HCM! Guarantee

A guarantee is a guarantee.  When any problem on your computer gets fixed, it is guaranteed to stay fixed, or it's free!  Just like your favorite auto repair shop, if the replaced part breaks, you get another one for free (just don't remove the engine or take the new part out by yourself, or course!).

What this means is that you will have the best computer services anywhere in Tucson, and the problem will be fixed correctly the first time, and you will see that it is fixed while I am still present to help you.  If the same problem recurs (this really never happens), I will come back, at no charge to you, and make absolutely sure that your issue is resolved.  Unlike a repair shop at which you drop your computer off, and they supposedly fix it, and then call you to pick it up, I will visit your home or other location within the Tucson metro area for free and fix your computer while you watch or wait.  If you prefer, I will show you what I am doing and explain why, while the work is being done.  This could help you in the future if you need to make small repairs.  This may seem counterintuitive to HCM!'s ability to generate income, but I believe that a fully educated and informed public is more important than short term profit.

The other advantage of the HCM! Guarantee and the free estimates, is that once the problem is determined, just like your favorite auto shop, I price my fixes per job type by the hour (or quarter hour, actually) so that you will know ahead of time how much the fix will cost you, regardless of the amount of time that it actually takes to complete the service.  This means that a complete virus / malware /etc. removal will always cost one and a half hours (and there is a special for that), so that you will always know ahead of time what to budget.  I have a Pricing Guide on the site to help you determine in advance what any or all of my services will cost.  There are a few services, for which I cannot accurately estimate the time involved, such as data recovery and some business services, but most often, this will be irrelevant to the home computer user.  The bottom line is that when I quote you a free estimate, that is exactly what your bill will be for the service when it is complete, regardless of whether it took a little longer.  There are no suprises or hidden costs whatsoever!

Free Estimates

As I stated above, I price the services by job type and will give you a free estimate of the number of hours that it will take to complete the particular service.  This is because I have performed literally thousands of computer fixes for clients in my lifetime (born in 1972) and after doing the same thing dozens of times, you get to know exactly how long it will take to do it.  There was a guy that I knew back in Lancaster, Pennsylvania who owned an auto shop back before I disavowed my use of the internal combustion engine, and he would tell me over the phone how much the repair would be, based on what I told him over the phone was wrong with my Peugeot, Renault or Volvo.  He was always on target with his estimates, and I learned from him that he had a book which listed all of the possible car repairs which could be done along with the number of hours which each repair should take.  He would then bill me the number of hours which was stated in the book regardless of how long it actually took him, and I think it usually took him more hours than were listed in the book.  My Pricing Guide is not quite as complete as his book, but I think that when seen, you will see that the best computer consulting services for the lowest cost are right here with HCM!

Well, I appreciated that so much that I decided to emulate it in my service of computer consulting and repair.  "Do Unto Others ...", right?  If it is at all mostly (or even slightly) possible to discern over the telephone what the problem is (and I have done that for various call centers servicing computer issues), I can quote you a real-time and free estimate on the number of hours (or fractions thereof -- I bill by the quarter hour) which it will take to fully resolve your issue under most circumstances.  Once I give you that estimate, I will bill you accordingly for the service(s) supplied in the estimate.  However, on occasion, there may be other issues which may also be in play which participate in creating your particular problem, and I will let you know about those issues should they become apparent so that you are able to decide whether you would like me to resolve those, in addition.  Regardless, I will never charge for more than the amount of time that I am actively fixing your problems.  This means that when I am waiting for 15 minutes for an application to install, and I am sitting there, twiddling my thumbs, I am off the clock and you will not be charged for that portion of my time, which I believe is completely unique to any computer repair service in Tucson.

So, if you even suspect that there may be some sort of problem with your computer, please do yourself a favor and email, call or contact HCM! today so that you may be able to enjoy the best and lowest cost computer consuting and repair services in Tucson!  The call is free, the estimate is free, and I will come to your house in the Tucson metro area for free, so that your problem is fixed and fixed permanently, with my HCM! Guarantee.

Free House Calls

All travel expenses to house calls within the Tuscon Metro area are FREE of additional charges.  If you live outside this area, there is a $2 per mile travel charge added to the initial charge for each visit.  The Tucson Metro area is defined for these purposes as the 240 square mile area contained within the rectangular boundary bordered on the North by Ina Road, on the East by Harrison Road, on the South by Los Reales Road and on the West by Camino De Oeste.  The Buddy's Deals® discount does not apply to travel expenses outside the Tucson Metro area.

Services Not Covered by Free Estimates

Despite that I have performed various miracle fixes on computers of all types literally hundreds of times, there are some types of problems for which the time it will take to repair the problem cannot be estimated accurately, and there are some types of services which are not practiceable for pricing estimates.  The general categories for which free estimates are not available are Data Recovery, some Business Class Services and Interactive Databased Web Application Design.  For these categories of services, HCM! can quote an exact hourly rate and will do its best to adhere to any prenegotiated budget constraints, but HCM! will not be able to quote an exact estimate of the cost of the services, due to the nature of the services.

MeetUp.com Promotion, Buddy's Deals® Coupon and Various Other Half Price Discounts

On 1 June 2011, Buddy's Deals® provided the first 50% off discount coupon featured on their website, and there have been several similar promotions since then.  Anyone who purchases the coupon or mentions this discount will receive the 50% off discount for any applicable work performed.  Each day they will feature a brand new Tucson deal that gives you a great discount or special.  Please sign up at the website buddysdeals.com so they can add your name to the list.  This offer expired at the end of the year 2011, however (at the sole option of HCM!) it is being extended no later than through the end of May 2012.

As of 15 March 2012, a similar set of half price promotions have been arranged with various Tucson area MeetUp Groups.  See the details about how to sign up for Tucson MeetUp.com Groups on the MeetUp Website.  The details regarding these and all other half price promotions appear below.

To receive a discount for services on all other half price promotions, including the Occupy Tucson half price promotion, you must only mention the promotion when requesting services from HCM!.

Actually, again, as is stated above, you do not have to have purchased the Buddy's Deals® coupon in order for you to receive the half price discount.  All that is required in order for you to get all applicable HCM! services at half price, is that you simply mention the half price promotion when requesting services from HCM!.

There are a few categories of services and other items for which the half price promotion does not apply.  You cannot combine multiple half price promotions (you cannot, say, use two promotions to get 75% off), although there is no limit on the number of hours of covered services to which any promotion will apply.  It is important to note that the discounts only apply to certain services actually rendered by HCM! to you, and the discounts do not apply to any non-services, such as the price or cost of an item purchased, any third-party services not directly rendered by HCM!, and/or several other categories and items listed below.  These categories and items are the cost of any computer components, other hardware or any third party products or services to be purchased, travel expenses ($2 per mile from boundary) for house calls outside the Tucson metro area, Interactive Databased Web Application Design, Business Class Services and IP-based Server Security Testing.  The half price promotion does apply for all other services offered by HCM! which are not mentioned above in this paragraph.  If you are ever unsure of what exactly is and what is not covered by the half price discount, please feel free to look it up in the Pricing Guide description for that service.

Your privacy is very important to HCM!.  We want to make your experience on this Site and the Internet as a whole as enjoyable and rewarding as possible, and HCM! wants You to use the Internet’s vast array of information, tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.  HCM! is committed to providing You Tucson's Best and least costly services and resources so as to make this possible for You.

HCM! has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy and security.  This Privacy Policy describes how HCM! collects information from all end users of our Site services as well as all other services performed by HCM! for You (hereinafter as "Services") -- those who access some of our Services but do not have accounts (hereinafter as "Visitors") as well as those who may purchase Services or Products form HCM! or third party entities, and/or those who do or do not pay a monthly service fee to subscribe to the Service (hereinafter as "Members") -- what HCM! does with the information HCM! collects, and the choices Visitors and Members have concerning the collection and use of such information.  We request and encourage that You read this Privacy Policy carefully, and at your option, retain a copy for your records, and visit back regularly to this page in order to check for any updates to the TOS or the Privacy Policy.

Personal Information HCM! Collects and How It Is Used

Introduction:  HCM! collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the various parts of our Services and the network of Sites accessible through the Service.  We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as You use our Products and Services, and generally, do not share this information with third parties.  However, HCM! may disclose personal information collected if HCM! has received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances, such as when HCM! believes that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described herein.

Registration:  Members may be asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Products or Services (such as the resource at http://my.heycomputerman.biz/) including but not necessarily limited to name, address, email address, telephone number, availability, billing information (such as a credit/debit card number), and the type of browser and personal computer being used to access the Services.  The personal information collected from Members during the registration process is used to manage each Member’s account (such as for billing purposes).  This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or in special circumstances.

However, in instances where HCM! and a partner jointly promote our Services, HCM! may provide the partner or the partmner may collect certain personal information, such as the name, address, username, and credit/debit card information of persons who subscribed to the HCM! Services and/or the partner service as a result of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing HCM! and the partner to assess the results of the promotion.

In this instance, personal information may not be used by HCM! or the partner for any other purpose, notwithstanding partner's terms to the contrary.  HCM! may also generate non-identifying and aggregate profiles from personal information Members provide during registration (such as the total number, but not the names, of Members).  As explained in more detail below, HCM! may use this aggregated and non-identifying information to sell advertisements that appear on the Site or Service.

Jump to: Guarantee | Free Estimates | Free House Calls | Services Not Covered | Discount Coupons, Promotions and Half Price | Terms of Service | Privacy Policy | Payment and Invoices | Legal Blather | GPLv3 | Pricing Guide

HCM! Partners and Sponsors:  Some products and services may be offered to Visitors and Members in conjunction with an affiliate, independent contractor seller or non-affiliated partner.  To provide Visitors and Members some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information.  In these instances, You will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and You may decide not to use that particular service or feature.

Additionally, partners of HCM! may have advertisements or co-branded Web Pages that are cosponsored by an affiliate, independent contractor seller, or non-affiliated partner.  HCM! may share non-identifying and aggregate information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or services offered.

Online Shopping:  At some Web sites, You can purchase products and services or register to receive materials, such as a newsletter, catalog or new product and service updates.  In many cases, You may be asked to provide contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.

If You complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient, You may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient’s name, address, and phone number.  HCM! has no control over the third parties’ use of any personal information You provide when placing such an order.  Please exercise care and all appropriate diligence and caution when doing so.

If You order services or products directly from HCM!, HCM! will use the personal information You provide only to process that order.  We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

Online Advertisements:  HCM! may display some or any online advertisements.  In those cases HCM! shares aggregated and non-identifying information about Visitors and Members collected through the Site registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers.

Additionally, in some instances, HCM! uses this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements or joint ventures.  For instance, an advertiser or joint venture company tells HCM! details regarding the audience they want to reach and provides HCM! with an advertisement tailored to the audience.  Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information HCM! has collected, HCM! may then display or send the advertisement to the intended audience.  HCM! does not share personal information about Visitors or Members with these advertisers or joint venture companies except to the extent necessary to provide such advertisements.

Responses to Email Inquiries:  When Visitors or Members send email or Site form inquiries to HCM!, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry HCM! receives.  HCM! does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address or any other information provided with any third party except to the extent necessary for HCM! to read, archive and respond to the email or Site form request.

Voluntary Customer Surveys:  HCM! may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys.  HCM! encourages our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types and the quality of products and services HCM! offers and how HCM! provides them to You.  Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party.  Participation in the customer surveys is strictly voluntary.

HCM! may take the information HCM! receives from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other customers HCM! may have, to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information).  HCM! then uses the aggregated information to improve the types and quality of our services to You, and to develop new services and products.  This aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties.

Special Cases:  It is the policy of HCM! not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of Members in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing You an opportunity to opt out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

However, HCM! may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members, or information regarding your use of the Services or Site accessible through our Services, for any reason if, in the sole discretion of HCM!, HCM! believes that it is reasonable to do so, including but not necessarily limited to: credit/debit card agencies, collection agencies, merchant database agencies, law enforcement, or to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, the Child Online Privacy Act, other regulations, or governmental or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the TOS, or other Member or Visitor policies; to operate the Site and Services properly; or to protect HCM! and Members, Affiliates, Employees, Private Contractors or Clients.

"Cookies" and How HCM! Uses Them.  A "cookie" is a small data file that can be placed on your hard drive when you visit certain Web sites.  HCM! may use cookies to collect, store, and sometimes track information for statistical and/or Site functionality purposes to improve the products and services HCM! provides and to manage HCM!'s telecommunications networks.  Cookies, or at least the cookies that HCM! uses on the Site, do not contain any personally identifying information.  Rather, the cookie contains a randomly generated identifier string which is used to reference your data which is securely stored in databases on the HCM! Site.  Therefore you may safely delete from your computer or device any of your HCM! cookies without compromising the integrity of the data stored on the Site.

If You are a Visitor or Member HCM! may use a cookie to improve Site functionality, save your settings and to provide customizable and personalized services.  These cookies do not enable third parties to access any of your customer information.  In fact, HCM! has privately developed a groundbreaking method for securely storing sensitive data which, if accessed by any computer cracker not in its entirety, will render any data obtained completely useless to the computer cracker.  Furthermore, certain precautions are taken using this groundbreaking method which makes it virtually impossible for the computer cracker to access the entirety of the data, due to constantly varying storage locations of that data.  Due to Trade Secrets, pending patents and various other security reasons, further details of this new HCM! method of data encryption and obsfucation cannot be revealed without prior written contract.  Additionally, be aware that if You visit other Web sites where You are prompted to log in or that are customizable, You may be required to accept cookies from those web sites in addition to any cookies from the HCM! Site.

Advertisers and partners may also use their own cookies.  HCM! does not control use of these cookies and expressly disclaims responsibility for information collected through them.

HCM! Commitment to Children’s Privacy.  Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to HCM!.  It is HCM!'s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPA) and all other applicable laws.  Therefore, for reasons regarding both COPA and age of contractability, HCM! restricts the Site to persons eighteen years or older.

YOU MUST BE EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OR OLDER TO ACCESS THIS Site.  IF YOU ARE UNDER EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO ACCESS THIS Site FOR ANY REASON.  DUE TO THE AGE RESTRICTIONS FOR USE OF THIS Site, NO INFORMATION OBTAINED BY THIS Site, FALLS WITHIN THE CHILD ONLINE PRIVACY ACT (COPA) AND IS NOT MONITORED AS DOING SO.

Public Forums:  Please remember that any information You may disclose in any Blog, Forum, Guestbook, Member Directory, or other public or private areas of the Site or the Internet, becomes public information.  You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information on the Site.

HCM! Commitment to Data Security:  Services and web sites HCM! sponsors have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under HCM!'s control.  While HCM! will make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of HCM!'s Site, network and systems, HCM! cannot guarantee that HCM!'s security measures, unique and groundbreaking as they may be, will prevent third party computer crackers from illegally obtaining this information.

Where to Direct Questions About Our Privacy Policy:  If You have any questions about this Privacy Policy or the practices described herein, You may contact HCM! through the contact information provided on the Site.

Revisions to This Policy:  HCM! reserves the right to revise, amend, or modify this policy, the TOS, and any other policies and agreements at any time and in any manner at the sole and exclusive discretion of HCM!, by updating the contents of this page.

Payment and Invoices

HCM! currently accepts the following forms of payment for services rendered or for down payments on computer equipment of third party services to be purchased.  HCM! accepts cash in US Dollars, personal or business checks drawn on an account from a local banking institution or credit union in the Tucson area, Credit On Delivery (C.O.D.), certified cashiers' check, or money order.  At this time, unfortunately, HCM! does not accept credit cards, PayPal, checks not drawn on an account from a local Tucson area banking institution or credit union, or any other online digital form of payment.  You may, however, use your credit/debit card to purcase a 50% off Buddy's Deals® coupon for any services offered by HCM!.

If you are a residential customer who requires a free house call, you typically will not be given an invoice, but will of course be provided with a receipt for payment of services which are rendered at the time of your house call.  For other services which are rendered for a longer term or over a longer period of time, you will always be provided, usually via email (unless a printed version is specifically requested), with an invoice stating the services performed, the rate and cost per item of service, the total amount charged, the date of invoice, HCM!'s business information and the terms of payment.  If you are unavailable to make payment in person, you should please mail your payment to the HCM! Post Office Box listed below.

Please address all mail correspondence to:

"Hey, Computer Man!"
PO Box 304
Tucson, Arizona.  85702-0304.

Please see the Contact Page for more information on how to get in touch with Michael Oatman and HCM!.

You can also use this address to mail in certified cashier's checks or money orders for deferred business billing or prenegotiated structured payments, or to send any other items which must be mailed.  The United States Postal Service (USPS) does deliver to PO Boxes, although neither United Parcel Service (UPS) nor Federal Express (FedEx) typically deliver to PO Boxes.  Therefore, items sent to this Post Office Box should be delivered via USPS (regular mail) and not UPS, FedEx or other various shipping companies.  Should shipping via an alternate carrier become necessary, please contact me for further instructions regarding that purpose.

All payments should be written to be paid to the order of either "Michael Oatman" or "Internet Convenience Store, L.L.C.".  Making payment using any other method(s) than by either certified cashier's checks or money orders is strongly discouraged.

Should you elect to pay by (unsecured) personal or business check, please be sure that the check is written on a local Tucson, Arizona banking institution or credit union.  There will be a $50.00 fee levied on accounts whose checks either are written on a bank not local to Tucson, Arizona, or are returned for any reason whatsoever, plus, any check cashing fees or other fees charged by your banking institution or credit union during the process of obtaining payment from your instrument of payment will be added to your account balance due.  Please have your payment postmarked no later than 10 days from the date of the applicable invoice.  Accounts with a balance due for more than 10 days may face late fees of 5% of the balance due (not to exceed $50.00), and accounts with a balance due for more than 30 days will incur a $50.00 past due fee and may face other various collections actions which are or may be at the disposal of INTERNET CONVENIENCE STORE, L.L.C., at its sole discretion.

Epilogue

Whew...  That was rough.  I'm actually very negotiable; if you have a problem, please let me know.  I will really bend over backwards to make sure that you are satisfied.  The legalese above is there to make sure that I protect my assets, as it were.  I'm sure you know the drill.
