This Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into by and between [Client Name] (“Client”) and Dacia “Dee” DeRidder / MissFitChicago (“Service Provider”), effective as of the date that the Client replies with “I agree” to this Agreement.
1. Disclaimer: MissFitChicago does not provide financial, legal, tax, or career advice of any kind, and cannot guarantee that all information provided is accurate, complete, or up to date. While we make every effort to ensure accuracy, MissFitChicago and its representatives make no claims, promises, or guarantees regarding the information provided. Dee and MissFitChicago assume no responsibility for any person who relies on the information provided and disclaim all liability regarding such information. MissFitChicago does not assume and hereby disclaims any liability to any party for any loss, damage, or disruption caused by errors or omissions, whether such errors or omissions result from accident, negligence, or any other cause. MissFitChicago also does not guarantee specific career outcomes, such as job placements, promotions, salary increases, or other employment-related results. The services provided are intended for guidance and support only. Clients are encouraged to seek additional professional advice tailored to their specific circumstances. Furthermore, MissFitChicago is not responsible for any decisions made based on the information provided, including but not limited to, employment, educational, or personal decisions. Any reliance on the information supplied by MissFitChicago is solely at the client’s own risk.
2. MissFitChicago makes every effort to ensure the accuracy and quality of the resumes we create. However, it is ultimately the client’s responsibility to provide truthful, complete, and accurate information. MissFitChicago cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies, misrepresentations, or omissions in the information provided by the client. Clients are advised to review their resumes thoroughly and verify that all details are correct before submission to potential employers. MissFitChicago disclaims any liability for any consequences arising from inaccuracies or errors in the resumes, including but not limited to, job application rejections, employment termination, or legal issues.
3. Services: The Service Provider agrees to provide educational coaching and resume writing services to the Client. If the deliverables are undefined, an hourly rate of $200 will be established and communicated to the Client. The services shall be provided in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and any other documents incorporated herein by reference.
4. Payment: The Client shall pay the Service Provider a fee for the services in advance, as specified in the invoice issued by the Service Provider. The fee will be based on either the agreed-upon deliverables or the established hourly rate. All fees are non-refundable, regardless of the outcome of the services. The Client acknowledges that once payment is made, no refunds will be issued, and all sales are final.
5. Emergency: Urgent career or resume needs can arise, particularly during holidays or weekends. While I strive to accommodate all requests, please be aware that any work required during holidays or weekends is subject to availability and will incur a non-negotiable surcharge of $150 for these urgent services. During weekdays, any resume request that requires a turnaround time of less than two business days will also incur a non-negotiable surcharge of $150, unless otherwise specified in the proposal. Clients are encouraged to provide as much advance notice as possible to ensure timely service.
6. The Client acknowledges that resume writing services are custom-made and cannot be returned or refunded.
7. Termination Clause: The Service Provider, MissFitChicago, retains the right to terminate the relationship with the Client at any time. Should the Service Provider elect to terminate the agreement, the Client is obligated to pay for all services provided up to the point of termination. Refunds will be issued to the original source of payment. Please note, payments via checks are not accepted under any circumstances.
8. Dispute Resolution. In the event of a dispute arising under the terms of this Agreement, the parties agree to seek arbitration through Thumbtack or Fiverr if the platform is involved in the contracting of services. In cases where Thumbtack is not involved, disputes shall first be attempted to be resolved through mediation in accordance with the laws and requirements of Cook County, Illinois. This mediation process is intended to provide a less formal, expedient, and cost-effective resolution method before any further legal actions are pursued.
9. Service Delivery: The timely delivery of the final product is highly dependent on the Client’s availability during business hours to provide feedback and request revisions. Any delays in providing feedback or requesting revisions will directly impact the final product delivery timeline. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the proposal, this agreement includes up to three (3) minor revisions at no additional cost. Minor revisions are defined as changes that do not require substantial rewriting or reworking of the document. Any further revisions beyond the three minor revisions will incur a fee of $199 per revision. The standard turnaround time for revisions is two business days but this may vary based on the scope of the requested changes. This fee accounts for the extra time and resources required to implement further changes.
10. Client Responsibilities: The client agrees to provide all information and materials necessary for the Service Provider to provide the services. This includes, but is not limited to, accurate and complete information about employment history, education, and professional qualifications.
11. Confidentiality: The Service Provider agrees to keep all information provided by the Client confidential, except as required by law. Client agrees that any information provided to Service Provider may be used to provide the services. In addition to maintaining the confidentiality of the information provided by the Client, the Service Provider commits to exerting best efforts to protect the Client’s personal and sensitive information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. This includes implementing and maintaining appropriate physical, technical, and administrative safeguards to secure such information. The Service Provider will comply with all applicable data protection laws and regulations in the processing of personal data. In the event of a data breach involving the Client’s personal information, the Service Provider shall promptly notify the Client and take reasonable steps to mitigate the effects and to protect the information from further breach.
12. Disclaimer of Warranties: Service Provider makes no warranties or guarantees, express or implied, regarding the results of the services provided. Client understands and agrees that the success of any job search depends on many factors beyond the control of Service Provider, including but not limited to market conditions, competition, and the actions of potential employers.
13. Limitation of Liability: Service Provider shall not be liable for any damages arising from the provision of the services, including but not limited to indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages. Service Provider shall not be liable for missed deadlines or outcomes related to the services provided. Client agrees that the total liability of Service Provider, regardless of the form of action, shall not exceed the total amount paid by Client for the services.
14. Governing Law: This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois.
15. Entire Agreement: This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings, whether written or oral, relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.
16. Buyer Warranties: Buyer warrants that they are 18 years of age or older.
