CONDITIONS OF SALE

1. Modification

We reserve the right to change any part of this agreement without notice and your use of the Website will be deemed as acceptance of this agreement. We advise users to regularly check the Terms and Conditions of this agreement. Proof Right has complete discretion to modify or remove any part of this site without warning or liability arising from such action.

By purchasing services from Proof Right you agree to the terms and conditions set forth by this agreement.

2. Limited Warranty

Proof Right aims to reduce the number of errors present in your text document. It is unlikely that it will be possible for us to remove all the errors that may be present in your final document. Our editors are human and, as such, are capable of making human errors. By ordering Proof Right’s services you acknowledge that proofreading is a subjective undertaking and our staff are capable of forming and missing errors.

You accept full responsibility for the use of any version of your proofread document for any purpose (e.g. publishing, submitting, printing etc.). This includes, but is not limited to, any financial, brand and other consequences of those errors.

3. Limitation of Liability

Proof Right will under no circumstance be liable for indirect, special, or consequential damages including any loss of business, revenue, customers, or data in relation to your use of the Website or any material returned by us. Nothing within this Agreement will operate to exclude any liability for death or personal injury arising as a result of the negligence of Proof Right, its staff or agents.

If you are dissatisfied with any Proof Right material, or with any of our terms and conditions, your sole solution is to discontinue using our services. In some circumstances, refunds or partial refunds may be offered but this is at our discretion.

4. Academic Liability

Proof Right acknowledges that academic evaluation of work depends on considerations beyond our control. We cannot be held legally or otherwise responsible for disappointing and/or unsatisfactory outcomes of any factor, including the negligence of editors, staff, or claims of such negligence.

5. Use of the term ‘guarantee’ or ‘guaranteed’

Use of the term ‘guarantee’ or ‘guaranteed’ on this website or in communications with Proof Right refers to our assurances to deliver certain standards of service based on our own internal evaluations. Our ‘guarantee’, should we decide that we have failed to meet these standards, may be the sum of a partial or full refund at our discretion of the original amount paid by the client to engage the service. Not under any circumstances will the refund of monies be in excess of the original fee paid for the service. Refunds and partial refunds are entirely at our discretion.

6. Plagiarism and Copyright Infringement

You must acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to ensure that your work does not breach anti-plagiarism or copyright guidelines.

7. Purchases/Payments

Payment is to be received in full before any work will commence. Your completed work will be returned to you electronically via e-mail; no hard copies will be posted to you. It is your responsibility to ensure that you provide correct contact details so that we can return your work.

8. Order completion times/delivery times of service

We reserve the right to extend order turnaround deadlines if the editor believes that the document in question requires ‘above average’ amendments which will require greater time to complete.

In ordering this service you acknowledge that, in rare instances, an order may be delivered later than the scheduled delivery time (also listed as the “return time” or “turnaround time”). In such circumstances, we may offer partial or full refunds but we accept no responsibility for any damages or losses incurred due to a late delivery of your order. We accept no liability for failure to deliver as estimated but may offer partial or full refunds in such instances at our discretion.

Whilst we fully endeavour to meet our stated turnaround times, in some instances this will not be achieved due to various possible factors such as technical failures or personal issues on the part of the working editor. In such instances we may offer partial or full refunds at our discretion, which represents our ‘guarantee’. We accept no liability for failure to deliver as estimated.

9. Documents may be used for training purposes

We may use your document for training new editors. If you do not wish for your document to be used for training purposes at any point, please specify when placing your order.

10. Refunds

Refunds and partial refunds in certain circumstances may be offered at our discretion.

If you are not entirely satisfied with good reason, contact info@proofright.co.uk and refunds, or partial refunds, may be given when a reasonable reason for disappointment is cited.

We reserve the right to be given an opportunity to address any issues you have raised first before refunds will be given if we see fit.
