Please do not supply any other person's personal data to me unless I prompt you to do so.

Providing your personal data to others

I may disclose your personal data to my insurers and / or professional advisers insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes of obtaining or maintaining insurance coverage, managing risks, obtaining professional advice, or the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, whether in court proceedings or in an administrative or out-of-court procedure.

I may disclose your service, enquiry, customer relationship, transaction, correspondence and / or service data to my suppliers or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the performance of a contract between you and me and / or taking steps, at your request, to enter into such a contract, but never without asking you to consent to this disclosure beforehand.

International transfers of your personal data

If you have agreed to my subcontracting translation or related services to subcontractors that I work with, I may transfer your personal data to countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area (EEA), e.g. Switzerland, the United States or Canada. The European Commission has made an "adequacy decision" with respect to the data protection laws of each of these countries, which establishes that they ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data by reason of their domestic law or the international commitments they have entered into. The effect of such a decision is that personal data can flow from all EU and the EEA member countries to those non-EU countries, without any further safeguards.

Retaining and deleting personal data

Personal data that I process for any purpose shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose. In some cases, e.g. when undergoing a tax audit, it is not possible for me to specify in advance the periods for which your personal data will be retained. In such cases, I will determine the period of retention based on their relevance for tax purposes. Moreover, I may retain your personal data where such retention is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which I am subject, or in order to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

Amendments

I may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on my website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you are happy with any changes to this policy. I may notify you of significant changes to this policy by email.

Your rights

In this Section, I have summarised the rights that you have under data protection law. Some of the rights are complex, and not all of the details have been included in my summaries. Accordingly, you should read the relevant laws and guidance from the regulatory authorities for a full explanation of these rights. Your principal rights under data protection law are as follows:

You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not I process your personal data and, where I do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information, e.g. details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, I will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee.

You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; I no longer need the personal data for the purposes of my processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, I may continue to store your personal data. However, I will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

You have the right to object to my processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in me; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by me or by a third party. If you make such an objection, I will cease to process the personal information unless I can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You have the right to object to my processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, I will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

You have the right to object to my processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

To the extent that the legal basis for my processing of your personal data is consent or that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract, and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from me in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

If you consider that my processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

To the extent that the legal basis for my processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to me.
