LIMITED NON-COMMERCIAL LICENSE TO USE SITE
The Company hereby grants you the limited right to view and use the Site only for the purposes of accessing and using our career-related services solely for your personal use of creating and revising a resume or profile in digital and other formats. The Company reserves the right to terminate, suspend or deny, in its sole discretion, your access to all or any portion of the Site as described herein in various sections of these Terms. This license is limited to personal and non-commercial uses by you. Any rights not expressly granted to you herein are reserved to the Company. No portion of this Site is targeted to children. Unless you have received specific written permission from the Company, you may not (a) “frame” or otherwise impose editorial comment, commercial material or any information or content on, or in proximity to, content displayed on the Site or (b) alter or modify any content on the Site. Without limiting other restrictions, you agree not to reproduce, transmit, sell, or otherwise exploit the Site for any commercial purpose.
Except as otherwise provided in the Section of these Terms entitled “Limitation of Liability and Exclusive Remedy”: So long as we have not started work on your project, if you provide a written cancellation of your order, via, email, within 7 days of your purchase, we will issue a refund of 100% of your purchase amount. So long as we have not started work on your project, if you provide a written cancellation of your order, via, email, within 8-30 days of purchase, we will provide a refund of 50% of your purchase amount. No refund will be provided after 30 days from date of purchase. Work is deemed to have started when the Company receives the Company’s questionnaire, via the Site form, completed by you or any other materials submitted by you. Once work has started you are not entitled to any refund of your purchase. We have this policy because of the administrative work required to get your project queued, reviewed and scheduled, as well as to account for time lost that could have been working on another project during the time slot reserved for your project.
ACCESS TIME FOR WRITING SERVICE
You are purchasing a specific period of time with your writer assigned to your project (“Access Time”). Writing services provide 30 days of Access Time with you and the writer assigned to you by the Company. It is your responsibility to provide all the required information for the Company to work on your project within the Access Time. Project is defined as the service purchased by you. Your ability to correspond with your writer, including revisions, expirers at the end of your Access Time. No work on your project will occur after the Access Time unless you pay a separate, additional fee to restart time with your writer. The Company must receive the Company’s questionnaire, completed by you, via the Site form, within 30 days from your date of purchase. If we receive the completed questionnaire, via the Site form, 31 – 60 days from your date of purchase, your Access Time to the Company services will have expired; therefore, you will need to pay a reactivation fee of 20% of your purchase amount before we will start work on your project. The Access Time is reset to the day the reactivation fee is paid. If we receive the Company’s completed questionnaire, via the Site form, after 60 days from your date of purchase, no reactivation fee is available, and you are not entitled to any refund from the Company.
Once the Company receives the Company’s questionnaire, completed by you, the Company will make all reasonable efforts to provide your resume, profile, letter or other project within 4 business days. Subsequent revisions, if requested, are intended to be emailed to you or made within LinkedIn within 2 business days of receiving your revision direction via email. You are entitled to a maximum of 3 revisions, during the Access Time, of each service you purchased. A revision is defined as each request you make for a change, regardless of the number of edits included in that request. For example, your directing the writer to change one hundred words or only one word in a request, each such request counts as 1 of your 3 revisions. We review source documents only in Adobe PDF or Microsoft Word. We write documents only in Microsoft Word. We cannot review your edits or write documents in other software, for example Apple Pages or Google Docs. All documents you send to us for editing must be in Microsoft Word format which offers a free one-month trial. Your ability to correspond with your writer expires at the end of the Access Time even if you have not used all your revisions. A business day is considered Monday through Friday, Eastern Time Zone, excluding U.S. federal holidays. The submission of your completed questionnaire begins your timeline toward receiving your project from us and your Access Time. When we receive your completed questionnaire the first business day is the immediately next business day after. For example, if we receive your questionnaire Monday at 10 am, Tuesday is your first business day and you should expect your project no later than Friday, the 4th business day (assuming no federal holidays that week).
The Company only reads and writes in North American English. We do not provide translation into other languages or dialects. It is your responsibility to change any spelling differences between North American English and British English or any other language. If not installed in LinkedIn, your project will be sent to you as a Microsoft Word document. If you do not have Microsoft Word, Microsoft Office 365 offers a free one-month trial or you can view the document in free software programs such as Google Docs. Your writer will install your new personal profile or company page in LinkedIn when you provide your LinkedIn sign in email and password. While the large majority of our customers choose for us to install their profile, if you desire to install the profile yourself, we will provide you with a Word document containing your new LinkedIn profile. It is your responsibility to notify us, in writing, within our online questionnaire form that you do not want the Company to install the profile. By providing us with your LinkedIn sign in email and password, you are authorizing us to access your LinkedIn account to make changes. We strongly recommend you change or reset your LinkedIn password to something new and different from any other password you use.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF USERS
You agree to initiate and actively participate in your project. This process will require you to complete our online questionnaire as well as responding, via email, to questions and reviewing work-in-progress drafts from your writer. You will need to provide your writer with detailed information about your experience, accomplishments and goals as well as industry keywords via our online questionnaire form. You understand that the successful completion of your project is dependent upon your complete and timely submission of your career information and/or objectives. The content that you provide to us in our online questionnaire form must be received in North American English or British English. Purchase of our phone consultation service is intended to allow you to verbally add context, ask questions or ask advice and is in addition to you submitting our completed questionnaire.
