Impersonating any person, misrepresenting Your identity, credentials, affiliations, or intentions, and systematically retrieving information to create or compile collections, databases, directories, or similar, whether manually, through bots, crawlers, or spiders, or otherwise, is not authorized. Moreover, if You are barred from receiving Services under the laws of the United States or other jurisdictions, You are not permitted to access or use the Website or Services.

CUSTOMER VERIFICATION

We may require You to verify Your identity as part of our security measures. This verification process is designed to validate the payment method You have used for Your work to maintain the integrity of our Services and protect against fraudulent activities.

The verification can be conducted through various means, including our ticket system, via email, or over the phone. The method of verification will vary depending on the specific case.

The most common form of verification is payment verification, where we confirm the details of the payment method you've used. This process helps us ensure that the payment method is valid and has been authorized by you.

In rare instances, we may also require ID verification. This involves providing proof of Your identity, such as a government-issued identification document, or any other identification documents. This is typically required when there is a need for additional confirmation of Your identity.

It is essential to note that these verification procedures are in place to protect both You as the Customer and us as the Service provider. Your cooperation in completing these verification procedures promptly and accurately is greatly appreciated.

PROVISION OF SERVICES

As a user of our Services, You are obliged to interact respectfully with our Writers and our company. The usage of our Product in any way that could be construed as harassment towards our Writers or the Company is strictly prohibited. Furthermore, any form of communication that is unwelcome, rude, abusive, unlawful, disrespectful, offensive, harmful, or detrimental is not tolerated.

Should You feel that a Writer has breached any law or is in any way threatening or endangering you, we urge You to contact our Support Team immediately at support@studycrumb.com.

It is important to understand that when using our Services, You will be exposed to Content from our Writers who operate outside our direct control or supervision. We do not assume responsibility for the Content or communications they provide.

You assume all risks associated with Your information, including its quality, accuracy, reliability, and any personal identification disclosure.

It's Your sole responsibility to ensure that Your information does not contain anything illegal, false, intentionally misleading, defamatory, or in violation of any third-party rights.

Lastly, You acknowledge that our Website is designed to provide educational assistance to Customers and as such, You commit to adhere to the community guidelines.

PLACING AND PROCESSING ORDERS

Orders are made by filling out the provided Order form on the Website. The Service is strictly request-based and not provided by any other means.

The Order form will detail the extent of the work, including Order parameters and delivery timelines. It is Your obligation to provide precise, complete, and final details in each standard Order form section. It's crucial to present the Order details in a way that enables the Writer to deliver an accurate Product.

We retain the right to re-evaluate Order details after the final payment to verify whether the assignment requirements, as specified by you, were met. If there's a discrepancy, our Support Team reserves the right to modify the Order to ensure adherence to Your stipulated requirements.

Each Order You place should have a specified volume, measured by word count. Upon receiving the delivered Service, the Product must correspond to the anticipated word count. A document may contain fewer pages than requested but should adhere to the guideline of 275 words per double-spaced page or 550 words per single-spaced page. If there's a discrepancy in page or word count, You may request a reformat to match the guideline.

Changes to the scope of work can be made by You or the Support Team only if the Writer hasn't started the work. No alterations can be made once the Writer has begun working on the Order. If changes affect the work's volume or complexity, or narrow the completion time, You may be asked to provide additional compensation.

If You require specific resources to be used in the Order execution, You must specify these and provide them to the Writer together with the other Order details. If not provided, the Writer will source them, with additional charges incurred.

If You fail to provide the materials within the deadline, extra payment and/or time may be required for completing the Order. We bear no responsibility if the Order instructions were initially wrong or altered. If additional materials are added after the work is delivered, all funds may be released to the Writer if initial instructions are followed.

We encourage communication with the Writer using the Messaging System or directly contacting our Support Team for further information. By placing an Order, You acknowledge that it may take a few hours to receive a reply from a Writer.

You can monitor the progress of Your Order through Your personal account, where each Order's information and status is displayed. Our Support Team is also available 24/7 to provide updates on the Order status.

You have the option to select a favorite Writer to work on Your Order by specifying their name or ID in the "Preferred writer" field. However, there's no 100% guarantee that the specific Writer will be available to work on the Order.

While placing Orders, You must not send any Content to the Writers deemed illegal, harmful, threatening, abusive, violent, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, pornographic, libelous, invasive of privacy or publicity rights, hateful or racially, sexually, ethnically or otherwise objectionable.

BILLING AND DISCOUNTS

When submitting an Order, You agree to compensate for the Services rendered. We initiate processing Your Order only after the Service payment has been made and authorized. We advise that any payment card used should have at least six months remaining before its expiration date.

In certain scenarios, we may request a photo of the credit card used for payment. The cardholder's name and the last four digits of the card should be clearly visible. We assure the confidentiality and security of all personal data shared by Customers.

The Product payment is determined by our pricing structure and is required in advance, as indicated on the Order form, once the work scope is established. The Customer may also incur a Service fee for using the Website, calculated by the Company based on the Order's complexity, parameters, and other features. The exact Service fee will be available at the payment stage.

We will not proceed with Product delivery until full payment has been received and approved.

Payments can also be made using funds from Your personal balance.

We may provide discount and bonus programs at our discretion. Customers can apply promo codes during the Order process. If the code is not entered in the designated section of the Order form, it will not be applied to the Order.

We ensure equal access to discount and bonus program information for all Customers.

Following Your Order evaluation, we may request an additional payment or additional time to work on Your Order. The final price is determined by the Writer after manual review. You have the right to either agree to the new Order parameters and total, or refuse to cooperate with the Writer. If You opt to discontinue our Services, a refund will be processed per the Refund Policy.

Payments for Orders and Products can be made using Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Diner’s Club, UnionPay, Maestro or JCB cards to recharge Your personal balance. In cases of partial or full payment reimbursement, You have the option to proceed according to the Money Back Guarantee or transfer the funds to Your personal balance.

Please note that our Service prices are subject to change. All Service descriptions, prices, and payment Terms posted on our Website are at our discretion and may change at any time without prior notice.

We may introduce new Services for additional fees, adjust fees for existing Services, or discontinue Services at our discretion.

ORDER REVISION

We provide complimentary modifications to the Customer to ensure Product quality and complete satisfaction.

Should these timeframes elapse, Customers may opt for paid adjustments or place an Order for Editing. On certain occasions, our Quality Assurance Department may offer complimentary Product adjustment beyond the stipulated time frame, solely at their discretion.

Our Quality Assurance Department holds the right to refuse an adjustment request if the new instructions contradict the original Order instructions. In such instances, the Customer might be asked to cover the cost of the proposed changes or place an Order for Editing.

The Quality Assurance Department also reserves the right to decline or limit multiple adjustment requests if the Customer's actions suggest an overt exploitation of the Writer or other unreasonable requests.

If the request aligns with all requirements outlined in these Terms, we will adjust the delivered Product free of charge.

In Order to facilitate a smooth and efficient Product Revision process, we kindly request Your cooperation. If You require a revision for Your Ordered Product, we may ask Youto provide additional time or extend the deadline.
