What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The information you provide
Some of the information we collect from you are those you supply us with. Most of our clients provide basic details such as their name, telephone number, and email address, and in some cases full home address.
Other information we collect may include technical information gathered by our website. These may include your login information (which will not include your password), your browser type and internet protocol (IP) address.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
How do we use the information you give us?

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
From time to time we may employ freelance writers. The information we share with these freelancers are, again, the information you supply, and in this case what is written on the documents provided, such as the information on your CV and LinkedIn profile.
They use this information to carry out the service requested and may not use it for any other purposes.
How long we retain your data
Three months after the purchase of our service, a client’s CV, cover letter, LinkedIn profile or any other information supplied, except for the email address and name, will be deleted completely from our system. We retain the email address to keep you updated on our latest blog posts and services. You can easily unsubscribe from these emails. If you created an account when you used our service, this can be deleted easily.
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
We use a secure booking process through PayPal. Although we receive the payment through PayPal, you do not need a PayPal account to use this payment method. It gives you the option to send payment to our PayPal account directly from your credit card or debit card. PayPal never shares details of your credit card or debit card. We only receive the name.
Our website security
Our website is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security, which is regarded as the best system to secure e-commerce trading. This gives our clients a peace of mind when providing information on our site.
To ensure full security, of course, a client has to ensure their device is also fully secured.
