Disclaimer and Indemnity
Editing is intrinsically a process of offering advice and suggestions to the Author and Client. In addition to offering such advice and suggestions, the Editor’s responsibility is limited to notifying the Client of any unresolved differences with the Author before the work proceeds to the next stage of production/publishing. While the Editor will make every effort to bring questionable material to the attention of the Client, the Client agrees to indemnify and save harmless the Editor from any and all claims or demands, including legal fees, arising out of any alleged libel or copyright infringement committed by the Author or Client in creating the work.
Some of my services involve providing clients with advice and suggestions that contribute to the client’s publishing objective, however the client remains solely responsible for any decisions and publishing outcomes resulting from such service, advice or suggestions.
In providing professional writing, editing and content analysis services and advice, My Proofreader assumes no management responsibility for the client’s publishing decisions or practices.
As such, the client agrees to hold My Proofreader free of all liability and responsibility for any client actions or outcomes resulting from services, advice or information provided by My Proofreader.
I might insist on a deposit for new clients and large jobs.
I may negotiate regular progress payments on large jobs.
I invoice at the completion of the job, and do not issue statements, so please pay within 14 days of invoice (due date will be found on the right, on the bottom half of the invoice).
My terms for payment are 14 days, and this can be found specified on quotes and invoices.
Preferred payment method is by electronic funds transfer (EFT/Internet banking) however cash may be accepted if discussed and agreed to prior to work commencing on the text.
My Proofreader is not registered to collect GST.
