Terms and Conditions

This page outlines the Terms and Conditions between the Client (you) and the Freelancer (Jennifer Bromham of Uplift Editorial). Agreement to these Terms and Conditions will be confirmed in the service acceptance email before starting a project together.

  1. These terms & conditions apply to any work done for the Client by the Freelancer.
  2. The Client is under no obligation to offer the Freelancer work; neither is the Freelancer under any obligation to accept work offered by the Client.
  3. The Freelancer will provide service(s) as mutually agreed, confirmed in writing (email) by the Client.
  4. The work will be carried out unsupervised at such times and places as determined by the Freelancer, using her own equipment.
  5. The Freelancer confirms that she is self-employed, is responsible for her own income tax and National Insurance contributions, and for paying VAT (where applicable) and will not claim benefits granted to the Client’s employees.
  6. All content delivered to the Freelancer by the Client for editorial services, is owned by the Client.
  7. The copyright of any content created by the Freelancer as part of the developmental analysis or manuscript critiquing process is owned by the Freelancer. The Client may not share the content of these reports without prior written consent from the Freelancer.
  8. The Client will pay the Freelancer a fee per hour OR per printed page OR an agreed flat fee for the job, plus VAT where applicable.
  9. The completed work will be delivered on or before the date agreed, for the agreed fee, which will be based on the description of the work required and the brief, both supplied by the Client.
  10. If, however, on receipt of the item to be worked on or at an early stage, it becomes apparent that significantly more work is required than had been anticipated in the preliminary discussion/brief, the Freelancer may renegotiate the fee and/or the deadline.
  11. Similarly, if, during the term of the Freelancer’s work, additional tasks are requested by the Client, the Freelancer may renegotiate the fee and/or the deadline.
  12. If the project is lengthy, the Freelancer may invoice periodically for completed stages.
  13. Any content created by the Freelancer as part of the copyediting/ proofreading/ project management process will become the copyright of the Client, unless otherwise agreed.
  14. The nature and content of the work will be kept confidential and not made known to anyone other than the Client and its contractors without prior written permission.
  15. The Freelancer guarantees that any work that she subcontracts on behalf of the Client will be completed to the same standard, schedule and budget and with the same conditions of confidentiality.
  16. If the Freelancer’s work is unsatisfactory, the Freelancer will rectify it in her own time and at her own expense.
  17. Unless agreed otherwise at the outset, payment will be made within 30 days of receipt of the Freelancer’s invoice, according to the Late Payment of Commercial Debts (Interest) Act 1998 (amended 2002 and 2013).
  18. The information that the Client and the Freelancer may keep on record is covered by the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation. No more such information will be held than is necessary, at any time, to comply with those terms and with any compliance statement or privacy policy published by the Client and/or the Freelancer. Both the Client and the Freelancer agree that, where consent is required to hold or process such data, such consent has been requested and obtained and both facts can be demonstrated. Either may view the other’s records to ensure that they are relevant, correct and up to date.
  19. Either the Client or the Freelancer has the right to terminate a contract for services if there is a serious breach of its terms.
  20. If the Client wishes to mention the Freelancer in their acknowledgements upon publication of the work, the Freelancer reserves the right to review and/or decline this mention.
  21. The Freelancer may use the Client’s name in her promotional material.
  22. This agreement is subject to the laws of England and Wales [or Scots or Northern Ireland law, as appropriate], and both Freelancer and Client agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the English and Welsh [or Scots or Northern Ireland] courts.
  23. Whilst the Freelancer will aim for the highest possible editorial standards, the Freelancer cannot guarantee that the Client will secure agent representation, publication or sales
