TERMS OF USE OF ARTBEES THEMES SUPPORT

Artbees Themes Support is intended to provide assistance to buyers who encounter issues, but please keep in mind that themes purchased from Themeforest are provided “as-is” with no guarantee of support as per Themeforest Terms and Conditions. We provide the free support in accordance with Themeforest’s rules and regulation about author support.

From March 1st, 2016 all authors are only required to offer customer support for up to 6 months after your purchase date. Thereafter, should the user require any support beyond this allotted time, they will need to renew their support package.

If you need to extend your Support, Item Support extensions can be purchased via the item page on Themeforest.

The critical security fixes and all updates will be available for all users to download regardless of whether they have free support or not.

In order to facilitate the item health and bug fixing process, users without a valid support plan will still be able to report bugs in our public forum.

When using Artbees Themes Support we ask you to be respectful and patient.  We are happy to help, but we expect you to be courteous to our staff.  Any user who is rude, discourteous, uses profane language or is otherwise a nuisance will have their access to Artbees Themes Support removed.  We understand that when things go wrong or you have a query, it is very important to you. However, our staff have a right to work in a pleasant environment and in agreeing to accept our Terms of Use we expect you to behave in a respectful manner.

Disclaimer

Artbees Limited cannot be held responsible or liable for any problems arising from our Support Team’s access to a user’s website in order to check or resolve an issue.

Where you can get support

Support for our clients is provided only through our online support portal. Although we acknowledge discussion through the Themeforest comments section, we still encourage our buyers to go through the support portal for technical issues. We normally use the comments section for presale issues, casual expressions of gratitude for customer appreciation, or any other concerns with no relation to any technical issues that will lead to the issue-resolution process.

This is to bring our customers as well to the right place where they can get our dedicated support assistance. Contacting us through social media, such as Twitter, Facebook, etc., might take much longer to process or may not be addressed at all, so using our online support portal guarantees your queries will be dealt with as soon as possible.

Before asking questions

First, please read the product documentation on knowledge base, even if you are already an experienced user, because there are often important instructions contained in that document. This documentation covers installation instructions, usage and, more often than not, answers any questions you may have. We update the documentation regularly so make sure you have checked them before opening a new ticket.
You are also free to access our video tutorials anytime, as needed.

Lastly, it would be great if you can ensure that you at least have the minimum technical skills required to utilize the file effectively. In general, all files bought or purchased from Envato Marketplace will require some prior knowledge to use them correctly. If you still cannot get the file to work in the way you desire even after exhausting Google’s  “how-tos”, then our dedicated staff can walk you through and point you in the right direction.

What we support

We only cover support for Artbees Themes. This includes getting set up with the theme (we strongly recommend checking the file documentation before opening a support ticket), problems using the theme features, and any bugs or fixes that may appear.

If you require help that is not within this scope, such as on how to use default WordPress functionality itself then we would likely redirect you to external articles or support forums instead. Just to inform you, we cannot provide support for theme modifications or 3rd party plugins that you might use on your theme, complex individual server-side issues, and any other things that are not related to our products directly.

If a theme is not working properly or has an issue, create a new ticket and we will reply within 24 hours (some delays on weekends and holidays may occur). If we determine the issues are caused by user error or are the result of a plugin, we would ask you to retrace your edits or contact the developer of the plugin you’re using. Tickets which need our Dev team’s attention for more detailed inspection, may have to wait for longer (2 – 7  days).

If the ticket is opened up between 8 am to 8 pm (GMT 3+) waiting time would reduce to 5 – 9 hours.

Here at Artbees, we understand that there is a thin line of disparity between what is considered Support and Customization. Although we try to ensure that we accommodate any type of requests, please understand as well that we may not be able to provide extensive help when it comes to modifications. Technical support will take priority over these modification and/or customization support. Customizations are defined as requests related to code and/or style tweaks to suit individual customers’ needs and not related to bugs or problems with an item’s included features. All customization requests will be evaluated on a case by case basis and anything judged to require longer than several minutes to solve, will no longer be entertained or will be redirected. Customization, requiring only a couple of minutes to solve, may be answered by the support representative at their discretion, however this is largely dependent on our Help Desk Support’s workload.

Support hours

We are usually online around the clock!

Please note that while we always strive to answer your questions as soon as humanly possible, sometimes we are not able to do so for whatever reasons and we ask you to be patient during these times.

Support rules

  1. Information you should provide when making a post.
  • Your question or problem.
  • Your WordPress version.
  • Your theme version.
  • Your browser version.
  • Link to your site (It’s much easier to diagnose something when we can see it).
  • If you are developing on a local server, post a screenshot to show the problem.
  • If needed, any additional plugins you’re using besides what was included with the main file.
  • In some cases we may request that you send us login details.
  1. Remember that this is a help desk, and we are here to help you diagnose things that may be wrong with your site, or if there are any bugs in the code. If you ask questions about customization, be aware that we might suggest you to hire someone to help you. We’ll do our best to answer those questions that don’t require major modification and testing, but our priority lies with people having immediate issues with the themes. This goes as well with other themes or plugins, please do not ask us any questions regarding them.
  1. We answer questions as quickly as we can, but remember, we are most probably in a different timezone to you, we have to sleep, rest at the weekend and sometimes take a break like a regular human being. Don’t be rude, vulgar, or use bad language or be disrespectful of anyone. We want to keep this a safe friendly place.
  2. Remember that you can only ask ONE question per ticket and you need to avoid asking multiple questions for one. This is good both for you and us, and will help the agents to concentrate on one question instead of long unrelated back and forth conversations.
