Disclaimer
Your use of the Site is at your sole risk. The Site is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. The Site and services provided through the website are provided without warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including, but not limited to, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement or course of performance.

PaperBlazer, its subsidiaries, affiliates, and its licensors do not warrant that a) the Site will function uninterrupted, secure or available at any particular time or location; b) any errors or defects will be corrected; c) the Site is free of viruses or other harmful components; or d) the results of using the Site will meet your requirements.

PaperBlazer reserves the right to cancel orders that meet any of the following qualifications: (1) the document is deemed incomprehensible and unable to be corrected;  (2) the document includes hate speech or expresses content that might be dangerous to the public; (3) the document includes explicit, adult content that is deemed offensive; (4) the client is a student of an editor or attends the editor’s university; or (5) the document appears, according to our judgment, to be an exam or test of any kind.

Deadlines and Refunds

Full refunds can be granted prior to the start of editing and must be requested in writing via email.

In the case of a service delay (i.e., if services are delivered after the expected 12, 24, or 72 hour deadline), partial refunds can be granted. The refund amount will prorated, according to the next level of service. (For example, a 3-hour delay for a 12-hour order will result in a 3-hour discount at the 24-hour rate; likewise, a 5-hour delay on a 24-hour order will result in a 5-hour discount at the 72-hour rate.) Alternatively, instead of a prorated refund, a 10% discount can be applied toward a future order.

Under no condition do we provide refunds due to a bad grade or poor job performance.  Grades and performance depend on many factors (e.g., content quality, direction following, overall effort, etc.) that are the author’s responsibility and beyond the control of PaperBlazer.

In a case of editing error, refunds may be granted on a case-by-case and pro-rated basis. The editing error will be divided by the total number of edits. (For example, if 1 error was made, but 100 corrections were made, then the refund would be 1%; if 2 errors were made, but 100 corrections were made, then the refund would be 2%.)

Extreme cases (e.g., an ESL document laden with translation or basic errors) may require more than the stated time.  With such a document, the Client will be asked what they prefer: if he/she would like to receive corrections after the deadline or if he/she would like a refund for what has not yet been proofread/edited.

Deadlines do not necessarily include major U.S. holidays.  While we do try to work around and through holidays, it is the customer’s responsibility to verify if orders will be delivered on a holiday.

Governing Law
This Agreement (and any further rules, polices, or guidelines incorporated by reference) shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Illinois, United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of law.
