This agreement is made between all clients who contract with COLLEEN SNIBSON EDITING and TWO RED PENS EDITING, and the proofreaders and editors who are contracted to provide services for BOTH, furthermore referred to as CONTRACTED, and the Author, furthermore referred to as AUTHOR.
The CONTRACTED agrees and confirms that any and all work submitted to them by the AUTHOR is the rightful intellectual property and copyrighted material of the Facilitator.

The CONTRACTED will get rightful acknowledgments from the AUTHOR but is in no way, shape, or form entitled to any royalties made after publication.
I, the CONTRACTED, agree to the above NDA, which will remain valid indefinitely.
