Data privacy is extremely important to us, and we take it very
seriously. When you entrust us with your computer equipment we will
treat your personal data with the care and strict confidentiality you
expect and deserve. Yes, as a company we have the below policies and
procedures in place forbidding anyone from purposely viewing or copying
your personal data and we have systems in place to safeguard your data
while it is in our possession. But let's face it: policies, procedures
and systems only go so far. It is ultimately the honesty, ethical
integrity, and good intentions of the people servicing your computer
that will determine the privacy afforded your personal data when your
computer is being serviced.
That is why Tech Wizards takes such care in selecting the technicians who will be working on your computer equipment. We don't hire very young, inexperienced, untested applicants with no verifiable history of personal integrity. Our technical staff is composed of mature, experienced professionals with a proven track record of responsibility, honesty and ethical trustworthiness. We are proud of the fact that we have a very low turnover rate among our technical staff; most of our technicians have been with us for several years, and most were referred to us by our existing staff. Technicians hired by Tech Wizards are subject to extensive background checks including employer reference checks, criminal history checks, credit checks and drug screens. We also provide a generous compensation plan to our technical staff in order to attract and keep the most professional skilled technicians.
We've been serving highly satisfied North Carolina customers since late 2001 and have achieved a spotless reputation with thousands of satisfied customers. We also have a perfect A+ Better Business Bureau record and highly favorable reviews on Angie's List.
Whether we work on your computer at your location or at one of our off-site repair shops, you can rest assured that we are taking every measure possible to respect the confidentiality of your data and insure that your "private stuff" remains private.
Tech Wizards LLC believes strongly in our ethical responsibility to
protect the confidentiality of its customers' data, information, and
privacy. In addition to regulations, technicians are bound by this
non-disclosure agreement when performing work at a customer's site or at
our repair shops.
