Terms and Conditions
Computer Angels is the trading name of Computer Angels Limited (Company number 5323507). By requesting a product or service from Computer Angels Limited you accept these terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are subject to change at any time, and it is your responsibility to check these terms and conditions each time prior to purchasing from Computer Angels Limited.
Goods supplied to the customers remain the property of Computer Angels Limited until such time as they have been paid for in full. In the event of insolvency or liquidation the customer agrees to allow Computer Angels Limited or its agents reasonable access to such goods in order to facilitate their removal.
Caring for your Equipment
Where we take equipment back to our workshop or offices we undertake to take good care of it and to return it in the same condition as we received it (or more usually in better condition than we received them it). Let us know if you are aware of any deficiencies as soon as possible and we will endeavour to sort things out.
In the unlikely event of us being responsible for losing or damaging a piece of equipment we undertake to replace it with a piece of equipment of similar or better specification.
Computer Angels Limited undertake to safeguard your equipment and data as far as is reasonably possible. Where backups are taken in our workshop we may retain this data for three months or longer as a matter of course to safeguard you in the event of subsequent data loss, however we undertake to respect your privacy; your data is secured and staff policy expressly forbids unauthorised access to this data.
Computer Angels Limited will as a matter of course record passwords related to work we have carried out or equipment that we have installed as a service to our clients. This data is securely stored and encrypted where we deem it necessary.
We take all reasonable precautions to prevent the loss of client data whether working on site or in our offices. We are conscious that backing up data is a time consuming task, and when working on site we are less likely to routinely back up data unless we perceive a real risk of data lost, in order to keep your charges as low as possible.
However when working with systems that often already have problems it is inevitable that from time to time data loss will occur. When this happens we undertake to make all reasonable effort to recover this data using our in-house expertise, and at out own expense. If we are still unable to recover lost data we will then compensate customers on a case-by-case basis.
By accepting our services the customer agrees to indemnify Computer Angels Limited from any losses arising from data loss as a result either directly or indirectly from our work. This clause is not an attempt to avoid responsibility, but rather an attempt to avoid vexatious litigation - our view is that if it really was that important then you would have backed it up anyway.
Cost Plus Procurement
Where we undertake to procure equipment on a cost plus basis cost is taken as the purchase price of the equipment, as well as shipping, miscellaneous duty charges, and any other surcharges and expenses that we incur or have to pay to suppliers or other third parties. We will happily provide you with documentation to support this price.
On occasion we will work on a zero margin basis and charge for the time taken to arrange procurement of goods. As we have no profit margin to protect us from the costs associated with returns we reserve the right to charge administration fees for returns under warranty or otherwise.
Zero Markup Procurement

Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977
