I (Client) agree to pay Dragon Technology Services, LLC (DTS) to repair, analyze and troubleshoot my computer hardware at the current half hour rate (minimum) for remote tech support. Time will be billed to the nearest ¼ hour.
Payment is due prior to the remote support.

Although DTS will endeavor to conduct all activities in a timely manner, I understand that troubleshooting issues may be a time-consuming process and agree to pay DTS for troubleshooting time as necessary.
If DTS is requested to conduct further research on a specific issue, Client will not be billed for research time off-site, but will be billed for research time while at Client’s site/computer.
DTS reserves the right to recommend another IT company if the troubleshooting requires the assistance of another IT company to assist. Client will contract with the other IT company separately.
DTS will install any free programs that you grant permission/ask us to install, while we always try to do our best with the installations, some free programs do not work on all computer systems.
