Please carefully read this notice before you use this Website. This Website is provided by Spyder, Inc and any affiliates (collectively "Spyder") and may be used for informational purposes only. By using this Website, or downloading materials from it, you agree to abide by the following terms and conditions. If you do not agree with the following conditions of use, please exit this Website.

Website Content
Spyder created this Website to be used by the general public and our affiliated financial service providers. The Website does not, and it is not intended to, provide any financial, legal, accounting, or tax advice, and must not be relied upon by you in that regard. The Website should not be used, or relied upon by you, as a substitute for your independent research or consultation with your own financial, legal or tax advisors.

The information, text, graphics and links provided in this Website are provided by Spyder as a convenience to you. Spyder will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information. However, due to the nature of the Internet, Spyder does not warrant and cannot guarantee the accuracy, completeness or authenticity of the information contained in this Website, or the information, text, graphics, links, Website functionality, and other items contained on this server or its suitability for any purpose.

Spyder does not warrant that the functions contained in the materials will be uninterrupted or error-free, that defects will be corrected, or that this Website or the server that makes it available is free of viruses or other harmful components as such information is received by you because Spyder cannot control the transmission of information over this medium.

Our Privacy Promise April 2021

Spyder makes every reasonable effort to ensure the privacy of the data you entrust to us.

  • We do not sell information about you.

  • We do not share your information with anyone for their marketing purposes.

  • We use your personal information to help maintain and grow the relationship you have with us.

Privacy Notice to All

Whether you are a customer, prospective customer, business partner, job applicant, a visitor to a Spyder office, or an attendee at a Spyder hosted or sponsored event, you have entrusted us to safeguard the personal information that you have shared with us. We are providing this privacy notice to assist you in understanding the types of personal information we collect, where we receive it, how we use it, and how we protect the privacy of the personal information shared with us.

Where Do We Get Personal Information, Why Do We Collect It, and What Do We Collect?

Most of the personal information we collect is obtained with your consent from you, one of our customers, an organization with whom we do business that has authority to share such information, or through other authorized sources. We primarily collect personal information to confirm your identity, verify licensing information, and manage your relationship with us. The type of information that we collect depends on our relationship with you. This includes:

  • Information you or a person on your behalf provides on an application or other form (for example, name, address, social security number, government identification number, or license affiliations);
  • Information we get with your consent from other third party sources such as credit reporting agencies or license regulators;
  • Information about your relationship and history with us;
  • Information on your interactions with our websites.

As a courtesy, Spyder may provide registered users with an updated notice if the types of personal information we collect, or use, is materially different, unrelated, or incompatible with this notice or the notice requires a material change.

How Do We Use and Disclose Your Information?

We may provide information to individuals and entities with whom you authorize us to share such information. If necessary, we disclose information when it is required by law, for example, a filing to the Internal Revenue Service (such as Form 1099). We may also disclose certain information to other entities to help us report or prevent fraud, including reports to regulatory or law enforcement agencies.  We do not share medical or health information, if gathered, with any unrelated companies, except as needed to maintain and process your transactions.

Spyder may disclose your personal information to a third party for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose or as you authorize, we require the recipient to keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the service. Categories of third parties that may be given access to your personal information will depend upon your unique relationship with us. Examples of these categories include:

  • Consultants and contractors (e.g., external auditors)
  • Financial services professionals
  • Software service providers
  • Attorneys and other legal professionals
  • Cloud service providers
  • Regulatory agencies
  • Third party administrators
  • Event Facilitators & Coordinators

How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?

We have policies that maintain the physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the confidentiality of your personal information while at rest (stored in or system drives) and in-flight (while being used as part of a transaction or regular data retrieval). Access to your personal information is limited to those who need to know it to help service our relationship with you. Should your relationship with us end, we will continue to follow the privacy policies described in this notice to the extent that we retain information about you. If we no longer need to retain that information, we will dispose of it in a secure manner.

Do You Need to Do Anything?

It is not necessary for you to take any action as part of our privacy policies. This is because we do not share your information except to service and grow the business relationship you have with us. You do not need to "opt-out" or "opt-in" as you may have done with other companies because we do not sell your information.

You May Request Your Information

You may request what information Spyder has collected about you and its purpose. We will provide a response once we receive and confirm your request.

All requests must provide sufficient information to allow us to reasonably verify your identity. We require a signed authorization form providing specific personal information that we should have on file for you. To verify your identity, we will compare the information provided to the information we have on file. Your name, address, and relationship with Spyder are mandatory data elements and will be used in combination with other information such as your licensing information, date of birth, social security number, or other identifying information. You do not need to create an account to request your information. Please contact us via Contact Us to begin your request.

Confidentiality Practices for Victims of Domestic Violence or Abuse

Spyder understands that certain personal information may require special handling. This may be especially true in instances where an individual is, or has been, a victim of domestic violence or abuse. This information may include the individual's address, telephone number, name and place of employment, and other contact or location information.

If you are a Spyder customer who is a victim of domestic violence or other abuse, and would like Spyder to take steps to further safeguard your information from others or need to remove a previously submitted request, please contact us for assistance. We will make every effort to further restrict use or access to your sensitive personal information without requiring you to disclose your personal situation details.

Online Privacy Policy April 2021


The privacy of your information is important to us at Spyder. We are committed to maintaining the highest level of confidentiality with all of the information we receive through our website. Spyder, Inc. has established the following Online Privacy Policy that describes how we use the information we collect from our website visitors. To learn more about how we protect information that is collected from you when you register to use our site or request a product or service from us, please refer to Our Privacy Promise.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Visitors are not required to provide personal information to browse the information found on our websites. Personal information is only collected when you voluntarily provide it to us, for example when you register to use the site or services. Personal information may include first and last name, address, email address, telephone number, and Social Security number. In order to provide some services to you, we may also collect regulatory license and affiliation data, and payment information required to use our services. Information provided by you through our websites is used only to help maintain the business relationship you have with us, or encourage such a relationship. We do not sell information about you. We do not share your information with anyone else for their marketing purposes.

Tracking Website Visitors

Spyder gathers aggregate tracking information from our website visitors. This aggregate tracking information is:

  1. Collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with this data.
  2. Gathered through the use of Web server logs and cookies. A Web server log is a file where website activity is stored. A cookie is a small piece of information that a website sends to a visitor's computer, which is stored on his or her hard drive. Spyder uses cookies to track repeat visits to its website. Although Spyder assigns a cookie to a visitor's computer, the company does not know who that visitor is unless that person specifically tells us by logging in to our site.
  3. Used for purposes of direct marketing to visitors to our website through social platforms.

To enable us to continually improve the content we offer our website visitors, as well as for systems administration purposes, we collect aggregate information site-wide. This gives us an idea of which parts of our website you are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a visitor's session will be tracked, but the user will remain anonymous.

In order to provide services in our website, if Spyder receives 'do not track' signals, we do not take any action to comply with such requests.

Website Security

Spyder is committed to protecting the personal information that you entrust to us. That is why we use the most current encryption technology available to ensure secure transmission of your information provided through our secure log in screens and online forms. Please understand that some channels in the Internet are not a completely secure medium of communication. For example, any email messages that you send to us may traverse several third-party communication backbones and some or all of these may be unencrypted. Therefore, messages sent to or from this website may be accessed by unauthorized users. To protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information that you want kept confidential. Spyder will not send unencrypted confidential data via email to any party. If you are concerned about the security of the Internet for the communication of personal information, you may consider using alternative forms of communication such as telephone, fax, or regular mail. We do not guarantee or warrant that any part of this Website, including files available for download, are free of viruses or other harmful code. It is your responsibility to take appropriate precautions, such as the use of anti-virus software, to protect your computer hardware and software while using the Internet.

Please review this Online Privacy Policy frequently as it may change at any time at Spyder's sole discretion. As a courtesy, Spyder may notify registered users of a material change to this policy.

Help Us Protect Your Privacy April 2021

Spyder will never ask you for any type of personal information by email.

Spyder values your privacy and takes every reasonable step to protect the information that you have entrusted in us. That is why we will never request your personal information via email.

If you receive an email that appears to be from Spyder, and the message asks you for personal information such as your social security number, birth date, government identification number or any other sensitive information, DO NOT RESPOND or click any links in the email. The message is not from Spyder and is a type of crime known as a "phishing" attempt.

Phishing is a cybercrime in which a target or targets are contacted by email, telephone or text message by someone posing as a legitimate institution to lure individuals into providing sensitive data such as personally identifiable information, banking and credit card details, and passwords. The information is then used to access important accounts and can result in identity theft and financial loss.

As part of the phishing attempt, the email from the fraudsters may look legitimate and it may contain links to sites like Spyder, that look real on the surface but are just imitations.

Privacy Safety Tips:

  • Keep your software (operating system and internet browser) up-to-date.
  • Make sure you have anti-virus software and a personal firewall enabled and current on your computer.
  • Be suspicious of any email that asks for personal information, requests your authentication, or indicates a problem with your Spyder account.
  • Be aware that legitimate companies generally do not ask customers to verify personal information by sending email.
  • Never respond to an email asking for your credit card or other payment information.
  • Avoid sending personal and financial information by email.
  • Never click on a link in an email if you are unsure of its origins, especially if the email asks for personal financial or account credential information.
  • If you receive a questionable email that contains Spyder's name or logo, do not reply by email and do not click on any links. If you have any concerns about an email that you have received, contact us by telephone or by using the Contact Us link on our Website.
Service Level Agreement - Online Products August 2021

This Service Level Agreement (SLA) is part of your purchased Terms and Conditions for a Spyder online product. Overall, Spyder guarantees that at least 99.95% of the time during the support window we will successfully process requests for your purchased services with a quick and reasonable response time as defined in this SLA.

As with any online Product, certain maintenance activities are required to service the Product to provide security, performance, and feature updates for your continued benefit. To maximize availability of your product, Spyder agrees to perform these planned maintenance activities outside of the Critical Online Window as defined in this SLA except when immediate action is required for emerging threats and other urgent activities.


The following definitions are used in this SLA document and may appear in the body as capitalized words:

  • Company – Spyder, LLC, the provider of the online products covered by this agreement.
  • Product – A covered online product. Any affinity products purchased through Spyder but serviced by other online providers are excluded from this SLA but may be covered by another agreement with similar terms.
  • Service Level – Means performance metrics set forth in this SLA that Spyder agrees to meet in the delivery of Product services. Service Level is measured on a month-to-month basis.
  • Downtime – Defined as an impairment or total outage of Product as defined in this SLA.
  • Response Time – A measurement from request to delivery of the requested user action.
  • Incident – Means any single event or set of events resulting in Downtime. Incidents are classified as Major ("Severity 1" or "SEV1"), Moderate ("Severity 2" or "SEV2"), or Minor ("Severity 3" or "SEV3").
  • Root Cause Analysis – Refers to a response provided by Spyder detailing the cause of an incident and steps taken to prevent a recurrence.
  • Critical Online Window – The period of time covered by this SLA where users are expected to be performing key activities in an online system. Planned maintenance is not performed during this window.
  • Support Window – The period of time covered by this SLA and equivalent to the Critical Online Window.

Critical Online Window & Maintenance Window

The Critical Online Window (COW) defines the period of time where users are expected to be performing key activities within the system. These time periods represent the "Support Window" covered by this SLA, although Company expects that their online systems will be available 24x7.

From time to time, Company may need to perform routine planned maintenance on the online product in order to add or modify user features, or to add non-visible improvements such as security and performance updates. In most cases, these updates will result in no outage or a minor outage that is outside of the COW. Planned maintenance activities will always be performed outside of the COW in order to provide maximum Product availability to customers.

For planned maintenance activities that may result in an outage, reasonable notice will be given to customers via online messaging banners, direct email, or other communication methods.

Measured Incidents & Response Time:

This SLA covers incidents classified by severity by Company according to the following guidelines:

  • Severity 1 / SEV1 - Major impact: The site is "hard down" and unavailable to users; OR critical features are unavailable or responding significantly outside of acceptable ranges of response, or with a high number of failure responses. No reasonable workarounds exist.
  • Severity 2 / SEV2 - Moderate impact: The site is not "hard down" but is significantly impacted due to response times outside of acceptable ranges for critical features or a high number or failure responses are being observed.
  • Severity 3 / SEV3 - Minor impact: The site is not "hard down" but is experiencing slow response times or failures for some non-critical features and no reasonable workarounds exist. For critical features, a reasonable workaround exists to minimize impact.
  • Non-Prod : Events that occur in non-production or testing system are specifically excluded from this SLA.

For purposes of this SLA, a "critical feature" is a core feature that is used consistently in day-to-day activities. For example, in an online document storage product, critical features would be access, display, and upload of documents; non-critical features would be renaming or deleting an existing document. Although critical features vary for each product and are not explicitly named in this SLA, Spyder considers most online features that are regularly accessed by users on a frequent or daily basis to be "critical".

Acceptable response ranges vary by activity:

  • Spyder site pages not directly related to a product feature: 10 seconds from request to response of partial page as measured on an average through the monthly measurement period of requests. Failures of these non-product pages are not entitled to claims for remedy under this SLA.
  • Login: 30 seconds from submission of valid credentials to display of home landing page.
  • Upload: 15 seconds from submission of uploaded document to completion of upload. Since upload speed can vary due to internet provider operations and size of upload file, the data transmission of the file data is not included in this measurement.
  • Download: 15 seconds from request of the file to start of transmission.
  • Other Product features and navigation: 10 seconds from feature request. Note that some process-intensive features may take longer than the page response time to complete, such as requests to reindex or clear a large work queue. Product will indicate the expected response time for these activities which are not measured as part of this SLA response time.

Return to Service (Incident Closure):

Company is committed to closing all incidents and returning to full operation as soon as reasonably practical after being notified of an incident or outage. Notification to Company may be via automated monitoring tools or via support contact from a customer via email, telephone, or online contact, whichever occurs first.

  • Severity 1: Return to normal operations within 6 hours from notification.
  • Severity 2: Return to normal operations within 12 hours from notification.
  • Severity 3: Return to normal operations within 96 hours from notification.

Root Cause Analysis (RCA):

Company performs a root cause analysis (RCA) on every recorded incident that results in an outage or impairment of the system or Product. The goals of the RCA are to:

  • Determine the cause of the incident
  • Determine the best path to permanent recovery from the incident
  • Plan activities to avoid recurrence of a similar incident

Upon request, Company will provide customers with a written RCA covering a SEV1 incident within three (3) days of the closure of the event. RCA is not provided to customers for non-SEV1 incidents. Due to the sensitive nature of security and infrastructure topics, some internal information may be omitted from the RCA as published.

Claim for Remedies under SLA:

When Company fails to perform under this SLA, a claim for remedies may be available. In order for the Company to consider the claim, you must submit your claim to Company in writing via US Mail by the end of the month following the incident start. For example, if Company receives notification of an outage on March 10th, any claims for that incident must be received by April 30th to be considered.

Include the following information in your claim for remedies:

  • Product and account identification, such as license number or account email
  • Start and end date for outage or impairment
  • Detailed description of impairment or impact to your organization
  • Approximate number of users impacted
  • Descriptions of your attempts to resolve the incident via workarounds or contacts with Company
  • Amount of remedy credit you reasonably believe is owed

Company will review your claim for remedies and make a good faith determination of the amount of remedies owed, if any, and will issue a prorated credit for remedies owed against your account at renewal. Remedies provided under this SLA are not issued as refunds.

The amount of potential remedy is calculated as the annual fee paid / 12 * the outage premium shown below:

  • If the monthly availability is at least 99% the outage premium is 5%.
  • If the monthly availability >=95% and less than 99% the outage premium is 10%.
  • If the monthly availability is less than 95% the outage premium is 20%.
  • If the monthly availability is less than 80% the outage premium is 50%.

For example, if the annual fee paid for a product is $500, there are 386 support hours in a given month, and the system is out of SLA compliance due to an unexpected outage that lasts 12 hours, the resulting calculation would be:

  • Out of compliance for 96.9% of the support window
  • $500 / 12 * 10% = $4.17

Please note that we use "support hours" in this calculation as it directly relates to the critical time frame where we expect business operations to be performed. You can approximate the same calculation using calendar hours (24 * number of days in the month) which may sometimes produce a higher availability percentage and a lower remedy calculation.

Availability and outage remedies are calculated on a cumulative monthly basis. For example, if there are three one-hour incidents in a single month, that is measured the same as one three-hour incident. For incidents that span across a month end, the incident may be counted in either month that results in a higher remedy for the customer, but one incident cannot be counted in both months.

Attention: SLA Claims

This SLA does not apply to any performance or availability issues that:
