Privacy & Personal Data

Your privacy is very important to me. I will only process your personal information to respond to enquiries and provide the services you have requested, or if I need to comply with a legal obligation. Your personal information will never be shared with third parties for marketing purposes. I have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, altered, disclosed, or accessed without authorisation.

In order to provide you with a quotation or undertake your proofreading or editing assignment I may need to ask you for your email address, full name and full address. This information will only be used for the purposes of communicating with you regarding the quotation or work assignment, for invoicing and for the maintenance of records for official and/or legislative obligations. I do not maintain a database for marketing purposes or issue a newsletter or other marketing material.

Contacting me

If you use the contact form, you will voluntarily be providing your personal information. The information you enter in the contact form is encrypted, as you can see from the padlock icon in the address bar of your browser, and is sent to me by email. Your IP address and all data included in your messages to me will be held in secure log files on the hosting servers. By providing me with your data, you warrant that you are over 13 years of age.

 

Data Retention

I will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

Disclosure of your personal data

I may have to share your personal data with the following parties: service providers who provide IT and system administration services; professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers, and government bodies that require me to report processing activities. I require all third parties to whom I transfer your data to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. I only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with my instructions.

Countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) do not always offer the same levels of protection to your personal data, so European law has prohibited transfers of personal data outside of the EEA unless the transfer meets certain criteria. I will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission have approved as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data by, or US-based providers that are part of EU-US Privacy Shield, as they have equivalent safeguards in place.

Your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives you the right to ask me to confirm, provide, amend or delete any information I hold about you. Should you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact me. I may need to request specific information from you to help confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. Please note that any access request may be subject to an administration fee to meet the costs of providing the information requested.
