TLC Maintenance Agreements Basic Terms and Conditions

  • Requests for Support of any kind (including technical phone support) should be submitted through the LightWerks Support site at https://support.lightwerks.com/.
  • Pricing for standard, non-expedited TLC support hours is $150/person-hour.
  • Pricing for service involving on-site support is good for up to 40 miles from the servicing office. Any additional drive time will be billed at our quoted person-hour rate in increments of one-hour.
  • Each service incident incurs a minimum charge per required technician as follows:
    • Remote support will be billed a one-hour minimum charge; and
    • On-site support will be billed a two-hour minimum charge.
  • Grace periods will be applied to services as follows:
    • Customers will be given a grace period of 15 minutes of additional support time vs. the required minimum or quoted duration.  After the 15-minute grace period, support will be charged in hourly increments from that point on.
    • Phone support is free for up to 15 minutes per incident.  After 15 minutes, phone support will be chargeable at the remote support rate above.  LightWerks reserves the right to charge for phone support incidents beyond a certain reasonable number.
  • LightWerks’ standard support hours are generally defined as 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (local time).  When required, it MAY be possible to get remote or onsite support outside of normal business hours at additional cost.
  • Equipment loaners and warranty extensions are not included in any standard TLC plan, but can be incorporated in a Custom Plan.  Speak to your LightWerks representative about the possibilities and the economic/cost implications.
  • Parking expenses, if any, are the responsibility of the customer. If free parking or validation cannot be provided, we will bill for parking costs plus a $25 processing fee.
  • If a customer must cancel any LightWerks on-site support visit, they must do so at least four business hours prior to the visit. Failure to do so will result in a charge of two person-hours.
  • Pricing does not include the price of consumables or materials required to provide service to covered systems. These will be quoted separately at the time they may be required.
  • Agreement cancellation can be done by either party with 30-day notice in writing.  Refunds will be made in credit or by check on a pro-rated basis.
  • If you sign up for a TLC contract within two weeks of receiving an on-site service call, we may be able to credit the cost of the first visit toward the cost of a long-term contract.
