Frequently Asked Questions
To aid the service desk of our clients, we offer a FAQ about our eID services.
Service Level Agreement
Only registered clients can enforce certain SLA conditions.
Once you consume a certain volume, we ask you to become a registered client.
Clients requiring a custom SLA and/or consuming a very high volume are assigned a dedicated environment.
In this setup, the e-contract.be system serves as fail-over in case the dedicated environment goes down.
