Service is on a per-customer basis and is limited to three (3) devices owned by the customer. The fee for the Service is a set fee without regard to usage (i.e., once the Customer has purchased the Service, there will be no refund of the fee even if the Customer does not use the Service thereafter). Customer must purchase the Service in one-year increments. Training and training services are not included in the Service, but are available at PC GUY's standard service rate. If PC GUY is unable to successfully complete one of the services set forth above in store or by logging in remotely to the Customer's computer, Customer may purchase a PC GUY service to address the issue at a 15% discount from the regular service price.

Customer prerequisites: The Service requires a functioning high-speed Internet connection, and up-to-date antivirus software installed on the PCs.


3. PAYMENT


If Customer would like to continue the Service after expiration of the initial Service period, Customer agrees to pay the Service fees (including any applicable taxes) for any extension of the Service at the rates in effect at the time of extension. Unless stated in writing otherwise, all fees and charges are non refundable. PC GUY may change the fees and charges then in effect, or add new fees or charges, by giving Customer notice in advance.


If Customer signs up for automatic renewal, his or her subscription will renew automatically at the end of each 12-month period, unless PC GUY terminates the subscription or Customer notifies PC GUY of his or her decision to terminate the subscription. PC GUY will bill all charges automatically to Customer's credit card at the beginning of every renewal period, at the rates then in effect, unless Customer notifies PC GUY otherwise. PC GUY will notify Customer of the pending subscription renewal at least 30 days prior to the date the subscription is scheduled to renew, except as otherwise required by law. Customer must cancel his or her subscription before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees for the renewal term to his or her credit card.


4. MODIFICATIONS TO TERMS OF SERVICE AND SERVICE


PC GUY may change the terms and conditions of the Service from time to time. Upon any change in the terms and conditions of the Agreement, PC GUY will notify you by posting the changes to the site from which you purchased the Services. PC GUY reserves the right to modify or discontinue the Service with or without notice to Customer.
