Limited Warranty

Queen's English Editing's aim is to reduce the number of errors present in your text document. While we take reasonable measures to ensure the quality of our work, it is unlikely that it will be possible for us to remove all the errors that may be present in your final document. Our editors are human and therefore subject to human error. By ordering Queen's English Editing's services, you acknowledge that editing is a subjective undertaking and that our staff are capable of both forming and overlooking errors. You are solely responsible for the use of any version of your edited document for any purpose, such as submission, publishing, or printing. This includes, but is not limited to, any financial, brand, and other consequences of any such errors.

Limitation of Liability

In no circumstances will Queen's English Editing be liable for any indirect, special, or consequential damages, including any loss of business, revenue, clients, or data, in relation to your use of this Site or any material returned by us. Nothing within these Terms and Conditions will operate to exclude any liability for death or personal injury arising as result of the negligence of Queen's English Editing, its staff or agents. If you are dissatisfied with any Queen's English Editing material, or with any of these Terms and Conditions, your only available option is to discontinue using our services. In some circumstances, refunds or partial refunds may be offered, but any such recourse is at our sole discretion.

Academic Liability

Queen's English Editing acknowledges that academic evaluation of work depends on considerations beyond our control. We cannot be held legally or otherwise responsible for any disappointing and/or unsatisfactory outcomes, howsoever arising, including as a result of the negligence or alleged negligence of our editors or staff.

Use of the Term "Guarantee" or "Guaranteed"

Use of the term "guarantee" or "guaranteed" on this site or in communications with Queen's English Editing refers to our undertaking to deliver certain standards of service based on our own internal evaluations. Our "guarantee", should we decide that we have failed to meet these standards, may be a sum equivalent to a partial or full refund, at our sole discretion, of the original amount paid by the client to engage the service. In no circumstances will the refund of monies exceed the original fee paid for the service. Refunds and partial refunds remain at our sole discretion.

Plagiarism and Copyright Infringement

It is your sole responsibility to ensure that your work does not breach anti-plagiarism or copyright guidelines.


Payment must be received in full before any work will commence. Your completed work will be returned to you electronically via email; no hard copies will be posted to you. It is your responsibility to ensure that you provide correct contact details so that we can return your work.

Order Completion Times/Delivery Times

We reserve the right to extend the order deadline if the editor believes that the document in question requires an "above average" number of amendments, which will require additional time to complete. While we make every effort to meet our stated turnaround times, in some instances, circumstances beyond our control may make it impossible to do so. Such circumstances include technical failures or personal issues on the part of the working editor. In ordering this service, you acknowledge that, in rare instances, an order may be delivered later than the scheduled delivery time (also listed as the "return time" or "turnaround time"). In such circumstances, we may offer a partial or full refund, at our sole discretion, which represents our "guarantee", but we accept no responsibility for any damages or losses incurred due to any such late delivery.


Refunds and partial refunds may be offered, at our discretion, in certain circumstances. If you are not entirely satisfied and can cite reasonable justifications, contact manuscript@queensenglishediting.com detailing your complaint. A full or partial refund may be agreed upon, provided you can supply justifiable reasons for dissatisfaction with the service you have received. We reserve the right to take action to address any concerns you may raise before offering to provide a refund. Any decisions as to the nature or extent of such corrective actions or refunds remain at our sole discretion.
