We reserve the right to change any part of these Terms and Conditions without notice, and your use of this Website will be deemed to constitute your acceptance of the revised Terms and Conditions.

- Limited Warranty
CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC’s aim is to reduce the number of errors present in your text document. While we take reasonable measures to ensure the quality of our work, it is unlikely that it will be possible for us to remove all of the errors that may be present in your document. Our editors are human and therefore subject to human error. By ordering CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC’s services, you acknowledge that proofreading is a subjective undertaking and that our staff are capable of both forming and overlooking errors. You accept sole responsibility for the use of any version of your proofread document for any purpose (e.g., publishing, submission, or printing). This includes, but is not limited to, any financial, brand, and other consequences of any such errors.
- Limitation of Liability
In no circumstances will CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC be liable for any indirect, special, or consequential damages, including any loss of business, revenue, customers, or data, in relation to your use of this Website or any material returned by us. Nothing within these Terms and Conditions will operate to exclude any liability for death or personal injury arising as a result of the negligence of CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC, its staff or agents. If you are dissatisfied with any CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC material, or with any of these Terms and Conditions, your sole remedy is to discontinue using our services. In some circumstances, refunds or partial refunds may be offered, but any such remedy is at our sole discretion.
- Academic Liability
CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC acknowledges that academic evaluation of work depends on considerations beyond our control. We cannot be held legally or otherwise responsible for any disappointing or unsatisfactory outcomes, howsoever arising, including as a result of the negligence or alleged negligence of our editors or staff.
- Use of the Term “Guarantee” or “Guaranteed”
Use of the term “guarantee” or “guaranteed” on this website or in communications with CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC refers to our undertaking to deliver certain standards of service based on our own internal evaluations. Our “guarantee”, should we determine that we have failed to meet these standards, may be a sum equivalent to a partial or full refund, at our sole discretion, of the original amount paid by the client to engage the service. In no circumstances will the refund of monies exceed the original fee paid for the service. Refunds and partial refunds remain at our sole discretion.
- Plagiarism and Copyright Infringement
It is your sole responsibility to ensure that the documents supplied to CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC for editing are free from plagiarism and do not infringe any copyright, trademark, patent, proprietary right of any third party or of any other kind. If CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC identifies potentially plagiarised material in the documents submitted for editing, it reserves the right to refuse services and to cancel any existing orders. CAMBRIDGE PROOFREADING LLC shall assume no liability for any claims made against you for plagiarism or infringement of copyright, trademark, patent, or any other proprietary rights of any third party or of any other kind.
Payment is to be received in full before any work will commence. Your completed work will be returned to you electronically via email; 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. Your order will be returned as a secure link. Should we encounter any difficulties in the course of completing the order that require us to return the files to you by email, we reserve the right to do so and accept no liability for any adverse consequences or damages arising from this means of return.
- Order Completion Times/Delivery Times
We reserve the right to extend the order deadline if the editor believes that the document in question requires an “above average” number of amendments, which will require additional time to complete. While we make every effort to meet our stated turnaround times, in some instances, circumstances beyond our control may make it impossible to do so. Such circumstances include technical failures or unexpected changes in the personal circumstances of the responsible editor. In ordering this service, you acknowledge that, in rare cases, 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 a partial or full refund, at our sole discretion, which represents our “guarantee”, but we accept no responsibility for any damages or losses incurred due to any such late delivery.
Refunds and partial refunds may be offered, at our discretion, in certain circumstances.
If you are not entirely satisfied and can cite reasonable justifications, contact [email protected] detailing your complaint. A full or partial refund may be agreed upon, provided you can supply valid reasons for dissatisfaction with the service you have received. We reserve the right to take action to address any concerns you may raise before offering to provide a refund. Any decisions as to the nature or extent of such corrective actions or refunds remain at our sole discretion.
Complaints must be submitted within 21 days of us returning the edited files. Complaints submitted at a later date cannot be evaluated by our quality control team because the files are deleted from our system in line with our security protocols; consequently, no refunds can be issued in relation to orders that are the subject of complaints after the expiry of this period.
