If you do not agree and/or you are under the age of 18, please immediately cease use of our website and refrain from ordering any of our products and/or services.
Throughout this Policy, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” and “The Urban Writers” refer to Dibbly Inc. (trading as “The Urban Writers”). The Urban Writers offers this website, including all information, tools, goods and services available from us to you, the user.
Reasonable Efforts in Regards to Plagiarism
The Urban Writers provides professional writing services and as such, we have a high regard for quality and providing plagiarism-free content. We scan all products for plagiarism using Unicheck’s Plagiarism Checker (https://unicheck.com/) before making orders available for our customers to download from our platform. Additionally, we engage human editors who review documents to search for and address potential plagiarism. While we make reasonable efforts to protect our customers from potential plagiarism, we cannot guarantee that products and services will be 100% plagiarism free.
You will be given the opportunity to review your order during its production, and will be prompted to give your approval at the end of each phase of the order. It is incumbent upon you to ensure that the order is of the quality you expect in terms of its content and its lack of plagiarism. The Urban Writers does not take responsibility for the content, quality, or any potential plagiarism found in an order once you, the customer, has approved it.
The Urban Writers is dedicated to delivering quality content. Consequently, any plagiarism that is detected during the completion of a project, either by means of plagiarism-detection software, by The Urban Writers’ administrative team, or by an assigned editor, will lead to the immediate termination of the contractor responsible for such plagiarism. In such cases, The Urban Writers endeavors to offer its clients a full refund OR (but not AND) a reassignment and recompletion of the project at hand. Should plagiarism be detected in your order, our administrative team will reach out to you and offer you the following choices: A refund OR reassignment and recompletion of the order OR an acceptance of the found plagiarism which will result in the order continuing unimpeded.
While The Urban Writers makes all reasonable attempts to scan projects for plagiarism, and the first step of this process is a built-in feature of our Platform, the onus to ensure that the content is plagiarism free to the client’s satisfaction is on the client themselves. The Urban Writers highly recommends that its clients do their own plagiarism scans and ‘checks’ before submitting any and all projects for publication or distribution. It is crucial to note that publishing platforms like Amazon KDP may limit your account if plagiarism is found in one of your published works.
In the instance where a customer finds malicious plagiarism in a project created by one of The Urban Writers’ contractors, The Urban Writers endeavors to assign contractors to rework the offending content to the customer’s satisfaction. Should this be unfeasible due to penalties or restrictions already imposed by third party publishers, The Urban Writers shall issue a refund for the project.
