ESTIMATES AND QUOTES
We provide estimates and quotes on all work, if a sample of the document is provided. An estimate is the approximate amount of time we believe it will take to complete the services required, based on word count and including one complete edit and/or proofread, depending on your requirements. Once we have started editing, if we believe the price will exceed the estimate by more than 25%, we will let you know in advance. If additional requests are made after we have started editing, the price will change accordingly.
Fixed quotes are only available on submission of a document that is no longer being amended and is ready for us to edit or proofread it. Estimates can be upgraded to a quote on receipt of the final version of the document.
Please pay as soon as possible, or by the 20th of the month following invoice date via Paypal or major credit card.
Overdue invoices accrue an additional 5% charge on the balance due, per month.
We normally use emails as the editorial contract between you and us. However, if you would like something more comprehensive, please ask. We have a detailed, formal contract that can be adapted to your needs.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
We provide editing suggestions and advice in good faith and to improve documents according to our experience. We do our best to eliminate as many errors from your document as possible. However, due to the nature of this work, we cannot guarantee perfection, and we are not responsible for omissions or errors in clients' documents. Please check all documents carefully before publication.
If you have any doubts about the content or legality of your document (for example, issues to do with libel, slander, plagiarism, copyright infringement, due credit), we recommend that you raise this with your organization, and/or contact your lawyer for legal advice. We are not responsible for any copyright infringement or related matters.
