Academic Liability The mark you are awarded by your academic institution is not within the control of The Proofreading Shop and The Proofreading Shop cannot be held responsible (legally or otherwise) for a lower than expected mark or grade in relation to any material returned by The Proofreading Shop. While our aim is to ensure that your work is free from errors of spelling, grammar and punctuation and is consistent in style and structure, we cannot guarantee that using our proofreading service will result in improved marks. We strongly recommend that you advise your tutor/supervisor that you have employed a proofreader. We recommend that you check that the use of a proofreading/copy editing service is permitted by your academic institution and, if so, whether it is a requirement that this be referenced in your work. Plagiarism (including collusion) and breach of copyright are very serious offences and there are usually severe penalties including permanent disqualification from your studies if plagiarism or breaches of copyright are proved to exist in your work. Avoiding plagiarism remains your responsibility at all times. The Proofreading Shop does not check your document for any possible plagiarism issues. The Proofreading Shop will not proofread your document in any way that breaches your academic institution’s potential rules concerning plagiarism and cheating. This means that, for example, The Proofreading Shop will not rewrite your document or substantial parts of it, add text from anyone else's work and insert it into your document, paraphrase anyone else's work and insert it into your document or make any other change that would constitute plagiarism. You accept that The Proofreading Shop will give you no other guidance about plagiarism, collusion and cheating. You accept that The Proofreading Shop carries out a service that assists you in your academic work, but our service does not constitute professional academic advice. If The Proofreading Shop has evidence to suggest that you are guilty of plagiarism, then we can immediately cancel the service and refuse to do further work for you.
Disclaimer The Proofreading Shop will undertake to produce the best work possible for the client. However, the ultimate responsibility for the work rests with the client, and we can take no responsibility and accept no liability for damages or costs caused by any errors left in the document.
