1. Introduction

The following technical support services guidelines ("Guidelines") apply to support services for the Playengo terms of service or any specific Playengo agreement entered into by and between Awesome Gapps and Customer (as may be applicable, the "Agreement"). Playengo Technical Support Services are collectively referred to in these Guidelines as "Playengo Services." Capitalized terms not defined herein have the meaning set forth in the Agreement.

2. Support Request Submission

  • (a) General. Customer may submit Requests by email to support@playengo.com, or through the Playengo support portal when available.
  • (b) Customer Efforts to Fix Errors. Prior to making a Request to Awesome Gapps, Customer will use reasonable efforts to fix any error, bug, malfunction, player hardware or operating system issue, or network connectivity defect without escalation to Awesome Gapps. Thereafter, a Customer Contact may submit a written request for technical support through the Playengo support portal when provided by Awesome Gapps, or by email.
  • (c) Characterization of Requests. Customers designate priority upon submission of Requests. Upon receiving a request from Customer Contact, Awesome Gapps will determine whether the request is a "Service Unusable," "Standard Request" or a "Feature Request" (as defined in Section 8). Any such determination made by Awesome Gapps is final and binding on Customer. Awesome Gapps reserves the right to change Customer's Priority designation if Awesome Gapps believes that Customer's designation is incorrect and will inform Customer of any such change in its response to the support Request. Customer may appeal any such reclassification to Awesome Gapps's Support management for review through any available support channel.

When making a Request, Customer will provide requested diagnostic information including but not limited to: (i) describing the problem, the configuration, and Customer's network; (ii) providing relevant data; and (iii) communicating further via email or phone to answer questions and assist Playengo Support Personnel as appropriate.
  • (e) Request Acknowledgement. Awesome Gapps may respond to a Request by acknowledging receipt of the Request. Customer acknowledges and understands that Awesome Gapps may be unable to provide answers to, or resolve all, Requests.
  • (f) Feature Requests. If Awesome Gapps deems a Request as a Feature Request, Awesome Gapps will redirect the customer to log such Request for consideration to add to a future update or release of the Services and will consider the matter closed.
