Overdue payments may place the Client on credit hold.

Estimate for Repairs
A pre-diagnostic investigation will be conducted prior to the repair or service commencing. This will include and not limited to evidence of water damage; a physical inspection of the device i.e. if the case is bent, causing tension that will cause the replacement screen to crack again; evidence of prior repairs; the power button; volume control buttons; mute buttons; home screen buttons; cameras (front and back facing). The technician will make notes and take photos of marks, dents, scratches and any other issues before they continue. Any prior damage will not be covered by our warranty.

Any equipment left with Cumbria Tech and unclaimed for 30 days, will be disposed of to recover our costs incurred while carrying out a service or repair. After this period, Cumbria Tech shall have no liability to the Client or any third party.
Non Compatibility Software
The Client understands and accepts that some software applications may no longer work correctly after a repair has taken place. This may be due to the installation of the latest hardware or software. It is therefore the Client’s responsibility to reinstall or reconfigure these applications.
Backing Up Data
Cumbria Tech will make every possible effort to preserve the Client’s data and files, however it should be noted that there are NO GUARANTEES whatsoever that the Clients data and files will remain intact after the repairs.
IT IS THEREFORE THE CLIENT’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT ALL THE DATA AND INFORMATION STORED ON THE EQUIPMENT REQUIRING REPAIRS IS APPROPRIATELY BACKED UP TO OTHER STORAGE DEVICES PRIOR TO HANDING OVER FOR REPAIRS.
Charges will be incurred if Cumbria Tech has to perform a lengthy backup procedure to protect the Clients own data in order to complete the repairs.
We cannot be held responsible for the following during the repairs:
- Loss or corruption of data, files, information or records
- Any loss of business goodwill
- Any losses attributed to the interruption to business activity while equipment is out of service for repairs
- Failure by the Client to follow our reasonable recommendations, instructions and advice to back up data
- Any losses you may suffer arising from failure to use anti-virus software
- Any loss considered to be unforeseeable
- Damage resulting from viruses or other malicious software that may have been transmitted during servicing or repairs and therefore escaped detection
Cumbria Tech will not be liable for any damage caused to other equipment by parts supplied following any repair.
Loss of Data Stored on Computer Equipment
Cumbria Tech, its Employees and Agents cannot be held responsible for any sensitive data left on any devices submitted to be serviced or stored. It is therefore customer’s responsibility to remove any sensitive data from the device before service.

If devices submitted to Cumbria Tech services develop additional faults or becomes unusable whilst on our premises Cumbria Tech will not reimburse any loss claims or costs associated with services provided.

If after a repair, the client experiences problems, which were not originally disclosed to Cumbria Tech prior to the initial repair and the problem is not related to the initial repair, the problem is classified as new and unrelated. These unrelated problems are unfortunately not covered by our warranty.
If we determine that the problem is not covered under our warranty, we will notify you and inform you of service alternatives that are available to you on a fee basis. If you decide not to proceed with the repair, shipping expenses will still be payable if you wish the goods to be returned.
Where items are returned as faulty and no fault is found by Cumbria Tech, shipping expenses will be payable to cover the return of goods.
Cumbria Tech does not provide warranty for data or computer files either expressed or implied. Cumbria Tech disclaims any data warranty of any kind. We will not be responsible for faults caused by viruses, malware or other computer hardware or software failures subsequent to any repair.
Diagnostic service and shipping are not covered under warranty. We do not refund shipping fees.
The warranty on any hardware will be voided if the warranty sticker placed on the warrant-able equipment or any other visible or invisible marking is removed, broken or tampered with. Any warranty work or repairs must be diagnosed and performed by Cumbria Tech exclusively or the warranty will be considered void.
Any warranty offered will become invalid if the manufacturers marked label is removed or tampered with in any way from the parts installed during a repair. Parts are only covered under warranty that fail due to manufacturing defects for the said parts and confirmed by the component manufacturer. Should the part fail because of mishandling of the equipment or inadequate subsequent servicing or failure from “fair wear and tear” the warranty becomes invalid.
Damage to device or its components supplied by Cumbria Tech under a repair contract caused by a power surge or spikes, including but not limited to mains power and telecoms connections or other unspecified sources e.g. voltage fluctuation, amperage fluctuation, water ingress are not covered under the warranty.
Furthermore, the warranty does not cover for any loss or damage due to negligence, mishandling, accidental damage, theft, water flooding, war outbreak, electrical storms, fire outbreak, earthquakes, or any other act of God.
During the performance of our services, we may affect a manufacturer’s warranty validity. It is the Clients responsibility to determine the consequences of our services on any manufacturer’s warranty and take the appropriate action necessary.
No Fix No Fee Policy
Cumbria Tech “No Fix – No Fee” policy means that if we cannot fix the problem with the equipment or does not possess the necessary technical skills, knowledge or ability to resolve the problem or effect the repair, then in this instance there is a “No Charge” for the services provided to the Client. It is at our discretion whether or not a repair is possible.
It is agreed however that we must be given sufficient time and access to the equipment to diagnose the problems.
However, if we are able to resolve the problem but is prevented from doing so by the Client instructing us not to proceed with the service or repair, then in this instance, the Client will be charged for the time spent up until that point (a minimum of 1 hour at the standard hourly rate).
Additionally, if we are able to resolve the problem but prevented from doing so because the Clients does not possess the required accessories, the CD for third party software or software Product Key, then in this instance the Client will be charged for the time spent up until that point (a minimum of 1 hour at the standard hourly rate).
Furthermore, if we provide a clear and precise diagnosis of a failed component within the equipment, however the Client decides not to proceed with the repair or replacement of the said component, then the Client will be charged for the time spent up until that point (a minimum of 1 hour at the standard hourly rate plus VAT).
This policy does not apply to work preformed to recover data, solve computer virus, malware or spyware issues or in cases in which the equipment was affected by a lightning strike.
Board-Only Repair Policy
Cumbria Tech can repair your Printed Circuit Boards with quick turn around time, exceptional customer service and low costs. Boards that have become obsolete may contain components still available today, which can be replaced. Provided the components are identifiable, there is a very good chance that they will be recoverable. Failures are usually caused by solder paste or soldering connections failures and IC’s . In these cases, we can remove identified components, refurbish leads, BGA’s and re-attach them back on boards. Our electronic engineers can quickly, efficiently and professionally remove, refurbish and replace most components mounted on Printed Circuit Boards. Operating equipment sourced from the best manufacturers from all over the world, we can keep your rework costs down. All of our repairs are completed at ESD safe and controlled environments
Board only rework service is not covered by our usual warranty, as the device is not diagnosed or assembled by Cumbria Tech.
By allowing us to carry out repair procedure all our clients agree to trust in engineers knowledge and equipment to carry out successful procedures, however in some cases due to the age of the PCB or inaccurate diagnostics provided by the customer the outcome is not as expected and can render the final repair unsuccessful. In these situations Cumbria Tech can not be held responsible and additional pricing might incur if board is sent for further repairs.
If we provided a quotation and subsequently discover that the quote is incorrect, we reserve the right to cancel the order and return your equipment without any repairs carried out. We will contact you at the earliest convenience to advise you of the situation and you will be given the option to proceed based on a new revised quotation or the order can be cancelled.
If you choose to cancel the order, any monies paid in advance for the repairs will be refunded in full.
