Yemtec Direct - Company Policies

Prices Policy

Yemtec endeavors to offer you competitive prices on current products and services.

The price of the goods you order will be as shown along with the description on our pricelist or website at the time you placed your order.

Total Invoice

The total price invoiced will be charged in respect of the total quantity of Goods. Services may be charged per service provided or in hours or parts thereof if that is our stated method of calculation.
Your total order price will include the price of the product (on the day of shipping) plus any applicable VAT, shipping charges and insurance (unless otherwise exempt).

Price Increase

Yemtec have the right to adjust its prices for any increase in the price of materials, parts, labour, and delivery charges if applicable, changes to original quote, special delivery schedules imposed after quotation, ordered quantities or any other costs of any kind arising for any reason after the date of the order. We also reserve the right and are entitled to make adjustments to the price to take account of any increase in, or the imposition of any new taxes or duties.

Price Change

Yemtec reserves the right to change prices for products displayed at the Yemtec website at any time without prior notice.

Should Yemtec reduce its price on any product after accepting and processing your order you will not be able to claim a refund or credit of the difference between the prices you were charged and the current selling price. Similarly price increases to advertised goods will not be added to orders processed but not shipped pre-increase.

Incorrect Pricing

Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. Goods and services on our website are checked regularly, but nevertheless, prices may fluctuate daily, and we can only honor the correct price that should have been displayed on the day of purchase.

Goods or services purchased via the website using an inadvertently displayed incorrect price may be rectified either way in the case of used goods or returned if that is the clients wish where the goods have not yet been used. Services not yet undertaken can be cancelled or renegotiated to suit the client.

If after accepting your order a pricing error is found in respect of any or all of the goods you have ordered, we will notify you as soon as possible detailing the mis-priced goods and offering you the option of:

  • Placing a new order at the correct price for those goods;
  • Canceling the whole of your order; or
  • Canceling your order for the mis-priced goods and reconfirming your order for the correctly priced goods.

If, within 14 days of receipt of our notice to you, you have not responded by selecting one of the available options above then

  • If all of the goods you have ordered are found to be mis-priced, the entire order will be cancelled automatically and we will refund or re-credit you for any sum you have paid for those goods; or
  • If only some of the goods you have ordered are found to be mis-priced, our contract with you continues and we will deliver the correctly priced goods but we will not be obliged to supply you with the mis-priced goods. In these circumstances we will refund or re-credit you for any sum you have paid for the mis-priced goods.

Some branded/Third-party products* are sold "AS IS" by the Yemtec website, and are accompanied by their manufacturers' standard warranties. "AS IS" products are sold by Yemtec as is, where is, and with all faults, and without express or implied warranties from Yemtec. If you have questions about any manufacturers' warranties that accompany such products, please contact the manufacturer directly.

Every used or refurbished PC or laptop sold by Yemtec is thoroughly tested before it is put to sale. However, if a fault appears we endeavor to repair such units within 3 working days following the day of receipt. However this is subject to parts availability and clear identification of the fault symptom. In the event that the Warranty parts are not available the client will be informed of the delay and the revised expected repair time. If a warranty repair is found to be outside of the warranty terms, it will be deemed as a "Non Warranty Repair" and charges will be applicable.

Software and Data Warranty

Yemtec does not warranty the installation and configuration of software either for warranty or Non Warranty equipments. Yemtec takes every care to protect your data whilst at our repair centre, but can not be liable for data loss or damage. Please ensure that you take all adequate measures by backing up your software before dispatching the equipment to us for repair.

Note that in the event that a new hard drive needs to be fitted, we can under your instruction reinstall your operating system and drivers for you. We will not normally install other software, and we will require you to supply us with evidence that you hold an appropriate license.  If required we will download drivers as part of this service. There is a standard charge for this, depending on whether you have a restore Image CD with your system or not.  Please note this process will destroy any existing data on your PC or laptop.

Warranty Returns Claims

Many faults can be resolved without returning the actual product; therefore under no circumstances should you return products without first contacting us.

If you intend to return goods please print a copy of our RMA form. All goods returned must have a completed copy of this form enclosed with them. You will be given an RMA number which should be visibly printed on the outer packaging.

Please note that we only offer a return to base warranty unless otherwise agreed by writing, it is up to you to return product to us for repair or replacement. We recommend insuring valuable items.  See terms and conditions for returning products that are DOA.

If we cannot carry out a cost effective repair we reserve the right to refund the purchase price of the product or provide a replacement of similar quality.  If no fault is found with a product we reserve the right to charge a no fault found fee to cover administration and labour costs, see note below.*

*Note: Should you wish to return an item for any reason other than a warranty claim, for example if you have ordered the wrong item, please note that we cannot refund postage or carriage charges and that we will charge a 20% re-stocking fee. Individuals who wish to return goods must notify us within 7 days of receipt of goods otherwise the same fees will apply.  Your refund will reflect this charge.  Goods must be returned unused in the condition they were supplied within 7 days of delivery; otherwise a higher re-stocking fee may apply.  This does not affect your statutory rights.

As an example if you order goods to the value of £100 and pay carriage of £7.50 and then return the item unused within 7 days because you no longer require it you will be refunded £80.
