I, Victoria Lawson-McKittrick, operating as Themethodicalproofreader, offer freelance proofreading services to a variety of clients.
What information do I collect from you and why?
When you contact me, I ask you for the following:
- your name
- your email address
- a sample of your work (this is optional, and sometimes it is not provided at this stage)
If we agree to work together, I collect the following additional information:
- postal address, to be used on invoices
- file(s) required in order to be able to carry out the agreed work
This site contains a form that you can use to provide me with details about your project, or a sample of your work, in order for me to provide you with a professional quote for proofreading services.
Where do I store the data?
Emails are stored on my password-protected email account.
Files are stored on my password-protected cloud-storage account. If you prefer, I can store the work files on my computer’s hard disk until I have completed and returned the work to you, then I can delete the files at your request.
How long do I store the data?
Your personal data, i.e. name and address is kept for a minimum of seven years to comply with my obligations to HMRC, the UK tax authority.
I will keep your files for the same length of time, unless you ask me to delete them sooner, in which case I will delete them at your request.
Who do I share your data with?
I will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless I am required by law to do so.
If you agree to provide a testimonial for my website, I will include the name and details you provide.
I do not use any paid-for Google advertising features to gain personal data.
If you have any questions about what data I have about you, or you would like to be removed from my systems, please contact me.
