- Prices for Support are shown for monthly terms billed in advance, and payments are non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of use or months without use on an active subscription account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
- Support users may upgrade their plan at any time at a pro-rated cost.
- Support users may downgrade their plan at any time, to take effect at the beginning of the next billing cycle.
- Tickets submitted under the Emerald support plan are guaranteed a first-response by the end of the day 1 business day following a ticket's creation.
- Tickets submitted under the Sapphire support plan are guaranteed a first-response within 4 business hours following a ticket's creation.
- Tickets submitted under the Diamond support plan are guaranteed a first-response within 1 business hour following a ticket's creation.
- "Urgent tickets" submitted under the Emerald or Sapphire support plans are guaranteed a first-response within 2 business hours following a ticket's creation. An "Urgent ticket" is solely defined as a ticket marked with the urgent ticket option that is available when submitting a new ticket in the Support center at https://expressionengine.com/support. Since the guaranteed first-response time for all tickets under the Diamond support plan is already faster than that of an Urgent ticket, Urgent tickets are not included in the Platinum support plan.
- If support fails to respond by the guaranteed first-response time, a pro-rated amount for the time between the guaranteed first-response time and the actual response time will be refunded as a credit on the subscriber's account at the beginning of the next billing cycle.
- The guaranteed first-response time does not apply to weekend days and the following US holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and the following day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year's Eve.
