You agree that the credit card or other payment method you provided is authorized for the remaining amount of the fee of the service purchased. The remaining balance will be charged to your credit card or other payment methods on the days described in your purchase. Once you have made the initial payment, the remaining payment balance cannot be canceled or refunded, nor can the service be canceled or refunded. Failure to make future payments may result in your information being passed along to the leading credit bureaus and appearing on your credit report.
OBLIGATIONS OF USERS
The Site may allow users to upload, post, and/or distribute user-submitted content, and use of the Site for this purpose is subject to the following conditions:
You understand that all user feedback, data, comments, suggestions, information, text, data, software, sounds, photographs, audio, audiovisual, video, artwork, graphics, messages, and other materials of any nature (“Materials”) that are transmitted to or via the Site are the sole responsibility of the person from which the Materials originated. This means you, and not the Company, are entirely responsible for the Materials you transmit through the Site. Further, you understand that by using the Site you may be exposed to Materials that are offensive, objectionable, or indecent.
You shall not upload to, distribute through or otherwise publish through the Site any Materials which are indecent, libelous, defamatory, obscene, threatening, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, abusive, illegal, harassing, contain expressions of hatred, bigotry, racism or pornography, or are otherwise objectionable, or that would constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate the rights of any party or violate any law.
Your Materials will not disparage in any manner the Company, its Licensors, or their products, or services and sites. Should we find that you have produced such Materials, your account will be deactivated immediately. Your Materials shall not infringe the copyright, trademark, publicity/privacy right, or other intellectual property rights of any third party.
You shall not upload to the Site any Materials that contain viruses or any other computer code, corrupt files or programs designed to interrupt, destroy or limit the functionality or disrupt any software, hardware, telecommunications, networks, servers or other equipment.
OBLIGATIONS OF USERS: WRITING SERVICES
For writing services, it is your obligation and responsibility to provide all requested information to the Company before the expiration date. You will need to provide, via our online questionnaire, information about your work skills, duties, experience, accomplishments, goals, and other career information. By purchasing our writing service, you agree to initiate and actively participate in the writing process. You understand that the successful completion of your service depends on you providing complete and accurate information, including participating in the revision process.
All text, documents, or Materials you provided to us must be received in American, Canadian, British, or Australian English. We only accept and review Materials you submit to us as part of our questionnaire in Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word, or Google Docs formats. We cannot review or write documents from other software programs such as, but not limited to, Apple Pages. All revisions to our draft documents sent to us for editing must be in Microsoft Word or Google Docs format. If you do not have Microsoft Word, Microsoft Office 365 offers free access for one month. You understand that we only write in American, Canadian, British, or Australian English. We do not provide a translation into other languages or dialects.
The skills and goals interview allows you an additional opportunity to verbally communicate the context of the Materials you submitted in our online questionnaire and ask questions. However, the interview is not a substitute for completing our online questionnaire.
OBLIGATIONS OF USERS: ACCESS TO YOUR LINKEDIN ACCOUNT
You authorize us to access and make changes to your LinkedIn account by purchasing a service. While you authorize us to make changes to your LinkedIn account on your behalf, you and we both acknowledge that you maintain all responsibility for the content and settings of your LinkedIn account, and you must proactively, affirmatively review and monitor your LinkedIn account and further revise your LinkedIn account during and after your use of our service. By using and continuing to use our service or product, you acknowledge that this is your responsibility and that we do not and cannot assume any such responsibility for you.
The Company must sign in to your LinkedIn account to install your new LinkedIn personal profile or company page. Therefore, it is necessary for you to provide us with your LinkedIn sign-in email and password. By providing us with your LinkedIn sign-in email and password, you are authorizing us to access your LinkedIn account to make changes, including but not limited to edits to your account, profile, settings, connections, messages, posts, articles, company pages, and groups. Once the Company’s access to your LinkedIn account is complete, we recommend changing your LinkedIn password to something new and different from any other password you use. 99% of our clients prefer that the Company sign in to their LinkedIn account to install the profile. However, if you choose to install your new profile on LinkedIn, in that case, we will provide you with a Word document containing your LinkedIn profile or Company page text for you to install your profile within your LinkedIn account. It is your responsibility to notify us, in writing, within our online questionnaire if you do not want the Company to access your LinkedIn account to make changes.
DELIVERY & RESPONSE TIME: WRITING SERVICES
For resume and LinkedIn writing services, once the Company receives our online questionnaire from you and we complete the skills and goals interview with you, the Company will make all reasonable efforts to provide a first draft of your resume, profile, cover letter, or other services within four business days. A business day is considered Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Eastern Time Zone, excluding U.S. federal holidays. When we receive your completed questionnaire, the “first business day” would then be the next business day. For example, if we receive your questionnaire on a Monday at 10 a.m., Tuesday becomes the first business day. Therefore, the first draft of your document would be intended to be sent to you by Friday, which would be the fourth business day (assuming no U.S. federal holidays). Revisions, if requested by you, are intended to be addressed by us within two business days of receiving written direction from you. Up to three revisions (edits) per writing service (resume, letter, and LinkedIn are each separate services) are included within 30 days from the date the first draft of that service was emailed to you. Your access to any revisions expires 30 days from the date the first draft of that service was emailed to you. If you purchase a resume and LinkedIn writing, we complete the resume first. Once you approve the resume, we cannot write any additional revisions to the resume.
SERVICE DELIVERY: RESUME DISTRIBUTION TO RECRUITERS
By purchasing our Resume Distribution to Recruiters service, Resume Distribution to Private Equity and Venture Capital service, Recruiter Connect service, or Gold Package, you are authorizing the Company to email text and documents to other people, including but not limited to resumes and cover letters, on your behalf using your email address.
You provide the Company express written consent to send you promotional messages via SMS text, email, and voice. You may opt out by contacting us via email: [email protected].

GOVERNING LAW; EXCLUSIVE JURISDICTION
These Terms shall be governed by the laws of the District of Columbia without regard to its conflict of law provisions that would give rise to the substantive law of another jurisdiction. Any disputes arising under or related in any way to these Terms, the Site, or any Services shall be resolved solely through binding arbitration in the District of Columbia, in accordance with the provisions below.
DISPUTE RESOLUTION AND AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE; CLASS ACTION WAIVER.
Please read the following carefully. It affects your rights.
Most problems that users encounter can be resolved quickly and to a user’s satisfaction by contacting us at [email protected]. You and Klaxos each agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and Klaxos shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court, if your claims qualify. The United States Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Agreement to Arbitrate.
Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and by agreeing to arbitration, you and Klaxos waive the right to a judge or jury. Instead, arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator to decide the dispute, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award the same damages and relief on an individual basis that a court can award to an individual. An arbitrator also must follow these Terms and Conditions as a court would. You have the right to opt-out of this Agreement to Arbitrate (as explained below), which means that you would retain your right to litigate your disputes in a court, either before a judge or jury.
For the purpose of this provision, “Klaxos” means Klaxos and its parents, subsidiaries and affiliated companies, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees and agents. The term “Dispute” means any dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Klaxos regarding any aspect of your relationship with Klaxos, whether based in contract, statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including, but not limited to, fraud, misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement, or negligence), or any other legal or equitable theory, and includes the validity, enforceability, or scope of this provision (with the exception of the enforceability of the Class Action Waiver clause below). “Dispute” is to be given the broadest possible meaning that will be enforced, and shall include any claims against other parties relating to services or products provided or billed to you (such as Klaxos’s licensors, suppliers, dealers, or third party vendors) whenever you also assert claims against us in the same proceeding.
WE EACH AGREE THAT, EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BELOW, ANY AND ALL DISPUTES, AS DEFINED ABOVE, WHETHER PRESENTLY IN EXISTENCE OR BASED ON ACTS OR OMISSIONS IN THE PAST OR IN THE FUTURE, WILL BE RESOLVED EXCLUSIVELY AND FINALLY BY BINDING ARBITRATION RATHER THAN IN COURT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution
If you have a Dispute with Klaxos, you must first give us an opportunity to resolve the Dispute before filing an arbitration claim (or any other legal proceeding if you elect to violate the obligation to arbitrate your Dispute). You do that by sending a notice to [email protected]. That notice must include (1) your name, (2) your address, telephone number, and email address (if not apparent from the sent email), (3) a description of your claim, and (4) a description of the specific relief you are asking for. If Klaxos does not resolve the Dispute within 45 days after it receives your notice, you may pursue your Dispute through arbitration. You may pursue your Dispute in a court only under the circumstances described below.
If this Section applies and the Dispute is not resolved through Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution (above), then either you or Klaxos may initiate arbitration proceedings.
The American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) or JAMS will arbitrate all Disputes. For arbitration before AAA, the AAA’s Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes existing as of the time of the filing of the arbitration will apply. The AAA rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. For arbitration before JAMS, the JAMS Comprehensive Arbitration Rules & Procedures existing as of the time of the filing of the arbitration will apply. The JAMS rules are available at www.jamsadr.com or by calling 1-800-352-5267. This Section will control if it conflicts with the applicable arbitration rules. Under no circumstances will class action procedures or rules apply to the arbitration.
The arbitration shall be commenced as an individual arbitration, and shall in no event be commenced as a class arbitration. All issues shall be for the arbitrator to decide, including the scope of this Section.
To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to Klaxos, Attn: Litigation Department, 1015 Papermill Court, NW, Washington, DC 20007. The arbitration will be conducted before a single arbitrator in the county in which you reside or at another mutually agreed location. If the value of the relief sought is $10,000 or less, you or Klaxos may elect to have the arbitration conducted by telephone or based solely on written submissions, which election shall be binding on you and Klaxos, subject to the arbitrator’s discretion to require an in-person hearing, if the circumstances warrant. Attendance at an in-person hearing may be made by telephone by you and/or Klaxos, unless the arbitrator requires otherwise.
The arbitrator will not have the power to award relief to, against or for the benefit of any person who is not a party to the arbitration proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. The arbitration award will be final and binding on the parties, except for any right of appeal provided by the Federal Arbitration Act, and may be entered in any court having jurisdiction over the parties for purposes of enforcement.
Payment of Arbitration Fees and Costs
Klaxos will pay all arbitration filing fees and the arbitrator’s costs and expenses upon your written request given prior to the commencement of the arbitration. You are responsible for all additional fees and costs that you incur in the arbitration, including, but not limited to, attorneys’ fees or expert witness fees and expenses. In addition to any rights to recover fees and costs under applicable law, if you provide notice to and negotiate in good faith with Klaxos as provided in the section above titled “Pre-Arbitration Claim Resolution” and the arbitrator concludes that you are the prevailing party in the arbitration, you will be entitled to recover reasonable attorney’s fees and costs as determined by the arbitrator.
Class Action Waiver
YOU AND KLAXOS AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND KLAXOS AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, ANY RELIEF AWARDED CAN NOT AFFECT OTHER Klaxos USERS AND SHALL NOT BE ADMISSIBLE IN ANY OTHER ARBITRATION OR OTHER LEGAL PROCEEDING.
THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S). Neither you, nor any other user of the Site can serve as a class representative, class member, or otherwise participate in a class, consolidated, or representative proceeding without having complied with the opt-out requirements above.
You understand and agree that by entering into this Agreement, you and Klaxos are each waiving the right to a jury trial or a trial before a judge in a public court. In the absence of this Agreement to Arbitrate, you and Klaxos might otherwise have had a right or opportunity to bring Disputes in a court, before a judge or jury, and/or to participate or be represented in a case filed in court by others (including class actions). Except as otherwise provided in this Section, those rights are waived. Other rights that you would have if you went to court, such as the right to appeal and to certain types of discovery, may be more limited or may also be waived.
If any clause within this Agreement to Arbitrate (other than the Class Action Waiver clause above) is found to be unenforceable, that clause will be severed from this Section, and the remainder of this Section will be given full force and effect. If the Class Action Waiver clause is found to be unenforceable, this entire Agreement to Arbitrate will be unenforceable and the Dispute will be decided by a court.
These Terms, as amended, your registration forms, and the disclosures provided by the Company and the consents provided by you, constitute the entire agreement between you and the Company. If any provision of these Terms shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason is unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions. The Company’s failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others does not waive the Company’s right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches.
You agree that the Company may amend or modify these Terms or impose new conditions at any time by updating these Terms on the Site or upon notice from the Company to you as published through the Site or by email. Any use of the Site or order by you after such updating shall be deemed to constitute acceptance of such amendments, modifications, or new conditions. If you do not want to be bound by an amendment, you will need to terminate your registration, if any, and refrain from using the Site or using or ordering after that date. No other amendments will be valid unless they are in a paper writing signed by the Company and by you.
Except as expressly stated otherwise, any notices required or allowed under these Terms shall be given to the Company by postal mail to 1015 Papermill Court, NW, Washington, DC 20007, or as to a successor address that the Company makes available on the Site or through another reasonable manner. If applicable law requires that Company accepts email notices (but not otherwise), then you may send the Company email notice at [email protected]. With respect to Company’s notices to you, Company may provide notice of amendments by posting them on the Site and you agree to check for changes. Instead of or in addition, the Company may give notice by sending an email to the email address you provide during registration. Notice shall be deemed given 24 hours after it is posted or an email is sent, unless (as to email) the sending party is notified that the email address is invalid.
YOUR CONSENT TO THESE TERMS
By accessing and using the Site, you consent to and agree to be bound by the foregoing Terms. If we decide to change these Terms, we will make an effort to post those changes on this webpage so that you will always be able to understand the terms that apply to your use of the Site.
