These Terms and Conditions shall apply to all consulting or other services provided by Point Road Group and/or Resume Strategists. Please read this carefully and in full.
The Purpose of these Terms & Conditions is to set forth the terms and conditions under which Resume Strategists, Inc. d/b/a Point Road Group (hereinafter referred to as “PRG”) will provide consulting or other services to corporate and individual clients (herein referred to as “Client”).
Client hires PRG to provide services related to corporate and personal branding. PRG provides services directly to Client only and these Terms & Conditions shall become effective on the date Client expresses acceptance, as follows: (a) Acceptance includes electronically signing a Proposal (for corporate clients) and paying a deposit or paying for services in full (if required by service selection); or (b) Acceptance includes electronically signing a Client Agreement (for individual clients) and paying a deposit or paying for services in full (if required by service selection).
In consideration of the mutual promises herein contained, the parties agree to the following terms and conditions. No other terms or conditions shall apply unless agreed to in writing by PRG and Client.
Service fees and the fee payment structure and schedule are outlined in the Proposal or Client Agreement submitted to Client. Signed acceptance of the Proposal or Client Agreement by Client indicates full acceptance of the specified service fees and the fee payment structure and schedule.
All fees are quoted in US Dollars (USD) and payments to PRG shall be made in USD regardless of country in which Client resides, operates or does business.
PRG accepts payment via ACH transfer (corporate clients only), Zelle digital payments network and Square credit card invoice. If indicated on Proposal or Client Agreement, PRG passes on payment of any vendor processing fees to Client. Client is also responsible for any processing fees assessed by their financial institution. Client will review options outlined in the Proposal or Client Agreement and select one method of payment for invoicing.
If Client requests additional services from PRG beyond what is included in the original signed Proposal or Client Agreement, PRG will provide a price quote and a Proposal Addendum or a second Client Agreement. Following signed acceptance, Client will be required to pay additional fees to proceed with additional services.
If priority services are requested, additional fees will be applied and included in the Proposal or Client Agreement. Priority services must be requested prior to signing the Proposal.
If Client fails to make payment (partial or full) by its due date, PRG reserves the right to postpone or suspend services until receipt of payment.
Unless otherwise indicated, execution of the Proposal or Client Agreement and payment of a deposit (if required) are due within 48 hours of receipt to secure the proposed date/time to commence services (defined as an initial video meeting, call or email exchange, depending on the service). If not received by the deadline, PRG reserves the right to release the proposed date/time and reschedule commencement of services to the next available date/time. The remaining fee balance is due in full upon commencement of services.
Fees paid to PRG by Client for services rendered are non-refundable.
The work performed by PRG for Client is limited to the description of work on the Proposal or Client Agreement.
PRG offers the experience and ability to perform the services based on Client’s needs and will be performed in a professional manner.
If material creation (including, but not limited to individual LinkedIn® profile, LinkedIn® company page description, resume, bio) are part of the services to be provided by PRG, they will be created based on information provided during Client meetings as well as information provided on other documents submitted by Client.
Client agrees to make reasonable efforts to be available by email (and phone or video meeting as needed) to respond to questions by PRG to clarify information, provide feedback or any additional information. Failure of Client to provide availability could result in delayed delivery of PRG services. Client shall be clear and specific when responding to all emails, phone calls or any other communication, to facilitate prompt completion of services.
PRG is not responsible for a missed deadline by Client if Client has been late in supplying information, feedback or approval of work during at any stage of the process.
PRG operating hours are Monday to Friday 9 AM to 5 PM EST. PRG is not available to Clients during evenings, weekends or holidays.
Turnaround time for services vary, depending on what is outlined in the Proposal or Client Agreement. Priority (rush) services are also available for an additional fee and must be requested by Client prior to signing the Proposal.
If resume or bio creation is part of the services being provided to Client, the first draft will be sent to Client via email five (5) to seven (7) business days (excluding holidays and weekends) after the day of the initial meeting. PRG will make every effort to deliver the draft sooner whenever possible.
Proposals and Client Agreements represent work-for-hire agreements and shall expire automatically on completion of contracted services.
PRG schedules a limited number of Clients within any given timeframe in order to provide superior service and quality excellence to Client throughout the engagement. Accordingly, to protect interests of PRG, Client agrees to accept and be bound by the following expiration and reactivation policies, which Client agrees are fair and reasonable:
If PRG is creating a resume or bio for Client and Client fails to provide edits to the emailed first or any subsequent draft of the document after twelve (12) business days, but no more than three (3) calendar months, that version of the resume or bio will be considered the final version by both parties. No edits will be made after that time without incurring a $425 reactivation fee, unless Client provides prior written notice upon immediate receipt of the most recent draft that they will not be able to meet the deadline.
If Client does not respond to emails or voicemail from PRG after three (3) calendar months, the Client Agreement will expire due to inactivity. No remaining services (including material creation) will be completed without incurring a reactivation fee of $875, unless Client provides prior written notice requesting postponement of services.
For any reactivation fee assessed, PRG will email invoice to Client to initiate payment using the payment method originally selected on the Client Agreement. The reactivation fee must be received by PRG prior to reactivation of services.
The date for reactivation of services will be subject to PRG availability and may not be immediate.
If resume or bio creation is part of the services provided to Client, Client is entitled to unlimited revisions prior to authorization to finalize document.
If creation of a LinkedIn® profile is part of the services provided to Client, documents are provided as final versions. Minor changes can be discussed and made during Client’s follow-up meeting or next coaching session.
Client is responsible for fact-checking all information in documents created or reviewed by PRG, with special focus, but not limited to, job titles, company names, office locations, dates in positions, degrees and certifications, graduation years and client/customer names.
Client represents and affirms that all information provided to PRG is true and correct and does not omit any material information, and Client is responsible for completeness of any documentation. PRG is not liable to Client or any other party for any injury or damage caused by omissions, false statements or other inaccuracies.
Final proofreading of any materials created or reviewed by PRG is the responsibility of Client.
Final approval of a resume or bio must be authorized by Client and provided in writing via email. If the services purchased by Client also include creation of a LinkedIn® profile, this document will not be created until the resume or bio is approved and finalized. If Client is receiving multiple materials (e.g., resume, bio and LinkedIn profile content), they will be created sequentially, not simultaneously.
If Client would like to update materials previously written or reviewed by PRG (e.g., resume, LinkedIn® profile, bio), Client will contact PRG to discuss the update. An additional fee will be required to update materials and the amount will depend on the nature of the update, amount of time that has elapsed since the client last worked with PRG and the materials Client would like to update. A fee quote will be provided to Client and a new Proposal or Client Agreement will be sent for electronic signature.
PRG provides all materials to Client via email in Microsoft Word document only. PDF format may be provided when requested. Client is responsible for ensuring proper formatting of their documents on their own devices (e.g., Client may be using an older version of Word on an older operating system thus it is Client’s responsibility to ensure proper display).
