Who I am

My name is Blondine Leon-Broers, and I am the owner of BlueInk Editorial Services, a sole proprietorship business registered in the Netherlands (Chambers of Commerce number 60476567). For inquiries concerning your personal data, please contact me through the contact form.

BlueInk Editorial Services is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This privacy policy sets out how I collect, use, and protect any information that you provide.

Why do I collect data from you

I may collect and store your personal data solely for the purpose of operating my business and to provide you with the highest quality of service—in particular to:
