The Way We Use Information
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order, fulfill the requested services, and send communications related to our service if you register (for example, we may send a “thank you” package for your patronage). We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. Typically, we share the necessary information with our editors in order to proofread your documents.
We will send you strictly service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive
them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. To accomplish this type of analysis, we use both cookies and log file data.
As with most standard website servers, we use log files. This includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information, except to prevent fraud.

In certain situations, Proof Reading, LLC may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
