LEGAL AGREEMENT: (Customer agrees to the following)
Dear Valued Customer,
Our technicians fix computers, cellular phones, and tablets every day and as such, we are very aware of the realities of computer, cellular phone, and tablet repair. B.I.T.S. PC Repair, L.L.C. fixes computers, cellular phones, and tablets for both business users and home users and this short document is made to inform you, as a Home User, of the realities of computer, cellular phone, and tablet repair so that our technicians can provide you with the best possible service. Please read these few pages carefully and don’t hesitate to ask your technician if you are unsure about anything.
A Home User is a person who uses their computer, cellular phone, or tablet at home for personal use. This means that you do not have any work or business related files on your computer, cellular phone, or tablet. If you do have one or two work or business related files on your computer, cellular phone, or tablet, we may still be happy to fix it for you, but you acknowledge that we do not take any responsibility for any consequential loss which may arise out of damage or destruction of those files which may occur, despite our best efforts.
Computers, Cellular Phones, and Tablets
Computers, cellular phones, and tablets are complicated machines and as with anything complicated, things can always go wrong. No matter how much care our technicians take when they are fixing your computer, cellular phone, or tablet, there is always a chance that something unexpected can happen resulting in the loss of information (data) or damage to hardware. This is especially true if your computer, cellular phone, or tablet is in a precarious state to begin with.
As such our technicians follow a routine to ensure as far as possible that:
a) You do not lose any valuable data and,
b) You are aware of the choices available to you if there is a chance you will lose the data contained on your computer, cellular phone, and tablet.
Essentially, there are two types of problems with computers, cellular phones, and tablets:
1. Those that originate as a result of faulty hardware; and
2. Those that originate as a result of a software problem.
Problems originating from faults within the physical structure of a computer, cellular phone, or tablet are usually more serious than those created by software errors. If something has gone wrong with your computer, cellular phone, or tablet’s hardware, then the defective part will most likely need to be replaced. If the defective part (such as a hard drive, CD, Floppy Disk or flash memory) contains data, then there is a high probability that this data has been lost and cannot be recovered. In certain cases, where it may be possible to resurrect your data, and you would like us to try and save it, we may need to take your computer, cellular phone, and tablet back to our base in order to try and retrieve it. Please remember that because hardware faults (especially hard drive faults) are potentially the most dangerous to your data, our technicians make no guarantee that they will be able to recover your lost data.
If your problem has arisen as a result of software errors, our technicians always recommend that you perform a backup of all your important data before any fix is attempted. As with hardware, in some cases it is possible that data has been corrupted to the extent that it has been lost. Software errors are usually only a concern for our technicians if important system data such as files that the operating system uses in order to operate has been affected. To use the analogy of a boat, if the hull is seriously damaged then it may need to be rebuilt, or if there is only a small leak then it can be repaired. Some cases require a fresh start (an event called a “format”) in order for us to leave you with a stable and working computer, cellular phone, or tablet.
If a format is required for a computer, then our technicians will need you to supply them with the product key code(Microsoft Windows Vista, Windows 7 etc.). In addition, if there is any other software or devices that you would like our technicians to install in the event of a format, then you will need to provide us with the appropriate installation and product registration keys. B.I.T.S. PC Repair, L.L.C. can only use original purchased software and / or registration keys.
