Confidentiality, ownership, and copyright of documents

As a freelance editor I am committed to providing you with a secure, reliable, and confidential service, to the best of my ability.

I will not share personal information, documents, or business content with anyone other than my client (you), either directly or indirectly. This includes: your name, your mailing address, your phone numbers, or your email address which are needed for assignment purposes.

Submitted Content

PineTree Whispers Editing and Proofreading will not be held responsible for the information within the documents provided by the client, including misleading information, offensive statements, or third party copyright. I reserve the right in such cases to decline the project. If I already  began work on your project and you decide not to continue, I deserve the right to request payment for the work that I already completed.

PineTree Whispers Editing and Proofreading strives to give its clients complete satisfaction, whether it is a proofreading project or an editing project.

However, I don’t guarantee that edited documents are perfect and error free. Clients are responsible for reviewing  edited documents and notifying me of any  issues they find. All corrections are made at no extra charge.

Accuracy of provided personal information

Clients are responsible for providing correct information (name, address, phone number, email address, and payment details) when submitting a project.
