Terms of Use


Please Read These Terms Carefully Before Using This Service

The contents on this website http://www.unambiguous.ca (the "site") are provided by “Unambiguous Edit” (herein after referred to as “Unambiguous”), as a service to its customers. By using this site, or service, you agree to these terms (“Agreement”). If you do not agree to them, do not use the site or access the service from it or Unambiguous.

1. Acceptance of Terms

The Services are offered to you conditional on your acceptance without modification, of the Terms, conditions, and notices contained in this agreement and any operating rules, policies, and procedures that are published on this Website (the “Site”) by Unambiguous (collectively, the "Terms" of Use). The following Terms govern your access to and use of the Service. Your subscription and use of the Service constitutes your agreement to all such Terms. These Terms may be updated by us from time to time without notice to you. These Terms of Service apply to all users of the Unambiguous site.

The words "use" or "using" in this Agreement, means any time a User (a person visiting/using the content/service of the site), directly or indirectly, with or without the aid of a machine or device, does or attempts to access, interact with, use, display, view, print or copy from Unambiguous Services (see clause 2 below), transmit, receive or exchange data or communicate with the Unambiguous Services, or in any way utilizes, benefits, takes advantage of or interacts with any function, service or feature of the Unambiguous Services, for any purpose whatsoever.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, the Terms will govern the use of any new features that augment or enhance the current Services, including the release of new Unambiguous resources and services.

2. The Service

The Unambiguous website including all content (“Content”) available through the Unambiguous domain name, (the "Site") is owned and operated by Unambiguous Edit.
This Site provides to its customers online editing services of documents, proofreading and copy-editing. Unambiguous accepts the orders for work, and the contractors pick up the documents to perform the work. The customer will have to agree to this website's terms and conditions when placing an order through the website for proofreading/ editing services. Also, placing an order in itself will not be an acceptance of the work order. If the document submitted contains any inappropriate or offensive material, Unambiguous retains the right to refuse to work on the project. The Turnaround Time (TAT) requested by you will be accounted from the time the work is picked up by a Contractor.
Our service, which offers a live quote system based on word count, allows you to place a lower word count than what is available in the document. We do have a box for notes where you can indicate that the word count applies for a specific portion of the document you want to be edited. You only have to pay for that. However, if there is no specification in the box for notes as to what part of the document the word count applies to, and if the word count paid for is less than the total word count of the document, then our editors will only edit for that specific word count limit, starting from the first word of the document. In ANY case, word count includes text in headers, footers, in-text citations, titles, title pages, reference/citations lists, UNLESS otherwise stated by you at the time of submitting the document.

You also understand and agree that the Services may include advertisements. You also understand and agree that the Services may include certain communications from Unambiguous, such as service announcements, administrative messages and updates.

3.   Modifications to the Service

Unambiguous reserves the right to modify or discontinue all or part of the Service, temporarily or permanently, with or without notice to User, and is not obligated to support or update the Service. The amended Terms of Service of this agreement shall be effective immediately after they are initially posted on the Site. User's continued use of the Service after the posting of the amended Terms on the Site constitutes User's affirmative: (a) acknowledgement of the Terms and its modifications; and (b) agreement to abide and be bound by the Terms, as amended. User acknowledges and agrees that Unambiguous shall not be liable to User or any third party in the event that Unambiguous exercises its right to modify or discontinue all or part of the Service. You are responsible for being familiar with any changes or modifications to these Terms of Use. You can review the most current version of the Terms at any time at: www.unambiguous.ca/terms.

4.   Use

In order to get communication regarding the service from this site, you must submit your valid email address when you submit your document. You can check the status of your order by a live update system on the site under the link "My Edits". You will also receive live email updates about when your order is picked up, and an estimated time for when it will be returned to you after completion of the work.

By electing to use these services; (a) you warrant that all information you submit is current, true and accurate; (b) you agree to update this information; (c) you agree not to use the Services for any unlawful purpose.

You confirm that you are of legal age (as defined by the laws of your country) to make on-line purchases of our services. You also represent that you are not a person barred from receiving the Services under the laws of your country or other applicable jurisdiction. If you provide any information that is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, or if Unambiguous has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Unambiguous has the right to suspend or terminate your account and refuse any and all current or future use of the Services (or any portion thereof).

5.  Payment

Customer shall pay upfront when the documents are submitted for the services. Payment shall be made through PayPal.

Unambiguous reserves the right to suspend or terminate your account without notice upon rejection of any card charges or if your card issuer (or its agent or affiliate) seeks return of payments previously made to Unambiguous when Unambiguous believes you are liable for the charge. Such rights are in addition to and not in lieu of any other legal rights or remedies available to Unambiguous.

If you elect to cancel a project that has already been picked up by an editor, your payment will only be partially refunded, based on a percentage/fractional scheme of the number of days it has been in progress. That is to say, if your order was for a week-long turnaround time, and it has been in progress for one day, you will be refunded 6/7ths of your payment. A partial day in progress counts as one full day for cancellation purposes. This means that once a 24-hour project is commenced, no payment will be refunded for a cancellation. For a 48-hour project that is commenced, a maximum of 50% will be refunded for a cancellation. All refunds will be processed through PayPal, and will take 7-10 business days to process. 

Any discounts or vouchers you redeem will be processed as a PayPal refund once the project has commenced.
