otherwise returned your Device, whichever is sooner, and received any payment due from you..
2.2 We shall make reasonable efforts to repair your Device subject to the availability of any parts required and/or the terms of any
relevant guarantee or warranty. We shall perform the Service using our utmost care and skill.
2.3 We shall use high quality compatible parts for the repairs of all Devices.
2.4 We shall require the passcode of your Device in order to test the Device before and after the Service. Should you prefer to keep this information private, we can still proceed with an appointment, but will not be able to perform a full functional check on the Device until you return to the store, which can delay the provision of the Service, if any adjustments need to be made.
2.5 Any time estimate for completion of the service, which may be given to you, is an estimate only and does not form any obligation under the terms of this Agreement. We will aim to return your Device as soon as reasonably possible, however, any Board Level (Level 3) repairs (i.e. repairs to the logic board of the Device) may take at least 5 working days to be completed.
2.6 We shall notify you when the Device has been repaired and is available for collection from store. If the device has not been collected it will be transferred to our central warehouse for storage. Any delivery from central warehouse will be chargeable. If necessary, we shall send a reminder and the device will be recycled if not collected by day 56.
2.7 If we are unable to complete the Service for any reason, or the Service will incur further costs payable by you beyond that initially estimated by us, we will notify you immediately via telephone and/or email. If no fault is found on your Device or you do not accept our revised estimate, we will return your Device to you unrepaired and we reserve the right to charge you an inspection fee in accordance with our standard charges.
2.8 The cost of repair will be calculated where possible in accordance with our standard charges as published from time to time.
2.9 We shall be entitled to keep your Device until all charges payable have been paid. We may also charge an additional fee for storage of your Device.

It will cover the Customer for any re-occurrence of the original fault and for the part replaced/repaired only, however if additional faults arise, they will not be covered under the terms of this Warranty. Furthermore, the Warranty will not cover accidental damage, nor will the cover extend should the device change ownership.

2.16 We ask our Customers to monitor their Device post liquid damage repair, as unknown issues can arise soon after treatment for liquid damage, which are beyond our control.
2.17 Should your Device display any further issues relating to the liquid damage during the Warranty period, we will re-assess and re-quote for the work needed. We will also offer a full refund of all monies paid by you with respect to repairs carried out to your Device, excluding the £20 up-front cost, should you wish to take this option.
