If you exercise your right of cancellation after a service has been provided, including but not limited to onsite and workshop repairs, you will be refunded less the amount equal to the cost of work and services provided up until the time of cancellation.

20. Payment of Accounts
A deposit is required from any new client before any work is carried out. It is the policy of Alfreton Computers that any outstanding accounts for work carried out by Alfreton Computers or its affiliates are required to be paid in full, no later than 28 days from the date of the invoice unless by prior arrangement with Alfreton Computers.
Once a deposit is paid and work completed you are obliged to pay the balance of payment in full. We will contact clients via email and telephone to remind them of such payments if they are not received when due.
If accounts are not settled or Alfreton Computers have not been contacted regarding the delay, access to the related website may be denied and web pages removed, we will then pass such cases to the Small Claims Court to pursue payment, non payment can result in County Court Judgments (CCJ’s) being added to the clients’ credit rating.
Following consistent non payment of an invoice, our Solicitors will contact the client in question, with a view to taking the matter further and if need be to seek payment through legal procedures, and if necessary court summons.
