This section serves as a guide for 4shared community members to better understand the support services provided by 4shared. The document is limited in scope in that it sets official policy for providing help through the Technical Support Department. Because 4shared is very service minded there are other avenues by which service is provided, e.g., Support Team members eagerly help users even in the evenings and process abuse and copyright reports on weekends.
By setting down these policies and channeling requests for help through the Technical Support Department we hope to provide better service, have an accurate profile of user needs, and demonstrate the appropriate level of staff needed to handle the volume of requests.
This section might change over time as circumstances warrant and therefore it is a work in progress. The Service Level Agreement was prepared by Technical Support Team and reviewed by 4shared Quality Assurance Department. Questions and comments are welcome. Please contact the Director of Technical Support Department or members Support Team.
