Psst – do you want to know a secret?
Confidentiality is a Big Thing when you're a Virtual Assistant. I’ve a confidentiality clause in my own contracts for clients, but I’m always happy to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) if the client requires it.
I’ve been asked by prospective clients to Name Names ie who else am I working with? I tell them that I have a strict policy of not naming names, and would extend that same courtesy to them should they decide to work with me. I’ll happily tell a client what work I’ve done for someone else (as long as they remain unidentifiable), but never who. After all, if I tell Prospective Client B about Actual Client A, what guarantee will they have that I will not tell the next PCB when they ask the same question? Do they want to be talked about?
I’ve held the bank and credit card details for several bosses in previous salaried positions, complete with passwords etc. And I do the same now, and they’re stored safely in LastPass and some are also in password-protected documents.
I’m registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office so be assured that I’m GDPR-compliant. I also hold a certificate from the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) of the Home Office, so you also know that there are no nasties hiding in my cupboard.
What you see is what you get. Confidentiality. Honesty. Integrity.
