Your personal data is safe

I am fully compliant with the current data protection law (GDPR) and I maintain client confidentiality. My privacy policy outlines how I collect, process and store any information you provide when you contact me about my proofreading service. By using this service, you agree to the collection and use of your data in accordance with this policy.

I will collect basic details for the purpose of your initial enquiry, limited to your name, postal address, telephone number and details of your project. I will use this information to respond to your request, to provide a quotation and details of my availability, and to contact you during an ongoing project. I store any data I collect securely (on paper or electronically with password protection and anti-virus software). I hold this data solely for the following purposes:

  • to contact you in response to an enquiry, a quotation or a contracted booking.
  • for compliance with tax authority (HMRC) requirements (up to seven years).
  • to maintain professional records of work for training and development within the CIEP.

I will never use your personal data or disclose it to third parties for marketing or promotion purposes without obtaining written permission in advance (e.g. to publish a testimonial on my website or social media). Data will be kept for no longer than necessary for the purposes above. Individuals have the right to request access to their data and to rectify or erase data in certain circumstances, in accordance with data protection law.

Your project is confidential

Client confidentiality stands at the heart of what I do.

You can rest assured that I keep all work and personal data you send to me for proofreading services confidential at all times.

At no time will I share or upload your personal information for any purpose.

I may need to use a secure file transfer service for large documents. I use a trusted service that is reliable and confidential. Please contact me if you would like further information on the service I use.

As a member of the CIEP, I am bound by its Code of Practice.
