Who i am

Hello, I am a freelancer offering copyediting and proofreading services, and doing business as (also known as “DBA”) “Owl Pro Editing.”

My website address is https://owlproediting.com

What personal data i collect and why i collect it

The only personal information I collect is that which you provide voluntarily via the contact form on the “Contact” page of my website, via my email address Ursula@OwlProEditing.com, or any other direct contact from you.  

Unless you request otherwise, I may use the information you provide to me as follows:

  • to respond to your request for information, quotations, editorial assignments, or the like and any related subsequent communications
  • to contact you regarding new opportunities to collaborate on editorial projects
  • to analyze traffic to/on my website
  • to continually improve my website and related content

I use third-party service providers to operate my business, including to manage my domains, website, Facebook pages, email accounts, and internet service. To the best of my knowledge, these service providers do not collect your personal information for any purposes other than to assist me in my interactions with you as listed above, and do not sell or rent your information to unrelated third-parties.

Such third-party service providers include but may not be limited to the following:

I will not share, sell, or rent any information you provide to me with other, unrelated third-parties, i.e., who don’t help me manage my online persona, unless I am legally required to do so.

Contact form

I keep contact form submissions for a period of time for customer service purposes (see section “What personal data I collect and why I collect it”).

Additionally, per WPForms, WPForms Lite does not collect any “hidden” personal details about users who submit [contact] forms (e.g., IP address, user agent details, etc), and it also doesn’t use any cookies. WPForms also doesn’t track, monitor, or collect [contact] form entries to [the website owner] in any way. 

Cookies, including tracking cookies

“Cookies” are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behavior information. This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

Note that the third-party service providers I use to operate my business may use cookies, over which I have no control. Please refer to the disclosures and privacy policies of such providers, which include those providers listed under section “What personal data I collect and why I collect it.”

Per WordPress, information about how you use my website is collected automatically using cookies. For additional information, refer to WordPress’s cookie policy at https://wordpress.org/about/privacy/cookies/.

Per WPForms, WPForms Lite (used for my contact form) does not collect any “hidden” personal details about users who submit [contact] forms (e.g., IP address, user agent details, etc.), and it also doesn’t use any cookies. Per WPForms, they also don’t track, monitor, or collect [contact] form entries to [the website owner] in any way. 

You may have the ability to accept or decline cookies using your web browser settings. If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of my website may not work properly or at all.

“Do not track” requests

I do not track individual users and their activity via my website, Facebook pages, or e-mail accounts.

To the best of my knowledge, the third-party service providers I use to operate my business do not track individual users and their activity.

Please submit any “do not track” requests via the “Contact” page or my email address Ursula@OwlProEditing.comand I will do my best to ensure any new data collected about you will not be used for targeted advertising purposes.

Links

My website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that I am not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites.

I encourage you to be aware when you leave my website and to read the privacy statements of any other site that may collect personal information.

Such websites include but may not limited to the following:

Analytics

Currently I do not use an analytics package to analyze traffic on my website, though I may do so in the future, in which case I will update this privacy policy accordingly.

Per WordPress, they by default do not collect any analytics data. However, other third-party service providers I use to operate my business or plugins I use on my website may collect some anonymous analytics data unbeknownst to me.

I encourage you to read the privacy statements of the third-party service providers I use (see section “What personal data I collect and why I collect it”).
