Information I collect

This website uses cookies, small text files that are placed on your machine to help the site give you a better user experience. If you prefer, you can disable cookies or adjust the settings in your browser so that, for instance, they are deleted when you close it.

When you get in touch to enquire about either the copy-editing or proofreading services I offer, I collect only the bare minimum of information needed to carry out the work requested. This will usually be your name and email address, details of the project, and a sample so that I may supply you with a quote.

Emails are kept on my password-protected account. I do not use an external address book. If you decide to hire me, I will keep copies of important correspondence regarding the brief for at least six months.

Any files that you send me to work on will be kept on a password-protected computer that only I have access to. This computer has anti-virus software loaded, which is updated on an almost daily basis. When I have finished with your files and you are happy with the work, I will move them to an external hard drive and set a password for any Word documents. I will keep copies of the finished work for at least six months.

I will never give or sell your data to a third party, and neither will I use your personal details for marketing purposes.

If you have any concerns regarding the above, please let me know and I will do my best to answer your query, or delete any data that you wish to have removed.
