CUSTOMER’S RESPONSIBILITY TO BACK-UP DATA

Customer agrees that prior to Geek Squad servicing any Customer equipment it is Customer’s responsibility to (1) back-up the data, software, information or other files stored on Customer’s computer disk drives, peripherals, MP3 player, DVD player, camcorder, digital camera and/or on any other electronic storage device; and (2) remove all videotapes, compact disks, floppy disks, laser disks, cassettes, DVDs, film or other media from Customer’s product.

LIMITATIONS TO SERVICE

Geek Squad shall not be liable for any failure or delay in performance due to any cause beyond its control. Geek Squad and/or its third party service providers reserve the right to refrain from providing the Services ordered and instead refund Customer’s payment, wholly or in part, on the basis that the minimum system requirements are not met or the technical needs (including wiring or overcoming physical or technical barriers) or other requirements of the Customer are unusual or extensive and beyond the scope of these Service Terms, as determined by Geek Squad.


INDEMNIFICATION

Customer agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Geek Squad (and its affiliates and their respective officers, directors, employees and agents) from and against any and all losses, costs, obligations, liabilities, damages, actions, suits, causes of action, claims, demands, liens, encumbrances, security interests, settlements, judgments, and other expenses, (including but not limited to cost of defense, settlement, and reasonable attorneys’ fees) of whatever type or nature, including, but not limited to, damage or destruction to property, injury (including death) to any person or persons, which are asserted against, incurred, imposed upon or suffered by Geek Squad by reason of, or arising from: (a) Customer’s breach of this Agreement; (b) Customer’s actual or alleged infringement of any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or other property or contract right of any other person; (c) Customer’s actual or alleged failure to promptly pay sums due Geek Squad or third parties; (d) Customer’s failure to comply with applicable laws, regulations or ordinances; or (e) the acts or omissions of Customer (or its officers, directors, employees or agents).

LAWS

The Service Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Minnesota, excluding its conflict of law provisions. Customer and Geek Squad agree to submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts in Minneapolis, Minnesota. If any provision of the Service Terms is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, then such provision shall be construed, as nearly as possible, to reflect the intentions of the parties with the other provisions remaining in full force and effect. Customer and Geek Squad agree that any cause of action arising out of or related to this Service must commence within one (1) year after the cause of action arose; otherwise, such cause of action is permanently barred.
