Data Protection Declaration
Recording and use of data
Your data will be used (made subject ot storage, modification, transfer, blocking, deletion or used in any other way) under the terms of the applicable provisions of German telemedia law relating to data protection and of German law on data protection.
Personal details will be used exclusively to facilitate the provision of services required by our clients (for use in preparing and delivering translation or localization tasks, quotations, comparisons with previously recorded data, etc.), for drawing up contracts and for ongoing improvements to our online range of services. The term "personal details" should be understood as referring to information on the identity of a particular person. When filling in our contact form, you will be asked to indicate the following personal details:
- First name
- Last name
- e-mail address
Use and transmission of personal data
Your personal details will be used by us and by associated businesses and their affiliates only in accordance with this data protection declaration and/or with other regulations that demand at least an equivalent standard of protection. We will only release personal details to other third parties under conditions set out below.
We record and save all data that you have entered on our website forms or otherwise transmitted to us. These data will be used for legitimate business processes only (drawing up quotations, creating invoices, etc.). Where contact is made via our form or by e-mail, your e-mail address will be saved automatically, though it will of course be deleted immediately upon request.
Amongst other resources, we may use publicly accessible (business) directories for sending promotional mailings. Your data will be saved by us in order to allow us to make initial contact and will be passed onto the German post office (or other providers of postal deliveries) exclusively for the purpose of sending our mailings to you.
During completion of translation, localization and other tasks we will pass your details on to third parties (translators) only if entirely unavoidable – for instance, where the document to be translated contains your address data – or with your previous agreement.
In all the cases detailed above, we and our service suppliers commit to treat your personal details in complete confidentiality. We will delete any or all of your data from our databases immediately upon request.
We do not pass on your personal details onto any other business or organisation, unless required to do so by law – for example if we are required to submit them by an order from a public institution or court.
