WHAT PERSONAL DATA IS COLLECTED?
In order to provide the necessary services, the following personal data may be collected:
CLIENT CONTACT DETAILS
In order to carry out the tasks you assign me, I will need your precise contact details. These include your name-surname, phone number, email address, postal address, etc. This data is provided by all clients when they contact me to assign a task. The data is used exclusively for the purpose of making proper arrangements, enabling me to carry the task you have requested, providing information about the progress or completion of work, and sending translations in electronic format by email or in hard copy by courier or ordinary mail. The data is stored digitally in a local computer file, on a mobile phone or in my email address book. Only I have access to that data. Your contact details are never disclosed to third parties.
CLIENT TAX DETAILS
Your tax details are necessary for the purpose of invoicing the work done and issuing Pos to associates. These include your name-surname or corporate name, occupation or field of employment, Tax Reg. No., tax office details, registered offices or home address, etc. All clients provide such data when a task is assigned at the start of our collaboration. This data is used to issue the documentation required by law (invoices, receipts), to send quotes and to submit the tax returns required by law. Your tax details are sent to an accountant with whom I collaborate so that the latter can handle my tax affairs in the manner mandated by law.
PERSONAL DATA CONTAINED IN TEXTS SENT FOR TRANSLATION
In many cases the texts you send for translation contain your own personal data or that of third parties. Certificates are documents of this type. Some texts may also contain sensitive data. In order to provide the service you request (translation), I am obliged to store and process the personal data and sensitive data contained in the documents to be translated. Storage and processing are done locally on my computer which only I have access to.
PERSONAL DATA OF MINORS
The personal data of minors aged under 15 is only collected and processed with the approval or consent of their parents.
