The latter rule also applies if you fail to pay us after we have completed your repair; in such circumstances we reserve the right to withhold your device till we receive payment. If we do not receive funds from you after a month of us notifying you of the completion of service, by such omission you transfer your ownership rights of your device to us. However even in such circumstances, any liability related to unlawfully data on the device and unlawfully procurement of the device, incurred before the date of service agreement was signed, will be yours.
