Terms of Service

Last update: September 12, 2007

IMPORTANT NOTICE: These Terms of Service apply both to Remote Services, which means Landmark Computer Labs technicians perform technology services for you over the telephone at (703) 370-2242 or via the Internet, and Site Visits, which include services rendered by Landmark technicians who visit your home or business.

Terms and Conditions: Remote Services

(a) General Services: Landmark will attempt to diagnosis your technology problem, provide an estimate of applicable service fees (plus applicable taxes), and then provide you with a technology solution over the telephone or via the Internet. In certain cases, however, problem diagnosis and support may not be completed because of a problem with your computer or its configuration that is beyond our control.

(b) Remote Support Services: Remote support services may be offered to you over the telephone or via the Internet if you have a Windows-based PC (Windows 98 or newer) and a working cable or DSL high speed Internet connection. We cannot guarantee satisfactory performance over dialup connections. If you elect to receive remote support, then Landmark remotely logs on through your Internet connection to view your computer desktop from the Landmark support desk. Landmark stays in contact with you to keep you fully briefed on every step of the process as your technology problem is resolved. Remote support may involve the installation of software on your computer that will allow Landmark to provide the remote support services. By electing to receive remote support, you agree to allow Landmark to use whatever tools deemed necessary to repair your computer, including remote access. You understand that if remote access is used on your computer, the remote support software from the remote session may remain; however, you may fully remove it by using its Uninstall program. We may place a text file on your computer that explains the work tdone on your computer. If such a text file is placed on your computer, you have the option to either save the file for future reference or to delete it from your computer.

(c) Your Responsibility: You understand and agree that prior to contacting or allowing Landmark to perform diagnostic repair or other services on your computer, it is your responsibility to back-up the data, software, information or other files stored on your computer disks and/or drives. You acknowledge and agree that Landmark shall not be responsible under any circumstance for any loss or corruption of data and/or software, or loss of service.

(b) FORCE MAJEURE: If Landmark's ability to render remote services is impaired by you or circumstances beyond the control of Landmark, Landmark may choose not to provide or to discontinue remote services.

(c) LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: To the extent permitted by law, you agree that Landmark’s total liability for damages related to its remote services is limited to the total amount you pay for the remote services, and you release Landmark from liability for any indirect, incidental, special, or consequential damages. LANDMARK IS NOT LIABLE FOR LOSS, ALTERATION, OR CORRUPTION OF ANY DATA OR FOR YOUR INABILITY TO USE YOUR COMPUTER EQUIPMENT OR OTHER PRODUCT.

SERVICE WARRANTY
If you are not satisfied with remote services received from Landmark, please call us at (703) 370-2242 for resolution. We warrant our remote services for seven (7) days following the date you received remote service; however, for repairs necessitated by a virus or spyware, the service warranty is valid only if the anti-virus and anti-spyware protection for your product is installed or updated during the repair or promptly thereafter (i.e., before you connect again to the Internet).
