Refund Policy

To ensure that our customers are familiar with our product and its quality, we provide a 30-minute free trial of our software. We, therefore, do not offer refunds based on the level of satisfaction with the quality of the end-product. In case a technical error occurs, we will do everything we can to resolve the issue or compensate for any lost transcription-time. Should you have any issues or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us via [email protected].

In the case of a premium plan subscription, the minimum duration of this subscription is two months. You will, therefore, even if you cancel your subscription after one month, always be billed for two months. We, therefore, cannot offer a refund for the second month in case you have unsubscribed in the first month, or in cases that you forgot to cancel at all.

Content on the website

All content on the AmberScript website is protected by copyright and other intellectual property rights.  You are not allowed to copy or license any of the AmberScript website content without the written permission of AmberScript.

Service Agreement

  1. AmberScript aims to be fully operational 24 hours a day. However, if for any reason the website is unavailable, the company is not liable
  2. When registering for our services, customers must choose a password. Users are responsible for keeping their password confidential.

AmberScript shall deliver editable transcripts of the audio/media files within 95% of the time when the following criteria are met:

  • The uploaded audio or media files are not bigger than 1 GB.
  • Not more than 10 files are uploaded simultaneously.

In case of the following rare events, AmberScript is not bound by the service agreement concerning editing time:

  • Scheduled downtime.
  • Events outside reasonable control.

If AmberScript fails to meet the editing time and none of the rare circumstances are applicable, users will receive a voucher for 3 audio hours.

AmberScript does not have any obligation of a result to its users. The quality of transcriptions is heavily dependent on the quality of the audio. Background noise, low quality microphones and strong accents can all lower the transcription quality. Users themselves are responsible for testing the transcription quality and the expected results. AmberScript never gives refunds due to disappointing transcription quality.
