What is the purpose of this statement? What does it cover?

This online privacy statement describes the information we collect about you online, how we use it, and what choices you can make about that.

This statement does not apply to information collected offline.

This policy does not govern anything that happens on third party websites linked to from this website, including social media platforms or sites mentioned in blog posts or other written features.

What information do we collect?

Whatever you send us. Normally, that would be your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, and sometimes samples of text or complete documents that you want us to look at.

If your project requires a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), please email it to: info@lexicos.ca

How do we collect your information through this website? How do you get my consent?

Mainly through our contact form (https://lexicos.ca/contact-us/ TBA). You may also choose to send us information by email.

When you provide us with information voluntarily to request service or complete a transaction, we assume you are giving us consent to collect it and use it for the stated reason.

If we ever want to have your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you for your consent or provide you with an easy way to “opt out”.

What do we use your information for?

  • To respond to questions and feedback from you
  • To prepare and send you a quote for service, at your request
  • To make sure we’re sending completed work to the right place, whether it’s an email address or a cloud-based file sharing service
  • To invoice you and process payments properly
  • Occasionally, to follow up with you after work is completed.

How do we protect your information?

With a secure server, and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) file transferring.

Who do we share your information with?

Nobody, except for service providers who form part of how we conduct business, like website hosting providers and accountants. Those people may have access to some of your information in order to do their jobs, but we have agreements with them to keep that information confidential.

We’re obliged to mention that this policy can be overruled by a court order or other legal proceeding that deems it necessary to hand over your information. We’d rather you didn’t send us anything incriminating.

Intellectual Property

The contents of our website is all ours. Anything you send us remains all yours. This extends to include new versions of your texts we create for you when you hire us to translate or edit them.
