Collection of Usage Data
Collection of Personal Data
When you complete a form on the Editione website to ask a question, request a quotation or contract a service, you will be asked to submit some personal data and, possibly, confidential documents. Such information includes, but may not be limited to, name, email address, phone/mobile number, professional affiliation, postal address and the full manuscript to be edited.
Use of Collected Data
Usage data enables our webmaster to monitor the usage of the Editione website and, by this means, maintain and improve the information that we provide to clients and potential clients.
The personal data and confidential documents that you may be asked to submit allow Editione to communicate with you, to provide information requested and to perform any services that have been contracted.
Retention of Collected Data
All data and documents pertaining to clients are handled and stored by Editione in strict and absolute confidentiality. Access to the Editione database is restricted to senior management.
Manuscripts and associated data/documents remitted in support of a request for a definitive/official quotation are stored for a period of four months from the date of delivery of the quotation. After this period, all such materials relating to services that have not been contracted are eliminated from our database.
All materials relating to services that have been contracted are stored in our database until the client informs us of the final outcome of the submitted article.
Disclosure of Collected Data
Editione guarantees not to disclose to third parties any client information without first obtaining express permission, in writing, from the customer concerned. However, Editione reserves the right to use (where legally permitted) information in the database to inform clients/potential clients about our services and/or promotions.
Under certain circumstances, Editione may disclose personal data and/or confidential documents if required to do so under a legally enforceable order served by a public authority such as a court or a government agency.
Security of Collected Data
It is universally accepted that no method of transmission or electronic storage can ever be 100% secure. Although Editione strives to protect your personal data and confidential documents in the most secure manner by ensuring that we, and our web hosting company, employ up-to-date software protection, Editione (like all other companies, both large and small) cannot guarantee absolute security.
