How is data collected?
Some of your data is collected if you choose to share this with me. This might include data which you enter in the message form, for example.
Other data will be automatically collected by IT systems when you visit the website. This relates primarily to technical data (e.g. details of your internet browser, your processing system, or the time of your visit). This data is collected automatically as soon as you open my webpage.
What is your data used for?
Some of your data is collected in order to optimise the functionality of the website, and to improve your experience of using it. Other data is used for analysis of user behaviour. Data such as your name, your address, and your e-mail address is saved by the website in order that your message can be processed, and your enquiry dealt with. In order to proofread and improve the translations, the documents to be translated are, if necessary, transmitted to colleagues. After your enquiry has been successfully dealt with, your data is deleted.
What rights do you have over your data?
You have the right to request information relating to the origin, recipients, and usage of any personal data held about you at any time, and free of charge. In addition, you may ask that your personal data is corrected, blocked or deleted. If you have any questions about this, or about our data policy more generally, you may get in touch with me using the contact address provided in the Legal Notice. You also reserve the right to submit a complaint or appeal to the responsible supervisory body.

Right to Data Portability
You have the right to request the transfer of data which is automatically processed to you or to a third party, in an accessible, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another party, this will be conducted only if transfer is technically possible.
The website uses SSL/TSL encryption for security reasons, and to ensure the secure transfer of confidential content relating to orders or enquiries. You can see when you’re using an encrypted connection because the beginning of the web address in the browser will change from“http://” to “https://”. A small padlock icon will also appearin the browser.
When the SSL/TSL encryption is activated, it means that any messages or information sent to me cannot be intercepted by third parties.
