Terms of Service
After Magnum Proofreading makes changes to your document, you are free to make further amendments. Thus, Magnum Proofreading retains no rights to and holds no responsibility for any part of any published work it has edited.
Magnum Proofreading has the right to deny service to a customer or to cancel a customer’s order for any reason without notice. Reasons for denied or canceled orders include, but are not limited to, highly offensive content, hostile emails, and other negative experiences with a customer (e.g. extremely delayed payment for a previous order).
The rates provided on magnumproofreading.com are given in Canadian dollars. You will be able to pay your fee in whatever currency you like, though you may be charged a currency conversion fee.
Fees are based on the word count of your document, which is verified by Magnum Proofreading after you place your order. It is strongly advised that you ensure you are satisfied with the word count determined by Magnum Proofreading before making your payment. By making your payment, you express your agreement that the word count provided by Magnum Proofreading is correct.
Cancellations and Refunds
Cancellations should be requested by sending an email to JakeMagnum@magnumproofreading.com. Your email should include your order number and clearly express your wish to cancel your order. Your order will be canceled immediately upon reception of this email.
After canceling your order, you will likely have part of your payment refunded, as outlined below.
If any part of your project has been proofread before you cancel, you will be refunded a percentage of your payment equal to the unedited portion of your project (e.g., if you paid $100.00 and 25% of your document was proofread, you would be refunded $75.00). You will also be sent your partially proofread document
If less than 10% of your document has been proofread when you cancel, you will have 90% of your payment refunded.
Customer satisfaction is extremely important to Magnum Proofreading. As such, all editing is backed by a satisfaction guarantee—if you are not fully satisfied with the service you are provided, you may request a free additional round of editing.
To receive an additional round of proofreading, please send an email to JakeMagnum@magnumproofreading.com that specifies how Magnum Proofreading failed to provide adequate service as outlined on the appropriate service details page. All claims of this nature must be made within 30 days after your proofread document was returned to you.
No refunds of any kind are issued for completed projects.

Upon applying to become a member and making your initial deposit of CAD 299.99, a balance of CAD 399.99 will be attached to your email address. After paying your membership fee, you may pay $0.00 for all your orders until you have received $400 worth of editing, as the fee will be deducted from your balance.
