In the Shed Copywriting / In the Shed Secretarial is a freelance business.  There are no employees, no associates, and no contractors.  I am solely responsible for all communication and information held in the name of business.



Because of the nature work, I am both a Data Controller and a Data Processor. 


As Data Controller, I hold personal information (name, address, tel, email) on my current/active clients.


These are not used for any marketing purposes, nor are they passed on to other organisations – such as other clients - without your consent. 


Being a Data Processor, I also handle data supplied by my clients.  This may include information on third parties (i.e., clients’ customers or suppliers), and I have a Data Processing Agreement in place with all of my clients.


I only hold personal data on current/active clients.  Contact details for previous clients (e.g., those I have not heard from for two years) are deleted. 


I do not hold any information on mailing lists nor do I rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.  In addition, I do not gather data on racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, sexual orientation, any genetic or biometric data, or criminal convictions.




To protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, I have appropriate procedures to safeguard and secure the information held.  This includes:

  • Data minimisation
  • Password best practice
  • Security best practice concerning devices (PCs, laptops, mobile devices), online accounts, website hosting, physical access and storage
