Welcome to BusyBench

We are very happy to see you are considering using our software to manage and grow your computer repair business. The below (“Terms”) cover your use and access to our services, client software and websites (“services”) so please take some time to read this document in full as it outlines many of our policies.

What is the BusyBench Service?

Your Generated Content

Many computer shops use our software to upload files, add customers, create invoices, etc. Your generated or stored content, data or files are yours not ours. These terms do not allow BusyBench or any of its affiliates the right to your data, other than limited rights that allow us to provide the service itself. We do not use your customer information for profit or gain. We do not share your customer’s information with other computer shops or our affiliates. Our limited rights to your data allows us to perform regular tasks like backing it up, sharing it when you ask us to and so on. Our software and services also provide many other features that are handled by our affiliates. These affiliates are well trusted third parties that will not copy, share or manipulate your data. Affiliates such as distribution networks and load balancing services allow us to provide a smooth use of the software and services as a whole.
