Mbizer may suspend or terminate your access to the Service or an Order if you do not comply with this TOS or if we suspect misconduct, fraudulent activities or payment, or a violation of this TOS, with or without notice. Mbizer may modify or suspend the Platform or Service, at any time for any reason.
3. ORDERS, APPROVAL, RETURN POLICY
Payment. Before initiating an Order, Customer must prepay for the Services you desire to purchase.
Mbizer will apply gross-up calculation to the payment. This means that the payment to Mbizer must be made in cleared funds, without any deduction or set-off and free and clear of and without deduction for or on account of any taxes, levies, imports, duties, charges, fees and withholdings of any nature now or hereafter imposed by any governmental, fiscal or other authority save as required by law. If you are compelled to make any such deduction, you will pay Mbizer any additional amounts as are necessary to ensure receipt by Mbizer of the full amount it would have received but for the deduction.
Customer can initiate an Order by providing all the required information via the Platform, including the quality level, either basic or advanced, for your translation. As the customer, you are responsible for prepaying for the correct number of words. Mbizer will allow for a difference of 20 words in the event that there is a miscount of the number of words and prepayment is insufficient. For example, if you pay for 800 words but the document contains 820 words then the entire document will be translated. However if you pay for 800 words and the document contains 850 words, then only the first 820 words in the document will be translated.
Client Materials. Customer is responsible for providing the Client Materials to be translated, materials describing the context of the translation, and all other necessary materials (glossary guide, etc.) when placing the Order. Mbizer may make recommendations on which source materials and in what format to provide source materials, but ultimately the quality of the results will depend on the clarity, accuracy, and comprehensiveness of the Customer’s source materials and instructions provided.
Cancellations. Customer can cancel any Order if the project has not yet been engaged by a Translator. It is not uncommon for an Order to be engaged by a Translator immediately after the Order is placed. To attempt to cancel an Order, Customer can click the “cancel button” on the Job Details page while awaiting a Translator, or contact Mbizer customer support directly at email@example.com to inquire if the Order can be cancelled. If the Order has been picked up by a Translator, the Order cannot be cancelled and there will be no refund of credits.
Delivery of Translated Works. Mbizer cannot guarantee that a particular Translator or that any Translator will choose to engage on your Order. If the Order is completed by a Translator, Mbizer will return the Translated Works to Customers according to the quality level specified in the Order. Estimated delivery for Simple Translation is 1 day per 10,000 words. Estimated delivery for Advanced Translation is 1 day per 1,000 words.
Mbizer gives an estimated time for Service completion, but cannot guarantee an exact delivery time. We will email you when the Translated Works are ready for your review. Unless otherwise expressly agreed by Mbizer, time is not of the essence for delivery or performance, and no delay shall entitle you to reject any delivery.
Approval or Rejection. Upon Mbizer’s notification of delivery of the Translated Works, Customer will have strictly 72 hours to review the Translated Works. Customer may approve the Translated Works via the Platform. If Customer does not take action via the Platform within the 72-hour review period, the Translated Works will be deemed “Approved” and the Translator will be paid for the Translated Works. Once “Approved”, no alterations, revisions, or refunds of the Translated Works will be provided.
Due to the nature of language translation, errors in translations will inevitably occur. Customers may reject the Translated Works within the 72-hour review period if it reasonably determines that it does not meet the Quality Level that was ordered. We will perform a quality audit and typically get back to you within one business day of the rejection. If Mbizer determines that the Translated Works that you have rejected did not meet the quality level specified in the Order, then Mbizer will honor the rejection and provide a retranslation or allow the Order to be cancelled.
Mbizer’s liability will be limited to correcting the errors or providing refund.
Disclaimer. You agree to review any Translated Works before making such content public, and you expressly agree that Mbizer will not have any liability or indemnity obligations to you based on the Translated Works if you fail to do so.
