Purpose of the collection and processing of personal data
We may use your personal data to submit a quotation for a (translation) project and/or you may provide your personal data and that of third parties in connection with the performance of services.

Your personal data will only be used for the purposes for which you have granted permission. These purposes may be:

The protection of your personal data

Specific privacy requirements apply to our employees and freelancers in relation to the protection of your personal data. They are required to sign a confidentiality clause upon commencement of employment or before their contract takes effect.

We further protect your personal data by applying a need-to-know principle when providing a service and only giving those persons who are actually working on your request access to your personal data. Employees and freelancers are also obliged to report any loss of personal data as soon as possible.

Your personal data, both digital and in writing, is protected in accordance with the legal requirements. Your documents will only be sent to you in encrypted form. Furthermore, your personal data will not be kept for longer than is necessary, unless there is a legal obligation to keep this personal data for an extended period of time.

When your personal data is no longer needed, it will be either destroyed or returned. That is up to you. You must state your choice regarding this matter in the declaration of consent.
