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 Cambridge Proofreader 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.
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.
Refunds and partial refunds in certain circumstances may be offered at our discretion.
If you are not entirely satisfied with good reason, send an email to email@example.com 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.
