COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Visitors to my website are not obliged to provide personal data. Nevertheless, anyone interested in my services can contact me via the contact information provided, and some personal data has to be collected in order to establish communication. The legal basis for processing your data is to perform the services you request or to take necessary steps prior to fulfilling that request and complying with legal requirements.

I collect, store and use such personal data for the purposes of providing the services requested by you (translation, reviewing or linguistic consulting), issuing a quote, issuing invoices and managing communications. I will not use your personal data for marketing purposes.

Categories of data subjects:

I hold data on clients, collaborators, suppliers and potential clients for legitimate interests.

Categories of personal data:

Personal data collected may include your name, postal address, email address, ID or tax number, telephone number, payment and delivery conditions, and financial and bank account details.

Retention of personal data:

Data relating to quotes will be retained for up to six months. In cases of work carried out, I am obliged to retain your personal data for five years to comply with tax obligations. I will delete e-mail communications as well as the documents and personal data provided after five years.

THIRD PARTY’S DATA

By providing me a third party’s personal data you declare that you are authorised to provide me with such data and that you have informed said person of how I will use them and of their right to access the data I hold about them.

TRANSFERS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

I will not share your data with third parties except in those cases where there is a legal obligation to it or when necessary to fulfil the abovementioned purposes.

If I send a text for revision or for any other service requested to a colleague, that text will be anonymised so that your personal data will not appear, or my colleague will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement if necessary. They will be advised of their legal obligations in relation to confidentiality and professional secrecy.

 Other parties may have access to your personal data for administrative purposes, including my website and e-mail hosting services and the data backup system. All these parties are GDPR or Privacy Shield-compliant (please also see the section on security measures below).

YOUR RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS

I take all precautionary steps to guarantee the security, integrity and confidentiality of your personal data in compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, in relation to the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data.

You are entitled to access, modify, erase or contest the personal data that I hold in accordance with the abovementioned EU regulation. Please send your request directly to me by e-mail to info[@]martabauluz.com, and I will act upon this within a maximum of one month from the date of your request.

Please contact me if you have any concerns about how I process your personal data. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory body in Spain or in the country where you live.

SECURITY MEASURES

I take all possible precautionary measures to guarantee that your personal data are safeguarded.

Updates to computers and devices: The equipment used for storing and processing personal data is updated as frequently as possible.

Malware: Anti-virus software is installed on the equipment used for storing and processing personal data, to prevent the theft or destruction of this information. This anti-virus software is regularly updated.

Firewall: Firewalls are in place on all devices used for storing or processing personal data, to avoid remote unlawful third-party access.

Back-up: 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. Should this back-up be done via electronic methods, an encrypted method is used to guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data, in the event of unlawful third-party access.

Technical measures: All electronic systems in use for storing or processing personal information are password protected.

BREACHES OF PERSONAL DATA

In the event of a security breach of personal data, due to theft or unlawful access for example, I will notify the Spanish Data Protection Agency within 72 hours of this security breach. This will include all the information necessary to clarify the circumstances under which this happened. Notification will be done electronically via the Spanish Data Protection Agency online portal: https://sedeagpd.gob.es
