Who We Are
This Website is an online freelance platform where Customers can find freelance Writers who can provide high resume, СV, cover letters, Linkedin Profiles etc. As a platform, We ensure delivery of the services by Writers and payment to Writers by Customers. On this Website, Customers can find Writers with the skills required for their job and who meet their budget, turnaround time, and other requirements like originality of content.
How It Works
The contents on this website (the “site”) are provided by Boosta Inc OÜ (hereinafter referred to as “We”, “Us”, “Our”), registered under the law of Estonia, located at Peterburi tee 47, Tallinn city, Harju county, 11415, Estonia.
By using this site / placing an order / making payment, it is deemed that You have read and agreed to the following Terms and Conditions. If You do not agree to them, do not use the site or access the services from it.
Writers are freelancers and are free to apply for an account. Every Writer needs to pass internal tests prior to being able to take orders. Every Writer has his or her own rating. Customers can place an order by following the order process for the specific job which Writers would perform. Once Writers accept these requirements to perform the job, it will be their responsibility to complete the job within the agreed time and ensure the quality.
Once the job is complete and payment is made by the Customer, Writers transfer all rights and ownership of the products to the Customer.

Providing an incorrect email address is a violation of the Terms and Conditions of this agreement. In addition, You can also use your Facebook ID* to register on the site (*if available).
You also understand and agree that the Services may include certain communications from Us, such as service announcements, administrative messages, and updates.
A Writer specializing in a field chosen by the Customer, contacts the Customer right after the job was assigned. The Writer is responsible for obtaining the detailed list of instructions for the job to be successfully completed. Once a Writer’s bid is accepted, the Customer deposits the agreed amount of money with our site.
We use a messaging system for communication. Our Support Team as Well as Writers use a messaging system to get any information on updates regarding the job. Please check the inbox regularly and promptly address any questions, concerns, or additional instructions using this interactive feature.
You are not allowed to disclose and share any personal information (including e-mail address or phone number) with Writers asking them to work directly with You outside our service. Messages containing fraudulent words and word-phrases will be automatically blocked by our system and will not be visible to the Writer. In case You were caught by sharing personal information, the order will be automatically “Finished” with no further investigation or compensation option. We consider such cases as an attempt to scam our service.
When a job order is created by a Customer, both the Customer and the Writer can use the tracking system to know the progress of the job. We also reflect the status and percentage of work completed. When You upload, submit, store, send, or receive files with text information to or accept similar reports from Our Services, You give/grant to Us (Our representatives, agents, employers) a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable license to use, host, store, reproduce, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations, or other changes), You communicate such content.

Payment, Tax and Chargeback
Placing an order on the site for any job/project is free. However, You must fund the project after You accept the bid of a Writer. You can also add money to your store balance any time to use this money for new orders. You shall release the agreed fee on completion and delivery of the work by the Writer and once it is accepted by You; either in stages or in one lump sum on completion of the entire project, based on the terms of your agreement with the Writer. After the final document was uploaded (100% completion is stated in your order) You have 3 days to send us any complaints or revision requests. We send You additional email after 3 days have passed to remind about the order’s payment. If there are no complaints sent by You using any of the available methods of contact, the money will be released to the writer automatically on the 4th day after the deadline as this is a part of Our Writers’ protection. Please, review your order carefully before releasing the full amount of money reserved for the order. Once the entire agreed sum is received by the Writer, it is deemed that the work is complete and is to your satisfaction; therefore, no refund will be possible.
If You do not plan to use Our services further, We will be allowed to withdraw the money after sending an appropriate request. We ensure fund withdrawal from the User’s account upon request, if such a request is made within a year from the last order date. If You use money from your balance after the request was sent to Us, We reserve the right to reject your request and close the ticket. If You have previously cancelled the order and money was returned to your balance, We reserve the right to investigate the reason of cancellation and make a decision to either approve or decline your withdrawal request based on the results of this investigation. If money on your balance has never been used before, We will refund it within 3-10 business days after the request is placed.

Money Back Guarantee
We assess refund requests on a case-by-case basis as there are usually unique reasons why a refund request is made. Please note, We may require documented proof that the quality of your order is low (e.g., scanned copy of your instructor’s feedback, plagiarism report, etc.). Should You feel it necessary to make a refund request, We will immediately send your order to “Under investigation” and forward it to Our Quality Assurance Department (QA).After comparing their findings with the reasons for dissatisfaction, the necessary corrective actions will be taken. In case We reimburse the money because of mistakes or some irrelevance to the initial instructions, our QA Department, at its sole discretion, evaluates the quality of the paper and refunds an amount comparable to the percentage of incorrect content in the paper and mistakes present in it.
We provide various methods of contact (i.e. email, telephone, message board, and live chat) to facilitate communication between You, Us, and the Writer assigned to complete an order. Our Customer Support Center is available to You at any time via any of these methods and will respond to any refund request or other issue promptly.
