Welcome to IT Solver.
By contacting IT Solver for support services offered under a support plan referenced below (“Support Plan”) or registering a support plan with IT Solver, the individual or entity ("Customer") agrees that the following terms and conditions (“Terms and Conditions”) govern the delivery of support services under the applicable support plan. please note, however, that support services that are provided to assist a customer received benefits under IT Solver’s one year limited warranty, IT Solver support plan or applicable consumer law are governed under the terms of the respective warranty, IT Solver service contract or consumer law regulations. With respect to support services that are governed by these terms and conditions, if customer does not agree to these terms and conditions, customer should not contact IT Solver or register the support plan. To cancel a purchased support plan and receive a refund of any moneys paid, customer should contact IT Solver, as described below. A support plan will be effective when IT Solver accepts customer’s registration (“Effective Date”).
- Services. Upon acceptance of Customer’s registration, IT Solver will provide support services (“Support Services”) on software products or related technologies (“Supported Products”) for the applicable Support Plan, all as described at the following online webpage: https://www.itsolver.net/legal (“Services Agreement”). IT Solver reserves the right to amend the Support Services provided and/or Supported Products covered under a Support Plan, at any time, by posting updates to the Support Plan Support Page. IT Solver will not amend the Support Services and/or Supported Products in a way that (i) reduces the level of effort IT Solver provides under the Support Services, or (ii) materially impacts IT Solver’s obligation to deliver the Support Services, or (iii) materially impacts the rights that Customer receives under the Support Services. For any updates that affect Customer’s Support Plan, IT Solver will notify Customer of the update via the electronic mail address registered by Customer no less than thirty (30) days prior to its posting. The terms described at the Support Plan Support Page are incorporated into these . In the event of any inconsistencies between the terms in this document and the terms at the Support Plan Support Page, the terms at the Support Plan Support Page will govern.
- Support Requests. Support Plans are provided in single, multiple or unlimited Support Request packages. A Support Request is a specific, discrete problem whose origin can be isolated to a single cause. IT Solver will make reasonable efforts to resolve a Support Request but does not guarantee that Support Requests will be resolved. IT Solver, in its sole discretion, will determine what constitutes a Support Request and to the extent permitted by law if the Support Request is resolved. Generally, a Support Request is resolved when Customer receives one of the following: (a) information that resolves the problem; (b) information on how to obtain a software solution that will resolve the problem; (c) notice that the problem is caused by a known, unresolved issue or an incompatibility issue with a Supported Product; (d) information that identifies the problem as being resolved by upgrading to a newer release of the Supported Product; or (e) notice that the problem has been identified as a hardware equipment issue. Under a Support Plan with a limited number of Support Requests, each new Support Request contact made by Customer will decrease the remaining number of eligible Support Requests.
- Response Times. IT Solver will make reasonable efforts to respond to a Support Service request within a reasonable time or within the response time described under an applicable Support Plan (“Response Time”), whichever occurs first, but does not guarantee that a response will be provided within a specific time period. All Response Times are measured in accordance with the Support Plan’s Hours of Operations described on the Support Plan Support Page.
- Current Release. Unless otherwise specified, all Supported Products must be at their most current release level.
- Use. Support Services are not intended for use in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation, communication systems, air traffic control machines or other activities in which the failure of the Support Services to attain a desired result could lead to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental damage.
- Technical Contacts. Support Services are provided to a single person or to multiple persons designated by Customer at time of registration and as allowed under the Support Plan (“Technical Contact(s)”). Technical Contacts are the sole liaisons between Customer and IT Solver for technical support of the Support Plan. For Support Plans with multiple Technical Contacts, if Customer wishes to change the Technical Contacts, Customer must give no less than five (5) days written notice of the change to IT Solver at the applicable Refund Contact Address described below or, if applicable to the Support Plan, enter the changes directly via the Customer’s secure, customized website as described in the instruction documents delivered at the start of the Support Plan.
- Exclusions. Unless otherwise specified in the Support Plan, IT Solver will not provide Support Services relating to problems or issues arising out of or from (a) the use of a Supported Product as a server-based application; (b) issues that could be resolved by upgrading a Supported Product; (c) the use or modification of a Supported Product in a manner for which the Supported Product is not intended to be used or modified; (d) third-party products or technologies and their effects on or interactions with a Supported Product; (e) damage to the media on which a Supported Product is provided, or to the computer on which a Supported Product is installed; (f) use of a computer system that is incompatible with a Supported Product; and (g) issues relating to Internet, email, file management, network configuration, scripting, FX scripting, programming, compiling, debugging, infrastructure design, content creation, content customization, multimedia project planning/design, resource management, budgeting, training, onsite diagnosis, or other issues not within the scope of the Support Services described under a Support Plan.
- Customer Responsibilities. To receive Support Services, Customer must register the Support Plan and follow the access instructions provided by IT Solver. Customer is responsible for all fees in establishing and maintaining email and telephone communications with IT Solver. Customer will cooperate with IT Solver when seeking Support Services by providing information necessary to assist IT Solver diagnosing an issue. Customer is responsible for any and all restoration or reconstruction of lost or altered files, data, or programs. Customer will maintain and implement a complete data backup and disaster recovery plan. Customer is solely responsible for any and all security of its confidential, proprietary or classified information.

Customer will have a reasonable understanding of the Supported Products for which it seeks Support Service and the computer system that it is operating on. Customer may not transfer Support Services to a third party. Support Services are provided for the internal use of Customer only, and any unauthorised distribution of the Support Services will be grounds for immediate termination of these. Customer will take reasonable measures to prevent the unauthorised distribution and use of Support Services. Customer will not abuse its receipt or use of Support Services, including but not limited to, accessing Support Services for issues that have already been resolved.
- Remote Access Support Services. As part of a Support Plan, IT Solver may provide Support Services via Internet remote access, whereby it will access, and if permitted by Customer, control and gather information on Customer’s computer through the installation and use of remote access software. Installation and use of the remote access software by Customer indicates its permission for IT Solver to provide Support Services in this way. All or portions of the remote access software files may remain on Customer’s computer after the Support Service session is finished. Title to the remote access software and all intellectual property rights included therein remains with IT Solver and/or its licensors. Use of the applicable remote access software may be subject to additional licensing terms available at https://www.itsolver.net/remote-support/legal. Customer may not disassemble or reverse engineer any portion of the remote access software. While remote access Support Services are provided, IT Solver will only access, control and gather information on Customer’s computer that it reasonably believes is necessary to analyze and provide assistance for the Support Request. IT Solver recommends that Customer close all files and applications that are not pertinent to the Support Request. The remote access software or the features of Customer’s computer will allow Customer to terminate the remote access Support Service session at any time.
