Fivesquid Service Terms and Conditions

  • Buyers must own the necessary rights to supply the audio or video and permit the transcription of the same.
  • This service is offered only in the advertised blocks of time. Refunds are not available where media is shorter than the sum total of the time purchased.
  • Where the buyer requires a service that differs from the advertised offering (e.g., with timestamps, higher grade etc.) this must only be arranged by custom proposal.
  • Service turnaround times are strictly as advertised and I will be under no obligation to provide a faster service, except where agreed prior to purchase.
  • I will not transcribe media containing explicit adult content (i.e., sexual acts) or illegal activities (except where verifiably provided by a police officer, solicitor or other legal professional, operating in accordance with that profession).
  • Whilst every effort will be made to transcribe all audio in line with the grade offered, I accept no liability where I am unable to decipher what is said no matter how significant, sustained or frequent such sections may be. This may include (but is not limited to) audio that is quiet, muffled, rushed, obscured by noise, obscured by interference or obscured by cross-talk. It may also include (but is not limited to) unclear or unfamiliar names, organisations or places and languages other than English. Such sections will be marked for your review.
