Payment: I understand that payment is due in full at the time of service and unless specified in writing and that charges are binding. If the customer is unsatisfied with any of the repairs or service, the customer must notify the technician before he/she leaves the premises. The client acknowledges that there is a $25.00 fee for any returned checks. If Pc Overhaul is asked to perform repair work on-site or remotely that there will be a separate charge.

If parts and/or software must be ordered or extensive repairs are needed, the repairs might take longer.
Impact of Upgrades: Please be advised that it is your responsibility to understand the impact of upgrades to the operating system, applications and utility software.

Any time a computer is accessed, there is a risk of damage including, but not limited to, permanent loss of data or programs, and total loss of function of the computer. This risk is increased when the computer has been infected with viruses, worms, or other malicious software. Be aware that certain repairs, including, but not limited to virus and spyware removal, may damage software and/or data installed on your computer. This is to be expected and may require the re-installation of your operating system, programs, and data at an additional cost. In addition, anytime computer hardware is diagnosed, repaired, replaced or upgraded there is a risk of damage to hardware, not limited to but including the motherboard and hard drive. PC Overhaul will not be liable for any damage to hardware In the course of diagnosis, repair or troubleshooting.
Loss of Data: Data is the most important part of a computer system because it is often irreplaceable. Due to the process of repair, data may get damaged, corrupted or deleted. Pc Overhaul is not responsible for the loss or corruption of any data which may occur while performing work on your computer. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BACKING UP YOUR OWN DATA. You may request that Pc Overhaul back up your data for you, for an extra charge; however, we do not guarantee any backup.
Malware Removal: While PC Overhaul uses advanced techniques and exhaustive efforts to identify and rid computers of malware, you understand that the only 100% guaranteed way to eliminate malware is to reinstall Windows (the PC Overhaul). You, the customer, agree that in no event shall PC Overhaul and/or its repair tech be liable under any circumstances for any damage caused by malware (viruses) that may preexist on your computer or remain after this service.

PC Overhaul will purchase and install antivirus and/or antimalware programs if you request them. Otherwise, PC Overhaul will provide free antivirus and antispyware products but takes no responsibility and provides no warranty regarding the protection such products may or may not provide.

Data Recovery: If data recovery service is requested, I understand that, even if the data is successfully recovered, there is a possibility that individual files and directories on the disk may still be inaccessible due to wear and tear of damaged, malfunctioning, and/or old media. Data recovery services are not guaranteed.
Privacy: PC Overhaul, in the course of repair, service and/or troubleshooting might open and/or access files, folders, discs, programs and other data on your computer; may see your private data during the course of the work.
