Do you own the computers or work for a company that does? If you do not own the computers, then and acceptable use policy is not what you want. An acceptable use policy basically tells people what they are allowed to do with their computers, and I dunno about you but I'll be damned if somebody else is going to tell me what to do with my hardware. You want a waiver, basically stating you are not responsible for data loss, or viruses etc. incurred from doing things with the pc. Acceptable use policies are generally only used by schools, big companies that own the hardware and allow their employee's / the public to use them.

yes thats exactly what i was after - i thought it was called a Acceptable Use Policy and that it also states things you can't do (illegal things) on the PC
and that you have explained all this and understand it and they sign here ________ they can choose to break these rules but it just basically means your not held liable for it, because they are fully aware of what the are doing

and if they get into trouble with the law for it and bring you into this, you can just show em the waiver and your free to go, because they are responsible not you that's what i thought a acceptable user policy was

ok so i change my question:

can anyone help me design a waiver for these kind of situations
in a formal way

1. By using this computer, you agree to the following:
-You will not download warez
-You will not blame me, the Admin, for any problems arising from warez
-You will not benchmark your computer
-You will not try to upgrade it on your own without contacting me first
-You will not install an OS that is illegit
-You will regularly clean your own dust out
-You shall not rummage in thy control panel, or delete thine system 32 folder
-You agree never to use IE again, and instead use one of the better browsers installed. I reccomend FireFox, but I've installed many to choose from.
-You will not complain about the price when i have to fix something YOU borked
-You will not install every toolbar. As a matter of fact, don't install any toolbars, emoticon packs or screensavers. if you want one, call me, I will install safe ones for you. No toolbars.
-If you bring the computer in for service and i find Limewire, I will remove it. It is a virus portal.


2. Breaking this agreement means you forfeit any warranties, and data if i have to recover you from an illegal OS install.

if I bring my pc somewhere for repair and they make me sign that, ill punch them in the face.

when I bought my car, or had it repaired, nobody made me sign a waiver saying I will not go insane and run down people with it, I will not speed, bla bla bla..

at some point in time, we grow up and become adults.. part of that is becoming aware of whats right and wrong and taking responsibility for that..

if I go off and get a speeding ticket.. I cant sue the salesman cuz he didnt tell me not to speed..

Either way, I have my clientel sign a form of sorts as well.. its a pickup and dropoff form. it basically states what condition the ocmputer is in upon arrival, and the machine specs, and the states the condition and specs upon leaving. By signing that, they agree they are aware the computer did not acquire any damage during my stay, and if it did, that arrangements to repair/replace were made and accepted.

something along those lines is all that is needed, and even then.. not many people do it.

You should make a policy that says if their computer explodes that you are not liable. Jk! But anywayz, you should include that searching through pornsites is risky and messing with the bios settings or hardware may result in malfunction. You should also say that if they got a new virus because they were looking at porn sited or gambling sites, you are not responsible. Also you should list some certain tips like saying that you should do regular virus scans and stuff to maintain a healthy pc! then make them sign it. But if they did something illegal, I don't think you could get in trouble for it. If you could or are worried about it, also include a part that says illegal activities and illegal downloading or cybercrimes are not advised, and the technician is not held accountable for such actions in any way!

don't you remember studying for your Drivers License ? and taking a test to get it

right there is when they explain what you can and can not do
speeding, drinking and driving blah blah blah

in order to drive the car you purchased you need to have a license

that's why they don't explain not to speed, you should already know from the doing the Test/studying for it that's why you get punished for disobeying by getting a ticket / losing points

so that was a bad example
but i do see where you are coming from, but the point is i am trying to be professional about fixing PCs i don't give a crap if they do illegal things with a PC i just want them to sign a wavier that they understand what they are doing on the PC / know the laws and so on that makes me not responsible because i explained it to them if they go and break it any way it doesn't matter, i wont be watching them 24/7 its just a bit of paper thats it

nothing to get all angry about - you have to sign things like that all the time, like when you go to a post office and send a package you have to sign a thing that says your not sending a letter bomb (dangerous goods)
you can go ahead and do it anyway, but the point is the paper has been signed making the post office not responsible if people do it anyway
