The only exception to this rule is that the customer does not under any circumstance provide Content Clerks with a new directive after we have already worked on a draft. Rewrites are not free and although we take full responsibility for the overall quality of the content we produce, our customers are responsible for being as clear as possible with us per the ideas that they want us to write about.
** Content Clerks will always source research, citations, and images using best practices; however, once content is approved, it is the customer’s responsibility to confirm sourcing, copyright, and attributions prior to publishing.
If, after the Trial Blog Post, the Purchasing Customer would like to continue with receiving content from Content Clerkss, they can then select a content subscription plan that best fits their needs. Our content subscriptions are available via our website or your Content Clerks Sales Rep.

Content Clerks offers monthly content subscriptions as well as discounts for quarterly and annual payments, paid up front.

Content Clerks will fully complete all services listed in Section 2 above for all deliverables. All content plans will automatically renew based on the customer’s subscription agreement thereafter.
To cancel your subscription, you can simply contact us in writing via the customer portal or email your project manager directly.
* To be valid, all cancellations of subscriptions must be submitted in writing at least 7 days before your next billing date, which will be 7 days before your plan renews (on or prior to 11:59 PM EST, USA). If your cancellation request is not submitted 7 days before your renewal date, then your next order will not be eligible for cancellation and will automatically renew. After this, your content subscription will be cancelled.
** If Purchasing Customer fails to cancel their content subscription within the allotted time period and refuses to pay their current invoice, any unused credits on the Purchasing Customer’s plan will be used to pay the remaining balance and the content subscription will be automatically cancelled.
