All my rights as a indivudal who services the public are reserved. I reserve the right to: refuse to accept you as a new customer, halt work in progress if I feel like my time is being taken advantage of by being abusive verbally, in writing or in person. I am one person with many customers, I will do my best to keep you up to date on the work I am doing, but certain circumstances can cause the work length to be different than what I originally specified or more than you can bear, ranging from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. If you can not wait that long for your device to be serviced please seek a firm that has many technicians that can offer a quicker turn around time. I do offer limted device loaner options if stock is available. Please make an inquiry if you need a loaner machine when you bring your device in to be serviced.
If you work for any government entities or are being contracted by any entity that has a relationship to a government entity where you are ordered to observe or obtain records about my service operations I reserve the right to charge you directly if your inquiry requires me to act to protect my rights, or act on any order or requirement you communicate to me that takes time out of my work day or interferes with my rights in any way. I reserve the right to answer exclusively in writing to any order or notice that requires me to respond. Regardless of what entity you work for, or what you are asked to do, you are always liable for your actions whether its on behalf of another or the result of your own decision.
I reserve the right to charge you a full fee or half fee in the event that you are over 10mins late or do not show up when I arrive at your location and do not call me ahead of time, by at least 3 hrs before the appointment. The cost will be determined by how far I have to travel, If I could have had other same time appointment that day, or how you respond to being held accountable for being late or not showing up. If for any reason I feel like my time is being wasted I will charge you for my time, and that will be the end of our arrangement. My time is just as valuable as your time, please consider that when you are making appointments with me. If you give me notice before hand that you might late and you specific how late you might be and follow though with that then there will be no charge, communication is key.
I am a bit more flexible when you visit my office for being late as I know traffic and other issues can cause problems for being timely and since I didn’t make a special visit to your location. But if it becomes a habit more than twice I may reserve the right to charge you for loss of time. I reserve the right to charge you half of my regular fee if you are later than 20mins to an appointment with out 3hrs advance notice. Full fee if you fail to show up without giving me 3hr advance notice.
When I am late or do not show: I will compensate you by giving you a discount on my first hour fee on your or my next visit. The discount will be determined by the lateness of my visit or if I didn’t show up at all due to my fault: I.E forgot about the appointment, or was late getting out of a previous appointment and failed to call at least 3 hours in advance.
