Abby Huber, Translator – Website Privacy Policy for www.ajordanhuber.com

 

Who am I?

 

My name is Abby Huber and I am a self-employed/freelance translator and interpreter. I strive to maintain compliance with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on May 25, 2018.

You can contact me as follows:

 

 

 

Why do I process your personal data?

 

I collect, store and use your personal data for the following purposes:

 

  • to issue quotes and invoices,

 

  • to provide a translation, interpreting, or editing service as requested by you,

 

  • to request an editing service from you,

 

  • to comply with legal requirements,

 

  • and (if you opt in) to add you to my email list for updates.

 

Personal data collected may include your name, postal address, email address, telephone number and VAT number. Personal data may also include banking details, personal information on résumés, or information on documents sent for the express purpose of translation or editing. All data is processed on password-protected computers and is not accessible by third parties.

I do not disclose or sell your data to unauthorized third parties.

 

 

Legal Grounds

 

The legal basis for processing your data is to perform the translation, interpretation, or editing services that you request or to take necessary steps prior to fulfilling that request (“performance of a contract”), which may involve engaging the professional services of an editor. This basis also applies if you provide me with a service.

 

Who else may have access to your personal data?

 

If I outsource a text containing personal data for editing by a colleague, I will make sure that the colleague also has responsible privacy practices and will process the document accordingly.

For administrative purposes, other parties, including the providers of my cloud backup and email hosting services, may have access to your personal data. All these parties are also compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation, or in the case of US companies, are self-certified under the US Privacy Shield framework.

 

 

How long do I keep your personal data?

 

I need to keep your personal information for various reasons, for example to carry out accounting, invoicing and business administration processes, and in case it is necessary for me to prove, in the future, that I have carried out a particular translation, particularly in the case of certified translations.

I will keep your personal data for 15 years unless you ask me to delete or remove it sooner. You have the right to access, rectify or request erasure of your personal information, subject to any legal data retention requirements with which I have to comply. Should you ask me to delete translations before the 15-year period has expired, I cannot be held responsible for queries or claims relating to the content, as I have no way of verifying the accuracy of the original content.

I may need to disclose your personal information to authorized agencies if required by law.

 

 

How do I keep your personal data secure?

 

Your personal data is periodically backed up on a device other than that used on a day-to-day basis. The copy is stored in a secure place, separate from the computer containing the original files, so that personal data can be recovered in the event of loss or damage.

All electronic systems used for storing or processing personal information are password protected.

Google Analytics

 

Based on my legitimate interest, i.e. my interest in analyzing and optimizing my online, I use a third-party service, Google Analytics, which is Google’s web analysis service.

Google Analytics collects standard internet log data and details of visitor behavior patterns, such as the number of visitors to the various parts of a website.

This data is only processed in a way which does not identify visitors.

 

I neither make nor allow Google to make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting my website.

The user information generated by Google cookies regarding my online offer is normally transferred to a server and stored in the USA.

Google is certified by its Data Processing Agreement for Europe, and therefore complies with European data privacy regulations.

My website may also include social media features, such as ‘share’ or ‘like’ buttons. These features are provided by third-party social media platforms themselves (LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram).

If and when data is collected via your interaction with social media features, its processing is governed by the privacy policy of the respective social media platforms.

 

Your right to access your data

 

You may contact me at any time to request a copy of your personal data, or to ask me to rectify or remove the information I hold. I will take action without undue delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request.

 

Your right to lodge a complaint

 

If you have any concerns about how I process your personal data, please contact me or the appropriate supervisory authority.
