Terms & Conditions

This is where we hide all the technical speak, safely locked away and out of reach of your CV. We’re here to ironclad your applications and lighten the load; not weigh you down with caveats and clauses. Sometimes though, to avoid unwanted surprises, you’ve got to wade through a little jargon. If you don’t find what you’re after amongst all the legal-speak, try out FAQs.

Terms & Conditions of Service

You are provided with access to this Website in accordance with these Conditions and any orders placed by you must be placed strictly in accordance with these Conditions. These Terms and Conditions are written with the sole jurisdiction of the English courts and according to English Law. We reserve the right to cancel or change these terms and conditions at any time and without prior notice. The provisions relating to Disclaimer, Liability, Intellectual Property and Indemnity shall survive beyond completion of any order. Any use of the above terminology or other words in the singular, plural, capitalisation and/or he/she or they, are taken as interchangeable and therefore as referring to same. If you do not agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions, you should stop using the Website immediately.

Contract Creation

No part of this Website is intended to constitute a contractual offer capable of acceptance. Your order represents a contractual offer and our acceptance of that offer is deemed to occur upon sending a confirmation email to you indicating that your payment has been received and your product/service is on it’s way to you.

In the case of  CV, LinkedIn or Cover Letter writing, completion of the contract between you and us will take place on the dispatch of the final version of your items ordered until we have notified you that we do not accept your order, or you have cancelled it in accordance with our Distance Selling Regulations, Cancellations and Refunds article below.

Similarly, with relation to Social Media Audits and Social Media Management services, ABCV Solutions will carry out work only where an agreement is provided by email and payment is received. An ‘order’ is deemed to be a written contract between ABCV Solutions and the client. Completion of the order will be confirmed in writing by us confirming that the work has been carried out to the best of our ability.

Amending and Approving Your New CV

For CVs, we’ll make edits at zero cost requested within two (2) working days of receiving your first draft and before you’ve accepted the first draft via your ABCV Solutions account. LinkedIn services and Cover Letters don’t include draft approval and edits. We’ll need to charge a fee for any changes if…

  • …you’ve approved the draft of your CV.
  • …the two working day window for edit requests has passed.
  • …the edits requested start to build up to the point where we are virtually starting again, though we’re confident you won’t want to scrap the whole thing.

If we don’t hear from you requesting edits, or if you haven’t approved your draft CV after seven (7) working days, then we’ll use the information we hold about you to prepare your final documents after which the document will be dispatched and the order deemed closed.

All documents completed by ABCV Solutions will be made available to you to download from your online account under ‘Your Documents’ and you will receive a full breakdown of the work completed to transform your CV via email.

LinkedIn Optimisation

Eyeing up our LinkedIn Profile Optimisation service as a stand-alone, without a new CV? Great, you won’t be disappointed. Just remember, we can only accept your order once you have completed the insight Questionnaire and sent us an up-to-date CV. If you are purchasing our LinkedIn Profile Optimisation service in addition to a new CV, then we can only start work once you have approved the draft of the new CV we have prepared for you.

Unlike CVs, amendments on LinkedIn Profiles are not included in the service and delivery of our email confirming the changes we have made to your profile completes your order.

Express CV Writing Service

We don’t compromise on quality so we can only undertake a professional CV express service when we have bandwidth so email us first at info@abcvsolutions.com and we’ll let you know if we can deliver on time.

After we send you confirmation that we’ve received your current CV, and so long as you’ve completed the insight Questionnaire to a suitable standard, then we promise to deliver on our Express service within 24 hours or 48 hours, depending on your selection unless we can’t contact you if we need your input, so please be attentive to our contact!

We’ll make edits at no extra charge within one (1) additional working day. Once we receive your acceptance of the draft(s), we will send you the final CV to complete your Express order. If we don’t hear from you requesting edits, or if you haven’t approved your draft CV after two (2) working days, then we’ll use the information we hold about you to prepare your final documents after which the document will be dispatched and the order deemed closed.

If you need your CV to be completed by an earlier specific deadline that falls outside the Express service offerings but is closer than our standard seven (7) working days,, please email to us at info@abcvsolutions.com before placing an order to ensure that we can meet your requirements.

Working days are Monday to Friday (excluding UK public holidays).

Social Media Management

Social Media Management campaigns can be ordered on a weekly or monthly basis. Both we and the client have the right to terminate an order for any reason, including the ending of services that are already underway. No refunds shall be offered, where a Service is deemed to have begun and is, for all intents and purposes, underway.

All work which is signed off by a client is considered approved. Any amendments made after the work has been signed off may be subject to additional fees on a pro-rata rate of £35 per hour.

The social media management services featured on this website are available internationally. Additional costs for international clients may be charged.

We reserve the right to refuse to handle in any way, material which may be deemed offensive, illegal or controversial. Due to external factors, we cannot offer any guarantees regarding the search engine position we will achieve or the number of views and engagements to your profile.

Non-acceptance of an Order

Non-acceptance of an order may be a result of one of the following;

  • Our inability to obtain authorisation for your payment,
  • Our inability to contact you with the Personal Information you provided,
  • Our inability to achieve reasonable Turnaround times due to the amount of work we take on,
  • Your inability to complete or provide insufficient information in the Questionnaire
  • Your inability to order an appropriate level of CV based on the length of your career and seniority

Fees

All fees must be paid in full in advance via PayPal.

Use of PayPal

Use of our link to PayPal to pay for your services is done strictly at your own risk. We accept no responsibility for any misuse of your PayPal Account, Credit/Debit Card or Bank Account as a result of using this service. If PayPal refuses to authorise payment, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery and we are not obliged to inform you of the refusal.

Pricing

All prices are subject to change at any time without notice. We will not be liable to you or anyone else for changing any prices. Prices are stated in GBP (British Pound Sterling). PayPal will automatically apply the relevant exchange rate for other currencies. We will not be liable for any currency conversion fees applied to your transaction.

Distance Selling Regulations, Cancellations and Refunds

In the UK, you have the right to cancel your order within a statutory seven (7) working day cooling-off period as defined by the United Kingdom’s Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000. However, under the above-mentioned regulations, our CV, LinkedIn, Cover Letter and Social Media services are ‘made to the consumer’s specification or clearly personalised’ and are therefore exempt from any refund. If the provision of the Services commences within the cooling-off period, your right to cancel under this provision shall end.

However, we do allow cancellation on a standard service only if notification is received in writing within 24 hours of payment but is prior to ABCV Solutions commencing work on your behalf. If you terminate any non-completed orders you will not be entitled to a refund to any monies paid in relation to those orders.

We reserve the right to terminate any contract without a refund due to destructive, offensive, aggressive or abusive behaviour from a client.

Without prejudice to the provisions above, in the event that we do not receive any communication from you following a period of thirty (30) days from the date of order placement, then we will use the information we hold about you to notify you that your order is deemed closed without any refund provided.

Your Obligations When Submitting Information To Us

You warrant that the information submitted to us does not contain false or defamatory material, or that which infringes the copyright, trademark rights and intellectual rights of third parties or submit any information likely to damage ABCV Solutions.

You warrant that all information which you provide to us is true, accurate, current and complete in all respects and that you will notify us immediately of any changes to such information prior to completion of the contract.

We cannot be held liable for any criminal proceedings which arise as a result of false or misleading information being included in your CV or any other documents prepared by us.

Electronic Documentation Format

Documents transmitted via email and/or provided on USB Memory Sticks are in Microsoft Word for Windows and Adobe PDF format. We will not be held liable for incompatibility issues with a user’s individual computer, nor be required to provide supporting software. We cannot accept any liability for late delivery of emails or for the failure of emails to arrive.

Microsoft Word is not currently fully supported on the Apple iPad. This means that some formatting features may not be displayed when viewing a Microsoft Word file on the device. Therefore, we recommend viewing your CV and Cover Letters using a PC or Laptop with a full version of Microsoft Word installed.

Whilst every attempt is made to check electronic documentation for viruses and bugs before transmitting by email it is your responsibility to ensure that your computer is adequately protected from viruses and bugs.

Account Security

If you think someone has obtained your Account details without consent, you should contact ABCV Solutions immediately to suspend your Account and cancel any unauthorised orders or payments that may be pending. Be aware that orders or payments can only be cancelled up until 24 hours prior to commencement of the Service.

ABCV Solutions will suspend the provision of Work pending investigation. Following the investigation, it shall be determined whether or not to cancel the order and make a full or partial refund of the payment.
