Terms & Conditions

Clean Sweep Copy Terms & Conditions

Description & Disclaimer

Clean Sweep Copy does not assume responsibility or liability for errors of omission or commission for any of its services. All final changes are based solely upon the discretion of the client, and the client takes full responsibility for any and all changes. Likewise, Clean Sweep Copy cannot guarantee that clients who use its resume services will be offered employment. Resumes are only one step in the hiring process, and although Clean Sweep Copy can help clients get noticed by hiring managers, it is the responsibility of the client to perform well during interviews and meetings. In cases where temporary logins have been provided by clients for Clean Sweep Copy to work directly in clients' content management systems, it is the responsibility of the client to disable those temporary logins after projects have been completed (please see the Privacy Policy section below). By using Clean Sweep Copy’s editing and writing services, clients automatically approve the use of Associated Press style guidelines, which are used by respected print and online news outlets.



  1. Any pricing outlined on this site is a base price and is subject to change according to the complexity of the project.
    * Please note:
    – The 10 percent “new client” discount applies only to the client’s first project with Clean Sweep Copy and is limited to one project per client.
    – To qualify for the charitable organization discount, nonprofits must have 501(c)(3) status. For nonprofits that qualify, the charitable organization discount will always apply, but only one charitable organization discount can be used per project.
    – Clean Sweep Copy periodically offers special service promotions. During such promotions, discounts are applied to purchases in accordance with the terms and expiration dates clearly outlined on

  2. Pricing based on word counts are determined through the use of TransAbacus and Microsoft Word’s Word Count tool.

  3. Clean Sweep Copy is happy to provide clients with unlimited free estimates. The price listed in the client’s most recent free estimate is the amount that will be initially charged if the client wishes to make a purchase (please see No. 4 in this section).

  4. For smaller one-time services (e.g., resumes, website writing/editing, banner and business card design), Clean Sweep Copy emails free estimates to clients, unless otherwise instructed; free estimates can also be mailed to a physical address. Free estimates highlight the price of services as well as all applicable factors from No. 1 of this section. Estimate emails include a payment link for online transactions and a pay-by-check option. Estimates mailed to a physical address have an optional invoice attached. Depending on the scope of the finished project, Clean Sweep Copy reserves the right to send clients a follow-up invoice for additional payment, which clients are obligated to pay upon receipt, or to give clients a partial refund.

  5. For large-scale and/or ongoing projects (e.g., website and social media maintenance), Clean Sweep Copy is happy to draw up a custom contract that reflects negotiated deadlines, pricing and a weekly or monthly payment schedule.

  6. Clients who use Clean Sweep Copy’s services for business purposes might be able to claim them as tax write-offs. Clean Sweep Copy strongly urges clients to consult with a certified public accountant regarding this benefit.

Payment Guidelines

  1. For smaller, one-time services (resumes, website writing/editing, banner and business card design, etc.), Clean Sweep Copy includes a corresponding payment link on estimates. If clients are satisfied with the details outlined in their free estimate, they can click the payment link to make an online purchase or choose the pay-by-check option.
    * Please note: Clients are under no obligation to make a purchase.

  2. By making a payment, clients acknowledge that they agree to the terms and conditions explained in this document as well as those outlined in their free estimate. Their free estimate doubles as their invoice.

  3. Clients must pay in full before Clean Sweep Copy can begin a smaller one-time service. If advanced payment has been made by check, work cannot begin until the check clears.
    * Please note: Once payment has been made in full and work has begun, full payment is nonrefundable. However, if payment has been made but work has not yet begun, a full refund will be given. Thus, clients’ chances of getting back a full refund after canceling an order are greatly improved if they email or call Clean Sweep Copy immediately. Partial refunds are at the discretion of Clean Sweep Copy.

  4. For large-scale, ongoing services (see No. 5 under the Pricing section), Clean Sweep Copy customizes its services to clients’ needs and schedules and sends invoices on an agreed-upon weekly or monthly schedule that reflect agreed-upon pricing and payment deadlines.
    * Please note: Clean Sweep Copy reserves the right to suspend or stop services to clients who fail to meet payment deadlines, and Clean Sweep Copy reserves the right to seek legal action against clients for compensation still owed. 

  5. The only acceptable method of online payment is through PayPal, which includes options to pay by debit card, MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover, or with Venmo through PayPal.

  6. Mailing or calling in debit or credit card information is strictly prohibited. (Please see the Privacy Policy section below.)

  7. Clean Sweep Copy accepts compensation in only U.S. dollar amounts.
    * Clean Sweep Copy reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who does not meet or follow the payment guidelines.


Turnaround Times & Deadlines

Clients determine their preferred turnaround times and deadlines for services when they reach out to Clean Sweep Copy. If these requests are doable, Clean Sweep Copy will outline the specified turnaround times and deadlines in the free estimate. If the requests are not doable, Clean Sweep Copy will negotiate alternate turnaround times and deadlines with clients to ensure the best quality in a more appropriate time frame.
