Information Collection and Use
The client maintains ownership and copyright over all of the client's materials. Additionally, WordSharp does not require credit or acknowledgement beyond the fees for services rendered, although, it is a commonly accepted practice for some writers to credit us as their professional editor and this is always appreciated.
Submission Confidentiality and Security
WordSharp takes the issues surrounding classified and confidential texts and intellectual copyright very seriously. Only our writing editors and staff have access to a client's submission. Each member of our team has signed a Confidentiality Agreement ensuring they will not, under any circumstances, share a client's work with anyone outside of WordSharp. Therefore, WordSharp guarantees that no part of a client's text submitted for proofreading or editing will be compromised, disclosed, appropriated by or shared with anyone for any reason whatsoever. Unless requested otherwise, files may be expunged after sixty days. If a client requires a separate non-disclosure agreement, they may contact WordSharp. Due to our strict confidentiality policies, WordSharp does not release a client's information or the titles of edited materials.
WordSharp makes use of the most powerful and updated security measures including the industry standard in encryption (128-bit secure socket layer). This is the highest level of security commercially available and is the same standard of security used in cash machines (ATMs) and by many retail stores.

The entire payment process is conducted through Square or PayPal's secure website, which both adhere to global PCI (payment card industry) compliance standards for data security. No banking information or credit card data is ever collected or stored by us.
