If you are asked to provide information, it will only be used in ways stated in this policy.

This privacy policy was last updated on January 6, 2023.

Why do I collect data from you?

I gather and use certain information about you in order to:

  • respond to your requests for information (e.g. my availability or a quote for editorial services)

  • allow you to register for a special offer

  • allow me to contact you while an editing project is ongoing

How do I use this data?


The data I collect is used as follows:

  • For my internal accounting processes (e.g. so I can invoice you) and so that I am compliant with my tax authority, Internal Revenue Service, should it request an audit.

  • To contact you in response to your enquiry, order, quote, special offer or booking.

  • To give you access to content you have purchased that resides on my website or

  • To record your agreement to the terms and conditions of my editorial services.

I will never use this data for marketing or promotion purposes without getting your permission in writing first (for example, to publish your testimonial for me on my website), or unless you have signed up to be notified about a specific offer.


How do I use cookies?


A cookie is a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive. It enables my website to identify your computer as you view different pages on my website.

The only way in which I use cookies is for web analytics, specifically Wix Analytics and Google Analytics.

Cookies do not provide me with access to your computer or any information about you other than that which you elect to share with me.

You can use your web browser’s cookie settings to determine how my website uses cookies. If you do not want my website to store cookies on your computer or device, you can amend your settings. Please note that this may affect how my website functions, and some pages may become unavailable to you.

How do I collect your personal data?


I collect and store minimal information via the following forms:

  • Contact form (via Wix)

  • Course order form (via Thinkific)

  • Newsletter signup (via Wix)

  • Email (via Wix)


I will never lease, distribute, or sell your information to third parties unless you give me written permission to do so, or I am required to do so by law.

You can ask me to remove the data you provided at any time. Please note that if your information is being held to enable access to content that you’ve purchased from me (e.g. courses), the removal of your data will remove your access.

How do I store your personal data?

The minimal information I collect is stored on the following data servers:

  • Wix. This is the online service I use to send invoices. Your name, email address and a project summary are stored.


How long do I keep your data for?

Because many of my customers and clients work with me more than once, I do not delete data unless specifically requested to do so.

  • The Internal Revenue Service and the State of Indiana requires me to keep records for four years after the fourth quarter of the year.

  • Please ask if you want me to delete or amend your records. As long as I’m complying with the Internal Revenue Service’s and the State of Indiana’s legal requirements, I’ll action your request immediately.

With whom is your data shared?

No one, unless you request that I do so in writing, or the Internal Revenue Service or the State of Indiana elects to audit my business.
