Welcome! We developed our company on the idea that we manage the technology that a growing company uses each day. This Terms of Service document describes the level of service that you, ‘the customer’ will receive from CCB Tech Group (CCB).
We have tried to draft our Terms of Service to be readable for people just like us. Unfortunately, the realities of the legal world make that a very difficult task. So, should you have any questions or concerns or would simply like to better understand how we do things at CCB, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We have divided the document into sections, but there are important details in the whole document, so you should read it.
The purpose of this document is to formalize a service arrangement that allows CCB to deliver equipment and services with different levels of support. This Terms of Service sets out our level of availability and support the customer can expect to receive for their IT system and is the legal terms of the contract between the customer and CCB. It aims to enable the two parties to work together effectively. Hereinafter this document will be referred to as the "Agreement". By accepting delivery of our equipment or services you agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement.
Terms of Service Review and Duration
This Agreement will be in effect for as long as CCB services or equipment are provided to the customer and may be revised if there are significant changes to the customer’s IT system, hours of operation, or additional locations.
Scope of Services
CCB provides an efficient, cost-contained approach to IT support for small and medium businesses, and may deploy these services either through a break-fix relationship or “Secure Points” (our complete Managed Services offering which allows for layered security and device management for one economical monthly fee).
Roles and Responsibilities

CCB will conduct business in a courteous and professional manner with the Customer.
CCB will use its help desk to provide support, including creating tickets, quotes and assigning responsibility to the appropriate resource.
Once a support request has been submitted, CCB will make itself available to work with the Customer.
CCB will attempt to resolve problems over the phone on first call.
CCB will obtain the Customer’s approval before ticket closure.
CCB will recycle old equipment unless Customer requests equipment return within 30 days from date of invoiced replacement equipment. This could result in loss of data on the old system unless you request us to provide you with the storage media before recycling. You may also request for us to destroy the media and provide you with an official certificate of proof for a small fee.
The Customer has the following general responsibilities under this agreement:
The Customer will conduct business in a courteous and professional manner with CCB staff members.
The Customer will provide all information required to open a support request.
The Customer will log all information required to establish contact information, document the nature of the problem and the hardware/network environment (as applicable).

Advanced scheduling is required for specific customer needs (i.e., new server installs, etc.)
Calls and emails received after normal business hours will be returned the following business day. The only exception to this would be those customers who have contracted CCB for an Emergency Service plan
such as the Managed Service Plan that includes the After-Hours support.

Requests for support will be fulfilled based on priorities (Emergency, High, and Scheduled) which are determined by urgency and level of impact. Response is defined as a “good faith” effort to communicate with the customer using the contact information provided by that customer. Response may be via phone or voice mail, e-mail, or personal visit.
