NO DATA / NO COST POLICY
If eProvided.Com is not able to “recover data” from your disks or other devices for any reason after all attempts at recovery have been exhausted, then a written explanation will be provided to you. There is no charge for the attempted data recovery. If, for any reason we are unable to repair effectively a disk drive or any other piece of equipment, an explanation will be supplied when returned and there will be “NO CHARGE” for the corresponding recovery service except the lab fee that might have been quoted in advance. Some devices that undergo advanced recovery may not be returned (once the data has been recovered/delivered to you) this is to protect trade secrets. If we do not return a device, please request us to send back your device in writing.
SECOND ATTEMPT POLICY
eProvided.Com prices are the lowest in the industry. Other data recovery companies use higher quoted pricing schemes. (3 out of 5 client cases we evaluated are 2nd attempts where other companies have failed at recovery). This is a common ploy in the data recovery industry. If you send a drive to us for evaluation that had previously been sent to a competitor, please do disclose this to us.
OTHER VARIOUS POLICIES: HARD DRIVE RECOVERY, USB DATA RECOVERY, ETC, and SALES POLICY
Satisfaction for our clients is important. Sales of new products are warranted by eProvided Data Recovery for at least 90 days unless otherwise stated. Most “New” Hard Disk Drives/Media Devices carry a Factory Warranty that ranges from one year to five years or more. Warranty could become void in cases where products have been modified, opened, or have become defective due to circumstances beyond our control.

STATUS REQUESTS & RUSH SERVICE POLICIES
We do our best to keep costs low, if you need rush services and cut corners and continue to ask for status updates on non-rush orders, rush fees could be applied. This includes services expected or requested surrounding / during holidays on non-rush orders. Check your case status HERE. ‘RUSH’ services do not cover expedited shipping. We reserve the right to keep any materials/devices sent into eProvided if any of the policies on this page are not obeyed. Rush orders are handled as first in – first out. Rush orders are put in front of all non-rush orders. Rush services are handled when we are operating under normal working non-holiday hours. If anyone applies a “rush” on any project, the rush fee will be applied and not refunded whether there is a recovery or not. We reserve the right to add rush fees to any order we feel is being rushed by the sender. If a rush-fee is paid by business or personal check, we do reserve the right to hold all materials until payment has cleared our bank. Do not call for status updates unless you have not heard from us for over one (1) week from last contact or mailing in a device. Example: 1) customer sends in an order, does not place rush on order, 2) customer calls asking for status updates once or more than once, asks if the device arrived, etc. If you want to know if it arrived, please send orders to us via FedEx or UPS etc., and follow tracking through that carrier’s website. We are not responsible for tracking your orders with these carriers. If we add a rush fee and it is not paid, we will not return the order unless the rush fee has been paid as it has been rushed. Please do not ruin this for everyone else. This is our way to keep costs low for You!
