Plagiarism Veritas does not condone or knowingly take part in plagiarism or any other acts of fraud. Neither Veritas nor its employees/contractors shall be liable for any illegal, unethical, or otherwise wrongful use of the reviews received from our website. You, and anyone who utilizes content from our website or content from our reviews, are solely responsible for any and all disciplinary actions arising from the improper, unethical, inappropriate and/or illegal use of the material.
Essay Review Orders By placing an order, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Veritas for any and all unauthorized use made of any material available from our company.

Veritas transfers all rights and ownership of the essays and reviews associated with a given order to the customer who placed that order, with the following exception: Veritas retains the right to use submitted essays, which have had personally identifying information removed, for internal training materials and outward-facing promotional materials.
Additionally, if asked to provide a word count for the essay that you submit for review, you certify that the word count that you provide is an accurate reflection of the "total number of words" in your essay, where the "total number of words" is calculated by counting up the total number of words that you have written in your essay. Note that the "total number of words" does not include the number of words in the prompt that you are responding to, nor is this the same number as the word limit of the prompt that you are responding to. If the word count provided by you is inaccurate, Veritas may refuse to conduct a review of your essay, or invoice you for additional charges.
By using the Essay Management Dashboard to submit an essay for review, you certify that only one essay is included in the file you submit for review, and that essay is responding to the prompt and school under which you have classified that essay in the Dashboard. Veritas may refuse to conduct a review of your essay, or invoice you for additional charges, if the content of the essay submitted for review via the Dashboard is not reflective of how it has been categorized within the Dashboard.
Delivery of Edited Essays Our reviews are returned to customers via email. Please note that an order is marked as "received" when the order is processed by our payment system, and sent to us by automated email, NOT the time at which the order was placed by the customer. The guaranteed turnaround time for an order starts when the order is marked as "received."
