4. Description of services
SuperCopyEditors.com provides comprehensive, professional copy editing and proofreading services. Texts are checked for proper grammar as well as effective sentence structure, diction, and flow. We strive to assure that texts are free of common errors such as colloquial language, non-parallel sentence structure, or improper subject-verb agreement.
Note that we do not provide formatting assistance, such as APA formatting from scratch or correct order or formatting of references. By submitting a document to Super Copy Editors, the Customer acknowledges that formatting is not a part of the project.
The Super Copy Editors team seeks to provide complete satisfaction to our Customers. We strive to service all documents to a high and exacting standard. If you are not 100% satisfied with our work, for any reason at all, within three (3) days of receiving it from us, we will have another editor from Super Copy Editors read the document again, for no extra charge.
“If you have any questions or concerns about your edited document, please know that we are always available to discuss these with you. We are happy to explain every decision we have made. If you are still not satisfied with the work of an editor, we will send your document to another editor within our company for a second round of proofing done to your standards, at no extra cost to you.”
The Customer is responsible for reviewing the serviced material upon completion and contacting the Service should any errors be discovered. We are not obligated to refund the cost of the services, or any part of the cost of the services, if a completed document is discovered to be less than perfect. We request that the Customer contact us within three (3) days if not completely satisfied, and we will work to remedy the situation.
“We will complete your project on or before the agreed-upon time, or you do not have to pay us for that project. Note: If your project is large and we split it into milestones (for example, “the first 10 chapters by Monday at 3pm”), you do not have to pay us for any milestone that we did not complete on time.”
Of course, there are some exclusions: technical problems out of our control (see #11 below) and acts of God.
We are not liable for incidental, indirect, consequential, special, punitive, or exemplary damages, including the cost of hiring another editing service, lost revenues or profits, loss of business, or loss of data related to these services.
