Confidentiality Agreement
We respect the privacy and confidentiality of our clients and their manuscripts. Never, under any circumstances, will material submitted to San Francisco Edit be discussed outside the company, reprinted, sold, or redistributed in any way. The copyright for all documents written, rewritten, edited, proofed, or otherwise worked on by San Francisco Edit will remain with the client.

Any contact information submitted to us will not be sold, rented, or used for any purpose other than professional correspondence between San Francisco Edit and the client.

Any payment information provided by the client will remain confidential and completely inaccessible to any parties outside of San Francisco Edit.

Written privacy and/or nondisclosure agreements are willingly signed and adhered to by principals and agents of San Francisco Edit.

We make every possible effort to maintain client confidentiality. However, due to the vulnerability of the Internet, San Francisco Edit cannot guarantee confidentiality of documents delivered via email.

The above agreement items also apply to any contractors working on behalf of San Francisco Edit.

Copyright
All content included on this site, such as text, graphics, logos, button icons, images, audio clips and software, is the property of San Francisco Edit and protected by U.S. and international copyright laws. The compilation (meaning the collection, arrangement, and assembly) of all content on this site is the exclusive property of San Francisco Edit. Any reproduction, modification, distribution, transmission, republication, display or performance of the content on this site is strictly prohibited.


 
Limitation of Liability
San Francisco Edit, its officers, owners, agents, any employee, and any contractor shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of or relating to this agreement, resulting from the use or the inability to use the site or messages received or products or services rendered or resulting from unauthorized access to or alteration of the user's transmissions or data, including but not limited to damages for loss of profits, even if San Francisco Edit has been advised of the possibility of such damages.


 
Applicable Law
This site is created and controlled by San Francisco Edit in the State of California, USA. As such, the laws of the State of California will govern these disclaimers, terms and conditions, without giving effect to any principles of conflict of laws. We reserve the right to make changes to our site and these disclaimers, terms and conditions at any time.

In the unlikely event that we have any claims against each other (other than ours solely related to payments of our invoices), we both agree to try to resolve them privately for a 60-day period. If we cannot resolve them, they will be arbitrated within 180 days by the Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (JAMS) or by an arbitrator we both agree upon. The arbitrators shall follow substantive California law, including Civil Procedure S1283.05. Awards must state all findings and reasoning in writing. No lost profits or punitive or emotional distress damages may be awarded. The award will be binding (no appeals) and may be enforced as a judgment in any court. The arbitrator may award reasonable attorneys' fees to the prevailing party.


 
Additional Terms
Since the documents we work on often change hands many times after our work on them is complete, we frequently do not see the final pages that go to press. Consequently, we do not assume final sign-off responsibility, and are not financially responsible for any loss, financial or otherwise, resulting from textual errors.

Although San Francisco Edit returns documents in fully edited form, the changes we make when editing or rewriting documents are suggestions only. It's the client's sole responsibility to evaluate the accuracy, completeness, and usefulness of all advice and services rendered.

San Francisco Edit's services don't include fact checking unless a specific request has been made and financial terms are agreed upon before the work is begun. Otherwise, the veracity of all factual claims are the responsibility of the client.

All estimated turnaround times are assumed to begin when San Francisco Edit receives the client's confirmation of the "terms". Such times refer to a single editing event with an explicit target result in view. Additions of materials, rewrites, or change of target journal or any activity, which alters the specific agreement will be considered to be outside the scope of the editing event.

San Francisco Edit reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at our discretion.

The client is responsible for supplying San Francisco Edit with a current and accurate name, billing address, phone number, and email address, and has an ongoing obligation to keep this information current.

The client is responsible for supplying appropriate payment in U.S. funds for all services performed by San Francisco Edit.

We are agreeing to a relationship based upon the terms outlined above. If any of them are unenforceable, they should still apply to the fullest extent possible and in any event the other terms will not be adversely affected.
