Client hires PRG to provide services only to Client directly and these Terms & Conditions shall become effective on the date the Client expresses acceptance, as follows: (a) Acceptance for corporate clients includes electronically signing a Program Proposal and paying a deposit or paying for services in full (if required by service selection); and (b) Acceptance for individual clients includes electronically signing a Client Agreement 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. 

  

Fees & Payment

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 from Client via ACH transfer and Square credit card invoice. 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 and select one method of payment for invoicing.

  • Square (credit card): PRG will email invoice to Client to initiate credit card payment through Square. A processing charge (Square’s fee) will be added to the total amount invoiced for any PRG services or fees. 

If Client requests additional services from PRG beyond what is included in the original signed Proposal, PRG will provide a price quote and a Proposal Addendum. 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. 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. 

 

Individual Clients

Service fees are discussed with a member of the PRG team during an initial consultation and the fee payment structure and schedule are outlined in the Client Agreement. Signed acceptance of the Client Agreement indicates Client’s full acceptance of the specified service fees and 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 works or resides. 

PRG accepts payment from Client via Zelle digital payments network, ACH transfer and Square credit card invoice. 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 Client Agreement and select one method of payment for invoicing. 

  • Zelle: PRG will email invoice to Client to initiate Zelle payments through Client’s financial institution or Zelle app. Invoice will specify deposit and balance payment due dates. Financial institution participation and daily transfer limits may vary. US accounts only. See eligibility at https://www.zellepay.com/get-started 
  • ACH Transfer: PRG will email invoice with account/routing information to Client to initiate ACH transfer payments through Client’s financial institution. A processing charge (ACH transfer fee) will be added to the total amount invoiced for any PRG service or fee. Invoice will specify deposit and balance due dates. 
  • Square (credit card): PRG will email invoice to Client to initiate credit card payment through Square. A processing charge (Square’s fee) will be added to the total amount invoiced for any PRG service or fee. Invoice will specify deposit and balance due dates. 

Unless otherwise indicated, execution of the Client Agreement and payment of a deposit (if required) are due upon receipt (within 48 hours) to secure the proposed date/time to commence services (defined as an initial 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.  

If priority services are requested, additional fees (starting at $400) will be applied and will be quoted to Client during the initial consultation. Priority services must be requested prior to signing the Client Agreement. 

If Client requests additional services beyond what is included in the original Client Agreement, PRG will provide a price quote via email and Client will be required to pay additional charges before receiving the additional services. If the additional services are requested after the initial engagement has ended, Client will be provided with a new Client Agreement for electronic signature, indicating acceptance of the additional fees. 

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. 

 

Refunds & Cancellations

Fees paid to PRG by all individual and corporate clients for services rendered are non-refundable. 

Corporate Clients

Cancellation provisions in advance or after commencement of services are included in the engagement Proposal and a signed Proposal by Client indicates acceptance of all terms. 

Individual Clients

Cancellation of an initial meeting within 3 calendar days’ notice severely limits the ability of PRG to schedule another Client in the reserved timeslot, thereby causing revenue loss. In addition, as PRG allows significant internal time per Client for all service offerings to provide superior service and quality excellence, PRG may have to delay or to turn away other potential Clients to allow ample time per scheduled Client. Accordingly, Client agrees to accept and be bound to the following cancellation policies, which Client agrees are fair and reasonable: 

If Client cancels an initial scheduled meeting once the deposit is paid and the Client Agreement is signed, the deposit will not be refunded.

 

Services

Expectations

The work performed by PRG for Client is limited to the description of work on the Proposal (Corporate Client) or Client Agreement (Individual Client). 

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 telephone if necessary) 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

Corporate Clients

Individual Clients

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. 

Expiration and Reactivation

Corporate Proposals and Individual 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 and protect against potential revenue loss, 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 $400 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 materials) will be completed without incurring a reactivation fee of $850, 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.

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 during the initial discussion about the update and a new Client Agreement will be sent for electronic signature.
