DEPOSITS: SC requires that a 10% deposit be provided upon the order of any computer system. This deposit is not refundable should the customer decide to cancel the order, unless we have failed to provide the computer system within the quoted timeframes. This deposit is not refundable as all PCs are manufactured to order and significant time is spent on ordering, constructing, configuring and testing the hardware and software components.

A restocking fee of up to 20% may apply, based on on the total invoiced value.  Testing of returned items will be performed before any credit/refund/exchange is completed.

All effort is taken to ensure that the pricing and specifications of components that we sell are described accurately in all literature (including PriceLists, quotations, print advertising, Internet pages, invoices etc). However, we do not accept liability for any errors or omissions.

Most problems can be solved over the phone. However, should the service staff determine that the goods are faulty, it is the customer’s responsibility to return the goods to our store for repair. Any goods that are out of warranty may still be returned but will incur normal repair charges (including any related freight costs).

SC has a proud reputation of providing high-quality technical support. If you have any problems or questions regarding products you have purchased from us, please do not hesitate to call. If you have questions regarding problems with products purchased elsewhere, we obviously cannot provide anything but the most basic support – you should always contact the product’s supplier before contacting us. SC will not provide any technical support on pirate application or pirate game software.

SC provides free labour for any warranty work required on a complete computer package for the period of 2 years from date of purchase. After the 2nd year, if the goods are still under warranty, no charges will be applicable for the repairs/replacements of the component, but charges for SC labour / freighting will be applied. Most software includes a warranty which covers defects on the actual media (the floppy or CDROM disk). No warranty is provided in terms of functionality or suitability of the program itself.

SC provides a warranty on the functionality of software supplied with new SC PCs for the period of 7 days from purchase. If the customer’s software is not operating correctly (regardless of whether this is caused by user error or hardware failure) we will restore the computers original configuration for no charge.
