Who am I?
I, Victoria Seymour, am registered as a sole trader, operating as Seymour Proofreading, offering freelance proofreading services to a variety of clients.
What information do I collect from you and why?
When you contact me, I request the following:
your email address for me to respond to you
project details and sample
If we agree to work together, I collect the following additional information:
postal address to be used on invoices to fulfil my contractual obligation to HMRC
file(s) required for the work
Where do I store the data?
Emails are stored on my password-protected email account. I do not have an external address book.
Files are stored on my password-protected computer until I have returned the work and can then delete it when you ask me to.
How long do I keep this data for?
Your personal data, i.e. name and address, is kept for a minimum of seven years to comply with my obligations to HMRC.
Unless otherwise agreed, I will keep your files for the same length of time, though I am happy to delete them sooner if you request this.
Do I share your data?
Unless I am audited by HMRC, I do not share your data with anyone.
My website has been set up so that you can leave your own testimonial. I have done this so you can be confident that the only details that will appear on my website will be the information you provide when submitting your testimonial.
I do not subcontract work, nor do I discuss your project with third parties or on the internet/social media without prior permission. If I cannot take on a project, I may provide details of other proofreaders for you to contact. At the same time I will let the aforementioned proofreaders know your first name and to possibly expect you to get in touch. I will provide no further details to the potential proofreader.
I do not place cookies on your computer, nor do I use any paid-for advertising features to gain personal data.
I ask all new clients to sign and return a copy of my terms and conditions. By doing this you (the client) are actively accepting my terms and conditions and I am in compliance with the GDPR regarding consent.
If you have any questions about what data I have about you or want me to remove you from my systems, please contact me.
