7. Service contract
If you have an Webquire Service Contract the cover provides you with the labour (whether within the included visits or at a reduced rate) involved in determining and fixing a fault, whether this is hardware, software or user fault. Should the fault be hardware we will fix this and charge you for the part(s) replaced unless otherwise stated. Where possible, we will attempt to replace parts with identical units but reserve the right to use “compatible” parts where identical parts are unavailable. We will not service any equipment that is still under any non-Webquire warranty unless given authority to do so by you, the customer. Any valid warranty claim, or any costs relating to, is the sole responsibility of the customer, not Webquire. Any visit, whether on any Service Contract or not, showing the problem being an infection from any form of malicious code, such as spyware, malware, Viruses and the like, will be charged for.
Will be provided by Webquire staff either onsite or in the Service Centre. Response times are estimates unless otherwise agreed and we will endeavour to meet appointment times but may vary due to unforeseen circumstances. A telephone call will be made to inform a customer of any delay. Labour charges may differ on public holidays, weekends or out of core hours, but this will always be explained prior to the visit.
