CATEGORIES OF DATA SUBJECTS
We hold data on clients, Project Managers, suppliers, collaborators, and potential clients for legitimate interests.
WHY WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Personal data collected may include your name, postal address, email address, telephone number and tax code and/or VAT number. Personal data may also include special categories such as health information, but only if you send these data to us for the specific purpose of translating them.
We do not use your personal data for marketing purposes.
We collect, store and use your personal data, sent via email or through the relevant form on our website, only to issue a quote, provide a translation or editing service that you request or to comply with legal requirements.
The legal basis for processing your data is to perform the services you request or to take
necessary steps prior to fulfilling that request (“performance of a contract”). This basis also applies if you provide us with a service.
The legal basis for processing special categories of personal data such as health information
is your explicit consent for us to translate, edit that information (“consent”).

If we send a text for editing or QC to a colleague, we will ask your consent to share your personal data or the document containing personal data for such purposes. All our colleagues have signed a Data Processing Agreement. If translations are sent to colleagues based outside of the EEA, the text will be anonymised before it is transmitted.
For administrative purposes, other parties, including our accountants and the providers of my blog, website and email hosting services, may have access to your personal data. All these parties are compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation like us, or in the case of US companies, are self-certified under the US Privacy Shield framework.
HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA
- For quotes, we delete all personal data after 6 months and email communications after 1 month.
- For services rendered, we keep personal data for ten years to comply with tax obligations and, if it is embedded in a translation, to preserve the integrity of our personal translation resources.
