LeanWriters Terms of Service
Leanwriters.com is a part of the Leanwriters Partnership Program. It is the online platform that matches a User and a Freelancer (usually referred to as “Writers”) upon request in order to provide particular services. These services include but are not limited to conducting research, helping with data entry and data collection, organizing surveys, performing analysis, proofreading and editing of content, giving consultations, providing tutoring, etc.
Freelancers act as Personal Assistants to a User and help with their one-time requests while LeanWriters is the platform itself which enables Users to connect with Freelancers online and via text, as well as conduct any transactions via our text interface as requested by Users.

All Freelancers that are members of the platform network agreed to follow LeanWriters Honor Code. LeanWriters has multiple layers of safety checks and moderation to make sure that none of our policies or relevant academic/company policies are violated, but LeanWriters shall not in any way be responsible for the service provided by Freelancers.
