3. 3 MONTH SERVICE WARRANTY
All services come with three month warranty from the date of machine repair, return, signed and accepted by the customer. Safemode warrants that the service rendered will be subject to the certified standards by Safemode. The 3 month warranty claim will be serviced under the conditions that it is not the customer’s fault or wrong doings, the problems are within the scope of the warranted job and the reappearing problems are due to the technician incompletion of the job, with the conditions below:
- Safemode is not responsible for any loss, corruption, or breach of the data on customers’ product during service; and as loss of data may occur as a result of the service, it is the customers’ responsibility to make a backup copy of their data before bringing the product to Safemode for service.
- It is not the customer’s fault or wrong doings: Safemode does not warrant the service for subsequent actions by the customer after the machine has been returned and shown to the customer to be in good working order, such as customer do-it-yourself reinstallation of the operating system, surfing of virus spyware source websites, reinstallation of software that has been known or marked by our technician to potentially cause conflicts with the operating system or other software.
- The problem is within the scope of the warranted job: the warranty covers for repeating problems and requests by customers that can be shown to have not been completed by the technician properly. If the technician attends onsite and the problems the customer identify are not within the scope of the warranted job or the problems do not appear as the customer describe, the customer is liable to pay for the visit as an entire new job.
- The problems reappear due to the technician incompletion of the job: Our technicians always thoroughly check the system to make sure all your requests are completed and other common issues resulted from the diagnosed problems are tested before leaving. If the problems reappear without any subsequent actions by the customer a warranty job will be provided to fix the problem to its entirety.
- Warranty jobs do not renew warranty. The warranty cover is from original date of the invoice which was paid for.
- No warranty is applied for non-paid services (i.e. free computer cleaning, free RAM upgrades).
- Customers are responsible for any fees to deliver computer(s) and/or part(s) to Safemode for warranty claim. Safemode will be responsible for returning the computer(s) and/or part(s) to customers after warranty repairs or replacement.
- Returned computers/goods under warranty will be repaired, or replaced, or refunded at Safemode’s sole discretion.
- There is no warranty for the following:
- Data recovery services.
- Removing or installing non-electronic components or parts (ie removing jammed CD/DVD from CD/DVD drive).

- Removing passwords.
- Cleaning spilt liquid in computers.
- Installing hardware and/or software that are not supplied by Safemode.
VIRUS AND SPYWARE RE-INFECTION: It is often possible for a computer to be reinfected with the same spyware and virus that have been removed by our technicians. Spyware infection and reinfection can be as easy as visiting a bad website, or opening an email attachment. If our technicians have provided you with the instructions and recommendations on protection software and you have not followed the recommendation, we can not service your warranty claim for the reappearing problem.
