Your Account

You will be required to create an account with Report Alliance in order to request services or access certain areas of the site. Your username and password are for your personal use only. If you use the site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and password and for restricting access to your computer, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account. By creating an account with Report Alliance, you accept all of the terms, conditions, limitations and requirements detailed in our Terms of Use.

If Report Alliance identifies an issue with your account, including any related to your payment method or shipping address, and we are unable to resolve it ourselves, we will notify you promptly through the email address associated with your account and any current orders may be placed on hold or canceled. Even if a particular order is canceled, your account with Report Alliance will remain in effect and we will attempt to process future orders once you have resolved the problem with your account.

If you need to modify your Report Alliance account, you can do so at any time by logging in to the Report Alliance site or by contacting us directly. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that your account information is accurate and up to date.

Your Orders and Payment

A valid credit card is required to order services through the Report Alliance website. PayPal and Venmo cannot be used for orders at this time. Your credit card will be charged when you submit your order.

If you wish to order any service made available through the site, you may be asked to supply certain information relevant to your order, including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card and the related CVV number. YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU HAVE THE LEGAL RIGHT TO USE ANY CREDIT CARD(S) OR OTHER PAYMENT METHOD(S) UTILIZED IN CONNECTION WITH ANY TRANSACTION. By submitting such information, you grant to Report Alliance the right to provide such information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of all orders initiated by you or on your behalf.

All descriptions, images, references, features, content, specifications, products and prices of services described or depicted on the site are subject to change at any time without notice. Report Alliance reserves the right, with or without prior notice, to do any one or more of the following: (i) discontinue any service; (ii) bar any user from submitting or completing any or all orders; and (iii) refuse to provide any user with any service. You agree to pay all charges that may be incurred by you or on your behalf through the site, at the prices in effect when such charges are incurred, including, without limitation, all shipping and delivery charges.

Estimated charges for each order will vary based on the information that you provide to us, including, but not limited to, the total number of pages within your report, the service(s) selected and whether you require expedited turnaround. You represent and warrant that such information is accurate at the time of your order submission. Furthermore, if it is determined after your submission that the charges require revision (due to inaccuracies in the number of pages reported, misinformation, missing details, missing files, etc.), you authorize Report Alliance to adjust the order accordingly and process any additional charges arising from these inaccuracies prior to fulfilling your order. Mistakes or obvious errors within your order are in no way binding for Report Alliance, and we are in no way responsible for determining such mistakes or errors prior to processing your order.

A confirmation email will be sent to you shortly after your order submission with your order details, including total charges and turnaround time. If warranted, any revised charges will be communicated to you via a second email as soon as possible thereafter, and will be reflected in your total charges on your credit card statement. You can also view details of each order, including initial charges and any adjustments, by visiting your Dashboard via your Report Alliance account.

When ordering services through our site, you acknowledge that, in rare instances, an order may be returned later than the estimated turnaround or delivery time. If you do not provide accurate order or contact information, or if you do not respond promptly when we request further information, we cannot be responsible for delays in providing requested services. However, in other circumstances, Report Alliance may offer a partial or full refund at our sole discretion, per our quality guarantee. In all cases, we accept no responsibility or liability for any damages or losses incurred due to the late delivery of your order.

Your Privacy

You acknowledge that Report Alliance may use your personal information and data according to our Privacy Policy, which is incorporated herein by this reference. You hereby agree to the terms of our Privacy Policy, including any obligations imposed on you therein.

Confidentiality

Report Alliance strives for the utmost client confidentiality by protecting all client information and files submitted through our site via SSL encryption; securely disposing of report files within six months of order completion; and having our employees sign a general non-disclosure agreement that automatically governs each report submission from receipt to completion.

Quality Guarantee

Report Alliance is committed to providing the highest levels of quality and professionalism to our clients. If you determine, in good faith, based upon the information submitted within your original order, that your financial report, either electronic or bound, does not meet your expectations or substantially conform to the specifications noted in your order, please contact us within five (5) business days of the completion of your order with: (a) written notice of your rejection of such report, in good faith, for the failure of such report to substantially conform to your specifications, and (b) all information and assistance reasonably necessary for Report Alliance to correct such nonconformity. If you fail to provide any such written notice to Report Alliance within this applicable period, this shall automatically constitute acceptance of such report.

Upon receipt of written notice of your good-faith rejection of any report, Report Alliance shall attempt to correct the nonconformity, at our expense, and resubmit such report to you, at which point the acceptance procedure set forth above shall be repeated until such report conforms to your order specifications.

In the event that we ultimately decide that we are unable to reasonably meet expectations for your order, our quality guarantee may result in a partial or full refund of the total charges paid by you to engage our service(s) within the order in question. Under no circumstances will a refund ever be in excess of the total charges paid for the related service(s). Any and all refunds are at our sole discretion.
