1.17 Impact Damage
Opening the units outer housing often stresses other parts such as circuit boards, connectors and cables leading to other failures. Circuit Boards and connectors often sustain hairline cracks in such events that whilst left undisturbed do not effect the operation of the unit. The stresses of opening the unit can, and frequently do exacerbate such problems leading to other failures. Any such failures are beyond our control and we will not be liable for any such claims for damage unless specifically caused by us through our negligence. See section 1.22 for further information.

We are not liable for any breach of the Contract caused by matters beyond Our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, acts of God, fire, lightening, explosion, war, disorder, flood, industrial disputes (whether or not involving our employees), failures or interruptions of electricity supplies, weather or exceptional severity or acts of local or central government or other authorities.

Any units found to have liquid damage that has not been declared will be returned to you. A non refundable service and inspection fee of £21 will be payable to us in part compensation for our time spent examining the unit.
1.22 Impact Damage—More
Any unit may operate partially or fully following impact damage. This is no indication that damage (other than that that is immediately visible) has not been caused to the Unit. Prior to opening the Unit and performing a full and detailed examination there is no way of quantifying the full and complete extent of any damage sustained.
The seemingly simple act of opening the Unit can result in such damage becoming more evident. This trait is sometimes difficult to comprehend. Free advice is always available from our Engineering Staff.
These Units are small but powerful computers which contain sensitive electronics and precision optics including glass. They will endure a certain amount of mishandling and physical abuse but, when subjected to excessive forces, they will fail - full stop.
1.23 Dead Display for Investigation
Any unit with a dead display (no image) may have unknown faults. Prior to opening the Unit and performing a full and detailed examination there is no way of quantifying the full and complete extent of any damage sustained. A non refundable investigation service and inspection fee of £21 will be payable to us in part compensation for our time spent examining the unit, this fee is redeemable againsebt any parts which may be required to complete the repair. Our Engineering staff shall contact you with additional fees if required and to plan the next stages of repair. We shall not proceed with parts replacement until discussed with you.
1.24 Manufacturer's Software/Firmware
Manufacturers frequently update the software/firmware that forms the basic operating system of any Unit. We have no control over this and accept no liability for any problems that may occur when software/firmware is updated whether the process is carried out by ourselves or others.
All units are susceptible to Viruses, Malware, Spyware and other incursions malicious or otherwise. Our Computer Systems are scanned daily by the most up to date Anti Virus programs available but we accept no responsibility or liability if your unit becomes infected. We recommend the installation and frequent update of a reputable Anti Virus Program.
Firmware updates are known to cause operational performance issues and can cause some Apps to stop working.
Manufacturers sometimes add warning messages that can be displayed on phone start up if a specific part is changed. This is no indication as to the quality or suitability of the part changed. See web site section “News” for examples
