Terms of Service
This agreement is between EduPlan, LLC (“EduPlan”) and its clients. Unless the context requires otherwise, EduPlan and/or its assigns shall be referred to as “us, we, or our” and you shall be referred to as “you or your.”
1) You will not hold EduPlan, its officers, editors, and representatives liable for any denied admissions to any undergraduate, graduate or professional program or school or any denial of employment. Furthermore, you understand that you will write all your essays and that you are responsible for all aspects of the essays and/or resumes.
2) We have made NO representations about what our service will do for your chances of admission to any undergraduate, graduate or professional school or program or for your chances of employment at any institution, corporation, business, or government agency.
3) EduPlan disclaims any and all implied or express warranties, including but not limited to, the essays’, resumes’, or letters’ fitness for a particular purpose and your fitness for any job or undergraduate, graduate or professional program.
4) You are responsible for career documents’ completeness and accuracy, and for proofreading. We are not liable for any injury or damage caused by omissions, false statements, or other inaccuracies.
5) You must review all career and educational documents and notify us of any needed corrections within 7 days of the date draft copy was e-mailed to you. If you wish to make revisions thereafter, you will be charged at the professional rate of US$150.00 per hour – minimum 1/4 hour.
6) You understand and agree to our refund policy, which is as follows:
EduPlan does not issue refunds for work already performed.
Once you have participated in the data gathering consultation, there will be no refunds. If an educational consulting package client wants to cease work before the editor meets with the client, he or she receives a complete refund. If a package client wants to cease work after the editor sends the outline and before the editor actually starts editing the essay, then EduPlan issues a 50% refund.
If you purchase a consulting package, decide to stop work before using up all your time, and have more than one hour of unused time, you can request a refund. EduPlan will calculate your refund as follows: The Amount Paid – [US$150.00 * Time]. “Time” is the time your editor spent consulting with or editing for you.
You acknowledge that our time spent reviewing initial documents, preparing for and conducting client interviews, communicating with you, preparing resumes and other documents, and providing all other products and services, is compensable.
You agree that if our pricing or fee schedules are rejected by a court or arbitrator, then you will compensate us at the rate of US$150.00 per hour, with a minimum charge of US$150.00. Time beyond the first hour will be rounded up to the nearest 1/4 hour.
We do, however, guarantee that resume writing clients will get interviews with the résumé developed by EduPlan if used correctly (please read our interview rewrite guarantee at www.eduplan.us/guarantee). Should you feel that your résumé is not effective in the marketplace, we will together review the résumé and your documentation of submissions to appropriate employers. Then, we will rewrite the résumé, if necessary.
By purchasing our services, you agree that time is of the essence and that you expressly acknowledge and waive your right to cancel this Agreement under applicable state laws. Clients who cancel their payment may be charged a US$150.00 chargeback fee.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone or to cancel service to anyone.
We provide your career and educational consulting documents in Microsoft Word format. We cannot otherwise guarantee the compatibility of files with your systems or that documents will retain their original formatting features. We may keep electronic or paper copies of documents indefinitely.
