Softwood uses fully encrypted business computers and mobile devices that are not used by anyone other than the editor themselves. Emails and documents are password protected.
We make it our duty to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) between a Softwood editor and their client. The wording of which is expressed: "Softwood agrees not to reproduce, give, or show to anyone any material sent to them by the Author, unless the Author expressly states otherwise. The Editor agrees not to discuss the contents of the material sent to them with anyone other than the Author, unless the Author expressly states otherwise."
Upon the completion of a project between a client and Softwood, the manuscript will be held in an encrypted file for a period of 6 months before being destroyed. No physical copies of the manuscript will be made by Softwood at any point during the project.
Once a contract is signed, all communication should be directed privately through email between Softwood and the client. Social media should not be used to communicate any information pertaining to the details in the contract. Any conversations over Zoom are encrypted according to Zoom's own policies and we do not record or keep any part of the video call.
