Terms and Conditions of Service

The most important things to know about our service, in plain English:

Proofreading, Editing and Re-writing services, One-off Content Writing Services, and Other One-off Services

  • When you contact us to request a quotation, we will send your quotation, based on the terms you requested, with an invoice. If you accept the quotation, please pay the invoice (using Paypal or a credit/debit card) and we will begin work. Accepting a quotation shows that you accept our terms and conditions.

  • If you wish to cancel after you have paid, we will refund you for any work we haven’t completed yet, but you will be charged 10% of the total amount paid to cover our administration costs.
    For example:
    Your document is 10,000 words and you pay $150 for this. You decide to cancel, but we have already completed the first 3,000 words (30%). Your refund will be calculated like this:
    $150 – 30% = $105
    Admin fee (10% of $150) = $15
    Total refunded = $90

Content Writing Services – Monthly Subscription

  • An invoice will be sent each month in advance for the agreed recurring amount. Payment of the invoice shows that you accept our terms and conditions. You may cancel at any time and the following refunds will apply:
    Cancellation time Cancellation terms
    Day 1-7 of the month 50% refund for the month
    Day 8-14 of the month 25% refund for the month
    Day 15 onwards No refund

    For example:
    Your billing period runs from the 5th of the month to the 4th of the following month. You decide to cancel on the 18th of the month. This is the 14th day of the billing period, so you will receive a refund of 25% the amount paid for that month.

  • If you are late paying an invoice this may result in a delay to the services you receive that month.

General

  • We will keep all your information confidential.
