2 Our obligations in providing the Services
2.3. We shall use Our reasonable endeavours to resolve all issues covered by the Service however, due to the complex nature of information technology equipment and software, regrettably We cannot guarantee that We shall resolve all issues.
2.4. Please be aware that CCPH cannot guarantee completion times.
This is true even with the simplest job, such as installation of an old graphics card. We would imagine such a job to take 20 minutes, however if the customer’s CD is damaged or lost, or the device driver is no longer available, it can take a great deal of time to locate the device driver and complete the job, this is just one example of why we cannot guarantee completion times.
3.1. You agree to follow Our reasonable instructions relating to Our provision of and Your use of the Services and agree to allow Us reasonable access to Your Premises if We need to carry out any work.

3.6. You agree to follow Our Fair Use Policy. All calls made to the Home Computer Helpline Service are subject to Our Fair Use Policy.

4. Charges and Payment

5. Variations to the Terms
5.1. We may make changes to these Terms or add to them, from time to time. We will post the updated Terms on Our Website.

We assume no responsibility for the content of such websites and disclaim liability for any and all forms of loss or damage arising out of the use of them.

9.5. The Website is provided "as is" and on an "as available" basis. We give no warranty that the Website will be free of defects and / or faults. To the maximum extent permitted by the law we provide no warranties (express or implied) of fitness for a particular purpose, accuracy of information, compatibility and satisfactory quality.

10.3 If you have not purchased goods, but have had a repair to your computer/hardware the warranty on the job is for 6 months. If the job was not carried out in accordance with the requirements of this Agreement, please email/call/write to us quoting the invoice number and reference number date job was completed and the work shall be warranted free of charge. However, should you wish an engineer to visit your home in this situation, the hourly rate of labour and a callout depending on your location shall apply.
10.4. Prior to arranging an engineer to call to your premises (after collecting your computer/hardware and not being satisfied with the work done) it is advised to call us on 07507514462 and speak to the engineer that carried out your work. It could perhaps be as simple as a wire in the incorrect socket. NB: as previously mentioned, if the computer/hardware is to be returned to our premises, this shall be free of charge
10.5. During hardware installations, such as for example 'broadband routers' an engineer shall configure the hardware for your individual settings. Should there be a reason to return the goods, the goods shall no longer have the settings within them once they have been returned to the manufacturer and then shipped back out to the customer via ourselves. The settings would need to be re-setup by an engineer just like when it was new, this is a chargeable service.

11.2.

Nothing in this Agreement will operate to limit or exclude any liability for fraud.
11.4. All notices/communications shall be given to us either by post to our Premises (see address above) or by email to email@example.com.

This could include severe weather or other natural disaster, an act of terrorism, strikes or the negligence of third parties. In such cases we each agree that the other will not be responsible for what has happened and will not be responsible for fulfilling their obligations under this Agreement for as long as the event continues.
11.7. A person who is not a party to this Agreement has no rights under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise to enforce any provision of this Agreement.
11.8. Failure by either of us to enforce rights under this Agreement shall not prevent You or Us (as the case may be) from taking further action.
