Medium priority: 4 hours
Low priority: 24 hours
Priority of issues: the following definitions of priority will be used:
High Priority (Significant business impact)
Definition – the overall application has failed leading to it becoming unavailable or non-performant to all or most users.
Medium Priority (Moderate business impact)
Definition – the overall application is usable and performant, but the ability to use or operate one or more core components is compromised, and this is impacting on multiple users.
Low Priority (Limited business impact)
Definition – the problem or request does not significantly impact operations for most users. The application is usable, but some features (not critical to operations) are unavailable or not performant.
We will provide the relevant staff member to support your app. We also allow you to use your support time for standard development such as updates to your app application.
|Support available to third parties||No|
Onboarding and offboarding
|Getting started||We provide onsite training to use the content management system on any hybrid app that we build. We also provide a training manual at the request of the client.|
|End-of-contract data extraction||We at Pogo Studio store all data securely within a SQL Server database in Microsoft Azure. At the end of the contract, we delete any personal data and clients always have access to the data on their hybrid app and are free to remove the data from it when they wish.|
Our contracts are fixed-cost, which means both parties agree what will be developed before the project begins. Any changes will require an additional cost and require written confirmation. Hosting is a monthly charge on top of the project fee.
A support and maintenance contract is an optional addition to the project cost.
Using the service
|Web browser interface||Yes|
|Application to install||Yes|
|Compatible operating systems||
|Designed for use on mobile devices||Yes|
|Differences between the mobile and desktop service||Mobile apps are designed to be "mobile first" which ensures that the best user experience is on a mobile device. The app will work across all mobile devices and device sizes. The app will also function on desktop-sized screens, however, it will be optimised for mobile.|
|Description of customisation||
We define customisation to mean the customisation of the content of the website after it has been built. We offer content managed progressive web apps using Umbraco. Umbraco is a popular content management system that utilises Microsoft technologies to make it easy for users to update their applications and add additional content. Our hybrid apps can be configured to allow a large number of customisation tools that can include adding and editing page contents and layouts, themes and giving access to additional users.
This would all be achieved via a dedicated back office that is designed to be as intuitive as possible.
Users with administration rights are able to set up other users and set the level of control they have over content updates.
|Independence of resources||Our database and hosting platforms are designed to scale with demand. This ensures that they are not overloaded and the service will not be impacted.|
|Service usage metrics||Yes|
For hybrid apps we can provide website analytics data using two different services. Google Analytics which provides useful data around metrics such as the number of visitors in a period, where they originated from, operating system used, pages viewed etc.
We can also provide Hotjar analytics, which is more concerned with the journey visitors take when using your site. This service provides heatmaps, conversion funnels and videos of your user's actions as they use the application.

|Information security policies and processes||An Information Security Management Program has been established to enable Microsoft Azure to maintain and improve its management system for information security. Through establishment of the ISMS, Azure plans for and manages protection of its assets to acceptable security levels based on defined risk management processes. In addition, Azure monitors the ISMS and the effectiveness of controls in maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of assets to continuously improve information security. The ISMS framework encompasses industry best-practices for information security and privacy. The ISMS has been documented and communicated in a customer-facing Information Security Policy, which can be made available upon request (customers and prospective customers must have a signed NDA or equivalent in place to receive a copy). Microsoft Azure performs annual ISMS reviews, the results of which are reviewed by management. This involves monitoring ongoing effectiveness and improvement of the ISMS control environment by reviewing security issues, audit results, and monitoring status, and by planning and tracking necessary corrective actions. Also see https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/TrustCenter/Compliance/ISO-IEC-27001 and The Microsoft Cloud Security Policy is available via the Service Trust Platform aka.ms/stp|
|Configuration and change management standard||Supplier-defined controls|
|Configuration and change management approach||Details of project requirements are outlined in a Statement of Work prior to work commencing. Any change requests that deviate from the requirements in the Statement of Work require written confirmation that is signed between both parties. All requested changes must be vetted by the Technical Lead on the project before being approved.|
|Vulnerability management type||Undisclosed|
|Vulnerability management approach||Senior members of staff must be aware of any IT vulnerabilities in our projects. It is the job of the Technical Lead to assess what needs to be done if any vulnerabilities are discovered. We give all vulnerabilities the highest priority and aim to fix the issue as soon as possible.|
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||Microsoft Azure employs sophisticated software-defined service instrumentation and monitoring that integrates at the component or server level, the datacenter edge, our network backbone, Internet exchange sites, and at the real or simulated user level, providing visibility when a service disruption is occurring and pinpointing its cause. Proactive monitoring continuously measures the performance of key subsystems of the Microsoft Azure services platform against the established boundaries for acceptable service performance and availability. When a threshold is reached or an irregular event occurs, the monitoring system generates warnings so that operations staff can address the threshold or event.|
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||Users can report incidents to us via telephone, email, or using our support ticketing system. We evaluate each issue and assign it a level of priority. High impact issues are given the highest level of priority, an issue is considered high impact if it has a serious detrimental impact on the operation of the software.|
