AGREEMENT TO DEAL ELECTRONICALLY
The Company may keep records of any type of communication that is sent or received via the Site. All electronic records are deemed sent when they are properly addressed to the recipient and the record enters an information processing system outside the control of the sender or the record enters a region of an information processing system under the recipient’s control. All electronic records are deemed received when the record enters an information processing system that the recipient has designated or uses for the purpose of receiving electronic records or information of the type sent, in a form capable of being processed by that system, and from which the recipient is able to retrieve the electronic record. By accessing the Site or using the service, you acknowledge that your access to the Site is subject to the products/services of third parties over whom we have no control, including but not limited to: Internet service providers, hardware suppliers, third party software, telecommunications services and electric service. Accordingly, we shall not be liable for the unavailability of the Site or the service due to inaccessibility or inoperability as described above or due to the acts or omission of third parties.
LIMITED NON-COMMERCIAL LICENSE TO USE SITE
The Company hereby grants you the limited right to view and use the Site only for the purposes of accessing and using our career-related services solely for your personal use of creating and revising a resume or profile in digital and other formats. The Company reserves the right to terminate, suspend or deny, in its sole discretion, your access to all or any portion of the Site as described herein in various sections of these Terms. This license is limited to personal and non-commercial uses by you. Any rights not expressly granted to you herein are reserved to the Company. No portion of this Site is targeted to children. Unless you have received specific written permission from the Company, you may not (a) “frame” or otherwise impose editorial comment, commercial material or any information or content on, or in proximity to, content displayed on the Site or (b) alter or modify any content on the Site. Without limiting other restrictions, you agree not to reproduce, transmit, sell, or otherwise exploit the Site for any commercial purpose.
Except as otherwise provided in the Section entitled, “Limitation of Liability and Exclusive Remedy”: if we have not started work on your project, if you provide, via email, a written cancellation of your purchase:
within 7 days of placing the order: 100% refund of purchase amount;
within 8-30 days of placing the order: 50% refund of purchase amount;
there are no refunds after 30 days of placing the order.
Work is deemed to have started when the Company receives the Company’s questionnaire, via the Site form, or any other text, documents or Materials submitted by you. Once work has started you are not entitled to any refund of your purchase. We have this policy because of the administrative work required to get your project queued, reviewed and scheduled, as well as to account for any time lost that could have been used to work on other projects during your project’s reserved time slot.
You are purchasing a specific period of time (“Access Time”) to our services. The Company’s services provide 30 days of Access Time beginning from the date of purchase. After 30 days from the date of purchase, you will no longer have access to the service you purchased.
OBLIGATIONS OF USERS
The Site may allow users to upload, post, and/or distribute user-submitted content (“Materials”), and use of the Site for this purpose is subject to the following conditions:
Your Materials shall not infringe the copyright, trademark, publicity/privacy right or other intellectual property right of any person or organization. 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.
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 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.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF USERS: WRITING SERVICES
For writing services, it is your responsibility to provide all necessary information for the Company to use during the Access Time. You will need to provide, via our online questionnaire, detailed information about your work experience, accomplishments, goals, industry keywords and other information. By purchasing our writing service, you agree to initiate and actively participate in the writing process. This will require you to complete our online questionnaire, actively review work-in-progress drafts from your writer and respond to the Company within two business days. You understand that the successful completion of your service is dependent upon you providing complete and timely information.
Purchase of our phone consultation service allows you to verbally add context, ask questions or ask advice. However, you must still complete our online questionnaire even when providing information during the phone consultation.
While you authorize us to make changes to your LinkedIn account on your behalf, we and you both acknowledge that you maintain all responsibility for the content and settings of your LinkedIn account and you must 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, you acknowledge that this is your responsibility and that we do not and cannot assume any such responsibility for you.
All text, documents or Materials you provided to us must be received in North American English or British English. We accept and review all Materials only in Adobe PDF or Microsoft Word formats. We cannot review or write documents from other software programs such as Apple Pages or Google Docs. All revisions to our draft documents sent to us for editing must be in Microsoft Word format. If you do not have Microsoft Word, Microsoft Office 365 offers free access for one-month.
If you have purchased our profile writing and cover letter service, you are required to email your writer written approval to install your LinkedIn profile and begin writing your cover letter. If you do not email your approval within the Access Time, your rights to our LinkedIn profile and cover letter services will expire at the end of your Access Time.
SERVICE DELIVERY: WRITING SERVICES
The Company only writes in North American English. We do not provide translation into other languages or dialects. It is your responsibility to change spelling differences between North American English and British English or any other language. Your writer will need to 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. While we typically sign in to your LinkedIn account to install the profile, if you desire to install the profile into LinkedIn yourself, we will provide you with a Word document containing your profile or company page. It is your responsibility to notify us, in writing, within our online questionnaire that you do not want the Company to install your profile. Once installation is complete, we recommend you change your LinkedIn password to something new and different from any other password you use.
REVISIONS & RESPONSE TIME: WRITING SERVICES
For writing services, once the Company receives your online questionnaire, the Company will make all reasonable efforts to provide a first draft of your resume, profile, cover letter or other service within 4 business days. Subsequent revisions, if requested by you, are intended to be addressed within 2 business days, excluding U.S. holidays, of your writer receiving your direction. 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 4th business day (assuming no U.S. federal holidays).
60-DAY INTERVIEW PLEDGE: WRITING SERVICES
For resume and profile writing services, if you do not receive two times more job interviews within 60 days of the end of your Access Time, we will revise either the resume or profile once, free-of-charge. You must notify us, via email, between 91 and 150 days (approximately 5 months) from your date of purchase, to be eligible for a free revision. After 150 days from the date of purchase, you will no longer be eligible for the 60-day interview pledge free revision.
The Company is not an employment agency or a recruiting firm and makes no representations or guarantees regarding the effectiveness of our services in meeting your employment or business objectives.
The Company’s gift cards expire five years from date of purchase which is the same date they were last loaded with money. For unused gift cards, starting 12 months from the date of purchase, each month Klaxos will charge a 10% inactivity fee based on the value of the gift card. For example, the value for an unused gift card, 22 months after date of purchase would be $0.
