The technician will make every effort to determine the nature of your system problems and errors and to correct those problems and errors over the phone. You will be charged according to the fee structure explained on the “Tariffs” section of the Website. If the technician cannot correct your problem over the phone, he may recommend alternative courses of action.
Services do not generally cover any server-related problems (to the exception of Internet access), unless agreed upfront.
B. ON-SITE SERVICE.
1. Parts and Labour.
Based on your description of the problem and information provided by you, the technician may recommend on-site service.

Additionally, the technician will need to have the full address of your system’s location and know whether it is a residence or business.
2. An Adult Must Be Present At Residences.
