Legal Agreement


This Service Agreement (“Agreement”) is posted on the website and governs the provision of computer maintenance and support services (“Services”) by Tyler’s Computers (“Service Provider”) to the client (“Client”). By accessing or using the Services, the Client agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement.


General Scope and Limitations: The Service Provider’s responsibilities are strictly defined by the specific terms outlined for each customer category within this Agreement. Legacy and AlaCarte Customers are not provided with routine maintenance or support services by default. Services, tasks, or support requests that are not explicitly detailed within this Agreement’s scope of services are considered out-of-scope. The Service Provider reserves the right to reject any requests for out-of-scope assistance. If such requests are accepted, they will be billed on an hourly basis at the Service Provider’s standard rates for out-of-scope services.

Legacy Customers: Legacy Customers will be provided with all work at an hourly rate. This includes any required labor and software, which will be supplied at a markup. Communication, including phone calls and emails, will be counted toward billable hours.

AlaCarte Customers: AlaCarte Customers may select up to two specific services per month. Should an AlaCarte Customer require a third service within the same month, this plan will be voided. All services, including labor and software, will be billed at an hourly rate, with software provided at a markup. Phone calls and emails will be considered billable hours.

Retainer Customers: Retainer Customers are provided with basic routine maintenance, which includes Remote Monitoring and Management, Windows Patching, Select 3rd Party Software Patching, Anti-Virus, Centralized Log Collection, and a Remote Control Tool. Additionally, Retainer Customers will receive support for trouble tickets, with up to one hour of service per month for each kiosk, workstation, server, server container, and user. These hours are specific to each device or user and do not accumulate. Support is focused on non-functional and broken system states or issues with supported software only. Services beyond these parameters will be billed at an hourly rate. System changes will be quoted and billed as separate projects.

Managed Service Customers: Managed Service Customers will receive unlimited support for trouble tickets and basic routine maintenance, which includes Remote Monitoring and Management, Windows Patching, Select 3rd Party Software Patching, Anti-Virus, Centralized Log Collection, and a Remote Control Tool. Support covers non-functional systems, broken system states, or functionality issues related only to supported software for all managed and unmanaged network devices, workstations, and users. System changes will be scoped and billed as projects. User training is necessary but is not the responsibility of the Service Provider and considered out of scope. Brief training advice will be provided at no cost during software transitions or on an as-needed basis. If a user requires extensive training or frequently submits trouble tickets due to a lack of self-training, the customer will be notified, and further support may be billed at the hourly rate associated with project work. Customers are encouraged to use free training resources when available.


Designation of Authorized Client Contact:

The Client shall designate an individual who will act as the primary authorized contact for all matters pertaining to this Agreement. This individual will hold the authority to make decisions and approve changes on behalf of the Client, including but not limited to, billing inquiries, change management, authorizations, and receipt of notifications.

Authority of Client Communication:

Any communication from the Client to the Service Provider that originates from the designated authorized contact will be considered as having full authority to request services, support, or changes. The Service Provider will act upon such communications under the assumption that the designated contact has the requisite consent and authority from the Client to initiate and approve the actions requested. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that the authorized contact understands the scope of their authority and the implications of requests made to the Service Provider.


Kiosk/POS Device: A kiosk is a dedicated device for specific functions like ticket sales or self-service ordering, typically used by the public or internally within an organization.

Workstation: A laptop or desktop computer used for common tasks such as browsing the internet, creating documents, managing emails, and conducting training.

Server: Any computer or system acting as a server, including those providing data, hosting applications, or fulfilling network roles. Each virtual machine or host is counted as a separate server.

Server Containers: Services running in a containerized environment on a server, such as those using Docker or Kubernetes technologies.

Printer: Devices including standard document printers and specialized units like label or receipt printers.

Network (Per VLAN/Subnet): Each VLAN or subnet is considered a separate entity within the organization’s network, reflecting the complexity and scale of different network segments.

Network Device: Components such as Access Points, Switches, Routers, and other devices integral to network communication or infrastructure management, including security cameras, access control, and PA systems.

Unmanaged Network Device: Devices like VOIP phones, Camera NVRs, Smart TVs, etc., that are statically connected to the network and may need occasional support but are not actively managed.

User Standard: For individuals with an assigned on-site workstation and access to 3CX communication services.

User Premium: For individuals with a workstation that can be used off-site and who may utilize 3CX communication services.


The Service Provider’s support for mobile devices is limited to management via Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions. Support for third-party software not procured through or managed by Tyler’s Computers is not included. However, should Tyler’s Computers grant approval, the Service Provider may assist with integrating approved third-party software with the Client’s systems and equipment. It is important to note that the Service Provider assumes no responsibility for any issues stemming from the third-party software itself. Support for such software will necessitate a separate agreement and will incur additional fees.

Any services rendered by the Service Provider that fall outside the terms of this Agreement are provided without warranty. The Service Provider shall not be held liable for any complications or issues that may arise from performing such out-of-scope work.
