Eligibility for Credit. Unused AWS Reserved Instance capacity or AWS Savings Plans not directly acquired from Glassity are ineligible and won’t be taken into account for credit allocation. To qualify, each AWS Reserved Instance and AWS Savings Plan must be: (i) not in use, procured from Glassity, and for AWS Reserved Instances, located outside the GovCloud region; (ii) have at least a one-month remaining duration; (iii) be operational for a minimum of thirty days; and (iv) be completely settled with no pending payments to Amazon.
Maximum Credits. Customers are entitled to receive credits only hundred percent (100%) of fees paid to Glassity under the current agreement for that month, known as the “Monthly Credit Cap.” It should be noted that any credits exceeding this monthly limit will not be transferred to subsequent months. These credits are calculated monthly and can be used for either monetary redemption, conversion, or as offsets against future invoices from Glassity. It is mutually understood and agreed that these credits are the exclusive remedy for the customer and the sole obligation of Glassity concerning any unused AWS Reserved Instances and AWS Savings Plans.
Cost Explorer. In calculating the customer’s savings, Glassity assumes an equal cost distribution across all qualifying AWS Reserved Instances when the coverage of AWS Reserved Instances surpasses the customer’s actual usage. If a precise savings calculation is requested by the customer, Glassity will utilize the AWS Cost Explorer API, costing $0.01 per usage, billed directly to the customer by AWS. Glassity will make up to fifteen attempts to gather the necessary usage and coverage data. However, if these attempts are unsuccessful, Glassity will resort to the AWS Cost Explorer API, charging $0.01 per call. In cases where the Cost Explorer API is also unsuccessful, Glassity will estimate the data based on available data points.
Disclaimer. The customer acknowledges their ongoing liability and responsibility for fulfilling any commitments or liabilities under the agreement with Amazon for the AWS Reserved Instance and/or AWS Savings Plan. Glassity explicitly disclaims any implied warranties, including but not limited to, warranties of non-infringement, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose in relation to the credits and their usage.
