VII. Service Description

The OxenMINE.com Site hires third party private contractors to provide service.
It provides a forum for customers to register, create a profile and post questions on the website. Additionally they can purchase tutorials upon the questions already posted by other users in the past. They may choose to receive the full tutorial or part thereof, as was chosen from the plentitude of options provided to the customer during the stage of adding the tutorial to the electronic cart.

OxenMINE.com upon receiving an order (or sale) deploys a contractor (oxenMINE specialised tutor) that we deem fit (or on a first come first served basis) to provide solutions/tutorials to the question asked. The website is a venue for informal discussion – and with an informational, or educational purpose. OxenMINE.com does not agree to try to answer every question, it may choose to ignore or deny service to any customer for any reason. The private contractors provide tutorials/solutions to the questions posted, comments and content in posts. They are not employees or agents of the website.

The communication process happens between only the customer and OxenMINE.com. In certain circumstances we may feel the need to and may allow for a direct communication between the tutor and the customer. OxenMINE.com strives to provide the best tutorials it can source to its customers, by restricting the award of tutoring contracts only to advanced degree holders, reputed lecturers and professors. Besides we also offer the option to avail reduced and less costlier help for most questions, thereby enabling focus on certain areas of the assignment while neglecting the others – this also acts a measure to check students’ handing in the help they receive from our services as such – especially in proctored projects; this also enables us to prevent our tutors from violating their own copyrights.

However, OxenMINE.com is not liable for any unintended discrepancies, mistakes, faults, omissions, or otherwise unsuitable content in any form or communication. oxenMINE is also not able to check violations of its copyright policies and the copyrights and intellectual property rights of others – unless we are notified. We act very quickly in instances where there has been an alleged copyright violation – and it is brought to our notice – specially since we pride and market ourselves as one of the few genuine sources of original academic help. Please visit the Copyright Violation page found elsewhere on the website for details about proceeding with a report (please go here).

We also cannot confirm any or verify the veracity of the content provided to you by OxenMINE.com, its guidance or advice. Therefore the usage of the tutorials, posts, advice in comments, messages, forums or emails is totally at your own risk, and your own discretion.

There is an expectation of payment from the customers to start the process of developing and receiving a tutorial. OxenMINE.com strives to respond to every query, question or tutorial in the shortest possible time frame, however a delay in providing solutions may occur – and any loss or damage arising from such a delay or others is not a responsibility of OxenMINE.com. OxenMINE.com may refuse to answer any questions it finds is a part of a test or a quiz – and prohibits its users from posting such questions on its website. OxenMINE.com may also refuse to answer any question whatsoever for any reason it deems fit – in such cases, if a payment has been made, guaranteed no outstanding debts on the account, all payments will be refunded partially/in full as is deemed fit by OxenMINE.com.
OxenMINE.com also reserves the right, but is not obligated, to refuse to post or to remove any content from its servers at its discretion.

If you are a California resident, you agree to waive the following Code –
California Civil Code §1542, that states: “A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR.”

XIV. Payments for services.

OxenMINE.com offers users a choice between ‘PAYPAL’ and ‘Google Checkout’ for payment in lieu of its services. Therefore we do not collect or solicit credit card information of any of our users.
Customers may elect to use the website in either of the following two ways:
1. Short term help (Ask-a-Question)
i) As opposed to a subscription, this option is for users to ask a question as they please, and specify a dollar amount they would like to offer for the solution and a deadline.
ii) Once the question is submitted, OxenMINE.com reviews the question and the amount offered, along with the deadline.
iii) In case the amount is not significant enough as compared to the resources the question requires, the amount required in dollars is raised to an acceptable figure by OxenMINE.com, and the user is prompted to the new offer. In case the deadline cannot be met the deadline will be postponed to a later date and time. We may or may not be able to communicate such changes upon deadlines with the user – because of changing workloads – and you accept this condition as is. You should not post a question at all if you need the solution within a certain time frame since we cannot guarantee as to when a solution will be provided. We try our best at all times though.

iv) If the user decides to accept the higher price offer, he would have to complete the transaction using the invoice (or a payment button) attached, through PAYPAL or Google Checkout for work to start on the solution.

v) The user will be provided with solutions over email as a download link to click on, valid for after the deadline set for the question by oxenMINE.com, or attached with the email sent to the user.
vi) The user (or the customer) may request a revision of the work handed to him. A request for revision, if granted, is usually completed in ten business days or less. A user does not have a right to a revision of the solutions submitted to him.
vii) A user does not have a right to a refund of the money once paid for the solutions submitted to him. Requests for refunds are still entertained at support@oxenMINE.com, with valid reasons. The question must also be referenced, and any needed information must be provided with the email. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that any mailings from oxenMINE, including those of information and those containing the tutorials bought by the user do not end up in SPAM folder or are lost otherwise. Additionally oxenMINE is not responsible for any damages resulting from such a loss. It is the user’s responsibility to inform and direct oxenMINE to resend any tutorials or emails they did not receive.
viii) A user may ask as many questions as he desires.
ix) OxenMINE.com may reject any question for any or no reason.
2. Long term help (‘Get-an-OX’):
i) A subscription like option for users desiring periodic, long term help during the course of his studies or over the duration of his course.
ii) Customers seeking to avail of this scheme need to complete the concerned forms on the page “Get-an-ox!” and elsewhere on the website.
iii) After supplying any and all further information OxenMINE.com needs to evaluate your needs, you will be offered an enrollment in a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly subscription – with a suggested rate per time period.
iv) If based on your prior experience, and at your sole discretion, you decide to enroll in the subscription, the set and decided rate – which will be more if the class is hard and vice-versa – will be charged to your paypal account or your Google-checkout account, at the determined frequency (weekly/bi weekly etc).
v) OxenMINE.com reserves the right to suspend, terminate and otherwise modify the terms of the agreement for the scheme “Get an OX” or in general, for any reason or none, at its sole discretion. In such cases, if you are not agreeable to all of the changes OxenMINE.com has newly made, the only two remedies for you are aa) to discontinue using the “Get an Ox” scheme and stick with the question/answer format bb) to discontinue using the website altogether.
vi) In the event of an early termination, a prorated refund may be offered for any unused sums. There is no refund for money already utilized for tutorials made in past, as well as in current stages of formation.
vii) Owing to a shortage in skilled tutors, at the same time showing appreciation for the loyalty of customers enrolling in the “Get-an-Ox” program, typically such users will be served over and above everyone else.
viii) Deposits made under this scheme do not accrue interest.
ix) The intent of this scheme is for OxenMINE.com to reward customers for their loyalty and generate regular business for itself.
x) Regardless of the rate oxenMINE sets for your subscription – per any given time period, there is a limitation of 4 hours of service per subscription per week. In other words, the time allocated to you by oxenMINE after you enroll in our subscription is currently limited to 4 hours every week. Additional hours if required will be charged on a prorated basis. Therefore this clause limits how much help you can receive in terms of hours from oxenMINE per hour per subscription.

XV. Refunds

i) A user does not have a right to a refund of the money once paid for the solutions submitted to him. Requests for refunds are still entertained at support@oxenMINE.com, with valid reasons. The question must also be referenced, and any needed information must be provided with the email.
ii) Customers enrolled in the “Get an Ox” scheme are entitled to a refund of any money that has not yet been utilized for making tutorials. Money paid and utilized for tutorials already made and tutorials being made are not refunded under any circumstances.

PROCESSING TIME. OxenMINE.com seeks a processing time of 40 days after your notice has been received at one of our addresses. This time allows us to do some fact-finding, ascertaining and devising a remedy to the issue such that it best favors both parties.
If there is no yield after the ‘processing time’ has elapsed, you agree to filing a “Request for Online Mediation for Small Claims” with the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”)
Alternatively if the Small Claims limit is superseded, a Request for Mediation may be filed with AAA, with active efforts aimed at a resolution.
If further assistance is resolved, you agree to submit a ‘Demand for Arbitration’ through AAA. You also agree to be bound to this arbitration. The decision of the arbitrator would be enforceable in any court of competent jurisdiction.
FAULTY or NON-SPECIFIC CLAIMS.
Because OxenMINE.com has laid out a procedure for redressal – as above, all claims and disputes must be resolved as set forth above.
A dispute would be “faulty” or “non-specific” should the above mentioned procedure not have been followed, and will entitle oxenMINE.com to reasonable attorney fees and costs, if you have been notified in writing at the contact email address on file with oxenMINE.com about the faulty claim and you have failed to correct the faulty claim.
PROHIBITION OF CLASS ACTION SUITS; WAIVER.
By agreeing to these terms and using the website you concur that there would be no class action claims or proceedings against oxenMINE.com. Likewise no consolidations or joinders are allowed in any controversy, dispute or claim. Also that no claims are allowed or may be made through a process said to be representing a group, class, or type of oxenMINE.com users or claiming to be on behalf of a class (“Waiver”).
If the most recently mentioned waiver is deemed irrelevant, the clause of arbitration will be nullified, and the parties may file a complaint in courts located in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.
The sides will also agree to waive any and all jurisdictional, venue or inconvenient forum or location objections.

XXIII. Copyright and DMCA provisions.

Please read up on the copyright policy found elsewhere on the website for additional information (please go here).

We started oxenMINE.com to give students an alternative to the numerous (in the thousands) assignment markets that you can find on the internet today. Their apparent aim is to primarily make a profit selling probably what they bought off the internet.

We, at oxenMINE, place a strong emphasis upon keeping the tutor fellowship restricted to graduate students (including teachers, lecturers and professors) – with a high specialization in the field they tutor or provide solutions (usually a Master’s and atleast a Bachelor’d degree). We are also one of the most internally observed and quality controlled sources – taking pride in being one of the few genuine sources of quality tutorials today.

One of the ways we ensure this in principle is offering students the option to receive only limited help. Students may choose to receive between ‘Basic help’ or ‘Advanced Help’ – instead of going for the MUCH costlier ‘Complete Tutorial’ option, and specify what aspect of the tutorial they need the help to be focussed upon – and pay accordingly. This enables us to ensure students do not abuse the services we provide and submit what they buy from us toward a proctored project, besides reducing the chances of our own tutors violating their own copyrights.

Additionally all our tutors – must be part to a binding legal contract to only submit works that respect copyrights and intellectual property rights of others.

In keeping with the spirit, sense and purpose of the website, and as a testimony to the quality of service we strive to maintain – oxenMINE.com will forever maintain a standing cash award of US $50.00 to any person who can prove a violation of their genuine intellectual property rights while following the procedures mentioned in this document – and as determined by the management at oxenMINE.

Additionally, please understand that:

1). oxenMINE.com is a content provider that transmits or stores user content automatically generated by the two classes of it’s users: tutors and students, as defined under the Section 512 (c) of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 1998.

2). oxenMINE.com is always alert toward notices of instances of copyright abuses on its system. Whenever there is a complaint or a suspicion, an investigation is triggered. The outcome may result in removal of such material and/or action against the abuser as deemed necessary and upon legal counsel.
