- Industrial Scripts make no warranties, and hereby disclaim any and all warranties, express or implied, concerning any prize furnished or made available in connection with the contest. Industrial Scripts may amend or terminate a contest at any time, and for any reason, without liability of any kind from you or any third party.

- Industrial Scripts is not responsible for any feedback or comments posted or made available on the Website by any third parties, even if that information is defamatory or otherwise legally actionable. In order to protect the integrity of the contest system and protect users from abuse, Industrial Scripts reserves the right (but is under no obligation) to remove any Contest Submission that violates the Terms of Service or negatively affects our Services, diminishes the integrity of the contest system or otherwise is inconsistent with the business interests of Industrial Scripts.
- You acknowledge and agree that you will notify Industrial Scripts of any error or inaccurate statement in your Contest Submission, and that if you do not do so, Industrial Scripts and our partners may rely on the accuracy of such information
Terms relating to Script Coverage, Screenwriting, Script doctoring and creative writing services:
- By submitting your Creative Materials to Industrial Scripts, you hereby agree that:
- You are submitting the Submitted Material voluntarily and not in confidence and no confidential relationship is intended or created between us by the submission of the Submitted Material.
- You warrant that you have originally created the Submitted Material, that no one else to your knowledge has any right to it and you believe the Submitted Material to be original, OR you hold the underlying rights, if the Submitted Material is based on another work. However, you recognise that other persons, including Industrial Scripts or Our employees or affiliate companies, may have submitted to IS or others, or made public, or may in the future create and submit, or make public, similar or identical material that We may have the right to use, and you understand that you will not be entitled to any compensation because of Our use of other similar or identical material.
- You understand and agree that Our use of material containing features or elements similar or identical to those contained in the Submitted Material will not entitle you to any compensation if We determine that it has an independent legal right to use that other material (for example, because the features or elements are not new or novel, were not originated by you (or the writer of the underlying work), or were or may hereafter be independently created and submitted by other persons, including Industrial Script’s employees). You hereby indemnify Us from liability for any and all loss of or damage to the Submitted Material.
- You agree to use the Script Report and analytical material delivered to you for private consultation and educational purposes only. The report itself is the property and copyright of Industrial Scripts, and the comments contained within the report is for use only by the individual Buyer. The script coverage service you purchased is an analysis service, not a marketing or promotional one. Industrial Scripts reports are not marketing or promotional tools. Any unauthorised dissemination or copying of the report, and any use or disclosure of any information contained in them, is strictly prohibited and may be illegal. These comments, the numerical scores we award to projects and the “verdict” We deliver on the Creative Material, and Our company name, may not be used without prior written permission in any public or private arena to endorse, market, or promote Creative Material in any way. In addition, the Industrial Scripts name and comments supplied by Us in Reports may not be used in any funding applications, business plans or financial or creative proposals without Our express prior written consent.
- We aim to deliver all Reports by return email to the Buyer within 21 days of the Buyer submitting the corresponding Creative Materials, post-checkout. For clarity the booking is not officially formalised until the Creative Materials have been uploaded successfully by the Buyer, and Industrial Scripts cannot be held liable for any delays resulting from the Buyer’s failure to complete the upload steps using the automated system designed by Us to handle submissions (DevKing). In the event that the Buyer makes an error during checkout or fails to upload their creative materials correctly, We reserve the right to charge a Manual Administration Fee (MAF) to correct the issue. This policy is referred to in greater length here. We also reserve the right to select in Our absolute judgement, the Industrial Scripts Consultant/ reviewer to provide the Reports, and the Buyer acknowledges that due to complex workloads, requests for the services of a specific Consultant/ Reviewer cannot be guaranteed and is not usual practice so to supply. In the event the Buyer does select a specific consultant at script submission stage, it may not be possible to meet the day turnaround and the Buyer hereby acknowledges that delays may ensue as a result. For clarity and the avoidance of doubt the Buyer is contracting Industrial Scripts the company to ultimately deliver the service in question, and it is Our final decision which Consultant to assign the work to. No refunds are possible in the event of a request for a specific Consultant remaining unfulfilled and failure to provide the services of a specific Consultant does not constitute a breach of this agreement.
- Our delivery timescales are goals rather than guarantees. In a human, bespoke (every screenplay report We produce can be considered custom, rather than off-the-shelf) service business, with continuously shifting workloads and volatile, unpredictable submission volumes in play, We deem it reasonable to deliver all reports within 21 days of successful submission. For clarity and the avoidance of doubt, however, this is a goal rather than a guarantee. In the event We fail to deliver the Buyer’s report within 21 days we will consider but not guarantee appropriate compensation, typically in the form of discounted alternative script coverage. In the event the Buyer has purchased Our Fast-Turnaround option in addition to their script notes, and We fail to honour this deadline then a refund will be provided pro-rata, covering the number of days by which the deadline was missed, based on the extra Fast-Turnaround fee only. For clarity, the additional Fast-Turnaround fee is the only financial aspect of the booking which is affected by a failure to deliver within certain timescales. The “core” fee paid for the script notes (even if a Fast-Turnaround option was added) falls under usual IS terms and conditions of sale. For further information please visit this help desk article.
- We accept the submission of Creative Materials via our proprietary screenplay handling software, DevKing, in Adobe PDF form only. The only other format we accept is Final Draft format (.fdx). We accept – and insist – on this format for Script Proofing and Polishing bookings only. For these bookings we will only accept and deliver using Final Draft documents. The Buyer should receive notification by return email that their Creative Materials have been received. Any Creative Materials submitted either by hard copy or in person will be destroyed.
- We guarantee to provide the Buyer with a certain length of Report according to word count, dependent on which Our service Buyer has purchased. These word counts are clearly specified on the IS Website and represent the minimum volume of written feedback the Buyer is guaranteed to receive. In the event We provide additional pages, beyond the minimum guaranteed, these pages are to be regarded as an additional bonus but are not guaranteed, nor should be expected, on any future reports. In the event We deem a script to be of a certain standard (at our exclusive discretion), we may invite the Buyer to participate in our free bonus script marketing programme, Talent Connector. For clarity and the avoidance of doubt this programme is a free, not-for-profit add-on, separate and distinct from the transaction which occurs between Us and the Buyer involving script services. Its presence and availability is not guaranteed, and is available on a rolling basis at Our sole discretion. Through engaging Us to provide script services We guarantee the delivery of the service in question as described on our website but this does not include Talent Connector. Talent Connector is a complimentary, non-contracted add-on.
- Creative Materials submitted to Us must conform to Industrial Script’s word or page lengths as specified below. Creative Materials which exceed the page lengths specified below are subject to additional fees of $2.00 USD per additional page if they contravene the page limits below. Payment must be received in full for projects which exceed the specified page lengths, before work will commence on the Report:
- Logline: 30 word summary of a film or TV series.
- Short Script: screenplay for a short film under 20 pgs.
- Teleplay Drama: screenplay for a TV episode under 60 pgs.
- Teleplay Comedy: screenplay for a TV episode under 30 pgs.
- Treatment: extended film synopsis under 20 pgs.
- Feature Film Script: screenplay for a film under 120 pgs.
- The Buyer may cancel the Report service and receive a full refund (via PayPal) any time up to 2 hours after the time of their payment providing the booking was not made with a “Fast-Turnaround” request attached. After this time no refunds are permitted, as work has begun and the service will have been deemed to have been delivered within two hours of the Order, and therefore will be exempt from the “Cooling Off” period of the Consumer Contract Regulations or the Distance Selling Regulations. Further, in the event of specific service unavailability, We reserve the right to deliver an alternate service of equal or more financial value, in its stead OR deliver a full refund to the Buyer, at our sole discretion. For the avoidance of doubt refunds will only be processed in truly exceptional circumstances and it is stated Industrial Scripts protocol to deliver an alternate service, in this scenario. As stated above, in the event of a Buyer complaint relating to the quality of the service delivered, it is IS policy to firstly investigate said claims, and then to work with Buyers to resolve their concerns in a satisfactory manner through complimentary replacement service(s). Only in the event of truly exceptional circumstances will refunds be considered, and these are offered at Our sole discretion.
- No termination of this Agreement and no acts of cancellation pertinent to the Submitted Material (such as Us returning it to you) will be deemed to affect our respective rights under this Agreement and all rights will survive any termination or acts.
- Contact of any kind between Buyer and our contractors is strictly prohibited unless the prior express written consent of Industrial Scripts has been obtained. All payments between Buyer and Our freelance contractors must be processed through Industrial Scripts both for work introduced by Us and for any follow on work between the Buyer and any of Our freelance contractors, either for the same Job or another Job. Payment (or attempt of) or commissioning of work of any kind outside of Industrial Scripts is a breach of these terms and conditions unless the prior express written consent of Industrial Scripts has been obtained. Such payment (or attempt of) will entail both Buyer and Industrial Scripts’ contractor(s) to be in breach of their respective agreements with us. The Buyer will be liable for any loss of business and legal expenses that We may incur in recovering lost fees. Buyers must report attempts or offers to make payment outside of Industrial Scripts by their designated contractor to Industrial Scripts immediately. For clarity, whilst a Buyer may come in to contact with one of Our contractors on a script editing or in-person booking, no communication outside the designated working hours is permitted, Buyer is not permitted to exchange contact details with our contractor, or request them, and our contractor (contractually) will be unable to deliver or receive these details. All and any follow on work (including, but not limited to: script doctoring and re-write work; script coverage and consultancy; screenwriting commissions and creative writing commissions; personal script editing be it remote or in person) between the Buyer and one of our contractors must be processed through Industrial Scripts.
Terms relating to Offline Courses & Live Training:
- By purchasing on one of Our live/offline training courses or events, you hereby agree that:
- The course notes, handouts and documents you receive are copyright of Our company and the property of Industrial Scripts and are for consultation and educational purposes only and for use only by the individual Buyer. Any unauthorised dissemination or copying of this course documents or handouts, and any use or disclosure of any information contained in them, is strictly prohibited and may be unlawful under various copyright laws. We always seek to protect Our Intellectual Property to the fullest extent available to Us through the Courts.
- The Buyer agrees that he or she will take all reasonable measures to protect the integrity of and avoid disclosure of, or use of Our Confidential Information, outside the remit of the course, in order to prevent it from falling into the public domain or the possession of persons other than those persons authorised under this Agreement to have any such information. Such measures shall include the highest degree of care that the receiving party utilises to protect its own Confidential Information of a similar nature. The Buyer agrees to notify the Company in writing of any misuse or misappropriation of Confidential Information of the disclosing party, which may come to the receiving party’s attention.
- Buyer may cancel and receive a full refund (via PayPal) at any time up to full days after the time of their booking. After this time has elapsed, no refunds are possible. To cancel, buyer must contact Us via our knowledge base and support ticket system advising Us of their booking details, and which course date they would like to be transferred to (if applicable). In the event the Buyer has purchased an online training course, due to the digital nature of the access and delivery, no refunds are possible from the point of sale. This also applies where Buyer has applied a coupon or discount to any booking. Once access to the online course has been delivered no refunds of any kind are possible.
- In the event Buyer is unable to attend on the course date selected, they are permitted change-of-date opportunity where they may transfer their booking to another course date. Buyer is only entitled to change their booking once, and We reserve the right to transfer this re-arranged booking again in the event the new course date selected is sold out.
- We reserve the right to cancel or postpone live Training Courses at any point, as we see fit, by issuing Buyer with a full refund (via PayPal). We cannot be held responsible for travel, accommodation or sundry other costs incurred and related to the booking and recommend that all Buyers purchase refundable accommodation and travel.
- Where any non-refundable deposits are paid to secure a place on Our course/s and the Attendee is considered a ‘no show’, We reserve the right to retain this deposit and Your statutory rights will not be affected. If a deposit is paid and the place is cancelled less than (one) week from the date of the training event, this deposit may be forfeited.
- For Guests booking tickets to the Insider Interviews Live seats are allocated on a “first-come-first-seated” basis (as included in membership). Once seating is full, only standing room will be available. Disabled guests will be given preferential access.
Terms Relating to Overdrive:
- Through purchasing a subscription or applying to OVERDRIVE, our online membership community, you hereby agree to the following terms and conditions. These terms and conditions are subject to change at any time, without prior written notice. Therefore, please check this page regularly for any changes.
- Member benefits (an up-to-date list of benefits can be viewed here), discounts and services are not fixed and may be subject to change. We reserve the right to make amendments and adjustments to the list of benefits providing replacement benefits offer as much, or more, comparative value. In the event of any disputes regarding value our verdict is final. All percentage discount services are locked, however, and will not be removed although they may be subject to minor change. More benefits will be added over time.
- For clarity and the avoidance of doubt OVERDRIVE’s legal status is that of a Digital Download Product. Due to the digital, non-returnable nature of many of the services and products, no refunds are possible after purchase/application/checkout. Such Digital Format Products are specifically excluded from any rights under the Consumer Contracts and Distance Selling Regulations, and through agreeing to these Terms and Conditions of sale you hereby agree to waive your rights under the -day cooling off period.
- Subscriptions cost £. and are for a minimum of calendar months from the date of purchase, in all cases. We endeavor to assist members with subscription fees by permitting them to spread payments through monthly payments of £.. Members must have an active payment facility in place at all times.

Likewise it is an indisputable reality that although writers and filmmakers feel they are prepared for criticism of their work, and able to deal with it in a thoroughly professional manner, history has proved that this is not always the case.

As stated above, in the event of a Buyer complaint relating to the quality of the service delivered, it is IS policy to firstly investigate said claims, and then to work with Buyers to resolve their concerns in a satisfactory manner through complimentary replacement service(s). Only in the event of truly exceptional circumstances will refunds be considered, and these are offered at Our sole discretion.
- As stated above we are keen to work with Buyers to resolve complaints, however we treat any deliberately mischievous, slanderous, libellous, defamatory or malicious claims or comments that may harm Our Company or Services very seriously, and would suggest Buyers seek legal advice before distributing any negative views, comments or observations in any public or private forum, platform or arena including but not limited to: websites, online discussion forums, journals, articles, social networking sites and any other media be it public or private.
