EV Proofreading uses the following products to conduct business:
G Suite/Google Apps (Gmail)
Wix (Website Hosting and Contact Form)
EV Proofreading uses Freshbooks for invoicing purposes. Information stored within the Freshbooks system includes client name, client address (if available), client email address, and project invoices, as well as a record of payments received. Payments made through Freshbooks invoices are completed using the payment method of the client’s choice: PayPal, bank transfer, or credit card via Freshbooks Payments. EV Proofreading does not receive any payment data except the date/time payment is made, the amount paid, and the method of payment (PayPal, bank transfer, or credit card via Freshbooks Payments).
If the business-client relationship is terminated, the client can request that they are deleted from the client contact list. Invoices would remain intact for seven (7) years per IRS guidelines.
G Suite/Google Apps (Gmail):
EV Proofreading uses Gmail through Google Apps for client correspondence. Contact forms completed through the EV Proofreading website are transmitted to the evproofreading.com email address through Google Apps/Gmail. Emails received contain the name, email address, and message sent from the client, as well as the date/time the message was sent. Client information is not made available for remarketing, advertising, or bulk mailing.
Google Analytics for EV Proofreading retains user-level and event-level data associated with first-party cookies, user-identifiers (e.g., User-ID) and advertising identifiers (e.g., DoubleClick cookies, Android’s Advertising ID, Apple’s Identifier for Advertisers) for a period of twenty-six (26) months. This retention period resets with each new event from a user. Data associated with the user identifier will be deleted automatically after the retention period. Data obtained through Google Analytics through EV Proofreading is not made available for remarketing or advertising reporting features.
Information collected by Google Analytics includes browser, session length, reconnects, and general geographical location. Protected user information such as names, contact information, or specific location is not included in the data that EV Proofreading collects through Google Analytics. EV Proofreading has implemented IP Anonymization through Google Analytics to ensure that the entire IP Address is not stored to protect users’ confidentiality.
