Through our Service Technicians, we offer a personal service that we believe can be a valuable resource for helping you to address your technical questions and difficulties. In providing that personal service, we require our Service Technicians to be courteous and respectful, and we expect the same of you.

All third-party software, including Provider Software (collectively, “Third-Party Software”), whether or not required to permit some or all of the Service and whether or not suggested by our Service Technicians, is licensed to you by the respective owners or licensees of the Third-Party Software. You must agree to the terms and conditions set forth by such owners or licensees before installing Third-Party Software, regardless of whether our Service Technicians assist you in the acquisition, installation, and/or use of Third-Party Software, because your use of Third-Party Software is governed by the terms of the end user license agreement between you and such owners or licensees.

Furthermore, please remember that it is your responsibility to comply with the terms and conditions under which you licensed such Third-Party Software.

The applicable prices for the Tech360 service options are available on the respective Service Site (other than separate pricing for on-site technicians). Service options may include One-Time Services, Service Package Subscriptions, and Smart Minute packages. Backup and Go is only available on a Service Package Subscription basis. From time to time we may offer additional service and pricing options, some of which may be offered on a limited-time or trial basis. If any additional service or pricing options become available, your purchase and use of the applicable services will be governed by these Terms.
Unless otherwise expressly stated on the AT&T Tech360 Site, the price you pay for any service option (other than Smart Minutes, Small Office and Enterprise Service Subscription Packages) applies only to a single computer: PC or Mac®, which you must register when you purchase the Service, one tablet, one smartphone, and to connected peripherals and smart/IoT devices. You may purchase service options for additional computers. Unless otherwise expressly stated on the AT&T Tech360 Site, any Service we provide is offered only in connection with the computer or computers you have registered with us. Support for “peripherals” does not include support for smartphones unless otherwise expressly stated. In the event that we offer service options for smartphones, each service (and related pricing) option applies only to a single, registered smartphone.
AT&T Tech360SM One-Time Services
Tech360 One-Time Service purchased must be used on or before the date that is 12 months from the date of purchase. For one-time services (only), you may request additional service at no charge during the five (5) days after an initial remote service appointment for the same problem addressed during the initial service appointment if it recurs, but no such assistance shall be provided without an additional charge after such five (5) day period.
AT&T Tech360SM PC and Mac® Support and Backup and Go Service Package Subscriptions
Tech360 and/or Backup and Go services or service components are purchased on a subscription basis (“Subscription Plans”) that are registered to specific customer computers. Subscription Plans are available to register an individual computer or multiple computers. Tech360 supports the computer or computers registered for the Subscription Plan (a “Registered Computer” or “Seat”). Each Registered Computer or Seat under a Subscription Plan provides support for a single (1) PC or Mac computer and, additionally, one (1) smartphone and one (1) tablet.
Subscription Plans for individual registered computers may be charged monthly. Certain Subscription Plans for multiple registered computers may require a minimum subscription term of one (1) year. For Subscription Plans that require a minimum one-year term, unless you cancel at the expiration of the one-year term (by providing AT&T prior written notice), the Subscription Plan and the Service will renew automatically on a month-to-month basis. The rates and prices that apply during any month-to-month renewal period will be the rates and prices in effect upon the expiration of your subscription term. AT&T may change such prices, terms or conditions on 30 days’ prior notice to Customer.
Billing for the Service commences when you initially order the Service. Ongoing monthly fees and charges will be charged to the credit card, AT&T account or invoice (or other billing method you agree to) approximately one month in advance. If you terminate a Service Package Subscription that requires a 12-month minimum commitment before the 12-month minimum commitment expires, AT&T may charge you an early termination fee equal to 50% of the monthly recurring rate for the terminated Service Package multiplied by the months remaining in the term. After the 12-month minimum commitment period, billing will continue on a monthly basis until the Service Package Subscription is cancelled.
AT&T Tech360SM Smart Minute Packages
AT&T Tech360SM Smart Minutes are pre-paid minutes allocated in 15-minute increments. For any purchase of Smart Minutes, you will be charged in advance for the full cost of the number of 15-minute increment(s) you purchase, and that full cost will become non-refundable once you have used any of your Smart Minutes. Your Smart Minutes can be used any time during the 365 day period following the date of purchase and expire at the end of such 365-day period. Minutes are used in 15-minute increments with a minimum service appointment length of 15 minutes; any unused portion of a 15-minute increment will expire automatically after a service appointment and will not be carried over.
Additional Future Service Options
We may offer additional or different service options (including pricing options) in the future. If we do, the details of those service options, including their stated pricing, payment and durational terms, will automatically be incorporated into these Terms without the need for any action on your or our part, and those service options will be governed by these Terms. For example, we may offer a pre-paid support service for smartphones.
General Charges and Fees
Charges for the Service may include subscription plan charges, activation fees, hourly charges, Smart Minutes, minimum service fees, no-show fees, failure to cancel fees, early termination fees, set-up fees and other non-recurring charges, and all applicable taxes. Upon request, AT&T can provide you a statement itemizing the services and fees that correspond to the charges billed to your account.
You must notify AT&T in writing if you intend to discontinue the Service or change the credit card or AT&T account to which your Service charges are billed. AT&T is not responsible for any fees or charges that you may incur as a result of charges posted to a closed credit card account or a discontinued credit card account number. Please note that AT&T does not accept debit cards for payment of any charge or fee in connection with the Service.
You agree and authorize AT&T or its agent to charge the credit card, AT&T account or invoice you (or use other billing methods you agree to) for all fees and charges associated with the Service, and you agree to pay the applicable credit card, AT&T account or other billing method charges. You authorize AT&T or its agent to continue charging your credit card (or any replacement credit card if the original card is renewed, lost, stolen or changed for any reason by the credit-issuing entity, and AT&T is informed by such entity or you of a replacement account), AT&T account or other billing method for all fees and charges associated with your use of the Service.
AT&T reserves the right to decline to accept a credit card or AT&T wireless or local telephone account or other AT&T account you have provided, and may either request a different credit card (or different AT&T account) for billing, or decline to complete your order. Service to you may be denied, suspended or discontinued without notice at any time if your credit card, wireless or local phone account, or other AT&T account is suspended, put on hold, or becomes inactive, or if the date on your credit card expires and you have not provided us with updated information for an active account prior to such expiration, or if your credit card provider denies or discontinues providing payment to us, or if you otherwise fail to make payment to us when due.
AT&T may, at any time, with advance notice by email or other means of communication, change the amount of or basis for determining any fee or charge or institute new fees or charges for the Service. If fees are charged on an hourly basis, any estimate given to you of the required service time is an estimate only and not a cap on the fees that will be actually incurred. All fees and charges are payable in accordance with pricing and billing terms in effect at the time the fee or charge becomes payable. All amounts are stated and payable in U.S. Dollars.
If any portion of your bill is not paid by the due date, AT&T may charge you a late fee on unpaid balances and may also terminate or suspend your Service without notice. The late fee will be the lesser of one and one half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate permitted by law. In the event AT&T utilizes a collection agency or resorts to legal action to recover monies due, you agree to reimburse us for all expenses incurred to recover such monies, including attorneys’ fees. AT&T reserves the right to charge service fees and other charges to a customer’s credit card or phone account, as applicable, up to eight (8) weeks after the end of the calendar month in which the corresponding service was concluded or the corresponding charge was incurred.
Additional Terms Related to AT&T Tech360SM Backup and Go
The following terms apply if you subscribe for Backup and Go:
Your Computer Files
Backup and Go enables you to back up your computer files from a single personal computer (excluding files from external and/or network storage drives attached to or mapped to the computer) on our Backup and Go servers, to access or revise your files from a web-enabled mobile telephone or web browser, and to share your files with other Backup and Go users. All such files, as originally uploaded or as subsequently revised, and all other computer files that may otherwise become associated with your account (other than another subscriber’s Files to which you are granted access or collaboration privileges), are referred to herein as your “Files”. Please note that only a single copy of your Files will be maintained and accessible using the Backup and Go Service. Please also note that a subscriber who grants you access or collaboration privileges to such subscriber’s Files shall retain control over such Files, including the ability to specify or change the subscribers that have access or collaboration privileges with respect to such Files at any given point in time.
You represent and warrant that you have all necessary rights to all Files you upload to AT&T servers. You grant AT&T and its third-party service providers a limited, perpetual, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, copy, display, and modify the format of such Files for the sole purpose of providing to you the Service for which you have registered. You continue to retain all ownership rights in any Files you provide; AT&T does not claim any ownership rights in any of your Files.
You are solely responsible for your use of Backup and Go, and all Files that you upload, post, email, transmit, or otherwise disseminate using the Backup and Go Service. You are solely responsible for obtaining any person’s consent as necessary to store or access any Files that contain personal information concerning such person.
All file transfers between your computer and the Backup and Go server are performed using an encrypted transport connection and all data on our servers are also encrypted upon storage for additional protection. However, AT&T and its third-party service providers do not guarantee the security of the Files against loss or disclosure.
If you have designated a person (whether by email, by registering such person with AT&T, by granting such person access to your username and password, or in any other fashion) to have access to your Files, you hereby authorize AT&T to give such designated person access to your Files, including without limitation in the event of your death or incapacity
AT&T reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to make changes to the Backup and Go servers, including upgrading, replacing or relocating. To facilitate such changes, you may be required to download and install new software and re-initiate backup from your computer(s) to the new, upgraded or relocated servers, or take some other action. AT&T will notify you and provide instructions if any action is required of you. YOUR FAILURE TO FULLY COMPLY WITH SUCH INSTRUCTIONS IS AT YOUR SOLE RISK AND MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF YOUR DATA OR OTHER ADVERSE CONSEQUENCES.
Treatment of Files upon Termination
If a subscription is terminated upon its expiration or upon notice from you, your account is current, and you are not in violation of these Terms, AT&T will make reasonable efforts (but shall not be obligated to) retain your Files for a short period of time after termination, during which time a copy of such Files may be forwarded to you in exchange for an administrative fee. Please remember, though, that AT&T and its third-party service providers shall have no obligation to maintain any data stored in your account after termination or to forward any data after termination to you or any other person or entity.
Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. §§ 512(b)–(d), a copyright holder may send AT&T a valid notification of claimed copyright infringement under the DMCA. For further information regarding such notifications, see https://www.att.com/legal/terms.dmca.html. AT&T’s designated agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement as described in DMCA subsection 512(c)(3) is:
Manager of Security & Copyright Infringement
1800 Perimeter Park Drive, Suite 100
Morrisville, NC 27560
Due to the substantial volume of notifications of claimed infringement that AT&T receives and processes, we are unable to accept notices of alleged copyright infringement via this designated agent or email address other than notifications of claimed infringement sent pursuant to Sections 512(b)–(d).
AT&T also provides transitory digital network communications services, pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(a). In connection with such services, AT&T provides an online form that copyright holders should use to send notifications related to alleged copyright infringement by its users based on the standards of the Automated Copyright Notice System (ANCS). Copyright holders should use this online form to submit complaints related to alleged peer-to-peer file sharing (i.e. sharing media files via peer-to-peer networking technology), or other forms of copyright notice other than those sent pursuant to Sections 512(b)–(d) of the DMCA (“ISP Conduit Notices”). By submitting complaints using this online form, we are able to more efficiently manage and process ISP Conduit Notices. Copyright holders can access AT&T’s online form at att.com/p2pnotices. Please note that copyright holders must complete all fields in the online form before submitting.
AT&T or its service provider reserve the right to delete any Files posted, stored, or transmitted, if it is believed that such Files contain infringing material. Moreover, AT&T will terminate the Backup and Go account of any subscriber that is determined under AT&T’s policies or practices to be a repeat infringer.
Fair Use Policy
Backup and Go is primarily designed to serve the needs of individual consumers and small businesses, and a Backup and Go subscription is intended for use by a single personal computer (excluding external and/or network storage drives), and you must purchase additional subscriptions if you wish to utilize your Backup and Go account for additional personal computers. If AT&T or its third party service provider determines that data from external and/or network storage drives are being backed up, our backup and go software may also automatically discontinue such backup of data from the external and/or network storage drives and purge such backed up data from our servers. Also, if your actual usage of Backup and Go is not consistent with the intended use, as determined by AT&T, AT&T may terminate your account on thirty (30) calendar day's notice, in which case, in AT&T’s discretion, AT&T may refund, on a prorated basis, any unearned fees you have paid for the Backup and Go service.

You understand and agree that any software that you acquire and install as part of a Service Package subscription plan may cease to operate, update or function properly after termination of the subscription plan, and that your rights to use such software pursuant to the applicable end user license agreement may cease or become limited after such termination.
Termination of Smart Minutes
You may terminate a fully unused Smart Minute package at any time for a full refund.

Choice of Law; Jurisdiction
These Terms and the relationship between you and AT&T will be governed by the laws of the State of Texas, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts located in Texas, and waive any objections thereto. You further agree that any dispute arising from or related to your use of the Service must be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Dallas County, Texas, unless a Texas mandatory venue statute applies to the dispute, in which case the Texas county of mandatory venue shall be the exclusive jurisdiction for such dispute.
- AT&T and you agree to exercise best efforts to resolve all disputes and claims between us through good faith negotiation. AT&T and you further agree that any such dispute or claim that cannot be resolved by negotiations shall be resolved by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (‘‘AAA’’) under its Commercial Arbitration Rules in effect at the time the dispute is submitted for resolution (the ‘‘Rules’’), as may be modified by this Agreement. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted.
- Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court having proper jurisdiction. Such arbitration shall be held in the State in which the Services are billed. In the event you are billed by AT&T for Services in of multiple states, such arbitration shall be held in State in which of your primary business. Within twenty (20) days of the issuance of a written notice to arbitrate by one party to the other, as provided by the Rules, the parties shall jointly select one (1) independent arbitrator licensed to practice law. If we cannot jointly agree on an arbitrator within the specified 20-day period, then the selection shall promptly be made by the AAA in accordance with the Rules and the criteria set forth above.
- The Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §1, et seq., governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision.
- In no event shall the arbitrator have the authority to make any award that is in excess of, or contrary to, what this Agreement provides. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action small claims court.
- The arbitrator may award injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim; furthermore, unless you and AT&T agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or collective proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the arbitration provision shall be null and void.
- YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, YOU AND AT&T ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. AT&T AND YOU AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING.
These Terms, and any other policies or guidelines referenced herein, constitute the entire agreement between AT&T and you in connection with the Service. These Terms supersede any prior or contemporaneous written or oral communications, proposals, representations and agreements between you and AT&T with respect to the subject matter of these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of these Terms shall remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the Service, your account with respect to the Service, or these Terms must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred (unless such limitation is contrary to the public policy of a particular state, in which case the applicable limitations period shall be the shortest limitation period permissible under that state’s law). The failure of AT&T to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms will not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If you violate any of these Terms, AT&T may in its sole discretion terminate or suspend your access and use of the Service immediately without notice. You agree that AT&T shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any termination of your access to the Service.
