All repairs (unless otherwise stated) IMPORTANT: You are responsible for ensuring that you have backed up all data on your computer or device before we access your system. We will not be responsible for any loss of data, pictures, information, or programs on your device. If you have not made any backups of your data, then we can do this for you. Please contact us as soon as possible to arrange for your data to be backed up before we start work on your device. Please note, mechanical failure of your hard disk or other components inside your device can occur without warning during our intensive diagnostics. Virus and malware infections can also damage your data and could lead to unpredictable problems and could result in data loss. For some jobs, we may need to re-install your operating system. This involves wiping your hard disk clean and re-installing the operating system back to the point when your computer was first purchased. We will contact you prior to doing this but if you require your data to be backed up prior to the wipe and restored back to your computer once the operating system has been re-installed please let us know. There will be additional charges associated with this service. DIAGNOSTICS If on initial inspection, your device repair can be estimated immediately, and / or requires parts to be ordered by us, then the full cost for the repair will be charged on booking in your device. It can take many hours to fully diagnose your device, and a nominal diagnostic charge of £20 will be charged on booking in your item for repair. Liquid damage items are subjected to a non-refundable cleaning fee before we start any repair/diagnosis to the device. The fee for small devices (mobile phones) is £19.99 and larger items (laptops) £29.99. If you provide the parts for the repair of your device, then a charge for fitting will be levied and will be payable on booking in. No Warranty will be given under these circumstances. REPAIR / SERVICE CANCELLATIONS It can take many hours to fully diagnose and repair your computer and often we need to purchase parts that are required for your repair. If at any time you decide to cancel the repair, you will be liable to make payment of any parts ordered for your repair and a calculation of the cost of labour to the maximum of the agreed quoted cost of repair will be charged. We will not release any item back to you until payment in full is received. REPAIR & DIAGNOSTICS TIMES Although we aim to get your device repaired / diagnosed as quickly as possible, the service can sometimes take longer than anticipated. We normally aim to diagnose and repair within 3-10 business days but sometimes the repair can take longer. We often must source parts from outside of the UK and can take several weeks before we receive the parts and clear customs. We will not be held responsible for any repairs that exceed our estimated completion time. We will make every effort to inform you if we expect a delay in our service. If you would like a status update please get in touch with our repair centre by text, phone, whatsapp, or email – details are on our website. ABANDONED COMPUTERS Any device that has not been collected for more than 180 days from being advised will be recycled or disposed of if prior arrangements have not been made.

We will make reasonable attempts to contact the customer using the information supplied by the customer as per Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977. Tablet & Mobile device repairs When ComputaBilda take on your device for repair there are many situations that we are unable to test for before we start the repair and this disclaimer is in place to protect yourself and ourselves from any potential misunderstandings.[1] Unforeseen Damage of MalfunctionI understand ComputaBilda will be unaware of any other potential problems that could arise as a result of the initial damage or by opening / disturbing the internal logic boards and internal cables during dismantle / repair. This may result in additional charges to cover the costs of parts required to complete the repair. We will endeavour to make you aware of this at the time of repair / diagnosis.[2] Parts We UseFor Apple devices, we use THIRD PARTY SCREENS and BATTERY and these are not officially endorsed by Apple. If you prefer an original Apple Screen or Battery this can only be undertaken by Apple. For your total peace of mind all our screens are guaranteed for ONE YEAR (Apple only gives 90 days!). In addition, on Apple iPhones, a notice will be displayed in Settings advising you that the items have been replaced. [3] Original Manufacturer WarrantyThe original manufacturer of your product may refuse to undertake any work on your device if it is repaired by anyone other than them. This includes both in-warranty and out-of-warranty repairs.[4] Waterproof / Water Resistant DevicesTo repair your device, we need to physically get inside it which usually means we have to break the waterproof seal (if any). Some items that are classed as waterproof / water resistant may not be waterproof on return to you. If this will affect the enjoyment of your device, please only ensure you get it repaired with the manufacturer directly to guarantee a waterproof seal on return.[5] Liquid Damaged DevicesAny device that is found to have any signs of liquid damage internally will be exempt from any warranties offered. We may still be able to do the repair but due to the nature of liquid damage/corrosion we will not offer any warranty whatsoever. We will stop working on your device and inform you as soon as we see any signs of internal liquid damage. Only after speaking with you will we continue with the repair.[6] Your data – includes photos, emails, documentsIt is YOUR responsibility to ensure your data is backed up prior to repair.

We will aim to return your Device as soon as reasonably possible, however, any Board Level (Level 3) repairs (i.e. repairs to the logic board of the Device) may take at least 5 working days to be completed, sometimes longer. 2.6 We shall notify you when the Device has been repaired and is available for collection from our shop. If the device has not been collected it will be transferred to our central warehouse for storage. Any delivery from central warehouse will be chargeable at £2.00 per month.

Any tampering of the seals will void the ComputaBilda warranty. 2.13 Our products and repairs are covered by the warranty terms outlined in the table below: 2.14 The Warranty is linked to a specific device as identified by its unique IMEI or serial number and to a specific Customer as identified by the records on our system. It will cover the Customer for any re-occurrence of the original fault and for the part replaced / repaired only, however if additional faults arise, they will not be covered under the terms of this Warranty. Furthermore, the Warranty will not cover accidental damage, nor will the cover extend should the device change ownership. The warranty will commence once the item is notified ‘ready to pick up’ to you from us. 2.15 We do not accept responsibility for any progression in damage where your Device has been repaired elsewhere prior to your repair at ComputaBilda or any issues found in your Device (i.e. ‘Touch Disease’, ripped flex) which were not evident upon initial inspection. Should any issues become evident, once the Device is opened, we will contact you via telephone/text. Liquid Damaged Devices 2.16 We do not accept responsibility for any progression in damage for Devices that have been damaged by liquid. Opening the Device could set off further damage which in some cases may be very serious and irreparable. 2.17 We ask our customers to monitor their Device post liquid damage repair, as unknown issues can arise soon after treatment for liquid damage, which are beyond our control. 2.18 Should your Device display any further issues relating to the liquid damage during the Warranty period, we will re-assess and re-quote for the work needed. We will also offer a full refund of all monies paid by you with respect to repairs carried out to your Device, excluding the £20.00 up-front cost, should you wish to take this option. Liability 3.1 Our entire liability in respect of any single cause of action arising out of or in connection with this Agreement (whether for breach of contract, tort, including negligence, statute or otherwise at all) shall be limited, to the extent that the cause of action related to our supply of the Services, at our exclusive option to: (a) supplying the Services again; (b) payment of the cost of having the Services supplied again; or (c) repaying you any amount that you have paid in respect of the Services. 3.2 If your Device is damaged beyond economical repair as a direct result of a service or repair undertaken by ComputaBilda, you are entitled to a fully functional refurbished device of equal value to your Device, based on its model and condition as received and with the original repair issue resolved.
