or Geographic Regions, you may do so for an additional fee. 

2.  Services.

Subject to your compliance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and your payment of all applicable fees, Unity will provide your team with the Services listed in this Section 2.

Management Services.

Unity will assign your team a DRM who will:

  • Coordinate and facilitate Unity’s technical resources as needed to enable a holistic approach to solution deployment and management, effective and timely communication between your team and Unity, proactively identify and resolve emerging issues, and effectively prioritize efforts by considering business impact and ISS-1 priorities.
  • Maintain an understanding and awareness of your team’s technical use of, and engagement with, the Unity Software and act as a liaison between you and other Unity technical departments as required.
  • Manage escalation for Priority 1 (Emergency) Requests (see Section 3 below).
  • Proactively communicate information to you about Unity Software Updates.

Unity will conduct a quarterly review of your use of the Services.

Support Services.

Unity will respond to properly submitted Support Requests concerning installation, activation, seat migration, configuration, troubleshooting and/or any other issues that may arise in connection with eligible Unity Software or your Project(s) in accordance with the response times specified in Section 3.  Responses will be provided by Services Personnel.

Unity will undertake commercially reasonable efforts, at Unity's discretion, either to provide work-arounds or to correct faults in the Unity Software.

Unity will prioritize the backport of fixes to the current supported version(s) of the Unity Software for the Unity Supported Platforms that are applicable to your use of the Unity Software.

Unity will provide your team with two (2) Project Review during each year of a subscription period in accordance with Appendix 1 below. You may purchase additional Project Reviews for additional fees.

Unity will provide your team with two (2) standard, half-day On-Site Training Workshops during each year of a subscription period in accordance with Appendix 2 below.  You may purchase additional On-Site Training Workshops for additional fees.

3.  Response Time Objectives.

The priority given to a Support Request will determine the "Initial Response Time" specified below:

Priority 1 / "EMERGENCY" / 1 Business Hour

Priority 2 / "HIGH" / 2 Business Hours

Priority 3 / "NORMAL" / 4 Business Hours

Priority 4 / "LOW" / 8 Business Hours

  • EMERGENCY (“Priority 1”): The problem results in extremely serious interruptions to the development or deployment of your Projects. It is affecting your entire team or causes serious impairment of essential operations for deployed Projects. For instance, data integrity is compromised or the issue is at risk of causing missed critical project deadlines or deliverables. You agree to contact your DRM for all Priority 1 issues.
  • HIGH PRIORITY (“Priority 2”).  The problem results in serious interruptions to the development or deployment of your Projects. Portions of your team cannot perform important tasks, but the error does not impair essential operations. Major Project components cannot operate correctly due to issues with the Unity Software or APIs, or performance issues are apparent.
  • NORMAL PRIORITY (“Priority 3”).  The problem causes interruptions in the development or deployment of your Projects.  It does not prevent the operation of a Project.
  • LOW PRIORITY (“Priority 4”).  The problem results in minimal or no interruptions to the development or deployment of your Projects (no business impact). The issue consists of "how to" questions including issues related to APIs and integration, installation and configuration inquiries, enhancement requests, or documentation questions.

For Priority 1 (EMERGENCY) Support Requests, you will:

  • File a Support Request via the Support Portal, which Support Request must include an accurate and complete description of the issues.
  • Contact Unity via the emergency escalation method provided to you. For clarity, a Priority 1 Support Request will not be acknowledged by Unity as an emergency without this notification method.
  • Provide Unity with a designated contact during the remedy period, either onsite or by pager, to assist with data gathering, troubleshooting, testing and applying the proposed solution.

In response to a properly submitted Priority 1 Support Request, Unity will:

  • Contact the appropriate Senior-Level Contact via phone or other real-time means.
  • Assign Services Personnel to own the issue and manage communications between you and Untiy.
  • Engage in regular communication with Senior-Level Contacts for the duration of the engagement.

For all properly submitted Support Requests (Priorities 1-4), Unity will undertake reasonable efforts to: (a) acknowledge receipt of a Support Request from a technical Service contact within the Initial Response Time; (b) provide a short status report to you within a reasonable time; (c) address the Support Request by providing a remedy (e.g., eliminating the defect in order to bring the Unity Software into substantial conformity with its applicable documentation, providing updates, or demonstrating how to avoid the effects of the defect with reasonable commercial effort).  Each party acknowledges that despite a party's reasonable efforts, not all problems may be solvable.  Where on-going investigation is required, you will receive regular updates to your Support Request.  Additionally, such updates may increase or lower the severity of the issue, in which case the frequency of updates will change accordingly.

4.  Your Obligations.

In order to receive timely responses from and resolution on your Support Requests as contemplated in these Industry Starter Support Terms. You will undertake the following. In the event you do not fulfill the obligations set out below, Unity, in its sole discretion, may downgrade the priority level of the Support Request.

  • Use suitably qualified engineers and artists to develop your Projects with the Unity Software.
  • Provide accurate and complete descriptions of problems and issues by submitting a Support Request via the Support Portal.
  • Cooperate with Services Personnel where elaboration of an issue is required.
  • Provide self-contained reproductions of issues or steps to reproduce the issue when possible.
  • Provide script, artwork or project folders where needed by Services Personnel.
  • Provide development timetables including milestones and deliverables as necessary to enable Unity to provide timely and efficient services.
  • Recognize that Services are often a collaborative and iterative process.
  • Assign each problem a priority level as described above.
  • Close Support Requests when the issue or problem has been resolved.
  • Designate Senior-Level Contacts (ideally one (1), but no more than three (3) per Project) and provide contact details (e-mail address and telephone number), so that Services Personnel and your DRM may contact the Senior-Level Contacts at any time in response to Priority 1 (Emergency) or 2 (High) Support Requests.  Each Senior-Level Contact will be an authorized representative empowered to make necessary decisions for you or bring about such decisions without undue delay. Where necessary, Unity will rely on the single senior-most Senior-Level Contact to determine, among other things, the priority and alignment of any concurrent tickets and resolution paths.
  • Share Support Request responses provided by Services Personnel between members of your team.
  • Assess Support Request responses for suitability and respond in a timely way when the response is not suitable.

5.  Limitations.
