  1. What Repair.ng Provides
  2. a) Repair Services and Quotes

 

Repair.ng will make all reasonable efforts to repair your Device with utmost care and skill. Prior to any repair being provided, Repair.ng will provide you with a quote for an estimated cost to repair your Device based on the information provided by you. After you have accepted the quote, Repair.ng will proceed with the repair of your Device. In the event that the actual cost to repair your Device is higher than the cost quoted to you, Repair.ng will obtain your consent before proceeding with the repair. Any time estimate given for the completion of a repair is an estimate only and does not form any obligation under these Service Terms.

 

All quotes provided for a repair exclude applicable taxes. Any quote provided is only valid for the day on which it is provided, as prices may fluctuate.

 

When your Device is repaired and available for collection, Repair.ng will notify you through your preferred contact method.

  1. b) On-site Repair Service

 

Repair.ng provides an on-site repair service to service repairs at your preferred location. The on-site repair service is only available in select locations. Prior to making an appointment, you must confirm that your preferred location (either a personal or business address) is in scope. Customers will make on-site repair service appointments online through the Repair.ng website. Same day appointments may not be available at all times. Repair.ng will confirm your appointment within 24 hours of your appointment. In the event that you must cancel an appointment, you are responsible for cancelling your appointment 24 hours in advance, or you will be charged a cancellation fee. Repair.ng reserves the right to cancel or reschedule any appointment for reasonable cause (including, but not limited to, inclement weather, traffic congestion, etc.).

 

Repair.ng will arrive at your preferred location at the scheduled time. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, Repair.ng will consider your appointment cancelled, and you will be charged a cancellation fee. All on-site repair service repairs will be charged a minimum fee, regardless of whether Repair.ng is able to repair your Device. Further information on fees can be found at repair.ng/onsite-repair.

  1. c) Mail-In Repairs

 

Repair.ng provides a mail-in repair service. Prior to mailing in your Device, Repair.ng will provide you with a quote for an estimated cost to repair your Device based on the information provided by you. Repair.ng will provide you with shipping instructions and a waybill from one of our national courier partners who will come and pick up your Device. Alternatively, you will be responsible for shipping your device to us for pickup. For repairs that are less than N40,000, shipping is extra, and will not be included in the quote provided to you. For repairs that exceed N40,000, shipping costs are included in the price you are quoted for repair. Repair.ng will collect a non-refundable deposit for any mail-in repair. This deposit will be credited towards the final cost of the repair. If you choose not to proceed with the repair for any reason, Repair.ng will return your Device at no cost to you. However, any deposit paid is non-refundable.

 

If you elect to mail-in your Device for a repair, you agree to take the necessary precautions to protect and safeguard your Device to avoid additional damage during the mail-in process. Repair.ng uses reputable providers. Some of them provide tracking information to facilitate its mail-in repair service. Repair.ng is not responsible for any loss, damage or theft that may occur during the mail-in process.

You are responsible for preparing your Device to be serviced, including unlocking your Device and removing any passwords, removing your personal data and settings, and removing the SIM and/or SD card prior to shipping your Device. If Repair.ng is unable to complete a repair due to your failure to comply with the above requirements, Repair.ng will return your Device back to you, and you will forfeit your deposit.

  1. d) Repair and Device Financing

 

Repair and Device financing is available with some third-party financial institutions. The terms and conditions of any financing provided by them will be governed by the agreement between you and the firm. Repair.ng is not responsible for agreements and payment terms regarding financing.

Repair.ng requires the passcode of your Device in order to provide repair services. If you do not want to share your passcode, Repair.ng can proceed with diagnostics, but will be unable to perform a full functional check until you are present at a Repair.ng store, which may delay your repair. If you are mailing your Device in, you will be liable for any extra postage costs incurred if Repair.ng is unable to perform a full functional check due to Repair.ng’s inability to unlock your Device.

  1. b) Device Abandonment

 

Repair.ng will notify you through the contact methods you have provided when your Device has been repaired and is available for collection.

 

If we are unable to contact you initially, we will continue to make a reasonable effort to notify you that your Device is ready for pick up. However, Repair.ng is not responsible for any Devices not claimed within 60 days from the date you are first notified that the Device is ready for pick-up. After such time, Repair.ng may dispose of the Device in its sole discretion.

It is your responsibility to backup all data, software, and programs on your Device prior to submitting your Device for a repair. We accept no liability for loss or corruption of any and all data, information, software or programs stored on your Device.

  1. Privacy

 

You agree that the Repair.ng Privacy Commitment, available for inspection at our website, as it may be updated from time to time (the “Repair.ng Privacy Commitment”), shall apply to your use of the Products and Services. You hereby consent to the collection, use and disclosure by Repair.ng and its agents of your personal information collected in connection with provision and/or use of the Products and Services, for the purposes identified in the Repair.ng Privacy Commitment and acknowledge that those purposes include the exchange of your account and usage information with other Repair.ng Affiliates, for the purpose of offering additional services or products that you may be interested in.

 

Repair.ng also sells third party products and services. These third-party products and services are governed by their own terms, conditions and privacy policies.

 

In this Agreement, the term “Affiliates” refers to entities, businesses and/or divisions including but not limited to, TELUS Communications Inc. and its subsidiary companies, as they may exist from time to time, including those subsidiaries or divisions that carry on business under various names.

  1. General Terms
  2. a) Limitation of Liability

 

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, neither Repair.ng nor its Affiliates, nor their respective directors, officers, employees, or agents (collectively, the “Repair.ng Entities”) shall be liable to you or any other party for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, consequential or punitive damages, or any other damages or losses whatsoever arising directly or indirectly from your use of the Products and Services (including, but not limited to: defects, malfunctions, or complete breakdowns of any Device; electrical shocks, burns, fires or explosions caused by any Device; loss of profit, loss of earnings, financial loss or loss of business opportunities), regardless of the cause of action, including negligence, and even if one or more of the Repair.ng Entities have been advised of, or could reasonably have foreseen, the possibility of such damages or losses.

 

If for any reason a Repair.ng Entity becomes liable to you or a third party arising out of or in any way connected with the Products and Services, regardless of the form or cause of action or the number of claims asserted, the aggregate liability of the Repair.ng Entities to you or such third party is limited to the greater of N500 and the fees paid by you to Repair.ng for the particular Products and Services giving rise to the claim, in the three months immediately preceding the last occurrence of the damages or losses.

 

Repair.ng is not responsible for any cosmetic issues that do not affect the functionality of the Device, such as scratches or scuffs that may occur during repair services.

 

Repair.ng does not take any responsibility for any progression in damage for Devices that have been damaged by liquid. Although unlikely, opening the Device could initiate further damage and, in some cases, may be very serious and/or irreparable. We ask our customer to monitor their Device post liquid damage repair as unknown issues can arise soon after treatment for liquid damage which are beyond our control. If issues arise, please contact us and we can reassess the damage. In cases where further repair is needed there may be additional costs incurred.

 

Repair.ng is not responsible for any loss of function of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor in the case of an Apple iPhone ‘Home Button’ repair.

  1. b) Indemnity

 

To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you agree to indemnify, defend, release and hold Repair.ng, and its Affiliates, subcontractors, suppliers, vendors and licensors, and any of their respective affiliates, shareholders, partners, directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively the “indemnified parties”), harmless from and against (i) all claims, actions, lawsuits and any other legal action brought by any third party against any of the indemnified parties arising in any way from the Products and Services (a “third party action”); and (ii) any and all related losses, damages, settlements and judgments (including payment of attorneys’ fees and costs of any of the indemnified parties) incurred by, assessed or found against, or made by any of the indemnified parties relating to or arising from any such third party action (“third party related losses”), even if such third party action and third party related losses arise from the negligence of any kind or degree of any of the indemnified parties, breach of contract or warranty, strict liability or any other theory of liability. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the third-party indemnification obligation shall not apply to any willful, wanton or intentional misconduct of any of the indemnified parties, or any other wrongdoing where applicable law does not permit indemnification.

  1. c) Termination

 

You may terminate the Agreement at any time by notifying Repair.ng of the date you want the cancellation to be effective.

 

Repair.ng may suspend the Products and Services if you contravene any provision of these Service Terms, including your obligation to pay for the Products and Services as charges become due. Repair.ng may terminate the Products and Services (i) immediately and without notice, where Repair.ng determines that the action is necessary to prevent fraud, (ii) if you do not remedy any other breach of these Service Terms within 15 days of receiving written notice of the breach from Repair.ng, (iii) if you become a bankrupt or, if you are a business customer, a receiver or receiver-manager is appointed to manage the affairs of your business, or (iv) for any reason, upon 30 days written notice to you.

  1. d) Arbitration

 

If you use the Products and Services in the operation of a business, any claim, other than the collection of amounts owing to Repair.ng, relating to (i) your Agreement, (ii) use of the Products or Services or any equipment used with the Products or Services; (iii) sales materials or advertising relating to the Products or Services or any equipment used with the Products or Services; or (iv) relationships with third parties arising through use of the Products or Services, must be referred to private and confidential arbitration before a single arbitrator chosen by the parties. The expense of arbitration will be shared equally. Notice to arbitrate a claim should be sent to Repair.ng Head office. The arbitration will be conducted in accordance with the current rules relating to commercial arbitration in the province in which you reside. Additionally, you waive any right you may have to start or participate in any class action against Repair.ng or its Affiliates and you agree to opt out of any class proceeding against Repair.ng or its Affiliates.

  1. e) Miscellaneous

 

The federal laws and regulations of Nigeria, and applicable provincial laws and regulations, govern the Agreement. You may not assign or transfer the Agreement without Repair.ng’s prior written consent. If any provision of these Service Terms is prohibited or unenforceable in certain circumstances, the remaining Service Terms shall apply and be construed in those circumstances as if such provision had never been written. The failure of Repair.ng to require or enforce strict performance of any provision of these Service Terms in a particular instance shall not be construed, in other circumstances, as a waiver of any right conferred upon Repair.ng.
