You must agree to allow access to your computer to enable the Expert to provide you Expert Services. If you do not, the Expert will not be able to provide you with the Expert Service in question.
SNAP REMEDY confirms that the Sharing Software will not install or copy any files, programs or otherwise either to or from the desktop without explicit permission from the Customer. All programs and tools used by Experts will be run through the Experts’ access, unless such installation has been requested as a part of SNAP REMEDY services. THE SHARING SOFTWARE (NOR ANY OTHER SOFTWARE USED IN CONNECTION WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF SNAP REMEDY SERVICES) IS NOT SPYWARE, ADWARE, OR MALWARE.
