I appreciate wholeheartedly the importance of maintaining confidentiality with regards to all aspects of the work I do for you. This includes ensuring the security of audio/video files, transcripts, the content of any copy you share with me for proofreading, editing, etc., as well as information you may divulge about your project(s).

You can therefore be assured of my attention and commitment to this at all times.

In terms of the practical aspects of maintaining confidentiality and security, I employ the following procedures:

  • I use Dropbox for Business to enable you to share your files – audio, video and/or text – and to return completed work securely
  • If you prefer to give me your files via an external drive, such as a USB memory stick, then that is fine and I will ensure its safe return to you via Royal Mail Special Delivery at no extra cost
  • Email is used, if preferred, for  returning completed work, such as transcripts, edited copy, etc. using encryption
  • For projects requiring further security, regarding intellectual property or original research for instance, I am more than happy to sign a confidentiality agreement, NDA or any associated document
