When I talk about “personal information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about device information and personal information you provided through a contact form or email.

 

I use the personal information that I collect generally to;

 

Communicate with you, provide services you have requested, providing you with quotes, invoices and/or order confirmations. Ask for your comments or feedback on my services, to communicate regarding additional services that may interest you and to notify you of changes to my services, terms and policies.

I maintain the rights to use and store your personal information for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract I hold with you. You may at any time contact me and ask for your personal information to be deleted from my systems, archives, and all third-party services I use and where your information may be stored.

If you have been invoiced by me for services, you may ask me to retain only the most minimal personal information needed for my business archiving, annual accounting and auditing.

I review my retention of personal information every 6 months. Your source materials or documents which I receive to perform my services will be automatically erased upon confirmation of completion of the service unless otherwise specified or agreed.

TRANSLATION MEMORIES AND CAT-TOOLS

To facilitate my work I extract and compile translation memory from clients’ source material using CAT tools (Computer-assisted Translation Tools). Any personal data, when entered into the the TM base, will be anonymized and effectively scrambled into segments and  the data subject cannot be identified. My TM base is kept in a secure way and the access to it is restricted and protected by passwords. I will not share the TM base with other translators or any third party, unless we agree to it.

If specified in the contract, I am willing to agree not to use TM from projects worked on for one client, with another client. I am also willing to agree to perform work remotely on tools/applications/portals controlled by you as a client. 

STANDARD SECURITY PRACTICES

I have endorsed Proz.com guidelines for professional translators and I take all possible precautionary measures to guarantee that your personal data is safeguarded.

I do not discuss confidential project content with unauthorized parties.

I do not disclose my clients' identities or contact information, or the identities or contact information of their clients or vendors, without first obtaining permission to do so.

I consider all communications with clients to be confidential and do not disclose emails or other such correspondence.

I consider reference materials to be confidential; I do not share such materials, and would not use them on other client's projects, without permission.

All electronic systems in use for storing or processing personal information are password-protected and up to date. All incoming/outgoing files are scanned for viruses and malware.

I understand how to, and am willing to agree to, use an encrypted VPN for file transfers and communication.

In the event that documents are printed during the translation process (e.g. for final edits), these will be shredded and disposed of once the project is complete.

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFO

I do not outsource any of my translation/editing work, unless we agree to it. In that situation I will make sure that the colleagues in question are GDPR-compliant and will process your information accordingly.

I may be required to share some client data to other parties for financial reasons, annual accounting or auditing,  All these parties are also compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
