On this website, the website operator is responsible for data processing. Their contact details can be found in the legal notice.

How do we collect your data?

For one, your data is collected when you provide us with it. This might be data that you enter in a contact form, for example.

Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system, time of page view). Such data is collected automatically as soon as you access our website.

What do we use your data for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have with regard to your data?

You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time free of charge. You also have the right to request the rectification, blocking or deletion of this data. You are able to contact us about this and other questions relating to data protection at any time using the address provided in the legal notice. You moreover have the right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour may be analysed statistically. This primarily takes place using cookies and so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; your surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it entirely by not using certain tools. See below for details.

You can object to analyses – we will inform of your options to object in this privacy policy.

General and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data extremely seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations as well as with this privacy policy.

When you use this website, various items of personal data are collected. Personal data is all data that allows you to be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this takes place.

Please be aware that security loopholes may arise during the transmission of data via the internet (e.g. during communication via email). Unfortunately, we are unable to protect data entirely from access by third parties.

Note on the responsible body

The responsible body for data processing on this website is:

Sina Göttmann
Conference Interpreter (MA) and Specialised Translator
Franz-Gruber-Str. 24
64823 Groß-Umstadt
Germany

The responsible party is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Withdrawing your consent to data processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You are able to withdraw your consent at any time. Informal notification via email is sufficient for this. The lawfulness of the data processing completed up until you withdrew consent shall remain unaffected by your withdrawal of consent.

Right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority

Right to data portability

You have the right to have any data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. Should you request the direct transfer of data to another responsible person, this will only take place insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders and queries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the change in browser address from “http://” to “https://” and the appearance of the lock symbol in the browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to free information on your stored personal data, its origin and recipient(s), the purpose of data processing and, where applicable, also the right to have this data rectified, blocked or deleted. You are able to contact us at any time via the address provided in the legal notice regarding this and other matters relating to personal data.

Objection to advertising emails

Objection is hereby raised to use of the contact information published as part of the duty to provide legal information for the transmission of unsolicited advertising and information materials. The website operator expressly reserves the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising materials (e.g. in the form of spam emails).

The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically sound and optimised provision of their services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are handled separately in this privacy policy.
