The Writer in no case can be considered as a hired employee of the Company or as its agent or representative.
Please, note that we do not complete online assignments and multiple-choice tests. We believe that passing tests (whether they are online or not) is a student's direct responsibility, just as taking exams themselves. In addition to that, it is difficult to evaluate the amount of work done by the Writer in this case.
Besides, as a Company, we also stick to the established social and moral principles. In this regard, we do not write papers about some controversial topics, namely gay marriage and abortion.
If you come across an order that falls under one of these controversial topics or is an online assignment/multiple choice test, please, do not apply for/complete such an order. Instead, please, contact the Support Team and ask them to check the instructions and cancel the order.
Each Paper must be in full compliance with the following requirements:
Whenever the Customer is not satisfied with the quality of the Paper (to be proven) he/she can ask for a revision. The Writer shall complete the revision within a defined period of time. The Customer has the right to request revisions as long as the final payment is not released to the Writer. After the final payment no revision requests will be accepted.
It is mandatory for the Writer to complete any revision. By accepting Order, the Writer agrees to be available for revisions and to be able to address and complete them within the deadline specified. Whenever the Writer makes no revision of the Paper upon the Customer`s request and the Order gets cancelled a penalty may be applied to the Writer.

The Company may increase the amounts of penalties for late delivery of the Paper at its own discretion, depending on the scale of the problem and the damage caused to the business.
