7.0 Performance of contract

7.2 Whilst every attempt will be made to perform the repairs onsite, it may be necessary to return your system to our base or third party for diagnosis and repair.
8.0 Home PC Repair Warranties
8.1 You acknowledge that the condition, age, specification and problems of your computer may heavily impact the time frames to resolve issues.
8.2 You acknowledge that computers are complicated and sometimes problems are more deeply rooted or complicated than initially diagnosed. You also acknowledge that a problem which occurs with your computer after our offerings may be unrelated to the work we performed for you.
8.3 You acknowledge that any equipment presented for repair may have pre-existing damage or other problems, and that Home PC Repair cannot, due to such pre-existing damage, assume responsibility for such damage or further problems resulting therefrom.
8.4 When we sell you equipment, hardware or software, we may be selling such equipment, hardware or software on behalf of a third party manufacturer or licensor. We do not warrant that the operation of any software we install or service will be uninterrupted or error free. You acknowledge that software (and information technology and communications products generally), including your software, may have errors and may encounter unexpected problems, and accordingly, you may experience downtime and errors in the use of software. You also acknowledge that your use of such software may be subject to a third-party licence.
8.5 We shall honour all terms, conditions and obligations (if any) that are implied or imposed under applicable State or Commonwealth laws concerning the supply of the goods and/or the performance of the services and nothing in these Conditions seeks to restrict, modify, limit or exclude such terms, conditions or obligations. Our express warranty are in addition to and do not affect your statutory rights and remedies (if any).
8.6 We do not provide any warranty for any services for goods subject to our warranty process. For example, let's say a technician provides several hours of services in order to copy data from an old computer, set up a new device with an operating system, restores the data and configure software and printers and then several months later that new device fails under warranty. Providing the goods meet our warranty requirements or ACL obligations we will replace or repair the device, however, we will not provide those several hours of services for free as they are not covered under our warranty. If our services are required they will be billed at our current rates. This may seem unfair at first glance but we do not manufacture the goods we sell and are not responsible for their failure or shortcomings.
