Repair/Support – Terms of Use

TECH90 is owned and operated by Gregory W. Madore dba TECH90 (hereinafter “TECH90”, “we”, “us”, “our”). We reserve the right to change these terms at any time as we see fit. It is the responsibility of any subscriber, user, customer or prospective customer (“client”, “you”, “your”) to read these terms of service before contacting us to schedule a service engagement. BY CONTACTING TECH90 FOR ANY REASON YOU AGREE TO BE LEGALLY BOUND BY THESE TERMS AS THEY EXIST, OR AS THEY ARE UPDATED OR AMENDED. IF YOU (the “CLIENT”) DO NOT ACCEPT THESE TERMS, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT CONTACT TECH90.

SERVICES – TECH90 provides equipment resale and web design services, as well as support and repair information and services related to audio/video/entertainment equipment, technology integration, computers, portable devices, computer networks and software. We reserve the right to refuse to service any product and any client for any reason that does not violate these terms or local and national law.

TECH90 will attempt to diagnose and provide, or suggest, a solution to the problem(s) and question(s) presented by the client in exchange for a service fee. TECH90 representatives ARE NOT able to provide services OTHER THAN THOSE LISTED HERE. OUR STAFF IS NOT ABLE TO ASSIST WITH MOVING FURNITURE or any other service that involves handling anything other than the ELECTRONIC devices associated with the request that was scheduled for that time.

NOTE TO CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS – AN ESTIMATE FOR REPAIRS, AS REQUIRED (SECTION 9844 OF THE CALIFORNIA BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE), SHALL BE GIVEN TO THE CLIENT BY TECH90 IN WRITING. TECH90 MAY NOT CHARGE FOR WORK DONE OR PARTS SUPPLIED IN EXCESS OF THE ESTIMATE WITHOUT THE PRIOR CONSENT OF THE CUSTOMER. WHERE PROVIDED IN WRITING TECH90 MAY CHARGE A REASONABLE FEE FOR SERVICES PROVIDED IN DETERMINING THE NATURE OF THE MALFUNCTION IN PREPARATION OF A WRITTEN ESTIMATE FOR REPAIR. FOR INFORMATION, CONTACT THE BUREAU OF ELECTRONIC AND APPLIANCE REPAIR, DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS, SACRAMENTO, CA 95814.

If, during the course of our services, additional problems are discovered, additional charges may be required to resolve those newly discovered issues. If additional problems are discovered, we will generate a revised estimate and we will promptly submit that revised estimate to you. No work associated with these additional problems will be performed until you approve the revised estimate. If you are unavailable to approve these additional charges, and no further work can be performed until that approval is provided, all work will stop until you approve the revised estimate. We are not responsible for delays in the completion of a service as a result of our inability to receive feedback from you related to the repair process.

No work will be done to troubleshoot or resolve issues that do not affect the normal operation of the equipment and are not requested by the client.

In some situations, a solution, diagnosis or support may not be completed due to an issue with your computer, its configuration or other issue that is beyond our control. If a situation of this nature occurs, we will make every reasonable attempt to complete the service(s) as requested by the client in another way or at another time. Regardless of the outcome, the client is still responsible for charges for the time and effort spent in an attempt to provide services even if a complete solution is not provided.
